Chicago planning to close up to 50 public schools. Teacher’s union is outraged.

by Doug Lawrence

Considering the fact that Chicago’s 100% Democrat, pro abortion government has been fully in charge for over forty years, and the Chicago Teacher’s Union (CTU) is also 100% pro abortion, you have to wonder why either of them is surprised this is happening.

Granted, politicians … especially those hailing from Chicago … are not known for their intelligence, but the teachers have absolutely no excuse. You can’t go around wantonly killing fifteen to twenty five percent of babes  in the womb, while simultaneously expecting  public school enrollment to somehow increase. That’s simply irrational.

The teachers don’t like it one bit when their schools and their jobs get aborted, yet their blood-curdling screams fall on deaf ears, since Chicago politicians are concerned only with the money. But it’s refreshing to see that actions still have consequences … even in Chicago … home of Barack Obama … the abortion president.

For they shall sow wind, and reap a whirlwind, there is no standing stalk in it, the bud shall yield no meal; and if it should yield, strangers shall eat it. (Hosea 8:7)

Planned Parenthood “talking points” prove abortion (and those who support it) are not rational

The most shocking bullet point on this page is when Planned Parenthood suggests that in order to win a person over to the pro-choice side your job is to make the other person feel relief that they didn’t have to have an abortion. These talking points blatantly prove that they understand abortion is not liked; a fact SFLA recently documented in our nationwide poll, showing that the plurality of 18-24 year olds view abortion as a “bad thing.”

In another section entitled, “Tips for Fielding Tough Questions”, Planned Parenthood of NYC opens by stating, “The secret to fielding tough questions is to stick to your worldview! After all, questions are simply opportunities for you to get your message out.” Or more straight forwardly interpreted: “Don’t really answer questions, just give them enough so that you can tell them how wonderful Planned Parenthood is.”

Their suggested response to the question, “Why are you a baby killer?” is “I’m proud to work for Planned Parenthood. We’re a nationwide healthcare provider…”

Those who do evil insist upon the acceptance and even the promotion of evil, on an ever-widening scale.

There is a substantive moral difference between permitting a particular elective practice and forcing everybody to participate in the funding of that practice. One has to be pretty far gone morally to fail to see this distinction. To fail to see it, one must argue something very much like the following:

  1. Practice X is a morally good personal decision.
  2. Therefore, those who embrace Practice X promote the common good.
  3. Therefore, everyone should contribute to the costs of Practice X.
  4. Therefore, anyone who believes Practice X to be immoral should be coerced into paying a share of the costs.

This line of thought includes no fewer than four logical leaps. It begins with the assumption that there can be no legitimate disagreement concerning the value of Practice X. It leaps from that assumption to a further assumption about the common good, and from this second assumption to a third, that the cost of whatever contributes to the common good should be shared by all, and finally from this third assumption to a fourth—that coercion is warranted for those who disagree.

Editor’s note: Liberalism in itself is evil … so it’s no wonder that liberals typically suffer from a pronounced darkening of the intellect … and are often guilty of blindly following a profoundly deviant moral compass … currently exemplified by Barack Obama and his merry band of left-wing, Marxist/Leninist anarchists.

Liberalism is a sin

Justice Scalia: “Many militant atheists take this line. Prove it to me; I am not interested in your proof.”

Although the sophisticated may deride them as simple-minded, committed Christians should have the courage to embrace their faith he said. “It isn’t irrational to accept the testimony of eyewitnesses to miracles”  Scalia said.

“What is irrational,” he said, “is to reject a priori, with no investigation, the possibility of miracles in general and of Jesus Christ’s resurrection in particular — which is, of course, precisely what the worldly wise do.”

Scalia cited the 10-year-old case of a priest in the Washington archdiocese who was said to have the stigmata. Statues of Mary and the saints appeared to weep in his presence. Reporters for The Washington Post did a story and were unable to find an explanation for the strange phenomena.

“Why wasn’t that church absolutely packed with nonbelievers,” Scalia asked, “seeking to determine if there might be something to this?”

The answer was obvious, he said with disdain: “The wise do not investigate such silliness.”
