I’ve gone back and forth, and back and forth about publishing this post. Because, let’s be honest, a lady’s not supposed to talk about politics, religion or money.
But then, when have I ever followed the rules when it comes to that.
But my final push to publish this post came when I was having a quiet hour this afternoon, preparing to write tonight’s post…which was, admittedly, not this.
But I looked up today’s gospel reading (MT 19:16-22), and in very clear, very bold, very plain-as-day letters, I was given — nay, commanded — the “green light” to put this post out into the blogosphere.
You see, Jesus was asked what one must do to gain eternal life. To which He replied “Keep my commandments.”
And when asked “which ones?” the very first commandment out of Jesus’ mouth is, “You shall not kill.”
And in that moment, I knew I had to publish this post.
You see, I’ve been shocked to see the mainstream media referring to Joe Biden’s VP running mate, Kamala Harris, as a middle of the road moderate.
I’m shaking my head in disbelief…a centrist? A pragmatic moderate? I’m bewildered, truly.
These are simply things that she is not.
Not even close.
I want to pause for a moment to say that, I think it is something to celebrate that a woman was chosen as the VP nominee of the democratic party ticket. Especially a woman of color. I applaud that fact, and am encouraged by the forward momentum of our country. (Enter more gushy rhetoric about girl power here…I’ll save you the eye strain…)
Back to the real point of this post:
I find it incredibly ironic that when announcing his pick for VP running mate on Twitter, Joe Biden introduced Kamala Harris as — and I quote — “a fearless fighter for the little guy“
I’m sorry Joe, have you not seen Kamala’s position on pro-abortion politics?
“A fearless fighter for the Little Guy?” Clearly, Joe…you’re not referring to the unborn child. Not that “little guy.” Okay, okay…I understand. Sure.
This “centrist” moderate…this fearless fighter for the “little guy”….Kamala Harris is about as far far left as one can be when it comes to pro-abortion legislature.
She has a 100% approval rating by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund — and no surprise here — but Planned Parenthood significantly funded her run for Senate.
Her relationship with that abortion provider is quite the “entanglement,” for lack of a better word.
Back in 2015, when she was California’s attorney general, the undercover journalist, David Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood‘s heinous and unthinkable practice of selling aborted baby parts. He got it on video. Let me repeat: Planned Parenthood was selling baby parts of aborted children.
And instead of prosecuting Planned Parenthood for their criminal activity, Kamala prosecuted Daleiden instead. And to boot, leaked emails were uncovered between Kamala’s office coordinating with Planned Parenthood to draft legislation that would criminalize undercover investigations like David Daleiden’s.
Repulsive, if you ask me.
She opposes any and all restriction to abortion. She even voted against the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would have made it a federal crime to withhold medical treatment from babies that survived botched abortions.
She supports taxpayer-funded abortions.
And my favorite…she is against parental notification requirements for minors seeking abortions.
Allow me to make myself crystal clear: Kamala Harris is in no way, a moderate. She is not a centrist. Her policies towards the unborn are *rad*i*cal.* And frankly, horrifying.
But back to why I’m bringing this up in the first place…
“You shall not kill.” – Jesus
I couldn’t let this week go by without addressing Joe’s VP pick, because it’s been weighing on my heart for this very reason.
As a Christian voter, I cannot willing elect a candidate (or candidates) who support the killing of innocent children in the womb, no matter how much I may or may not dislike Trump’s personae.
“If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
He asked Jesus, “Which ones?”
And Jesus replied, “You shall not kill.” MT 19
It doesn’t get much clearer than that.
I’m going to be honest, this election terrifies me. I fear that because of this country’s — albeit, perhaps warranted — dislike of Trump, that we’ll be electing an extreme-left Trojan Horse under the guise of Biden’s “back to normal” moderate democratic ticket. And in doing so, we will be opening Pandora’s Box, when it comes to pro-abortion legislature and action.
I just pray – pray – pray for this country, for the hearts of the voters, and the protection of those precious innocent lives in the womb.
I’m not taking political sides here. There are aspects to both parties I agree with: like protecting the environment. I don’t support capital punishment. I think the income gap between the CEO and the floor worker (which is the greatest its been in history) is not right. And yet I also support law and order. I support the police, but want responsible policing.
But the one thing I cannot equivocate on is life. And there’s no “littler guy” than children in the womb.
Life is a gift. Created by God, and protected by rights under the constitution.
Whether we’ll be voting in person, by mail, on the Internet, or by carrier pigeon — who can say. But however we vote this election, I just pray that people put aside their personal vendettas against Trump and take into account the babies, and vote into office leaders who will protect their right to life.
“This is what the Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.” Ez 37:5
