The Stupid, Illogical and Deadly Words of a Pro-Death, Err, Pro-Choice President

Yesterday was the 39th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in the case of Roe vs. Wade. President Obama celebrated this day while those who champion the cause of life viewed it with much sadness and hope for a different future in regards to the issue of the legalized killing of unborn babies.

Two statements from the President's remarks yesterday are particularly noteworthy. They are noteworthy in the sense of how stupid, illogical and deadly they are. The first is how the President chose to conclude his remarks on this anniversary. He states,

"And as we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill our dreams.”

First of all, last Monday when we as a nation celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day was a historic anniversary in the truest sense. That was the remembrance of a life that is rightly celebrated. However, the 39th Anniversary of a Supreme Court decision that has seen over 50 million unborn babies killed inside their mother's womb is not historic, Mr. President, it's tragic.

Let me interpret what our President meant in the quote above. The President desires that "our daughters have the rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill our (their) dreams." Well, whatever could the President mean by that? I mean I think as a nation we have come a long way in equality in the workplace with women having just as much opportunity to excel in whatever they choose to do.

Here is what President Obama really said in those remarks. "It's unfair that our sons can have sex and not have to worry about the consequences of an unplanned pregnancy. If they get a woman pregnant, they can just desert the baby and the mother and continue to pursue their dreams and aspirations. However that is not so with the woman. If she were forced to have this baby all of her hopes and dreams could be crushed by having to be a mom. I mean let's be real, no woman really aspires with all of her heart and soul to be just a mother. Therefore, in order that our daughters are not hampered with the responsibility of being a mother that would crush their greater aspirations, we must continue to condone their right to kill unborn babies in the womb so that they can have the same sexual freedom as our sons."

Stupidest words ever spoken by a President of the United States of America. Makes me long for the days of such cogent thoughts as, "That depends on what the definition of 'is' is."

But the other remark the President made in his speech is where he gets real illogical. I have heard him and other Pro-Death, err, Pro-Choice advocates make similar statements. Here they are,

"While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue, no matter what our views, we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption."

Why must we do that? If abortion is not morally wrong and thus an inferior choice to adoption, planned pregnancies, etc., why do we need "to stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, reduce the need for abortion...promote adoption?" If there is nothing morally wrong with abortions (if abortions are not in actuality the brutal killing of another defenseless human being) then there is no need to work for the alternatives. You see, the President's conscience tells him otherwise, along with any other Pro-Death, err, Pro-Choice advocate. The reason we must work towards these other alternatives is because deep down we know that the choice of abortion is not just inferior to the alternatives of adoption and planned pregnancies, it's nothing less than the continuation of the Holocaust of our generation--the court approved poisoning and dismembering of babies in their mother's womb.

Stupid, Illogical, and Deadly, Mr. President.

How a Trip to the Mall Reveals Our Poverty of Spirit

I've been reading Paul Miller's A Praying Life: Connecting With God In a Distracting World. He writes of our need of a praying spirit throughout each day and how that effects the ordinary things such as walking through a mall. One of the highlights of walking through the mall is seeing all of the "interesting" people. But often times our reaction to what we see reveals our poverty of spirit because rather than seeing them as "interesting" we need to see them as needy, in need of the same thing we are in need of, the Gospel and the grace of God.

A praying spirit transforms how we look at people. As we walk through the mall, our hearts can tempt us to judge, despise, or lust. We see overweight people, skinny people, teenagers with piercings or tatoos, well-dressed women, security guards, and older people shuffling along. If we are tempted to judge an overweight person, we might pray that he or she loses weight. When we see a teenage girl with a nose ring, we can pray that she would find her community in Christ. When we see a security guard, we might pray for his career. When we pass an older couple shuffling along, we can pray for grace as they age.

So the next time we go to the mall, maybe as we watch the people we will really see them and pray for them as we realize that we really aren't that different from them--dependent creatures who need the help and grace of our Creator, grace that is given to us through Jesus Christ.
