2.24.2005    |    you can kill the baby if he's straight...
From the State of Maine, the Mainiacs have now upped and annoyed the pro-death brigades, a/k/a those who believe a woman should have the right to choose to kill her unborn child. With a tip of the fedora to JivinJehoshaphat for finding this bit of bizarreness (is that a word?). The Mainiacs have a bill to amend their state law so as to prevent the abortion of a gay fetus. Yes, you read that correctly.

The bill is titled, "An Act To Protect Homosexuals from Discrimination." The operative section if this bit of New Brave World wisdom is:
An abortion may not be performed when the basis for the procedure is the projected sexual orientation of the fetus after birth, based on analysis of genetic materials of the fetus in which sexual orientation is identified through the presence or absence of a so-called "homosexual gene."
Well, I'm somewhat ignorant of what the "homosexual gene" might be, and, frankly, I'm not interested in finding out. What I am is in favor of life -- born, yet to be born.

Well, John Luke, as a God-fearing Christian, don't you just hate those homosexuals? Wouldn't you want to prevent their being born in the first place if you could? The answers are no, and hell no. As in, the place to which those who kill the yet-to-be-born willingly, with malice aforethought, will be going. If I knew to a mathematical certainty that a child would be "born homosexual", I would not kill him or her. Impossible. Even assuming that one is born homosexual, so what? Are we not all born in sin? Some repent; many do not. Some will be saved; many will not.

Homosexuality may be a state of being. I've also read that there may be a DNA strand that makes a man prone to violence. Or to being a thief. Or to being a host of other things, good, and not so good.

Sin must be resisted. And my essential point is that sin is vested in the DNA of any and all who are human. Homosexuals, thieves, clergy, me, sinners all. Is it a sin to kill a sinner? Yes; it is only for God to judge us in this, to make us pay in the ultimate coin. It is, therefore, to be against God to snuff out a life, any human life, before it can even be born. Simply because some man-made test may predict certain behavior. Or may not.

Homosexual behavior is an abomination unto the Lord. And the Lord will judge such behavior. Killing a (perhaps) homosexual baby in the womb is far, far worse.

About this site and the author

Welcome. My name is John Luke Rich, (very) struggling Christian. The focus here is Christianity in its many varieties, its fussing and feuding, how it impacts our lives and our society, with detours to consider it with other faiths (or lack thereof).

Call this blog my way of evangelizing on the internet.

Putting it differently, we're only here on this earth a short time. It's the rest of eternity that we should be most concerned about. Call it the care and feeding of our souls.

I was born Jewish, and born again in Christ Jesus over thirty years ago. First as a Roman Catholic; now a Calvinist by persuasion and a Baptist by denomination. But I'm hardly a poster boy for doctrinal rigidity.

I believe that Scripture is the rock on which all Christian churches must stand -- or sink if they are not so grounded. I believe that we are saved by faith, but hardly in a vacuum. That faith is a gift from God, through no agency on our part -- although we sometimes turn a deaf ear and choose to ignore God's knocking on the door.

To be Christian is to evangelize. Those who think it not their part to evangelize perhaps haven't truly understood what our Lord told us in Matthew 28. We must preach the Gospel as best we are able. Using words if necessary.

Though my faith waxes and wanes, it never seems to go away. Sometimes I wish it would, to give me some peace of mind. But then, Jesus never said that walking with Him was going to be easy...

Final note: I also blog as Jack Rich on cultural, political and other things over at Wrong Side of the Tracks

Thanks for stopping by.
