  1. Avoiding the education behind a hate-filled heart

The Story of the Christian-hating liberal and the transgender

DevonEricksonTweet

OneNewsNow provided some insights to the boy who hated Christians.

More details are starting to come out about the two teenage shooters who took a life and injured eight others this week at a Colorado high school, but some details might get dropped from the typical news story.

Just before 2 p.m. on May 7, Devon Erickson (pictured at right) and accomplice Maya McKinney allegedly walked into the Highlands Ranch STEM school with two loaded handguns and began firing before they were tackled.

One well-deserved post-shooting story describes the heroism of Kendrick Castillo (pictured below), an 18-year-old senior who helped tackle Erickson and thus helped end the shooting, paying for his courage with his own life.

Two others joined Castillo in stopping Erickson, and an unnamed private security guard is credited with subduing McKinney, The Associated Press reported.

But what about the two shooters themselves? Are they MAGA hat-wearing white supremacists? NRA members?

And why did they do it? Were they inspired by President Trump? By the tea party? By a Fox News host?

News website The American Conservative, which has been following the shooting, points out Erickson’s white car that was towed from his home was spray-painted with “666” and a Pentagram, and the words “fu– society” were spray-painted on its side.

On his Facebook page, Erickson complained in a 2014 post that he hates “all these Christians who hate gays” for their biblical views.

The same story notes that law enforcement authorities misidentified the accomplice as a male when the “he” is a she who claims to be transgender and is transitioning from “Maya” to “Alec.”

American Conservative writer Rod Dreher then writes:

Watch the coverage over the next few days. It hardly needs saying — but I’m going to say it anyway — that these alleged killers do not represent all gays, allies, or non-Christians, any more than Christians or Muslims who shoot up or bomb places represent all in their religion. But it’s going to be very, very interesting to observe how the media craft this narrative to explain what role the identities these two suspects embraced played in justifying their violent actions.

When I blog, I generally include short comments on the words of main stream media (this way, the main stream media’s words can be used to prove my point). When main stream media refuses (as it increasingly does) to comment on a conservative topic, I use media outlets like Fox, One America News Network, the Christian Broadcasting Network, and similar outlets.

Once again, the American main stream media has largely proven itself lacking in anything but a desire to follow the liberal agenda of the day.

  1. Elderly Pro-Life Woman’s Amazing Christian Response to Attacker Who Broke Her Leg: ‘I’m Forgiving Her’

prolifeprotester_hdv

The Christian Broadcast Network tells in a 10 May 2019 article of a woman who was received a broken leg for protesting abortion.

A 31-year-old woman from Louisville has been charged with second-degree assault after she allegedly shoved an elderly pro-life activist to the ground outside Kentucky’s only abortion clinic.

But the victim, 82-year-old pro-life activist Donna Durning, told the Louisville Courier Journal she has forgiven her alleged attacker, Janaya Alyce Gregory, and is asking others to pray for her.

“I believe that the lady who caused this injury needs prayers,” Durning said, “and I’m forgiving her and I would hope that people would also pray for her.”

Gregory, for her part, pleaded not guilty last week to the incident, which took place April 12 outside the EMW Women’s Surgical Center, according to court documents.

As a result of the assault, Durning sustained a broken femur. She required surgery and rehabilitation in order to recover from the incident. Durning said she is confident “God is watching over me.”

Had this been a Muslim attacked by a someone who once claimed to be a Christian, this would be front page news for a week.

However, with a Christian, older woman having her leg broken by a 31-year-old snowflake, the media gives us crickets.

  1. Pro-Life Activists Rally in Philly to Counter Dem’s Vicious Viral Attack

phillyproliferally3_hdv

After gay, pro-abortion Pennsylvania House member Brian Sims bullied three teen girls and an elderly woman protesting abortion, the Christian Broadcast Network reports in a 10 May 2019 article that pro-life groups have come together to protest his methods.

Pro-life activists rallied in Philadelphia Friday morning in response to a viral video of a Pennsylvania state representative harassing pro-life teens and women.

WATCH the entire rally BELOW:

We are LIVE at our pro-life rally against bullying, calling for the resignation of Brian Sims and for the end of abortion.

