There are a lot of bad things that happen in this world. Religious people say this is because humanity is detached from God. Liberals, atheists and people in the media laugh at such thinking and declare religion is soooo passé. Only nut jobs and the intolerant are religious these days. After all, if people kill in the name of God, how can religion be good?
Religious Conservative: “Without God and religion, moral values have no foundation and make no sense.”
Politically-Correct Liberal: “Pfffffttt, don’t be stupid. I know plenty of atheists who are good people and do great things for others! More than even many so-called Christians!”
Religious Conservative: “Well . . . don’t you think that maybe the reason we have so much bullying, violence and murders in school is because we kicked God, religion and even the suggestion that there is good and evil in this world out of schools?
Politically-Correct Liberal: “Seriously, I don’t know where you get your crazy ideas from. That’s why we have classes on ethics and tolerance! Stop trying to push your radical religious beliefs of others!”
Since religious people hate being called radical, they meekly bow down and let politically-correct teachers and shows like Glee teach their kids what is ethical or not.
But have you ever wondered if this was enough? If a religious person says that without God, “ethics” is flexible enough to change over time into accepting behaviors once thought horrible, are they just a stupid Bible-thumper who is close-minded and ignorant? As it turns out, and answer is “No”. They actually knew exactly what is going to happen.
On Feb. 23, 2012, the Journal of Medical Ethics, a leading, peer-reviewed international journal that influences the ethical decisions of medical professionals around the world, published a paper advocating “after-birth abortions”. Or in other words, infanticide should be acceptable if the baby would cause any burden on the mother (has any baby ever NOT caused any burdens on their mother?).
“ … to bring up such children (with disabilities such as Down’s syndrome) might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care. On these grounds, the fact that a fetus has the potential to become a person who will have an (at least) acceptable life is no reason for prohibiting abortion. Therefore, we argue that, when circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.
. . . Therefore, we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be. Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk.“
Remember all those crazy pro-life (or as the media sometimes calls them, “anti-choice”) people predicting that our abortion culture being pushed by feminists and liberals will cause us to lose respect for life? It turns out crossing that line between killing babies in the womb and out of the womb wasn’t that hard to cross after all. It’s actually very logical to liberals and all non-religious people. If you think about it, the only difference between a ‘fetus’ and an ‘infant’ is a few minutes and a couple inches of flesh.
“Hold on Burn Adams!” you might say. “This is only a paper published in a leading international medical journal of ethics! No one will be influenced in America!”
Actually, our very own Barack Obama voted FOUR times against laws that would protect babies who survived abortions from being killed. Like the paper’s authors argued, Obama said he didn’t want to “burden” mothers with having to take care of their child. Instead, let nature take its course and the babies will starve or freeze to death within 8 hours. Think this is horrible and unthinkable that this is happening? Well, as Obama and the rest of the Democrats in this country made quite clear this month, leave the moral judgements up to the government and just do as you’re told.
So welcome to a world without religion or God. If we re-elect Obama or any other of his liberal comrades, we wouldn’t have to worry about the “wall of separation” between church and state. God and every other moral value would be surgically removed like tumors from the now all-powerful federal government.
But go ahead and don’t believe what I’m saying. Don’t even believe the facts that popping up all around you and are being purposefully ignored by the liberal mainstream media.
After all, I must be just another one of those extreme right-wing religious fanatics that NBC and CNN warned you about.
