Welcome to Monday and more illogical and absurd articles and blogs from the left media to discuss around the water cooler.
Believe it or not it was a slow illogical and absurd week in the progressive agenda due to the state of the union address and deflated footballs I suspect but still there were a few to not ignore.
First up the progressives are panicking over the 2014 election, scared to death ironically that they may no longer be able to kill unborn children. CNN publishes “How states are playing politics with women’s bodies”
Progressives love to frame abortion like this, “it’s our bodies your taking away a woman’s right to end her unborns life”. The article is scary to think our society is demanding this but reality is It’s not, abortion is becoming an extreme idea.
Part of the article reads as this “After she was unable to get the care she needed at the clinic closest to her, she left her small town in the Texas panhandle and went to Oklahoma, where she was told that her pregnancy was too far along to receive an abortion there. So she came to us.”
The writer of the article tries to call an abortion medical care, whatever happened to do no harm I guess they forgot that one. Those of us who oppose abortion are called anti-choice yet does not the choice start before the baby is made.
You choose to have sex and bam a child is made, yes we know pro abortion advocates will want to use rape and incest to condone abortion but be honest this is a tiny percent and believe it or not there are churches and groups out there that will take on the responsibility for these babies that are born.
If a culture wants to hang on to a small percentage and condone killing knowing unborn children are living and feeling inside the mother then we now have a corrupt and bankrupt society.
Next Slate publishes a blog from Alternet so this is kind of a two for one for these two progressive rags. “The 12 worst ideas religion has unleashed on the world”
The shocking thing is they actually pick on more than one religion. Normally leftist progressives will focus on Christians or Christianity but I have to say they seemed to try and spread the love hate here. I’m going to just lay out the Christian points since I’m not Muslim or Hindu, I’ll stay out of their domain.
First of the 12 ideas they go after is the concept of Chosen people: This is where lack of reading and understanding your Biblical text bites you and shoots out a red flag in this article, for sure an atheist wrote this (Valerie Tarico).
Chosen people is not an idea it was a name given by God in the Old Testament to Abrahams lineage aka children of Abraham then later defined as the Jews or Hebrews. In the New Testament after dying for our sins by Jesus then his resurrection the chosen people now extend to everyone that excepted Jesus as their personal savior in their hearts and minds aka salvation.
Only God knows who will except his gift of salvation so only God has chosen these people something atheist and people not willing to give themselves to God can understand.
Heretics: people don’t like the word because it calls them out on their corrupting of God’s word. Heretics tend to water down Gods word or misinterpret Biblical text to fit their immorality.
Atheists look at it as religious people not being tolerant of others belief but as Christians we have to follow the basis of God’s word.
We are not to add to or take away to fit our needs. God fits our needs and we have to add to or take away from our lives to receive what God can give us.
Holy War: Something we see in Islam constantly and it’s apart of their culture. Early Catholic leadership used this to try and free Israel and fight back Islam but in all reality Christians do not fight in Holy wars not for the last few hounded centuries.
What one century mistake made has always followed the Catholic Church and Christianity but let’s be real guys Christians don’t do holy wars.
Blasphemy: Again the writer not understanding Biblical text somewhat gets this wrong in the Christian definition; they have it right in the Islamic definition.
God gives us free will so the ability to disbelieve in God is tolerated but does not go unpunished but man will not dole out that punishment that will be left up to God.
Making fun of Christians and God is something Christians do not like or encourage but living in a free society we have to deal with it and sometimes except its existence but we as Christians are not to harm the offender but to defend God with truth and righteousness.
Glorified suffering: Something that is not really practiced anymore. The definition given in this the article is basically an old concept of injuring one’s self to keep you on the narrow path of right.
Tarito use the crucifix as a glorified torture again not understanding Biblical history can bite you. God does not and has not suggested injuring one’s self as a means to make things right, this is a man made concept.
Forgiveness has always been God’s way of making things right since the resurrection of Jesus. Our suffering as Christians do glorify Gods name and I go back to again not knowing and understanding your Biblical text and history will mislead you from the truth.
Genital mutilation: something Islam is known for not Christianity or Jews but Tarico has the stones to say circumcision is a form of genital mutilation talk about being out of touch and hating anything that God has commanded is but wow.
Hell: Yes hell is in the Bible because God created hell, Tarico suggest it is used to change or curb bad behavior and to a degree it is used.
Man still sins and does bad things no matter if there is a heaven or hell. If there is no hell then there is no heaven, the idea of everyone except Hitler is going to heaven is just not reality or Biblical.
Christians are not happy that people Hitler and Stalin existed but they do and did and God has made a place for them.
Christians don’t want to see anyone walk that path but it is a reality since God gave free will. If the concept of hell scares you to do the right thing and seek God out then that’s not a bad thing in my opinion.
Eternal Life: Atheist hate this because it’s not fare so they call this a fairytale. Tarico again lacks the Biblical understanding and states the problem with eternal life is it keeps people from seeing the beauty of what we already have on earth.
“The real reason that the notion of eternal life is such a bad invention, though, is the degree to which it diminishes and degrades existence on this earthly plane. With eyes lifted heavenward, we can’t see the intricate beauty beneath our feet. Devout believers put their spiritual energy into preparing for a world to come rather than cherishing and stewarding the one wild and precious world we have been given”-Torico
Not so, eternal life is just a bigger reward. What is here on this earth is be bigger in heaven and in the new earth that God will have waiting for us. Believe me I have seen some of Gods greatest creations in this country and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the next.
Male Ownership of Female Fertility: This idea is a complete misunderstanding of Biblical text to think God condones female ownership and women are slaves to men. No God celebrates women baring children as a great gift. Women were created by God to have children to continue the human race how much more of a gift from God could there be.
Bibliolatry (aka Book Worship): Now this is really stretching it and again the lack of understanding Biblical text shows us just how much lack of knowledge is at play here.
The concept of Bibliolatry is a direct contradiction of the 1st commandment and nobody that follows God and seeks the truth of Jesus worships the Bible they worships God of the Bible.
I suspect that Tarico thinks all religious idea are bad, I do feel she made some progress by adding Islam and Hindu to the list but but also loses it with some very illogical and communist remarks.
Pretty much she is reaching on most of these concepts. There is a lot of misunderstanding, hate, lack of Biblical studying and understanding of who and what God is so we can’t expect much with this blog.
