Piper: Obama Blinded by Culture of Deceit

An excerpt from John Piper’s message last Sunday:

“As everyone knows, our new President, over whom we have rejoiced, does not share this reverence for the beginning of human life. He is trapped and blinded by a culture of deceit. On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, he said, “We are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters.”

To which I say . . .

  • No, Mr. President, you are not protecting women’s health; you are authorizing the destruction of half a million tiny women every year.
  • No, Mr. President, you are not protecting reproductive freedom; you are authorizing the destruction of freedom for a million helpless people every year.
  • No, Mr. President, killing our children does not cease to be killing our children no matter how many times you call it a private family matter. Call it what you will, they are dead, and we have killed them. And you, Mr. President, would keep the killing legal.

Some of us wept with joy over the inauguration of the first African-American President. We will pray for you. And may God grant that there arises in your heart an amazed and happy reverence for the beginning of every human life.”

I would add that many people would be critical of criticizing Obama, pointing out the many defenciencies of Bush, or other former presidents, sort of like “Take the plank out of your eye before you tell your brother about the splinter in his.”  However, in order for such criticism to be valid, it would need to point out big-picture defeciencies and contradictions.  Was President Bush pro-life as one who authorized torture?  Well, who was he torturing, for what reasons, and what methods of torture were being used?  As for President Obama, he is not pro-life, but pro-death, and he is rather proud of this.  President Bush might at least claim he was seeking to protect American lives; President Obama only wishes to protect the right to destroy American lives, and any life anywhere, for that matter.
