Abortion

How shall we then vote?

If ignorance is indeed bliss, then those Americans unaware of this year’s presidential primary are of all people most blessed! One major Democratic candidate could (and probably should) be facing a federal indictment over how top-secret state communications were handled. The other top Democratic candidate is a self-described socialist. Not long ago, he would have been relegated to an asterisk as an…

President Obama: affirming the indefensible

It is distressing to be led by ungodly leaders, especially when they consistently pronounce as good that which is evil. President Obama continues to do so, as illustrated in his recent affirmation of a woman’s right to choose to end the life of her unborn baby: As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme…

Abortion: a choice which should be outlawed

A thoughtful post entitled “The Role of Law: It is reasonable and necessary for society to outlaw certain ‘choices’” on abort73.com takes issue with the commonly accepted mantra that abortion is simply a matter of a woman’s choice. The fundamental role of every government is to provide security for its citizens and to maintain public order. This cannot be done without legislating…

Right according to whom, Representative Sellers?

According to the Associate Press, “South Carolina legislators Wednesday [3-17-10] rejected plans to ban abortions in the state’s health insurance plan in cases of rape or incest or when they’re needed to protect a mother’s health.” The debate was heated and the vote was close: 57-54. My understanding is that the provisions of rape and incest were later included in the ban,…

Compromising evangelicals

It seems that evangelicals are falling all over themselves to become accepted by mainstream American society. Discussions about creation in the first two chapters of the book of Genesis are deemed “distractions.” The plight of the unborn is considered “yesterday’s battle.” It is considered fashionable to support a United States President who pontificates about the need to defend the weak but turns…

President-elect Obama

The United States has elected a man not of my choice. Nevertheless, Barack Obama will become President on January 20, 2009. A couple of Scripture passages come to mind: 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (ESV) First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may…

Abortion: the child sacrifice of sophisticates

“Civilized” societies of the twenty-first century look with disdain upon those cultures which have been guilty of child sacrifice. In times of trouble, children would be sacrificed to some deity of popular imagination in order to placate the wrath of that god. At other times, children would be sacrificed in order to secure blessing, perhaps needed rain for a good crop. Consider…

Cool evangelicals and Obama

That Barack Obama supports a woman’s “right” to an abortion is a given. The fact that many evangelical Christians are supporting Obama for President is not surprising. Many evangelicals, particularly young pastors, love being “cool,” and it’s “cool” to support Obama. The one thing I cannot reconcile is supporting a candidate for the highest political office (or any office, for that matter)…
