Ohio Aborts Abortion Mill

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/08/02

An “women’s health clinic” (read: abortion mill) got closed down because it grossly failed its health inspection. A Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Northeast Ohio got a big, fat fine because it failed its health inspection.

It’s not like it was a surprise what they needed to do. They have all the regulations available to them. It’s an open-book exam. And, apparently, an open-and-shut case.

(I’m allowed to mix my metaphors because my brother’s the University English professor, not me.)

Abortion Stories As Told By Abortion Survivors

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/07/20

In light of Senate Democrats’ 100 percent vote to allow abortion on demand until the day a child is born, in an attempt to stop the various States from enacting any restrictions or protections, I have decided to reprint an article I wrote in 2012.

From Teen Breaks.com:

Gianna Jessen
My name is Gianna Jessen… I was aborted, and I did not die. My biological mother was 7 months pregnant when she went to Planned Parenthood in southern California, and they advised her to have a late-term saline abortion.

A saline abortion is a solution of salt saline that is injected into the mother’s womb. The baby then gulps the solution. It burns the baby inside and out, and then the mother is to deliver a dead baby within 24 hours.

This happened to me! I remained in the solution for approximately 18 hours and was delivered ALIVE… in a California abortion clinic. There were young women in the room who had already been given their injections and were waiting to deliver dead babies. When they saw me the abortionist was not yet on duty and had me transferred to the hospital.

I should be blind, burned… I should be dead! And yet, I live! Due to a lack of oxygen supply during the abortion I live with cerebral palsy.

When I was diagnosed with this, all I could do was lie there. They said that was all I would ever do! Through prayer and hard work by my foster mother, I was walking at age 3 ½ with the help of a walker and leg braces. At that time I was also adopted into a wonderful family. Today I am left only with a slight limp. I no longer have need of a walker or leg braces.

…Death did not prevail over me… and I am so thankful!

Claire Culwell’s April 2010 story from Stand For Life:

Putting a Face To What You’re Fighting For

By Claire Culwell

 

A year ago, when I was 21 years old, I met the woman who gave birth to me. I had always dreamed about the day I would meet her, and it NEVER involved the most significant part of it all…learning that I was an ABORTION SURVIVOR. She was 13 years old when she became pregnant with me and the only option she knew of (according to her mother) was abortion. She proceeded to go to an abortion clinic nearby where she had an abortion. A few weeks later she realized she was still pregnant and decided to go to an out-of-state late-term abortion clinic to have a second abortion. During her examination at the late-term abortion clinic, she was told that she had been pregnant with TWINS. One was aborted, and one survived. She was also told that it was too late to have even a late-term abortion. She decided to give me up for adoption when I was born two weeks later. If you ask her now, she will tell you that if she had known the results of abortion vs. adoption, she would have gone straight to the adoption agency instead. Putting me up for adoption (and giving me the best family I can imagine) was a life-changing decision for all of us.

Because of the abortion, I was born 2 ½ months premature and weighed 3 lbs 2 oz. I was on life support and had to stay in the hospital for 2 ½ months until I could be brought home. My hips were dislocated and my feet were turned (because during the abortion, the sac that held my body together was broken) and when I was brought home I had 2 casts on my feet and a harness. I was put in a body cast for 4 months, and I didn’t walk until I was over 2 years old. It still affects me even today.

Pro-Life? Can’t Vote Democrat

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/07/19

The Editor of The First Street Journal found another lying Democrat. There are some rules of writing that say when a word is defined in part by a qualifier, the qualifier is unnecessarily redundant; therefore, it is unnecessarily redundant to add the qualifier “lying” to the word “Democrat”. Democrats win elections by lying. There is a good chance that Democrats would never have more than a small minority position in most State Legislatures and the US government without their lies. Republicans want to throw granny over the cliff. Republicans have a war on women. Republicans are all racists. Heck, the race card has been so overplayed as to not mean anything anymore. Democrats have fought for all the Civil Rights Laws we have in this country. The long list of proven Democrat lies could go on forever. So what’s so important that the Editor of The First Street Journal would point out another Democrat lying? It’s the Pro-Life nature of the Democrat. Or, rather, it’s the lie that he’s in any way Pro-Life at all.

