Bill Maher’s Blasphemy, Idiotic View of Biblical Theology and Bad Math by Michael Bresciani

If Barack Obama is, as some now say, the imperial President he may want to be on the lookout for a liberal leaning court jester – who better than late night master of malediction – Bill Maher.

Not satisfied just to blaspheme God, Maher decided to insult 60 million Americans for believing in the Bible and specifically for their belief in the story of Noah’s Ark. In a video provided by The Blaze, Maher is seen surrounded by his usual sycophants all adoringly transfixed on their guru of garbage and ready to laugh, seemingly – right on cue, faces beaming, for the privilege of being in the presence of the master of mindless malevolent mayhem and muck.

Maher thought it was sporting to call God a “psychotic mass murderer” because he decided to destroy all of the ancients in a flood. Maher said he destroyed the good and the bad, but that isn’t what the record says. He destroyed them all because none of them had a stitch of decent moral behavior according to the bible. God told Abraham he would not destroy the city of Sodom if he could find only ten righteous people there. The rest of that story is history.

Poking fun at the idea of all the animals of the earth being indigenous to a five mile area around the ark brought snickers. In fact, the knowledge of the flood was put inside the animals which could have been traversing to the ark for weeks, months or perhaps years.

Comparing Maher’s legacy with that of Noah’s Ark is where stark contrast truly begins. Missions have been sent to Mt Ararat to search for the ark and some have even returned with hewn gopher wood recovered on the 14K level of the mountain. Countless models have been made of the ark and the latest will be a $73 million dollar replica in a theme park. Several movies have been made about Noah’s Ark, including the controversial version recently produced, which stars actor Russell Crowe.

We have but to ask, how many missions will be sent to Maher’s remains to determine the place and meaning of his life. Who will make a model or a monument to him and what kind of a movie could be made about his life except a comedy about a ranting, scoffing, scowling and blaspheming comedian.

Gorging himself with an inflated view of his own intelligence and surrounding himself with a gaggle of giggling goofballs only gives new definition to the meaning of Christ’s proclamation, found in Luke’s gospel, which may be Maher’s only true contribution to the world.

“Woe unto you that laugh now! For ye shall mourn and weep.” (Luke 6: 25b)

Maher may stay up late thinking of ways to mock Christians and the bible, but it is clear that he has never honed in on the Quran and those that adhere to its anti-life, angry and confusing message. That fact was best reflected in a mention made by one blogger, also found on the Blaze. In a quote from someone called Rhuh-Rhoh (handle) was this coruscated challenge to Maher…

“Billy, Please take this thought process to the Middle East and tell the Muslim world there is no Mohammad…we will await the open minded response you are sure to receive”

Maher’s math leaves so much to be desired when considering, that if God is nonexistent, the ark is a child’s story and the flood is a myth then exactly how many people did God kill. Yes, you can do this math with only a fourth grade education – the answer is zero as in (0). If no one was killed at all, why is Maher maligning a mythical killer? Could it be that Maher may have a doubt?

In fact, if Bill has a doubt, who would he confess it to; would he look up the nearest scientist and let it be known that he is slipping toward – belief?

Maher balked that since science is now 400 years underway, no one but idiots could believe the biblical account of anything. He made reference to Copernicus, who formulated the heliocentric model of the solar system, which places the sun, not the earth, at the center of our system. He failed to mention that after the invention of the telescope, just about anyone, a member of the clergy, a school kid, or a complete idiot could have made the same discovery.

But accidents will happen even in science. We have to wonder if Isaac Newton really discovered gravity or was it that no one noticed it until something (the apple) happened to hit them on the head. Is that enlightenment – or a moment of cognizance, rare in the renaissance, to everyone churched or not? Perhaps the universities and schools of the past were not close enough to apple orchards to start the age of enlightenment any sooner.

Maher would have us all refusing the God who gave us his Son to die for our sins in favor of scientists who have shown us nothing but a flawless record of pure truth and marvelous discoveries through empiricism and shear brilliance.

Besides all the tablets and wonderfully distracting hand held gadgets, we must include discoveries such as nerve gas, biological, and atomic weapons that could completely destroy every man, women and child on the planet. Should we thank science now or wait until some fool pushes the little red launch button?

