duggar-family-1-600x450I was reading an article today on CBSNews.com about the Duggar family.  The oldest Duggar son, Josh, and his wife Anna, are having their 3rd child, and made the comment that they, like Josh’s parents, will welcome as many children as God gives them.   The article was a positive one, but the comments on the article were absolutely jaw-dropping.  I was appalled at the hate coming from the readers regarding that one statement.

Here are just a few examples (others aren’t even fit to print):

“The baby will likely miscarry. It’s only going to get worse, and can’t they adopt and spare the mother needless risks for herself and the (hopefully makes it out alive and with no birth defects-addled) baby?:

“how much are we subsidizing this? more kids=more tax breaks=more money shoveled from those without children to people like this who won’t keep their hands out of my pockets. why should we pay for their private decisions?”

“They find more value in impregnating her until babies miscarry and/or she dies than anything else.”

“When is the next litter coming?”

“Obscene family. The more babies a woman has, the greater the risk – especially – as she gets older – for her body, and for the baby developing.  That’s not beautiful, that’s selfish and sick.”

Why are people so hateful?  What did the Duggar’s ever do to anyone?  They’re having a child, and they’re selfish, sick and obscene?  I do not understand this mindset.   Children are a joy and a gift from God.  Since when is it selfish and sick to want more than one child?

stethoscope-on-moneyI don’t hear those on the left speaking out against women on the public dole having one child after another.  I don’t see outrage from the left on the fact that 40% of children in the U.S. are born to a single parent.  Josh and Anna are 2 loving parents, raising their children to be good, law abiding, hard-working, responsible, Christian adults, and they’re the ones who are sick?  But having 6 children with multiple  fathers who are absent, and being solely dependent on the government to take care of the children is a situation that deserves our sympathy and hard-earned tax dollars?

The fact is this hate, in large part, is directed at the fact that the Duggars are Christians.  If it were Beyonce and Jay-Z having their 3rd child, would you hear the same outrage?   Do you hear anyone blasting Kris Kardashian for having 6 children?  The Duggars were slammed because they talked about God giving them their children.   The left apparently doesn’t believe those blessings come from God.

The left always claims that the government should stay out of the bedroom.  Yet they want the government to force businesses to provide free birth-control.  They want the government to force taxpayers to fund abortion clinics.  They push sex education in school at younger and younger ages.  Am I missing something?  That sure sounds like government in the bedroom to me.  And now they have a problem with a wholesome, hard-working family having 3 children?  Are child limits going to be their next mission?

Remember when President Clinton said he wanted abortions to be safe, legal and rare?  Well, someone didn’t get the message.  The left not only condones abortion, they promote it.  Who promotes MURDER?  Of course, it’s endorsed under the cover of “reproductive rights”, but endorsed nonetheless.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is currently on trial for the murder of one adult patient and seven babies.  He not only murdered unborn babies, he murdered babies born as the result of a botched abortion….by snipping their spines with scissors!  Do you think those babies didn’t feel that pain??  And yet, not a word from the liberal media.  Those babies were slaughtered and nothing but silence from the left.  What is wrong with these people?

If they have so little regard for the murder of innocent babies, the most fragile among us, where do they draw the line?  Is it the elderly next?  The physically disabled?  The mentally disabled?   We already see medical reimbursement rates being cut, insurance premiums going up, and coverage lowered or dropped.  Doctors are leaving the practice, which will result in rationing of care.  Refusing to cover certain treatments for the elderly could be just around the corner, in order to save money.  Obama caused a controversy in 2010, when he answered a question at a town hall meeting, stating that an elderly woman (105), who received a pacemaker, possibly should have received a pill instead of surgery, based solely on her advanced age.  America, welcome to death panels.

Bottom line….if we as a nation, have lost all respect for life, our society is doomed.

As I noted in an earlier post, Marxists do not believe in the existence of God, or moral absolutes.  Thus, it stands to reason that they also do not believe in the sanctity of human life.

Marx was clear about this subject.  While the term “abortion” was not specifically discussed in Marx’s writings, he did call for abolition of the family.  He viewed children as private property to their parents.  He also viewed marriage as a woman becoming private property to the husband, and given the fact that private property, in his eyes, was the source of all ills in the world, he felt the family unit must be eliminated.

