In the war between life and death, all eyes are on Texas as the Lone Star State legislature is poised to pass a sweeping late-term abortion ban. Gov. Rick Perry has pledged to sign the bill into law. The lines have been clearly drawn surrounding this progress toward equality and civil rights for pre-born Americans. Not surprisingly, as the pro-abortion side loses legislative battle after legislative battle, its “true colors” are coming into focus. Those colors are darker than many might have imagined.
During all civil rights struggles, there occurs, it seems, some flashpoint in time that indelibly sears into the conscience of a culture, with clarity, the profound realization that one side represents good and the other side evil. Who can forget the images in the 1960s of law enforcement officials turning the hoses – and the dogs – on peaceful African-America demonstrators for merely petitioning their government for racial equality? Millions of fence-sitters across America witnessed this gross injustice on television, sat up in their chairs, and finally said: “This is wrong. I will not stand for it.”
Although our pro-abortion media will not likely give it much coverage, a similar such flashpoint of clarity occurred this past Tuesday in the Texas State House as pro-abortion activists, throughout the day, shouted “Hail Satan!” in an effort to drown out pro-life speeches and an impromptu rendering of “Amazing Grace.” CNN’s Josh Rubin confirmed this astonishing display by tweeting on site: “Crowd of anti-abortion activists giving speeches while a group of people chant hail Satan in the background.”
I would like to take a moment to pause and personally thank our Satan-hailing friends for their brutally wicked honesty. What may have seemed, at the time, a glib bid to mock the peaceful Christians in attendance has, instead, demonstrated to the world exactly from whom (or what) derives the revolting inhumanity that is all things “pro-choice.”
Understandably, many leftists now complain that this frank display of “pro-choice” allegiance to the prince of darkness has hurt the multi-billion dollar baby-killing biz. They’re right. It has. It’s blown away the smokescreen of euphemistic “pro-choice” rhetoric and propaganda to expose, naked beneath, that which lies at abortion’s inglorious core: Death, death, and more death.
Indeed, the very Satan they hail was the first “pro-choicer.” While Jesus is “the way, the truth, and the life,” Satan is the end, the lie, and death itself. While Christ is the “author of life,” Satan is the author of abortion. Our “pro-choice” friends in Texas have now revealed that they at least intuitively recognize this reality.
Matthew 12:34-37 admonishes, “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
