Great stuff article over on DaringLutheran by Pastor Michael Schuermann concerning the speech made by President Obama at Planned Parenthood. His work on this is a fine example of boldness in the face of a world gone mad, calling evil good and good evil.
President Obama spoke to Planned Parenthood this morning (Friday, April 26th). He said all sorts of things. Yet what was most galling, at least in my mind, is how he ended his speech. Here’s what he said: (source)
“As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” said Obama. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”
No, Mr. President. You have authority from God to exercise your leadership of the country for the good of its citizens. You have authority from God to call out an organization which exists in order to murder – and advocate for the ever-increasing “legality” of such murder – the most helpless among us, namely the unborn (or even the born).
Mr. President, you must repent. Your office – given to you from God – demands that you protect the unborn. This will be unpopular. I imagine your own party will abandon you, maybe even your closest friends and family. Do and say what is right, Mr. President.
And in the meantime do not dare to offer up the Lord’s name in vain. Do not invoke the name of He who gives and loves life as some perverse blessing over an organization that is a source of such evil and death. Mr. President, repent. God does not bless evil, Mr. President. He hinders and destroys it.
May God hinder the wicked plans of Planned Parenthood, President Obama, and all those who are like-minded, that their evil plans may come to nothing. And may He bring them all to repentance and faith in His saving Gospel – trusting in Christ’s forgiveness – that they may have eternal life. Amen.
