I prefer to avoid these political hot buttons, but noticed an inflammatory piece of false narrative that would insult conspiracy theorists if ascribed to them.
So recently conservatives were criticizing the Obama administration for purchasing a multi-million dollar hotel complex to house undocumented immigrant children. Of course the choice was defended by those who voted for and are now defending him on a daily basis. Yet Michele Bachmann attempts to find bipartisan support for what amounts to a boarding school and gets accused of trying to establish “labor camps” or even “slavery”. This is an absurd misrepresentation of the proposal. In fact, if the frustrated left could get the red out of their vision for even a moment perhaps they’d notice that this is exactly what they claim to want to see from conservatives. “Cooperation.” Yet, how dangerous is that? Give the politicians exactly what they want. Exactly enough rope to hang themselves?
You should be aware that I’m not a fan of either side of the aisle, but I do contend that for every yarn spun by conservatives, liberals manage to make an entire web. I don’t know if it’s because they are more gullible, or a natural consequence of their philosophical nihilism. It remains a matter of fact that liberals tend disproportionately to be anti-intelligent-design. In our next post we’ll discuss why I.D. is a requirement for any philosophical foundation other than nihilism. In the meantime, this post is not just about politics. It’s also about gullibility, misrepresentation, and deceit. All vices of a fallen world.
Muhammad was born into the Quraysh tribe roughly 600 years after Jesus, and as such was dedicated to Hu’bal. Notice a familiar word? Baal. Hubal means “the lord”, Al’ilah means “the god” … the crescent moon is the symbol of Hubal who was the “greatest” of 360 baals worshiped in mecca at the time that Muhammed conquered it. Hubal was the “moon god”, and being the principle god of Muhammad’s tribe would have been called “Al’ilah” because Hubal was their highest deity.
Remember what genesis says about the moon? The lesser light that rules over the darkness. Don’t doubt for a second that Islam is Baal worship. What is fascinating is how the OT is written in such a way as to seemingly describe the baals as a single entity. Yet for all of the authors that refer to Baal worship it would have been clear that there were many baals, nearly as many as there were towns. Could it be that they knew all along that all of those baals represented the same thing? That all of them represented “the lord” (Hu’bal) of darkness?
Thousands of years later, in 630 AD, Islam combines all of the baals into one. Muhammed destroyed all of the images, except Hubal’s – the crescent moon. His new religion contextualizes the OT with the baals, Hubal being the most predominate. Fascinating stuff. Also realize that in reality the moon has no light – no glory – of its own. It is only a reflection of the Sun. Much like Lucifer began as a reflection of God the One and Only.
On the flip side of this interesting bit is the diversity of the Christian Church. It is beginning to resemble polytheism. Not so much because of the changes that different eras bring. We’ve now rejected some very bad theology and that is a good thing. However there are so many of these eras that establish arbitrary ideals and reject a lot of what follows. For instance 325 AD (the council of Nicaea and the canon), 1542 (Martin Luther),1611 (The KJV), the Pentecostal movement, Rob Bell…
The only rock we should build our faith on is Jesus. These other events are just snapshots of that faith and what’s really important to recognize is how many of them really represent getting back to where Jesus had us in the first place. Rather than any new or special revelation, many of these movements represent undoing harmful practices. Any “new” reformation, should really be yet another attempt to get back to what Jesus already gave us.
As Ecclesiastes states, nothing is really new under the sun. Men continue to concoct convenient theologies, religions, and cults. Yet one thing will never change. Jesus is the rock. Jesus is unmovable, no matter the misinterpretations, the red letters are enough to dispel the rumors.
You read that right. Per Judith Jarvis Thomson’s defense of abortion little Cooper Harris’ death is justifiable. After all, if the 22-month old couldn’t unbuckle the car seat he was restrained in, and open the door to get himself out of danger, then he was reliant on his parents. Just like Judith’s violinist, Cooper was dependent… “a parasite”.
So goes the illogic. As the terrible reasoning unfolds you discover more examples. For instance, in the famous story of the violinist…
“You wake up in the morning and find yourself back to back in bed with an unconscious violinist. A famous unconscious violinist. He has been found to have a fatal kidney ailment, and the Society of Music Lovers has canvassed all the available medical records and found that you alone have the right blood type to help. They have therefore kidnapped you, and last night the violinist’s circulatory system was plugged into yours, so that your kidneys can be used to extract poisons from his blood as well as your own. The director of the hospital now tells you, “Look, we’re sorry the Society of Music Lovers did this to you–we would never have permitted it if we had known. But still, they did it, and the violinist is now plugged into you. To unplug you would be to kill him. But never mind, it’s only for nine months. By then he will have recovered from his ailment, and can safely be unplugged from you.” Is it morally incumbent on you to accede to this situation?”
… there are several other problems. For instance, to be an accurate portrayal of an unborn baby, that “fatal kidney ailment” he has, would have been your making in the first place. So perhaps you struck him with your car – it was an accident! – but it must be your fault, as is the case with the unborn child. So Cooper Harris was strapped into his car seat by his father… What if Cooper wasn’t a child? What if he was a grown woman abducted by Ross Harris?
Thomson’s defense obviously applies to that too, as the violinist is certainly no child, and supposedly a stranger. So not only does it justify Ross Harris baking his son in a car, rather than putting him up for adoption as anyone with an ounce of humanity would have done. It also would have justified Harris kidnapping someone and tying them up and leaving them in a hot car… but it does even more than that…
To accurately reflect abortion we must also include not just hot cars, but more accurately dismemberment. That violinist would not be simply detached but would be dismembered alive. In some cases they would be doused with acid before being dismembered.
So if this picture of the child that was tied up and baked to death in his own daddy’s car stirs any emotions in you, realize that everyday thousands of babies just like him are dismembered in their own mommy’s uterus. Why? Because society claims it’s ok. Because society claims that a parent shouldn’t be “forced” to raise their child, or even wait for a few months until someone else can take over for them.
We live in a sick world, and don’t be surprised if Planned Parenthood isn’t offering euthanization services for toddlers in the decades to come. In fact, given past strategies it is fairly likely that some sociopath executive in the organization will use the murder of Cooper Harris as an example for why Planned Parenthood should offer more “humane” options for parents like Ross Harris. More humane like dismemberment, or saline burning treatments, or driving a spike into the base of their skull. All of which have been employed by abortionists to kill children.
Abortion is a modern holocaust. Nothing less.
Because one reformation was not enough.
