Epic Fail

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

This guy lacks the intellectual rigor to preach Christian morality.  “If it feels good, do it” appears nowhere in the Gospels and that’s the basis of the abortion problem.

If we encourage young people to have sex, some will get pregnant.  If we make marriage optional and divorce a matter of whim, there’s low probability a pregnant young woman can look forward to a stable future with the baby’s father helping her raise their child.  If we insist young women must go to college to have careers, the pregnant ones facing an unstable family life burdened with a child, will feel compelled to terminate the pregnancy by abortion.  At that point, it does no good to say “abortion is a matter of personal choice” because the deck already is stacked to create the predictable outcome.

The chain of moral failures started in the backseat of the boyfriend’s car.  That’s where the preacher ought to focus.  He’s abdicating his moral responsibility to the unwed mother and to her unborn child.  He’s not an evangelist, he’s a hedonist.  Oh, and he’s against Trump.  How could I have predicted that?

It’s pretty much a 1:1 correlation.

  1. I think Schenck has been circling around the target, but not hitting it, for decades. What he’s saying is partially true; that his anti-abortion activism was at many points extremely loveless. And if his experience truly is that adoption is a rare exception to the rule of abortion–in reality the number is about 135,000 adopted each year with a long waiting list for healthy U.S.-born children–then we have to conclude that he was not interacting much with the crisis pregnancy centers of his area.

    And so I part ways (I have for 30 years now) both with his loveless approach in the 1980s, and for his loveless approach today. At the same time, I heartily commend the work of crisis pregnancy centers, which are (per the “backseat” comment of Joe’s) not only helping abortion-minded women keep their babies, sometimes letting them be adopted, but are also making great efforts to help young ladies and gentlemen understand what happened to get them in that proverbial backseat or motel room.

  2. “With regard to the freedom of the individual for choice with regard to abortion, there is one individual who is not being considered at all, and that is the one who is being aborted. And I have noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.”….Ronald Reagan

    And if repugnant on moral grounds……..This:
