The “Pro-Life” Democrats’ Lenten Trifecta
I don’t know what the exact percentage is, but I imagine that the vast majority of the so-called, pro-life Democrats who voted in legion with Nancy Pelosi to pass nationalized health care consider themselves to be Christian . . . that and a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee these days, but not much else.
Many “Christians”, when it comes to their Christianity, amount to nothing more than a puddle of lukewarm spittle who view their religion as merely a “faith tradition”. You know the kind; they’re nominally Christian at best, but think it’s kinda homey to go through the motions on Sunday, because after all, tradition is nice and hell, it resonates with the voters. But, like lots of other personal traditions, they believe that Christianity should stay boxed up during the regular workaday week . . . lest it offend someone of a different tradition.
It should be no surprise then that whenever they face pressure and temptation, they fold like a house of cards subjected to no more than a swift breeze. They have no divinely supported foundation to stand upon and therefore no real depth in their virtue; a “faith tradition” is no more than a weak emanation from a penumbra, to borrow an infamous phrase. Without the real armor of God, they are mere putty in the hands of their fallen nature, the world, and the demonic.
How fitting it is then that their transgression against the unborn occurred during the season of lent.
When Christ secluded himself in the desert, the fallen angel, Satan, brazenly tempted Christ, even offering Him all the kingdoms of the world, if only He should bow to Satan in worship. The so-called, pro-life Democrats were also just offered the world, if only they would turn a blind eye to the appetite of the abortion industry. And, the only consolation to the mirage that is their principles? An executive order with about as much bite as a toothless octogenarian.
To add insult to injury regarding the abomination that Obamacare is to life, the so-called, pro-life Democrats committed their betrayal right on the Lord’s Day, a Sunday. Add to this Nancy Pelosi’s prayer for the intercession of St. Joseph regarding the passage of Obamacare, and you’ve got the perfect trifecta of sacrilege. Yes, indeed, the Democrats really are the party of death, both physical and eternal.
I would like to leave the so-called, pro-life Democrats with a few messages from their “faith tradition.” Perhaps it will fall on deaf ears, but still, maybe there’s some small ember of faith left in them that may yet be kindled by a warning that should not be so easily shirked.
Obamacare will open the floodgates of abortion with federal funding and unfettered access (say “so long” to any and all restrictions). In facilitating the passage of Obamacare, you, the so-called pro-life Democrat, ignore the very warnings of Christ regarding the invaluable life of a child:
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, (Matthew 18: 1-2)
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! (Matthew 18: 6-7)
So-called, pro-life Democrats, you have greased the wheels of abortion and have offended vast numbers of future children by preventing them from even having the opportunity to serve their Lord in this life. You may have temporarily gained the world and the accolades of Pelosi and Obama, but these things are fleeting. You have summarily ignored a dire warning from the one true God. If you’ve still got a shred of your Christian faith within you, then fear of God should be your dominant thought, accompanied by a headlong rush to repent, for you are “that man by whom the offence cometh.”
