Ted Cruz really has it in for American women. This false messiah has decided that women don’t deserve the right to make their own reproductive choices, but what’s worse, he wants to eliminate a very important part of their overall care: access to Planned Parenthood’s many non-abortion services, including cancer screenings, STD treatments, contraception, and more.
And he wants the nation’s pastors to help him radicalize their congregations. He has even prepared a sample sermon for them: “The Cry of the Innocent for the Soul of a Nation,” brought to you by the woman-haters at David Lane’s American Renewal Project.
Because you can’t renew America without putting women back in their place. What’s funny is that this is how Al Qaeda radicalizes Muslims.
But here’s the sermon. See what you think:
Proverbs provides clear insight into God’s character. He has a personal hatred for seven things. God judges them to be so odious that they are an abomination to Him. His character will never allow His hatred of an abomination to evolve into a toleration of it. His children should be resolved to reflect His character, not to redefine it.
The Wise give shape to their personal and national character by loving what God loves and hating what God hates. Fools worship gods created by their vain imagination. They drift from the compass of God’s character. Their ears become deaf to His voice and their hearts become calloused to the touch of His hand. Any accumulative error of moral judgment is disastrous on a personal and a national level.
The abomination of any individual or any nation begins with the first act of disobedience to God. He finds rebellion disgusting, abhorrent and repugnant because it leads to a separation from Him and a loss of intimacy with Him.
When an individual or a nation stiff arms the character of God and embraces an abomination as the law of the land, it ends in disaster. When rebellious people disregard the compass of the most powerful, it is a very short step to dismembering the bodies of the most vulnerable. Like other nations, America has taken that step. It is time for a turnaround.
Recent videos exposing the gruesome practice of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of the organs of babies from their mother’s womb. Exposing evil to the light of day has brought waves of sorrow to millions of tenderhearted people. Sorrow is redemptive only when it leads to repentance. Repentance requires a stopping point and a turning point. Without both there is no Spiritual Awakening on a personal or a national level.
There must be a point in which the accumulative error of an evil decision thrust upon the nation by secularist jurists stops. It must be followed by a turnaround that is spiritual, not political. That day has come. Let the breath in your lungs be used to pray for it to begin in your own heart.
A repentant person turns towards Jesus, and receives God’s forgiveness. A praying church mobilizes an army of repentant people calling on God to use His children as instruments to guide lost people and a wayward nation back to The Father. God can do more in five minutes, through the life of one obedient person than millions of rebels can accomplish in 50 years of their own effort. Be the one. The Victory is His. Pray for it. It is only a breath away.
After you pray for your life to be back on course, pray for your Congressmen and Senators to hear from God regarding the ending of the slaughter of the innocent. Let them know that you are praying for them, and you are expecting them to do the right thing. You will no longer tolerate any excuse when they have the chance to vote to end government sponsored support of the murder and dismemberment of babies in this session of Congress. God hates it. You can stop it. For God’s sake, make it happen.
Slaughter of the innocent. This from the party that refuses to help feed and clothe and educate them after they are born. There is nothing pro-life about this position. If they were pro-life, they would not expect women to die so a child can be born, even when it’s a fetus that might itself die at or soon after birth.
The assumption that every American must turn towards Jesus is simply appalling, an attitude dating from the Theodosian Code of the early fifth century, which expected everybody to become Christian – the right kind of Christian – or suffer the consequences.
Well, women today are suffering the consequences.
All because they say no to letting Ted Cruz make their healthcare decisions for them. And if they say no, they are guilty of waging a war on Christianity, a meme that, as Simon Brown at AU’s Wall of Separation pointed out the other day, was debunked a long time ago.
Nobody is waging a war on Cruz’s religion. They just want to be left alone to make their own decisions. Like the United States Constitution guarantees.
What Cruz is calling for is nullification of the First Amendment. No surprise here either since the only amendments Republicans approve of are the Second and Tenth.
And all in the name of a lie, the lie that the Bible condemns abortion. It does not. It no more condemns abortion than it does gays and lesbians, or declares that marriage is between one man and one woman.
Ted Cruz is a liar. He wants America’s pastors to join him in that lie, to serve the Father of Lies rather than the God to whom they pretend allegiance.
He is, in fact, little different in outlook from the terrorists Hillary Clinton compared Republicans to the other day. Worse, from a Christian standpoint, he has, in his own language, declared himself the Anti-Christ.
Hrafnkell Haraldsson, a social liberal with leanings toward centrist politics has degrees in history and philosophy. His interests include, besides history and philosophy, human rights issues, freedom of choice, religion, and the precarious dichotomy of freedom of speech and intolerance. He brings a slightly different perspective to his writing, being that he is neither a follower of an Abrahamic faith nor an atheist but a polytheist, a modern-day Heathen who follows the customs and traditions of his Norse ancestors. He maintains his own blog, A Heathen’s Day, which deals with Heathen and Pagan matters, and Mos Maiorum Foundation www.mosmaiorum.org, dedicated to ethnic religion. He has also contributed to NewsJunkiePost, GodsOwnParty and Pagan+Politics.
