We’re Just Blowing Out the Candles….

Roe v. Wade at 41

January 22, 1973 abortion “legalized”.

January 22, 2014….To commemorate Roe v. Wade’s 41st “birthday…...

“We know that the sinless priests of this sinless people worshipped sinless gods, who accepted as the nectar and ambrosia of their sunny paradise nothing but incessant human sacrifice accompanied by horrible torments…[C]ertain human antagonisms seem to recur in this tradition of black magic. There may be suspected as running through it everywhere, for instance, a mystical hatred of the idea of childhood. People would understand better the popular fury against witches, if they remembered that the malice most commonly attributed to them was preventing the birth of children. The Hebrew prophets were perpetually protesting against the Hebrew race relapsing into an idolatry that involved such a war against children.”
— GK Chesterton


“I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...”
— Mother Teresa





We’re Just Blowing Out the Candles….


We’re just blowing out the candles!
Happy birthday, Roe v. Wade!
Celebrating Rites we offer,
Ahhh!...The “progress”’ that we’ve made!

We’re just blowing out the candles!
These our sacrificial deeds…,
Tiny lights eradicated,
While our idol, Lust, we feed.

We’re just blowing out the candles!
Roe v. Wade at forty-one…
Conscience-searing1 numbers growing,
While we’re growing only numb.

We’re just blowing out the candles!
Countless millions now removed.
Ancient “New Age” winds are stirring…
Howling past…Molech-approved2!

We’re just blowing out the candles!
Resurrecting pagan past…
Modern man set “free” to worship
Celebrating Tissue Mass.

Lord, have mercy…Please forgive us,
For this ill-wind blowing through.
Give us Grace to see our sin, Lord.
And then Grace to trust in You.

Help us see the Son you sent us,
Help us know why He was born3!
As we’re blowing out these candles,
Give us Grace, dear Lord, to mourn4.

Word of God, please whisper to us…
Yes, true Truth….Expose our sin!
Father, take us up to Calv’ry,
Where we may be born again….5