Well, we have just found out how pro-life Senator Casey really is. The pro-abortion forces introduced S. 1696, the Women’s Health Protection Act, which is designed to eliminate state restrictions on abortion, through the entire nine months of pregnancy. It was in response to restrictions imposed in states like Texas, where abortion clinics are required to meet rigorous safety and health standards. The Texas law1 is designed, unquestionably, to reduce the number of abortion clinics in the Lone Star State, but it was also in response to “Dr” Kermit Gosnell’s little shop of horrors. When it came time to actually vote on S. 1696, the devout Roman Catholic, pro-life Senator Casey, who represents the state in which “Dr” Gosnell was “practicing,” voted for the bill, as did every other Democrat in the Senate.2

With that vote, Senator Casey just told us, through deeds, that his words are nothing but lies. Senator Casey could have attempted to provide some “moderation,” some bit of pro-life sentiment, which he claims to have, by voting against the bill, because, in the end, the bill is both symbolic and meaningless: its chance of passage by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives is infinitesimally small.


If you’re Pro-Life, you cannot vote Democrat. Because Democrats are only Pro-Life to get your vote. Afterward, they are pro-abort in every sense of the word. But you also have to be careful which Republican gets your vote. Because there’s more than one Republican who is pro-abort. And no Democrat wants you to see the photos to the left, because that might make you vote against the Democrat and against abortion on demand.

I contributed to help make the Gosnell movie happen. You can, too. Go to www.gosnellmovie.com and you can help make an important movie happen. Hot Air has some important news about who is blocking the attempt to crowdfund, and two actors who have made youtube videos in support of the crowdfunding.

If You Have A #Pro-Life Site That Is Working To Prevent #Abortion

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/23

If you have a Pro-Life site that is working to prevent abortions, please let me know about it. If your site is working in the crisis pregnancy realm, so much the better. I want to compile a list of Pro-Life sites for my side-bar, a way to reach out to the nation at-large. And I’m very interested in providing resources to young women who find themselves in the scary position of being pregnant with no hope for the future. Sites, services, organizations offering abortion alternatives and counseling are very much welcome and desired.

Young women who are unexpectedly expectant need easy access to caring people who will help them in their hour of need, and I want to help be a conduit to those services they seek. And this is where you come in. If you run a site, work for an organization that runs a site, know an organization with a site that offers loving guidance, let me know about it so I can add it to my site.

Vote For Barack Obama And Kill A Baby

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/10/22

Barack Obama is pro-abortion. He’s so pro-abortion that he voted against the partial birth abortion ban, which prevents murderers from delivering 90 percent of a baby, sucking that baby’s brains out, then delivering the rest of the baby. He’s also so pro-abortion that he voted against a law that requires doctors and nurses to care for a baby born alive after an attempted abortion, purposefully allowing that living, breathing baby to die.

From On The Issues.org:
 

1997: opposed bill preventing partial-birth abortion

In 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. In the US Senate, Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell research. He has voted against requiring minors who get out-of-state abortions to notify their parents. The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gives Obama a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record in the Senate for 2005, 2006, and 2007. Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.238-239 , Aug 1, 2008

 

Opposed legislation protecting born-alive failed abortions

Obama has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child.

On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would “forbid abortions to take place.” Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, “then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.238 , Aug 1, 2008

When you vote for Barack Obama, you vote for this evil monstrosity and this crime against humanity.

Democrats prove the “war on women” garbage was just a political ploy as they once again have no desire to make abortion anything other than a convenient way to avoid Personal Responsibility.

LL1885

Punished With A Girl…


In case you missed it in between all the star-studded fundraising and DOJ Fast and Furious dodging, the House killed a bill that would make it illegal for doctors to perform abortions based on the gender of the unborn child. Talk about the ultimate war on women and truly trying to play God. The idea is repulsive, to put it mildly.

