The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

I Have a Dream

Happy Birthday Video
Is this the dream that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. died for? Is this the dream that President-elect Barack Obama stands for? May God have mercy on us all. (See blackgenocide.org).

It is ironic that those who support the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. do not really believe those words. There was a time in this country when Jim Crowe laws and segregation laws were used unjustly to oppress and torment the Negro race. And in the face of such injustice one man arose to challenge the immorality and cruelty of such laws. That man was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Recently, this country elected its first African American man as President of the United States of America. While we have struggled with national sins like the mistreatment and even genocide of native America Indian tribes and the institution of slavery and the injustices inflicted upon the black race, the glaring irony here is that no one really believes the "I have a dream" speech. That speech quotes from the United States Constitution and says that all men are created equal and have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

But I ask you today, do the unborn children in their own mother's wombs have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? And what race is excluded from this incomprehensible onslaught against the most innocent among us, the most helpless to defend themselves? Yes, black babies and white babies and Chinese babies and native American babies and Japanese babies and Korean babies and Latino babies and babies of every race and ethnic group in these United States are slaughtered and murdered by the million every year in this country. On what basis do we justify murdering a child that would otherwise be alive if it were just delivered from the womb of his or her own mother? A child who is granted either life by one doctor who delivers it from the prison of his or her mother's womb or a child who is partially delivered then murdered with a pair of scissors stabbed into her helpless head by another doctor dedicated to death, dismemberment, and the slaughter of the unborn.

And on what basis do we justify such cruelty, such murderous acts? It is on the basis of individual freedom and justice we are told. So a mother has the right to slaughter her own baby for the sake of convenience and her own freedom, her own right to life while at the same time denying life, liberty and a bright future to her own child who is already alive and capable of living outside his or her mother's womb.

A country or a society in this world with no conscience for the fragile and innocent life of a baby shall not long endure. Ironic indeed is it that such societies stand for the rights of Negroes while allowing the murder of Negro babies yet viable and capable of life outside the womb. Ironic indeed is it that the rights of the perverted are upheld so that they may marry or change their physical appearance to one of the opposite sex while innocent children are sacrificed on the altar of antinomian licentiousness masquerading as individual freedom.

Those who struggle to preserve the environment as a legacy for future generations yet condone and fight for the right to murder unborn children as if children are less valuable than a tree or an endangered species of animal. Those who would save the whale would destroy a million babies every year and cast their tiny bodies into trash cans as if they were merely so much garbage to be disposed of without thought or conscience or regret. Those who love the long leaf pine hate and despise people who are yet unborn but crying for the right to live, to breathe, to become the man or woman God intended for them to be.

Yes, unfortunately, when freedom becomes perverted and twisted, when freedom is no longer rooted and grounded in God's revelation of Himself in Holy Scripture, the result is a godless atheism which masquerades as a champion of human rights. It is a godless atheism which no longer believes in God or the Bible but pretends to be the moral conscience of a nation which has no conscience. In the name of a sentimentalized view of perversion it runs roughshod over the rights of Christians to speak the name of Jesus Christ, to worship freely, and to preach the Biblical doctrine of moral law freely. They would call us do-gooders who stand for the rights of the unborn child as equal to the rights of his or her own mother who with malice, forethought, and cruelty pays a doctor and an abortion clinic to dismember her baby and "get rid of it."

We live in a country where good has been called evil and where evil has been called good, all in the name of a God they do not really believe in. Where the concept of a personal God becomes merely a myth to be manipulated by society for propaganda purposes all sorts of evil and immorality prevails in the name of individual freedom. Such freedom is not truly freedom at all. It is a bondage, an addiction to evil and a principality of evil which enslaves human freedom to a despicable evil which can never be justified no matter how many popular leaders speak in its favor to their own political gain.

When a nation pretends to be the moral conscience of the world, an example to the world of human rights and human freedom while at the same time murdering its own infants capable of human life if they were but one step outside of their mothers' womb, it is the utmost and penultimate hypocrisy of self delusion and self deception. When a nation no longer bases civil law upon the moral law of God and upon the natural law revealed even in human reason, then the result is every sort of perversion of good one can imagine. It is the perversion of marriage between one man and one woman. It is the perversion of the gender and physical attributes of male and female in the name of individual freedom. It is the perversion of life in favor of the killing of innocent babies. It is the genocide of the least able to defend themselves. It is the mercy killing of the elderly in the name of convenience.

We have become a nation unwilling to sacrifice our own time for charity, for love of neighbor so that we may endlessly pursue our own individual freedom and happiness which is no happiness at all. True joy and happiness can only come at the price of loving God and neighbor as you love yourself. Loving your unborn baby more than lost opportunities and loving your elderly parents more than your own individual freedom is a moral obligation instilled within each human heart which is created in the image and likeness of God our creator. Even Abraham Lincoln instinctively believed that all men were "created" equal. And if unborn children are "created" by God and have certain inalienable rights, who then can without conscience and with malice kill such delicate creatures as if they were merely just so much refuse to be cast aside as rag dolls or used as lab materials for human experimentation?

Yes, the irony of the first African-American President of the United States is beyond all doubt the greatest hypocrisy of all human history. We have a man who claims to stand for the rights of all--the rights of gay and straight, male and female, rich and poor, and white and black--yet openly and without shame promotes the legal right of women to murder with the approval of the United States of America their own helpless children moving within their own wombs. I agree with the so-called "reverend," Jeremiah Wright. The chickens are coming home to roost. God may yet damn America if it does not repent soon.

African-Americans like President-elect Barack Obama, who claim to believe that all human beings are created equal, have merely become oppressors, tyrants, and murderers if they promote the right of a woman to murder her own living child within her own womb. A child should be safest with his or her own mother but in this nation it is the most dangerous place to be for over 1.2 million children every single year since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. When will the holocaust stop? When will the war against innocent babies be over? I pray that God will change the hearts and minds of Americans so that they will see how great their sin and their hardness of heart has become.

May God have mercy on us all!


Soli Deo Gloria!
