Planned Parenthood and Moloch

In the time of the ancient Israelites, the Old Testament tells of periods when the Jews fell into apostasy and began to worship false gods and idols.  Among these pernicious straying’s from God included the worship of Moloch, with its rite of child-sacrifice, brought to them from the Ammonites during the 7th century B.C. 
 
"Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable idol of Moab, on the mountain which is east of Jerusalem, and for Moloch the detestable idol of the sons of Ammon." ~ 1 Kings 11:7

The ancients would stoke a raging fire within this idol of Moloch and place their newborn babies in the arms of it thereby watching them burn to death in order to offer their sacrifices to him.

Leviticus 18:21 says, "Neither shall you give any of your offspring to offer them to Moloch, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the Lord."

This offering to the god-idol Moloch was done for the favor of the parent.

Nine thousand years later we are still sacrificing our children for the supposed favor of their parents. 

Planned Parenthood is at the very core of this despicable and evil sacrificing of our unborn children.  This vile organization has been riddled with scandal and controversy over the course of its entire existence.  From its founding by the racist eugenics proponent, Margaret Sanger, to more recent scandals of not reporting to legal authorities victims of sex trafficking or incest that had sought out abortions, we now have come across the latest publicized scandal: the selling of aborted baby body parts.

I was disgusted and horrified, like most Americans, as I watched the video of “Doctor” Deborah Nucatola – Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services – dispassionately discuss over the course of her lunch of wine and salad how she skillfully killed unborn babies in a manner that preserved their organs in order that they could be harvested for sale for “medical researchers”.

"We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, I'm not gonna crush that part, I'm gonna basically crush below, I'm gonna crush above, and I'm gonna see if I can get it all intact."

When the under-cover baby-parts “buyer” asked about getting the patient’s consent to harvest her child for its organs, Nucatola sounded exasperated:

“That’s probably the biggest inconvenience, ugh. That’s one more thing my staff has to talk about.”

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards has apologized for Nucatola’s “tone” and manner of speaking.  This, in itself, tells how frightened Planned Parenthood is about the public backlash from this.  In all honesty, Richard’s apologetic remarks for Nucatola’s “tone” are inconsistent with their stated beliefs.  After all, if these aren’t really babies and are simply “tissue” specimens, why would Ms. Richards have to apologize for “Dr.”Nucatola’s tone when discussing the matter?  Nobody would need to apologize for simply “harvesting” tissue for use in medical research. 

The fact is these are absolutely recognizable living unborn babies that were sacrificed for the convenience of the parents.  Richards apologized because even some of the people that claim to be pro-abortion had to come face-to-face with the facts that these human children were being killed and their livers, heart, lungs, and other organs were “harvested” in the name of “research”. 

I don’t condemn those that feel so desperate that they see abortion as their only choice to deal with an unwanted pregnancy.  I feel extremely sorry for them and pray for God’s comfort, wisdom, and guidance for them.  I pray for the abortionists as well.  That said, what Planned Parenthood and other similar institutions do are nothing short of evil.  The killing of the unborn is inarguably against orthodox Christian and Jewish doctrine.  It is against Natural Law.  It is against common sense.

Moloch was an ancient false god whose worshippers sacrificed their children to him.  Today Moloch’s followers more commonly refer to him by his new name “Choice”.



Post Script:  The United States provides funding for Planned Parenthood via tax-payer dollars.  In 2014, the amount of public taxes that went to support them was nearly $550 million dollars – over a half of a billion dollars!

While I have yet to endorse any candidate for president thus far, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has introduced an Amendment to bill H.R. 22 (the vehicle for the highway bill) that would defund Planned Parenthood of any further tax payer dollars.  While this evil institution needs to be eradicated, cutting all federal funding is a good first step.  Please sign this petition to your U.S. Congressman and Senators if you support Senator Paul’s efforts with his amendment.

A Country Run by Idiots

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.  

If you have to get your parent's permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.

If, in the largest city in the nation, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you live in a country run by idiots.  

If an 80-year-old woman can be strip-searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you live in a country run by idiots.  

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.

If it is okay to hate those citizens that disagree with gay “marriage” because THEY are intolerant, then you live in a country run by idiots.

If politicians demand that a burger flipper in McDonald's should be making $15 an hour, while those in the military that are putting their lives in danger daily typically make far less than that, then you live in a country run by idiots.

