Planned Parenthood Sets Up 40 Days of Prayer for Abortion
LifeNews.Com ^ | April 10, 2012 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 04/11/2012 12:02:54 AM PDT by Zakeet

A local Planned Parenthood abortion business in California is copycatting the 40 Days for Life campaign, which recently resulted in saving the lives of more than 700 unborn children from abortion. The abortion business has set up its own 40 Days of Prayer for the local abortion center.

“We trust you to decide about your sexuality, having your children, and planning your family,” says a flier promoting the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event. “We are religious leaders who value all human life. We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.”

“We believe that human life is holy. That’s why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not,” the pro-abortion religious leaders continue. “It can be helpful to talk with friends you trust, with licensed counselors, and with whatever religious person you choose. Humboldt County Clergy are available to talk with you about the spiritual aspects of choice. Find out more by calling Six Rivers Planned Parenthood.”

“Humboldt County Clergy for Choice invite you to set aside time with your family and community to support women and reproductive justice for 40 days from March 18th through April 27th,” they say.

The flyer promotes specific prayers for abortion for each day:

Some of the local “churches” participating in the pro-abortion prayer event include: Temple Beth El in Eureka, Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Bayside, St. Francis in Fortuna, Old Town Gazebo in Eureka, and Arcata United Methodist.

Perhaps I’d be concerned about this if I knew these “religions” were true prayer warriors, that knew how to shake the threshold of heaven.

Their prayers tend to consist of what Jesus called, “much speaking”, prayer wheels and supplications to “god, whomever she might be”. If they have a few minutes here or there. Perhaps some nice thoughts. They aren’t really concerned with God, or spending time wrapped in His presence or Word, more with “social justice”.

God doesn’t hear children of wrath.

Praying to their star god of Saturn,
Molech

Acts 7.42
Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye
house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?

43. Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them:
and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

You do not serve a good cause by inaccurate information or misapplied symbolism.

The image of Kali (Parvati) in Hinduism is the goddess of slaying evil monsters (the head she is holding is that of a demon - slain) and healing. She is in fact the Hindu goddess to whom mothers pray for "health and healing for their children and during pregnancy."

While some sects worshiped her with human sacrifice that did not include children. The subject is abortion in so-called "Christian" groups.

"I Googled “death goddess” and she was one of the images that came up. Why would that be?""

Answer: Because she together with her husband Shiva (the destroyer) are, in Hindu thought, the ones by whom the world will be destroyed or end. This present age in Hindu thought is the Kali yuga (age) one of a series of universes or ages which expand and contract, the latter through destruction. They last millions of years. This is where the big bang idea came from in western thought, repackaged as evolution in the 1700s and 1800s.

The false religion of Hindism and its idolatry will be judged on the basis of the light of nature without the bible.

The clergy, who have the Bible, know what it says, like Israel will be judged on a higher basis. The evil is that the advocates of this defense of abortion profess to know the bible and to be Christian.

I understand the point you are trying to make. The fact is, however, that what is described in the original article "Christian clergy" so-called is worse than one who is an ignorant idolater without the Bible.

The people defending this - Know better.

The Thuggees worshipped Kali, and murdered incredible numbers of innocent people in her name. That’s where we get the word ‘Thug’.

Moloch is a better fit for the God of the abortionists than Kali, but Kali is hardly Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

"Some of the local “churches” participating in the pro-abortion prayer event include: Temple Beth El in Eureka, Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Bayside, St. Francis in Fortuna, Old Town Gazebo in Eureka, and Arcata United Methodist."

The churches mentioned include a synagogue - which have the Old Testament, an anti-Trinitarian, Unitarian cult – which has the Bible, and basically a Methodist group _ whom John Wesley would vomit up. All of them have the Bible, claim to have studied it and know better.

Molech who is male, the sun god, is a better fit. Antichrist is a better fit.

My point is and was: If we are going to fight these evils we need to be as accurate as possible or we will work our own failure.

I am not defending Kali, but the image does not fit here, nor serve the cause for which it is intended.

