PRAYER MEETING

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 | Uncategorized

For those of you who worship Molech:

A local Planned Parenthood abortion business in California is copycatting the 40 Days for Life campaign, which recently resulted in saving the lives of more than 700 unborn children from abortion. The abortion business has set up its own 40 Days of Prayer for the local abortion center.

“We trust you to decide about your sexuality, having your children, and planning your family,” says a flier promoting the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event. “We are religious leaders who value all human life.  We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.”

We believe that human life is holy. That’s why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not,” the pro-abortion religious leaders continue. “It can be helpful to talk with friends you trust, with licensed counselors, and with whatever religious person you choose.  Humboldt County Clergy are available to talk with you about the spiritual aspects of choice.  Find out more by calling Six Rivers Planned Parenthood.”

UPDATE: In news that should surprise absolutely no one at all, Episcopal Organization functionary Susan Russell is perfectly fine with baby killers.  Thanks to Tragic Christian.

I suspect that most United Methodists in the South and Midwest would be genuinely shocked to learn that out in California many of their ministers are actively involved in this evil work.

No surprise here. Humboldt County is home to the town of Arcata and Humboldt State University, a typical leftist green save-the-fish-and-the-redwoods California academic community.

Prayer and spirituality are meaningless to these people, except as a means to an end. I’m amazed as ever and the cynicism and manipulative dishonesty of the left.

But I still must wonder, was the prayer for day 38 intended seriously, or as black humor:

Day 38: “Today we pray for a cloud of gentleness to surround every abortion facility. May everyone feel calm and loving.”

This so very wicked. I pray that everyone involved in this turn to Jesus and ask Him to forgive and change their lives.

Russell is deceitful in this letter. Who is trying to restrict women’s access to birth control?

The albino monks hiding under your bed, apparently. Always amazed that the same people who demand privacy in the bedroom don’t extend that courtesy to other people’s wallets.

Who, exactly, are they expecting will answer these “prayers”? God? Ha! I don’t meant to speak for God, but I don’ think so…

Why would that be Adios? The both the General Board of Church & Society and the General Board of Global Ministries, Women’s Division represent the UMC as members of the Religious Coalition of Reproductive Choice. Seems to me that the Methodists are in waist deep!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot:

We both know that; but my point is that most Methodists-in-the-pews don’t. There hasn’t been a seismic event like the election of Gene Robinson to cause them to pay closer attention what their denominational officials are actually up to.

In the end Gene Robinson has been a good thing. His bishopric has woken people up to the machinations of their “leaders”. How paradoxical?

How about believing in the right of the child to be a child? Oh, wait! That’s the problem, isn’t it? The child might be cramping someone’s lifestyle if it is allowed to live.

“We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.” Help with what exactly?

But the science if embriology and all empirical evidence disagrees.So their claim is equivalent to saying many people still disagree that man has been to the moon and back!!!

BTW God will not listen to these prayers because he does not cooperate with evil as otherwise he will contradict himself.On the other hand what these p[eople are claiming are what George Orwell refered to in his novel “1984″ as “doublethink” or in common parlance “doublespeak”. Intellectual dishonesty, particularly that that presents evil as a good, is the unforgiveable sin against the Holy Spirit.

Still “the the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event proudly proclaim that “We are religious leaders who value all human life.” but they support abortion while carefully denying it is the killing not fo a ptential human being but a of a complete human life in progress.

“We accept that religions differ about when life begins.”

If that’s the case, then you think they would take the most “safe” or conservative approach and assume that life begins at fertilization. Their actual approach would be like saying that if you’re out hunting in the woods and see “something” that might be either a deer or one of your fellow hunters, it’s OK to shoot at it.

Still “the the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event proudly proclaim that “We are religious leaders who value all human life.”

Their true spiritual father said it more eloquently:

“And to have seen this through, and — with the exception of human weaknesses — to have remained decent, has made us hard and is a page of glory never mentioned and never to be mentioned.”