It would be hard to find the center for our worship for the new god of science since there are just so many scientists. Perhaps we could consider the hundreds of liberal, Godless universities and colleges as science’s churches and the collective mind of man as the god of science. Even with that, we would for several obvious reasons; still be worshipping an invisible god.

Let’s check the record for science before we make it just another golden calf to bow down to.

The best point to begin with is science’s refusal to concur on exactly when the life of our species begins. We were not surprised by Barack Obama’s answer to that question during the 2008 presidential debate at Saddleback Church when he stated that it was a question that was – “above his pay grade.”

But, Barack is no scientist, so what’s the scientist’s excuse? In fact, before we charge God with being a killer, let’s look closer to home. Since 1973 over 56 million babies have met with death at the hands of people full of pride about scientific discoveries, but way too dumb to answer the question of when life begins in the womb.

The entire population of the earth in Noah’s time was less than 7 million – it seems we are ahead of God in killings by 49 million just in America alone and 143 million worldwide. What’s our excuse except that we don’t want them (the precious babies) around to clutter up our own dreams and personal goals for life? Unlike the reprobates of old – our victims are perfectly innocent.

Then along comes the ‘one giant leap for mankind’ crowd still gloating over a jaunt to the moon even as our societal upheavals are approaching Armageddon or World War Three and a child dies of starvation and neglect every five seconds in our world. Is science myopic? It takes no telescope to see a starving child and no rocket ship to reach them with a morsel of bread.

How many years were spent watching the blood of the sick and diseased pour into buckets under the guise of scientific knowledge, then referred to as ‘bloodletting?’

Maher chided the Jews for their wool garb and others for their silly liturgical observances and hygienic practices like the washing of pots and hands, all while forgetting to mention the thousands who died of infections in our hospitals and clinics all because some medical interns didn’t know enough to wash their hands.

Yeah, let’s do yet more mindless obeisance to science. No black stuffy wool for those involved in all that is nascent and kosher in the realms of empirical thought.

How many years did science insist that a man’s moral philosophy was determined by the shape of his skull. Phrenology was a well-accepted pseudoscience of the day, but today there are many more, the least of which is the idea of conquering space with ease to bring in the man-made promise of ‘heaven’ through inter-stellar space travel.

Without space warps or quantum theory breakthroughs we can say with certainty that if man could approach the speed of light and travel halfway across the universe the sun would be burned out at the return of anyone sent on that ‘historic’ journey. What would they come home to; even the scientists won’t be here.

Should we fail to mention that birds and insects have taken to flight for thousands of years, man has been airborne since 1903, a period of 111 years. Let’s not be so pompous, are we now on the cusp of ‘conquering’ space? Maher and friends would have a hard time blaming the Christians for this long gap of non-scientific discovery, after all the enlightenment was a full 300 years underway before we got off the ground for the first time.

Last but not least along comes the ‘everything from nothing’ crowd mindlessly led by the cogitations of one Charles Darwin. Still missing are the expected tens of thousands of links, especially those between the imagined stages of development for mankind. The few allegedly found are still highly suspect and some have been proven to be outright frauds. Faltering carbon dating and a few layers of inexplicable layering of the strata are hardly ‘scientific’ proof of anything except that man has a full and rich imagination and has finally found a universal excuse to remove all accountability to the Creator God.

We can safely assume that if science can climb over and totally disregard their own second law of thermodynamics (entropy) blithely sailing ahead to the belief that everything came from nothing; then all that is left, is to find a Bill Maher and engage him to excoriate the Christians on the subject of Noah’s Ark and over 250 references to God as the sole creator of the earth and everything in it.

Among the different kinds of pre-exilic, post-exilic, Messianic and pre-millennial prophecies of the bible is yet another kind of prophecy that peered into the future even to see Bill Maher. In the Psalms, the Prophet-King David looked far ahead and through the mists of time, Bill Maher was seen sitting at his late night post rambling and postulating about everything he knows little to nothing about, and David said…

“The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.” (Psalm 14: 1a)

Maher drew the biggest laugh of the evening when he said unlike the religious people, science was not satisfied to just ask, “Where does the sun go at night.” The bible was not given to answer such a silly question since God knew he gave men enough savvy to find that out for themselves.

The question the bible answers is – where the soul of man goes after death.

There remains only one pertinent question to ask – would you trust Bill Maher to answer that question for you?

For the 60 million Americans, Maher so callously insulted, we have to concur, we will not hear his voice or the voices of a thousand scientists that may cause us to stray from the one who has overcome death for us.

