Old-time pagans sacrificed babies to their idol, Moloch. I’ll bet they had public funding for it, too.
Why can’t we get Planned Parenthood defunded? Why, after the whole world has seen PP honchos on videotape wheeling and dealing in baby parts–some of them “harvested” with the baby still alive–can’t we get Congress to stop giving them half a billion dollars of our tax money every year?
I’ll tell you why: because it’s a religious issue.
Because, to feminists and other libs and progs, abortion is a sacrament.
Don’t believe me? But Democrats and the rest of the Loving Left have been saying this for years. Here’s a bit from 1998:
“The lights were low, and Native American flute music played softly. A counselor held the woman’s hand, whispering words of comfort as she began to surface from a guided meditation. Then the doctor showed the woman a covered silver bowl that held the tiny remains [that is, her baby] of her six-week pregnancy. ‘We ask your blessing, in the name of love…'” ( http://www.forerunner.com/champion/X0002_Abortion_Sacrament.html )
Barf bag, please.
Here’s a more recent example, from 2014:
“I now consider abortion to be a major blessing, and to be a sacrament in the hands of women…” ( http://www.lifenews.com/2014/12/26/abortionist-calls-abortion-a-sacrament-and-a-blessing/ ).
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
This fallen world has long been cursed with premeditated murder performed as human sacrifice–a sacrament of a false and wicked pseudo-church.
Secular humanism apes real religion. It has its holy scriptures–Marx, Darwin, Freud, John Lennon–and its priesthood of politicians, scientists, public school teachers, and interllecturals. It has sensitivity training as a form of confession. It has its own End Times scenario, Global Warming.
And it has abortion.
We can’t pry the money out of their hands because abortion is sacred to them.
But I think we’d better try a lot harder.
