To The Daily Sun,
Jim Veverka, in his zeal to slander Christians, reveals a poor understanding social cause and effect, and a complete abandon of any effort to judicially sort out the matters to which he refers. Attacks on Planned Parenthood are not supported in any manner by any genuine Christian church. Any well-schooled Christian understands that God says, in the Scriptures, "Vengeance is Mine says the Lord" and that it is not the place of the believer to exact vengeance, but to forgive and pray, as Jesus did, in His example on the Cross. This in no way forecloses the Christians' responsibility to work within the system to turn around this misguided and barbaric policy of abortion on demand and the selling of fetal body parts.
That there are unstable individuals who react to the horrific deeds practiced at Planned Parenthood uncovered and made known for righteous purpose is not Christian jihad. That the deeds are horrific is not the fault of the Christian group that exposed them, but of Planned Parenthood and the whole abortion industry. It's as it is with domestic violence. When a man attacks his wife and her lover. It's the transgression of infidelity that provokes the violence not the friend that thought the husband should know. Jim is interested in none of this, but only to piece statistics together with incidents to cause the allusion of Christian jihad to appear on the written page when none actually exists. Christians don't support these people in any way. It's like in the movie "Barabbas:" at the end, where the misguided Barabbas thinks the Christians are burning Rome and starts setting buildings on fire, but it wasn't the Christians.
Jim says, of abortion "It is not murder because a fetus is not a separate and independent being." Jim is right on the second part of that. A fetus is not independent in fact he is helpless apart from his mother. Because he is helpless should he be denied the right to life so that his mother and father can enjoy their liberty and pursuit of happiness? That is what Jim is proposing. As to separate: from the time of conception a fetus is a separate human being. That is not debatable. It's a fact. The rest of what Jim shares about being invested sounds very similar to the philosophy that led the Nazis to execute tens of thousands of disabled people in the early stages of World War II. Is that the kind of philosophy that you want to be guiding our nation?
As to gun control, most writers do not get to the fundamental truth underlying the Second Amendment. That is that an unarmed citizenry is reduced to slaves of their government. When gun control proponents finally get their way "the land of the free" will be no more.
Unlike "Christian Jihad," domestic terrorism is a real issue. Hillary Clinton will likely be the Democratic candidate for the presidency and Trump the Republican. With domestic terrorism on the rise, and it will rise, for the Obama administration is feckless at stopping it. Whatever you say about President George W. Bush, he understood that the best defense is a good offense. He took the fight to the Islamic world and consequently kept us safe. That was his job. Obama has played defense and the Islamic terrorists are now taking the fight here. The carnage that you have seen in the middle east and Europe now has come here.
Prediction: With the rise of Islamic terrorism here at home, this issue will dominate 2016 election. The Benghazi scandal will take on new importance in the minds of voters as indeed the cover up was to give the public the impression that America under Obama was winning the war on terror when we were not. Hillary's fingerprints are all over it. Alone in the voting booth, even many of the staunchest liberals, in concern for there own safety will vote for Trump. Trump wins by a landslide. Whether this is good for America or not, I don't know.