We hear the voice of a Conqueror – not a comedian, we serve a King – not a jester and we know that soon all voices will be silenced and over-shadowed by the sounding of the last trumpet of God followed by this angelic proclamation.

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” (Rev 11: 15)

Huckabee Provides 10-Minute Platform for Possible 2016 Presidential Run at CPAC; Exhorts Americans Not to Forget God BY NAPP NAZWORTH , CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. – Gov. Mike Huckabee only had 10 minutes to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, but in that time he described what could be a full platform for the 2016 presidential race.

His 10-minute CPAC speech tackled every issue one would expect from a Republican presidential candidate: healthcare, foreign policy, tax policy, abortion, Israel, parental rights, gun rights, religious liberty and the NSA, IRS and Benghazi scandals.

    Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R) speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference held in National Harbor, Md., March 7, 2014.

He also spoke about God.

“I know there’s a God. And I know that this nation would not exist had He not been the midwife of its birth. And I know that this nation exists by the providence of His hand and if this nation forgets our God, then God will have every right to forget about us,” he said.

Huckabee quoted Ruth Bell Graham, Billy Graham’s wife, who said in the 1970s, “If God does not bring fiery judgment on America, then He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

“I hope that we repent before we ever have to receive His fiery judgment,” he said. “… There is no other way to explain our history, other than by His hand of providence. And I hope that is something Americans are never ashamed of, and are never afraid to speak. No, it’s not politically correct … but in the hearts of most Americans, deep down we know it to be true.”

There is a “50/50 chance” he will run for president, Huckabee said in December. In his CPAC speech, Huckabee sounded like he was eager to hit the campaign trail again.

Huckabee was the longest serving governor in Arkansas and finished second, behind John McCain, in the race to become the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. He currently hosts a Fox News show, “Huckabee,” which is the network’s most popular weekend program.

Here are some other key quotes from the CPAC speech:

Healthcare: “Republicans have a better idea of an insurance that is in the marketplace and taking those who cannot find insurance and putting them in a special pool that does make it possible for people with severe developmental disabilities and people with extraordinary costs to be covered, but not at the expense of completely changing the insurance market where no one can afford it ….”

Parental rights: “Mothers and fathers raise better children than governments ever will.”

Benghazi: “Our government lied to us about what happened and I know it had not one thing to do with some ridiculous video. … With all due respect to Hillary Clinton, it does make a difference ….”

IRS scandal: “The IRS is a criminal enterprise. … The best way to get the IRS off our backs and out of our lives is to enact a fair tax ….”

Abortion: “A society that sacrifices its own children is no better than the ancient Philistines. … Every person has intrinsic worth and value. … None of us are disposable … Every life should be treated with dignity and respect.”

Veterans: “This nation must make sure that the first fruits of its treasury go to those who serve in uniform and everyone else must stand behind them before we receive anything from this government.”

NSA spying scandal: “A government that spies on its people and lies to its people is taking us on a trajectory toward tyranny and must be changed.”

Israel: “We spend more time pressuring Israel to stop building bedrooms in the land that was given to them by Abraham than we put pressure on the Iranians to stop building bombs that are pointed toward us.”

Military spending: “It is the duty and responsibility of the American government to make us safer and more secure, not less.”

Religious liberty: “It’s time for the government to scale back, not for people of faith to scale back. Religious liberty should be unimpeded in this nation.”

Life Begins at Delivery, Planned Parenthood President Says [Video] BY NAPP NAZWORTH , CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER

Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards said the lives of her three children began when she delivered them, in a Thursday interview on Fusion’s “America with Jorge Ramos.”

Richards at first dodged the question several times, arguing that the question of when life begins is unrelated to the issue of abortion.

“When does life start? When does a human being become a human being?” Ramos asked.

The question “will be debated through the centuries,” Richards said, and people hold different views on when life begins.

“But for you, when is that point?” Ramos pressed.

Richards then answered that the question is not part of the conversation about whether abortion should be legal. Every woman needs to make their own decision and Planned Parenthood wants them to have “all their options for health care.”

Ramos then asked a third time: “Why would it be so controversial for you to say when you think life starts?”

“I don’t know that it’s controversial. I don’t know that it’s really relevant to the conversation,” Richards answered.

