Orlando v abortion

The Hypocrisy of America’s Response to Orlando: Mourning for 49 While Butchering Millions

I’ve often tried to point out the inconsistencies, flawed logic and hypocrisy of many liberals. They seem to value everything except normal human values.

Just take a look at abortion. I’ve personally known and heard of many liberals who I would call tree and animal huggers but who support the brutal slaughter of unborn babies. They speak and advocated for saving the seals, whales, dolphins, owls, frogs, salamanders and fish, yet they also speak and advocate to protect their rights to viciously rip their unborn children limb from limb without any anesthesia.

When I was in college, I was conducting a study on an introduced herd of desert bighorn sheep into an area where they once lived. My study was sanctioned by Arizona State University and the Arizona Game and Fish Department, along with the rancher who owned the remote land where the bighorn were being re-introduced. On one of my trips to the study area, I found the road blocked with a locked gate and sign by one of the prevalent conservation groups I won’t name. When I contacted them and explained what I was doing, they denied me access, claiming they didn’t want the bighorn disturbed in any way, even though my study was to help the bighorn. I told them the road was county owned and they had no legal right to prevent access and then told them that if they didn’t grant access that I would take their gate out. My next trip to the study area was met with a couple of members of the tree hugger group. I noticed they had a bumper sticker supporting abortion. I asked them how they could be so extreme in protecting nature yet support the ugly murder of infants. They responded by saying unborn babies are not human and not really alive until they are born so they didn’t matter. I tried to point out their hypocrisy but their liberalness had so blinded their judgement that they could not comprehend how illogical their argument was.

I’ve had similar conversations with people with bumper stickers or t-shirts to protect seals, whales and dolphins. Just like the liberally blinded tree huggers, they failed to see the problem with their own logic.

So now, the nation mourns for 49 people murdered by Omar Mateen in Orlando. The news has been filled with all of the public outcry about an act of terrorism. More stomach turning has been the overwhelming support for the LGBT community across the nation. We hear over and over how brutal and horrific the scene in the gay nightclub was.

Yet, most of the people and media outlets focusing on the tragedy in Orlando also support a woman’s right to horrifically have her unborn child torn apart and thrown into the trash like a spoiled piece of meat. They’re blind to the bloody scenes being playing out hundreds of times day across our nation.

According to NumberofAbortion.com, there has been just over 59 million unborn babies murdered since Roe v. Wade in 1973. There has already been over 512,000 murdered unborn babies so far this year. That’s an average of nearly 3,000 brutal murders a day.

Where is the public outcry? Where is the media decrying the tortuous deaths these babies have undergone? Where is the outcry of our nation’s leaders?

They are feeding on the deaths of 49 adults who were engaged in a lifestyle that God called abominable while at the same time ignoring the 3,000 cruelly murdered babies each and every day. Their hypocrisy causes me to consider what God said in Leviticus 20:1-5, 13 and what Jesus said in Matthew 18:5-6,10.

“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech.”

“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”

“Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, 6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea…See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.”

America is sacrificing our children on the altar of liberalism and harming the very ones that God and Jesus warned us not to harm. Yet we embraced and now legally protected those who live a homosexual lifestyle that God condemns.

The reaction to the Orlando shootings clearly shows that America has its priorities and values backwards which are setting us up for God’s judgement and wrath. We’re already under judgement – read Romans 1:18-31. It’s only time until we suffer God’s wrath. I don’t know about you but that scares the heck out of me because no matter how faithful you are to Jesus Christ, you will not be able to escape the wrath of God  because it will be brought down on the entire nation. The only way to avoid God’s wrath is for our nation to follow what God told Solomon in 2 Chronicles 7:14:

“I my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
