Planned Parenthood & Pontius Pilate

by Steve Ray on August 27, 2015

 

Planned Parenthood and Pontius Pilate

by Dr. Edward Peters

The first Station of the Cross, “Jesus is condemned to death”, recalls one of Western history’s most iconic acts of antinomianism, Pontius Pilate washing his hands of Jesus’ blood (Matthew 27: 24). Pilate’s cowardly and contemptuous abandonment of an innocent man to death stands—and will stand till the end of time—as a warning about how easily officers of the State can betray their duty to uphold fundamental justice.

Well, the specter of Pontius Pilate walks again, this time, though law enforcement offices with jurisdiction over Planned Parenthood abortion clinics.

The first appalling videos of Planned Parenthood personnel marketing dead baby parts to fund their lust for Lamborghinis embarrassed some abortion supporters into silence and provoked others into stammering, incoherent defenses of PP’s naked barbarity.

At present, only abortion ideologues like Obama and Clinton, people who long ago hardened their hearts against truth, still stand with Planned Parenthood. But the most recent PP videos indicate that a new low has been reached and that a line of unquestionable illegality has been crossed. We are talking now about credible audio-visual evidence that statutorily defined, common law recognized cases of murder have been committed in PP “abortion” clinics.

Yes, the ghost of Pontius Pilate hovers over Planned Parenthood. The only question is whether that ghoul will be honored by law enforcement officials who wash their hands of responsibility for the innocent being handed over to a tortuous death, or, will it be repudiated by men and women who know that fundamental laws against murder should be enforced.

That question not hypothetical.

Countdown to Persecution in America

by Steve Ray on August 17, 2015

Two excellent articles (Part I and Part II and Part III). There is no doubt our society is rapidly moving away from it foundations and turning into an intolerant, secular society. When that happens Christians are the first to suffer.

Over the last few years I have been giving a talk entitled “Swimming Upstream: Living a Catholic Life in a Non-Christian World.” It is a scary talk and shocks people into awareness of what is happening around us.

The first Christians lived in a pagan Greco-Roman world. They were a despised and persecuted subculture. They were beheaded, burned alive, fed to lions and every other cruel form of torture and killing.

Within 300 years these suffering Christians turned the world upside down for Jesus Christ. But now we see right before our eyes our once “Christian society” turning against us and rapidly sliding right back into hedonistic, godless paganism.

How do we prepare? What do we do? How should we raise our children?

“For decades, a growing number of the American elite—the people who manage the media and mold the culture, run our great colleges and corporations, and train our lawyers and judges—has been gripped by a growing anger, now becoming a raging envy, against any person, group, church, or institution committed to Christian moral teachings.  Like the (ancient] Romans, these people hear Christ’s truth as an accusation.  They even see Christ’s love on the cross as their condemnation. And strangely enough, they see Christian families not as witnesses for Christ but as witnesses against them. . . . The coalition of liberal secularists and homosexual activists—let’s call them “homosecularists” for short—have some very real goals that they know they can achieve only by driving Christians out of public life.” (Speechless:  Silencing the Christians, Rev. Donald Wildmon (a Methodist minister who founded the American Family Association).

You can learn more about my talk Swimming Upstream here (also entitled Proclaiming the Gospel – same talk). Or I can bring the talk to your parish or organization. You can read these two excellent articles here: Part 1, Part II, Part III.

Expect More of this: “Religious Beliefs belong in your House of Worship or your own Home!”

August 3, 2015

First, we Christians [...]

Superpowers Rise and Fall: Where Is America on the Rise and Fall Spectrum?

May 27, 2015

By Susan Wills: George Santayana’s famous statement — “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” — would be a great subtitle for a little known essay called “The Fate of Empires” (1976) by the little known British general and historian Sir John Bagot Glubb.
