The LifeSiteNews website has still been struggling on and off today. You will probably find it takes a bit of time for each page to load but they will load. I guess we will have to stop publishing really popular stories until our new server is running at the beginning of September.

Based on the many vile, very hateful comments from gay activist and prop-abortion advocates that are frequently posted under LifeSiteNews stories, it is not so surprising what happened at the Family Research Council building in Washington today. Kathleen Gilbert has written an excellent analysis on it.

In some way related to that issue is Hilary White’s enlightening report on Peter Singer and the extraordinarily negative international influence he has had on bioethics and philosophy. This tells a little more about why there is such seeming ethical madness and lack of respect for human life these days.

The next two days LifeSiteNews fare will likely be very light since all staff are heading off to our annual two day meeting. Tomorrow is travel day and Friday and Saturday the all day meetings take place. So enjoy a brief respite from reading about the trials and tribulations of the world.