Faithwire’s Carly Hoilman was on site for the rally, posting numerous highlights from the event on Twitter:

The rally came together to protest the actions of state Rep. Brian Sims who is seen in viral videos harassing and threatening teenagers and a woman silently praying outside of this particular Planned Parenthood clinic. Sims points his camera at the teens, hoping to expose the identity of these minors, saying: “I’ve got a hundred dollars for anyone who can identify these three.”

In his bullying video, Sims hovers around an older woman, taunting her and trying to shove the camera in her face saying, “Today’s protester, now she is an old white lady who is going to try to avoid showing you her face.”

Sims had triumphantly tweeted his harassment, calling on others to target pro-lifers too: “Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE! They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please”

In another tweet, he blasted pro-lifers as “Bible bullies.”

Since the media wants to portray gays as victims and never bullies, this will never see the light of day. Likewise, the attacks on the teens, the offers to have those teens’ lives ruined (much like the issues the media first tried to impose on the Covington Catholic boys.

  1. Pro-Lifers Pack Street at Philly Planned Parenthood: ‘We Are Not Going to Continue to Be Bullied’

In another article by the Christian Broadcast Network, we find that pro-life groups have a message for Planned Parenthood.

Hundreds of pro-lifers came here Friday to protest a Pennsylvania state representative’s recent verbal attacks against pro-life sidewalk counselors outside a Philadelphia abortion clinic.

As CBN News has reported, state Rep. Brian Sims (D) put out a video of himself blasting a woman who was merely praying a few feet from the Elizabeth Blackwell Planned Parenthood clinic. “An old white lady telling women what to do with their bodies,” he said.

Sims then basically offered a bounty for information on three teenage girls praying at the same clinic.

He called them, “A bunch of pseudo-Christian protestors who’ve been out here shaming young girls for being here. So here’s the deal: I’ve got $100 to anybody who’ll identify any of these three.”

The pro-life advocates who came to this clinic told CBN News they won’t be intimidated or stopped because abortion must be fought.

Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood manager who now helps abortion clinic workers leave their jobs, addressed the rally.

The scandal has toppled Malaysia’s prime minister, threatened Goldman Sachs Group Inc. with criminal charges, and ensnared both Republican and Democratic fundraisers.

  1. One America News lists five other stories

maxresdefault

Liz Wheeler on One America News lists five other stories not mentioned by the main stream media.

  1. No Democrats viewed the mostly-unredacted version of the Mueller report
  2. California State Education has implemented sex education starting with kindergarten that cannot be opted out of and which is graphic at all levels
  3. Ilhan Omar has ties to the Muslim Amereican Society (which published the video of children singing “we will chop head of unbelievers off”).
  4. Trump told of his losing billions during his first episode of The Apprentice
  5. The Planned Parenthood location where Pennsylvania House member Brian Sims bullied three teen girls and an elderly woman for protesting abortion has failed 14 of the past 20 health inspections

This is a sad state of affairs for the media when they cannot report the news for fear of helping conservatives.

A Day of Mourning for Abortion

ActivistMommy

On 6 April 2019, pro-life organizations (including the Activist Mommy, Elizabeth Johnston) call us to a day of mourning for the unborn. Specifically, they call us to fast, pray, and, if you can travel to Richmond, Virginia, join them on the capital steps to of Virginia. At the Facebook page of the Activist Mommy, Elizabeth Johnston, these details are shared:

Richmond, Virginia – where it is a felony to commit animal cruelty, but where the Governor supports cruelty to babies through abortion.😡🙏🏻💔 Richmond is on fire right now! It’s time for revival!! Mourn and repent with us! (2 Chronicles 7:14!!) Visit DayOfMourning.org for your free tickets! #DayOfMourning

To get free tickets to the Richmond, Virgninia event, go to https://www.dayofmourning.org/.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV)

While Virginia approves of child murder after birth, they pass a law making animal cruelty a felony

Virginia to enact ‘Tommie’s Law,’ making animal cruelty a felony

As revealed by this 4 April 2019 Fox News article, the radical left has all sorts of compassion for beings (just as long as they are not newly-born humans).

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam signed into law on Monday a bill that will make animal cruelty a felony in the commonwealth.

Dubbed “Tommie’s Bill,” the legislation is set to change current law — which, according to WWBT, states that those who abuse animals “can only be charged with a misdemeanor unless the animal dies.”

