The Inaugural

The significance of the inauguration of Barrack Obama is not lost on me.
.
I am very impressed by the tributes, accolades, celebrations, speeches, and raw emotions being expressed over the inauguration of President-elect Obama. I get all of that. I can't help but be thrilled to be a witness to history; To watch a man of African-American descent, elected to our country's highest office, as he readies himself for that responsibility, to be inaugurated tomorrow at noon. I came through the 1950's and '60's - I went to Catholic school, nuns and priests marched in Selma - therefore I was pretty much educated by the Civil Rights Movement. I'm just saying. I get this.
.
However, one things most Americans do not get is this: To date, since 1970, 50 million abortions have been performed in this country. That statistic means that more babies have been murdered since abortion was made a 'right' than the sum total of soldiers killed in all the wars the U.S. has ever fought in. United States citizens have chosen to murder 50 million persons since 1970. (Oprah never tells her audience to think about these things.)
.

A sobering reminder as we celebrate the victory of the Civil Rights Movement in the inauguration of a black man. President Obama is the most radical pro-abortion politician in history. I think the idolotry is too much. (See, Polls show Americans believe, 'He can save us!")
.
That's all.

  1. He's half black. He's an American citizen (supposedly.) But to me calling him African-American is misleading. To me, (a Canadian) the term African-American means the descendent of black American slaves.

    Am I wrong? I mean - here in Canada the fact that he's black is absolutely meaningless.

  3. Yeah, he's radically and openly pro-"choice."

    How many presidents, though, have we had that were 100% pro-life in rhetoric, but no better than Obama in practice? How many pro-life leaders have had the opportunity to do something, and done nothing? To me, that is just as grave a sin.

  8. Thinking of the unborn today.

    "By the Babe Unborn"

    by G.K. Chesterton



    If trees were tall and grasses short,
    As in some crazy tale,
    If here and there a sea were blue
    Beyond the breaking pale,

    If a fixed fire hung in the air
    To warm me one day through,
    If deep green hair grew on great hills,
    I know what I should do.

    In dark I lie; dreaming that there
    Are great eyes cold or kind,
    And twisted streets and silent doors,
    And living men behind.

    Let storm clouds come: better an hour,
    And leave to weep and fight,
    Than all the ages I have ruled
    The empires of the night.

    I think that if they gave me leave
    Within the world to stand,
    I would be good through all the day
    I spent in fairyland.

    They should not hear a word from me
    Of selfishness or scorn,
    If only I could find the door,
    If only I were born.

    January 20, 2009...an Obamanation of Abominations...person of (partial) color is elected to the highest office in the land but it is utterly ruined by the fact that he stands for the elimination of the vulnerable.

    If his father was born in Africa, and his mother was American, I don't know what that makes him if not African-American.

    Let's pray for the President of the United States, that he will be able to inspire real hope.

  11. Mr.Chesterton, say what's your blog address, I would like to add you to my blog roll. ;)

    Thom is right, how many times did good men fail to do the right thing whilst they were in office. I wonder if they really had much of a Pro- life commitment to begin with.