From The Washington Examiner:

The House on Thursday rejected a bill that would have made it illegal for doctors to perform abortions based solely on the gender of the unborn baby.

In a 246-168 vote, Democrats prevented Republicans from securing the two-thirds majority needed to pass the measure, which Republicans said is needed to protect unborn females they claim are more likely to be targeted for “sex-selective” abortions.

Democrats said Republicans’ decision to force a vote on the measure using a parliamentary maneuver that…

Conservatives Understand Liberals #tcot

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/15

But Liberals don’t understand Conservatives.

This has been widely known to be true for a very long time, but a study has only recently come out proving such to be the case. And it also helps to explain why the radical Left, such as the Obama administration and the Reid-Pelosi Congress, thought their problem was a communications problem instead of what it truly was: a complete and total fully informed rejection of their agenda.

Tina Korbe wrote an article last week regarding the research, which was publicized a week or so prior to her article.

At The American, AEI resident scholar Andrew Biggs highlights an interesting study that confirms what most conservatives probably already know to be true of themselves: We understand why our liberal friends think what they think more than they understand why we think what we think. [link to the article]

[University of Virginia professor Jonathan] Haidt’s research asks individuals to answer questionnaires regarding their core moral beliefs—what sorts of values they consider sacred, which they would compromise on, and how much it would take to get them to make those compromises. By themselves, these exercises are interesting. (Try them online and see where you come out.)

But Haidt’s research went one step further, asking self-indentified conservatives to answer those questionnaires as if they were liberals and for liberals to do the opposite. What Haidt found is that conservatives understand liberals’ moral values better than liberals understand where conservatives are coming from. Worse yet, liberals don’t know what they don’t know; they don’t understand how limited their knowledge of conservative values is. If anyone is close-minded here it’s not conservatives.

Haidt has one theory to explain his results, while Biggs has another. Haidt says conservatives speak a broader and more encompassing language of six moral values, while liberals focus on a narrow subset of those values. Biggs says conservatives understand liberal positions because they’re inundated with them — by the media, by academia, even to a certain extent by the culture.

Haidt and Biggs both have a point. It takes just about a year of actively debating politics or witnessing the debate of politics to realize that (a) the two parties to the debate don’t speak the same language and (b) the liberal party will have few opportunities to learn the conservative’s language. It’s not only that we don’t use the same words, it’s that we also assign completely different meanings to the same words.

I wanted to take the same surveys from both perspectives to see how well I did but couldn’t find the way to do so. I did, however, find a long list of surveys to take, and I think I did fairly well. It’s a rather easy process. Follow the above link, register (which surveys your self-declarations for use during your survey-taking), then take whatever surveys you wish. Of course, I self-identified as Very Conservative, Very Conservative fiscally, Very Conservative socially (and Very Conservative on any other questions I have likely forgotten). How did I rate compared to Liberals, Conservatives, Libertarians?

First, how well did I do logically and how well did I do defeating bias inputs I received?

So, both my blog name (Truth Before Dishonor) and my byline (I’d rather be right than popular) are quite apt. Now, onto other charts. Read the rest of this entry »

Photos Of Candace Cameron! (@candacecbure)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/07

This is one beautiful young woman! And I loved her on Full House!

Candace Cameron Bure in her little black dress.

Candace Cameron can cowgirl up!

Yes, Candace Cameron is absolutely beautiful. And she carries her beauty without indecency. But, boys, put your tongues back in your mouths. She’s happily married and has children.

If you think that doesn’t matter, consider this: Tomorrow is one of the Holiest of days for her, her husband and children, and her brother. That’s right, folks, she’s one of those hated Christians! Just like me! And just like multiple authors here! She and her brother, Kirk Cameron

(And if you haven’t seen that movie, you had better go out and hunt it down! Especially the final arguments!)

are both devout Christians and happily married (to other people, you sick morons). It is possible to live around Hollywood and be in Hollywood, but not be of Hollywood.

