Skip to comments.The Godless Religion of Prochoice

When religion goes, other religions take its place. They mimic the forms and formalities of it without the substance. They are faiths without any gods but themselves and without any devils but themselves.
Confronted with the religious horror of abortion, the post-religious faiths of the free world act out a godless religious drama in which they take turns playing all the old religious roles without the religion. The most pernicious of these is the martyr to the morally superior high ground of humanism.
Faced with imagined violence, they retreat into a universalism that no one else shares. "We feel your pain," they cry. "Our children are just like your children." If that feeling were reciprocated, it might mean something. But it isn't. Instead it's another act of pointless humanistic martyrdom.
A morally superior society doesn't clamber onto some universalist moral high ground. It isn't infinite restraint that makes one society superior to the other. That's a recipe for the eventual extinction of everything that society has to offer, to itself and to the world.
The elements that make one society superior to another are to be found in its culture, its arts and its sciences, in its religious inspirations, its engineering feats, its medical research, its poems and songs, its roots to the past and its vision to the future. A morally superior society protects these things.
Charity begins at home. So does morality.
A society that is too moral to protect itself is immoral because it is incapable of protecting the sources of its morality.
A moral society does not put its people in harm's way rather than protect them. If it does so, in the name of some warped sense of ethics toward the enemy, it is not a moral society.
It is an immoral society.
Moral societies make it possible for their people to be moral by taking on the burden of protecting them. A society that abandons this burden and demands that its people be moral by accepting suffering, whether it comes from crime or terrorism, is a society that gives its people a choice between becoming monsters or martyrs.
This is not the behavior of a moral society, but a self-destructive society that glories in the empty martyrdom of the moral high ground.
A government that will not protect the people and will not let the people protect themselves is not moral, it is destructive. It demands that the people embrace martyrdom or force it onto others in the name of a self-nullifying set of ethics that will ultimately result in the martyrdom of their extinction or their transformation into monsters who are forced to reject all human norms in order to survive.
A moral society does not embrace martyrdom for any purpose other than the perpetuation of itself.
If prochoice is at least clear on who is doing the killing and why, what is the theology of the sacrifice? Why do babies continue to be murdered in the name of some abstract idea of well being that never comes? What diplomatic deity are they being sacrificed to? What is this strange theology that has come into the house of religion and sanctifies the needless death of children? Only by allowing our children to be brought up on the altar of liberalism as burnt offerings to the dead god of universal ethics, will we be redeemed?
The redemption has yet to come. Countless sacrifices have been made and well being is further away than ever. Perhaps not enough unwanted children have been offered up to the moral high ground.
Maybe if 58 million more are aborted, the world will finally realize that abortion is a moral decision. And if not, there are always millions more to be offered up on the universalist pyre to the man-made god of our own morality.
There is a perverse sadism and masochism in this faithless faith whose disciples scourge themselves like the pagan priests of old. Having pathetically tethered their identities to the conviction of their own moral superiority, always a shaky thing in human affairs, prochoice will kill their own children to protect this cheap delusion of their own victimhood.
Having created their own faith and their own moral superiority, they must be willing to kill in its name. These are not sacrifices of peace. They are the martyrdom of a moral superiority that can only be proven through victimization and mass murder. They are a perverse deviation from religion and are only a political movement.
For morality to survive, this masochistic creed has to die. Instead of sacrificing our children to Molech, universalist ethics and a conviction in our own moral superiority, let us sacrifice these things on the altar so that our children may live. Let us pile them up on the altars of our hearts and burn them up. Let us take the ideas and the rhetoric and most of all the false sense of superiority that we are better because of our false morality and watch them go up in smoke.
Only when these things perish, will we be able to be truly worship God. As long as they live within us, what we believe and what we worship is the Stockholm Syndrome that says we must allow our children to be abused and killed to prove to ourselves that we are good people and thereby disprove the results of that abuse on our psyche. The more they are abused, the more certain we become that they deserve it and the more we welcome that abuse.
It is a vicious cycle in which we allow our children to be murdered so that we can live as we wish, in which we hate ourselves to prove that we do not deserve to be hated.
Instead of proving our morality through our self-hatred, let us prove it by instead protecting our worth. Our enemies are willing to die because they have nothing to offer but murder. It is natural for them to choose death because they are worthless in every sense of the word.
Let us choose life.
This twisted attitude is not unique to other countries. We have constructed our own cult of death right here in the USA. The dysfunctional relationship is that of the abuser to the abused. They know that they are morally superior because they kill. We know that we are morally superior because we accept their abuse and allow them to kill.
This is the great spiritual sickness that is bringing entire civilizations down into the grave. It is a sickness born out of self-hatred and an abiding sense of worthlessness. If we do not learn to take pride in our civilizations, if we do not learn to love our accomplishments, then we will die. If we continue to eat away at ourselves, to act as if our moral and ethics are inferior to those of our enemies, then they will destroy ourselves and the darkness will fall.
Let us choose life, light and love. Let us learn to love ourselves and hate our enemies, not out of some reflex or petty jingoism, but because we have come to value what they seek to take from us. Let us drive out the self-hatred. Let us take apart their cult of death and replace it with a religion of life.
Only when we destroy our own cult of death, will be able to defeat the cult of death of our enemies.
"I have yet before you life and death, the blessing and the curse," God tells us. "Therefore choose life that you may live, you and your children."
If we do not choose life, then we cannot live.
Pro-Choice before conception, Pro-Life after conception!
Tree worship, female goddesses and child sacrifice were common practices of various pagan groups mentioned in the old testament. They’ve just re-emerged lately as Satan takes over the culture.
An increasingly bread-and-circuses electorate hasn’t helped.
If we do not choose life, then we cannot live.
I would not call prochoice “godless”, for their god is Moloch, known by many names, such as Saturn, Cronus, Ba’al, and no doubt many others.
Simply put, it is child sacrifice in the hope of immediate gain, prosperity and wealth.
