In what really should come as an explosive wake-up call to the legions of emotionally-blinded pro-lifers who deceive themselves into thinking that in an abortive throw-away society President Donald Trump, of the USA, is the ‘great hope’ of unborn children, Trump has at long-last come clean and openly admitted he is not actually pro-life.
But, of course, in that Wormtongue-style propaganda so typical of politicians he stills claims to be “strongly pro-life” whilst actually not being pro-life in any principled way at all.
Pro-Life, except when …………..
To be in favour of life is a moral judgement that places one on the side of innocent life whatever the circumstances. To pick and choose according to circumstance rather than being guided by moral principle is to think and act immorally.
But will Trump’s admission be enough to break the Wormtongue-like spell that pro-lifers have so far insisted on labouring under? Is it really so difficult to understand that Donald Trump and his US government is not pro-life? It is pro-death!
Christian morality obliges us all to recognise that whether by unjust war, unjust sanctions, unjust taxation and usury, or by unjust laws allowing and encouraging contraception, sodomy or ‘gender’-confusion, the USA stands for chaos, death and destruction, not life.
Pro-Life without compromise!
