Or, the fear and loathing of the Liberal Christian within the Post-Modern Church, part 2
More than 1100 clerics and religious professionals want U.S. Senators to provide women with access to abortion – why? Because the Religious Institute, STOP RIGHT THERE. Do you know about the Religious Institute? That name, Religious Institute, sounds so safe and…religious:
“Sexuality is God’s life-giving and life-fulfilling gift. We come from diverse religious communities to recognize sexuality as central to our humanity and as integral to our spirituality. We are speaking out against the pain, brokenness, oppression, and loss of meaning that many experience about their sexuality.”
No wonder the Post-Modern Church isn’t a church anymore. But read further:
“The courageous witness of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, along with a growing body of social and scientific research, inspire us to affirm sexual and gender diversity as a blessed part of life. Religious leaders must help to create a new understanding of sexual and gender diversity, and to promote full equality of LGBT persons in all areas of religious and public life.”
Christian Voice Magazine reports that there is a letter written by these fanatical zealots from the Religion Institute to push abortion to be included in the HR3200. Particular denoms that have sanctioned this letter include the American Baptist Churches, Church of the Brethren, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Presbyterian Church, United Church of Christ, and The United Methodist Church – and that’s the short list. Most of these so-called 1100 clerics are part of the Religious Institute, an army of NONE. These clerics are from the Liberal Post-Modern Church that supports ALL sexual diversity and nothing about God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Spirit.
Getting back to the letter, it contains verbiage that simply says that the sanctity of life is not sanctified; it is in fact secondary to an active sexual diverse lifestyle:
“All persons have the right and responsibility to lead sexual lives that express love, justice, mutuality, commitment, consent, and pleasure….We support responsible procreation, the widespread availability of contraception, prenatal care, access to abortion services and intentional parenting.”
Intentional parenting is saying that the only children that are allowed to be brought to term are babies that were ‘intended’, or meaning that all other pregnancies that were allowed by God because of Sin should be aborted or avoided. This would also lean toward IVF and artificial insemination used by single women and lesbian couples because the resulting children are ‘intended’.
Responsible procreation is kind of like saying ‘intentional parenting’ a little differently but making the connotation of using birth control and abortion as a way to control the hand of God in procreation that was originally meant to be; i.e.: Husband and Wife ONLY.
“Already, federal policy unfairly prevents low-income women and federal employees from receiving subsidized reproductive health services, but the new proposals would mean that even more women and families would lose access to these vital services,” said the Rev. Debra W. Haffner, executive director of the Religious Institute.”
Subsidized means YOU PAY FOR IT. Already our tax dollars have been procured and detoured to help women get birth control and abortion. The HR3200 is a smoke screen – pundits beat on it having abortion in it when if you look at it a lot closer, you’ll see the real agenda – a Diverse Agenda.
