LEGAL ABORTION RENDERS US IMPOTENT AGAINST RADICAL ISLAM

Lord, we pray for your Church would be a vocal moral conscience for our country.

Each faith has its own rules for right behavior to which non-members are not bound. My Jewish friends don’t care if I eat a pork chop.  Whether or not non-Catholics eat a steak on Ash Wednesday or don’t go to church means nothing to me.  It’s one of the glories of our country that we respect these differences.  Tolerance and mutual respect help us live together in peace, but they constitute the seed of relativism with which every faith in our open society has to contend.

Learn how to pray through the news.

How do we understand what values are particular to our faith group and which should be universal?  A chaste college freshman encountering free-love dorm life may think, “Although it is wrong for me to engage in promiscuous premarital sex, it’s not against the moral code of my classmates and is therefore not wrong for them.”  This perspective leads directly to rationalizing abortion on the same ground.  To adopt the “personally-opposed to abortion but won’t oppose a woman’s choice” position, by the nature of abortion, requires accepting simultaneous conflicting fundamental truths, and in turn requires that no essential truth exists.  If someone close to you has an abortion, it can’t be murder because your loved one is not a murderer. Morally, how do you square the near-universal revulsion at a mother killing her newborn baby with the large segment of society that will fight for her right to end the baby’s life a week or two earlier?

By continuing to allow legal abortion, we tacitly proclaim that abortion is not wrong.  If deliberately terminating an innocent baby is not wrong, then what is wrong?  The answer is “nothing.”  If nothing is wrong, then morality is just a construct, and no religion has any basis for claiming validity.

This nothingness is why we can’t rationally discuss important issues anymore.  The idea of a higher truth encourages debate.  No matter how firmly we hold our convictions, if we believe that there is an ideal truth which we desire to comprehend, it is possible to rationally argue, with the hope of persuading and/or learning from people with whom we disagree.

If we don’t believe in an ultimate truth, but only our own individual truth, then such a discussion serves no purpose.  It would be like arguing green is better than purple — utterly meaningless.

  1. This spilling of innocent blood places a curse on the land. The moral equivocation about abortion renders us unable to win moral arguments and undermines faith with arguments about variable versus absolute truth. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. He is the truth and he has ordained the things which are true and the things which are not.

  2. Of course we need to pray that Americans will recognize and love the truth. The Bible tells us that people perish “because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (2 Thessalonians 2:10).

    But it is not the LEGALITY of abortion that renders us impotent against the spread of Islam; it is the PRACTICE of it. And this is true of birth control as well. Muslims are the fastest-growing religious group in the world. Much of this is due to demographics. Muslim women simply have more children. They are obeying God’s command, given first to Adam and then reiterated to Noah, to be fruitful and multiply. If Americans had obeyed God’s mandate to be fruitful and multiply, our social security system wouldn’t be in trouble, there wouldn’t be any need to bolster our labor force with imported workers, and there would be less chance that American Muslims would outnumber American Christians in the coming decades.

    I am not a Catholic. In his book Godly Seed, Allan C. Carlson writes: “Mostly forgotten is the fact that, as recently as one hundred years ago, it was American Evangelical Protestants who waged the most aggressive and effective campaigns against the practice of BIRTH CONTROL [emphasis added] within the United States; Roman Catholics quietly applauded on the sidelines.”

    Abortion is murder. Of course we need to pray it will become illegal. We also need to pray that American Christians will search their hearts and ask God to show them what He would have them do about birth control. And that’s the truth.

  3. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord,
    He is tramp-ling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
    He hath loosed the fateful light=ning of His terrible swift sword’
    His TRUTH is marching on!
    Glory! glory, hallelujah! His truth IS marching on!

    1. Hi Marilee, every time I have a spiritual victory in my life this song comes to my mind. I don’t seek it out, it is just ‘there’ playing in my mind. Awesome! I say thank you Lord for the victories and the victory song.
