Supreme Court fumbles the ball with their decision to ban prayer at HS grid games
    In our editorial in this issue, we give our take on the decision Monday by the Supreme Court. We can't say we're surprised given this allfinity body of justices' track record, but we do ask how long will this trend away from God continue. Only we can make the playing field even and rally by actively campaigning for a pro-life ticket that will replace liberal judges with men and women who value the Sanctity of Life. It's our ball now. But it's also fourth down. Let's not even think of punting, or even just getting a first down, but shoot for the winning touchdown. How? By being powered by the Holy Spirit to take the ball and run with it. It's time to dig in and produce. For the commentary, We don't have a prayer if we accept the Court's decision to sack prayer , see, CATHOLIC PewPOINT

Forget gun control! There's something much worse. If we don't help...and soon, the preborn will continue to be sitting ducks for the pro-abort killers
Pro-Life Prescriptions:

  Today Dr. Frank Joseph asks why so many pro-lifers fall into that trap of calling the senseless and selfish slaughter of the innocents "abortion" when in truth it is "killing." Murder plain and simple. The reason, he deduces is because pro-lifers are too nice and don't want to hurt feelings. Well it's time to get tough and start hurting feelings if it will help save the lives of countless innocents in their mothers' wombs. He shows how if pro-aborts can use the word "choose" why can't we. In addition, he entreats the readers to choose to be heard by endorsing what we first introduced in Monday's editorial: to encourage George W. Bush to choose Alan Keyes as his running mate to assure a solid choice for pro-lifers everywhere. For his column If it's a matter of choice, then we can choose too! , see Pro-Life Prescriptions: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!
