While hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers are marching in Washington, Mark Shea delivers this:
Jefferson bought the entire Louisiana Purchase for two cents an acre. It was an incredible steal. Smartest decision in American history.
Trump is buying the complete cooperation of prolife Christians even more cheaply. For the cost of a few words from Mike Pence and KellyAnne Conway at the Prolife March in Washington, prolifers will henceforth reliably go to bat for every evil he wants to do. Torture? Fantastic! Scapegoating immigrants? We are on board! Destroying access to health care for the poor! Great!
Christian Trump supporters have completely bought a false soteriology that opposition to abortion taketh away the sins of the world.
Prove me wrong. I beg you.
Go here to read the comments. Prove you wrong Mark? Simple:
- The pro-life movement supports pro-life deeds, and we are already seeing them from this administration and the Republican Congress.
- Supporting an administration on one position does not mean supporting an administration on all positions. You of course understand this because in the last election you were trying to drum up votes for Hillary Clinton. You said that you did so while opposing her position on abortion.
- In a post that speaks of scapegoating you then proceed to apply to the entire pro-life cause positions which have nothing to do with abortion, and which they may or may not hold. Unless mass mindreading is a blogging charism that I am unaware of, you are engaging in scapegoating.
- Let’s fess up Mark. The fight against abortion simply is not important to you any more. As you have traveled leftward in your political trajectory, you have developed a fierce hatred of Republicans and conservatives. The fact that your newfound friends on the left are almost entirely pro-abortion is inconvenient for you. Thus you spend your time slandering the pro-life movement and praying for the destruction of your adversaries on the right because they are not really pro-life unless they also sign on to the laundry list of leftist positions that are now near and dear to your heart. You are entitled to your own political convictions in this fair land of freedom, but for the sake of intellectual honesty, please stop pretending that you give a damn about abortion.
