Minister Celebrates “Morally Good” Abortions

While America’s leftward societal slide has ushered in a disturbing acceptance of abortion, certain segments of the population continue to firmly stand up for the unborn. Among these pro-life activists are millions whose belief in the sanctity of life is guided by their faith in God.

Unfortunately, our culture of death has even permeated throughout some Christian denominations. A recent example of this immoral trend is found in an opinion article published in the Huffington Post.

Written by Donna Schaper, a United Church of Christ minister, the article insinuates that expectant mothers can actually perform the will of God by killing their unborn children. Somehow, she is able to reconcile this barbaric belief with the Holy Bible’s imperative against murder.

“What is it about women that the religious right can’t tolerate?” she wrote, purposefully obfuscating the conservative argument against abortion. If men were able to bear children, those with a faith-based aversion to the murderous act would be just as vehemently opposed to it.

Schaper contended that abortion “can be a highly moral choice for a woman,” which should be enough to prompt any so-called church to send her packing. Unfortunately, leftist propaganda has replaced scriptural guidance in too many American houses of worship.

The author continued by trashing Hobby Lobby, a Christian-owned retail chain that has been at the forefront of ObamaCare’s employer mandate requiring abortion coverage in approved healthcare plans.

“It is sad as well to see the constant struggle – now initiated by a toy and hobby company – about women being choice making human beings,” she wrote. It appears that our nation has entered a bizarre realm in which the business world offers greater moral guidance than those tasked with spreading God’s word.

Of course, the vast majority of Christian leaders are righteously opposed to the abhorrent practice of abortion. Still, to the casual observer, arguments made by the likes of Schaper can form a false impression of what it means to follow Christ.

She claimed women can “have morally good abortions because we are human beings, with God-given rights to human agency, just like men.” Her gender warfare rhetoric notwithstanding, this baseless assertion alleges that God actually approves of the destruction of babies formed in His image. Castigating those who advocate “[m]andatory childbearing,” Schaper said that proponents of life are responsible for making “the woman a hostage to the will of others….”

Those called into ministry must be held uniquely accountable for their presentation of God’s instruction. As Schafer and her ilk continue to bastardize the Holy Bible with their own radical views on abortion, they will not only face the indignation of true believers, but will face judgment for their actions upon leaving this world.

Video: New Video Offers A Glimpse Inside Federal Agency’s Lavish Las Vegas Conference

(CNN) — Congressional investigators are accusing the General Services Administration of violating its employee gift limit with rewards of iPods, digital cameras and other electronics, just as a video emerged of a lavish conference that shows employees drinking and making jokes about wasteful spending.

The video, first obtained by The Huffington Post on Friday, offered a glimpse inside the agency’s $820,000 conference in Las Vegas. An administration official confirmed the authenticity of the video and provided a copy to CNN.

Reports of the lavish conference have prompted taxpayer outrage, embarrassed the administration and put a spotlight on the wasteful spending by the agency that acts as a real estate agency for the federal government.

“These videos reinforce once again the complete lack of judgment exhibited during the 2010 Western Regions Conference,” said Greg Mecher, a GSA spokesman. “Our agency continues to be appalled by this indefensible behavior, and we are taking every step possible to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.”

The latest news comes just days after the Office of the Inspector General documented massive overspending by the GSA. The fallout from the report’s revelations has sparked a congressional investigation and seen the GSA chief step down, two other employees fired and a number of others suspended.

Liberal Women Not Breeding Are Something To Be Thankful For

Lizz Winstead Liberal Women Not Breeding Are Something to Be Thankful For

Lizz Winstead, is a comedienne and television “personality” I’ve never heard of. She’s been involved in a number of liberal TV and radio productions. In 2003, she co-founded and served as the program director at the defunct Air America Radio network. Since 2005 she has been a contributing blogger at the liberal Huffington Post.

She has a new book coming out in May. We got a hint of its content when she was interviewed by Ed Schultz on his radio show. She ranted that being married and having children was “indentured servitude.” Good for us. Self-imposed liberal birth control is sounding more appealing to me.

I’m so thankful that Cher only had one child who will never have children. Is this a mean thing to say? I didn’t chop her up. I didn’t make her what she wants to be. “Chaz” Bono is the poster child for the future of liberalism – neutered.

ForgeryGate: New Sheriff Calls For Roundup Of Obama Records

Jerome Corsi crop SC ForgeryGate: New Sheriff Calls for Roundup of Obama Records

A presentation by WND’s Jerome Corsi to a standing-room-only crowd has convinced a New Jersey lawmaker and a local sheriff that the issue of President Obama’s eligibility for office “will have to be addressed.”

“The easiest way to put this to rest is to have the records unsealed,” Morris County Sheriff Ed Rochford told the Huffington Post in an email following the April 4 event in Morristown. “Mr. Corsi made a very convincing argument that President Obama may not be a natural born citizen of the United States.”

Likewise, New Jersey Assemblyman Anthony Bucco, R-Boonton, said Corsi’s speech leaves doubts about Obama’s citizenship status. He told the website it is not his place to determine whether Obama is a citizen, and he believes “a higher authority” must resolve the issue.

“I am not in a position to say what he put up on screen is demonstrative of evidence; that is for the court of law,” Bucco said. “This issue has not resolved itself. It won’t until some higher authority is involved.”

The evening was organized by Billy Baer and Dan Haggerty, who cohost the radio program “The Baer Haggerty Offensive” on Repatriot Radio broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM in Philadelphia. Corsi told a crowd of 250 people: “The mainstream media has not given this fair treatment. But this is not going away. We really don’t know who our president is.”

Time to Fire Eric Holder

Susan Stamper Brown, FloydReports.com

During a recent speech at the American Constitution Society (ACS), United States Attorney General Eric Holder lauded our American civilian court system as “our most effective terror-fighting weapon.” Holder’s address, along with his whole attorney general career, reflects a flawed ideology that believes wrapping enemy combatants in the American flag will somehow steer them towards full disclosure.

We are fooling ourselves to believe our enemies aren’t smart enough to use habeas corpus against us — which the Constitution does not extend to non-citizens held outside U.S. boundaries. While the good cop routine might work on some of the more impressionable, the determined fanatics will take advantage of the situation. Sometimes you need a “Jack Bauer” to intervene to make these people sweat.

Holder’s implied moral high ground originates from the assumption that captured enemy combatants will be mistreated – unless they are blanketed by the security of our Constitution. Holder fails to recognize that our military is bound by the same Constitution, as well as the Geneva Convention.

The last time I checked, those who strayed away from their obligations to constitutional rule of law were duly convicted of crimes. Their actions, along with those of Attorney General Holder, do nothing but undermine the efforts of so many charged with keeping the rest of us safe from the criminals they imprison.

A lack of confidence in the military tribunal system seems to pervade the Justice Department under Holder as service members assigned to Guantanamo Bay do their duty honorably and faithfully, every day.

Case in point is the recent indictment of….
