A Shameful Day for Washington DC?

The news release mentioned that the present resident of the White House was “visibly frustrated” and that he “decried the defeat of the measure as parents of victims of last year's Newtown school shootings and former congresswoman Gabby Giffords looked on.” This bit of drama took place in the aftermath of the vote in the Senate in which the expanded background check on gun sales was defeated by a vote of 54 to 46. 60 votes were needed for the amendment to be adopted. In the Rose Garden setting it was noted that "All in all, this was a pretty shameful day for Washington."

Depending on whose ox was gored in the voting, remarks were made either in support of or against more gun control legislation.

The tragedy, however, is in the remark about it being a shameful day in Washington because of the way the vote went. In their ignorance the members of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government fail to realize that every day has been a shameful day for Washington DC for decades over time!

Even as zealous gun control advocates lamented the way the vote went today in the U.S. Senate they did not recognize another very critical happening which took place throughout the day. Even as the vote was being processed in the Senate chamber a number of unborn children were being brutally mutilated and murdered at different locations throughout our republic. And as the day comes to a close the tally of innocent victims will be in the hundreds!

But these high profile people in the three powerful branches of the United States government do not care – in fact, most are in support of the daily massacre of hundreds of unborn children. Further, the present resident of the White House will vigorously oppose any effort to restrict the practice of exterminating thousands of unborn children each week of the year!

It is nothing short of hypocrisy of the first magnitude to focus on alleged violence and loss of life due to use of firearms but not give a second of time to constructively eliminate the violence that takes the lives of hundreds of the unborn each week day. The tragedy is compounded when it is recognized that the people who commit these mass murders are never charged with a crime and become extremely wealthy as a result of the murders which they have been guilty of committing.

It is one of many glaring inconsistencies in our culture – a person spends a lot of time and work in developing skills that are to be used to benefit and enhance human health, but then turns around and uses those skills to further advance the bloody tally of the United States’ version of Holocaust!

The question of all questions is this: what will all these people do when Almighty God Who forms each conceived human being in his/her mother’s womb openly shows His intense displeasure with our insane policy of establishing a “constitutional right” to destroy an unborn child by deliberate choice?

For if ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye thoroughly execute justice between a man and his neighbor; if ye oppress not the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your own hurt: then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, from of old even for evermore. Jeremiah 7:5-7 (ASV)
