Obama doesn’t weep for all



Published: Mon, December 17, 2012 @ 12:00 a.m.

Obama doesn’t weep for all

An excerpt from USA TODAY, Dec. 14: “‘Our hearts are broken today,’ Obama said at the White House, pausing at times to gather himself and brush back tears.

“Fighting back more tears, Obama — a father of two daughters — pointed out that most of the victims were ‘beautiful little kids’ from the ages of 5 to 10, and ‘had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.’” These are very caring and emotional words from our president.

Let us pray that President Obama will be so moved by the tragic killing of 20 defenseless little children Friday in Connecticut, that he will rethink his position on abortion, the killing of America’s defenseless little unborn children.

There have been 55,808,387 of America’s babies lost to abortion in the last 40 years since the Supreme Court legalized abortion on Jan. 22, 1973. They were not killed by bullets but by “choice.” Not killed in a public place where TV cameras and reporters gather to tell us about their tragic deaths, but in government-funded killing centers which legally for profit kill over 3,300 every day. Sadly, President Obama has no tears for the lives of these babies. He voted twice against providing them medical treatment in case they accidently survived an abortion.

Like the children killed in Connecticut, America’s aborted unborn children are also “beautiful little kids” who “had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.”

Our hearts are broken today and everyday. America, mourn your babies.

Nice that you can find the time to get a political stab in at a time of a national tragedy. You are deplorable.

Former....

Didn't the president inject politics when he addressed the nation Sunday night at the memorial service?

Diane,

A timely letter that expresses a sentiment brought up in my own home after last Friday's tragedy.

What can we do about it?

Besides praying, which is an excellent way to combat abortion, we need to bring the pro-life message to the forefront of American politics. It has been "lost" in the media's romantic obsession with the liberal agenda.

But abortion isn't the only front in this war for America's soul - we need to combat gay marriage, militant atheism, mercy killing and the general de-Christianization of our society.

Religion is attacked, as if IT was evil and hedonism is exalted. Animals are raised to the level of humans, and the worship of things dominates all our thoughts.

Secularism has become today's religion - and with it the dehumanization of our general culture.

Like in Orwell's "1984," we have institutionalized the culture of death as the pinnacle of freedom. Abortion and euthanasia evidence a general disregard for the value of human life.

Atheism has become the latest "thing" that trumps traditional religious public expression.

I heard Obama's speech last night - and he mentioned God more times than I remember in the rest of his God-less presidency.

He epitomizes today's widely held opinions that diminish faith, belief, and trust in a Supreme Being.

For Obama, it is no longer "One nation under God." It is "One nation under Obama," and his totalitarian regime.

I don't know if Obama is the Antichrist, but I sincerely believe that he is a punishment, a scourge, for our sins.

Pray... yes! But we must also bring Jesus into the world by deliberate advocacy for pro-life, profamily, PRO-AMERICAN values!

Thank God for pro-life groups such as yours!

I;m quite sure then that you would be willing to pay all of the medical expenses for this child and financially support this child throughout his/her childhood? And since you're pro-life you must surely be against sending our young men and women to war?

Adnil,

To expect pro-lifers to pay for the expenses of born unwanted children is a red-herring argument.

You would then conclude, I assume, under your logic - that pro-lifers should be responsible for destitute, ill, elderly people on medicaid.

Unwanted children are a societal problem and the costs should be born collectively by our society.

Ulistenup--nothing but a broken record spouting his same outdated, beliefs. What a sad life you must live.

GoPens,

A pro-life position, my friend, is not outdated. Abortion and the accompanying culture of death are the biggest problems facing our once great country.

If you think about it, the fact that we've lost over 50 million people since Roe v. Wade is the reason for all our economic problems. Also, Social Security and Medicare are in trouble primarily because of our puny or zero population growth in this country.

Notice that we didn't start having population-induced problems until Roe v. Wade.

I don't know what belief system you embrace, but if it includes a pro-abortion stance, really..., YOU are the one to feel sorry for!

Ulistenup. You lose all credibility when you suggest that President Obama is the anti-Christ and that he is a scourge and a punishment for our sins. You belong to the same class of nut jobs who say hurricanes are punishments from God where they cause devastation and your rantings put you in the same class as the despicable Westboro Baptist "Church" who show up at military funerals happy that soldiers have died because God is punishing us for allowing homosexuality.

Your ramblings make absolutely no sense and with each post you make you convince more and more people that you are crazy. If that's your goal, congratulations. You have succeeded. As I said earlier, get out of the Old Testament.and try reading the New.

By the way, were you this outraged when W. Bush was president and nothing was done about abortion? I thought not.

Wow, Ms. Marcella, you penned that letter to the editor in record time. Did you even pause to think about those massacred on Friday?

I don't agree with your letter. Believe it or not I do respect your position.

What I do know is that this was not the time for your platform. The timing of your letter was in the poorest of taste. And this was not how to get people to "hear" you. Quite frankly, you downright blew it.

GoPens,

If all you can do is personally attack ulistenup in response to his/her arguments, save your trolling for another web site.

Maxi,

This letter was written at exactly the right time. You see - life is a continuum. It is wrong to kill children in the womb, after a failed abortion, or when they are 6 or 7. And I don't believe you respect Diane's position without respecting the letter itself. You must be a pro-abort, atheist, former Catholic, or all of the above.

Dwight,

Diane NAILED the issue exactly!

gdog,

The nicest thing I can say about you is that you are disgusting.

blah,

Pro-birth is a sub-category of pro-life. If this is meant to be a criticism, I miss your point.

Great letter, Diane!

