A Meditation Especially for Fellow Christians (and those willing to think so.)
Much of my thought and writing in recent days has, not surprisingly, focused on the events and issues involved in the current battle over the national, socialist takeover of the health care sector being engineered by the Obama faction. Though a discussion of health should focus on how best to strengthen and preserve life, I am struck by the deep preoccupation with killing and death the Obama faction's proposals have forced upon us.
For all his hollow rhetoric of hope and compassion, the inescapable essence of Obama's actions reveals that killing and death are the foundation stones of his political vision. To reduce health care costs he proposes to establish institutions and practices that pressure the elderly and infirm toward self-abnegation and self-harvesting. To advance his political ambition he promotes as rightful action the killing of innocent children in the earliest stages of life. To gratify the demands of the licentious elite that has made him their idol of self-worship, he works to clear the way for those who seek to legitimize an understanding of human sexuality that encourages individuals to turn away from the responsibilities of natural procreation. Thus he extends the shadow of death through self-extinction to the whole human race.
Pope John Paul the Great roused Christians to recognize and reject the culture of death. Today there can be no doubt that Barack Obama is its great High Priest. The platform of the Presidency offers him unparalleled opportunities to promote it, and to draw the American people ever deeper into complicity with its rejection of the Creator's authority and intention. Ironically, those who demand an investigation into the inadequate credentials Obama has offered as proof of his Constitutional eligibility to wield the power of the Presidency, have been derided as 'birthers' by detractors who openly or covertly adhere to the cult of death he represents.
Though intended for derision, the term may aptly apply to people like me. After all, we fight to vindicate the right of birth for every child conceived in the mind of the Creator, God. We fight to preserve society's obligation by law to respect the natural family that is the first belonging and birthright of every human being. We fight to defend respect for the understanding of right and justice that requires all legitimate government to secure the unalienable rights inherent in the Creator's conception of our humanity.
Why do the deriders think we should cringe and be ashamed when they call us by an epithet that brings to mind our faithful allegiance to the truths upheld in America's great Declaration of Independence? I would rather be an advocate of life and birth, than a cultist of child murder and self-inflicted death. I would rather be held up for ridicule as a 'birther' than identified with the 'deathers' who idolize Obama at the expense of truth and reason, offering themselves as the vanguard of the future of tyranny and human self-immolation he represents.

Thanks for posting this. Keyes is so right...
Pray for America
The people of Illinois should be ashamed that they did not elect Alan Keyes as their senator.
Keyes has a great mind and is able to communicate reasoned thought to expose Obama’s culture of death. Thanks for the excellent post.
I’d rather be a dead birther than a live deather.
The Senate race might've been a good time for Keyes to force the BC issue. Sure, it wouldn't have kept Obama out of the Senate but it would've at least ended Obama's presidential aspirations if he was indeed ineligible.
That means it still has political potential, and we know this already anyhow.
Keyes is on target.
Keyes is a day late and a dollar short. Obama, on the other hand, is sitting in the Oval Office.
Carpetbagger Keyes is half the reason we're stuck with Obama in the first place.
The defenders of Obama argued that it was strange opponents were focusing on the death panels, as if this came out of nowhere. Given that he had already voted to deny medical treatment to babies born alive in botched abortions and his science czar's published statements about putting sterilization drugs in the water for population control, people have reason to be concerned about this agenda. Population control is very much a part of what they are about.
I totally agree with you. The choice could not be more stark.
