Sorry it has been so long since we've posted to this blog. It's been very busy with the Christmas Bazaar, a small craft fair and the Family Institute of Connecticut's 20th Anniversary Banquet. A bunch of us went, and the keynote speaker was Austin Ruse of C-FAM at the United Nations. C-FAM is the only pro-life, pro-family NGO at the UN and we need to get this link to everyone who reads this blog: Petition for the Unborn Child and the Family. Please, please take a little time and fill this out. It's super quick, and they need to get a million signatures in a couple weeks. They have over 300,000 more signatures to obtain, but if everyone makes an effort, we can do it. What a nice birthday gift for the Infant Savior. A huge thank-you to Joseph H. of iFIC, (FIC Youth Wing) for getting this to us!
Mr. Ruse is the president of C-FAM, and is an amazing speaker. He was clear and presented to us the impact a few people can have ... for the bad. He was speaking of a treaty called the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), which is overseen by a committee of private citizens, answerable to no one but themselves, who quietly and relentlessly use deceit and raw power to promote "reproductive freedom" as a human right for women. Columbia is one country which has caved to the deceit ... this committee advised them that they are non-compliant with international law regarding reproductive freedom, so Columbia, based on this lie, changed their laws restricting abortion. This is just one example. Go here to read more about this frightening strategy.
Okay, the blog is back on. Blessed First Week of Advent to all, and we won't be strangers anymore! One of our bloggers, Timothy J., is going to be posting a paper he wrote in installments, so keep an eye out for that.
