One of These Things is Not Like the Other... -" After receiving an honorary doctorate in law at the University of Notre Dame’s graduation ceremony yesterday, President Barack Obama delivered a speech to the school's graduating seniors that sought to legitimize his position in favor of the legal killing of unborn children.

Obama told the graduates of the nation’s most well-known Catholic university that abortion “has both moral and spiritual dimensions”--although he did not explain why he had made this conclusion—and made it quite clear that, even so, he has no intention of moving from his position that it ought to be legal for a pregnant mother to have a doctor kill her unborn child for literally any reason at any stage of pregnancy.

The president also did not take back his declaration made in 2007 to Planned Parenthood that he would sign the Freedom of Choice Act, a bill that would eliminate all the state and federal limitations on abortion that have been achieved by the pro-life movement in the 26 years since the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand in its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision."

This kind of double-speak has been common since the campaign last fall. Common ground? Wouldn't that be like those for and against the death penalty discussing how many volts to use in the electric chair or the length of the rope for the condemned prisoner on the gallows? The condemned person still dies! BO also has made statements inferring somehow that the lines are fuzzy on the issue. Sounds like he is having a relapse of the problem he had when he tried to explain when life began to Rev. Rick Warren. I don't know what Bible he reads, but mine makes this issue quite clear. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us,"Before I (God) formed you in the womb I knew you..."Jesus tells us those who would harm one of the little ones would be better off if they were cast into the sea with a boulder around their neck, than to face the final judgment with innocent blood on their hands. Doesn't sound fuzzy to me. I suppose when your pastor takes God's name in vain to make his sermon points, then sanctity of life issues are probably fuzzy for him also. The media tells us some of the Pro-Life demonstrators were arrested. I wonder if they had been hugging tress or protesting the war if they would have gone to jail as quickly. Kudos to our Catholic brothers in Christ. We should desire some of their boldness. The talking heads and politicians were as scarce at this event as hair on a chicken. The Holiness movement resorted to civil disobedience the first time an individual thought they owned another in this country.I don't know where we were Sunday. Regardless of what revisionist historians might write in the public school textbooks, the Civil War was about slavery. Seems many of our free speech rights as Christians and citizens are disappearing from our eyes in the name of "tolerance." The Bible warned us this would happen in the last days. We have seen the broad outlines of Bible Prophecy being fulfilled in the last 100 years. Now I believe we are seeing the boxes shaded in. I will leave you with the words of a wise individual.

"Suppose every American spent a little time each studying the Bible and the basic documents of American history, government, and culture? The result would be a new America, vigilant, strong, but ever humble in the service of God."J. Edgar Hoover,1958, in "Masters of Deceit," ...keith 1 Cor 13
