Im always intrigued by the responses pro-lifers get for showing graphic photos of aborted babies in front of pro-abortion churches on Sunday mornings. I hope these protests continue and expand. Parishioners may not understand, but pro-lifers are trying to help them. Their worship services are repugnant to God. Just read Isaiah 1:10-17.
In September World Life Organizations Todd Bullis and Andy Moore and their team stood for the 11th and 12th time in front of the Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano, Texas. Im always impressed by the wise, Godly words they have ready to offer.
Church members walking past the signs either ignored them, expressed support for abortion, or got angry, such as one man youll see on the first video who absolutely refused to believe UMC is pro-abortion. Todd told me the man followed up with a phone call but still denied the truth even after Todd led him online to the denominations statement.
The pastor at Custer Road, Dr. Ronald D. Henderson (pictured left), engaged in the worst form on deception, claiming from the pulpit his church and denomination support(s) life and we believe in the sacredness of life and the sanctity of life from the cradle to the grave.
Pro-lifers will immediately pick up on the bait and switch. Cradle is post-birth, of course.
But did his parishioners? I doubt it.
On September 23, Todd and Andy preached with their signs at a church historic to the abortion movement, the home of Roe v. Wade, according to one parishioner.
Pastor Daniel Kanter of the First Unitarian Church of Dallas is even on the board of Planned Parenthood of North Texas, and he was quite bothered by the pro-life protest
Saynsumthns Blog points to a sermon Kanter gave in February entitled, For the Goddess of Love.
Raised in an Evangelical Bible church all my life, Im shocked at the milquetoast and utter falsehoods taught by churches such as these.
That said, we must remain vigilant that our own churches remain firmly anchored.
They can switch to the more "Sunday friendly" picture of a real baby... put the words "your church supports killing children this size!"
The pro-life protesters should take it a step further, and proclaim that those pro-abortion churches worship Moloch, not God or Jesus. They are “churches of Gehenna.”
Moloch figures in the Book of Deuteronomy and in the Book of Leviticus as a forbidden pagan god. In the Hebrew Bible, Gehenna was initially where apostate Israelites and followers of various Baalim and Caananite gods, including Moloch, sacrificed their children by fire.
In Jewish, Christian and even Islamic scripture, Gehenna is a destination of the wicked.
“Again, you shall say to the Sons of Israel: Whoever he be of the Sons of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that gives any of his seed l’Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. And I will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people; because he has given of his seed l’Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do at all hide their eyes from that man, when he gives of his seed l’Molech, and do not kill him, then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go astray after him, whoring l’Molech from among the people.”
It's an image that will stay with me until my dying day.
If anti war types can show photos of dead and maimed children there’s *no* reason why similar types of photos can’t be used by pro life people.The left can’t have it both ways.
It should be shown on medical tv shows the same as a knee surgery.
I don’t believe that the UMC as an organization is pro-abortion. Xzins is a respected member of the UMC and can clarify
the unitarians are not Christians, they don't consider Jesus Christ the way we do as God.
As our old reggie the b unitarian can confirm, the UU are not to be considered a Christian organization
I view the UMC the same way that Obiwan Kenobi viewed Mos Eisley Spaceport: "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."
Hi Cronos. While the UMC has made great strides in its position since the late 70’s, when it was clearly pro-abortion, at best it can be seen as rape, incest, and life & health of the mother. Because of the weakness of definition of rape, incest, and health of the mother, I consider that position now, as opposed to my younger years, as limited pro-choice. When younger, I saw it as limited pro-life.
We have consistently progressed in the direction of a truly pro-life direction and away from a radical pro-abortion position, but we meet as a denomination only once every 4 years and that only for slightly less than 2 weeks. With a denomination that is about 65-35 conservative/liberal, it is a slow process of change.
There is no body or person in charge of the UMC in between those 4 year intervals. We have no over-bishop or central committee. We have only a judicial council that during the 4 year interval make judicial decisions (like the supreme court) about what the every-four-year General Conference rules.
Within regional bishop areas (called annual conferences) the regional bishop guides only that section and is also subject to the interpretations of the judicial council.
