Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

"If I abused a dog in my town, I'd be arrested. If I did abortions again, first trimester, second trimester, I'd be a hero."

A professional gynecologist who during the 1980s performed hundreds of first and second trimester abortions has submitted congressional testimony describing the graphic nature of the procedure. Dr. Anthony Levatino of New Mexico gave testimony Thursday afternoon to the House Judiciary Committee as part of an investigation into Planned Parenthood Federation of America. In graphic detail, Levatino described the process of a Suction D&E procedure, which involves using a sopher clamp to rip limbs off an aborted baby.

"Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard — really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about six inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs."

During the tense hearing, Republican Congressman Randy Forbes of Virginia asked Levatino what he thought if a dog being put down were treated as babies are at Planned Parenthood clinics.

"Every abortion involves the destruction of a human life," responded Levatino, "You know what that [baby] is? That's your son. That's your daughter. Every abortion results in a dead son or daughter. I think it's absolutely gruesome and I think the example you gave just a minute ago is perfect. If I abused a dog in my town, I'd be arrested. If I did abortions again, first trimester, second trimester, I'd be a hero."
