You do wonder, sometimes, what goes on in seminaries–at least, when you see the kind of graduates coming out of seminaries. A little tag from Revelation springs to mind: “the synogogue of Satan” (Rev. 2:9).
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. –The Third Commandment
The verse shanghaied by the trendy minister was John 10:10, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Obviously an abundant life would include as many abortions as you like, paid for by someone who objects to having to do it. If you can follow this woman’s labyrinthine reasoning, 1. she doesn’t want to “force her religious beliefs” on anyone else, 2. therefore persons allowed by Judge Kavanagh to not fund their employees’ abortions, as required by an Obamacare “mandate” that Judge Kavanagh ruled against, 3. must have secular beliefs imposed on them. Honk if that makes sense to you.
To anyone but a blithering moron it’s obvious that “abundant life” is hardly in the cards for an aborted baby.
Oh, I almost forgot! The trendy minister is also a “reproductive health advocate,” with “reproductive health” as a euphemism for abortion, and a “community development organizer,” whatever than is. Your community can almost certainly get on swimmingly well without any community organizers of any kind.
The trendy minister got into the abortion wars–she describes herself as “pro-life,” but I don’t think she understands what that word means–when her employer churlishly refused to pay for her IUD. Uh, like, call me simple, but why couldn’t she pay for her own IUD? Libs are always screaming about keeping the government out of their bedrooms; and then they turn around and drag the government into the freakin’ bedroom. They’re always doing that.
And of course the big thing the trendy minister has done here is to take God’s word and try to make Him bear false witness against Himself. She tells a lie in the name of God Almighty.
Yo, chuckles, it’s time to repent.
Before something like the tower of Siloam falls on you. That’s in the Bible, Luke 13:1-5.
But she’ll probably twist those verses to mean that God wants us to worship iPads.
