I watched another video that Luanne put up over Right on the Left Coast. She challenges us to to stand “boldly for the culture of life” after we view Barack Obama proclaiming his apparent disdain for infants; those who most refer to as a blessing. In the book of Exodus we hear of the Pharaoh and his hard heart.
But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and would not listen to Moses and Aaron
(Ex 8:15 NIV)
Take another look at the video clip. This time look a little closer and you’ll see a modern day example of a leader with a hardened heart. In that clip, Senator Obama, who half the nation seems to be looking at as presidential material, refers to an unborn child as a form of punishment. Here’s what he said in reference to sex education,
But it should also include — it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.
You know, most American’s, even those who may favor Sen. Obama over John McCain, refer to grandchildren as blessings, not punishment. And their daughters pregnancy, regardless of circumstance, as a blessing. Many American’s even refer to unborn children as blessings from God. Stunning concept, Mr. Obama, children are a blessing from God, not a punishment.
I’m raising little blessing of my own, and Sen. Obama, if you are elected next week, then you’ll have to give me a little more to go on if I’m going to be able to teach my boys respect for our president. What’s the lesson for them? We should all respect each other, unless you’re president, then you don’t have to?
Bringing this post home, I’ll refer back to Luanne’s challenge to “boldly for the culture of life.” Here’s my standing offer to you Mr. Obama and to your daughters. If they make a mistake, my wife and I have got them covered. Unburden your lives of what you refer to as punishment. We will do everything in our power to get those grand kids of yours adopted by someone who will raise them as a blessing, or we will adopt them ourselves. We’ve adopted before and other than joking a bit here and there about kid’s being punishment, we mostly just love and enjoy them.
So here you go Sen. Obama; here is my email firstname.lastname@example.org. Enough children have died already; so please, seriously, shoot me an email.
