In this election season, it has become very apparent that the Democrat Party is an instrument of wickedness and has no redeeming value. This is a bold statement, one that logically leads to the requirement that Matthew 18 ultimately be acted on just as it needs to be for those who are going woke. But the mantra here is “Theologically Sound. Culturally Relevant.” And it would be a dereliction to not address how evil one major party is.
There are many ways to come to this conclusion, but the first way that must be addressed is abortion. Woe to those who call good evil and evil good. Calling one of the most heinous sins not only good but justice is wholly incompatible with a Christian orthopraxy. For this we go to the Democratic Party Platform 2020. Under the section titled “Securing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice” it reads:
Democrats are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice. We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should be able to access high-quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion. We will repeal the Title X domestic gag rule and restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides vital preventive and reproductive health care for millions of people, especiallyPage 32
low-income people, and people of color, and LGBTQ+ people, including in underserved areas.
The Democrats want safe and legal abortions. As Christians we can want abortion to neither be safe nor legal. The Biblical position on abortion is for it to not only be criminal, but a capital offense for both the woman and the hitman. But the Democrats refer to this as justice. And not only do they want to permit it, they want to fund it.
It is also worth noting the Marxist framework in this plank. The plank appeals to intersectionality of different groups that Critical Theory (Cultural Marxism) want to combine into a proletariat class. The platform itself is saturated with the language of Cultural Marxism.
Democrats oppose and will fight to overturn federal and state laws that create barriers to reproductive health and rights. We will repeal the Hyde Amendment, and protect and codify the right to reproductive freedom. We condemn acts of violence, harassment, and intimidation of reproductive health providers, patients, and staff. We will address the discrimination and barriers that inhibit meaningful access to reproductive health care services, including those based on gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, income, disability, geography, and other factors. Democrats oppose restrictions on medication abortion care that are inconsistent with the most recent medical and scientific evidence and that do not protect public health.Page 32
Once more the Democrats elaborate, on rather than a government neutral pro-abortion position, they want a government affirming pro-abortion position. Outdated symbolic laws like the Hyde Amendment must be repealed because they are iconoclastic. They also declare that they will defend abortion from the states.
We recognize that quality, affordable comprehensive health care; medically accurate, LGBTQ+ inclusive, age-appropriate sex education; and the full range of family planning services are all essential to ensuring that people can decide if, when, and how to start a family. We are proud to be the party of the Affordable Care Act, which prohibits discrimination in health care on the basis of sex and requires insurers to cover prescription contraceptives at no cost. These effortsPage 32
have significantly reduced teen and unintended pregnancies by making it easier to decide whether, when, and how to have a child
The Democrats are trying to placate the arguement that their policies reduce abortion which is untrue. The correlation in the United States is not red states and blue states but rather the number of abortion providers. Consider this map of the abortion rate by state.
Now consider this map of the number of abortion facilities from 2014.
The number of facilities plays a direct impact on the number of abortions in the same way that the number of McDonald’s impact the number of Bic Macs sold. The Democrat Party touts a decrease in the number of abortion citing the just as they did in the platform but since 2015, the number of clinics has decreased and the number of Roe challenging bills has increased.
Do not let the Democrats who call abortion justice lie to you. The party is irredeemably evil and abortion is just the bloody tip of the spear.
