I Can't Believe It!--from the news this week

As most of you who visit this blog know, it is almost exclusively devoted to pictures of the Oster family. Beginning today, I would like to use it occasionally to comment on something near and dear to our family, The Patriot Post.
This week, in reading the post, two cultural issues stood out. Sometimes I have a hard time even keeping up with current events because there are so many issues that I would have to put in the "I can't believe it!" file. I find fiction much easier to believe most of the time. The stories I have copied and pasted below can definitely be summed up with those words. The first is a report on a Planned Parenthood office that is offering abortion gift certificates for sale for the holidays. The second is a story of "The Princess Diana Bible" that rewrites Biblical history with a homosexual bent.
From the 'Non Compos Mentis' File
Warning: Christmas in the Hoosier State may be hazardous to your health -- or your life. Just in time for the holiday rush, Planned Parenthood of Indiana is offering gift certificates applicable to all services, abortions included, in any of the state's 35 clinics. According to Betty Cockrum, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana, the certificates will improve access to health care for the uninsured. Furthermore, Indiana Health Commissioner Dr. Judy Monroe is all for the certificates, calling them "a really meaningful gift."
How utterly sad that these "humanists," as they have identified themselves, disrupt the celebration of the world's most significant birth to give free death certificates to teenage girls.

New Mexico-based Revision Studios is set to publish "The Princess Diana Bible" in spring 2009. This so-called Bible, named because of Diana's "many good works," relays familiar Bible stories in an unfamiliar (not to mention inaccurate) way. Indeed, it's nothing more than pro-homosexual propaganda. For example, Adam and Eve are now Aida and Eve: "And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Aida, and she slept: and he took one of her ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from woman, made he another woman, and brought her unto the first. And Aida said, 'This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of me. Therefore shall a woman leave her mother, and shall cleave unto her wife: and they shall be one flesh.' And they were both naked, the woman and her wife, and were not ashamed." Max Mitchell of the studio said, "There are 116 versions of the Bible, why is any of them better than ours?"
We are reminded of 2 Peter 3:16, which says, "There are some things in [the Scriptures] that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction."
