Back from the Con!

I'm back from the GodBlogCon which was held in La Mirada, California. It was great to get together with so many diverse people of different faiths in the Christian community. The concept was to unite people of Christian faith who are bloggers and who help represent the word of God through their blogs, hence the name GodBlogCon. How often can you get so many people of all faiths together without every conversation disintegrating into a theological debate?

From the Christian proLife perspective, Timothy Ruchti from wasn't able to make it, but I was there representing and Michael Spielman was there

I accidentally left my wireless cards in Virginia and wondered how I was going to be able to post the daily blog, but I decided it was for the best since it allowed me to focus more on the conference.

I met respectable and knowledgeable people of faith who were sincerely interested in the proLife movement. Perhaps proLife efforts will be represented next year, even if the designated speaker doesn't show up. Michael Spielman from certainly has enough knowledge and experience and could easily have represented us. Not that I'm incapable, but is set up primarily as an activist organization who challenges other proLife organizations and individuals to get involved in a Monthly Call for Life. I could have tailored a message that would have been specific to the proLife movement in general though. Yes, I could have avoided turning it into "my event".

Many people at the Con quickly realized I am a very outspoken individual. I believe God is challenging us Christians to do more then just check the R box on a ballet. I believe if that is all you are doing to help end abortion you are not doing enough. I believe God is challenging us to do everything we can to help save his children and your fellow human beings from the cruel fate of abortion.

How many times have I heard "the aborted children are going to heaven" or "even if Roe vs Wade were overturned today that wouldn't stop abortion" from the Christian community"?

Too many times

These messages and others like these which are stated so frequently in the Christian community are out of place. They project a feeling of helplessness and undermine the efforts of those of us who put so much of our time into stopping abortion.

Many people say my message is harsh. I agree it is, but not any more harsh then when a child is thrown in a trash can, in a clinic or outside of it! People say it is "my cause" and that others don't have the passion to end abortion like I do. I say 4,000 will die by abortion today, as they do every single day. If you don't have the passion, find it.

It was understandable that people got upset when the terrorists struck us on 9/11. The outrage directed at this event, and at others since and before it are proper feelings. After all, if we don't pay attention the past, we are condemned to repeat it. We need that same outrage against abortion if we are going to stop it!

Join the Monthly Call for Life or don't, that is your decision. The next Call for Life day is November 4th. Show up and call, fax, email or march if you want to join us. We will be there no matter what.

For those of you who are so angry at me you just want to yell in my face or totally ignore me, why don't you have that same anger against abortion?

Abortion is not going to just go away. It will take determined, united and coordinated efforts to stop abortion.

I'm sorry if you are not sure where you stand on how much you want to do to help end abortion. is not for those who are in the decision phase, we are there to help those who know abortion is murder and who want to help do everything possible to end it.

Join us once a month in the Monthly Call for Life at where we contact our local, state and federal representatives and challenge them to end abortion. You have many choices of things you can do to help, some of which include calling, emailing, faxing or marching on a local government building. Pick the one that you would like to do and come back on the first Friday of every month to do it.

Perhaps you want to volunteer? Maybe you want to join a different organization like Operation Rescue?

If you are unsure, keep researching different proLife organizations until you find one you want to unite with. There are plenty of them and we all want to end abortion. You can go to and check out the links at the top of the page.

I was glad to see a proLife Democrat at the Con. Abortion is not a party issue, it is a life issue.
