The Headline insinuated that Notre Dame was promoting abortion, and it was a pretty truthful title as this Catholic school sponsored abortion activist, Wendy Davis, to come encourage her ideas with firm confidence. The first paragraph of the www.lifesitenews article said this…
SOUTH BEND, Indiana, April 5, 2016 – “Prominent abortion activist and former Texas gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis, promoted abortion in a scheduled speech at Notre Dame Monday night, prompting criticism that the university had again betrayed its Catholic identity.”
Once again our higher education facilities have pushed aside Catholic values, Christian values, Conservative values. Students have long said that being a conservative in a Christian College isn’t much different then paying the fees to go to a liberal campus. This should be no surprise to us.
Indiana’s battleground is being prepared. Dug outs are carved, supplies are being shipped in, ammo is divided up and being reproduced, artillery is in place, and the stage is being set for intense full-arm attacks. Truth against lies. Hate against love. Life against death. The soldiers are risking their lives, pledging an allegiance to something much greater then themselves, and armoring up. They lace up their boots, climb into the hole….and wait. Watching. Each movement they sense, they are equipped to counter-attack. Every breath they breathe is heard with intensity as they know that one wrong move, or the give-away of their position, could lose them the war. They have their sight on the target. They never waver, never give up, never quit.
It’s a fierce army.
The problem is…its not our army.
As the war-time strategies are laid out on the table and key players are walking around it planning attacks, the American Christians take a nap. There is no need for a Trojan horse, they just open the doors to our cities and homes and say, “come on in.”
Come lie to us. Come corrupt our children. Come be our friends.
They throw our arms up in a full yawn & stretch with eyes half open, while they take away our faith, family, & freedom.
When sleepy Christian goes to church on Sunday, he slumps into the pew and watches the clock. He is alive while he is dead.
The breath in his lungs may make him technically alive but it doesn’t guarantee that he is actually living. Death is more then just leaving this earth, you can function here and be dead to your fellow people, country, and God at the same time.
Wendy Davis is just an example of a soldier in the trench. She has an agenda and she preformed well. Here are some of her comments from yesterday’s invited speech at Notre Dame.
Wendy says, “I was post-20 weeks of pregnancy of a much-wanted pregnancy that I had waited years to have, and … our very much-wanted child was suffering from a fatal fetal brain abnormality,” she said. “What we were told was that if our child survived delivery, which she would likely not, that she would live a life of tremendous suffering — if she lived long at all — and we made a decision out of love.”
Human Life International responded to her comment by saying this, “Abortion of children because of their disabilities is “nothing more than eugenics, discrimination of the basest kind, Even if a baby will die shortly after she is born, what is a more civilized response — to hold and love her in the short time she has on this earth, or cut her apart with a vacuum curettage machine?” HLI’s statement continued. “It is easy to love the perfect; but how much we are willing to give to the imperfect is the true measure of love.”
What happened to the natural instinct of motherhood? Where did it go?
I know a beautiful girl named Violet, who parents were told that she was going to die shortly after birth. The love of her mother and father spoke beautiful blessings over this girl while in the womb, and when she was born they held her close until she passed away. Her parents grieved, everyone did, but nothing like they would have if Violet would have been dismembered piece by piece and thrown into the garbage. Violet’s mother valued her. Violet’s mother loved her. Wendy lies when she says that her decision was made out of love, love doesn’t look like that.
Davis also used her appearance to describe Planned Parenthood as a substantial women’s healthcare provider, saying that abortion allowed her to get to where she was in life, where her mother and grandmother had not the opportunity.
The Notre Dame Gender Studies called Davis “a modern-day Texas heroine”
Her lies are not really the aspect of the battle that concerns me the most. It is rather the reaction that came afterwards. After she was done talking the students and staff gave her a standing ovation.
The church raised their hands and said, “tell me more…”
On the open grounds of confrontation, their army is mighty. Their eye is on the prize. On our side, there is a few of us, rugged and wore out; ready to fight to the end. The situation is building, every single day there is word that it’s almost time for head to head combat. The Church has two choices…Put your boots on and get dirty, or pull your pew up to the sidelines and watch your friends get slaughtered.
When we are down with the enemies boots on our neck, maybe then you will wake up from your nap and see what is happening around you. Maybe then you will stand next to your brother and fight.
When the men come running over the hill carrying a flag, I hope and pray that it is ours.
