7 Quick Takes: What I Want to Blog About but Don't Have Time

The fact that I'm posting this on Saturday afternoon is a good indication of how out of touch with the blogging world I've been lately. I'm taking a small break from school work and housework to post this before I have to go mop floors.


About the Planned Parenthood Coverups: I've seen the videos from Live Action of the abortion clinic worker advising a person posing as a pimp on how to get abortions for minors he's selling as sex slaves. Boy, do I have a lot to say about THAT. Jill Stanek is asking prolife bloggers to post the video and ask our readers to appeal to Congress for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. One little Quick Take isn't enough, really, but PLEASE... it's high time we quit giving our tax dollars to the largest abortion provider in the country.


About the picture of a little girl I remember seeing a couple of years ago that was posted on 40 Days for Life's web site. She was with her mother at the Planned Parenthood in Richmond, Virginia (the very one that Live Action most recently exposed for aiding and abetting sex trafficking of minors) to spend an hour praying during a 40 Days for Life campaign. Her mother tried to get her normally happy daughter to smile but she wouldn't. Somehow the little girl instinctively knew this wasn't a happy place. Thanks to the brave efforts of Lila Rose and everyone at Live Action, now we know it was even worse than everyone thought.


About the venison dinner I made just last weekend for Cooking Nick's Books--my first time cooking deer meat-- and how some of us thought it was great and others of us discovered that we just don't care for venison. At all.


About the stuffed halibut I made about a month ago, also for my Cooking Nick's Books blog. It was delicious, by the way, and I hope I have time this week to share the recipes with you over on that site.


About the church I attended the weekend I spent in North Carolina for my cousin Greg's funeral, and maybe a little bit about its patron saint, who I don't know much about yet. I might be able to pull that one off this weekend for a Sunday Get Thee To The Church post; although given the fact that it's already Saturday afternoon I might have to postpone it for another week. At least.


About attending Greg's funeral at a Mormon church, my thoughts on what little I know about Mormon doctrine, and about how Catholics and people of other faiths, including Mormons, have more in common than many of us realize.


How Larry's confirmation is creeping up on us FAST and I have no idea what kind of gift to buy him. I'm thinking about maybe a few CDs by some good Catholic artists (It's OK, Larry never reads this anyway). Mom called last week and wanted to know what they could get and I admitted I was clueless. Girls are easy; a nice pretty miraculous medal or a gold crucifix on a chain always works; but for a boy?? Help me out here, my dear readers!

Have a great weekend, and be sure to visit Conversion Diary for more Quick Takes!


  1. Look I am not saying we don't have things in common with the Mormons. And I cannot hide my unyielding love for Donny Osmond (seriously). I think that their morals and family centered values are inspirational. However, they do not believe in the divinity of Christ. They have added a book to the Gospels. Their doctrine of the after life, where one becomes a god and one is married for eternity does not make them Christian, despite the name of their religion the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter day Saints. I am not trying to be divisive, but they do effectively door to door evangelization and people should not be caught aware.

  2. Americans United for Life is petitioing to defund Planned Parenthood, check it out at

  3. Thanks, Mary; I just signed the petition! :)

    Marie, there are a lot of things Mormons believe that are contrary to Catholic teaching (and most mainline Christian denominations, for that matter). BUT, they do believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and He died on Calvary and rose again to save us from our sins. That's a start, don't you think? :)