But after the Democratic governor signed the bill into law, animal cruelty will be considered a Class 6 felony, which is punishable by a fine of up to $2,500, and up to five years in prison.

The bill was named after Tommie, a male brindle pit bull who was found tied to a pole after being “covered in accelerant and intentionally lit on fire” in February.

The Shocking Speech Wheaton College Doesn’t Want You to Hear

In a 11 January 2019 Black Community News article, Ryan Bomberger provides perspectives on two speakers at Wheaton College.

This is the tale of two lectures at Wheaton College, a Christian evangelical college in the suburbs of Chicago. One was given in September 2017 and the other in November 2018. Though only a year apart, the responses to the two presentations were universes apart. The reaction is very telling and tragic for those who believe that a Christian education is different than a secular one.

The first speech was given by Dr. George Yancy, a philosophy professor at Emory University (huge thanks to Jamie Dean at World Magazine for excellent article on this and uncovering actual audio recording). It was sponsored by Wheaton’s Philosophy department and held in the esteemed Billy Graham Center on campus. It was entitled: “A Post-Racial America? White Gazes and Black Bodies”. It can only be described as an expletive-laced, pornographic, racist, anti-biblical screed. His theme? “To be white is to be racist.” Listen to these shocking excerpts from that speech here.

There was no backlash from Wheaton’s leadership. There were no letters sent out by any staff or student government leaders denouncing him or raising concerns about the hostile, f-bomb-laden speech. There was only internal praise by the school’s own Wheaton Record.

Then there’s that second speech. Wheaton College Republicans courageously invited me to speak about abortion and race. Keep in mind, there’s never been anyone—ever—to address racism and the abortion industry at Wheaton. In fact, no one has addressed the issue of abortion at their thrice weekly chapels but once (briefly) in many years. Wheaton, founded by slavery abolitionists, doesn’t lead whatsoever on the abolition of abortion. One would think a school that (sort of) espouses a prolife worldview, at least in text on its website (“followers of Jesus Christ will uphold the dignity of human beings, from conception until death…”), would encourage students to put that into action by attending the March for Life Chicago or volunteering at a local pregnancy resource center.

Needless to say, I did not speak in the center named after the school’s most famous alum. But I did speak to a standing-room only audience in another Wheaton lecture hall. My multimedia talk was entitled “Black Lives Matter In and Out of the Womb”; it was an expletive-free, fact-based, statistics-driven, Biblically-rooted, deeply personal and grace-filled discussion on the systemic racism of the abortion industry and the hypocrisy of the pro-abortion #BlackLivesMatter movement. As an adoptee and adoptive father who was conceived in rape, I challenged students to see the most vulnerable, the most marginalized, and the most powerless among us as having equal intrinsic worth and God-given Purpose.

Six days later, I was severely denounced by a campus-wide email sent out by two Wheaton staff members and signed by three student government leaders. My entire message was branded as “offensive rhetoric” that made “many students, staff and faculty of color” feel “unsafe” on their campus. And now, the school has cancelled the College Republicans’ next event, because leadership claims their speaker approval process needs to change so Wheaton students aren’t exposed to such factivism (aka truth) again.

While this shows that at least one Christian college has gone full-bore liberal instead of full-bore Christian, this will not be the first time a faithful Christian and pro-lifer has been discriminated against. For examples, refer to my blog posts in

Since Wheaton College so flagrantly contradicted the examples of the Old Testament and the commands of the New Testament, maybe a review of how Christians must not discriminate racially and must not discriminate among Christians is in order.

Galatians 3:28 tells us that “(t)here is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” In other words, there are no divisions between Christians (no matter the gender, race, or financial status) due to the uniting properties of Jesus Christ. Let me be more clear: Christ makes all Christians into one body. We must not discriminate against the other parts of our own body any more than the mouth should denounce the nose.

In the Old Testament, we receive the example of a leader who did not consider skin tone and a God who stood by his prophet. In Numbers 12:1, we find …”Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman he had married” … In verses 9 and 10, God shows his backing for Moses when we see …”the anger of the Lord burned against them and He departed. But when the cloud had withdrawn from over the tent, behold, Miriam was leprous, as white as snow.” From this, we see that God stood against Miriam’s bigoted disapproval of Moses’ black wife. Not only that — God punished Miriam for her bigotry.

