The internet is truly a strange place. Two online tactics are shaming and flaming. These techniques are used to destroy reputations, destroy livelihoods and even to destroy lives. Just ask the dentist Walter Palmer who has now received numerous death threats.
You’ll recall he was the lion hunter that accidentally killed Cecil the lion. I say accidentally because he paid handsomely for a local guide whose job it was to keep him from taking any illegal shots at any protected animals. So the real accusations should be against the lion hunting guide whose name oddly enough we do not even know. Instead the dentist is vilified. As the death threats against Palmer pour in, he has been forced to shutter his dentistry practice and has essentially gone into hiding as a raving mob calls for his blood.
What’s wrong with this picture? I find it more than coincidental that just before the Cecil the lion story broke, the revelations had begun to unfold that Planned Parenthood was deep in the business of selling baby body parts after they finish butchering the babies in their abortuaries. Did you notice that Cecil the lion story quickly overtook and completely buried the Planned Parenthood scandal even though those videos have continued to come forth every week for the last eight weeks?
In the main stream media there is hardly a peep about the scandal of Planned Parenthood. Cecil the lion is big news, but the horrors of Planned Parenthood are so hidden you would not even knew it took place were it not for the alternative media.
A victory for free speech in California ensured that the Center for Medical Progress could release its latest video this week with even more incriminating evidence against Planned Parenthood and a company that buys baby parts from them, StemExpress. The realities of what happens every day in abortion facilities at the hands of those who have no respect for the dignity of life is shocking. Thankfully, the judge lifted a temporary restraining order on video footage of a meeting with the CEO of StemExpress. Her cavalier attitude toward “harvesting” baby parts, and even intact babies, underscores the barbarism of Planned Parenthood’s grisly business.
Whether it’s the CEO’s request of “another fifty livers a week,” or her mockery of the horrified responses of lab technicians who open packages of intact babies, it is no wonder StemExpress wanted this footage kept from the public. The CEO implicitly contradicts Planned Parenthood’s facade of caring about women’s health: “Planned Parenthood has volume,” she says, “because they are a volume institution.” Most people, she adds, “don’t want to know where it comes from.” But “we know what it is.”
America is beginning to wake up to the horror of abortion, in which babies are regularly torn apart, or even being “harvested” intact. We’re seeing the evidence that babies may even be delivered alive before being cut up for their most profitable body parts.” (FRC)
On the same day that Cecil the lion died in Africa, in America more than three thousand innocent babies were tortuously torn limb from limb in their mother’s womb. Indeed the most dangerous address in America today is the womb of your own mother. I think it is clear that the narrative of the main stream media could be summarized with this: ‘save the lions, butcher and kill the baby humans.’
How have we come to this cruel state in America? It is because a revolution has taken place in the minds of far too many. It is a revolution centered on the answer to one seemingly simple question and that is this ‘what is man?’ The answer to this question makes a world of difference. The Bible clearly answers this question in the very first chapter of the Bible.
Created in the Image of God – Genesis 1:26-28:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Man is distinct from all other beings God created. Man is not simply just another animal on earth. Only when we realize this reality will every human life receive the respect they deserve.
