Tea Party Prevarication

Prevarication: to speak or act in an evasive way; origins in the Latin praevaricat– ‘walked crookedly, deviated.’ Here is a straight shot, employing great logic, with great consequences in a blog posting at Desiring God.

“Tea Party Prevarication” by John Piper

According to the New York Times “The Tea Party leaders . . . deliberately avoid discussion of issues like . . . abortion. . . . [They] argue that the country can ill afford the discussion about social issues when it is passing on enormous debts to future generations.”

Let me see if I understand this term “ill afford”.

Is this it? Enormous debt will hurt our children and grandchildren. Therefore don’t talk about the lawfulness of whether they can be killed.

Something like that?

49,551,703 dead….

On this date in 1973, the US Supreme Court made a horrific decision to legalize abortion throughout the country. Since that date, the consequences of Roe v. Wade are 49,551,703 children killed in the womb. More info here.

We do thank God that the annual number of abortions has declined in recent years, but abortion remains an evil stain upon our land. Let us pray and work to undo this wretched legal situation, and protect and sanctify life in the womb.