Reminds me of what the Nazis called the company that hauled the sick and disabled to killing centers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemeinnützige_Krankentransport_GmbH
Killers of the poor and weak always have their euphemisms.

Those clergy who shill for PP’s killing centers have a special place in Hell awaiting them, probably right next to those Nazis.

Russell is deceitful in this letter. Who is trying to restrict women’s access to birth control?

Wouldn’t it be funny if the criminal element picks up on this strategy? A policeman would try to stop a mugger and would receive the reply: “You’re trying to restrict my right to free cable and beer, which I obtain by mugging”
“But what about this person’s right to private property?”
“That is a negative right, but in this positive age, under this enlightened administration, my positive rights trump her negative rights.”

I’m sure John would agree. I hope someday someone with kidney failure asserts his positive right to one of John’s kidneys. Then he might actually get a clue.

“We believe that human life is holy. That’s why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not”.

Or, to put it a bit more correctly and less couched in mediaspeak, “We believe that YOUR life is holy, and that you should be allowed to make any and all decisions you wish regarding your sexual activity. Should such decisions result in a pregnancy, the resulting baby is NOT holy until some time (varying depending on culture and the current trends) after it has been born, and it has no right to exist since it is not holy. It is wrong to imply that the unborn have any rights or status before God; they are merely “things” to be dealt with howsoever a woman sees fit. Because, after all, her life is holy – never mind the fact that she wouldn’t even be alive if her mother, in her “holiness”, had made the same decisions she is making.”

And Russell makes a tremendous straw-man argument in claiming that access to birth control is being attacked. She may as well say that the insidious forces of the right-wing fundamentalists have placed guards on the “family planning” section of every pharmacy, with instructions to physically assault anyone who tries to buy a package of Trojans. Her attempt to smear the pro-life movement by associating it with phantom anti-birth-control efforts is disingenuous at best.

First of all life preexists conception. A living sperm and living egg combine to create a new living embryo. So life is there from the start. The real question is when do we recognize that life a human so that it is protected by law. And that,friends, is not a question that science, as the naturalist materialists like to argue, can answer.

The question is a moral and legal one with morality driving the legal definition. The only true bright line test is that of conception, when sperm and egg unite. Anything else is subjective speculation.

Nothing we say or do will change the minds of these closed minded liberals. All we can do is educate our young and pray that they are allowed to live in a world that still practices a little bit of religious freedom.

Meanwhile there are (insert nasty words here) idiots out there who control the media. They are doing what THEY think is best for everyone. Anyone who disagrees is labeled a bigot, racist, hater, (add nasty comment here).

It is 5 PM somewhere… I’m having a beer.

Little Myrmidon, that video reminds me of when my sister phoned to tell us she was expecting her first child (and our parents’ first grandchild):

My mother: “(Name of elderly relative) said she was praying to St. Anne for a surprise for you!”

My sister: “Well, tell her it worked!”

Can someone please tell me why Susan Russell cares so much about birth control and abortion? Didn’t she swear off the need for both years ago?

First Moloch, horrid King besmear’d with blood

Of human sacrifice, and parents tears,

Though, for the noyse of Drums and Timbrels loud,

Their children’s cries unheard that passed through fire

To his grim Idol.

“My life is holy. Sucks to be you.” That’s the Episcopal motto. But, here’s my belief: Under what circumstances would bringing a child into the world be anything less than a blessing? True, kids can be a bit of a pain: Dirty diapers, terrible twos, vomit on the new carpet, teenage insanity, etc. But, can you name a better vocation? I mean, other than advocating the death of defenseless babies? A little perspective, here, people. Babies = good. Dead babies = not good.

If recreational sex is okay for others, she is off the hook for hers. I think that her conscience must bother her terribly.

That’s easy: when you are laboring under a poisonous narrative that sees humans merely as conusmers and polluters and ignores that they are also innovators, conservers and producers. All Progressivist compassion is false compassion and it doesn’t take long for their misanthropic fangs to come out.
