OUR CHRISTIAN PRESIDENT
By Lee Duigon

Our president, if that’s what he truly is, loves to proclaim himself a Christian. It’s for God to judge whether he is or he isn’t. Nevertheless, Our Lord taught us, “Beware of false prophets… Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-16)
Our president last week gave the keynote speech at a big Planned Parenthood wingding, during which he spoke the words, “God bless you, Planned Parenthood!” Which of Planned Parenthood’s works did our Christian president wish God to bless?
In 2011 Planned Parenthood murdered over a third of a million babies—333,964 of them, to be exact. It was an all-time record for baby-killing in America, facilitated by the U.S. Congress giving Planned Parenthood more than half a billion dollars earned by hard-working Americans who started life as unaborted babies.
A third of a million human beings slaughtered—that’s more than 100 times the body-count of 9/11. Think of a hundred September Elevenths. Is that what our Christian president wants God to bless?
When they’re not snuffing out babies, Planned Parenthood occupies itself with other mischief. They are intimately involved with public schooling. Under the guise of providing “comprehensive sex education,” they encourage children to be sexual active.
The rationalization always is, “Well, they’re going to do it anyway, so they might as well do it as safely as possible!” This is bad enough, but the real reason is worse. The more teens who are having sex, “safe” or otherwise, the more of them will become customers of Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills. That’s how this blessed outfit makes its money.
If there were truth in labeling, Planned Parenthood would have to re-name itself “Planned Un-Parenthood.” Everything they do is aimed at preventing the creation of families. This accounts for their fervent advocacy for promiscuous sex and, even more so, for homosexuality.
What does God say about such things? To quote just one Bible verse out of many:
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…” (I Corinthians 6:9)
That would seem to exclude a high percentage of Planned Parenthood’s core constituency—to say nothing of this president’s.
But what does Planned Parenthood say? Let’s go to one of their websites, this one supposedly set up to provide guidance for teens.
In answer to the question, “Should I come out?”—that is, to proclaim oneself a homosexual—Planned Parenthood answers, “The coming out process—letting people know who you are—can be a great experience for teens who have support from their families and communities.”
Great? Oh, yeah! Some basketball player “came out” the other day, and the way our ruling class made a fuss over him, you’d have thought he’d found the care for cancer. Our Christian president led the cheerleading, assuring the man, “We’ve got your back”—not the most well-chosen figure of speech, under the circumstances.
And what do they mean, “support from their families and communities”? If everybody listened to Planned Parenthood, families would not exist. But what kind of clueless, incompetent morally atrophied parents would ever say to their 14-year-old, “Oh, Alvin, that’s so wonderful, we’re so happy for you! We’re so pleased to know you’re enjoying such a rich sex life”? And where does “the community” come in—or is that just a word that leftist dunderheads toss around when they have nothing else to say? Maybe the town ought to provide a parade with a brass band for every kid who decides he wants to be a sodomite. But who knows what such people mean?
So, in addition to premeditated murder on a large scale, our Christian president wishes God to bless a crew who try to lead children into every kind of behavior that God has called abominable.
Maybe our Christian president ought to contemplate this passage from the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is speaking:
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23)
