I came across a blog, Give 1 Save 1, that raises money for families wanting to adopt. As I understand it, the readers of the blog are asked to give $1 each week, and each Monday a different family or adoption-related group is named as the recipient of all the money donated that week. Adoptions are […]Read More Look what I found
Many moons ago (or maybe just one moon, I don’t know) I spoke to a real college class about international sex trafficking. These were people who paid real money* to learn stuff, and then they came back from their lunch break one day and found me, ready to speak to them for half an hour. […]Read More I have a question. Please be nice.
I recently wrote about Hershey’s being a big jerk and not agreeing to use fair trade chocolate. But I failed to tell you what you could do about it, other than whine on your blog.* So if you’re someone who is really tired of walking into your office’s break room every day and seeing a […]Read More Whining is good, but signing petitions is better
Sometimes I let my ideals paint me into uncomfortable corners. Like in high school, when I was tired of Kenneth Cole using his ads to promote his political ideology, I decided that I should boycott his products. I don’t know if you guys were shopping at TJ Maxx in the late ‘90s early ‘00s, but […]Read More Boo
Here’s an update to my post of 12/16/10. It’s not exactly what people were asking for, but it’s still pretty substantial. SARA JESSIMY KRUZAN, W-59700 “If at the end of court procedures there is claimed to persist a miscarriage of justice, despite all the precautions of the law to the contrary, the ultimate remedy rests […]Read More Update
So I kind of debated about whether or not to write this post because it could be a tad controversial, but then I decided that I feel strongly enough about it that I’d like to talk about it. And Todd said it was okay. Sara Kruzan met her future pimp when she was 11 and […]Read More We’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled blog posts
A young Saudi woman was recently walking through a park with a young man. A member of the Hai’a, the religious police, stopped the pair to ask for proof of their relationship as it’s illegal for a woman to be alone with a man she’s not related to. The man apparently fainted after being confronted […]Read More My New Favorite Person (for reals this time)
Ms. Magazine’s blog is upset because child prostitutes in Bangladesh are being given cow steroids. Brothel owners use these steroids to fill out the young girls to make them appear older. Older prostitutes use them as a food substitute, in addition to taking them for their “beauty” effects. One prostitute said they make her more […]Read More Ms. Magazine Missing the Point Again?
I subscribe to the blog of Tom Davis, the CEO of Children’s HopeChest, an organization serving orphans around the world. Davis blogs about living like Jesus and orphans in general, and also about child sex slavery, which is very close to his heart. Today’s post was what I’ve copied below. I don’t have a way […]Read More How to make a profit selling virgins for sex
“We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer “When a man takes guilt upon himself in responsibility, he imputes his guilt to himself and no one else. He answers for it…Before other men he is […]Read More Bonhoeffer, Childers & Kony
