Remembering Richard Harris - "Dumbledore"

The acclaimed actor Richard Harris died on this date in 2002. I most remember him as "Dumbledore" in the first two Harry Potter films. He starred in many films from Camelot, Clint Eastwood's The Unforgiven, to Gladiator, and many more.

Here is a scene from Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone

Here is a tribute to Richard Harris

Because I enjoyed the Harry Potter series so much here are scenes showing both "Dumbledores".

Abortion Mill Workers Defiling Crosses

This is more proof that abortion workers are anti-Christian and working for the Devil.

Jesus, Why?

This poem is dedicated to all those women who suffer from infertility.

Jesus, we know you care but I ask, why?
Our hearts ache for the pitter patter of little feet but none so far...
Jesus, we know you are omniscient and omnipotent but I ask, why?
We follow your will and wish more than ever to be blessed with a little one but none so far ...
Jesus, we know you have a master plan for each of us that may lead us upon a different path than motherhood but we ask, why?

Happy Easter - Jesus is Risen!

Rebecca Hagelin explains that Easter is about much more than bunnies and Easter eggs.  She explains that a study reveals, sadly, that while 67 percent of those polled believe that Easter is a religious holiday only 42 percent recognized it as the feast of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Rebecca said:
 "That’s partly the fault of believers like me. Those of us who believe in the resurrection too often fail to explain the reason for our joy — Christ died and rose to conquer sin and death. His resurrection saved each of us personally and won for us eternal life with Him. But too often we fail to share that truth with others, even at Easter time — when they might be most receptive to the message." 

Have Christians been too private in their faith?  If so, do you think this has played a role in the lack of knowledge that people have of Easter being about the resurrection of Jesus?

Open Thread: Do you consider Abortion a War on Human Beings?

In a recent debate one of my friends on Facebook stated that he doesn't consider abortion to be a type of war. He doesn't even think abortion should be compared to slavery or The Holocaust.  Over a million innocent human  beings have been killed every year by abortions since Roe Vs. Wade.  Abortionists may not use a weapon like rifles or guns but their weapons of choice is a pair of forceps and drugs which are used to kill innocent human life.  I am not sure how someone who is pro-life would think that over one million murdered unborn babies per year should not be compared to The Holocaust.  He thinks abortion is a holocaust but shouldn't be compared to The Holocaust. I think that abortion is worse than slavery.  While some slaves were victims of murder many were not.  The treatment of slaves was horrible but many were not killed so I don't see how slavery even comes close to the horrific nature of abortion.    Do you think abortion is a type of war?  Do you think abortion is considered a type of holocaust? Or compared to slavery?  Should abortion be compared to The Holocaust?

"I'm a Believer" by The Monkeys

I was watching Fox & Friends this morning when they highlighted The Monkeys song called, "I'm a Believer"  and although I can't find evidence of this I believe they mentioned that on this date in 1967 was the first day this song topped the music charts.  It wasn't the release date, or if it was then Wikipedia has gotten their information wrong. I have always enjoyed listening to The Monkeys. Enjoy the music!

Cool Scene from LOTR - Legolas Versus the Oliphant

I always enjoy watching the Lord of The Rings. LOTR is one of my favorite movies of all-time.  A couple days ago was Orlando Bloom's birthday, who played Legolas in the LOTR so I found a pretty cool fight scene from Lord of the Rings to post.

The group would go on to become country music's most successful mother-daughter duo. Her second daughter, Ashley Judd, became an acclaimed film actress.

Edmund Burke on the Religious Animal

"Man is by his constitution a religious animal; atheism is against not only our reason, but our instincts." 
By: Edmund Burke

I found this quote by Edmund Burke on religion and the human person very interesting. I agree with it.  I think to reject religion is to reject a part of self.  I think that is why a majority of atheists have a lot of trouble with the concept of morality and the belief of moral absolutism. I think religion and God is embedded not only within each of our souls but that it is also in our DNA to be a religious people.
