Here at LifeNews, we have profiled numerous occasions on which Christian pastors come and bless abortion clinics. The events that they hold outside abortion clinics are some of the most hypocritical and sacrilegious events one could possibly imagine.
The Bible is very clear when it comes to how Christians are to view life and the sanctity of human life. Human beings are created in God’s image and the Lord sent his son Jesus Christ to die for each and every human being — to restore those who believe in Him and His resurrection with eternal life. To take that eternal life that God offers and to celebrate the death of children in abortions runs completely counter to the entire Biblical message.
That doesn’t stop some supposedly Christian pastors from blessing abortion clinics anyway.
In Washington DC, Christian pastors were joined with a Jewish rabbi to bless a late-term abortion clinic run by Leroy Carhart. These pastors have the gall to bless the clinic as a “holy space” and they said that the staff members do everything “for God’s glory.”
Here is more on this decidedly anti-Christian event:
When clergy gather at an abortion clinic, it’s usually in protest, outside the building.
Rarely are they huddled inside the clinic, not to condemn but to bless the procedures that happen there.
Yet that was the Rev. Carlton Veazey’s task as he led a prayer in Bethesda on Monday. “God of grace and God of glory, in whom we move and live,” he said, as he opened a prayer for the well-being of the doctor and nurses who facilitate abortions at a clinic here and for their patients. “Keep them safe and keep them strong. And may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory.”
Veazey was one of four Christian pastors and one rabbi who gathered to bless this Bethesda abortion clinic in an unusual interfaith ceremony.
Yet everyday conversation about abortion tends to cast it as a question of faith on one side — the antiabortion side — versus secular liberalism on the other. The clergy at this ceremony said that’s not the case. Many women who seek abortions are people of faith who pray about their decision, the clergy said.
Veazey, a Baptist pastor, spoke about the legal and moral bases for his pro-abortion-rights stance on Monday. “The Supreme Court affirmed a woman’s right to choose an abortion. But before the Supreme Court did it, God had already done it, because it affirms a woman’s moral agency,” he preached. Several of the clinic’s staff members hummed, “Amen.”
As a symbol of sanctification, the clergy sprinkled water in each room of the clinic and in the parking lot, which the Rev. Cari Jackson described as “a space of tremendous decision-making,” where women often face protesters as they walk into the medical building that houses the clinic.
“We give honor to all of these women who choose to come to this space,” said Jackson, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ who has served in United Methodist and Presbyterian Church USA congregations. “We sanctify this space, and we honor this as holy.”
These so-called pastors need to be worried, as the Bible contains specific admonitions for those who call sin a good thing. As Isaiah 5:20 says: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness.”
