2-20-2017 The Woe Of “Roe”

69-year-old Norma McCorvey died of heart failure at an assisted living center in Katy, Texas on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017. She was the “Jane Roe” of the “Roe v. Wade” case in which the United States Supreme Court, on January 22, 1973, ruled in Section IX B, “We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. When those trained in the respective disciplines of medicine, philosophy, and theology are unable to arrive at any consensus, the judiciary, at this point in the development of man’s knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”  The entire ruling depended upon the Judges’ confusion over, and ignorance of, when, exactly, life begins in pregnancy! Jesus noted that a birth mother forgets birth pains, “for joy that a human being has been born into the world” (John 16:21 NKJV). McCorvey died an anti-abortionist!

10-25-2016 Supporting Abortion

An unborn, or newly-born, baby defines “innocence,” for they have not “done any good or evil” (Romans 9:11 NKJV).  “The king of Egypt” issued an “executive order” to Israelite midwives that: “if it is a son, then you shall kill him; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.’ But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the male children alive” (Exodus 1:16-17 NKJV).  “Moreover Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides his sin by which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD” (2 Kings 21:16 NKJV).  God condemned Egypt and Judah, because He hates “Hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:17 NKJV).  God-fearing people will not vote for a leader determined to kill babies!

A sad situation that reveals an even sadder mindset

I don’t know if you’ve heard the news (as of right now, the video on YouTube already has over 5 1/2 million views), but a very sad, bad and unfortunate situation played out over the weekend when a very young child fell into a lowland gorilla exhibit at a Cincinnati zoo. The boy’s encounter with the gorilla ultimately resulted in the gorilla being shot and killed, and the boy having to go to the hospital for, what some media outlets were calling, “non-life-threatening” injuries. And as of this morning, according to the stories of outrage now being directed toward the zoo and the parents, it seems as if another result of the situation will be that the family of this young child will have to go into protective custody!

The following are “some” of the “profanity-free” comments that can be read on YouTube. Now I want to say that I have no doubt that some of these “comments” are only being made because of the brashness, “boldness”, “bravery” and desire for attention that oft describes many comments made on websites. But that fact withstanding, I believe that some of the comments come from their maker’s heart and that they reflect a growing warped mindset concerning the western culture’s view of human life versus animal life. Look at what I mean:

  • The employee who killed the gorilla should be fired and sent to prison.
  • They should have let the gorilla kill the kid. There are around 200 left of them on the entire planet and nearly 7 billion people. We’re a disgusting species that ruined our natural ecosystem. Now we keep animals in cages for our entertainment. Shame on all of us.
  • They should’ve shot the child instead of the gorilla
  • Hmm there’s only a handful of gorillas in the world left. There’s millions of little boys, this should speak for itself.
  • Gorillas are endangered kids are not I think we know who should’ve been shot.
  • I still can’t believe the gorilla had to die over protection of a 3yr old
  • They shot an innocent, beautiful Silverback because of a BAD mother, how disgusting
  • If someone forced me out of my natural habitat to entertain people and these entertained people managed to fall… i would have done worse than this gorilla.

On and on the comments go. Now we see the mindset that leads to millions of government tax dollars going to child-aborting-production-line companies such as “Planned Parenthood” while “adults” elsewhere chain themselves to trees and freely give millions of dollars to companies that fight for animal lives. Now we see the mindset that leads to more tears being shed over the thought of an animal losing its life than the rivers of human blood that flows down America’s sewers because of “liberty”. Now we see the mindset that leads to legal action being taken against people who reveal the flippant attitude that Murder Inc. bosses have toward the dead body of a human fetus while the people who release footage of animals being killed on food-farms are lauded as heroes. Now we see the mindset that causes a sad situation to become something that reveals an even sadder mindset.

Is there room for discussion about vigilant parenting when it comes to this situation? No doubt. But I believe that there is now more room for discussion about the mindset that calls for “vigilante” justice because the life of a child was protected by taking the life of an animal.

Look at the birds in the sky: They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are?” (Matthew 6:26 – NET)

12-9-2015 Baby Jesus #1

This time of year, many celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, but do not seem to understand some things. For instance, God’s Son was born to a woman who did not believe in abortion. Though not the “mother of God,” Mary was chosen to bring forth the body for God’s Son. “The angel Gabriel” said to her: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35 NKJV). Had she feared for her own life, reputation, or future at work, she could have been scared into an abortion, but instead, she feared God. No righteous person can consistently accept the birth of the precious Jesus and believe that abortion is alright.

3-26-2015 “Reasons” For Abortion

A pro-abortion advocate, gave as reasons to continue the practice that: the mother might have many trips to a Doctor, transportation costs, and extra child-care expenses, all of which are but inconveniences. In her mind, this justified slaughtering innocent babies, each of which would have been a further “inconvenience!” Sadly, many mothers have been robbed of their tenderest moments, for David said, “Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother; Like a weaned child is my soul within me” (Psalm 131:2 NKJV). At conception, (1) a chemical change on the surface of the egg takes place to prevent another sperm’s penetration; (2) the baby’s genetic makeup is entirely complete; making a totally different individual developing. At this point the baby is a foreign body within the mother, who has no more moral decision to make!

Last year MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry on…

Last year MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry on her July 21st show insisted that a baby’s life only begins when the parents say it begins. Quote: “When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling, but not science.” Unquote. What is this all about? For years we have fought abortion, the taking of an infant’s life before it is born. However now there is a rising cry for what is called “after-birth abortion”. It is claimed that parents should have the right to kill a new-born baby for whatever reason they choose. How can anyone argue such? It is simply the extended logic of a generation that has been raised to believe man is nothing more than evolving matter. This is Just-A-Minute.

Tennessee residents and “Yes on 1”

This is quite a ways out (although we’re talking months and not years) but I wanted to mention something for any of our Tennessee based readers in case you’re not familiar with the upcoming November 4th, 2014, election that will include an amendment identified at the top of the list with the number 1. Hence, there is an effort being made on behalf of this amendment to get people to “Vote YES on 1” due to the lack of awareness about it.

The short of the long is that the amendment will further strengthen the law against “optional” abortions highlighted by some stats such as, “Nearly 25% of abortions in Tennessee are sought by out-of-state women and girls.”

Apparently the state of Tennessee has fewer restrictions than our eight surrounding neighbor states and “YES on 1” is seeking to help close the convenient loop-holes through amendment #1 and end the practice of Tennessee being a “destination state” for those seeking an abortion with fewer guidelines.

If you would like to read for yourself a little more about the amendment’s goal along with an example of how the “ballot language” will read you can visit www.voteYEStn.org.