Paulparks,
Not trolling,just pointing out the dangerous views of crackpots to the sane. We must be aware that there are nut jobs like ulistenup and the letter writer who would turn this country into a theocracy.

By the way, nice personal attack on gdog. Pot meet kettle.

Unfortunately, the letter writer and those that agree with her cant see the forest thru the trees. I have used the same argument as Blah in other posts. Most Pro-Lifer's are just Pro-Birth. Make the person have the baby, but dont fund any after care because that is wasteful government spending. Make an 18yo go on foodstamps or welfare to feed 2 instead of just care for themselves. In that same forest comes contraception availability and sex education in the schools. Let's not teach them how to prevent pregnancies, let's not let them have protection to stop pregnancies, lets just make them have the baby that is unwanted and burden to the state.

Also Ulistenup obviously cannot follow logic if he believes there is a correlation between caring for unwanted babies and the elderly or poor, etc. Those people already were born if you can see that logic. The babies you dont want to have to take care of are not yet.

To be frank, the real Pro-life people are the one's that support abortion. Of course we want the baby to survive in a loving home, but we know if that is not always possible, and the person who is responsible for that baby should have the choice for it's future. We will not let that baby start 10 squares back. Have you ever looked up the dictionary for what Planned and Parenthood mean?? It is the act of planning for being a parent. They are there to hopefully give them the options of what can be done if they have the baby, and if that is not a viable option, they do offer the abortions as a very small percentage of their work.

Oh and by the by, those gay people you are trying to vilify.... They are the ones usually adopting the children you just want to be born and put into foster care or orphanages. I would say thank you to them if I were you instead of condemning them. They are really the ones doing God's work.

Religion can be very good for the soul, but let it heal each soul individually and let God sort it out, it's not really your place to do it. Don't judge, lest you be judged...please try to remember that.

why is it that so many pro-lifers are also pro capital punishment? by the way, i am pro-life except when the mothers' life is in danger or in cases of rape or incest. abortion should not be used as a means of birth control or consequences of casual sex. and i am also in favor of the death penalty. but people can't just throw a blanket around these subjects. there has to be distinctions made.

ytown,

"To be frank, the real Pro-life people are the one's that support abortion."

Really...?

I would call them "quality of life people."

Reminds me of Hitler's regime and "a life not worth living."

Executing unborn children for selfish reasons defies common sense, logic, and is the height of immorality.

Abortion is legal and that is the law of the land. Don't like it maybe you should pray it away?

LtMacGowan,

Legal don't always make it right...

B.C...Stoning Adulterers
1600...Burning Witches
1800...Slavery
2012...Abortion, Mercy Killing (of people)

And as far as your mocking "pray it away" comment, have you no fear of God?

Suggest removal:

24LtMacGowan(645 comments)posted 1 year, 10 months ago

Not particularly if there is a god the ones who have something to fear are the ones who blow up Abortion clinics in god's name and such.

If I was god I'd be rather pissed at all the idiots who claim to act in my name.

LtMacGowan,

Ironic how often people who kill others do so "in God's name," when God is the author of life.

Wait a second... God, the author of life?

Who authors abortion and other actions of willful killing? Satan. Or don't you believe in him, either?

Suggest removal:

26LtMacGowan(645 comments)posted 1 year, 10 months ago

No I don't believe in god nor Satan. I believe in Man. We are responsible for our actions and destiny not some supernatural bearded being wearing a toga.

The only thing we can do with our lives is try and be the best human being we can.

If I were to live a good life and been kind, charitable, and moral to my fellow man (Yes one can be Atheist and be moral and ethical) and some how I arrive at the gates of St Peter and get told that because I didn't pray or acknowledge the existence of god, I like millions of Native Americans, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Romans, Greeks, Atheists, etc are not welcome. Well then that's not a place I'd want to go anyways.

While we're on the subject I also believe that mankind has it within ourselves to become "god". I believe that NOTHING is out of reach of humanity given enough time, knowledge, and wisdom.

Look at what we've accomplished in the 20th century that would make our early predecessors think us to be deities. We've eradicated smallpox a disease that has killed more humans than every war in our history combined. We've let the confines of Earth and begin to explore the universe, We've created Synthetic cells that divide and live, we've mapped out the human genome. Imagine what we can accomplish in another 2,000 years.

That is as long as we aren't dragged back into another 700 year long Religious inspired Dark Age where knowledge was Anathema.

Smallpox eradicated? You had better do some research. The virus is alive and well in a government vault. It could be unleashed upon mankind whenever they see fit.

"In 2011, the World Health Organization will recommend the fate of existing smallpox stockpiles, but circumstances have changed since the complete destruction of these cultures was first proposed. Recent studies suggest that variola and its experimental surrogate, vaccinia, have a remarkable ability to modify the human immune response through complex mechanisms that scientists are only just beginning to unravel. Further study that might require intact virus is essential. Moreover, modern science now has the capability to recreate smallpox or a smallpox-like organism in the laboratory in addition to the risk of nature re-creating it as it did once before. These factors strongly suggest that relegating smallpox to the autoclave of extinction would be ill advised."

LtMacGowan,

You sound like an intelligent fellow, why the negative attitude towards God? Where did your belief system come from? Did you used to believe in God? What changed your mind?

It would be nice to sit down with you over a cup of coffee and discuss these things.

God created everyone, including atheists and He has a plan of salvation for all.

Some non-believers become the greatest proponents of the faith after they convert. I hope this happens to you.

Faith is a gift. I pray you receive the gift of faith during this holy season.

Officially Smallpox has been eradicated in the wild. The only 2 confirmed samples are held by USAMRIID and the Russian inheritor of BIOPREPARAT both of which are in BSL-4 containment.
