Why Have the CMP Planned Parenthood Videos Had So Little Effect?

Why has Planned Parenthood not lost any noticeable support since the damning videos have been released?  Why are the same people defending them with the same degree of support they always have?  The answer doesn’t have to do very much with babies; it has primarily to do with the culture of promiscuity.

Planned Parenthood (PP) is the ubiquitous safety net for the unintended consequences of promiscuity.  Promiscuous women want a strong PP because they cannot count on the men they seek to do the honorable thing.  Promiscuous men want a strong PP because they are not honorable and PP is there to “clean up” any messes they make – and to coax the woman to abort the baby if she is at all reluctant.

Therefore, the reason Planned Parenthood can literally get away with murder is not because of America’s lack of concern about child safety but rather because of America’s overabundant concern for adult pleasure.

In other words, it’s not about the children.  It’s about adults and their childish ways.

That’s the reason so many Americans stick their heads in the sand on this issue.  They know intuitively that a diminution of PP could sooner or later reduce their opportunities for promiscuity – and they want no part of such limitation.  They want to partake of marital intimacies at will, and without the constraints of marital responsibilities.

This is also why you can’t get a reasonable discussion of the issue, because no adult wants to admit that he or she thinks this way.  So they keep making up reasons (“heavily-edited” videos, “extreme right-wing” organization, “illicit undercover” operation) for their opposition to the videos – anything to keep the truth of their selfishness and perversity from coming to light.  They don’t even want to admit it to themselves, much less anyone else.  Yet in their quiet moments, they know the truth.  And so they avoid quiet moments.

The truth is glaringly obvious: Planned Parenthood is the enabler and beneficiary of American lust.  God help us!

Ronald Reagan Calls the Bible Foundational to the Rights of American Citizens

Of the many influences that have shaped the United States of America into a distinctive Nation and people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring than the Bible.  Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible…laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades.  The Bible and its teachings helped form the basis for the Founding Fathers’ abiding belief in the inalienable rights of the individual, rights which they found implicit in the Bible’s teachings of the inherent worth and dignity of each individual.

Democrat Harry Truman Thought the Bible Should Be Emphasized More

The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus  and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul.  I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.
– Harry S. Truman (1884-1972), 33rd president of the United States

I wish Democrats today sounded like this.

Why is the pope talking about climate change instead of marriage?

…Pope Francis insisted at the White House that the present moment is “critical” for addressing the threat of climate change…

The head of the largest organization of Christians in the world comes to a country that has just enshrined into law a practice which said organization has always condemned as a sin against God (i.e. same-sex “marriage”) and this Christian leader, rather than address this issue, chooses instead to discuss a matter on which he has no expertise?

Does Christianity teach that our outward environment is more important than our internal environment?  Did Jesus teach that the temperature of Jerusalem was more important than the hearts of its citizens?

The “vicar of Christ” has become the “vicar of scientists.”  The pope has chosen to exalt the word of men over the word of God.  How can Francis claim to be God’s representative when he won’t represent God on an issue that God and the very organization which Francis heads have declared is crucial to the well-being of humanity (i.e. moral marriage).

When Ireland was holding a referendum on same-sex “marriage” earlier this year, why didn’t Pope Francis fly to that Catholic country, barnstorming city after city for the sake of righteousness?  Given his personal popularity, surely he might have turned the tide.  As far as I can tell, he didn’t even send them a letter on the subject.  And yet he comes to the United States to talk about issues important to a national leader who has bathed his home in colors stolen from the story of Noah and applied to enemies of the ideas for which Noah stood!

It’s one thing when the secular institutions of a society abandon morality, but when its moral institutions abandon moral causes what hope can that society have to escape the judgments of God?  Who is there to call us to repentance if those who have the word of God do not do so?

We live in a time of vast corruption.  Hold fast to your faith in Jesus.  Do not give in to the spirit of the age.  He will give you plenty of light to live one day at a time in the midst of this moral darkness which has enveloped our world.  Remember the heroes of the Bible and imitate their faithfulness.

Is my point in this post to make the pope and the president look bad?  No, it is to say that many of the lamp posts have burnt out but if you’ll use your flashlight you will do just fine.

Big Business in America Chooses Sides in the Muppets Battle

I call attention to this article not because of what it says about the new Muppets show, but because of what it says about the way big business culture thinks these days.

You can tell from the title of the article alone and the quote marks around the word “perverted” that neither the writer nor the editor appear to think like the million moms…or are married to someone who thinks like the million moms.  It’s clear that Fortune magazine is comfortable taking this stance, feeling no need to present a more middle-of-the-road view.

Gone are the 1980’s when Jerry Falwell would mobilize “the Moral Majority” or Don Wildmon’s American Family Association would command the respect of big business in America.  Today “a million moms” just get lumped in the Westboro Baptist Church as hateful bigots on their way to extinction.

The coarsening of the culture continues at an ever-increasing pace.

Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the Importance of the Bible to America

In the formative days of the Republic the directing influence of the Bible exercised upon the fathers of the Nation is conspicuously evident…We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a Nation, without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic.
–  Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945), 32nd president of the United States
