The Paper of Lies

It's a good thing there is no legal requirement in this country to tell the truth in news reporting, otherwise the New York Times would be guilty of committing perjury. The latest offense by the Grey Lady via LifeSiteNews:

The New York Times has once again published another 'hit piece' on the institution of marriage, alleging that for “the first time more American women are living without a husband than with one”. However, US census data for 2005 shows that the January 16th front-page story in the New York Times is just another disturbing showcase of the Times’ tolerance for “journalistic malpractice”.

“For what experts say is probably the first time,” writes Sam Roberts on the Times front page, “more American women are living without a husband than with one, according to a New York Times analysis of census results.”

“In 2005, 51 percent of women said they were living without a spouse, up from 35 percent in 1950 and 49 percent in 2000,” writes Roberts. He adds that now married couples make up a minority of all American households and “the trend could ultimately shape social and workplace policies, including the ways government and employers distribute benefits.”

The plain truth is that Roberts’ findings are at variance with US census reports for 2005, which demonstrate a far different picture from the profiles selected by Roberts of single women “delighting in their new found freedom.”

Pelosi Admits She Supports Legally Killing Babies

Red State points out the following from an Ellen Goodman column about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

Pelosi was not plucked from the kitchen to Congress. The stay-at-home mom label may be politically correct these days but technically incorrect. Pelosi, offspring of a political family, was always involved in a campaign, she says, "no matter how little my babies were, if I was wheeling them in a carriage or carrying them in my stomach."

Did you catch that? Pelosi called what was in her stomach "babies," not fetuses or cellular globs. I wish someone in the MSM would follow up on this and ask Pelosi if she meant what she said, and if so, how she can continue to justify favoring legalized abortion (i.e., the legal killing of human babies while still fully or partially in the womb). Don't worry. I'm not holding my breath.

Rocky Balboa: Servant of Christ

According to Stallone, that's apparently the underlying theme of his latest (last?) Rocky movie. So much so that Stallone developed a kit for Christian ministry leaders to use.

Nice to see, and I understand "Rocky Balboa" is a pretty good flick, but I'm still going to wait for the movie to come out on DVD before watching it. I mean, $10 for movie ticket?! Please.
