I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Deut 30:19
The greatest gift in this world is life. Nothing else is even close.

The founders understood this. Thomas Jefferson is the one who penned the miraculous phrase that forever acknowledges that Natural Rights are a gift from Our Creator.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights; that among these rights are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Try as they might, the Haters of God are not able to dislodge the connection of the Giver of Rights from the recipients of life. Rights are unalienable…like DNA and skin color…and can never be taken away. The Rights can be violated by an unlawful act, but the Right itself can never be legally taken away.

Interestingly, Jefferson listed the Rights in order of importance. Life, liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness…in that order. No Life–no Liberty. No life or Liberty? Then there can be no Pursuit of Happiness. Put these Rights in any other sequence or order, and the pillars of Natural Rights comes crumbling down.
But that is exactly what our courts have enabled the haters of God to do. They have rearranged the order of the Natural Rights. That would only be permissible in a world where there is no fixed Grantor of Rights. If courts can make rights, or eliminate rights, then no one among us is safe. But that is what the usurpers of God’s authority have done. The have rearranged the order of Creator-endowed Rights.
Because of their harrumphing at God, they have put all free people at risk. Their re-arranging of the order of Jefferson’s Rights to (1) Pursuit of Happiness, (2) Liberty, and (3) Life has turned the American experiment upon it’s head.
Refusing to acknowledge not only God’s admonition of Deut. 30:19 but also Jefferson’s authentication of Our Creator’s hierarchy of Rights, the hedonistic Pursuit of Happiness clause has morphed into the destruction of innocent life around the world.
Only a people devoid of the Spirit of God could come up with such a diabolical argument. It was the same cry that Lucifer himself uttered in his rebellion in Heaven…I will…I will..I will.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
Today’s God-haters have simply changed the refrain to MY body, MY rights, MY choice. If Pursuit of Happiness is the ultimate right, then none of our laws carry any weight. Why would it be wrong to murder someone if the Right to Life is secondary to someone’s reproductive rights?
The Bible teaches us that Jesus is the embodiment of Truth. The American left hates Truth. It is obvious to anyone with the courage to admit it. The Democratic Party in America should be called the Party of Death because two of their leading platforms support death if it gets in the way of Pursuit of personal Happiness.
Abortion kills an unborn baby. All of the legal linguistics and excuses that the God-haters use supplant the freedom of choice over the unalienable Right to Life. “Choice” is not an unalienable right. The God-haters love science and all the “evidence” it can provide to disprove the existence of God; yet they ignore ALL Medical Science, which unquestionably proves that a “fetus” is a life.
But that doesn’t matter; it is hedonistic-happiness that is paramount to the children of Lucifer…even to the denial of what is obvious to everyone. They admit that a fetus is “alive,” but that it is not “viable” or “self-aware” or “unable to live on its own.” Funny, isn’t it? That is the same position that the Left is taking in regards to the aged…because the Left loves death.
There is an indisputable link between abortion and breast cancer, but good luck getting the breast cancer deniers to trumpet that science. Breast cancer kills women. The truth should matter, but it takes a back seat to the “choice” to end a baby’s inalienable Right to Life. But why muddy the water? Pursuit of Happiness trumps Life in the Left’s hierarchy of Rights.
Homosexuality is a “death-style”; it is not a life-style. Once again, the God-haters deny the health consequences of what homosexual acts do to the body and focus all of their attention on their “right” to pursue their own version of happiness. Sit down now. I am about to say what others are too PC to say.
Homosexual acts are detrimental to both personal and public health. Treatment for many sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, casts a catastrophic financial burden on the public health system. AIDS, which is an “acquired” ailment, is a direct result of homosexual activity. Although it can be contacted through heterosexual behavior, most cases are “acquired” by men having sex with men.
The Science is clear. Here is a government website on AIDS. I report, you decide. Here’s another one that shows the leading cause of HIV infection is homosex. No biggie. The Left just denies the science. The Pursuit of Happiness trumps health…and eventually Life. Climate change deniers cannot hold a candle to homosex deniers.
Help me out here…can someone tell me why our schools spend so much time teaching our kids the dangers of smoking while we laud and encourage a far more lethal behavior of male-on-male anal sex? Smoking a Marlboro is bad, but sodomizing the Marlboro Man is worse. Thousands of innocent people around the world have gotten HIV by accident. The AIDS virus is the sexual equivalent of second-hand smoke. The Left denies and lies about any science that doesn’t fit their agenda. If you disagree with their interpretation of science, you are intolerant, bigoted, and homo-phobic.
Ask yourself this, Mom and Dad. Would you rather your child smoked a cigarette or engaged in homosex? Which of your school teaching is worse? The Left wants to separate their behavior from the consequences, no matter how many innocent have to die. Happiness is more important than Life.
The Pursuit of Happiness does not grant one the right to bring death to others. Abortion and homosex practitioners choose to deny that fact. The science shows that both behaviors result in premature death.
If abortion ended tomorrow, more babies would live. If sodomy was criminalized tomorrow, more people would live. The Science supports my position. But the God-haters love death more than Truth.
If the Science is true, why do they deny it? If Science is the measure of truth, why do we permit them to lie about it? Live by the science, die by the science. They can’t have it both ways.