To Kirk and Candace, and to all Christians reading this blog, I wish you the most Glorious of Holy Days tomorrow! And to all non-Christians reading this blog, I have this to say:

Jesus willingly went through Hell so you could enter Heaven.

And that’s the rest of the story, as some famous person had a habit of saying.

(Edit: See more Candace Cameron here.)

Barack Obama, You Don’t Speak For Smart Girls #TCOT

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/07

HT Tina Korbe, who is a smart girl.

Barack Obama doesn’t speak for smart girls like my Army Veteran daughter (or her Army and Navy Veteran husband, who isn’t a girl). Teh Won doesn’t speak for my sister, or my female (or male) cousins, or my aunts, or my mother (who cannot imagine anyone actually wanting to kill her unborn child). And the man who claimed “this is the day the oceans began to recede” (or something to that effect) after he was elected definitely does not speak for these Smart Girls:

Several Pro-Life Women (And One Pro-Abort Man)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/03/27

The pro-abort crowd is very vociferous in their hate-filled attitude that men have no voice whatsoever in “a woman’s choice” (unless that man is pro-abort). The pro-abort crowd is also very vociferous in claiming Pro-Life women are merely “men with fun bags” as I clearly showed in my previous article referencing Philadelphia Democrat Legislator Babette Josephs. So the pro-abort crowd only accept the opinions of pro-abort women and pro-abort men (who very much wish not to be saddled with any responsibility related to their conquests of morally challenged women).

I have some photos that I picked up from ChristianProLife, who picked them up from Abolish Human Abortion.

And now, the type of “man” the pro-abort crowd finds acceptable.

Pro-aborts always say a man’s contrary opinion doesn’t count, so why would a man’s opinion count at all? Oh, I know. So it gives cover for all the irresponsible women who want to kill their babies. But seriously, why would any pro-abort seek the aid of that “man” above? He’s a dog who has no chance at all of bedding an educated, refined woman. He’s dregs of society and the women he beds are also dregs of society. Neither of them have any interest in being personally responsible for their actions, or in obeying society’s rules.

But according to Babette Josephs, Democrat Pennsylvania Legislature and Dem leader in a certain committee in the Pennsylvaia Legislature, Pro-Life women are actually men with ta-tas. So every photo above, according to Babette Josephs — herself a useful tool in scaring away rats — is of men, and mostly men with melons, or who will have melons.

Talk to the Pro-Abort women and they’ll tell you “I’m not a snob! Just ask anyone! Anyone who counts, that is!”

UPDATE
The Other McCain has placed this article in its “Headlines” section! Thank you, RS McCain!

Is ‘Pro-Life Woman’ Even Possible?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/03/27

Pennsylvania Legislator Babette Josephs (D - Phila) (click to embiggen, if you dare)

Not according to a Democrat Pennsylvania Legislator from Philadelphia.

‘I don’t believe they’re really women. … I believe they’re men with breasts.’

Baby killer Kermit Gosnell, who did his heinous deeds in Philadelphia, and those like him thank you for all the business you send their way.

Where are all the feminist organizations? Why have they not denounced this Democrat misogynist, and stridently so? Oh, that’s right. The feminist organizations aren’t actually out to support all women or to protect all women from misogynist attacks. They only wish to protect Leftist women from misogynist attacks.

My mother is Pro-Life. My sister is Pro-Life. My daughter is Pro-Life. My cousins, both male and female, both by blood and by marriage, are Pro-Life. In fact, I don’t know a single member of my nuclear or extended family that is pro-abortion. And babs is accusing all the female members of my extended family of being men with boobs. But she gets a pass from the “don’t say bad things about women” crowd because she is a Leftist saying bad things about Conservative women (who don’t really count as women).

When you target a group of people as the source of your woes, then you dehumanize those people, you can kill those people without a pang of guilt, because you have rotted your own brain and propagandized the populace into rotted brains. And when people stand up and rehumanize those you dehumanized, you need to dehumanize the defendants of your victims you had previously dehumanized. And this is exactly what rotted-brained radical Leftists like Babette Josephs are busily doing. They have to dehumanize and de-womanize women who stand up for the Truth: that unborn babies are in actuality humans. Because the radical Left cannot stand for the Truth to be told or to be shown to those who have bought into the pro-abort Lie.

