Christmas with Congress,
a seat for aborted souls
as seen at FreeRepublic  by Jen Shroder

"A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."
Matt 2:18

In Bethlehem, Herod killed all male children under 2 years of age because he felt threatened. On Capitol Hill, battles are raging to keep the abortion mills running. Who threatens you, Pelosi? Why are you determined to murder our children, Reid?

If they succeed, the vote is shaping up for Christmas Eve, a night when we are all reminded of the Christ born in a manger, a star to guide the wise men and shepherds to his birthplace. What star will shine for our wise men on Capitol Hill?

Today in Washington, the usual suspects are plotting negotiations for votes while Larry Klayman accuses Obama of secret deals with lobbyists such as Planned Parenthood, a violation of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. Lies by Herod, lies by Obama, how did this story of infanticide come full circle and land on Christmas Eve? These are the beginnings of great sorrows.

We have been saturated with negative propaganda about Christ and Christianity from the media, our education systems censor His name. Many are becoming offended by the message of Christ just as Jesus predicted. Our Constitution, originally drafted by godly men, is crumbling before our eyes, lawlessness abounds and the greatest of sorrows is born by childless mothers weeping for their children.

The Bible warns of these woes and we feel them. We shudder as we read the news applauding Representatives like Lois Capps, currently "threatening to derail the legislation if a House-Senate conference committee does not remove language that would restrict access to abortions."

The swords of Herod must swing.

Rob Hotakainen began his article, "Capps Steps into Abortion Spotlight," with the words: "As a school nurse long ago, Rep. Lois Capps worked with children of the uninsured, getting eyeglasses for them with help from the local Lions Club."

So what was running through Capps’ mind as she handed out eyeglasses? Did she think these children didn’t deserve to live? How did she come to the conclusion that we absolutely must keep the abortion mills churning after distributing to the needy? Was she coldly thinking "brats" as she smiled, hiding her thoughts of "better if you’d never been born"? I know this sounds harsh but there it is in black and white. If she served as a school nurse and came out on fire to push for abortion, what was she thinking? Are only the rich entitled to bear children? Keep the eyeglasses, this is one "nurse" I wouldn’t want anywhere near my child!

So as you tuck in your children on Christmas Eve, touched by their innocent faces as they nod off to sleep, know that men have gathered in Congress much as Herod’s soldiers gathered in the night to take up their swords. If Congressmen vote the way of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Capps, know that their actions will keep the blood flowing from millions more to come.

I urge all of us to pray, pray for our little ones and for all the childless moms that were misled and are weeping because their children are no more. The days are growing colder both in the hearts and minds on the hill.

Congressmen, put aside Pelosi, put aside your seats, put aside your treasures and see to your souls. If you sign this health care bill complete with the abortion language that Pelosi and Capps lust after, then you will have consigned America to stoke the fires of hell itself.

May God have mercy on our nation.

God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

    I thought it was a good article. The parallels in the original Christmas story and the abomonation planned for Christmas Eve has been on my mind a lot lately. In my opinion:
    Obama/Reid/Pelozi are the new Herods in a modern day version of the Christmas story.

    Reading from the Bible - Matthew 2:16-18:

    16. When Herod realized that he had been deceived by the magi, he became furious. He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had ascertained from the magi.
    17. Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the prophet:
    18. "A voice was heard in Ramah, sobbing and loud lamentation; Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled, since they were no more."

    King Herod wanted to kill Jesus. He settled for a general massacre of baby boys in and around Bethlehem.

    Obama wants to destroy any remaining Judeo Christian culture in our once great nation. He will settle for increased abortions funded by either the insurance buying public or taxpayers.

    President Obama = King Herod

    It's as simple as that. Please remind your friends about the part of the Christmas story that is rarely portrayed in pageants: Herod's massacre of the innocents.
    Granted it is horrifying but so is 50 million government sanctioned abortions. And remember, Obama wants you to pay for abortions and in so doing be complicit in the act.

    There is no way in hell I will ever raise a child in this disgusting society.

    Christmas has always been a season of sorrow for me. Now it will be a season of hatred.

    I will not spread good tidings and joy this season, only cruelty and malice towards all liberals.

    Or, raise up lots of Christian warriors to fight the satanic forces of the DemonRat party.

    By the time they are old enough to fight, the war will be utterly lost.

    The ‘Rats will implode from within. Socialism fails EVERY TIME. It will be quick. I see foresee a lot of ropes being strung up. The tyrants will pay as they always do.

    Careful my friend. One of the Enemy’s wiles is to goad you in this direction. Don’t let them poison you, and taint your life.

    God is not mocked. There will be a reckoning with these murdering cowards.

    I have been comparing BHO to Herod for well over a year. The posing as a god, plus his opposition to BAIPA told me all I needed to know about this gutless villain.

    The article ends:
    May God have mercy on our nation.

    I would add:
    And may He judge our government and its members as they deserve, and swiftly.

    At some point, guilt for these cannibalistic policies will attach to us if we are complacent.

    Obama-Reid-Pelosi and democrat congress baby killers equal to Herod. Thank you for this article. May God have mercy on our nation. We do not want this law.

    The parallel could not be clearer. The idea of voting on this Bill on Christmas Eve insuring that women not only have the ability to access abortuaries, but that it will be paid for by everyone, is an Obamanation.

    The “sequestration” of funds is probably the most insulting thing the Congress can propose.

    I’m trying but it’s getting harder.

  12. Psalm 1449:09 PM

    To: Soothesayer
    You are not alone. I struggle with it daily.

    I finally had to picture the gaping, screaming, hate filled maw of Jeremiah Wirght, and the ‘hood’ affectation when BHO torques his phenomenally ugly mouth up towards his left earlobe and snarls his imbecilic condemnations. Then I think: “If I would not let these people infect me with gonorrhea, why would I allow them to infect me with their hate, which does much more damage and is harder to be rid of”.

    This usually helps. You have my sincere sympathy.
