54,741 actual murders in Texas

Published

on

In 2020 there were 54,741 known abortions in Texas. That many people never got to live. Entire wars have been fought with dramatically fewer casualties. This is a murder spree of epic proportion, but the press says nothing about it. Nobody seems outraged. Instead people are outraged at the limitations placed on abortions.

May 19, 2021 Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill making abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy illegal in Texas.

Watch the protests begin! We will see, over coming weeks, immense pressure to reverse this. There will be loud pronouncements of women’s demands to make their own choices over their own bodies. I agree they should and do have that choice. But this is not about their bodies, even though that’s where the fetus’ reside. The child is not “their body”, it is “in their body” and dependent upon their body, but it is no longer simply a body part of the mother. It is not just a growth of tissue, it is a person capable of its own separate life once it is conceived. Those who challenge this and say it’s only a person later in the pregnancy are denying reality. Left alone, it will become a person.

A Woman’s Right to Choose! 

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: America No More…

Proponents of abortion demand that women be given the right to choose. This is a lie of distortion.

All women have the right to choose… life. They’ve always had the right to choose to let their baby live.

What they insist upon is the right to kill. They want to right to take their baby’s life if they deem it to be undesirable or inconvenient for them to be pregnant. Seriously think about that. They only insist on the right to kill the baby, They already have the right to choose life.

They say this is about women’s health. No it is not. In cases where the doctor and the mother determine that the pregnancy is a health risk to the mother that is a whole different discussion, not the one that was made in over 54,000 instances in the state of Texas alone in 2020. Very very few of these pregnancies came from rape or threatened the woman’s life. These were abortions made for emotional, financial or interpersonal reasons.

54,741 people were created by God, facilitated by a father and mother, and then terminated. Killed, no matter how you measure it.

We say that we are dedicated to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. We also proclaim “In God We Trust” and that we are “One Nation, under God, Indivisible…”  But that’s not what you hear in the press today. What you hear now is that our founding premise is out of date and was crafted by hypocrites who owned slaves, committed sins, or believed in the wrong concepts. By the way, in 1776 slavery was common worldwide. There were more countries with slavery than there were without it by a vast margin. The “colonies” were the only place where this was becoming exceptional. It was normal to have slaves. Blacks and whites and Muslims* and Asians all owned slaves. The way you treated your slaves showed the difference in people. (*My own personal ancestors were enslaved by Muslims on the Barbary Coast.)

When you don’t believe there is a benevolent Creator, a God who is the source of all life, then you also won’t believe that sins are forgivable. So, in looking back 200 years at our founders, you’ll be able to see “sins” just like you see everywhere today. The difference is, if you’re on the Left politically, you don’t forgive those earlier sins. You just condemn and “cancel” the people and any work they did no matter how good it may have been.

If you cannot defeat a concept, then you disgrace the people who support it and the concept becomes collateral damage. Disgrace our founders and you weaken the Constitution. Weaken the Constitution and you weaken all the laws based upon it. Do that and you can take down the entire country and convert it to Socialism or Communism.

What about the Prevent* Parenthood movement?

What’s their goal? Looking out for the well being of women? Hardly. They are, whether they realize it or not, Satan’s foot soldiers in the battle to destroy life. That’s a pretty outrageous accusation and I know that many supporters of Prevent* Parenthood are not proponents of death. (*intentional word choice based on the reality of their quest.)

After all, the name “Planned Parenthood” indicates that they are about intentionally scheduling when children will be added to a family. That’s not the reality. PP is about preventing the possibility that parenthood will happen unless someone exercises their right to choose life, in which case they don’t need the PP assistance. But proponents have been duped into thinking that they are protecting innocent women from the consequences of their sexual decisions. Nope, they are enabling the murder of innocent girls and boys.

This article won’t settle the debate over abortion rights but I hope it puts the stupid arguments to rest.

This isn’t about the “Right to Choose”, it is about the right to kill. Period.

[ ] On each trip to the supermarket, shop for at least two food items that are new to you or your family.

Three Cheers for Christian America

Thank you for safeguarding the public and private expressions of others

Published

on

Considering all the nations in the world and the dominating religions within those nations, Christianity is the most beneficial. When Christians are in the majority, it is good for everyone who resides there.

Christians during the Dark Ages, the Renaissance, and up to the mid-20th century contributed to much of the world’s turmoil. In recent decades, however, they have been the most accommodating, accepting, and peaceful group. I’m glad I live in a Christian nation and, given the options globally, would not have it any other way.

Best of the Best

Particularly in America, Christians today are tolerant, acknowledging the rights of others. They recognize the right of Israel to exist. They fully embrace Israel’s strategic role in the Middle East.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: America No More…

Too many people on the left who regard themselves as the arbiters of what is right and true, in minor and major ways have been persecuting Christians for decades. They do not want public displays of Christianity anywhere in America. Their agenda is to remove all vestiges of religion in America. They contend that America would be a better, more egalitarian nation.

Just the opposite is true. Those who want to stamp out religion in America don’t understand that our origins and 250-year history is based on Judeo-Christian principles. The cancel culture left seek to reject the U.S. Constitution out-of-hand.

We have encountered leftist groups who shatter statues and historic symbols they deem to be oppressive and part of an old regime that was illegitimate from the outset. Many of these perpetrators hide behind ski masks while regarding themselves as heroes. In reality, they are fascists, seeking to control us.

Leftist enforcers have no idea how intolerant they are and that they are no better than those they seek to diminish. In the U.S., people of all faiths are free to celebrate their faith. If one particular faith, Christianity, was predominant from inception, to today, that does not preclude other religious groups from celebrating.

Congress: Hands Off

Leftists make erroneous statements about the “separation of church and state.” The phrase simply is not contained in the Constitution or any founding document. It appeared in a letter that President Thomas Jefferson sent to a Baptist congregation in Danbury, Connecticut. His note to them was designed to reaffirm that the government would not make dictates related to the church.

The First Amendment to the Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” So, when it comes to religion, Congress must keep its hand off.

As a nonreligious person, I have nothing against seeing a religious display on public or private property. Indeed, America shorn of religious symbology would be a dismal place. The Ten Commandments on a public plaque? Fine. Christmas trees in the town square? Flip on the lights! A mosque being built in America? Why not?

As long as everyone is tolerant of other religions, such developments represent no threat to anyone. It is those who operate in secret who represent a threat, as are those who wish to vanquish the rights of others to publicly exhibit symbology.

The Option to Sing Along

When I attended grammar school, I was exposed to the annual Christmas pageant. I had the choice to skip the assembly. In each case, however, I chose to enjoy the merriment of the festivities, but not sing along. My young classmates did not require me to capitulate. Nor did I expect them to modify their festival to accommodate me. Would any aware American who moved to another country expect that country to diminish their celebrations to accommodate the newbie?

I’ve had the opportunity to visit 46 of the 50 states, and 73 countries. I have walked through hallowed halls of shrines, mosques, churches, and ashrams. While Christians are being persecuted in many countries around the world, I don’t know of a single instance today where people feel unsafe in a Christian majority country.

So, I say to you, if you are a Christian, in America, please know that large numbers of us support your right to practice your religion.

For All You Do

Thank you for safeguarding the public and private expressions of others. Thank you for helping to establish a climate where non-Christians and others can feel welcome. Thank you for becoming a peaceful, tolerant religion that rightfully serves as a model for others around the globe.
