The Pro-life march happened yesterday. People came from all over to march in DC. They did it, to show solidarity in their fight. They did it to bring attention to their cause. They did it because they want change. They did it because they are Christian. And, the biggest thing to come out of it, for me, personally; was seeing the pharisaism and hypocrisy some of them put on display.
Pharisee – a member of a religious sect, distinguished by strict observance of traditional law, and commonly held to have pretensions to superior sanctity.
Hypocrisy – the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.
Yup. That would be them.
I’ve got no issue with their cause. I have attended pro-life marches in the past, myself. I just understand it a little differently. I’m pro-life. Pro-all life, not just one segment. And, I do not think God wants me to force my beliefs on others (He doesn’t violate free-will, why should I?). What can I say? I failed Basic Pharisaism. In fact, I failed all of my Religious-Control classes.
But they didn’t. These are your experts and teachers. Watch and learn.
Let’s start with the hypocrisy…such hypocrisy.
While they were planning their yearly march, I watched them mock and judge everyone else for doing the same thing. Is Colin Kapernick any less peaceful? Is his issue not pro-life enough? Why is kneeling on a sideline an unpatriotic display, but walking down the street the will of God? Meryl Streep should keep her mouth shut and not use her platform, but Pastor I-am-God should yell through a mega-phone using his. What were those election protesters called? Oh. Right. Snowflakes. Justifiable Black anger is thug-life. And, the Indigenous People’s fight for their sacred land is nonsensical.
Apparently, in America, only Pro-life Christians can have an issue worth fighting for. The rest of us need to meet with their approval first. Rest assured, we won’t get it because nothing else matters once you’re born.
What about that Pharisaism?
Those self-righteous, religious individuals laid out a smorgasbord of judgment and hate for the Women’s March. You know, those people who marched down the same streets as the pro-lifers. And a lot of other streets. In a lot of other places. All. Over. The. World.
The Woman’s March covered a vast array of concerns, but true to style, certain Holier-than-Thous, disregarded every positive aspect about it, in favor of negative judgment. People who were, by choice, not a part of the movement; not a part of the march, decided, on behalf of more than three million people, what the Women’s March was about, and decided, it was wrong.
If that isn’t a lovely pile of pretentious bullshit?
After concluding the largest demonstration in the world was about nothing more than wanting abortions, hating God and trying to be men, they benevolently, used their pro-life march as an opportunity to pray for the Women’s Marcher’s souls; a thing anybody can do at home, by themselves, while they are praying for their own. (But then, who would see it and know how gracious and god-like they are?)
Do you know why they made a show of that? I mean other than Matthew 6:5
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
It wasn’t because Madonna and Ashley Judd said bad words any more than it was about Colin Kapernick disrespecting the troops.
Just like every other protest, pro-life is an issue some people want to fight for. But it is tragic when some people use unborn babies as their banner and justification for hate. Clearly, control is their actual game. Retaliation -whether it’s a backhanded comment, a cry of unpatriotic kneeling, or a public prayer against strangers- is what they do to people they can’t control.
They call it God and then wonder why nobody believes them.
