I call upon You, Lord, God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob and Israel, You who are the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the God who, through the abundance of your mercy, was well-pleased towards us so that we may know You, who made heaven and earth, who rules over all, You who are the one and the true God, above whom there is no other God; You who, by our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit, give to every one who reads this writing to know You, that You alone are God, to be strengthened in You, and to avoid every heretical and godless and impious teaching.

St Irenaeus of Lyons, Against the Heresies 3:6:4

Israel Providing "Free" Abortions

People have wondered for an entire term and one half if Israel and the Obama administration would ever find common ground. Well, now they have it: Tax-supported, “free” abortions!

One also wonders if even this will provide a sufficient stumbling block to stunt the millions of dollars spent each year by nutty Christian Zionists supporting the nation of Israel. To think that the same fundamentalists who are marching on Washington, fighting against tax funded abortion in the U.S., will in turn still send support for Israel is unfathomable. Well, if the idea that their monies are used to supply artillery to the Israeli military, which has undoubtedly killed innumerable Palestinian Christians, I doubt this will thwart their earthy Zionist dreams either.

C. Ben Mitchell, a professor of moral philosophy at Union Univ. in Jackson, TN, nailed it. “Israel has been wracked by bloodshed for centuries. It seems almost unimaginable that the state would now fund violence in the womb.”

Deus misereatur!!
