MI Right to Life's Brian Cusack made the point at a banquet I recently attended that there is a schism between believing what 53% of Americans responded to a December 2005 Zogby poll, that "abortion destroys a human life and is manslaughter," and putting it into practice.
Cusack called it "the great disconnect" that people would willingly stand by and even condone what they consider "manslaughter."
A clear example of the great disconnect came Oct. 9 when the Nobel Peace Prize committee chose Barack Obama as its 2009 recipient.
Obama had only been in office 12 days when nominations closed and had furthermore done "jack and squat" in the nine months following, as a Saturday Night Live skit recently put it.
But the committee awarded Obama because he gave the world "hope for a better future," according its statement.
The disconnect, of course, is Obama is the most pro-abortion president in US history, to the point of advocating postborn baby killing if it would interfere with preborn baby killing.
Actually, from a pro-abortion perspective, Obama has done "jack and pot" since becoming president....
Continue reading my column today, "Obama's polar opposite lost Peace Prize," on WorldNetDaily.com.
Thankfully, there will be a just accounting of our deeds with God meting out rewards and punishment as He sees fit.
No doubt Irena Sendler is enjoying the riches and rewards in Heaven given her for her faithful and sacrificial service of those precious children.
BO on the other hand has got a lot of blood on his hands. I pray he repents.Posted by: Ed at October 14, 2009 1:33 PM
You make an excellent point regarding Irena. I remember reading her story when she passed away, and was amazed I never heard her story. At the time, my father was in a nursing home, and I brought the obituary to show the staff and residents who were of Polish decent, and they didn't know her story. It was nice to see you bringing her back in the spotlight. I will always remember her.Posted by: Maureen at October 14, 2009 1:39 PM
Thank you for the column, but now I find myself sitting at my desk fuming! Obama is such an awful, awful, awful man. Anyone with a conscience and who is well informed just shouldn't trust him. What will he possibly come up with next? I am truly scared to find out. Those poor, poor babies. It makes my heart sick with fear and anger. Grrr!
Excellent, excellent article Jill. BRAVO! I have never heard of Irena until you wrote about her immediately following the Nobel prize to BHO. Thank you so much for telling her story. Like you, a very courageous woman, each of you in your own right.
I must say, though, that after the short paragraph about Al Gore, the line in your article that totally cracked me up (and also made me want to cry) was, "You may never have heard of Irena Sendler, whose humanitarian carbon footprint has been largely hidden under a bushel."
Clever as usual.
Thanks Jill.Posted by: Marie at October 14, 2009 9:57 PM
"Jack and pot"
Witty Jill.Posted by: carder at October 14, 2009 10:28 PM
Piece Prize maybe. But not Peace.
Not for builders of mother mutilating baby killing mills.
I like obama I think that everything should be ok..Posted by: chris brown at October 15, 2009 1:09 PM
I disagree that everything should be ok. I think that impeachment is much more merciful than having his brains vaccuumed out or being left in a soiled utility room to die. I think Obama would agree with me on that.Posted by: MEL at October 17, 2009 7:44 AM