Target a group of people, blame them for holding people down, turn them into non-persons, turn society against them, then exterminate them, all legal-like.

And when people stand up to your evil, Alinskyite, satanic agenda, dehumanize them as well! Just like Babette Josephs is doing to women who refuse to toe the radical Leftist line. But she is not the only radical Leftist woman de-womanizing Conservative women. You remember that Tennessee Democrat who declared you have to lift the skirts of Republican woman voters to prove they’re women (because they don’t vote like women)? If you’re a politically astute Conservative, you absolutely know about that incident. But if you’re a radical Leftist, or if you’re one of millions of uninformed people (that would be ignorant people), chances are you haven’t heard much, if anything, about that. But I’ve covered that incident previously. And on more than one occasion. So has Michelle Malkin, Hot Air, Red State, Free Republic, Rush Limbaugh, and many, many others. (About 14,300,000 results in the above-linked search.)

As Tina Korbe in the very first link said,

Make no mistake: Feminism in its present day iteration does not teach us to use our freedom for something other than motherhood or for something in addition to motherhood. We all know women are capable of bearing fruit in a myriad of ways — not just by having children — and that they should not be denied opportunities to contribute to society in ways other than motherhood.

No, feminism seeks to actually take that freedom from us by obscuring the terms of the debate. A woman who does not know reality has no meaningful freedom to speak of because she has only false choices. A woman, for example, who thinks that she can become pregnant without becoming a mother is unable to make a meaningful choice between non-motherhood and motherhood.

Oh women, please don’t buy the lies! Wake up and claim the freedom that is your due!

What’s Babette complaining about? Women sponsored a Bill in the Pennsylvania Legislature that would require abortionists to show women the ultrasound videos of their babies they are planning to kill. And Babette tried to make that demand for information to be proof that these “men with breasts” don’t believe women can make informed decisions! The requirement to provide information the radical Left don’t want provided is proof that those who require that information be presented to women want women to be ignorant! Who, in his or her right mind, can actually claim that requiring information is a demand that people be uninformed? Only radical Leftists would make that claim!

Oh, and for a bit of Rule 5, a commenter on Hot Air provides the ultimate. Read the rest of this entry »

The Compromise Is Worse Than The Original Demand

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/02/12

That is what many Christians, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, are saying. In fact, that’s what many non-Christians who are Conservative or Libertarian are saying. To what? To the Obama administration’s demand that all Health Insurance cover Birth Control, sterilization, and abortifacients. And, indeed, the compromise is most definitely worse than the original demand. And both are very clearly Unconstitutional. The First Street Journal has a couple articles regarding this turn of events, which are very worth the read. (Okay, that’s more than a couple (but qualifies when using Joe Biden’s numbering abilities), and the absolutely first link provides links to other articles on TSFJ in regard to this issue.)

A couple old nemeses from the now archive-only Common Sense Political Thought, one of which was given a 15-day suspension on TFSJ for multiple threats and intimidation, have entered the fray and have, in the process, proven they have absolutely no understanding whatsoever of the US Constitution. Their lack of understanding in this case is in regard to the First Amendment, specifically the very first half of the First Amendment. (Those two would be Phoenician in a Time of Romans, a New Zealand Socialist and government-paid librarian who trolls Conservative blog-sites while being paid by New Zealand tax-payers, and Perry Hood, a septagenarian radical Leftist resident of Delaware. (And I put their names this far away from the links out of respect for the editor of TFSJ, since neither kook is using his known name or moniker there.)) My response to Perry Hood (Wagonwheel), who absolutely believes absolutely all absolutes are bad and absolutely no absolutes should be held by absolutely any who want to be absolutely better than absolutely any who hold absolutes (just so you understand his absolute rejection of absolutes — and, AOTC, this is an invite for you to post the appropriate Ravi Zacharias YouTube video) is as follows:

Wagonwheel says:

“WW, the point you are missing is the First Amendment where these organizations will be forced to break their religious freedoms.”