If your politicians pass a healthcare law that is “for the benefit of all the people” but exempt themselves from it, then you live in a country run by corrupt idiots.

If hundreds of millions of your tax-payer dollars each year go to fund an organization that kills unborn children and then further profits from selling their body parts, then you live in a country run by ghoulish idiots.

If your company is forced by federal mandate to provide abortifacients and birth control in violation of your conscience, faith, and first amendment religious right, then you live is a country run by un-constitutional idiots.

If you are offended by this article, I'll bet you voted for the idiots who are running our great country into the ground.

Isidewith Quiz: Helping the American Voter in the 2016 Presidential Race

I have long held that a vast majority of the American voting public is woefully under-educated (or completely uneducated) when it comes to civics, current events, domestic policies, foreign affairs, economics, and history.  It is simply a fact that most of our populace is sadly ignorant.  I don’t necessarily mean this as a pejorative indictment against them.  I understand that most Americans are simply busy trying to raise a family, go to work, and pay the bills.  Paying attention to politics and the issues of the day as they relate to the governing of our nation simply aren’t as high of a priority for most people with the scant time they have left in the day.  Understandable.  I do get it.
 
That being said, if we don’t pay attention to these issues, when the time comes to vote, we are not knowledgeable about which candidate truly represents our own views on issues.  We, therefore, often end up voting for a candidate based on sound bites in the media, or what is trending on Facebook.  We vote by what is popular without understanding the ramifications of what our decisions truly should be, based on our own values.  This is how we end up with un-qualified and integrity-challenged candidates such as Barack Obama in the White House.

Luckily, I have come across a website that can help those Americans that might not have the time to conduct the research needed into the myriads of candidates and their positions that are running for president.  This site is isidewith.com.

This website has compiled the various positions of each presidential candidate based on their stated stance on any given issue and created a quiz for voters to take to see which candidate most closely reflects the voter’s given views.  If a candidate speaks repeatedly on a given issue during their campaign, then their passion score for that given issue goes up.  If they pull a Romney or an Obama and flip flop on a particular matter, their most current position will be used to match your response, but their passion score on that issue will go down.

It takes anywhere from ten to fifteen minutes to complete this fairly comprehensive quiz.  When doing this quiz, please note that there is a sliding scale to the left of each question that you need to adjust according to how important you think a particular issue is.  The quiz’s algorithm judges the passion/conviction of the candidate with the importance level you deemed the given issue.  Further, please be aware that each question in the quiz will often have more than just “yes” or “no” options for your response listed under “other stances”.  To get the most accurate results of which candidate best represents your views, check to see if there is a better answer there besides just the yes or no responses accordingly.

There are eight sections of issues in this comprehensive quiz: social, environmental, economic, domestic policy, healthcare, education, foreign policy, and immigration.  Note that each of these eight sections start with just a handful of questions on the quiz.  At the bottom of each section is a text link to show additional questions. Your results for the quiz will be much more accurate if you answer all of these questions under each section and determine how important each issue is to you on the sliding scale previously mentioned.

My quiz results were not horribly surprising to me, as I have done a lot of research and am definitely more up to date on political issues and current events than is the average American voter.  While I have not chosen a candidate that I will back in the primary election to date, there are a handful of people that I am considering as possibilities.  The top four best matches with my views and values were indeed the candidates I am currently considering.  Further, the candidates I have least in common with are indeed at the bottom of the results list where they should be.


I recommend this quiz for all American voters, whether politically educated or not.  I think some people will actually be surprised that the candidate that best reflects their viewpoints may not be the person they thought it would be.  If this prompts otherwise politically ignorant American voters to delve a little deeper into the candidates before casting their all-important vote, then this is indeed a valuable tool, and one that is sorely needed. 

My results are below:

A Letter to the Gay Community from a Loving Daughter

The cultural, and now legal, redefinition of marriage does indeed have enormous societal ramifications, particularly for the children of gay parents, as I have repeatedly argued.  This open letter from the daughter of a lesbian mother and her mother's partner helps to explain her anguish. Sadly this girl and many other children of gay parents that have had the temerity to speak out are either squelched or shamed back into silence.

With the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage across the country last week, we are told by its supporters that "love wins".  But it seems to me that we are simply putting our own desires of whom we choose to sexually love over the loving needs of our children.  Gay marriage doesn't hurt anybody we are told by its proponents.

Try telling that to Heather Barwick and the thousands of other children of gay parents.