An article in Australia’s official Communist newspaper, written by pro-choice activist and feminist Rebecca Albury, included the following statements regarding the Marxist view of abortion:

  • A Marxist believes that personality and human value are imparted by the external and economic environment, not by any inherent spiritual value, or even by biological processes.
  • The fetus, according to a Marxist, becomes a person when he is judged as such by “someone of higher wisdom.” The humanity of the fetus depends upon how the mother perceives the “social relationship” that exists between them. If the mother desires to keep the baby, then she “fantasizes” it into becoming a human being. But, if she does not want the pregnancy, “it is something else entirely.” Her opinion of the fetus thereby denies it of personhood.
  • “Biological processes,” says Albury, “do not carry automatic moral values as the Right to Life suggests … Human economic, social, and political relationships create moral values.”
  • According to Albury, “Material conditions of life change, and so do moral values.” This means that, to a Marxist, the unborn baby may be a human being for a time, but may then become depersonified and rendered ‘pre-human,’ all because his or her mother began to think differently about him or her. She adds: “Certainly, many women experience mixed feelings; the fantasy baby may even appear for a while. Women can tell it goodbye forever.”

As we know, President Obama holds a very aggressive stance on abortion.  He is not simply a pro-choice advocate; he is a pro-abortion advocate.  When Obama was a state senator, he was the only senator who voted against a bill (BAIPA) that would ensure life-saving measures were taken to aid infants born alive after botched abortions, stating, among other reasons, that it would cause undue burden on the mother, and that these babies are not protected under the Equal Protection clause of the Constitution.  In addition, he felt that this was a ploy to overturn Roe vs Wade, and that letting these babies live or die is a) the doctor’s prerogative, b) a religious issue, and c) violates no universal principle.  How could anyone who believes life is special and sacred speak like this?  Exactly.  One wouldn’t.

As president, Obama has worked even harder to push a pro-abortion agenda:

  • Obama promised to pass the Freedom of Choice Act, which would eliminate federal, state and local restrictions on abortion.
  • Obama has consistently nominated or appointed staunch pro-choice officials and advisers, including Rahm Emanuel, Ellen Moran, Melody Barnes, Hillary Clinton and Kathleen Sebelius.
  • Obama and others in his administration claim that no federal funding of abortion is included in Obamacare.  Yet, just months after the bill was signed, the Obama administration approved $160 million in federal funds to Pennsylvania, $37 million to New Mexico and additional funds to Maryland, to fund abortions through high-risk insurance programs.
  • In 2009, Obama signed an executive order to reverse the Mexico City Policy, a ban which prohibited funding to international family planning groups that provide abortion.
  • Since 2009, Obama has been working to overturn pro-life conscience protections, which President Bush put in place in order to protect medical staff from being forced to perform abortions.  Obama flatly denies these claims, but the facts show otherwise.
  • Catholic bishops lost millions in federal funding for human trafficking victims, because they refused to refer women for contraceptives and abortions.
  • Obama reversed President Bush’s executive order banning embryonic stem-cell research, then signed a new executive order giving taxpayer funding for it.
  • Obama has, in at least two United Nations meetings, called for unlimited rights for abortion.
  • Obama’s science czar, John Holdren, is revealed to have written that he favors forced abortions and mass sterilization.
  • VP Joe Biden stated in a speech at a Chinese university that he understood China’s one-child policy, a policy which is enforced by forced abortion and sterilization.
  • The Obama administration refused to investigate videos showing Planned Parenthood helping alleged sex traffickers get abortions for victimized underage girls.
  • The Obama administration has been arranging abortions, using taxpayer dollars, for illegal immigrants.
  • A new article reveals that 138 of Obama’s campaign “bundlers” sit on boards of various foundations that push liberal social agendas, such as abortion, gay rights, union organizing, immigration and “racial justice”.

These are just a few examples of Obama’s efforts.  Frankly, the amount of information regarding his pro-abortion record is absolutely staggering.  You can find a comprehensive list at LifeNews.com.  This is not just a pro-choice advocate pushing a liberal agenda.  This is a full-frontal assault on Christianity and the family.

