The Morning After – Nov. 9 and the Fate of the Nation

October 28, 2016

There is a right and wrong way to vote because elections have consequences. But, after the votes are counted, will you still stay engaged in the process or will you go away until the next election?  Mark spends some time unpacking the Christian duty to stay engaged after the election and not fall into apathy. America is desperate for Christians to not get cynical and pessimistic about the future, but to keep believing and fighting for justice.

100 Parties for PP’s 100th year and the VOTE ANTI-ABORTION Project

October 17, 2016

100 years of misleading women and killing babies isn’t anything to celebrate. Recently, #ProtestPP held 100 prayer vigils to mark the anniversary. In this episode, Mark discusses the fact that Planned Parenthood opposed abortion up until 1970 just before SCOTUS decided Roe v. Wade, but now has become the nation’s top child-killer. 50M babies won’t ever get a birthday thanks to Planned Parenthood. 

Also, Created Equal’s battleground states voter education strategy is discussed.

Is the Gospel the sole answer to abortion-killing?

October 11, 2016

The Bible says the “gospel is the power unto salvation" (Rom. 1:16). As Christians, we understand that in order to have cultural transformation our nation needs Christ.  In this episode of the Mark Harrington Show, Mark compares the abortion holocaust to other tragedies and asks the hard questions about how Christians and the church should respond. Questions such as: is “bridge building” evangelism alone adequate to address mass murder? If dozens of born people were systematically executed every day in your city, would your response be to share the Gospel with those doing the killing or would you do all you could to stop them? Sadly, even most Christians don’t treat the unborn like the born. If they did, we would see more action to “rescue those being led away to slaughter.”

In this second segment, Mark addresses the “trust women” argument that abortion-advocates promote. Please listen and share. 

Court Victory in Stericycle v. Created Equal

September 29, 2016

Mark joins Thomas Brejcha of the Thomas More Society to discuss Created Equal’s victory in court regarding Project Weak Link and the exposure of Stericycle, Planned Parenthood’s top waste hauler. Mark said, “Pro-life free speech and the rule of law prevailed today. Corporate bullies like Stericycle are not immune to exposure for their involvement in abortion-killing. If Stericycle is really concerned about the effects of our awareness campaign on their public image, then they will cease enabling Planned Parenthood by transporting and disposing aborted babies and the instruments used to kill them. If they continue to partner with the abortion industry, the campaign to expose them will continue.” 

Tune in and share in the victory for free speech and defending babies.

A Thug’s Life: How violence is now an acceptable way to disagree

September 23, 2016

Created Equal conducted an outreach at Ohio University on September 16 and was met with a“gender neutral” uterus and jack-booted pro-abortion bandit who had donned a mask and hood. Both approaches show that abortion advocates are not really interested in dialogue or debate but simply want to rely on uninformed students to perpetuate their reign of abortion-killing. Abortion supporters rely almost entirely on the institutions of government and the courts to sustain the slaughter of preborn children rather than convincing the public to defend butchering babies.

Listen as Mark discusses with Jacob Hoback of Bobcats for Life how a pro-abortion ninja warrior pounded our abortion victims with a club.

The Forgotten Victims of 9/11

September 19, 2016

More Americans were killed by abortionists on September 11 than were killed by Islamic terrorists. 3,000 deaths among the 50,000 people who worked at the World Trade Center would mean about one in seventeen was killed. One in three unborn babies is killed by abortion every day. On September 11, it would have been six times safer to be a worker in the Twin Towers than it was to be a baby in her mother’s womb. 

Why did Americans write big checks to the Red Cross and the United Way, but ignore pro-life organizations, which are struggling to raise funds? 

Could it be because the press made the victims of September 11 so painfully real? After all, we were shown pictures of the World Trade Center tragedy on television night after night in the following weeks and months. Grieving relatives were interviewed. Their backgrounds were profiled. The press also made real the horror of the victims' deaths. The sight of airliners crashing into skyscrapers tortured us. We were sickened by pictures of people jumping from the upper floors. We gasped as the buildings collapsed into rubble. The images were published and broadcast until they became unbearable. Thus was forged a national consensus that,somehow, each of us must fight terrorism, personally, regardless of the cost.

Sadly, no such consensus exists concerning abortion -- even in the church.

Are Pro-Lifers Playing “Whack-a-Mole”?

September 6, 2016

Close one abortion center down, another one pops up. For about a decade, abortion mills have been closing all across America.  However, Planned Parenthood has been trying to fill the gap by constructing giant abortion factories in major US cities.  Just last week in Toledo, the shuttered Center for Choice was razed. In DC, Planned Parenthood opened a regional mega-center. Considering this “Whack-a-Mole” scenario, it is hard to see whether we are winning. Mark shares that the real determining factor for our effectiveness is whether the demand for abortion is decreasing overall. On that front, abortion numbers are steadily decreasing. In 1990, abortions reached their peak at1.6M. However, now they are around 1M per year. Along with public opinion moving ever so slowly in the pro-life direction, we are clearly making progress.

Finally, Mark discusses whether he feels building memorials to the preborn are premature since most memorials are constructed after the killing ends. Please tune in every week at 1:30 ET on WRFDam880 in the Ohio area or download the show using Podbean or iTunes.  

As America dumps God, is there any hope?

August 26, 2016

Half of Americans who have left the church no longer believe in God, resulting in a surge of nearly one quarter of the nation who have no affiliation with any religion. This trend is an alarming reminder of how we cannot expect to win the culture war when the influence of Christianity is waning in America. In Ezekiel 9:3-7,  God says He put a mark on those who “groan and lament” over the abominations that were happening, thus marking these saints for protection and favor. Then God had the masses slaughtered--beginning in the sanctuary. Do you groan and lament over the state of America and the church? If not, you need to stop thinking of church as a fun social gathering and start taking seriously our commission to change the world. The apathetic church will not avoid the judgement of God. Mark spells out what must be done in order to turn these troubling trends around.
