Just When We Have Sunk As Low As a Society Can Go, We Manage to Dig Our Pit of Depravity Even Deeper!

A breaking news headline (Jan 24, 2013) has informed us with the exciting revelation that the Pentagon is lifting the ban on women being directly involved in combat operations. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in releasing the information stated that it was “the responsibility of every citizen to protect the nation.” And the present resident of the White House had to say something too – in his words the decision to involve females in direct combat circumstances would “be another step toward fulfilling our nation’s founding ideals of fairness and equality.”

We have dug a pit of depravity for ourselves that is about as deep as it can possibly be with our lack of respect for human life – that is, the intentional destruction of thousands of unborn children every week. A recent poll has indicated that most United States citizens want this carnage to continue and to preserve the ruling of Roe v. Wade intact, which is what the nation’s top elected “leader” wants also! But we have managed to make the pit a bit deeper in the bizarre announcement that now women will be able to have direct participation in military combat operations. You have already read the insane comments of two persons who are supposed to be in positions of leadership.

In older times when wisdom, common sense, and deep God-fearing moral convictions dominated the mindset of those elected to lead our republic, it was believed that men did the fighting in military conflict when that became a very nasty necessity. While women served in the military, it was always out of harm’s way as much as possible. It was a commonly held belief that a nation did everything it could to protect the women and the children in the event of armed conflict. And who was to do the protecting? The answer was simple – the men!

Having been trained a long, long time ago on how to use weapons against an enemy and how to tear an enemy up with a bayonet in the ugly “hand to hand” stuff, it is impossible for me to try to visualize what it would be like to be alongside a female while trading bullets with an enemy a few yards away. Personally, I am afraid I would be greatly distracted by worrying about her well being and protection in the midst of all the action. Yeah, that’s the male chauvinist coming out of me! I still believe in trying to be a gentleman and treat a lady like a lady – I still open doors in public places for a lady entering or leaving a building.

But the very worst thing in this "grand opportunity" of sending women into full combat operations is something that our “leaders” have not seriously thought about or they are so hopelessly brainwashed into the delusion that a “woman can do anything a man can do and probably do it better.” Want to think for a moment what will happen to those females if they happen to be captured by the enemy? Sit down and write some of the details as to what will transpire. Oh, make sure you warn the reader that what they are about to read carries a XXX rating!

However, that really doesn’t matter now, does it? We have taken “another step toward fulfilling our nation’s founding ideals of fairness and equality.”

Oh, by the way - on that matter of a woman being able to do anything a man can do, and probably do it better anyway -- I have yet to see a female on the starting lineup and playing the position of nose tackle on even one of the NFL teams - have you?

Wives, be in subjection unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord...But as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it...Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his own wife loveth himself…. --- Ephesians 5:22, 24, 25, 28

Another Happening on December 14, 2012 Is Ignored and Vehemently Denied!

Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah. --- 2 Kings 21:16

On December 14, 2012 in Newtown CT Adam Lanza, 20 years old, entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and shot 20 children and 6 adults to death. This tragic happening not only shook our republic but many other nations in this world as well.

The media immediately went into “shark in bloody water mode” with a constant stream of reports from the massacre scene and a barrage of statements issued by persons who had some kind of position somewhere within the borders of the United States! And it actually continues to an extent a month later. Our local NBC affiliate in Johnstown PA (WJAC TV) makes its pilgrimage to Newtown CT on a repetitive basis to dredge up something – sort of like a vulture returning to the bones to get that very last piece of rotting flesh on the rib cage!

Now then, do you realize this – that on that very same day hundreds (not just dozens) – yes, hundreds – perhaps as many as 3,000 innocent unborn children were intentionally mutilated and murdered in their so-called “mothers’” wombs in the “land of the free and the home of the brave?” Yes, it happened on December 14, 2012!

Answer me – how many of our diligent media reported this far greater massacre that took place on December 14, 2012? How many of our high profile elected officials pointed out this abomination as they prattled on and on about the shooting of small children and adults in a school in Connecticut?

And of course, as could have been expected, the anti-gun campaign began with such intensity that it would make a presidential campaign seem like an amateur contest in its earliest stages! Again, elected officials led the way with declarations of the need to ban guns or at the very least so restrict gun owners that owning a gun is about the worst thing you can be guilty of doing and you need to pay some kind of exorbitant price for such an offense.

Mr. Obama was quick to jump on the anti-gun bandwagon with all sorts of statements issued including the not so veiled threat to use executive “power” in order to bring a high degree of control on the availability and use of firearms.

But in all the flood of words that spewed forth from all officials (self-appointed and otherwise) including the present resident of the White House, did you hear one word of concern about the massacre of hundreds of innocent unborn children on December 14, 2012?

While the media has overwhelmed us with talk about banning guns and reducing violence as a result of usage of those horrible gadgets, have there been any proposals from our elite leadership about banning the tools used to rip apart an unborn child so that the pieces are scattered out on a table and a “doctor” (term used very loosely) takes an inventory so that he/she is certain everything is accounted for – before the pieces are then discarded as casually as throwing a tissue into the garbage can after blowing one’s nose into that tissue?

The greatest tragedy of all in this matter is not the killing of persons in a place in the state of Connecticut or even the daily destruction of hundreds of unborn children in a republic known as the United States of America – the ultimate tragedy is that we have leadership (political and church) so blind and so ignorant that they fail to realize that the God Who formed this mighty universe by mere spoken command is going to make His response to this massive “shedding of innocent blood” that has been going on for forty years as of January 22, 2013!

No culture in the past has practiced the “shedding of innocent blood” and gotten off without incalculable consequences – in fact they now lie in ruins somewhere in this dismal world. It is a guarantee that the United States will prove to be no exception!

And I saw when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the whole moon became as blood; and the stars of the heaven fell unto the earth, as a fig tree casts her unripe figs when she is shaken of a great wind. And the heaven was removed as a scroll when it is rolled up; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the chief captains, and the rich, and the strong, and every bondman and freeman, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains; and they say to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: for the great day of their wrath is come; and who is able to stand?” --- Revelation 6:12-17
