Think About IT: Abortion, the Issue That Divides

By Ronnie W. Rogers / October 17, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Abortion, the Issue That Divides

The issue that divides is whether the legal right to have an abortion for reasons other than to save the life of the mother is right. What do the presidential candidates think? “Barack Obama understands that abortion is a divisive issue, and respects those who disagree with him. However, he has been a consistent champion…

Think About IT: Weak Families Are the Fuel of a Burgeoning Government

By Ronnie W. Rogers / October 15, 2008 /

Why does it seem so often that the federal government really works against the family with such things as taxes that are higher on married couples than if they were single, tax-funded education that undermines stable families, and divorce made easier than setting up a new television? Although I do not think this is conspiratorial,…

Think About IT: Is It a Moral Betrayal and Public Sin or Merely a Problem to Be Solved?

By Ronnie W. Rogers / October 9, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Is It a Moral Betrayal and Public Sin or Merely a Problem to Be Solved?

Senator McCain has been widely and harshly criticized for saying “”If I were president today, I would fire him” referring to Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox. In our scientific liberal culture there are no sins, only broken laws or problems to be solved. Consequently, our present national financial fiasco is a colossal problem,…

Think About IT: Are Lawyers an Endangered Species?

By Ronnie W. Rogers / October 6, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Are Lawyers an Endangered Species?

Sherry Colb, law professor at Cornell Law School, said on a post on the school’s community site that she didn’t fault Palin for having an amniocentesis test, even though others have criticized Palin for doing so in light of her pro-life stance. Colb said, “When a woman is pregnant, she is so intimately connected with…

Think About IT: Senator Obama and Sex Education

By Ronnie W. Rogers / October 1, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Senator Obama and Sex Education

As one would guess, the issue has been demagogued on both sides, and much of the reporting simply obfuscates the real issue. Obama is right that the bill does contain information that teaches children how to deal with potential sexual abuse. It says, “Course material and instruction shall teach pupils to not make unwanted physical…

Think About IT: Is a Candidate’s Church Membership Relevant?

By Ronnie W. Rogers / September 29, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Is a Candidate’s Church Membership Relevant?

The media probes things taught in Governor Palin’s former church, Wasilla Assembly of God, her present church, Wasilla Bible Church, and Obama’s former membership in Trinity United Church of Christ and the Reverend Wright. This probing begs for an answer to the question, “Is a candidate’s church membership or lack thereof relevant?” The answer is,…

Think About IT: Morals Do Not Matter, What We Need Are Better Calculators

By Ronnie W. Rogers / September 24, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Morals Do Not Matter, What We Need Are Better Calculators

I guess the experts were right, people’s morals really don’t affect their job, I mean as long as they are really good at what they do. For example, if a surgeon is an excellent surgeon, what difference does it make if he is an immoral person, or if a lawyer wins cases, who cares what…

Think About IT: Can Abortion Be Compared to Nazism?

By Ronnie W. Rogers / September 22, 2008 / Comments Off on Think About IT: Can Abortion Be Compared to Nazism?

Pro-lifers often draw parallels between the pro-abortion position, Nazi extermination of the Jews, and the Dred Scott vs. Sandford decision 1857, which ruled that black slaves were not fully human and therefore not protected under the U.S. Constitution. Of course, pro-abortionists gnash their teeth at such comparisons, but are they legitimate? Well, not only is…

Think about IT: Does Infidelity to a Spouse Relate to Politics?

By Ronnie W. Rogers / September 15, 2008 / Comments Off on Think about IT: Does Infidelity to a Spouse Relate to Politics?

We are often told that a person’s personal life should not influence whether a voter believes that he or she can serve in public office. In other words, one may be a gambler, liar or a thief at home, but what one does in his personal life has nothing to do with his ability to…

Think About IT: Governor Sarah Palin; Can She, Will She, Should She?

By Ronnie W. Rogers / September 8, 2008 /

As one who cannot vote for Barack Obama because of his pro-abortion position, economic socialism, comfort in Liberation Theology, etc; and one who, while I have respected Senator McCain, has on a number of occasions strongly disagreed with his position, I have found myself actually elated about the McCain ticket. Why? What happened? Well what…