Richards then explained that she believes life begins when the baby is delivered.

“For me, I’m the mother of three children. For me, life began when I delivered them. They’ve been probably the most important thing in my life ever since. But that was my own personal decision.”

Planned Parenthood Employees View Abortion as ‘Rite of Passage,’ Former Nurse Says; Shares Disturbing Behavior of Doctors BY STOYAN ZAIMOV, CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER

A former Planned Parenthood nurse said that employees at the abortion facility in Indianapolis view abortion as a “rite of passage,” and described the institution as an “evil and sad place to work,” revealing some of the disturbing behavior of its doctors.

Marianne Anderson, who worked at Planned Parenthood from 2010 to 2012, shared in an interview last week with The Criterion, newspaper of the Indianapolis Archdiocese, that she began feeling uneasy about her job starting up patients’ conscious sedation program when people from the national office in New York came to teach them the process.

“It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: ‘Abortion all the time!’ I thought, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ That was about six to eight months after I started,” Anderson said.

“Those women from New York acted like an abortion was a rite of passage. They were like, ‘How can you not offer abortion to women? It’s their body. They should be able to do whatever they want. How can you force them to have a baby? Abortion should be free to anybody, anytime.'”

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky declined to comment to The Christian Post on Thursday.

In her interview, Anderson went into detail about some of the experiences around her job that stuck with her, including treating a Korean girl she was sure was a sex slave. She also described the disturbing behavior of some of the doctors: 

“One doctor, when he was in the POC (products of conception) room, would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. ‘Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me!’ It just made me sick to my stomach,” she continued.

“The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me.”

The former nurse said that 20-30 abortions were carried out a day at the facility where she worked, including medical abortion by pill.

She described her former place of employment as a “money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work.”

“You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open. In our meetings they’d tell us, ‘If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours,'” she revealed.

“They would allow girls to have ultrasounds that were obviously way too far along [the legal limit for having an abortion in Indiana is 13 weeks and six days]. They said, ‘If they want to be seen, you just put them through, no problem,’ just taking advantage to make money.”

Anderson was fired from her job in July 2012, though she said she had planned on quitting anyway. She was then hired by Community North [Hospital], a job which she says she loves.

“God didn’t give us the right to take another life. I don’t seek revenge. I just want to right a wrong,” she said as she described why she began to speak publicly about her experience. She noted that she joined And Then There Were None, a nonprofit organization to help former Planned Parenthood workers heal from their former work, which helped her deal with regret over abortions she assisted with.

Last week, Planned Parenthood settled a wrongful death case where the abortion provider agreed to pay $2 million to the family of a botched abortion victim, 24-year-old Tonya Reaves, who died following a late-term abortion at a PP facility in Chicago on July 20, 2012. Pro-life groups were upset that the punishment did not go far enough.

Planned Parenthood Says It’s Proud to Provide Abortions; Reacts to Study Claiming Abortions Are at All-Time Low Since 1973 BY MELISSA BARNHART, CP REPORTER

Reacting to a report from the Guttmacher Institute that claims abortions are at an all-time low since the procedure became legal in 1973, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards says she’s “proud” that the organization provides multiple forms of abortion services to its pregnant clients.

“Planned Parenthood is proud to provide abortion services for women who make the deeply personal decision to end a pregnancy, [and] we are proud to fight for a woman’s right to make that decision without interference from politicians,” said Richards, who once served as deputy chief of staff for House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, and is the daughter of former Democratic governor of Texas Ann Richards.

The Christian Post recently reported that the Guttmacher Institute, a research institute that supports abortion rights, will release a report in March in which it claims that the number of abortions had dropped in 2011 to its lowest point since 1973.

According to the Guttmacher Institute study, between 2011 and 2008, abortions declined by 13 percent; and there were about 1.06 million abortions in 2011, as compared to roughly 1.2 million in 2008.

The abortion rate dropped to 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44 in 2011, down from 29.3 in 1981. It’s the lowest since 1973 when the rate was 16.3, says the study.

The study also notes that about 239,400 abortions entailing early medication procedures were performed in 2011, representing 23 percent of all non-hospital abortions, an increase from 17 percent in 2008.

Michael J. New, an assistant professor at the University of Michigan–Dearborn and an associate scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, believes the Guttmacher study cannot be trusted as being completely accurate.