Additionally, Christians are commanded to “(b)e devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor.” We should love other Christians like brothers and put the needs of other Christians over our own. Similar commands can be found in 1 Thessalonians 5:11; John 13:34; Galatians 5:13; Ephesians 4:2 and 32; 1 Peter 4:8; and 1 John 4:7.

An Old Testament example of a man who was devoted to his fellow believers comes to us through Joseph, who — when presented with a chance to get back at people who sold him into slavery and thereby caused him to go to prison — said “you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good” (Genesis 50:20).

Fetal tissue firms in undercover pro-life investigation shutter after $7.8 million settlement

A 12 December 2017 Washington Times article documents how the undercover films of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt have resulted in the shuttering of two fetal tissue firms.

Two California biomedical firms named in an undercover video investigation of the sale of fetal tissue from abortions are shutting down after reaching a $7.8 million settlement with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

As part of the settlement, DV Biologics LLC and sister company DaVinci Biosciences LLC were ordered to cease all operations in California within 60 to 120 days and admit liability for unlawfully selling fetal tissues and cells for profit.

“This settlement seizes all profits from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, which they acquired by viewing body parts as a commodity and illegally selling fetal tissues for valuable consideration,” District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said in a statement. “These companies will never be able to operate again in Orange County or the State of California.”

Prosecutors opened the investigation into the fetal tissue companies in 2015 after undercover videos released by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress showed top Planned Parenthood executives and others in the abortion industry discussing the market for the human remains from abortions.

David Daleiden, CMP project leader, praised prosecutors for shuttering the biomedical firms and called on them to investigate Planned Parenthood’s role in the operation.

Face facts, America, Donald Trump is a success. Let’s count the ways.

USA Today credits President Trump with the following successes in a 20 December 2017 article.

1. Tax cuts: Congress has passed a tax overhaul, but just the anticipation of tax reform, which will cut the corporate rate to 21%, has excited business owners and fueled stock market records.
  
2. Economic growth: The GDP has grown by more than 3% for two quarters in a row.
  
3. Consumer confidence: In October, consumer confidence rose to the highest level in 17 years, according to the New York-based Conference Board.
  
4. Deregulation: Trump has cut 67 Obama-era regulations and added only three new rules. The rollback on regulations has spurred business confidence, economic activity and stock market growth. A senior official said the actions have saved $8.1 billion in lifetime net regulatory costs.
  
5. Stock market: The Dow has set record highs 70 times this year, rising 5,000 points in a year for the first time in history.
  
6. Judicial appointments: Trump has staffed the judiciary with constitutionalists such as Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.
  
7. Unemployment: Granted, Trump inherited low unemployment numbers from President Obama, but the number of people collecting unemployment benefits has continued to fall to a near 44-year low.
  
8. Trade: Trump worked out a trade deal with China, Vietnam and South Korea.
  
9. Israel: The United States’ relationship with Israel has been much improved since the last administration.
  
10. Immigration: In August, illegal border crossing apprehensions were down 41% on the southern border compared to August 2016.
  
11. U.S. energy: The Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines are under construction. Jobs to be created: 42,000.
  
12. Coal: Trump stopped Obama’s war on coal.
  
13. Climate Change: Trump announced in June that he plans to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, citing that it would undermine our economy.
  
14. Schools: Trump is giving the green light to school-choice programs across the country.
  
15. Obamacare Fail: Congress failed to ‘repeal and replace’ the Affordable Care Act, but if the tax reform bill is passed, Obamacare’s individual mandate will be repealed.
  

President Trump appoints and has confirmed a record number of appeals court nominees

Time reports in a 15 December 2017 article how Trump has outpaced Obama in the appointment of appeals court appointees.

President Trump likes to tout his appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court as one of his main accomplishments in his first year in office. But he broke an important record Thursday that proves he also stands to have a major effect on lower courts.

As of Thursday, Trump set a record for the most ever federal appeals judges confirmed during the first year of a presidency, Axios reports. Trump has successfully appointed 12 so far; President Barack Obama confirmed just three in his first year, and President George W. Bush confirmed six. He beat out presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy, who each confirmed 11.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Republican head of the Judiciary Committee, cheered the historic milestone on Twitter Thursday:

The Trump Administration struggled to make good on many legislative and policy pledges in 2017, including repealing the Affordable Care Act and building a border wall, but the swift confirmation of conservative judges marks a promise well-kept to Republican voters. “President Trump has delivered on this issue, which was one of the primary reasons they voted for him,” Penny Nance, president of the socially conservative Christian group Concerned Women for America, said in a statement.

