Planned Barrenhood videos having an effect? Plus opposition to sodo-marriage mounts August 13, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, disaster, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, manhood, paganism, persecution, scandals, secularism, sexual depravity, Society, The End.
A long-time self-described pro-abort (and I’ve read this guy’s stuff before, he certainly has been) is starting to have second thoughts over the Planned Barrenhood expose videos done by the Center for Medical Progress. There is also an interesting admission regarding what it means to be a man, and how this man, as so many others, have failed horribly in that duty:
The only thing I hate more than talking about abortion is writing about it. It’s no accident that, in 2,000 columns over a quarter-century, I have never—ever—written about abortion. I’ve avoided the topic like a root canal.
But that is getting harder to do with the release of what are now five gruesome,albeit edited, undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress depicting doctors and other top officials of Planned Parenthood discussing, and even laughing about, the harvesting of baby organs, as casually as some folks talk about the weather.
It’s jarring to see doctors acting as negotiators as they dicker over the price of a fetal liver, heart, or brain, and then talk about how they meticulously go to the trouble of not crushing the most valuable body parts……..
……As I’ve only realized lately, to be a man, and to declare yourself pro-choice, is to proclaim your neutrality. [BS. It’s to proclaim your cowardice, quite possibly for the prurient reason of pleasing some wacked out feminist] And, as I’ve only recently been willing to admit, even to myself, that’s another name for “wimping out.”
At least that’s how my wife sees it. She’s pro-life, and so she’s been tearing into me every time a new video is released. She’s not buying my argument that, as a man, I have to defer to women and trust them to make their own choices about what to do with their bodies. To her, that’s ridiculous—and cowardly. [Alright, so maybe his doubt is more about his wife. Good for her! Since he’s Hispanic, maybe she’s converting him]
[WARNING: One bad word in following paragraph. Such is our discourse today….]“You can’t stand on the sidelines, especially now that you’ve seen these videos,” she told me recently. “That’s bullshit! These are babies that are being killed. Millions of them. And you need to use your voice to protect them. That’s what a man does. He protects children—his own children, and other children. That’s what it means to be a man.” [How sad that it takes a woman to tell a man what it is to be a man. And there are very few women around who would know what makes a man. I’m not sure there are many more men who do, either. That’s just one effect of divorce+feminism, and male abdication of duty: very few men have even a remote conception of manliness]
I didn’t like the scolding, but I needed to hear it. For those of us who are pro-choice, the Planned Parenthood videos are a game changer. As to whether that means I’ll change my view, I’m not sure. [And he STILL reverts back to cowardice. How are they a “game changer,” if you’re still on the bubble? The hamster wheel is spinning at warp speed trying to come up with new rationalizations?] I’m on the bubble. Ask me in a few weeks, after the release of more videos.
This guy has been a pretty far out pro-abort, though, so if he’s wavering, maybe finally some of this revelation of the reality of abortion is starting to sink in with some people. Prayer is most certainly advised to help this softening of hearts continue.
On another somewhat positive note, a county clerk, claiming that to do otherwise would endanger her immortal soul (so the odds of her being Catholic are about 1:1000), has determined to cease issuing all marriage licenses in her county rather than be compelled to issue any pseudo-same-sex marriage licenses. Note that CNN trotted out the mythical “long-term stable couple” to embarrass and try to discredit this judge, but their very longevity makes it virtually certain they do not reserve their perverse faculties for each other:
A federal court judge has ordered her to start issuing marriage licenses, but she has refused. God bless her. I’m not totally on board with her response – the ultimate response would have been to continue issuing marriage licenses but to refuse to issue them to sodomites – but it’s probably necessary at this stage, legally. We are seeing the first martyrs of the ascendance of the sodomites, and their efforts to drive believing Christians completely from the public square. To my knowledge, none of them are Catholic, because, of course not, for 50 years Catholics – or katholycs – have been taught that the greatest virtue is to go along to get along, never make waves, and be as in-tight with the culture as possible. Our good (ahem) bishops don’t need another headache with some scrupulous Bible-thumping integrist souls making waves against this diabolical culture! Pay and obey, that’s what they want (having long ceased to give a @$%! about prayer).
You will be made to care. You will not be permitted to be quiet or on the sidelines, you will either support this demonic perversion or you will be harassed and persecuted until you do.
So has Bishop John Stowe of Lexington spoken in defense of this woman (once again, it takes a woman to do a man’s job in this country, it seems), or has he meekly suggested that we must “obey the laws of this nation,” no matter how unjust or perverse? After all, the USCCB is into the federal government for billions of dollars every year! Don’t want to upset that gravy train.
Note that one of the men at the center of this imbroglio is no longer looking quite so clean cut as he did a month ago when they first deliberately initiated this controversy:
Pink hair, pierced nose, etc will be right around the corner?
The denizens of Sodom and Gomorrah thought so, right until the moment that they didn’t, to their complete and abject horror.
