Planned Parenthood superhero terminates Christian protesters

Planned Parenthood superhero terminates Christian protesters. Also drowns promoter of abstinence in animated video pushing 'safe is sexy' message.

An online animated video sponsored by Planned Parenthood's San Francisco-area branch features a superhero character drowning an abstinence promoter in a trash can and blasting into oblivion several pro-life picketers protesting in front of one of the organization's facilities. The eight-minute "Superhero for Choice," posted on the Planned Parenthood Golden Gate website, has a bespectacled black woman in San Francisco morphing into a red-suited flying enforcer, bent on making the world safe for the organization's values.

Viewers see three teenagers talking with an ugly green-faced man sporting a top hat and bow tie who tries to tell the kids abstinence is the only sure way to protect against sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancy. The teen girl rebuts the man, naming several birth-control methods.

Retorts the little green man: "Those are instruments from the devil's toolbox!" The superhero arrives in time to fill a trash can with water and dump the pro-abstinence character into it, slamming the cover down. After the man's muffled voice eventually dies off, the superhero tosses the teens a "safe sex kit," reminding the kids: "Safe is sexy!"

The "Superhero for Choice," dubbed Dianisis, next confronts a group of protesters in front of a Planned Parenthood facility. They, too, are ugly and have green faces, carrying signs that say, "Pray for thy sins." Religious protesters get blasted. The superhero character uses a "condom gun" that catches each protester in a prophylactic bubble, which subsequently explodes. Though she admits the protesters have a First Amendment right to picket, she glories in the fact that people can now visit the Planned Parenthood facility unimpeded.

The flying superhero then travels to Washington, D.C., where she puts a giant condom on the Washington Monument and confronts a Southern senator who is stricken with "misinformed conservatism." The woman's final stop is a village in Africa, where she talks to a doctor working to stem HIV/AIDS and to make sure "every child is a wanted child." The superhero remarks before leaving: "I have an appointment with the Rev. Jerry Falwell – that schmuck."

Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International, decried the Planned Parenthood animated piece. "With its latest marketing gimmick … Planned Parenthood is glamorizing violence against people of faith," Sedlak said in a statement. "The hatred and religious bigotry demonstrated by Planned Parenthood in this video are shocking and offensive."

Sedlak says the video could encourage people to act out the violence shown. "In this post-9/11 era of terrorism, Planned Parenthood has recklessly crossed the line by promoting violence against people who do not share the organization's radical beliefs," said Sedlak. "Planned Parenthood's actions are reprehensible, because there is no guarantee that someone viewing this video might not act on its suggestions and instigate violence against people of faith." Commented blogger Dawn Eden: "Now, I ask you, if the American Life League's website featured a cartoon depicting an ALL superhero blowing up nonviolent Planned Parenthood activists, would Planned Parenthood just shrug it off?

"I think we all know what would happen. There would be an uproar." American Life League wants heads to roll over the video. Said Sedlak: "American Life League demands that Planned Parenthood publicly reveal the names of all persons involved in the development and posting of this outrageous material and immediately dismiss all individuals involved from their positions as employees or volunteers. We also demand that Planned Parenthood issue a public apology without delay to pro-life Christians everywhere for inciting violence against them." While Planned Parenthood refers countless women for abortions across the nation, the word "abortion" is not mentioned in the film. Planned Parenthood Golden Gate is a consortium of eight clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area. Repeated calls to the organization's administrative offices were not returned by press time.

Actually, this cartoon makes me think that Planned Parenthood is more moderate than I thought- it has the character say that pro-life protesters are protected by the First Ammendment, something I've never heard the pro-abortion side say. In "real life," the First Ammendment does not cover pro-lifers.

Planned Barrenhood is comprised of Satan's minions.

How many black children have been exterminated by them, just as their founder, Margaret Sanger, advocated? Certainly in the millions by now.

Also, seems like planned parenthood is taking up the islamic cause of killing Christians. Of course the radical fundamentalists liberals who see this could take this as an encouragement to commit criminal acts, including terrorism.

Interesting that they don't remotely consider abstinence as a viable option of birth control --- having their hero attack the "abstinence promoter."

The Planned Parenthood PUBLIC party line is always, "we are for abstinence first, of course, but those that indulge should be informed" about birth control (which has considerable logical appeal, as there will always be those who induldge).

The attack on the abstinence supporter, though, reveals Planned Parenthood to actually be against chastity altogether, and does not merely consider such an idea simplistic/idealistic.

Revealing.

Good catch. Planned Parenthhod was founded to exterminate the "inferior races" especially blacks. Nothing has changed in 70 years. 40% of PP murdered babies are black currently, consistent with their original goal.

Has anyone ever researched how many convicted sex offenders work in the San Francisco-area branch of Planned Parenthood?

