Monetizing a Dead Animal But Ignoring Live People…

cecil_3394332bI heard an interesting snippet on NPR yesterday.  A Zimbabwean was asked what he thought about Cecil the Lion’s death and he responded that he didn’t have time to worry about a dead lion, he was having trouble getting enough money to feed his family.

But that’s not what the world cares about.  No, the world cares about making a profit.

Honour Cecil the lion with a gold-plated engraved HTC One M9 – yours for £24,000.

What perversity. How about you take you massive disposable income and adopt a Zimbabwean…  When we care more about a stupid lion than we do human beings, we’re jerks.

Israeli Settlers Set a Palestinian House on Fire and Burned a Baby to Death

Out RAGEOUS!

sickSuspected Israeli settler attackers torched a Palestinian home in the occupied West Bank on Friday, killing an 18-month-old child and seriously injuring his parents and older brother in an act that Israel’s prime minister described as terrorism. The house in Duma, a village near the city of Nablus, had its windows smashed and fire bombs thrown inside shortly before dawn as the family slept, the military and witnesses said. Graffiti in Hebrew reading “revenge” was scrawled outside, below a Star of David.

The child’s parents and four-year-old brother were flown by helicopter to an Israeli hospital where they were said to be in serious condition, officials said. A second house in sick2the village was also set ablaze, but no one was home. Several hundred people marched at his funeral procession calling for retribution. “With our souls and blood we shall redeem you, martyr,” they chanted as the child’s flag-draped body was carried through the village for burial.

What animals.  What vile animals. These cruel beasts need to experience punishment to the fullest extent of the law.  Human beings don’t act that way.

What Utter Perversity: The Methodist Pastor Who Thinks Objecting to Abortion is ‘Idolatry’

Talk about calling good, evil and evil, good… this Methodist guy has that down to an art:

The United Methodist Church has been a subject of controversy for years as it supports legalized abortion within the context of supposedly being a Christian denomination. Now, one pro-life advocate has uncovered a quote from a Methodist pastor who says that caring about unborn babies who die in abortions is “idolatry.”

Sarah Terzo, who has a knack for documenting the history of the abortion debate and the abortion advocacy movement by posting quotes from pro-abortion activists through the years, posted a new quote today that features Minister John M Swomley.

Swomley  is an ordained United Methodist minister, Terzo explains and, from 1960 to 1984 he was professor of Christian Ethics at St. Paul’s school of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri. At the time he was active in ministry, he was president of Americans for Religious Liberty and a longtime board member and sometimes vice president of the American Civil Liberties Union and chair of its Church – State committee. So here is a Christian pastor serving on the board of a prominent pro-abortion group.

Etc.  This chap needs to take a look at Romans 1:32.  Someone tell him that’s in the Bible because he surely isn’t familiar with it.

The Way The Media Deceives: Sins of Omission

This is completely true:

Burying a story because it doesn’t accord with your ideology is dishonest. It is, in fact, deceptive. The media should really be ashamed of itself. And the public should be ashamed of the media.

Obama Has Betrayed this Country by Releasing a Notorious Spy

This is beyond despicable.  It must be the price Obama was willing to pay to silence Israeli complaints about the Iran nuclear inspection treaty.  You can almost see the hunched over the table smoke filled back room maneuverings- ‘Well, we won’t complain too much if you let the criminal Pollard go” says some crony of Netanyahu to which some Obama sycophant says ‘okie dokie’.

The Obama administration is denying that its decision to allow the release of a notorious spy is an effort to assuage Israel’s anger at the recent deal over Iran’s nuclear programJonathan Pollard, a US naval intelligence officer, was sentenced to life in prison in 1985 for passing the most sensitive and damaging US military and intelligence secrets to Israel in exchange for money to fund his luxurious lifestyle. Israel is believed to have passed many of the most sensitive secrets to the Soviet Union, then the Cold War enemy of the US.

The damage Pollard did is so great that many senior officials believe he should never go free.  But last week, the US Department of Justice indicated that it would not oppose Pollard’s release at a mandatory parole hearing this week.  Pollard’s sentence is scheduled to end in a few months, but the government could have opposed parole if it deemed him a continuing threat to national security.

Friends huh?  Yeah.  Whatever.  Meanwhile an actual American who cares about his country and who did us all a favor by exposing the illegal and immoral acts of the NSA is in exile because Obama et al think he’s public enemy number one.  What wretchedness.

Planned Parenthood’s Denialism Doesn’t Hold Water

The president of Planned Parenthood says her organization’s clinics never adjust the abortion procedure to better preserve fetal organs for medical research and the organization’s charges only cover the cost of transmission to researchers.

Planned Parenthood has come under congressional scrutiny after two stealthily recorded videos showed officials discussing how they provide aborted fetal organs for research.

Abortion opponents have characterized the videos as showing the illegal harvesting and selling of organs.

Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, says the group has done nothing illegal and is the target of a political smear campaign.

Believing the disclaimer of someone who is the head of an organization that vacuums human infants from their mother’s womb makes as much sense as believing the fox in the henhouse with feathers in its teeth who protests that he has eaten nothing at all.  If you will murder, you will lie.
