Chelsea has stepped into another Twitter minefield. She has compared support for Confederate War memorials to setting up a statue of Lucifer in churches. Here’s what she wrote:
“The story of Lucifer who rebelled against God — is part of many Christians’ traditions. I’ve never been in a church with a Lucifer shrine.”
Chelsea and her mother appeal to the Bible (although Chelsea doesn’t seem to believe it) when she and her mother disavow what the Bible teaches on so many issues. Consider abortion.
Here’s what she said in an interview:
I find it quite insulting sometimes when people say to my mom, my dad or me . . . that they question our faith. I was raised in a Methodist church and I left the Baptist church before my dad did, because I didn’t know why they were talking to me about abortion when I was 6 in Sunday school — that’s a true story.
Maybe because abortion is evil and leads to the death of unborn children and the Bible makes this point in clear terms and it’s the job of the church to teach what the Bible teaches.
Chelsea goes on in the interview to argue that her reading of the Bible supports abortion.
I recognized that there were many expressions of faith that I don’t agree with and feel quite antithetical to how I read the Bible. But I find it really challenging when people who are self-professed liberals kind of look askance at my family’s history.
In her reading of the Bible, where do she and her mother find support for abortion? Inquiring minds want to know. If she needs some help, she can read “Aborting a Bad Argument.”
Let’s apply her analogy to her mother. Her mother supports abortion-on-demand, as does Chelsea. You may recall that she stopped going to a Baptist church when she was six-years-old when she learned that her church opposed abortion
Abortion kills unborn babies, and yet there are statutes and paintings of Chelsea’s parents here and there. Is that like putting a statue of Lucifer in Churches? Forced servitude was and is immoral, but killing unborn babies is worse. Let’s not forget that black unborn babies are killed at a higher percentage than white unborn babies. A number of black pastors have described it as “black genocide,” a description that Jesse Jackson once used.
Chelsea might say, “Well, abortion is legal; slavery isn’t.”
Slavery was legal when the Civil War was fought. Liberals argue that the war was fought to end slavery.
Chelsea could argue thusly: “But unborn babies are not persons and therefore are not protected as persons under the Constitution.”
As I point out above, the Bible regards unborn babies as persons, as “children.”
Unborn babies are persons like African slaves were persons…
