The Merciful Media

Over the past 24 hours, various pro-life organizations and religious leaders have publicly denounced the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller.  It is almost as if these groups and individuals believe that they can lessen the impact of some of the negative, even hateful media attention.  It won’t work folks.  In fact, it will just make things worse.  As pro-lifers we need to reject the very premise that we are prone to violence.  We should not have to defend ourselves.  Our peaceful nature should be a given.  It is kind of like when we defend ourselves from charges of ‘homophobia’ by saying that we have gay friends.  We know that we are not hateful, and if the kool aid drinkers in the media don’t get it, well too damn bad.  We need to stop throwing ourselves at the mercy of the media.  They will never be on our side.

  1. Certainly the murder of George Tiller was a tragedy.

    But I would like to know why the heck he was an usher at a Lutheran church? Hello? Anybody home? What kind of church is that?

  2. Probably the similar kind of chuch Barack Obama was a member of for over 20 years. Next he will proclaim national abortion day. This is the kind of liberal-minded press release we can expect from the Obama WHITE HOUSE.

    For Immediate Release June 1, 2009

    LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009
    – – – – – – –
    BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
    A PROCLAMATION

    Forty years ago, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted police harassment that had become all too common for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT rights movement in America was born. During LGBT Pride Month, we commemorate the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.

    LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of American society. There are many well-respected LGBT leaders in all professional fields, including the arts and business communities. LGBT Americans also mobilized the Nation to respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and have played a vital role in broadening this country’s response to the HIV pandemic.

    Due in no small part to the determination and dedication of the LGBT rights movement, more LGBT Americans are living their lives openly today than ever before. I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration. These individuals embody the best qualities we seek in public servants, and across my Administration — in both the White House and the Federal agencies — openly LGBT employees are doing their jobs with distinction and professionalism.

    The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress, but there is more work to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect.

    My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. These measures include enhancing hate crimes laws, supporting civil unions and Federal rights for LGBT couples, outlawing discrimination in the workplace, ensuring adoption rights, and ending the existing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security. We must also commit ourselves to fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic by both reducing the number of HIV infections and providing care and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS across the United States.

    These issues affect not only the LGBT community, but also our entire Nation. As long as the promise of equality for all remains unfulfilled, all Americans are affected. If we can work together to advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every American will benefit. During LGBT Pride Month, I call upon the LGBT community, the Congress, and the American people to work together to promote equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.

    BARACK OBAMA

  3. Yes Stephen, you have the right to ask what kind of church is that. It is an embarrassment. Lutherans are clearly divided down the middle, as there are basically two totally different Lutherans. One group very much pro-life and conservative and the other Lutheran group very liberal. It is the latter group that would accept an abortionist in their midst.

    But before you bring out the hell fires, let me remind you of story that happened in Montreal in 2005. The national pro-life conference was slated to be held at the Oratory, hosted by the Holy Cross Fathers. If you are familiar with the rest of the story, it was the Holy Cross Fathers who reneged on their promise to host the event. This caused a great deal of constellation on the part of organizers, who were left without a place to hold the national conference. Might I add the H.C. Fathers did this the day before the conference was to be held. But salvation came in the form of a small evangelical church who openly invited the pro-lifers to use their building.

    So Stephen you see there are Judas’s in every denomination, and there are the true Peters in these same denominations. We must recognize who these Judas’s are, and deal with them accordingly. And the most important service is to recognize the Peters in others. This is the greatest service to Jesus.
