Christmas with Congress, a seat for aborted souls

" 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 treat His name like a leper. 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
