More from the blogosphere: The Liberal Bible, PP debate tips, recommended reading

Pro Ecclesia points out that there are only three verses in the Liberal Bible:

* Judge not, lest you be judged.
~Matthew 7:1

* Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
~Matthew 7:3

* Let him who is without sin cast the first stone
~John 8:7

I noted among the Scriptures they excised from their Bibles:

* Jeremiah 7:6 "...and do not shed innocent blood in this place..."
* Matthew 25:40 "...whatever you did for the least of one of these my brothers and sisters, you did for me."
* Romans 12:1 "...offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God..."
* 1 Peter 4:9 "Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling."
* Isaiah 49:15 "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?"

They also excised The Parable of the Good Samaritan.

They cut out all the Scriptures about the unborn:

* Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart"
* Psalm 139:16 - "Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be."

And they really blow off Biblical words on social justice:

* 2 Chronicles 25:3 "...The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, or the children be put to death for the fathers..."
* 1 Corinthians 10:24 "Nobody should seek for his own good, but the good of others."

Abortion in Washington recommends three new books on abortion. I'm familiar with two and can recommend them heartily:

Daring women—those who were told not to have their babies due to perceived disabilities in themselves or their unborn children—tell their stories in this controversial book that looks critically at medical eugenics as a contemporary form of social engineering.

Unplanned pregnancies happen to women in every season of life: the newly married, the never-married, the empty-nester, the teenager, the overworked mother, the career woman. Yet we rarely talk about how lonely and confusing this experience can be.
