It would be an easy thing for us to sit back and criticize politicians. We are not faced with the pressures that they have to face. They have to deal with a plethora of views on many complicated and technical issues. They have blacks, whites, males and females to keep happy. But when someone whiffs on a clear cut issue, then it should be readily apparent when the politician is simply giving up. This is once again happening in Alabama.

The churchgoing governor of Alabama has restored the state’s Medicaid contract with the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, filing a joint motion in court to resolve a lawsuit over the matter after initially vowing to appeal.
How can you be so adamant and then cave so quickly? I understand that Bentley probably knew that he could not win. I know that he was spinning his wheels. But, at least in defeat he could claim innocence. He would then not be guilty of the crime of murder.
If we look at Bentley’s statement, I believe we will notice that there is not a moral dilemma over abortion.

Bentley said at a press conference Monday afternoon he did not attempt to consult PPSE before pulling their contract. But he said he believed Alabama’s actions, along with those of other states, forced Planned Parenthood to end the program.
“It was a win,” the governor said. “Headlines may not show it was a win, but it was a win. When you can get an organization like Planned Parenthood that was doing such despicable things as selling body parts – regardless of how you feel about abortion, and whether you think abortion should be legal or not, selling body parts and doing an abortion to harvest body parts is a despicable act.”
But for the Christian, it is not what is done with the baby parts; it is that they are killing babies. How can we separate the act of murder from dismemberment? Would we have said that it is okay to kill the Jews of Europe as long as they were not burned in an oven? If the Nazis had simply thrown them into trash cans, it was okay? No!
The problem is that these politicians do not see abortion for what it really is, and that is murder. And it is a holocaust worse than that of the Jews. At least with the Jews they were adults. They had the choice of seeking to defend themselves. This does not in any way mean that they were no in most cases helpless, but they were not the unborn.
And we have surpassed the number of Nazi Germany. How can God not find us guilty? How can America and the Western Nations as a whole escape the fate of Germany? And while the death toll and guilt pile up to heaven, foolish men like Bentley proclaim themselves as heroes.

“The national pressure from Alabama and other states led Planned Parenthood to change its practices and no longer engage in the despicable and inhumane practice of selling organs of unborn children,” he said. “I will always fight to protect the rights of the unborn. If any medical provider in Alabama engages in practices that are contrary to accepted standards in the future, we will use every means necessary and available to ensure that those practices end.”
So the right of the unborn to be born is not infringed by Planned Parenthood? What a stupid man. God is clear. If murderers are not punished in a society, then God will punish the society.
30 ‘If anyone kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death at the evidence of witnesses, but no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness. 31 Moreover, you shall not take ransom for the life of a murderer who is guilty of death, but he shall surely be put to death. 32 You shall not take ransom for him who has fled to his city of refuge, that he may return to live in the land before the death of the priest. 33 So you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it. 34 You shall not defile the land in which you live, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the Lord am dwelling in the midst of the sons of Israel.'”
In the New Testament, God dwells in any land where the Church, the true Israel of God is found. Therefore, cowards like Bentley are dooming our society and the Church sets by and does nothing.
Does that not make us all cowards?