New wrote in National Review Online that “21 percent of abortion facilities refuse to take part in the survey. And he added that the study doesn’t “provide any information about the percentage of abortions that occur after 20 weeks gestation.”

Richards of Planned Parenthood claims that one reason for the decline in suction, cutting and evacuation methods of abortion can be attributed to the increasing number of women who seek out abortions early enough to have a medication-induced abortion.

“One important finding in this report is that women who do decide to end a pregnancy are increasingly using medication abortion…,” said Richards, who’s fighting a Texas law that passed in July that requires abortionists to be present, in-office, each time abortion-inducing drugs are dispensed to their clients.

According to Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that are fighting these new state regulations, it’s safer for women to ingest abortion inducing drugs at home, and pass and dispose of the aborted baby by themselves, rather than have the assistance of abortionists and their staff who are required to properly dispose of aborted remains.

The Texas law that was passed in July bans abortion at 20 weeks gestation (except in cases where the mother faces a medical emergency), requires abortionists to follow FDA guidelines for dispensing abortion-inducing drugs, and requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital located within 30 miles in cases of emergency caused by the procedure.

In November Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union and other pro-abortion groups appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to reinstate a Texas district court’s injunction that blocked a portion of the law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, citing that it would close a majority of abortion clinics in the state and block women’s access to abortion.

The appeal was filed with Justice Antonin Scalia, who referred the issue to the nine-member court, which in a 5-4 decision, allowed Texas’ abortion regulations to stand. The majority of the court found that Planned Parenthood, et. al., had not met the requirement for setting aside the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ order permitting the law to take effect.

Subseqently, the case was argued in January before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, La., which is reviewing the portion of the law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital located within 30 miles of the abortion facility where they practice.

Pro-life legislation passes in the House

Last month, one week after the anniversary of the controversial Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a sweeping pro-life bill.

Known as HR 7 or the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” the House voted 227 to 188 in favor of the proposed legislation. HR 7 has multiple components to it that focus on removing government funding of abortion and benefits for abortion coverage.

Introduced by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), HR 7’s aims bear resemblance to the Hyde Amendment, which gets renewed every session by Congress. Smith’s goal with HR 7 is to make the Hyde Amendment provisions permanent and no longer in need of annual renewal.

In August, the Government Accountability Office also announced that it would be investigating Planned Parenthood’s use of taxpayers’ dollars amid recent cases against abortion providers who’ve fraudulently over-billed Medicaid and other family planning programs.

This decision was made after a group of more than 50 members of Congress, including Reps. Diane Black (R-Tenn.), Pete Olson (R-Texas) and Senator David Vitter (R-La.), requested a report from the GAO on how taxpayer funding is specifically used by Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform abortions.

“Planned Parenthood performed a record 333,964 abortions last year – almost 1 million in the past three years,” Vitter said last February. “At the same time, they also received more federal taxpayer dollars than ever before – a record $542 million, an 11 percent increase over the past two years. Planned Parenthood and other organizations that provide abortions clearly benefit from Uncle Sam, but there’s no accounting to prove how they actually use that money. This GAO report would shine a light on how our tax dollars are being spent.”

Michael J. Norton, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, which has filed lawsuits against Planned Parenthood, told CP that the organization has, during the past few years, released reports to Congress that have identified waste, abuse and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood, state family programs and other organizations, as well as potential fraud by Planned Parenthood affiliates relating to grants from Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“We have been focusing on Planned Parenthood’s waste, abuse and potential fraud, and to identify Planned Parenthood as significantly taking advantage of well-funded, poorly addressed family planning programs in particular,” Norton said. “Audits and other reviews of Planned Parenthood affiliates’ financial data and practices – as well as 45 audits of state family planning programs and one audit of a family planning organization – found more than $108 million in waste, abuse and potential fraud. Taxpayer money is only supposed to be used responsibly and for the common good.”

Gays for Late Term Abortion? by Mike Adams

“Good Afternoon, The semester is off to a busy start, and there are many program [sic] to look forward to this Spring. I wanted to remind you of an event being co-sponsored by SGA, UNCW NARAL and the LGBTQIA Resource Office next week.”

First, note that the student government association, or SGA, is sponsoring this event. It isn’t without cost to the public. This significance of this will be apparent as we read the rest of the email sent by government employees using government resources.

