Breaking the Facade

Where The Lines Overlap

By Liz Reed, Executive Director of Georgia Businesses for Life

The Girl Scouts…My initial thoughts are of my own few years in the Scouts as a young girl. Selling cookies, earning badges, going to campouts, reading Bible stories around a camp fire, spending precious time with my mother who worked 3 jobs and yet still had time for every scouting event. Those memories are probably some of the most precious that I carry with me from my childhood.

I’m certain that for most Americans, this warm, fuzzy, sentimental reaction is pretty standard when considering the Girl Scouts. It is an organization that we trust, one that we turn our daughters to in complete faith that only good things will come of it.

Which is precisely why the conservative community is expressing such an outrage to the exposure of the once-so-innocent group’s ties to and outright support of pro-abortion organizations…

Myself, Bristol Palin And The Abstinence Message

lately I’ve been accused of being a hypocrite by the pro-abort trolls that can’t seem to keep their noses out of other people’s business.

I’m a hypocrite because I advocate for abstinence even though I myself have had a child out of wedlock.

My answer to that is: So what?

Why can’t I be an advocate for abstinence? Should I stand by and let others make the same mistake I did?  I don’t think so. People make mistakes. No one is perfect. I’ve never said that I was and I never will. I made a mistake. I learned from it and with that experience its my duty to teach others.

Bristol Palin feels the same way. She became an abstinence ambassador for the Candies Foundation after giving birth to her son Tripp.She’s using her experience as an example of what not to do. I think its admirable of her to use her experience to help prevent other teens from getting pregnant. There is a great interview with her  on the Christianity Today web site.

I understand that abstinence is not for everyone. I don’t expect every teen out there to practice it. I will however continue to advocate for it, as it is the ONLY 100% effective way to prevent pregnancy. That is what I intend to teach my daughters as well. If one slips up and ends up pregnant, they will have my full support. I can’t judge them because I’ve been there myself.

If some hear the message and decide its the way they want to go, good  for them. If they don’t, I can’t force them to, but at least I have put that information out there for them instead of sitting idly by while teens are getting pregnant and turning to abortion as a solution. Two wrongs don’t make it right.

God bless.

 

 

 

 

They Said What??

I have another pro-abort gem for you: “Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy.”

What???

What kind of logic is that? Everyone knows that sex can lead to pregnancy. How can someone consent to the act and think that it isn’t consent to the consequences? This statement is more proof of how pro-aborts do not think that people need to take responsibility for their actions. Its failed logic, but then pro-abort logic usually is.

Apply that logic to other scenarios, and you can see how ludicrous it is:

“Consent to eating sweets is not consent to gain weight.”

“Consent to smoking is not consent to develop lung cancer.”

“Consent to tanning is not consent to develop skin cancer.”

“Consent to drinking alcohol is not consent to liver damage.”

“Consent to abusing drugs is not consent to brain damage.”

Anyone presented with the above would agree that each of these actions could result in the corresponding consequence. So why is sexual relations exempt?

Question for pro-aborts: Does this also mean that consent to sex makes someone exempt from the consequence of contracting a STD?

Doesn’t make sense does it? Neither does your argument about pregnancy.

 

 

 

My “LOL” Of The Day: Opposing Abortion = Wanting To Control Women

I posted this graphic today that naturally cause the pro-abort to blow yet another blood vessel:

we are liberalsAnd the response:

blood vesselHow does opposing abortion and same-sex marriage controlling anyone? If by opposing certain aspects of society is controlling, then I feel that liberals are more “controlling” than any conservative I have ever met.

I’m still trying to figure out how it makes me a racist.

If you want examples of controlling women and gays, take a look at the Muslims. That’s controlling. Yet you don’t see the liberal pro-aborts calling them out. Nope. I pointed out this fact to them once, and was immediately accused of hating Muslims.

Liberals want to control everything. They want to control your healthcare, your child’s education, your right to own a gun, the type of food you eat and the size of soft drink you can buy. They want to force us to violate our religion by forcing religious institutions to provide coverage for abortions and abortifacient drugs. The list goes on and on, but you get the drift.

Opposing abortion and gay marriage is not controlling anyone with religion. Its standing up for Morality, plain and simple.

Pro-Abort and Christian? How?

The other day I was sparring yet again with the militant pro-aborts on facebook. One page in particular feels the need to comment on every post I make. Most of the time they are attempting to harass me personally, but other times they take swipes at my Christianity.

One of the administrators of this particular page claims to be a Christian and that her morals are straight. Yet she is a pro-abort and has teamed up with a militant atheist to run a hate page.

I pointed out this particular part of scripture, and she blew a blood vessel, accusing me of judging. (Again.)

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (New Living Translation)

14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? 16 And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:

“I will live in them
    and walk among them.
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.
17 Therefore, come out from among unbelievers,
    and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord.
Don’t touch their filthy things,
    and I will welcome you.
18 And I will be your Father,
    and you will be my sons and daughters,
    says the Lord Almighty.”

How can one be a Christian with “straight morals”, yet be yoked with an unbeliever? How can you work with someone who hates your God? The only answer I can think of is: You can’t.

She countered my verse with one of her own, and advised me to follow it:

1 Peter 3:15-16 (New Living Translation)

15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. 16 But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.

Isn’t that what we as pro-lifers do? Christ is the Lord of our lives. We are  always ready to explain Christian hope to those who ask. We are always gentle and respectful to those who ask us about our faith. The last sentence of verse 16 applies more to the pro-aborts who constantly speak against  us. We have  great lives because we belong to Christ.

The word Christian means to be like Christ. How can one  be like Christ while advocating for the murder of his most beloved? Simple answer: You’re not.

Hey all, Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been dealing with illness in the house and other things that have taken up a lot of my attention. Here is a post that makes a good point. Hopefully I’ll be back in the next few days! God Bless.
