Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.
Moloch was a false god that Israel would worship during its periods of apostasy. Followers that worshipped this counterfeit deity would sacrifice their children to it by heating up this idol with fire until it was glowing hot and then place their newborn babies into the arms of the idol.
What better way to honor the modern day version of misguided leaders that sacrifice our children and culture to political correctness and false beliefs than with awards named for the phony philosophy of Moloch.

Millstone Award Winner - Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood
Did you do your part in 2011 to help debase America's next generation? No worry; the recipient of this year's Millstone Award was pretty much a lock! Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood in Albany, New York, hired teens for $75 biweekly to "peer-educate" other teens on the benefits of unfettered sex and abortion. As part of the interview process for its STARS (Seriously Talking about Responsible Sex) program, applicants were required to attend a homosexual parade. And he icing on the cake? The program was paid for with taxpayer dollars!
Granted only to high-profile politicians who outrival all others at checking their Catholic faith at the door. The competition for 2011 was stiff, but former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi still has the edge, due to her unmatched capacity to proclaim her staunch devotion to Catholicism, contraception, abortion, and homosexuality simultaneously. We hope this DVD of A Man for all Seasons will teach Ms. Pelosi how to get More into her faith.
Syllabus of Errors Award Winner - National Catholic Reporter
Condemned by the local bishop for its "poisonous character" and "disregard and denial of the most sacred values of our Catholic faith," the National Catholic Reporter has reached new journalistic heights when it comes to insisting that it has a Catholic identity even while it works assiduously to undermine established Catholic teaching. We're confident the Reporter will find this trove of heresies an indispensable resource for being wrong about the faith and distorting Church teachings well into the future.
Detective Monkey Award Winner - John Carr, Catholic Campaign for Human Development
And the winner is ... John Carr, whose office at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops oversees the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. No, the CCHD didn't find monkeys, but it was able to meticulously combine the investigative skills of Inspector Clouseau and the observational acumen of Mizaru, the See No Evil monkey. Voila! Despite its reformed screening process, the CCHD continued funneling millions of dollars to groups that directly or indirectly support Marxism, abortion, homosexual marriage, and other activities that are anathema to faithful Catholics.
For advancements in the art of lying with statistics, Planned Parenthood Federation of America wins this award, hands down. PPFA distinguished itself by boldly claiming that committing abortions comprises only 3% of its business, although 1/3 of its "clinic" revenues are generated by making sure only 2-3 of 100 pregnant patients ever leave a PP clinic with their preborn baby still alive. And just for extra credit, PPFA also assured poor women they can rely on PP facilities for mammograms that, in fact, PP doesn't provide.
This award goes to MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow, for her rant against ALL's "The Pill Kills" seminar. We're not sure if she's just a pill or just ignorant of the harmful side effects of the pill. In any case, we hope her Hemlock Yuk Award (which includes Mr. Yuk stickers) will teach her that THESE PILLS ARE BAD-DO NOT EAT THEM.
This award is shared by Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services, and her best fiend for life, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. Whether imposing federal power on states that have defunded PP, shredding evidence needed for a criminal investigation, or handing out the morning-after pill as if it were candy, rumor has it that BFFs Sebelius and Richards are so in bed together they need only one twin sheet for abortion- themed sleepovers. Like love lockets, the award's two matching part remind each recipient of how much they mean to each other in promoting abortion fun-whether those dumb ole taxpayers like it or not!
Education Minister Laurel Broten says the Catholic schools must allow clubs focused on homosexuality. "That is the end of it. ... We are watching closely what is happening in communities across the province," she told Xtra.