Good news on New Mexico’s abortion front

OneNewsNow reports in a 14 December 2017 article how the New Mexico government will have to uphold the rights of Americans as a probe into abortionaries proceeds.

Amid a federal criminal investigation into a segment of the abortion industry, a New Mexico pro-life group contends upholding the law is far more important than political correctness.

New Mexico Alliance for Life, headed by Elisa Martinez, has been able to confirm through the offices of Congressman Steve Pierce (R-New Mexico) and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) that two New Mexico entities are targets of a federal probe.

“The University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options are under criminal investigation by the FBI,” states Martinez, “for the practices of illicit harvesting of infant body parts and unlawful consent forms that were given to women in order to obtain those body parts.”

In 2016, the U.S. House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives forwarded information on possible criminal charges to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas. And though there have been no indictments in the past year, Martinez contends there is a vital issue at stake.

“It’s extremely important that the rule of law is upheld.” declares Martinez. “No one is above the law, but a lot of folks from the other aisle are quick to defend anything that has to do with the abortion industry.”

Judge rejects restraining order against Tastries Bakery in lawsuit over owner’s refusal to bake same-sex wedding cakes

The Bakersfield Californian reports in a 14 December 2017 article how Kern County Superior Court Judge ruled in favor of a Christian cake maker.

Kern County Superior Court Judge David Lampe denied the state of California a temporary restraining order against a local bakery that refuses to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples.

Lampe ruled Thursday that he didn’t have enough information to make the call.

But the case is scheduled to come back to Lampe on Feb. 2 at a hearing in which Tastries Bakery could be ordered to either make wedding cakes for members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Questioning community — or stop making wedding cakes altogether.

According to court records, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing petitioned the court to issue a restraining order against Tastries and owner Cathy Miller, prohibiting her from denying service to same-sex couples, as is her practice.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
Daniel Piedra, executive director of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, which is defending Miller, said the government sought the temporary restraining order to force Miller into a tough position.

It would have required her to either make wedding cakes for LGTBQ couples or to not make wedding cakes for anyone, he said.

Piedra said Miller has been required to respond to the state with detailed personal and employment information that answers 40 questions.

Judge Lampe, he said, wants to see those answers before he rules on the restraining order.

The judge, Piedra said, felt both sides had important rights that must be seriously considered prior to taking any action.

According to a press release from the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, “the government wanted a court order to compel Miller to create wedding cakes for LGBT persons even though doing so would violate her sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Charles LiMandri, president and chief counsel for the organization, said in the press release the case was an assault on Christians and accused the state of using surprise tactics to get the court to approve the restraining order.

The case first came about in August when Miller personally refused to make a wedding cake for Eileen and Mireya Rodriguez-Del Rio, the couple said, and their concerns, expressed on social media, triggered a firestorm of debate locally.

One other same-sex couple also said they were denied a wedding cake by Miller.

Miller, at the time, said she loves all people.

But, she said, “My conscience doesn’t allow me to participate in certain activities that are contrary to my biblical beliefs. I pray that we can all come to an understanding so that we can continue to get along.”

While this will find challenges in other courts, this is good. As a conservative, I wouldn’t want a gay man to be forced to print t-shirts for the Westboro Baptist Church. On the same note, Christians that object to participating in gay events should not be forced to be part of those events. Don’t be fooled, photographers and bakers have to participate in the event if they provide their product to the event.

Media Silent (Part 2)


Pelosi would like to have the Democrat party work both ways on the pro-life/pro-abortion debate,
but the pro-abortionists won’t have it.

Media Silent on Democrats Departing from the Pro-Abortion Orthodoxy

As reported in a 31 July 2017 Daily Caller article, Nancy Pelosi may be facing a fight over a commitment made by the Party.

The Democratic party is facing a revolt from the left after the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman said the party would back pro-life candidates in 2018.

The DCCC chairman, Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, told The Hill that there will not be “a litmus test” for candidates on the subject of abortion. Lujan’s comments come as Democrats attempt to rebuild a broken party that has hemorrhaged elected offices on both the state and national level.

