Stem-Cell Research Initiative Permits All Cloning
By Mary E. Traeger

      The new constitutional proposal coming from pro-cloning advocates is by far the greatest threat to the sanctity of early human life that we have faced in Missouri. The Missouri Coalition for Lifesaving Cures has been formed to tie the hands of the citizens and the Missouri Legislature from regulating or banning human cloning or embryonic stem-cell research.  The Coalition’s initiative is called the “Missouri Stem-cell Research and Cures Initiative.”
    The language emanating from this Coalition blurs the facts of when life begins and obscures the meaning of human cloning.  This well-financed group of biotech interests and private individuals plans to gather 150,000 signatures on petitions to amend the Missouri Constitution. They mean to place a referendum on the 2006 Missouri ballot to keep all human stem-cell research “permitted by federal law” allowable in Missouri, regardless of the funding source. This is an unprecedented, over-the-top endeavor by the biotech industry to shield itself from moral or legal restrictions and would provide permission to ignore universal ethical codes that protect humans from dangerous experimentation.
    “While the group’s initiative does not directly request government money for cloning or embryonic stem-cell research, it does prohibit state and local governments from denying money to those who do this research and thus potentially could allow the biotech industry access to public funds. This amendment is really all about destroying human life using unethical research with the likelihood of being backed by public money,” observes Beverly Ehlen, Northeast Area Director for Concerned Women for America of Missouri.  “It should go against the grain of every Missouri taxpayer that a private entity could potentially receive public dollars to fund this morally disputable research,” Ehlen adds.

Revolutionizing Youth Minstry
By Greg Stier

  Revolution: “A sudden or momentous change in a situation; to overthrow the current system for something radical and fresh.”
   Youth ministry needs a revolution. It needs to be overthrown, retooled and reborn. The majority of what passes as youth ministry is organized babysitting: songs, games, a short devo and pizza afterward…yippee!
   
Mark Senter III wrote in The Coming Revolution in Youth Ministry that there is no way which the programs and youth ministry tactics currently being used will ever stem the moral tidal wave of corruption that has encompassed our teenagers. In his ground breaking book, Mr. Senter emphasizes again and again the urgent need for a fundamental transformation of the way that youth ministry is done in America. I agree with him. Do you?
   
If you disagree with the radical assertion that the overall approach to youth ministry is a failed experiment, stop and think about three stark realities. According to Dr. Gary Railsback up to 50 percent of evangelical college freshman will forsake their Christian beliefs by their senior year of college. According to George Barna: 2 out of 3 Christian teens will leave the church after they graduate from high school; 63 percent of our teens don’t believe Jesus is the Son of the one true God; 58 percent believe all faiths teach equally valid truths; 51 percent don’t believe Jesus rose from the dead and 70 percent don’t believe an absolute moral truth exits.
   
Not only are we failing to reach the non Christian teens in our culture, we are failing to reach the “Christian” teens in our youth groups. We all have bad, sad stories of teens who have forsaken their Christian roots for the tempting fruit of this world. We are not alone. Jesus had Judas. Paul had Demas. Who do you have?