Another assault on the family, as well as religious liberty, is being waged by gay-rights groups, and President Obama and his administration are standing right by their side, pushing an aggressive agenda onto the American public, despite its strong opposition.

  • According to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute, President Obama has appointed more than 250 openly LGBT professionals to full-time and advisory positions in the executive branch, more than all known LGBT appointments of other presidential administrations combined.  The stated mission of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute is specifically to get LGBT members into political positions.
  • One in 16 of Obama’s “bundlers” are openly gay.  This includes only those who revealed their orientation.  Real numbers are estimated at to 1 in 6.  This gives gay rights groups a very strong lobby in the Obama White House.
  • This year, for the first time, the White House and the Pentagon observed LGBT Pride Month.
  • When President Obama took office, he stated he believed that marriage was between a man and a woman, and used his faith as a basis for his stance on the issue (although he was for it before he was against it).  Now that he has “evolved” and is endorsing same-sex marriage, he calls support of the traditional definition of marriage “divisive and discriminatory”.
  • In 2010, the Obama administration declared the Defense of Marriage Act un-Constitutional and instructed the  DOJ not to defend it in court.  Subsequently, they supported lesbian Edith Windsor in her suit against DOMA.
  • In 2010, Congress repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
  • In 2011, an HHS official announced that the Obama administration is actively recruiting LGBT couples to adopt children.
  • President Obama and Nancy Pelosi oppose a bill in the House that would protect military chaplains from being forced to perform gay marriages or other same-sex ceremonies, which are in violation of their religious beliefs.  Pelosi claims the gay marriage issue with military chaplains is “a fraud” and “a manufactured crisis”.
  • DHS changed the definition of “family” to include LGBT relationships.
  • The most disturbing move from President Obama was his 2009 appointment of openly gay activist Kevin Jennings as “safe school” czar.  Jennings is the founder, and also served as Executive Director, of GLSEN (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network).  GLSEN came out with a list of recommended reading for children of all ages, which included stories with x-rated and pornographic material, with explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers, affairs between students and teachers, and worse.  Jennings also encouraged a teen who was having affairs with older men, only warning him to practice safe sex, instead of reporting the incident.  In addition, Jennings advocates a homosexual curriculum in our schools.

Again, these are just a few examples, and frankly, only the tip of the iceberg.  This is more than just a case of a group of citizens seeking equal protection under the law.  It’s one thing to ask for equal rights, but when the rights of a group of citizens infringes on the rights of others, it is no longer equal.  This is a very powerful lobby, with a mission to indoctrinate our children and force their lifestyle down our throats, despite the moral and religious objections of a majority of Americans.  We’re headed down a very dark path in this country.  We need to wake up and restore America back to its founding principles, before we lose it altogether.

Very insightful article…

 

Black pundits say that to be black and Republican makes one a despicable race-traitor worthy of no-holds-barred punishment.  As a black conservative Republican, I’m not frightened by this; it just angers and frustrates me.

My frustration comes from the knowledge that those claiming to have black America’s empowerment and best interest at heart are the “elephant in the room” problem.  They lie to black America.  Who are “they”?  They are Democrats committed to keeping blacks viewing themselves as victims.  They are racist, bitter black politicians with huge chips on their shoulders, seeking eternal “payback” for America’s original sin of slavery.  These black politicians are rewarded by the Democrats for delivering black votes.

So there you have it, black America: these are your so-called advocates.  And how do they help you?  They lie to you.  They tell you that 70% of black youths dropping out of high school is not your fault.  They tell you that prisons filled with black males is not their fault.  They tell you that 80% of black kids growing up without a father is not your fault.  They tell you that black genocide — half of black pregnancies ending in abortion — is not your fault.

Rather than continue pumping tax dollars into the abortion industry, Ohio lawmakers are being asked to use that money to provide health services for the poor.

Ohio Right to Life, Texas Right to Life, and the Susan B. Anthony List are backing HB 298, a bill that would take tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood and similar facilities and give them to other organizations.

“It’s the public policy of the state of Ohio to prefer life over abortion,” accounts Ohio Right to Life President Michael Gonidakis. “It’s time we start taking these dollars and redirecting them to the areas that will help young women, help their children, and poor women as well.”

The money would simply provide services that abortion operations do not offer.