Lujan’s comments sparked immediate outrage from left-wingers.

“I’m afraid I’ll be with holding support for the DCCC if this is true,” said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, whose name was briefly floated this year as a candidate for DNC chair.

“What better strategy than to betray their base and reaffirm that women’s basic rights are negotiable and disposable,” said prominent liberal columnist Jill Filipovic.

“Reducing the rights of those with child-bearing capacity to a mere matter of opinion is utterly unconscionable,” declared New Republic writer Rachel Cote. She added: “The Democratic Party is in fact saying that there’s ‘no litmus test’ regarding their colleagues’ support of basic bodily autonomy. Terrible.”

“This is a betrayal of every woman who has ever supported the Democratic party,” said liberal journalist Lauren Duca, whose work Hillary Clinton has personally praised.

Renee Sherman, a board member of the pro-choice group NARAL Pro-Choice America, called Lujan out by name on Twitter for not kicking pro-life candidates out of the party.

“I had an abortion. I’d love to chat with you about why my healthcare access is up for debate to win elections. Let’s talk,” said Sherman. She added: “I understand not everyone supports abortion, but you don’t have to put party money behind candidates who will take access away.”

With the Democrat’s “new message” about a “Better Deal,” seems like that message is just lipstick on a pig. As much as I would like to see a pro-life Democrat candidate, the money flowing from Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood-affiliated seems to have gagged the Democrat party.

Tiara Brooke Lycans

Media Silent on Lesbian Trying to Silence a Christian Judge

A 29 July 2017 New York Daily News article provides witness to anti-Christian bigotry of the Left.

A Christian judge has twice declined to recuse himself from a divorce case, after a lesbian mother filed motions citing his stance against homosexuality.

Tiara Brooke Lycans also petitioned the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals, which denied her request for recusal Thursday.

She also argued that Bell, a political conservative and member of the Baptist church, “publicly expressed belief that homosexual relationships and marriages are contrary to God’s Law” — a stance she believes could influence his ruling on the custody of her child with husband, Zachary Lycans, court documents show, Al.com reported.

Judge Bell has, in his initial pending ruling on custody, granted the Lycans joint physical custody of their child alternating weekly. The appeals court noted that he had ruled the same way in two other divorce cases involving lesbian mothers.

If she can find proof that this judge has ruled in ways that would shift power from the powerless, then she should speak out. Otherwise, she is just posturing for the court.

Media Silent on Trump Successes

Although the press has made scattered notes of Trump’s successes (each linked below), they uniformly avoid puling together a list of his successes like the one that follows.

Thanks to the American Family Association, Investor’s Business Daily commentaries on 29 April 2017 and 7 August 2017, and the White House web page for his 100-day event.

Euthanasia


First the doctor added a depressant to the woman’s coffee.

Dutch doctor asked the family to hold grandma down as she begged not to die

The Netherlands has always been at the forefront of the anti-life agenda; however, one recent account shared through the Daily Mail provides some insight as to why the Dutch have started to turn from euthanasia (also known as mercy killing or assisted suicide).

“In the latest controversial incident the unnamed woman, who was over 80, reportedly suffered from dementia and had earlier expressed a desire for euthanasia when she deemed that ‘the time was right’.

As her situation deteriorated, it became difficult for her husband to care for her, and she was placed in a nursing home.

Medical paperwork showed that she often exhibited signs of fear and anger, and would wander around the building at nights. The nursing home senior doctor was of the opinion that she was suffering intolerably, but that she was no longer in a position where she could confirm that the time was now right for the euthanasia to go ahead.

However the doctor was of the opinion that the woman’s circumstances made it clear that the time was now right.

The doctor secretly placed a soporific in her coffee to calm her, and then had started to give her a lethal injection.

Yet while injecting the woman she woke up, and fought the doctor. The paperwork showed that the only way the doctor could complete the injection was by getting family members to help restrain her.

It also revealed that the patient said several times ‘I don’t want to die’ in the days before she was put to death, and that the doctor had not spoken to her about what was planned because she did not want to cause unnecessary extra distress. She also did not tell her about what was in her coffee as it was also likely to cause further disruptions to the planned euthanasia process.

The Review Committee concluded that the doctor ‘has crossed the line’ by giving her the first sleeping medicine, and also should have stopped when the woman resisted. The paperwork and the recommendations of the committee are now being considered by prosecutors and health officials.

