Hell No, We Won’t Repent

by baldilocks

My friend, Dave Perkins, gets to the heart of the matter when it comes to the attitudes of women who have had an abortion.

I’ve known several women who have told me they’ve had abortions. There are two life responses I’ve observed.

One is an abiding sense of guilt and shame […] at least until they found God and Christ and forgiveness (that is the context in which I have had these discussions with them). Somewhere in their souls they know they are objectively guilty in this, and only God can forgive such acts. So, they seek Him and find Him and find forgiveness.

The other is a FURIOUS ANGER at anyone they believe might possibly be entertaining a tiny bit of anything like judgmentalism against them for having done that. (…)

They don’t seek forgiveness; they want JUSTIFICATION and will punch in the face anyone who won’t acknowledge their act was not unjust.

(…) Not wanting to face something so horrible about yourself is a very strong motive for activism and high loud moral outrage, folks. Don’t undervalue that.

This second kind of person pops up all over the Kavanaugh travesty.

It’s difficult to face the fact that you have murdered, and that the victim is the one person over whom you have total control. If you refuse to face it, that person loses sentience in you mind and becomes just a clump of cells, like your fingernails or your hair.

But there’s more to this phenomenon than the non-personing of unborn babies. The refusal to see the reality of one’s iniquities leads to blindness of the spiritual variety. This blindness seems to turn what is obviously murder into an issue of power.

For the women who justify abortion, the notion that her body is not her own is infuriating. “My body, my choice” is more than just a statement of personal sovereignty; it’s a statement which refutes God’s ownership of each individual.

It’s not a coincidence that many abortion activists are atheists, or they subscribe to a caricature of “God” – a god who let’s them do whatever they want. I think that latter god is real. Some call him Lucifer.

And whoever may act to not allow them to do whatever they want – or even those whose speak out against what they want – is deemed as evil. So it is that, any tactic used against this enemy is fair game.

The repeated attacks on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh sit atop this twisted spiritual foundation, a foundation made of death to the innocent. Christine Blasey-Ford even admitted this.

Thus is the fruit of the refusal to repent.

One more thing. Here’s how I know that this spirit is from the Adversary — besides the fact that it involves murder. The activists want every level of society to be complicit in the abortion industry, starting at the level of the money in your pocket.

The next time you are too embarrassed to go to confession because you are confessing the same sins over and over ask yourself why you think that Jesus who told Peter he must forgive his brother 70 x 7 times isn’t going to use that same standard with you?

 

No charge but tips happily accepted

Via Kurt Schlichter I saw this thread concerning responding to this Washington Post story about these anti Trump republicans efforts to find a primary challenger to Donald Trump. My answer to the thread is that not only does it not surprise me in the least but I’d be shocked if they gave it up.

At first I was going to compare them to Dick’s sporting goods dumping guns, after all if you have a different customer base there is no point it trying to cater to the old one but on sober reflection this is more analogous  to this question as to why dissident Catholic groups and theologians remain in the church. 

Someone once asked a famous dissenting theologian why she remained in the Church if she found so much of its doctrine and practice so detestable.

She answered, “It’s where the Xerox machine is.” In other words, she remains b/c the Church butters her bread and pays her rent. The Church provides her with the resources she needs to undermine the Church.

as I put it in another post about a dissident group of protestants:

If they join other denominations they’re just another face in the crowd and are no longer significant, if they form independent churches they become a small congregation that won’t last a generation but as long as they remain dissenters within the the UMC then they are assured of getting attention, fawning press and financial support from outside organizations opposed to this vote and anxious to redefine sin for their own purposes.

As long as they are still nominally republican they remain newsworthy, once they decide to leave the party then they aren’t worthy of coverage or financial support from the left.

…that within three years of Donald Trump’s election we would see this:

The Planned Parenthood abortion business announced today it will officially withdraw from the Title X program — costing it $60 million in taxpayer funds because it refuses to follow a new Trump administration rule that requires it to segment out its abortion business from legitimate health care if it wants federal funding under the program.

Because the abortion giant is withdrawing from Title X, the $60 million in taxpayer dollars i received annually can be redistributed to groups that engage in legitimate women’s health care.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday rejected a request from more than 20 states, Planned Parenthood and the American Medical Association to block new pro-life rules that Planned Parenthood is refusing to follow. Leading pro-life groups have praised the Trump administration for prioritizing women’s health ahead of abortion.

…they would have called you at best delusional and at worst insane.

Let’s also remember that before this Planned Parenthood funding was saved by a Republican Senate that had the chance to defund them but refused to do so, leaving it up to President Trump to do the heavy lifting.
