Atheists Concerned for America: God is Pro-DEATH!


Home

**

Introduction: It is REVOLTING in my opinion how radical Christians don't take the time to appropriately learn their Biblical knowledge before running their mouths! In abortion's concern, notably, they love to recite "I kneweth you in thy womb" and "Thou Shall Not Kill", as that's precisely what they hear at church Sundays; but just much so NOT uneventfully followed, yet these unremembered Bible quotes cited imminently— all unremittingly literalistic within fundamentalists' strictest non-modifiable Scriptural interpretation styles nonetheless— ultimately ASSIST my staunch opposing, and inordinately-nuanced, straightforwardly far more compelling stated argument: Yahweh (the common name for the monotheistic "Judaic-Christian" god) is, according to the word of the Bible alone, so unalike Christians' inexplicably "Utmost Loving" & "Pro-Life Only" displayed description, it's actually more accurate to say He's ("Pro-Life") Pro-Death; henceforth making equable acknowledgements along every side's contrasting Biblical angle, thereby instantaneously begins distinguishing to irrespective devoid value thereof any and all such previous even possibly  extricable contending Anti-Choice arguments whatsoever "Scripturally-otherwise” hither. Yes, indeed once you've compartmentalized my all-too-easily-fathomable, solely Bible-based argument, no other argument from (soon, anyway!) proved-vapid Christians will ever come close to noteworthy mental touch.

"God IS NOT Pro-Life: BIBLICALLY  Correcting Hypocritical 'Anti-Choice' Christian Exploiters"

By Jordan "BluntJoey" Adorno



Abortion is a humongous controversy in America even today, nearly forty years after its legal establishment. Ever since The Supreme Court legalized abortion in the 1973 ruling Roe vs. Wade, one of the most monumental Supreme Court cases in United States history, there has been nonstop, rampant backlash from right-wing Christian extremists. (Their most recently well-publicized political failure in illegalizing abortion occurred when President Obama, a firm Pro-Choicer, beat his anti-abortion opponent, Senator McCain, in the 2008 Presidential US Race.) But where exactly in the Bible does so much forthcoming "Pro-Lifer" contention come from? Well, I began searching. Yes, I found Christians' lukewarm Bible verses, but I also soon discovered that their alleged "Pro-Life" god does not exist in the Bible. But in show of unbiased evaluation, I'll therefore highlight first and foremost the Pro-lifers' (weak) Scriptural disputation, and only then subsequently illuminate my concrete and amply-detailed, adverse Scriptural standpoint. That well-noted, in open display that I have nothing to hide on the matter, the following, hence, accurately expands the entirety of the "Pro-Lifers'" Scriptural argument. And quickly proved hereby, you'll see, is how remarkably fast mine, the latter, dispels right to dust any remotest trace of credibility for the Pro-Lifers' allegedly Biblical, 'anti-abortion god':

(Firstly, however...two disclaimers. A) This is NOT an attack on Jewish people, because they, on the opposite hand, rather do not rampantly impose their beliefs on others. B) I must also warn you that the content of many of the following Biblical texts are extremely heinous, filled with crimes against humanity; For an equivalent example, God not only condones fathers selling their daughters into sex slavery, He provides exact directions on how to do so in Exodus 21:7.)


Their Scriptural references are Isaiah 49:1, because in it states, "Yahweh called me when I was in the womb, before my birth he had pronounced my name"; Psalms 139:13-16, which reads, "You formed my inmost being; You knit me in my mother's womb"; best of all is Jeremiah 1:5, which says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." Less common but here acknowledged nonetheless, Exodus 21:22-24 explains a certain law regarding violence upon pregnant women: it states that if a man attacks a pregnant woman and causes her to miscarry, he is obliged to pay a larger fine to her husband (remember—women are Biblically ineligible of equal rights) because of it. The Pro-Lifers' dilemma is that no baby or fetus is being protected in this law. The fine is higher when a pregnant woman miscarries, yes, strictly because HER physical suffering is far worse; the same attack on her, hence, would've been less intense without the addition of a miscarriage, right? Exactly. That's it — no terminated fetuses are discussed here. (Laws today place higher repercussions for attacking pregnant women, too, but in most states the child is only considered a life if it took a breath outside the womb; abortion, of course, is illegal if the child can survive outside the womb.) However, it's fair enough that Christians feel convinced by these quotes because modern "abortion" surely didn't exist in the Bible.

But if your plan is to radically advocate anti-abortion laws as a "Christian", you'd BETTER not rely solely on the knowledge your churches teach. Let me highlight away on God's "position" about abortion, which, Biblically so-transparent, is sound and easy to find: he is the antithesis of "Pro-life."

To begin lightly, 2 Kings 15:16 describes a tale of God allowing a pregnant woman in Tappuah to be "ripped open" for SUSPECTED adultery. Furthermore, the horrific Numbers 5:11-21 is a striking tale of a woman that SPECULATIVELY committed adultery. As her punishment, God approved forcing her to drink a strange "potion" so she would miscarry. An argument that she was righteously punished by God is an absolute fallacy because, as Christian Pro-lifers always say, 'No scenario is right for abortion.' Now, with those God-directed abortions in mind, let's return to Isaiah 49:1's, "Yahweh called me when I was in the womb, before my birth he had pronounced my name." God knows us in the womb as human beings already, and yet he would ruthlessly kill a harmless baby for being an adulterous conception?! Now the Pro-lifers sound less profound already, eh?

