“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Obama, Planned Parenthood and prejudice

Below you will see a video of Presidential candidate Barack Obama addresses an adoring crowd at a Planned Parenthood convention.

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf0XIRZSTt8

Obama promised that the first thing he would do as President would be to pass the Freedom of Choice Act.

Did he, or the crowd, know about the racist anti-Black views of Planned Parenthood's Founder, Margaret Singer? View the video in the previous blog entry courtesy of the American Life League, entitled: "Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood's racist Founder."

It's ironic that it was a previous prejudice that would have stopped President-elect Barack Obama from pursuing the highest office in America and his foundational human rights to "...Liberty and the pursuit of happiness": Yet he will not protect the youngest members of America's human family's "Right to Life" -- also cited in the same towering Declaration

Bigotry comes in many forces: Prejudice against skin color, age, gender, or even those who are unwanted or inconvenient.

I would have thought Obama would have been sensitive to this and vowed during his presidency to protect all vulnerable humanity -- not continue to deny an identifiable group their human rights (the first of which is the Right to Life).
