You can not be a Swedish pro life midwife

Swedish midwife vows to continue her battle for the right to refuse to participate in abortion.

This lady thinks it was funny that Republican lawmakers were concerned about their friend ( she should quit, or be fired )

( The following story comes from Nebraska democrat thinks republicans-getting-shot-was-funny- 

 

It’s been just 48 hours since Republican lawmakers and their staff members were gunned down on a field in Alexandria by a Bernie Sanders volunteer while practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game. Republican Whip Steve Scalise is still in critical condition at the hospital and has undergone a number of surgeries after being shot in the pelvis.

In reaction to the attack, Nebraska Democrat Chelsey Gentry-Tipton said it was funny to watch Republicans who were on the field get emotional when recalling what happened during media interviews. After calls for a new civility, unity and her resignation, Gentry-Tipton is doubling down.

From the Omaha-World Herald:

A Nebraska Democratic Party official has refused calls to resign her volunteer position after calling reactions to this week’s shooting of a high-ranking Republican member of Congress “so funny” on social media.
Chelsey Gentry-Tipton of Omaha said in statement that she will not resign as chairwoman of the party’s Black Caucus, saying her post was taken out of context by party officials.
The Nebraska party’s leadership asked Gentry-Tipton to step down Wednesday, several hours after she wrote, in a Facebook thread about the shooting at in Alexandria, Virginia, “Watching the congressman crying on live tv abt the trauma they experienced. Y is this so funny tho?”
Later, in the same thread, she stated, “The very people that push pro NRA legislation in efforts to pad their pockets with complete disregard for human life. Yeah, having a hard time feeling bad for them.”

It is about time we call evil evil

( Billy’s thoughts below is the Breakpoint radio commentary for today. )

 

I love Dr. Seuss, but in the real world, joining hands and singing a musical number is not an effective strategy against evil.

 

Just over a year ago, Omar Mateen, claiming allegiance to the Islamic State, gunned down 49 people at an Orlando night club. It was the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. And in Europe, there have been terror attacks in Paris, Brussels, Nice, Berlin, and London.

Only one word describes the sort of carnage being perpetrated by radical Islamists: “Evil.” These attacks, which deliberately targeted innocents, all in the name of God, are among the vilest crimes imaginable.

And it only makes it more troubling that these attacks continue to take place in a time when the West is least equipped with the moral framework necessary to describe them, much less respond to them.

I’m thinking of cringe-worthy responses by celebrities like singer Katy Perry, who said on a talk show after the Manchester bombing that “the greatest thing we could do is just unite and love on each other, and like, no barriers, no borders…we all need to just co-exist.”

Jodi Picoult one-upped Perry when she took to Twitter and compared the attack to Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” “When terror attacks happen,” she wrote, “I think of the Whos…singing after Xmas is ruined. It isn’t fear/hate that changes [the Grinch], it’s love.” No, I’m not kidding, she really said that.

It should be unnecessary to say this, but as one commentator noted, Islamic terrorists don’t carry out attacks because someone was mean to them. They do it because they’ve embraced a deadly ideology that teaches mass-murder is the will of God.

Another distressing response was a television spot produced by a Kuwaiti mobile phone company. The commercial, which aired during Ramadan, depicted a suicide bomber in an explosive vest being confronted by his many victims, who urge him to “bomb violence with mercy.”

Charred and caked with blood, the procession of men, women, and children, led by an Emirati pop star, pursue the bomber, chanting in Arabic, “We will counter their attacks of hatred with songs of love, from now until happiness.”

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful that entertainers in the Middle East are trying to undermine terrorism. But we should also admit that this mawkish ad is right in line with the West’s least effective responses. The creators of both seem to imagine that all the world needs now is love, sweet love. But what they’re selling isn’t really love at all. It’s just sentimentality.

Anyone who understands the supernatural and apocalyptic claims of radical Islam should see that calling terrorists to “bomb violence with mercy” is futile. Not to mention, Islam—particularly in its radical expressions—has no grounding for mercy in the first place. It’s a very different worldview than Christianity, where mercy is grounded in God’s character, and the life of Jesus Chris, God the son.

I remember at the Colson Center’s 2014 Wilberforce Award dinner, Canon Andrew White, the “Vicar of Baghdad,” told us that he once invited ISIS leaders to dinner. While this Christian minister knows what true love in the face of evil looks like, he’s not naïve. Which is why he withdrew the invitation after ISIS informed him they would come to dinner…in order to cut off his head.

In the end, love does more than call terrorists to “just like, coexist.” True love steps between murderers and victims, names evil for what it is, fights for justice for those whose blood “cries out to God from the ground,” and prays that killers would learn to call their own acts what they really are.

Evil is evil, but the secular West, with its atrophied moral vocabulary, refuses to recognize or name evil when it shows up. I can think of few better illustrations than this that ideas have consequences and bad ideas have victims.

And this man could have been president! But remember, more than 13 million Americans wanted him in the White House.

And this man could have been president! For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

Senator Bernie Sanders apparently thinks Christians don’t belong in public office. As he was grilling Russel Vought during his confirmation hearing for a budget office position, he excoriated an article Vought wrote defending Wheaton College’s statement of faith.

Muslims, Vought wrote, “do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned.”

Now to Sanders, this was unacceptable and Islamophobic. “Mr. Chairman,” said Sanders, “this nominee is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about.”

So Sanders believes that he should exclude Vought because it is unacceptable to exclude someone for their beliefs? Logic, anyone?

But the real issue here is that Christians have always believed that “no one comes to the Father except through [Jesus].” The idea that Christians with mainstream Christian beliefs have no place in government might be the most extreme thing that this extreme politician has ever said. But remember, more than 13 million Americans wanted him in the White House.

“Son I wish I would have killed you”

The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that the parents of a child born in 2010 can sue the doctors for a wrongful birth.
The court ruled that the doctors failed to inform them,if it had been revealed would have led the mother to seek an abortion.
The 6-1 ruling by the high court is the first in the history of the state that a personal injury claim for “wrongful birth” has been recognized.
The case involves a boy from southeastern Iowa born with cerebral palsy, intellectual disability and several other impairments which require frequent doctor visits. It is also likely the boy will ever walk or talk.
The parents say they were never informed of the problems, which would have led the mother to have an abortion.
I guess this mom, and dad don’t believe all children are a gift from God.
Parents of children with special needs will tell you their children are special. A lesson I hope, and pray these parents learn. If they aren’t willing to do that perhaps they should have given up at birth.