“On Tuesday, January 21, to celebrate the 41st Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, there will be a showing of After Tiller at 7:00 in Lumina Theater. This showing is free and open to the public.”

Note that the event is not free to the public because the taxpayers who attend pay for it with their taxes. Note also that this is not a discussion of Roe v. Wade. It is a “celebration” of Roe v. Wade. One hundred percent of UNCW money dedicated to discussion of abortion is decidedly pro-abortion. No dissenting opinions are ever funded by UNCW. The university has a clear position on abortion. That position is decidedly pro-Roe v. Wade. That is why university officials have lied to crisis pregnancy centers to keep them off the Women’s Resource Center web page in the past – even as they promoted the services of Planned Parenthood, including, but not limited to, the termination of the lives of unborn human beings.

“About the film: After Tiller intimately explores the highly controversial subject of third-trimester abortions in the wake of the 2009 assassination of practitioner Dr. George Tiller. The procedure is now performed by only four doctors in the United States, all former colleagues of Dr. Tiller, who risk their lives every day in the name of their unwavering commitment toward their patients. Directors Martha Shane and Lana Wilson have created a moving and unique look at one of the most incendiary topics of our time, and they’ve done so in an informative, thought-provoking, and compassionate way.”

It’s tough to go on for an entire paragraph with such nonstop moral confusion. In fact, just about everything in the paragraph you just read was either wrong or deeply morally misguided. First of all, third-trimester abortions really aren’t controversial. That is why, overwhelmingly, people reject them as morally unacceptable cold-blooded murder. Nor are the doctors who perform them courageous. It takes no courage to dismember a developed human fetus that is trapped in the womb and can’t fight back. Nor is it “moving” to celebrate child murder. Nor is it “compassionate.” It is simply twisted.

“Reviews: According to the Hollywood Reporter, ‘Whether one is pro-life, pro-choice or without opinion on the issue, After Tiller provides personal insight into a heart-wrenching, complex reality. The film does not pretend to be an answer to the abortion controversy but rather a presentation of the people who are demonized, correctly or incorrectly, for their actions.’”

Interesting, isn’t it? The LGBTQIA Office has included a set of reviews of the pro-abortion film. This one, by the Hollywood Reporter, actually suggests that the film is morally neutral on the issue of late term abortion. It isn’t. This false characterization requires a substantial obfuscation. This is accomplished by characterizing a very simple issue as a “complex reality.” It really isn’t. Regardless of one’s position on early term abortion, most people who are morally developed know that it is wrong to kill a developed human fetus.

“Additionally, Variety states, ‘Martha Shane and Lana Wilson manage a rare feat in After Tiller, making a calm, humanist documentary about a hot-button topic …Well contextualized and sensitively shot with extraordinary access, the pic reflects the personal, moral and ethical struggles of the doctors as well as their patients, and deserves the widest possible audience.'”

Sensitively shot to depict the ethical struggle of the doctor? Does it have a shot of the little one struggling while he (or she) is being torn limb from limb by the “struggling” abortionist? I agree it deserves a wide audience. Too bad 55 million potential viewers have been aborted and won’t be there for the showing.

“And, Movie City News says, ‘A+! A terrific documentary that handles sensitively this controversial and heated topic.'”

Actually, I don’t think the topic is heated at all. It is cold. It is heartless advocacy of cold-blooded murder. And your taxpayer dollars are going to support it. Amy Schlag, Program Coordinator of the LGBTQIA Resource Office and UNCW Instructor of Women’s Studies, left her office public phone number at the bottom of the mass email she sent promoting this event. This number is published publicly on the UNCW web page. Therefore, it is entirely appropriate for pro-lifers to use it to express their concerns. If you call, please be more compassionate than she is. Thankfully, that won’t be difficult.

And, while you’re at it, email UNCW Chancellor Gary Miller Ask him what LGBTQIA stands for. Is it “Leveraging Government Budgets To Quietly Increase Abortion?” If not, then why does the university refuse to fund the other side of the issue?

And, more importantly, ask Gary Miller if anyone employed by the LGBTQIA Resource Office is splitting time working for Planned Parenthood? I already know the answer. I bet you do, too.

…To be continued.

5 Abortion Myths Debunked By Pro-Life Activists BY TYLER O’NEIL , CP REPORTER

UPPER MARLBORO, Maryland — Pro-Life activists addressed five myths which support a culture of abortion at the 2014 Students for Life of America National Conference.

