The Alternative Facts of the Pro-Life Debacle


Members of Arapahoe and Douglas counties disabled community gathered for an ice cream social at Center Point in suburban Denver earlier this week, which made me think of the funding from which the “Party of Life” wants to siphon for the sake of the American killing machine.

Once the reader realizes that Trump has threatened to go to war after having stolen a presidential election and having mocked someone with a developmental disability, the reader of this article should ask himself two questions:

First, why is the United States threatening to start World War III if it can ill afford to fund public schools or rebuild its infrastructure?  Second, since the Republican Party has such a hard-on for the military, shouldn’t it make sure that America can replenish the war machine by seeing to it that the next generation of weapons designers score better in math and science? And if so, shouldn’t these “godly” Republicans see to it that these children who supposedly had a right to birth have the same right to adequate food so they can perform well in school?

Oh, wait! Science is fake news, isn’t it?

Jesus executed the prostitute in John 8, right?

Judas got a reprieve!
I remember it all now! Talk about your alternative facts!

How can anyone support this “right to life” debacle when they want to deny poor children food, medicine, and a safety net-and all in the Name of God?

Whose life is considered to be sacred?

Who deserves food, medicine, and a decent place to sleep so that they can perform well at school in the morning?

Conservatives usually reply that people who can’t afford children shouldn’t have them. That must mean they support abortion rights-or, at least free access to birth control. After all, 1 Corinthians 7 states that married couples must have sex so that they aren’t tempted to cheat due to their lack of self-control (1 Corinthians 7:5).

Read four verses down, and you will realize that sex is the reason to marry. That is if one is to assume that the reader claims to be a Christian.

So, let’s get down to cases. We have established the fact that God wants people to fuck (within the realm of marriage, yes) and that Christ fed the poor for free. What’s the real issue here?

How are we going to get this almighty war machine with engineers who know how to design guided missile systems, soldiers who know the difference between friend and foe, and an infrastructure that doesn’t crumble?

Didn’t Jesus tell you to pay taxes, (Matthew 22:21) and didn’t He pay taxes Himself (Matthew 17:24-27)?

I know! We’ll pray!

Why not? It worked for the Millerites, right?
