Was a time, back in the 90s, when even my liberal Protestant colleagues shied from the late term abortion policies of the Clinton Administration. Now look at where Catholics warming up to the Alt-Left are ending up. Either advocating, or at least turning a blind eye to, something that the most liberal of believers decades ago would reject.
Today, in service to the Left, it turns out even late term abortions have their place at the table of discussion. You've heard the dig about Conservatives blaspheming the name of God among the Gentiles? Well, here's another passage that the New Prolife Movement might want to remember:
And thou shalt say: Hear the word of the Lord, O ye kings of Juda, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold I will bring an affliction upon this place: so that whoever shall hear it, his ears shall tingle: Because they have forsaken me, and have profaned this place: and have sacrificed therein to strange gods, whom neither they nor their fathers knew, nor the kings of Juda: and they have filled this place with the blood of innocents. And they have built the high places of Baalim, to burn their children with fire for a holocaust to Baalim: which I did not command, nor speak of, neither did it once come into my mind. Therefore behold the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Topheth, nor the valley of the son of Ennom, but the valley of slaughter.
There appears to be no exception where hating conservatives taketh away the sin of the slaughter of the innocent. It looks like it's frowned upon in heavenly places, and those who let it slide for political expedience? Perhaps not focusing on the sins of our ancestors on a daily basis might help us notice the sins of our present darkness a little easier.
The latest scourge of the Church is the left wing "Catholic" who wants to be liked and accepted by the world. One can see it in the US Congress daily and it permeates society in Canada, Western Europe etc. I wonder if these people realize that acceptance in this world is not the goal we wish to ultimately achieve.ReplyDelete
