Child Prostitution and Infanticide on Your Dime

Arizona recently passed a law barring tax payer funds to Planned Parenthood, an organization entirely dedicated to the abortion mill business.  In point of fact Planned Parenthood is so dedicated to providing abortions that, as recently documented by conservative bloggers (including James O’Keefe) they are willing to collude in child prostitution.  As if that were not enough, Planned Parenthood was begun (and continues in its mission) to abort as many minorities (especially blacks) as possible.  I suppose most people would want to avoid funding an organization that directly supports child prostitution and genocide.

Well, if you don’t like who your funds are going to, to whom do you turn?  Under U.S. law you turn to the legislature, of course, for as we all learned in Civics 101 (back when that was still taught) it is the legislative branch that holds the power of the purse.  Hence, if you want to change funding priorities, elect legislators who will act accordingly, which is just what the voters of Arizona have done.

Enter U.S. District Judge Neil Vincent Wake.  Upon hearing Planned Parenthood’s grievance that the state of Arizona has declined to fund their practice, Judge Wake has taken it upon himself to rule that Arizona MUST fund Planned Parenthood.  I suppose this is why Civics 101 is no longer taught:  It no longer applies.  Funding decisions are now made by the (unelected) judiciary.

A few thoughts on this:  1)  This is taxation without representation.  Judge Wake is NOT a representative, yet he has decided how tax funds must be allocated (and they cannot be allocated without being collected).  2) Judge Wake has decided that tax dollars are best spent on the support of infanticide, child prostitution and genocide.

MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL:  Judge Wake was appointed to the bench by (drum roll please) President George W. Bush.  That’s right, it was not Obama, Clinton or Carter who foisted this champion of pedophilia upon us, it was none other than the ostensibly “compassionate conservative” President George W. Bush.

So what do we learn?  Your guess is as good as mine, but this is not the free country you and I have always been told it is.

Children of Wrath

The U.S. per-capita rate for violent crime in 1960 stood at 160.9 (per 100,000).  Then the rate suddenly exploded, reaching a high in the early 1990s of 758.1, an increase of just over 470%.  Today the rate stands at approximately 403.6, something of an improvement over the early 90s, but still far in excess of what was the norm fifty years ago.  Looking at these rates one has to ask what could account for such an outpouring of violence?  How did we become a Clockwork Orange society, and is it possible to reverse the trend?

In Ephesians 6, Paul the Apostle wrote:

1

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Col. 3.20

2

Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;

3

that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. Ex. 20.12 · Deut. 5.16

4

And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: Col. 3.21 but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

 

In 1969, then Governor of California Ronald Reagan signed into law the nation’s first “no fault” divorce legislation.  The rest of the states quickly followed suit, and “no-fault” divorce became the norm across the country, with a resultant uptick in the divorce rate from 10% to 50%.  Along with this uptick in divorce came the exclusion of fathers from their children’s lives as “family court” (as if) judges awarded custody to mothers in over 90% of divorces, without regard to who filed the divorce (after all, it IS “no fault”).

The Biblical admonition from Paul hearkens back to Moses, and Moses hearkens back further himself.  Paul said that honoring one’s parents is the “first commandment”, yet it is NOT the first commandment of the Ten Commandments.  How then is this command the “first commandment”?

The command to honor one’s parents was the first of the Ten that dealt specifically with man’s relationship to his fellow man.  Preceding commandments, such as the admonitions against blasphemy and idolatry, dealt with man’s relationship to God.  The very first law that a child learns is the law of his parents.  If he ignores that law and disregards that authority then he will learn obedience to no other law.  If a child holds his parents in contempt then the church, school, and civil government need expect no respect for their authority.

Since the passage of no fault divorce we have raised a generation of children whose fathers have been forcibly excluded from their lives.  It is the responsibility of the father, first and foremost, to teach children to avoid the path of wrath.  Yet we live in a time where men believe we can raise peaceable children in the absence of fathers.  The result of that experiment is now being seen in the bloodshed that stains our nation.

Finally, consider that children are told to honor their parents so that it “may be well” for them, and that they “may live long on the Earth.”  Our national rate of bastardy now stands at over 50% for births to women under age 30, an all-time high since records have been kept.  Couple this with the fact that our divorce rate stands at around 50%, and what we have created is a society where children who have a father in their home have become a minority; and a minority which is rapidly shrinking.  The outcome of fatherless children will inevitably be a generation of wrath.  In removal of fathers from the home our leaders have sown the whirlwind, and now are praying for a crop failure.
