Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Darwin and Abortion to Blame for Mass Shootings

load of horse shit

What follows is a load of horseshit from Joseph Mattera, an “internationally known author, consultant, and theologian whose mission is to influence leaders who influence culture. He is the founding pastor of Resurrection Church and leads several organizations, including The U.S. Coalition of Apostolic Leaders and Christ Covenant Coalition” . . . and a consummate shoveler of horseshit (and bullshit.) 🙂

At the writing of this article, there has been another horrific mass shooting, this time in Buffalo, New York. I am convinced that one of the primary reasons for this deluge of mass shootings over the past decade is the generational desensitization of human life in general, especially with the legalization of abortion.

After all, if a nation can legalize shedding the blood of the most innocent and vulnerable among us, this can subconsciously segue to the shedding of the blood of post-birth, fully formed adult humans. A nation’s conscience and boundaries are established by what it allows through its laws and ethics.

….

According to a news report I saw on television, the shooter was allegedly a white supremacist who’d had a conversation with a black man the day before the shooting in the same parking lot of the supermarket where the shooting occurred. They had spoken about race. The black man interviewed said he had told the young man “there is only one race.”

In response, the young white man said, “there are many races.” This belief that there are many races goes along with the evolutionary perspective of Charles Darwin, who wrote On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life (1859), which purported that some species of humanity evolved more than others.

Future white supremacists like Adolf Hitler and abortion advocate/Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger utilized this evolutionary theory of various races to justify discrimination against others. While Sanger attempted to use abortion as a legal way to exterminate the so-called “negro race,” Hitler utilized gas chambers to preserve his view of a pure breed of humanity.

Biblically speaking, since all humans are made in the image of God, there is only one human race (Acts 17:26); therefore, the biblical position of the Imago Dei (image of God) is the most significant ideological position to hold against racism and all forms of human degradation, including abortion.

Regarding abortion, one of the seven sins God abhors is the shedding of innocent blood, because the (human) life is in the blood (Prov. 6:17; Lev. 17:14). Consequently, throughout church history Christ-followers have always fought for and advocated for the sacredness of human life, including humanity in its “pre-birth” and “post-birth” stages of development.

….

Hence, the equation goes like this: A culture with less regard for innocent unborn babies can equal less respect for all other humans. This results in more post-birth racism, crime, murder, rape and sexual harassment. Therefore, this erosion of societal mores makes it easier for people to objectify one another for their ends (like a mother terminating her pregnancy for economic reasons or to avoid embarrassment).

    Oh please, most white evangelicals are low-key white supremacists. They’ll swear up and down that they are not racist, but they will talk about “welfare queens” and “people who take advantage of welfare instead of getting a job” or “women having babies so they can get another welfare check” which is all code for racist beliefs.

    Raise your hand if your white evangelical upbringing taught that one of Noah’s sons was cursed (Ham) which is why black people were enslaved. 🙋‍♀️ Tell me how this isn’t racist?

    Yeah, I remember hearing about the Ham thing. It only proves that Noah was a lousy father at best,if he actually said those words Supposedly Ham did something ” gay” with Noah. According to some preachers at least. But the Evangelicals are also supposed to know the rules about New Testament conduct, that stealing land and kidnapping people just isn’t allowed, if they are honest- even if such reprehensible behavior was normal in the Old Testament.

    Speaking of which,when it comes to abortion, there lots of abortions before Roe, only it was the back alley/ kitchen table varieties for those unable to afford an abortion from an actual doctor. Many doctors did abortions as a ” side business.”. Not without risk though,as the local Vice Squads would enforce laws against abortion. Even if using the same doctors for wives and girlfriends. This goes for actors and politicians, who pay bribes. The lower classes had to tough it out with unwanted births, or the alleys. Only now, there are drones and apps that can track pregnant women, as well as a GPS in one’s cellphone. You can’t hide out like before. It looked like Indian reservations could provide the service through the IHS for a while, but right- wing governor’s have said they’ll go after them if they try. Who really pays ?? It’s the kids, who are between the sink and the harsh ways of reluctant parents ! Has anyone looked the Yahoo News page today yet ? Madison Cawthorne,with his promise of ” Dark MAGA ” coming( spoken like a true Fascist)and some Catholic woman announcing that their church is indeed coming for the contraceptives and gay marriage.

    If Christian’s want to worry about racism, crime, rape, and sexual harassment they only need to look inside their church.
