the two-edged sword

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 05, 2007

Great days for ecumenism: today we're all the spiritual beneficiaries of joint efforts for justice.

Remember the liberal Christians' rallying cry from the 1960s: "Practice unites, dogma divides"? Well those wonderful folks at the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice are helping enlist the voice of faith in support of the new abortion clinic in Aurora, Illinois:

Dear Planned Parenthood Friends, I am a person of faith, and I stand proudly next to you in support of opening the new Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora. I believe women and families must be able to make reproductive health decisions according to their own religious beliefs and conscience and Planned Parenthood enables them to do that. The people trying to prevent the opening of the clinic are intent on the opposite -- imposing their beliefs on us all, no matter the harm they cause. Your programs and services are needed by women and families, and your cause is just. Please know I am with you.

Practice unites. Dogma divides.

    Thank God for dogma, then. I sure don't want to be united to the practice.

    What a profound statement! Imagine, a person of faith! Well so were the supporters of the Third Reich extermination camps, the Soviet communist butcheries, the Maoist genocidists--and all with blood dripping from their hands just like the abortionists at Planned Parenthood and other temples of doom. They all had faith in the the relativistic "ethics" of these Satanic social movements. Person of faith, my a..! Tell that to the slaughtered unborn infants when to get in front of your real Judge!

    "person of faith".... of what kind? Certainly not the Biblical kind wherein we are informed that we shall not commit murder - which in the Hebrew translates roughly as "Thou shalt not rend another to pieces." I guess if you poison them with saline and deliver them whole, and refuse to see them as something 'alive', you *technically* aren't in violation of that command..... Although it begs the question - How can you poison/rend something that isn't alive?
