Methodist Pastor Claims Jesus Came So We Could Have Free Abortive Birth Control

For many on the left, they believe that there is no God, so the morality of abortion does get fuzzy.

It is scientifically difficult to define when exactly a fertilized egg becomes human because there is no magical point at which it turns into a human.

But when you don’t actually believe that every person was hand-crafted in their mother’s womb by a loving Creator God who designed each human in His own image, it’s easy to begin to justify in-utero murder. Now, of course, most pro-abortion advocates will continue to try to explain away the humanity as a fetus because they still would rather not believe they’re terminating a human life, but I digress.

The point is that if you don’t believe you’ll be held accountable for your actions one day, you’re going to care a lot less about whether or not those actions are right or wrong.

But when you claim to believe in God, and the sacrifice of His one and only Son on the Cross so that we could live eternally with Him, and try to justify abortion…you’re just kidding yourself.

Methodist “pastor” Alicia Baker begins her logic, which was presented during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings earlier this month by the invitation of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to bang the drum of forcing employers to provide birth control and abortive services to employees, begins with a boatload of eisegesis:

“Jesus directs us to advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest. Jesus directs us to advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest. In John 10:10, Jesus says, ‘I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full,’” Baker said. “And this means supporting access to affordable birth control, because by permitting individuals to plan if, whether and when to become pregnant, birth control allows us to live our fullest lives.”

This was in reference to Kavanaugh’s support of companies like Hobby Lobby in their First Amendment right to refuse to provide abortive forms of birth control to their employees.

The Supreme Court, of course, has already sided with Hobby Lobby.

Baker of course, thinks this is somehow un-Christian, and that she has a duty as a religious person to demand the government force people to violate their religious beliefs…because that makes sense somehow:

“My faith dictates that I must speak out on behalf of the millions of women who stand to lose access to affordable birth control if Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed,” she said. “As a person of deep faith, I would never impose my religious beliefs on anyone – and no one else should either.”

So, let’s put aside for the moment that the Bible is full of verses imploring believers to share their faith with others and to warn people of their sin, and humor “Pastor” Baker.

Isn’t she, by referencing her faith and using her own twisted interpretations of Bible verses to finger-wag at Kavanaugh and Hobby Lobby and pro-life Christians everywhere, imposing her religious beliefs on people?

Yeah, she is, and go figure. This is what leftist “Christians” do. It’s apparently only wrong to “impose your religious beliefs” on other people if you’re not a progressive.
