During the 2012 Democratic National Convention, platform collaborators intentionally omitted any mention of God and words supporting Israel. Voices of outrage called for an amendment to add these references to the DNC’s stated tenets. The DNC Chair walked onto the stage, explained the amendment, and called for a vote. Loud boos echoed across the spacious vista, derisive jeers signaling God and Israel should be left out of the party plank. The Chair, obviously under pressure to the pass the amendment, called for a vote three times. Finally, he said,
And then he whirled and strode off the stage. More boos thundered around the auditorium.
Yes, the DNC booed God. I thought,
“It can’t get any worse than this.”
I was wrong.
After the Kermit Gosnell trial, the abortion debate raged with greater fury in various state legislatures. One particular state capturing much of the news was Texas. Lawmakers there presented legislation banning abortion at the 20 week mark of pregnancy. Enough research exists to prove babies in the womb suffer feelings of pain from this point on. Both sides of the argument lined up at the Capitol Building, each side waving signs to express their personal ideologies. Those to the Left claim Conservatives wage the real war on women, hindering them from healthcare services, while the Right insists the real war on women (and men) commences when a little girl (or boy) is ripped barbarically from the womb. The debate and shouts intensified as lawmakers ended the public arguments and called for a vote. While waiting on the tallied results, pro-life advocates stood on the Capitol steps singing “Amazing Grace.” Pro-abortion proponents screamed at the make shift choir, even chanting “Hail Satan” to drown out the song of praise.
Because we live in America, the right to honor Satan exists, but to pay tribute to the Prince of Darkness over the innocence of unborn life in the womb is sickening.
Just a few days ago, DNC Chair Woman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Fox’s “The Kelly File.” Megyn Kelly asked, ‘At what point does the fetus deserve protection or have constitutional rights?’ Schultz responded in this manner,
“We believe that decision is best left not to government but between a woman and her doctor. So, there isn’t — I can’t tell you a specific date and time past which we on all –in all cases are certain that that choice shouldn’t be made. Because that decision is very unique and individual to the woman, and should be in consultation with her conscience and her God and her doctor, that is a decision left to her.”
Obviously, Schultz is not referencing the God of the Bible but to “gods” dreamed up by fallen humanity to assuage their guilty consciences and to endorse their barbaric practices.
In reality, abortion mirrors in part, idol worship discussed in the Old Testament. Cultures outside of Israel sacrificed to a false god named Molech. In Leviticus 18:21, the Law instructs,
“Do not permit any of your children to be offered as a sacrifice to Molech, for you must not bring shame on the name of your God. I am the Lord.” (NLT)
Pagan cultures worshipped Molech, sacrificing their children to him. But since Molech only existed in their deceived and deluded imaginations, the god of this world received glory in these sacrificial rituals. In other words,
Today, abortion advocates scoff at the idea of Molech, considering the ancient worship rituals as savage and inhumane. Instead, pro-choice voters bow at the altar of organizations like Planned Parenthood, pouring money into the coffers of doctors willing to surgically removed an unplanned burden. In a spiritual sense, every knife’s slash chants
There’s good news. One day the chant “Hail Satan” will cease. In fact, one day Jesus will order,
“To Hell, Satan.”
Forevermore he’ll dwell in the Lake of Fire, free to champion death no more. What a glorious day!
Come quickly, Lord Jesus!
