Texas and the Cracked Idols
The slaves of Moloch, Mammon and Baal still walk among us and offer their bloody sacrifices.
See, when I was looking at social media, these places of inner darkness, there was a lot of crying and gnashing of teeth and I was excited and asked where are your gods now?
When the Texas Heartbeat Abortion Act went into effect this week, the servants of Moloch went wild. Women and their male “allies” (more precisely not men – many acolytes in the mystery religions of antiquity castrated themselves) lamented their weary complaints about Sharia law, about Christian fascism, about the self-hatred that must drive other women to the unborn defend. Some 60 million human babies have been offered ever since roe affirmed our Punic piety in 1973, went through the acid fire of syringe and scissors and tweezers. You’d think that would be enough to quench a lot of bloodthirst, but the Lone Star State’s effective sacrifice ban after the sixth week of gestation aroused the anger and despair of the passionate religious who saw profanity.
For abortion activists it was a violation of the sacred, a defilement of their heights, and the prostration of altars. By now you know the thrust of Texas law, but let me summarize it again. It prohibits abortions from the point at which an ultrasound can detect the unborn baby’s heartbeat, which can occur as early as the sixth week of pregnancy, instead of tying protection to some sort of definition of “viability” for the child. “Our Creator gave us the right to life and yet every year millions of children lose their right to life through abortion.” Governor Greg Abbott said when he signed the bill last Wednesday.
Perhaps it is unfair to associate America’s cult of “reproductive rights” with a lesser deity of Canaan when it was an older, greater god. Mammon rules the land, and it is in his service that women so eagerly separate from their sexes and turn the safety of the womb into a grave. It is argued that a woman must be able to choose whether her child will live or die because there should be no difference between a man’s and a woman’s experiences or opportunities in the market. If it is not naturally burdened with pregnancy or the most intimate care of a newborn’s life, then law and technology must enable it to shed the necessities of biology in order to better give itself to economic production, living sacrifices for the mammon.
From the perspective of the entire war on abortion in America, victory in this battle in Texas is mostly for the introduction of an innovative tactic, a tactic that is essentially right but perceived as wrong with the mammon – the liberal sees his gods everywhere. The law allows private parties to bring civil suits against those who perform or assist an abortion after a heartbeat is detected, and success in court entitles the plaintiff to a minimum of $ 10,000 in damages. While Mammon’s servants typically sue executing government officials before abortion restrictions go into effect and tie the initiatives into endless and criminally expensive litigation, these officials are not the executing parties here, and hence a court cannot order their enforcement.
America is a contentious country and Americans are a contentious people. The potential harm per successfully challenged abortion is less a bounty than the reimbursement of costs for something no civilization can survive without: law enforcement. You’d think that dollars like this should go to mothers-to-be to help them look after their children, to which I and Texas say, yes, of course we can do both. In the controversy over the Heartbeat Act, the promise of the Texan legislature was not discussed $ 100 million to the state Alternatives to Abortion Programwhich includes everything from advice and professional training to car seats and residential assistance. Initiatives like these will be as important to victory in the long war as any legislative and judicial victory.
It was the tactic of private civil action enforcement that allowed the law to go into effect without interference from the liberal sanctuary, the US Supreme Court. And it is this inaction that causes the faction to feel betrayed in favor of “election”, shocked that their temple, which has bestowed miracles such as same-sex marriage, would not now defend this bloody sacrament. The believers who lit Ruth Bader Ginsburg candles, kept the watch, protested at the appointed times and marched in the bacchanals during the holy month – they must now grasp the possibility that there really is a time for each purpose Heaven: a time to plant and a time to pluck what is planted; a time to win 5 to 4 and a time to lose 5 to 4.
All of this reminds me of another Canaanite fertility god, Baal, whom the Lord shamed on Mount Carmel by the prophet Elijah. Elijah challenged those who ate at Jezebel’s table (I wonder if Jezebel has a nice expense account), the prophets of Baal and Asherah, call on their god for divine fire so that the sacrificial animal may be consumed.
So they took the bull that had been given to them and prepared it and called on the name of Baal from morning until noon and said, “O Baal, hear us!” But there was no voice; nobody answered. Then they jumped around the altar they had made. And so Elijah mocked her at noon and said, “Shout out loud, for he is a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is traveling, or maybe he is sleeping and needs to be woken up. “
But there was no voice; no one answered, no one paid any attention. And before that silence, the hysteria of abortion advocates has reached new heights. No, the Supreme Court didn’t tip roe by refusing to act in this case. It just decided that there is no one who can stop the law from going into effect.
But praise the Lord, His truth marches on and there will be more heartbeat bills and roe overthrown and finally the slaughter of 60 million is ended. And so I ask those who cook again, where are your gods now?
