My reflections and musings on the struggle to leave a Christ-shaped impression on the world of law and public policy.

5 Minutes a Day - Day 4

Yesterday the Richmond Times Dispatch featured my Op-Ed on pro-life activism.  You can read it by clicking here.  Make sure to read the comment, calling God "the biggest abortionist of all."  This is one of the worldviews that lies at the heart of legalized abortion:  that we have just as much of a "right" to control life and death as the Creator.

Now for the daily e-mail:

Day 4 - January 23, 2013 - Senator Phillip Puckett

Senator Puckett is a true "profile in courage."  Representing southwestern Virginia in the Senate since 1998, he has consistently stood against his political party to vote for the protection of life in the womb.  This cannot have been easy for him over the years.  I wish that all of our elected officials were so bold as to consistently vote according to their consciences, without regard to political ramifications. 

Let's take a moment to encourage Senator Puckett.

Dear Senator Puckett,

Thank you for consistently using your vote to protect human life, even though this has required you to defy the will of your party.  You have acted as a statesman rather than an ordinary politician, and I admire your courage.  I am praying specifically for you today.


[your name]
