“Would you speak to our class on behalf of the pro-life position?” the public school teacher asked me over the phone.
“Yes,” was my immediate, glad response.
So there I was before the high school class, speaking on behalf of women, children, pregnancy, life, love, responsibility, hope, community, nurturing, and family. It was my privilege. It was a speaker’s adrenaline rush.
The students were very attentive, far more than I had expected them to be. The teacher sat at her desk, appearing neutral on the subject at hand.
Then after I finished what I had to say, the Planned Parenthood rep came to the front of the room, presenting her position.
She looked like a model for a fashion magazine. She was exceptionally poised and of course well-spoken — smooth voice, smiling face, appropriate gestures while delivering her message — the works.
I could tell that she had the class in the palm of her hand. She knew her business and delivered it first-class.
Of course, what was behind her doublespeak was murder — sheer murder. She defended in classy terms the right to kill a child in a woman’s womb. Not just a woman’s womb, but a mother’s womb. Mother and child go together in this scenario. So it was more than woman; it was mother, too.
Every time I am a part of one of these dialogues in the marketplace of our communities, I leave with a sick feeling way in the pit of my stomach. It is not only that I have had to endure one more charade of defending-the-right-to-kill-off-an-innocent-baby-who-has-no-say-in-the-matter; but also I have had to watch a female go sour right in front of all of our eyes.
You can guess that this article was written long ago.
Rather closer to today’s reality than I would have guessed: 2003, rather than 1968.
Well, the Victorian idolization of women was bound to fall apart one day. It just took longer than I would have thought.
And now, every stout, uncompromising feminist in America will defend the right of a man with male sex organs who is attracted to women to join a woman’s swim team and be called a woman, on his own say so.
It’s not merely that God is not mocked.
It’s that He goes completely out of His way to turn His enemies into a pathetic joke.
The Nazis gets to discover what racial war is really all about, at the hands of the Soviets.
The Soviets, forever shouting about the prosperous paradise they are building, create nothing but cages and poverty and oppression.
The White Progressives, with their eugenic visions and their eagerness to get the Darker Races to accept the abortion culture, watch as White Americans become an ever-shrinking percentage of the national population.
(And to the extent that that their race survives, it will be because of their deepest enemies, White Conservative Christians.)
Black Progressives, of course, are far more interested in the fate of homosexuals (Obama) and transsexuals (BLM) than with the dead black men that fuel their funding drives.
(Can’t break ranks with the Democratic police unions, you know!)
But to watch a perfectly manicured, well-bred, smiling female in front of children telling them in doublespeak how to murder a child — how it is their right to see a child obliterated if that is their wish — is truly one of the chilling stand-offs a morally sensitive person has to endure.
So it is that they are legion. They are womanning our television talk shows. They are co-hosting our morning telecasts. They are starring in our movies. They are sitting in our Congress. They are taking charge of governorships. They are writing our newspaper editorials and editing our flashy newsstand magazines. They are teaching our school children and becoming principals and school superintendents.
These females have turned sour all around us.
And all the while the snow falls upon meadows. Blue birds come to the feeders on a frosty morning. Mothers buy baby food in the corner grocery aisle. And boys and girls sled down the neighbor’s hillside.
Females turning soul can appear as the most natural thing going. That’s why it’s so tragic, particularly when realizing its is actuality all around us.
Something akin to Hitler’s soldiers gunning down the Jews in winter outside a quiet German metropolis.
Life is often disappointing.
And the quiet murders in quiet places go on as long as Christians allow it to.
For the murders to stop, we must end it in our own hearts, and our own families.
We will have to drive out compromisers and fence-sitter from both the pews and the pulpits… and the seminary faculty, too.
That won’t happen, as few Christian laymen are going to spend the time and energy needed to watch the seminaries – and the denominations! – and organize their punishment for disobedience.
So the lies and the killing will go on and on.
Until the murder-tolerant seminaries no longer get recruits and funding. And the welcoming “one-hand/other-hand” denominations age out and blow away.
We also need driven laymen who flick away the ever-failure Religious Professionals, and build their own culture, their own Christian societies, small but fertile seeds of the next Christian civilization.
The Kingdom of God is going to be built.
And the well-groomed liars will fail with their sterile and brutally murderous, deceptive, and utterly lawless Empire of Man.
The longer we wait, though, the longer the Satanists — of both sexes — will enjoy their lawless reign.
Let’s get started, and build our future, even as they destroy theirs.
Our future is borne by God-fearing women, raising up God-fearing sons.
Disciplined and Lawful Sons
“Don’t start things you can’t finish.”
Rather an ironic lesson for the Soviets to teach the Nazis, observing the (far less evil, but still wrong and lawless) Russian attack on Ukraine in 2022.
Christians would be very wise to heed the lesson, taught with someone else’s blood and someone else’s’ public humiliation.
- “Stick with your knitting.”
- “Stay local and decentralized.”
- “Personal obedience first, then family, then church, then your job and business. Politics fourth.”
- “Service first. Responsibility and authority only after you have earned it in the eyes of the public, believer and pagan alike.”
You can’t go too far wrong, if you focus on your daily duties to others rather than fever-dreams of control over the Others.
And if you fail small, it’s not too costly to dust yourself off, learn the lesson, and start again on a better footing.
God favours the humble and righteous man, who respects God’s Law and is willing to learn.
Hebrews 12:3-17, English Standard Version
Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal. For you know that afterward, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no chance to repent, though he sought it with tears.
So, having been adopted into the family of God, let us not bring disgrace on His head by behaving like evil lawless bastards… as Swank’s own adopted black son chose to be.
For a time.
From far away, with just a few internet shards of the complete story, it looks like a story of repentance. Not the foolishness of Esau, but the wisdom of the Prodigal Son.
So God does hear the prayer of a righteous father!
It’s better to go to heaven than hell… and better to make the good choice while you are still alive. Even if you have made some ugly mistakes along the way, it is still possible to repent and live.
As the repentant criminal next to Christ discovered, five minutes after he died.
Let’s follow God’s Law.
Let’s count the cost.
Let’s start only what we — and our lawful successors — can finish.
And let’s bring glory to God, our Father, with our words and deeds.
Rather than disgrace, shame… and then disinheritance, followed by the flames.
I’m glad that Jay won’t be in the flames, that he left the evil way leading to death.
A worthy example, a good lesson for others to learn from.
But, we can go even higher, if we refuse to weave from the straight road in the first place!
We need more prayer, more repentance, and more love.
And no one will get that from our prideful Secularist Betters.
The hope of the world rests with humble, loving, praying, righteous men — male and female — filled with the Holy Spirit, building Christ’s Kingdom, interceding with Christ our Redeemer for the wicked and the foolish.
And not with well-groomed killers, of either sex.
