The concept of pro abortion and catholic. The concept is bizarre. These issues must be cleaned up.
How simple a concept,,, How tortured by the world.
Being just plain mean as never yielded results that I have seen.
Abortion at all is a terrible thing. We should all do our best to prevent situations where it is even phathomable. But above all, just like the soldiers in a war we do not approve, we must lift up the women faced with such tragedy and guide them back to abundant self worth and Love.
So I am just minding my own business and this cars’ bumper screams at me. I did not catch it at first so I stopped to take a look. Yes for sure the bumper sticker was yelling at me and making no sense, but making it loudly. As I bent over to slap the sticker, I realized the owner probably did not even get the ridiculousness of their own speech.
Do Certain Zealots just not care?
Now I belong to the catholic church. All that word means is universal and as in harmony, for the love of Christ. Catholic the proper name of a church organization has something like 15 recognizable factions that are not in harmony. Most westerners recognize the Popes’ church in Vatican City in Rome, of course they are called Roman Catholics and they are by no means accepted as universal. Catholic was a very smart name to choose for a church. So many use it. But have no doubt the proper name is not synonymous with the notion of universal worship of Christ.
Abortion in this case is the ending or aborting of life. It has not negative or positive connotations of it’s own. Lives of all creatures cease or are aborted for many reasons. Certainly picking a head of lettuce aborts the lettuce’s life. Aborting a military mission is clearly elevating the mission to a living thing. But that is OK, it makes it’s point.
Nonsensical at best, harmful and hurtful at least.
Distancing ourselves from those in travesty, is harmful and just down right ugly.
Now I am not afraid to speak of the issue of abortion so I have spoken to many about it, as relates to a woman and an unborn child. Judges, Doctors, women that have them, Priests and health officials on the periphery. I swear I have never met a single person or even heard of them that are pro or for abortions. (caveat here is China – strange workings over there).
Pro-abortion does not exist in reasonable minds. Even if they felt that way they would not confess it publicly. There is no pro-abortion group. There is not a pro-abortion movement in the West. So most assuredly you could be a devout Catholic and pro-abortion and you could be Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hide. Because of the ridiculous claim of the sticker it requires a ridiculous explanation.
Why would a Christian rub salt in wounds already too much to bear.
I think it was Dobie Grey that sang “Drift Away”. I wish I could be there for any young woman who has been damaged by such careless words that hurt so bad, and just give em a beat so they can drift away from this sometimes heartless world.
Now back to where I started, the owner of the sticker probably does not know fully the concepts involved in their sticker. But somebody does and someone is really messing with heads of less sophisticated individuals. Someone produced that sticker and convinced the buyer to promote the idea thereon by displaying in on their car. That is really sad. And I think it shows that someone is full of hate. And you cannot be filled with hate and be catholic or Catholic. The really nice thing about that bumper sticker is that it shows hypocrisy at it’s finest. Just think of the 14 year old girl that was beaten and raped by her brother and injured so bad that carrying the fetus to full term would 90% cause death of both. Forget if it is right or wrong in the situation, irrelevant to my point. Think of the harm that bumper sticker could cause her and her fragile self. Christian catholic or not are clearly not to act in such a flagrant and clear case of hate. I am disgusted and embarrassed regardless of the underlying issue. And just to be clear – My adopted father was a doctor, a woman came to him for an abortion. Between them they chose against it and my father agreed to adopt her child, his wife agreed. About 8 months later I was brought home to live a life of abundance and grace. So I have my own bent, but I could not imagine hurting others to drive it home.
Elvis is and was cool.
Do you reach out?
Do you ever chose to do harm for a cause?
The cost of Cancer Cures
I was just minding my own business and actually in great health and along came a real bad gut ache. It took too long to diagnose the problem and by then I was Stage 4, non-hodgkins lymphoma with pancreatic involvement.
It was truly looking like a waste of time and money to "save" me from death by the disease. I mean it made sense just to die without all the cost and bother. But for some reason I never even considered dying. I do not know why for I am fairly practical and logical. But the alternative to fighting to live never really crossed my mind. And that was after I understood the pain and disabilities I would suffer.
In other words my choices were made without a notion of not doing all I could to live.
I think that likewise my father as a medical doctor when a woman came to him for an abortion, grasped logical alternatives to giving birth to a baby, but he never considered it an option. And so I was born and adopted by him.
But I cannot try to harm those making such decisions for themselves. I just cannot consider attacking them. Pray for them, help them, love them but cause them harm is just inconceivable.
The above sticker reflects the worst of all Christians. And they even cause me harm.
Right here are two guys that logically should not exist.
Let us conclude with some clear concepts
Taking the life of a living being is bad.
Taking away someone's right to live is bad.
Harming others in order to prevent the bad is also bad.
Some people are faced with decisions where all options are bad.
We hope that they can find the option that provides life.
We should want to help these people and love them.
Attacking and saying hurtful things to them or about them is not good.
And yet we all must do what we feel is right.
We are not alone in this world and we are not the judges of people of this world. No one anywhere has given anyone that right. However in proper places and circumstances where harm will not be caused we must stand tall and firm and fight for our strongly held belief.
Why would a person who would abhor civilian casualties in any war cause casualty to those affected by this topic? I would hope they would not develop a scorched earth policy and harm young struggling people who have it hard enough as it is.
