As A People The US has Gone Insane

Post by Homer » Mon Jan 04, 2021 7:20 pm

Today I heard the prayer by representative Cleaver at the US House of Representatives close with "Amen and Awomen' after they had changed from he or she to "them", among other gender things. The politically correct crowd has gone completely nuts! Representative Cleaver, who uttered the words, showed his complete ignorance of the meaning of "Amen". It has nothing to do with gender. When congress wants to amend a law will they womend it?

And in the news recently was the case of a California woman charged with murder because her 8 month old baby was stillborn due to her mother's use of meth:

If the mother had simply gone to Planned Parenthood she could have had her baby ripped to pieces in the womb and gone home free, a hero to the pro abortion crowd.

Speaking of abortion, it is estimated Nazi Germany slaughtered 6 million Jews. Since Roe v. Wade it is estimated we have aborted as many as 60
million babies. In God's eyes do you suppose that, as a people, we are better than Nazi Germany?

"Murder" is the deliberate unnecessary killing of a human being. Abortionists argue that the fetus is not a human being.

Man judges a person by his past deeds, and administers penalties for his wrongdoing. God judges a person by his present character, and disciplines him that he may become righteous.

Hi Paidion,

You wrote:

So how does in make sense to charge the woman who used meth with murder? National schizophrenia comes to mind.

To my mind Roe v. Wade is similar to the infamous Dred Scott decision by the Supreme Court.

Makes no sense at all.

Neither does the assertion that the fetus is not a human being. For it is human, and it is a being. It follows that it is a human being.
The abortionist might be convinced by that reasoning that it is a human being, but he would then affirm that it is not a "person" until it has been born.

One could then ask him why it would become a person at the moment of birth and not 5 minutes before? I don't think he would have a rational answer that that question.

It may not even matter. My sister in law a proud socialist once said that the fetus may indeed be a human being but as long as it is in the women's body she has a right to kill it.

Cleaver claimed he knew what "amen" meant but wanted to emphasize the importance of women by doing what he did.

I wonder why women's periods are called menstrual periods rather that womenstrual periods.
