Hypocrisy Rears Its Ugly Head During Issue of Gun Violence and Gun Control!

Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie. (Source: Wikipedia)
Hypocrisy has reared its big ugly head in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre which took place in Connecticut in mid-December of 2012. A majority of media people, a bunch of politicians and not a few church leaders are jumping on the “ban guns/high capacity magazines” bandwagon. Have you noticed how shooting incidents now get high profile news coverage? And states such as Connecticut and Colorado have dominated news information since enacting what has been referred to as the strictest gun control measures in the entire nation? The media are really feasting on this! And did you notice the emphasis in the graphic above in which statistics are noted as related to deaths by gun violence in the U.S. and military combat deaths?

Where is the hypocrisy in all this, you ask? For starters, on the very same day of the Sandy Hook massacre, hundreds of unborn children were brutally mutilated and murdered – not a couple or three dozen or so, but hundreds! The diligent media that is so rabid in reporting gun violence never gave so much as a teeny bit of a hint in regard to the violent deaths of those unborn children, did they? Connecticut, by the way, has one of the highest abortion rates in the entire nation – 20 for every thousand women each year! In fact, a number of states in the northeast which suffered great devastation due to Hurricane Sandy have extremely high abortion rates.

The campaign is under way to make our schools safer for children, so the gun control advocates claim. But they suddenly develop a case of lockjaw when it comes to speaking out and making the country safer so that about 25,000 unborn children are not violently killed each week of the year!

The present resident of the White House has been aggressively pushing for more and more gun control and in his rhetoric declares that we need to take steps to reduce gun violence and loss of human life as a result of such violence. Yet at the same time this man is an ardent supporter of the present national policy that permits a million or more unborn children to be violently murdered each year!

While a member of the Illinois legislature Obama was instrumental in blocking legislation intended to require lifesaving treatment be given to an infant that just happened to survive an abortion attempt on its life. Yes, once in a great while a small number do survive that hellish procedure. But so far as Obama was concerned, let them lay on a table until they die – do not so much as lift your pinky finger to help them! No doubt about it – we are witnessing hypocrisy in its most decadent form – we cry out for more gun control – we say the gun violence must stop but we don’t let one syllable come out of the mouth in protest against violence that takes the lives of hundreds of unborn children each day.

Have you ever seen a photo of the dismembered remains of an unborn child that was brutally torn to pieces by a guy wearing a white coat with the erroneous letters “M.D.” stitched behind his name? For some strange reason the media people, pro-abortion politicians, zealous supporters of abortion on demand, and indifferent church leaders vehemently object to the public exposure of photos which underscore the horrors of the United States’ unique version of Holocaust.

The graphic at the beginning quoted a figure of 305,493 deaths from gun violence from year 2001 through year 2010. How many unborn children were deliberately murdered during those years? You do not think in terms of a few hundred thousand -- escalate your calculation in terms of millions. Grand total since the insane Supreme Court decision of 1973 stating it is a "constitutional right" for a female to choose to have her unborn child dismembered and murdered is over 55 million victims!

But this “shedding of innocent blood” (a Bible term) will definitely come to an end at some point in the future. However, it is highly unlikely it will come by state and federal level legislation – the hardness of heart is too deeply entrenched for that possibility. Rather it will come by the direct intervention of Almighty God Who forms all conceived children in the womb for a high and holy purpose. We are not going to want to be within the boundaries of this republic when that intervention takes place!

The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, and shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. --- Matthew 24:50, 51 (KJV)
