Oklahoma Billboard Declares “People of Faith Love Those Who Have Abortions.”

Published

on

Right in the heart of the Bible belt, a pro-abortion advocacy group has paid for a highly controversial message to be plastered above a busy highway: “people of faith love those who love abortion.”

Now, first of all, this message could be very consistent with biblical teachings: yes, we ought to love those who have abortions, particularly those who have been deceived into believing that they terminated a “clump of cells” rather than a baby.

But does that mean that we love abortion?

This deceptive wording seems to be deliberate, but make no mistake, Oklahoma Call for Reproductive Justice is definitely trying to argue that people of faith can support abortion.

Their squishy and poorly defended argument appears on their website:

In nearly every major faith tradition there are circumstances when abortion is an accepted and respected choice. There are even times when it is a mandate. When individuals seek to universally end or limit abortion rights for all women based on a particular understanding of God, faith, or religion, others suffer. Just as some faithful may choose not to end a pregnancy based on an understanding of faith and God, others may choose abortion consistent with the teachings of faith and under the guidance of a loving relationship with God.

The intersection of faith and abortion in Oklahoma is powerful and deserves to be examined in a more honest and inclusive way than what we have witnessed in recent local debate. Anti-choice folks do not represent the only faith perspective on abortion, in fact far from it. In short, we believe you can support abortion rights because of your faith, not in spite of it.

As you can see, there is absolutely no evidence given for when a religion ay “mandate” abortion, and while I’m unsure about the Islamic sources or Hindu or Buddhist religious texts, I can certainly tell you this is never the case in the biblical text.

SCOTUS Sides With Religious Schools And Hospitals In Employment Discrimination Case

Published

on

The Supreme Court, in its second religious freedom decision, decided to side with religious employers, which includes schools, hospitals, and social services organizations, stating they are exempt from certain aspects of the employment discrimination law when that law conflicts with closely held religious beliefs. If you listen closely, you can hear the screams of the angry LGBTQ+ mob ripping through America as it dawns on them they have no right to force their beliefs upon those who disagree with their lifestyle choices. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: The 7-2 decision had the same breakdown as the Supreme Court’s contraception mandate decision; Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservatives, as did Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The case before the court involved two Catholic schools, St. James Catholic School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, that dismissed employees who later sued. Religious institutions typically have a so-called “ministerial exemption” allowing them more leeway in hiring and firing and certain protection from employment discrimination suits, but the case before the Supreme Court ultimately tested whether there was a specific limit to that “ministerial exemption,” particularly where the fired employees were not technically members of the church’s ministry. Employers have the right to decide who they want to hire and not hire, to terminate employment or not. It’s their business. They should be able to do what they want. Especially when it comes to actual religious institutions. This is a hard pill to swallow for the left who seems to think that employers themselves, by starting a business, have no rights, or give those up the moment they create a company. If a business owner doesn’t want someone to work at their business, they have the right to say…

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…