Seriously, this seems more than anything else like a recruiting tool designed to encourage kids to have as much sex as they can, which is pretty much what your average child molestor/NAMBLA member wants.

You can't make this stuff up-All throughout funding and production of this cartoon, no one, NO ONE, said, hey should we be pushing a cartoon glorifying the extermination of babies just a few years younger than the children in the target audience?

WTH? Even condoms don't protect entirely from STDs such as genital warts. Now I know what is wrong with the liberals, the STDs they have contracted are affecting their brains.

Yet more confirmation that pro-abortion liberals are vicious racists pushing a Holocaust of Black children, in the spirit of racist PP founder Margaret Sanger. Sanger used Blacks in leadership positions to hide her true goals, as she said in 1939, "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population."

Anything for a buck. These Auschwitz-style death merchants with a foundation in eugenics (which they refuse to repudiate) make big bucks killing the unborn. No real difference between them and the Gambino crime family.

The ACLU and its ilk have false gods, however, they will be accountable to Jehovah God for their actions.

The words of the Bible and history agree. God said he would destroy those idol worshipers; He has done it before and will do it again.

Did she get a permit for that?

I see no reason to freak about this. It's a sign of incredible desperation. It also fits with the left's infatuation with terrorists--I mean, this person is just a freelancer, not affiliated with the government, right? Hero to some, vigilante to others...

I agree. What else could we expect from murderous baby butchers?

Reduce teen/unwanted pregnancy and these folks lose relevance, which is what they are fighting for as they are a people who gain their identity through the death of unborn children.

A special place in Hell awaits them.

Why should that be a surprise? They get off on doing the exact same thing to babies every day.

At least they're now admitting they side with the terrorists' methods, as opposed to dealing with disputes through the legal system of the country they claim to love.

Dionysus

Dionysus, also commonly known by his Roman name Bacchus, appears to be a god who has two distinct origins. On the one hand, Dionysus was the god of wine, agriculture, and fertility of nature, who is also the patron god of the Greek stage. On the other hand, Dionysus also represents the outstanding features of mystery religions, such as those practiced at Eleusis: ecstasy, personal delivery from the daily world through physical or spiritual intoxication, and initiation into secret rites. Scholars have long suspected that the god known as Dionysus is in fact a fusion of a local Greek nature god, and another more potent god imported rather late in Greek pre-history from Phrygia (the central area of modern day Turkey) or Thrace.

According to one myth, Dionysus is the son of the god Zeus and the mortal woman, Semele (daughter of Cadmus of Thebes). Semele is killed by Zeus' lightning bolts while Dionysus is still in her womb. Dionysus is rescued and undergoes a second birth from Zeus after developing in his thigh. Zeus then gives the infant to some nymphs to be raised. In another version, one with more explicit religious overtones, Dionysus, also referred to as Zagreus in this account, is the son of Zeus and Persephone, Queen of the Underworld. Hera gets the Titans to lure the infant with toys, and then they rip him to shreds eating everything but Zagreus' heart, which is saved by either Athena, Rhea, or Demeter. Zeus remakes his son from the heart and implants him in Semele who bears a new Dionysus Zagreus. Hence, as in the earlier account, Dionysus is called "twice born." The latter account formed a part of the Orphic religion's religious mythology.

It does seem clear that Dionysus, at least the Phrygian Dionysus, was a late arrival in the Greek world and in Greek mythology. He is hardly mentioned at all in the Homeric epics, and when he is it is with some hostility. A number of his stories are tales of how Dionysus moved into a city, was resisted, and then destroyed those who opposed him. The most famous account of this is that of Euripides in his play the Bacchae. He wrote this play while in the court of King Archelaus of Macedon, and nowhere do we see Dionysus more destructive and his worship more dangerous than in this play. Scholars have speculated not unreasonably that in Macedon Euripides discovered a more extreme form of the religion of Dionysus being practiced than the more civil, quiet forms in Athens.

Briefly, Dionysus returns to Thebes, his putative birthplace, where his cousin Pentheus is king. He has returned to punish the women of Thebes for denying that he was a god and born of a god. Pentheus is enraged at the worship of Dionysus and forbids it, but he cannot stop the women, including his mother Agave, or even the elder statesmen of the kingdom from swarming to the wilds to join the Maenads (a term given to women under the ecstatic spell of Dionysus) in worship. Dionysus lures Pentheus to the wilds where he is killed by the Maenads and then mutilated by Agave.

My response to Planned Parenthood is, "GOD has a message for you. Hear it and repent."

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22 Woe unto [them that are] mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 24 Therefore as the fire devoures the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, [so] their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Fascinating. Zeus kills Semele and Dionysus is saved and implanted into Zeus to complete his gestation. I wonder if the pro-abort crowd knows this story.
