President Obama on abortion

Adrian Rogers (former President of Southern Baptist Convention): “I am not as afraid of the Communist, the Russians, the Chinese, as much as I am afraid of God.  If God be for us, who can be against us?  If God be against us, then who can be for us?  It is God I am afraid of.”

I personally started walking in these marches in 1983. There have been some years when the weather was really bad and I missed. I took my four kids to many of them. It is always an emotional time.

I remember especially 1993’s March since I felt that for the first time since Roe v Wade that Arkansas could have a major impact. I knew that Bill Clinton had resided in our city for many years and was a Southern Baptist as I was. In fact, I learned a few days later that my former pastor Adrian Rogers had a chance with several other pastors to meet with the incoming President a few days earlier in Little Rock.

My friend, the Rev Sherwood Haisty Jr., and I had a chance to eat lunch with Dr. Rogers the next Thursday and he told us what President Clinton had to say on the issue of abortion. Before the meeting with the pastors began he outlined his position on abortion which was basically pro-choice. In others words, President Clinton was opening the floor for other subjects but that issue was already settled.

Looking back to the 8 years of Bill Clinton, he did everything he could to further the pro-abortion agenda. Some day his wife may be president and I have no reason to believe that she will not try to do the same.

    Everette, I do remember meeting with Dr. Rogers with you that day for lunch. That was a wonderful time and one I will continue to cherish.

    It was heart breaking to have Bill Clinton win the election. I knew that he would support abortion and it was a great defeat for the pro-life movement. Elections have consequences. Look at the Supreme Court Justices he appointed. We could have Roe v. Wade overturned by now if we had elected the right Presidents since 92 and on.

    What is abortion?
    It is the last form of birth control for a sexualy immoral society.
    It is a cash cow for the greedy abortion doctors and clinics.
    It is a ticket to office for liberal politicians.
    But what it realy is, is an abomination.
    It is the murder of innocent unborn babies legaly by the millions.
    It is the sin that stains our nation with blood from sea to shinning sea.
    It is a quite little proceedure performed in city after city by monsters who will kill upon monsters who will have their babies killed.
    To God, abortion is EVIL, it is an inextricable and unfathomable EVIL.

    Bill Clinton said he wanted abortion, legal, safe, and rare. He lied. But what he said he wanted should have been an outrage. I for one don’t believe abortion should be legal or safe, and rare is not rare enough. Abortion is legal but shouldn’t be. Abortion isn’t safe for the baby, why should it be safe for the killers? May we repent of this evil in our land. Evangelicals must lead the way. I close with this poem I used in a sermon encouraging Christians to vote pro-life. It is an adaptation of “This Little Piggy Went to Market”.

    This Little Evangelical

    This little Evangelical went to the ballot box.

    This little Evangelical stayed home.

    This little Evangelical had convictions.

    This little Evangelical had none.

    And this little unborn baby cried wee, wee, wee, as it died in it’s mother’s womb.

    The last line should give us all chills.
