Random Links

Here are some links to things that I found interesting over the past few days. I don't remember how I came upon them all hence the lack of hat tips on some items. Sorry.

Judge Andrew Napolitano's comments on the somewhat notorious “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”. Here is a summary quote:

My guess is that the sentiments revealed in the report I read are the tip of an iceberg that the DHS would prefer to keep submerged until it needs to reveal it. This iceberg is the heavy-hand of government; a government with large and awful eyes, in whose heart there is no love for freedom, and on whose face there is no smile.

HT: Family Journey
This is a long, boring scientific document about the midwifery model of care being better than the medical model. The plain language summary is worth a read. To quote, "Midwife-led care was associated with several benefits for mothers and babies, and had no identified adverse effects." According to this the main circumstance that would make medical care desirable is if you go into labor 16 weeks (or more) early. The study was produced by the Cochrane Library.

I am not really big on hiphop. But I did like the lyrics of this song. If you are a fast listener, give it a whirl. The song is called "Don't Waste Your Life".

Another artist from the same label, has an interesting post about offending without remorse.

Mona Lisa Project

The ladies at Live Action have made another undercover video of the Planned Parenthood cover up of statutory rape. This time in Memphis, TN.

And last but not least, a man in the Netherlands has built a 1/2 scale Noah's ark. I had heard of this before, but had never seen pictures.

Love the Lecrae video. Another guy is Flame. Both of these have solid theological content to their lyrics. One can learn more sound doctrine from these two "rappers" than in many churches!

Hey Scott,

I wouldn't have pegged you as a hip hop person. I will have to look into Flame. Thanks.

I'm not a "hip hop person" per se, but a music lover in general and a lover of sound doctrine. I have very ecclectic tastes, and your post prompted me to do one about these two guys myself.

I'm an oddity. I love loud music, but collect antique hymnals as a hobby...go figure!
