Rev. Byron Snapp retired from writing for Chalcedon shortly before I came on board, so I never had the opportunity to work with him.
His 1999 magazine article, Oaths and Religion, reminds us that in this respect, at least, “religion and politics do mix.”
Bear in mind that this was written back when the Clinton impeachment trial in the Senate provided us with “a real opportunity for our society to see how it defines truth.” And what we wound up with was, “It depends on what is is.”
Now we have “your truth and my truth,” with men insisting that they’re women and all the rest of our current war against reality–a war, we might say, against truth itself.
Our posterity will laugh at us for that.
Here’s what these persons want God to bless.
“God bless abortion providers!”
Yup, they’re still out there trampling on the Third Commandment, Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain–the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice ( http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/10/13/thank-god-abortion-providers-episcopal-methodist-clergy-bless-abortion-clinic/ ).
See how skillfully they trick God into bearing false witness against His own written word. Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt do no murder. Oh! But what I really meant is that abortion providers do My work!
It’s mostly Methodist and Episcopal ministers and she-priests. The president of Clergy for Baby-Killing is the Rev. Henry Knox. It will not surprise you to learn that he is “married” to another man.
They call down blessings on the abortion clinic buildings and upon the murderers within.
Blasphemy piled on blasphemy. This is the reprobate church. They worship Moloch.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood announces that from now on, they won’t take any money for baby parts. This comes after they deny selling baby parts. They never did it before and they won’t do it anymore.