The Hindu in the day of judgment will say: "I had only the creation as a book, you had the Bible." Both are responsible, but judgment begins with the house of God

*** Warning disturbing graphics follow - especially if you are Pro-Choice ***

The second four weeks of development is a time of extremely rapid and crucial development as the embryo quadruples in size. Its cells are constantly differentiating to form new structures. The brain begins controlling the movement of muscles and organs. The brain waves can be detected and recorded. The head is growing rapidly to accommodate the enlarging brain. The embryo's head is still very large in comparison to the body and is bent forward on the chest. The body begins to straighten and elongate. All major organs develop- the stomach, liver, spleen and intestines. The heart takes on its final form and beats strongly. It beats at 140 to 150 beats per minute, which is twice the rate of ours.

That "St. Francis" church on the pro-abort flyer is actually:

St. Francis Episcopal Church

Fortuna, CA 95540
(707) 725-4686
email: St.FrancisFortuna@gmail.com

The pastor, Rev. Jeri Gray-Reneberg, is married and the mother of two daughters, is a past board member of Six Rivers Planned Parenthood and a present member of Clergy for Choice. She is also an anti-violene activist.

I strongly recommend writing, e-mailing, and phoning, and letting them know (in the nicest possible way) that what they are doing is

Seriously.

Thank you.

Dear St. Francis Episcopal Community,

I was very happy to see you doing 40 Days of Prayer "for women everywhere." Very good!

I respect the Episcopal Church, I feel certain I too will receive a respectful hearing when I share what’s on my heart.

Thinking about these kids that get killed by guns, I thank God that we as justice-loving Christians stand together in opposing attitudes which dehumanize, demean and debase. We in the minority community lose far too many of our “next generation”: to violence, drugs, jail and crime. We need to value our “next generation” --- and abortion rights does not do this. Abortion rights dehumanizes, demeans and debases.

It dehumanizes our next generation. The very ones we should be saying, “They are ours from Day One! They are human from the Git-Go! They are never less than human!”

We oppose the racist assumptions which deny and take life. How would anyone dare to say our children are not gifts from the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life? How would anyone dare to say they can be torn from their mama’s womb and killed?

Our daughters are tempted by an inherently racist “choice” that says it’s all right to destroy your children if they are unwanted. They need to reach out for our help to say “No Way!”

Aren't our kids killed on the street because they are unwanted?

And aren’t we all wanted by God? So none of our children are unwanted.

I pray for “women everywhere” to have the POWER and DOWNRIGHT STUBBORN DIGNITY to say “No” to abortion violence and “No” to gun violence “Yes” to life for every one of their precious babies without exception.

Abortion, that's just saying, “OK I give up, let's do a little more killing.” Come on, we can do better than that.

Sincerely,

[signed]

It's about celebrating sin, championing a life of free sex (whether it be hetero, homo, or incestuous). The Sex Positive Agenda is about celebrating the orgasm (see Reich and his "orgone accumulator") and ending ALL moral judgments over ALL sexual pairings regardless of sex, age, relation, marital status, number, or species of partner(s).

There is nothing religious about it, just a celebration of the here and now without guilt or conscience, no matter what the cost to the psyche or dead bodies left in the wake.

You got that right ... unfortunately.

Incidentally, do you remember the time when Ann Richards got a face lift?

When she came out from under anesthesia, the doctors told her they had some bad news and some good news.

The bad news ... you're still a wrinkled old hag that's ugly as hell.

The good news ... we still managed to harvest enough skin for a wallet, a purse, a hat band, a belt, and two pairs of boots.

Spot on!

This (bogus) effort by this California Planned Parenthood affiliate group, is sham and hypocrisy. Their prayers will not reach the Triune God.

I am reminded of Shakespeare’s, “Hamlet.” Hamlet’s father was the king until his brother (Hamlet’s uncle) murdered him to take over the Throne. Starkly reminded and haunted of his murderous sin, the king (Hamlet’s uncle) rushed into his chamber and attempted to pray. As he looked up, he (pathetically and, correctly) exclaimed:

“.....My words fly up, my thoughts remain below; words without thoughts, never to heaven go.” Need it be said that the usurping king in Shakespeare’s Hamlet could not legitimately offer true prayer because he had blood on his hands and did not repent of his treacherous actions, against God’s Commandments and against his fellowman?

In short - this Planned Parenthood group is abusing the privilege of prayer, and increasing God’s loathsome displeasure of them [Psalm 7:8-17 - especially verse, 11]
