The Significance of Sunday Morning
4/22/2014 5:44:00 PM
By Father Steve Grunow -Word on Fire Ministries
As we continue our celebration of Easter, we offer Father Steve Grunow's homily on the Resurrection in which he speaks about how authentic faith resists making that Sunday morning's events, and the events of every Sunday morning since, into a mere "symbol" or "metaphor." Here, he explains exactly why.

"She hears, upon that water without a sound, a voice that cries, "The tomb in Palestine is not the porch of spirits lingering. It is the grave of Jesus where he lay...""

Somber words. One should say, inappropriate words for Easter Sunday.

They come from the American poet Wallace Stevens and they are an excerpt from his poem "Sunday Morning." The poem is about a loss and lack of faith in the meaning of not only Easter, but every Sunday since then- for Sunday is enshrined with significance, not because it is a casual day of leisure, but because it is the day when Christ rose from the dead.

Where are the hearts of the fathers as children are deceived?

"This is a test. This is only a test. Had this been a real child-endangering emergency, where children are taught to hate Christians, embrace sodomy and praise sexual anarchy, you would be alerted through the Emergency Broadcast System for Responsible Parents. Then you could act to save your kids!"

And of course, America's conservative parents would do that...wouldn't they?

Well, these atrocities are already happening, perhaps indeed as a test from our Creator, and it looks like a grade of "F" looms as a strong possibility. What's it going to take for the grown-ups in our nation to draw a line in the sand about child corruption?

Illinois rejects ban on reparative therapy for minors with same-sex attraction
4/19/2014 4:00:00 PM
By Kirsten Andersen -LifeSiteNews.com
The Illinois House voted last week to reject a bill that would have banned reparative therapy for minors with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA). It is the fifth state to vote down a ban on the practice in recent months, following high profile debates over the issue in California and New Jersey, which both instated bans last year.

Christopher Doyle, an ex-gay activist and president of Voice of the Voiceless, said following the vote that he thought the decision was a win for free speech and individual medical rights.
