Testing the Corapi Destruction Abortion Prediction Internationally

Yesterday I tested Catholic priest and radio personality John Corapi’s prediction that…

If we do not soon stop the genocide of abortion in the United States, we shall run the course of all those that prove by their actions that they are enemies of God—total collapse, economic, social, and national.

… with reference to actual [...]

Strict Madisonian Ron Paul Loosens Up to Push Abortion Agenda

If Ron Paul is so darned committed to opposing any federal expenditure not specifically authorized by the Constitution, then what is he doing cosponsoring legislation that diverts federal money away from services for the poor and toward groups that try to convince women not to have abortions? Anti-abortion intervention isn’t enumerated!

Catholic Religious Imminent National Destruction Prediction Watch

Two nouns. Five adjectives. Imminentish Doom.

On October 17, 2008, Catholic Priest John Corapi sent out an e-mail to his followers in which he made that most dangerous of religious moves, an actual prediction:

“If we do not soon stop the genocide of abortion in the United States, we shall run the course of all [...]

Intercollegiate Studies Institute Civics Test Flunks Out

“Americans Don’t Know Civics,” flatly declares the USA Today headline. Agence France Presse and Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker dutifully follow suit, passing on the press release of the “Intercollegiate Studies Institute.” Americans are expected to recoil, recoil! at the following fact points:

Sarah Palin: Federalist on Abortion, AntiFederalist on Gay Marriage

Sarah Palin explains on October 1, 2008 that she opposes Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to self determination because she thinks states should decide such issues, not the federal government:

Katie Couric: Why, in your view, is Roe v. Wade a bad decision?

Sarah Palin: I think it should be a states’ [...]

Sarah Palin Projects Her Radicalism on Abortion and Women's Liberty

In times like these with wars and financial crisis, I know that it may be easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life, and it seems that our opponent kind of hopes you will forget that. He hopes that you won’t notice how radical, absolutely radical his idea [...]