Greater proof is in the Book of Hosea, which proves God is the greatest abortionist ever, in a scripture that CERTAINLY re-defines "Pro-Choice": the prophet Hosea asks God to punish all women in the Ephrain civilization (which he feels is an unholy society), pleading, "Give them a miscarrying and dry breath ... [S]lay the beloved fruit of the womb"; guess what? EVERY LAST WOMAN in the entire civilization indeed miscarries, as Hosea requested (Hosea 9:11- 16). Secondly, in Hosea 13:16 the entire city of Samaria is punished by God at the request of Hosea again. Without hesitation God VERBATIM declares, "[T]heir little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open." Thereby, it's obvious God and his prophet are uncaring towards "the sanctity of life", born or unborn, because they willingly murder innocent babies, too!This next one is so disturbing that it is difficult to paraphrase, Judges 19:24-25, which reads, “Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them; and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning." That itself is terrible enough. Unbelievably, the story culminates with the young lady being murdered for being a victim of rape in Judges 19:27-29: "...And when he was come into his house, he took a knife, and laid hold on his concubine, and divided her, together with her bones, into twelve pieces, and sent her into all the coasts of Israel."

But the apathy, the malice, the sociopath-like demeanor — None of it ceases to advance itself. God is merciless to affirm his "wrathful love" more clearly, decidedly killing infants too, as exampled in these scriptural depictions: In The Book of Samuel, God mercilessly demands the murder of "suckling infants" (1 Samuel 15:3). Similarly, in Psalm 137:9, God sentences a large amount of infants to be, "dashed upon the rocks", and not surprisingly is later greatly commended for doing so (Psalms 136:10). Seemingly, now that the true identity of the Biblical God has been illuminated so brightly, the murdering of children should neither surprise nor alarm you after everything previous. The Book of Leviticus, ironically, was one Joyce Meyer, a famous Christian Evangelist, suggested to her audience not to start with because it would disengage the reader into boredom; and though there is no doubt she is well-intentioned (her sermons are often universally-applicable, one would say), it seems more arguable that the reader would feel "Atheist-like" than "Bored." I have yet to "expose" an eighth of its abominations even, and the murdering of children will not be omitted.

God commands capital punishment if a child talks back, enacting lawful practice, “For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him" (Leviticus 20:9). Similar quotes are as rampant as sexism in the Bible (both which are two of the most overlying topics entirely in the Bible), such as when the prophet Elijah was a small boy with a bald head that TWO boys made fun of. Somehow God felt that sending two female bears to annihilate not just the two boys that "perpetrated" the crime, but FORTY MORE little boys paid the price for childish bullying (2 Kings 2:23-24). Funny enough, this next scenario is rather well-known from the story of Moses' freeing of the slaves in Egypt (whom himself is quite a "character", too — see "The True Moses and Paul"); the story is very telling of God's righteous wrath, and which is learned terribly by every Christian as ever-justified due to the fault of humans, conditioned so that we never question what would normally appall us. Though the above applies to the entire Bible, specifically in the tale of the Egyptian Pharaoh’s reluctance (only because God CURSED HIM SO, in the first place), God intentionally decides to kill every single INNOCENT first-born child of every Egyptian family. As if they were at all guilty for political actions above them! It's ABOMINABLE that God stirred the political clash to the outrageous level that he could spawn seven plagues upon Egypt to begin with, but to end with the murder of innocent children is irreconcilable (Exodus 12)! (That's why Jews celebrate Passover; hence, their children were "passed over".)

In 1 Samuel 15:11-18, God originally crowned Saul a great kingdom delightfully — the only catch was that he had to mass murder all of its innocent women and children. Eventually, God actually repents on instilling the deal at all because Saul shamefully wouldn't do such a thing! Even in the New Testament too, believe it or not, Jesus chastises the Jews for not killing their disobedient children like instructed by Old Testament law (Mark 7:9). And before anyway says that the Old Testament is invalid upon Jesus' coming, they can think again given his OWN words, "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest part or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place" (Matthew 5:17). And lastly, I present to you a passage from The Book of Deuteronomy, in which God demands that parents kill their children for being, well, children. God hereby states that a son whose behavior is "stubborn", "rebellious" or "overly-rambunctious" perhaps (i.e.), must be brought to the elders of the city. If the ends justify the means (and sure enough the parents' testimony alone will be enough), "All the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear” (Deuteronomy 21:18-21).

All in all, there is absolutely no Biblical consolidation for Christians' claims that God is "Pro-Life." As you now can see, any and all claims are clearly either ignorant, deceitful, arrogant, blinded by brainwash etc. All of the above scriptures cannot be "reinterpreted" away like Christians love to do so liberally. And the point is a human right, a woman's right to choose, has been conspiratorially in constant jeopardy because of people saying they stand for the a message that's nonexistent in who do not read their own Bible. The recommended solace is this: Since God supports neither "Pro-Life" advocates nor "Pro-Choice" advocates, Christianity should be removed from the controversy entirely. The decision whether to stand "Pro-Choice" or "Pro-Choice" should never be infringed, compromised, or be in any way anything other than a personal decision. Explicitly, the decision to condone or condemn abortion should, as should all personal human liberties alike, should be respected. We live in in a country where we are protected by the First Amendment, which means religion and state cannot go hand-in-hand. But funny enough, most formidable perhaps of all is one New Testament quote which you may hear Biblicists even occasionally talk of: Romans 13: 1-7 SPECIFICALLY INSTRUCTS, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which god has established. The authorities that exist have been established by god. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what god has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves." Resolutely wrapping up all of the topic's heated discussion (any rational one anyway) with a perfect, bittersweet ending—

And I think that says it all.