Right, Yorkshire, I should have specified private insurers not affiliated with Catholic institutions and/or enterprises. The compromise plan does not mandate that these Catholic institutions/enterprises need provide coverage of contraceptives.

This is where practically every Democrat, Liberal, Socialist (read “Progressive”) has absolutely no idea what the US Constitution says. Absolutely no understanding of what the US Constitution says.

The pertinent Amendment (in fact the very first of the Amendments deemed necessary before several of the 13 States would even consider ratifying the US Constitution) in its entirety:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

You can find the link to the US Constitution online by following my name to my site and scanning my “Worthwhile Links” section.

I highlighted the pertinent part of the Amendment. Just so you on the fringe Left (WagonWheel) understand, I highlighted the very first part of the very first Amendment, which was necessary before various of the 13 States would even consider voting for it! That means it was absolutely, and extremely important to the regular people of the United States that that be very, extremely, clear.

And what does that highlighted part say?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

There is nothing in that absolute restriction on Government (it is understood, through reading the US Constitution, that only Congress can make laws) that says the US Government can make a law restricting someone’s religious freedom, so long as that someone isn’t a recognized organization. If I, as a secular business owner and not a Church, deem abortifacients to be immoral and murderous (and, yes, a drug that causes the body to reject and eject a fertilized egg as part of its goal is a murderous drug) due to my religious belief, the “free exercise” clause of the FIRST AMENDMENT demands that the US Government cannot force me to violate my beliefs by paying for my employees to get that drug “free”. I don’t have to be a Catholic Church. I only have to have that as part of my religious beliefs. And, according to the US Constitution, the Government cannot restrict my exercising my belief in the sanctity of life, in any way, whatsoever.

And that’s what any “compromise” does. It violates the US Constitution. Period.

“When Good compromises with Evil, Evil wins.” Or, “Don’t you know that a little leaven, leavens the whole loaf?” Yeah, look that up. It is most definitely a very important quote-from-memory, that is not even talking about bread or cooking but is, rather, a word-picture to a stiff-necked group of people who whined about absolutes.

The reason it’s so difficult for reasonable people to “compromise” with the Democrat leadership or Obama is because “when Good compromises with Evil, Evil wins” and the Democrat leadership and Barack Obama are very busily pushing items and agendas that are full of absolute Evil. You cannot, you dare not compromise with that.

“Throw The Mormon Out”

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/02/09

I have seen multiple cases of Mitt Romney supporters acting very Alinskyite (read Democrat) in their attempts to demonize the strong opposition to Romney. It’s because Romney is a Mormon, they say, (examples can be found in Hot Air comment threads) completely ignoring Romney’s history and actual actions. Members of a Christian Church stand up and say if Romney is the candidate, they’ll stay home and not vote, and immediately the Romney supporters vilify the people, using straw-man ad hominem charges. They also use false dichotomy attacks, but that is tangential here.

Many people are shocked that so many evangelical Christians reject Mormonism as part of the Christian faith. I briefly touched on why Mormonism is decidedly not Christian in an earlier article. And while Mormonism is decidedly not Christian, that does not mean Christians will reject a Mormon for political office due to his or her faith. This site, which is decidedly Christian Conservative, has endorsed Mia Love, who I believe is a Mormon, for Congress due to her political positions. She’s prominent in the side-bar. I have a lot of respect for Glenn Beck, who is very up front with his Mormonism and his Libertarianism (which is not exactly Conservative), because he actually ferrets out the truth regarding the Democrat leadership’s strong ties to Socialists (such as billionaire convicted criminal and NAZI aiding George Soros) and the truth regarding the worldwide efforts to rebuild a Mohammedan caliphate.