Kohnstamm said he was in favour of a trial: ‘Not to punish the doctor, who acted in good faith and did what she had to do, but to get judicial clarity over what powers a doctor has when it comes to the euthanasia of patients suffering from severe dementia.’ “

To me, this seems like an excessive case of “God syndrome” on the part of that female doctor.

Europe Dives More Deeply into the Euthanasia Issue

In a 29 Sepbember 2016 OneNewsNow article the counter-intuitive trend of Europeans favoring euthanasia among its young came to light.

“There is more proof emerging from Europe that euthanasia, once legalized, will get out of hand.

The focus is on the Netherlands, where some lawmakers and members of the medical profession want to expand the age limit of children who qualify for euthanasia.

Alex Schadenberg of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition says current Dutch law states that euthanasia can be performed on children ages 12 to 16 with permission of the parents or if the child is ruled to be incompetent.

‘After (age) 16,’ he says, ‘the child just has to be deemed competent like anybody else.’

In addition, parents can have a child killed up to its first birthday. That’s also current law.

What euthanasia proponents want to do is to legalize it for children from age two through 12, believing many children may be fully aware of the consequences of a lethal injection:

‘And the belief,’ Schadenberg warns, ‘is that it’s sort of like a natural progression while you’ve allowed euthanasia.’

What the euthanasia proponents do is, he tells OneNewsNow, is convince the public to allow it, with strict guidelines. Then as it becomes more accepted in society, broaden the range of people who qualify, including children, or perhaps just those who are tired of living.

The only way to stop it, says the pro-life activist, is to not legalize it in the first place.”

I call this movement toward promoting euthanasia among the young as a “counter-intuitive” move because:

  • We must give our young every reason to live, not die.
  • We need to reinforce the value of all lives (from the womb to people in the inner city to old age)
    • We need to let the young know that their baby deserves life (even if the mom must send the baby to adoption)
    • We must work against the live-for-the-moment culture of the inner city where loose living and early deaths predominate
    • We must look out for the old who have become a burden to their children and just a cost to the government
  • We must provide hope provided by a gracious and giving God that provides in ways that are beyond the salvation-by-works plans of this world

Child euthanasia starts in Belgium

Belgium performed its first child euthanasia on a terminally-ill minor in September 2016 as reported by CTV News.

“A terminally ill minor has been helped to die in Belgium for the first time since the country did away with age restrictions on euthanasia two years ago, according to the senator who wrote the law.

Liberal Senator Jean-Jacques De Gucht confirmed the death of the sick juvenile to The Associated Press Saturday.

He said the minor was from Belgium’s Flemish region, but declined to provide any further details about the patient to protect the privacy of the grieving family.

Belgium is the only country that allows minors of any age assistance in dying, De Gucht said. In Holland, the lower age limit for euthanasia is 12 years.

‘It’s terrible when a youngster suffers, but it gives me some comfort to know that now there is a choice out there for children in the final terminal stages,’ De Gucht said. ‘It’s important that society doesn’t neglect people in such pain.’

The Belgian law has very strict rules for the euthanasia to be approved. It requires the minor to be in the final stages of a terminal illness, to understand the difference between life and death rationally and to have asked to end his or her life on repeated occasions. It also requires parental consent and finally the approval of two doctors, including a psychiatrist.

The law — one of the most far-reaching in the Western world — had wide public support when it was introduced in 2014, but was opposed by some pediatricians and the country’s Roman Catholic clergy.

Catholic teaching forbids euthanasia and the president of the Italian bishops conference on Saturday described the news of the euthanasia of a child as painful and worrisome.

‘It pains us as Christians but it also pains us as persons,’ Genoa Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco told Italian news agency ANSA.”

Words from the Light of Life

To show how important life is to God, His Son said these things:

Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. (John 14:6 NASB)

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, (John 11:25 NASB)

In order that we might know where life originates, these verses in Revelation tell us of the river of life flowing from the throne of God.

Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:1-5 NASB)

Just as God the Father give laws on life and God the Son identify himself as “the resurrection and the life,” but we also know that the Spirit gives life.

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. (John 6:63 NASB)

From the beginning, the choice has been ours.  We can choose life or death.  Choose life.

See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them. (Deuteronomy 30:15-20 NASB)