“The principle reason why I am passionate about the pro-life issue is because I believe there’s an empty grave in the Middle East that used to be occupied by Jesus of Nazareth,” Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, declared. Moore added that Jesus “is a former embryo, a former zygote, a former fetus, a former crisis pregnancy who is now the ruler of the entire universe.”

Below are the top 5 myths discussed at the conference. Myth number one was not discussed at the conference because the speaker was snowed in, but he spoke to The Christian Post in an interview on Wednesday.

1. Abortion is needed because of overpopulation

“A lot of people think they are doing the socially responsible thing by not having children,” but they are actually making society poorer as a result, argued Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute (PRI).

Contrary to what most professors tell their students, Mosher declared that “the socially responsible thing is to have children — providing the future consumers, the future producers, and the future taxpayers.” The PRI president argued that if American families had an average of three children, “Social Security would be solvent forever,” and if the 56 million babies aborted since Roe vs. Wade were working in our society, the deficit would be half or less than half what it is now. He also pointed to social science showing that children raised in large families have lower rates of crime, drug use, and premarital sex.

  • “The good book says that babies are a blessing for multiple reasons — for any Christian to believe the opposite is incomprehensible,” Mosher added. Nevertheless, Mosher said population control activists helped legalize abortion, and their ideas still dominate college campuses. He mentioned a population foundation set up by John D. Rockefeller III which suggested legalized abortion and a two-child policy for the United States.

“They think of children as stomachs, and they forget that every stomach has two hands attached,” Mosher explained. “Ever baby killed by abortion makes us all poor.”

2. “Safe Sex” is Safe.

Kevin Bagetta, president of Love Facts, argued that there is no such thing as “safe sex.” He cited statistics showing the contraception does not prevent all pregnancies or Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), and argued that “sexual abstinence is the only way to 100 percent avoid STDs and pregnancy.”

“15 percent of those who use condoms 100 percent of the time still get STDs,” Bagetta declared. He also reported that “21 percent of teen women using contraception will be pregnant within two years.” Begetta suggested the site for more information about the “Risky Life Style” and “STD Roulette” involved in “safe sex.”

While “safe sex” can have these harmful consequences, he argued, a chaste life does not. Abstinence means no STDs, no emotional heartache, no loss of freedom, and no abortion.

3. You need abortion to protect the health of women

Marguerite Duane, associate professor of Family Medicine at Georgetown University, argued that “it is never necessary to have an abortion for a woman’s health.”

As a medical professional, Duane addressed pregnancy situations where some doctors suggest abortion to protect the mother. In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, where the baby grows outside the womb, the professor laid out four options, discussing the morality of each.

The “watch and wait” option, where the doctor monitors the pregnancy and allows a natural miscarriage, is not abortion, and so is acceptable. Two other options – an abortefacient drug and cutting the baby out – are abortion and immoral. But the last option, that of removing the tube in which the embryo grows, is not immoral because it involves removing a diseased organ, not directly attacking the baby.

In this case, however, the surgery is not an abortion, because the goal is to save the mother and the child’s death is only a consequence of helping her. According to the principle of double effect, Duane argued, this sort of procedure is neither abortion nor immoral.

4. Adoption is Worse Than Abortion

Russell Moore declared that “nothing is more contrary to human reason or human compassion” than the argument that it is better for a woman in a crisis pregnancy to abort her child than to make an adoption plan.

The idea that abortion is better than adoption, Moore argued, comes from the myth that abortion erases pregnancy. But rather than erase the reality of pregnancy, “abortion simply deals lethally, cruelly, and mercilessly with one of those two people to leave the other deeply, deeply broken.” Moore emphasized that “those of us who have spent years counseling with, loving, and walking alongside people who deeply regret abortions realize” that abortion carries moral and emotional consequences.

Moore also addressed the stigma of adoption, both for the mother and the adopting parents. While Moore celebrated that the shame in adopting has largely disappeared, he lamented the myth that “making an adoption plan for one’s child is a loss of control or choice.” Instead, he argued, mothers wishing to give their children up for adoption have a great deal of control over who will adopt the baby, and “the act of choosing to give life and a future and a story to her child is an act of heroism.”

