A lion? You’re kidding, right?

Youre kidding rightA lion? You are kidding, right? You’re outraged over the killing and beheading of a lion – even feverishly so – and with heartfelt concern for international justice you are considering Zimbabwe’s demand for extradition of the American citizen who did it?

This has to be a joke. You’re serious?

Mr. President, weren’t there some videos released recently revealing, undeniably, the Nazi-like practices of Planned Parenthood – routine transactions caught on film and illuminating giddy doctors sifting through fetal remains calling out body parts like a nightmarish game of sinister bingo? These were not blobs of cells, Mr. President. Look at the photos. Watch the videos. These were clearly and definably, infant children. Tiny fingers and toes attached to mangled little arms and legs. Eyeballs protruding from petite but crushed skulls. And based upon some of the discussions in the videos as well as reports with regard to videos yet to be released, there is the high probability that this has been happening to little ones who were born alive and could have survived outside of the womb with proper medical care. Does this not bother you, even if only a little? Does it call for justice? Does it call for anything at all, or is it too humdrum and better left to the attention of others because it already happens thousands of times a day in America, because it deals with human life and does not rise to a level of presidential priority as celebrity zoological life apparently does?

A lion? Really?

Isn’t there an American pastor, Saeed Abedini, being imprisoned in Iran for nothing more than speaking about Jesus, a man whose family has been petitioning you to seek after his release ever since he was detained in 2012? By the way, weren’t you just in a rather detailed brokering with Iran, one of such incredible gravity that working this man’s release into the details would have been as significant as asking the Iranian ambassador to pass the salt?

A lion? A beast of the field? Really?

Wasn’t there a young woman, Kathryn Steinle, killed recently by an illegal alien and convicted felon who’d already been deported five times and yet was continually allowed shelter in one of the so-called sanctuary cities that you’ve instructed your Justice Department not to challenge? Have you phoned the Steinle family to comfort them and to assure them of justice as you did Michael Brown’s? Are you aware of the troubling contrast of these images? Does it concern you?

You want justice for a lion?!

There are people around the world being crucified, stoned, beheaded, burned alive, thrown from buildings, strapped to explosives, hacked limb from limb, drowned in cages, sold as sex slaves… and all because they bear the title “Christian.” This…THIS…is international injustice! Look! Open your eyes and look!

Mr. President, clearly you are insane. And as I’ve written here before, what you are doing remains indefensible. You are willingly and deliberately choosing the wrong sides as our executive leader. You are choosing to stand with the lions, the predators, the monsters.

I will continue to pray for you, Mr. President, just as my Lord through His Word has instructed me to do (1 Timothy 2:2). I will pray for Divine wisdom’s hand to guide you, to lead you to seek a better way, to urge you to engage with a more acute consciousness. Within these same prayers, I will continue to ask my Lord to strengthen His body, the church, that she would remain steadfast in the Faith in the coming days and always. Indeed, the courage required of her for facing the monsters has been and continues to be comparable to that of the young shepherd boy, David, who spoke with an unearthly confidence before stepping out to face the colossal Goliath: “For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God? …Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them…” (1 Samuel 17:26, 36). And again, as the king: “Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war arise against me, yet will I be confident” (Psalm 27:3).