When I was in high school, I house-sat for a Mormon family, and for very good reason: the father was a licensed gun dealer. I counted over 200 rifles and shotguns on one wall of their living room. And that was not the entirety of their gun collection. They had various pistols and fully automatic, high rounds-per-minute, large magazine weapons strewn about the house. It was important, even in the low-crime region of the low-crime town, for them to always have someone inside the house as a preventative measure. They were Mormons, and not Christian, although they thought themselves Christian. They were good people, nonetheless. (I expect they still are Mormons and good people, but I have not seen any of them in over 25 years.) The fact they were Mormon did not affect how I treated them. The daughter was my age and a very good friend of mine. Her Mormonism did not affect my decision-making in the least.

It is the same with Mitt Romney. The fact he is Mormon, while meaning he is decidedly not Christian, is not weighed in the balance when I look at him. In fact, modern-day mainstream Mormon beliefs would suggest a morality and value structure which is very much in line with Christian Conservative morality and value structures. It is, rather, Romney’s three positions for each issue and his record as Governor which disqualifies him.

I even highlight a Mormon Senator from Utah for special praise every year during my “Lights Of The Season” series.

As Governor of Massachusetts, Romney

  • Pushed Cap and Tax, feeding off the Glowball Warming alarmism.
  • Pushed Romneycare, the evil father of the evil Obamacare, both of which have the individual mandate, requiring the subjects (not citizens for a reason) purchase a product on pain of legal fines. To this day, Romney — in mock-worthy fashion — declares the individual mandate and Romneycare to be Conservative.
  • Pushed an anti-Catholic (who are we kidding? It’s anti-Christian!) mandate within Romneycare, the same that we have found out is in Obamacare, thanks to Sebelius.
  • Dramatically increased taxes on Massachusetts residents by raising various fees and creating new fees, such as fees on home-owners.
  • Increased anti-Second Amendment actions by Massachusetts, in part by dramatically increasing fees and regulations on gun buyers and owners.

As Republican candidate for President over the past four to six years, Romney has also advocated a VAT tax on top of all the other taxes we are already paying. He (and more importantly his wrecking crew) has viciously and falsely attacked all his Republican adversaries in ways only Alinskyites would love, by use of intentional lies, intentional hiding of the truth, and other methods. Romney is anti-Second, anti-Christian, anti-Life, anti-Liberty, anti-Constitution, anti-Conservative.

Romney cloaks his actions in the Tenth Amendment, which you can read in its entirety in my side-bar or find by following my link to the US Constitution, also in my side-bar. Romney is no Tenther. In any way. Unlike Rick Perry, who is a Bell Curve Tenther (not a real Tenther), Romney is only borrowing the mantle for his own political expediency.

And this is only scratching the surface of the great many ills the self-described “Progressive” (read Socialist) Mitt Romney has.

Mitt Romney seems to be experiencing a death-by-a-thousand cuts, many of them made possible by the copious video/documentary record of his 1994 challenge to Ted Kennedy. It’s Romney’s misfortune that outlets like C-SPAN are digitizing and making available to the public the footage from back then — because back then Romney was running to the left, not to the right. Today’s wince-inducing video clip (if you’re a Romney staffer, that is) is this NECN report from 2002 in which Romney brags, “I’m not a partisan Republican. I’m someone that is moderate, and my views are progressive”:

So, no, the Christian Conservative rejection of Romney has absolutely nothing to do with his Mormonism. In fact, much of what Romney pushed while Governor of Massachusetts was in direct violation of his Mormonism. The Christian Conservative rejection of Romney has everything to do with his anti-Constitutional anti-Christian Liberalism. The Christian Conservative position of the above-mentioned Church members who declared they’d stay home and not vote for Romney is partially supported here. I will not vote for a pro-abort, anti-second, anti-tenther “Progressive” such as Romney, ever. But I will vote down-ticket. What saved McCain in 2008, as far as I’m concerned is Palin. I voted for Palin and not for McCain. Romney will get no such saving grace. Period.

And it has nothing to do with his Mormon faith, which he has already rejected as Governor.