5. Abortion could never be made illegal.

“Do you know abortion was illegal?” asked Steve Aden, senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom. He noted that abortion was illegal under English and American common law for 700 years, and it only became legal in his lifetime. Rather than asking “can you really make abortion illegal?” Aden said people should ask “can you really make abortion illegal again?”

Despite over half a billion dollars per year in funding for “big abortion,” Aden explained that the abortion lobby could not pass “the so-called Freedom of Choice Act in 2009,” which would have made “making abortion illegal, illegal.” Aden also praised the state legislatures in 2013 for introducing over 300 abortion restrictions. “Abortion is already against the law in most states for many purposes,” he declared, and “the pro-life movement is already taking abortion down to levels we haven’t seen since the late 1970s.”

In light of this progress, Aden predicted the abortion industry will go extinct, declaring “big abortion is a dinosaur on a leash.”


As winter storms barrage the east coast of the US and a wind chill temperature of minus eight degrees freezes DC, hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates are in the nation’s capitol  for the 41st annual March for Life event on Wednesday.

Today marks the 41st anniversary of Roe v. WadeAlong with its companion Doe v. Bolton, abortion was legalized in all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason, in the United States. Last year, it was estimated that 500,000 pro-life advocates demonstrated against abortion on the 40th anniversary of the crucial supreme court decision. The rallies will be covered on social media outlets, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, using 360 degree cameras for those who want to experience the events online.

On Wednesday, Pope Francis sent out a tweet supporting the pro-life marchers and offering his prayers: “I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable,” he tweeted.

On a day set aside to mourn the sadness, hardship, and pain associated with abortion, President Obama praised Roe v Wade as a great moment in history for women, saying that today, “We reaffirm our steadfast commitment to protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her constitutional right to privacy, including the right to reproductive freedom.  And we resolve to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, support maternal and child health, and continue to build safe and healthy communities for all our children. Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams.”

It is estimated that over 55 million abortions have been performed since 1973, the year it was legalized. If you do the math on those appalling figures, the numbers are deeply disturbing:

1.382 million abortions every year
115,167 abortions every month
26,577 abortions every week
3,786 abortions every day
157 abortions every hour
2.6 abortions every minute

Abortion: It’s More than Stats By: Chris Johnson

January 22nd marks the darkest and most damning anniversary in U.S. History; that day in 2014 marks the 41st year since the American Government legalized the genocide of the most innocent.

Abortion is a frustrating subject to write on.

What can we say that has not been said? What arguments can we make that have not been argued?

We are left quoting statistics of dead children; reciting numbers rather than remembering the names they were never given.

We stare frustrated by graphs showing the public’s opinion on whether it’s ok to violently end a child’s life… provided they are still in the womb.

It’s frustrating because so many tears have been spent and so many hours given to protect the unrealized lives of the future of America and still the body count ticks up.


That is the National Right to Life’s estimated number of babies killed in the womb since 1973 as of last week. The number is higher now.

But that’s not the whole story.

Yes, there are tens of millions of holes in the fabric of America, but there are also many who can say, “I chose to carry my child, because of someone praying for me as I walked into an abortion clinic” or “I knew it would be hard, but I decided to give my baby up to be adopted, because I spoke to someone at an Alpha Women’s Center.” There are many who can say, “my mom gave me life and sacrificed so that I could keep it.”

Abortion is a depressing topic with many horror stories that bring tears to our eyes, but there are also many stories of hope that bring tears of joy to our eyes.

While it’s easy to get bogged down in the slow progress of this, the human rights issue of our day, there are bright spots.

It does seem as if public opinion is swinging our way, as more and more young people are siding against abortion.

Not only that, but every success story is a story of saving a life and that is always a cause for joy.

On the 41st anniversary of Roe v Wade, let us pray fervently that God would put an end to the unspeakable horror of abortion and that it would not have a 42nd anniversary. Let us also pray for guidance on how we can be used in this fight against the greatest of evils.

In looking at one of the “bright spots” in the wake of this devastation, we’d encourage you to watch the movie “I was wrong.”.

“I was wrong.”is a 30 minute documentary which shows the effort that Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe” of Roe v Wade) has put into getting the Supreme Court decision, which bears her “name,” overturned.  This movie shows the ugliness of abortion; but, it also shows the beauty of redemption and the peace of forgiveness that Jesus brings to those who will turn to Him.

We are offering the DVD “I was wrong.” for $10.00 (+ S.H).  You can order it online by clicking here.
