191: Is God Pro-Life?

Psalm 133-139
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. - Psalm 139:13

Psalm 133 (David): David says how pleasant it is when Aaron pours oil all over himself. A little creepy David.

Psalm 134 (anonymous): Praise the servants of God. This is another psalm that's 3 sentences long.

Psalm 135 (anonymous): Any good block of Psalms isn't complete without a bible recap. This psalmist tells us about God killing the firstborn of Egypt.

Psalm 136 (anonymous): This is a special section. In that it says "His love endures forever" after every single line of the psalm. This is a total of 26 times. I'll assume the writer is repeating this to try to convince himself that God loves him. Maybe this all loving God will appear eventually to one of the psalmists.

Psalm 137 (anonymous): This writer tells God that they won't play the harp in a foreign land. The Babylonians wanted them to play songs of Zion for them, but they refused because they were not in Israel. Isn't God supposed to know this stuff already?

Psalm 138 (David): David says he is going to praise God forever and ever. He also wishes that all the kings of the earth would praise God. I'm getting really tired of David.

Psalm 139 (David): I've seen this psalm pointed to a lot as a reason to be pro-life. David was supposedly knit together in his mother's womb. Which, by the way, basic biology tells us isn't true. No knitting goes on inside wombs. The psalm goes on to say that God knows everything that's going to happen to you before you are born, and everything is part of God's plan. But wait a minute, doesn't that mean that every abortion ever performed was part of God's plan?

You can't say everything that happens is part of God's plan, then conveniently exclude everything bad that happens. If everything is God's plan, then every robbery, murder, rape, and yes, abortion is part of God's plan. If my logic is incorrect then someone please correct me.

*News*

God has told yet another person to commit a atrocious crime.

58 year old James Fall has admitted to marrying a 10 year old girl and molesting her for almost 10 years. Why? It's God's plan.

This sends me off on a bit of a tangent. If you're a Christian and someone tells you they did something crazy because God told them to, can you really say God didn't? After all, God works in mysterious ways. He lets little kids be killed by cancer, and perfectly good people get killed in car accidents. Who's to say he doesn't tell creepy old men to rape little kids? Is it really that much worse than killing little kids? We already know God has a history of telling the Israelites to kill women and children, what's the difference?

Well, now that I've pissed off every Christian in existence, I don't have much to say about this ass hole. If you want to hear the gruesome details click the link.

  1. Why wrote an article entitling a word you don't even know the significance or its value of existence?

  2. The James Fall thing is fucking sick... And I agree with you regarding your comments on it. It's something that I can't get my very-religious mother to understand. Her saying that God told her something or told someone else something is no more meaningful or valid than anyone else saying that, because there's no proof one way or the other.

    All the bad things are blamed on Satan (who we of course never mention was created by God) and are a result of human sin (which God allows). Mysterious ways, indeed. Guess some kids are just meant to be molested. How wonderful.

    Sick, sick, sick.

    P.S. - Your Anon commenter's ad hominem attack is unsurprising.

  3. Hello.

    I'm a Christian (although there are plenty of Christians who wouldn't agree with that self-assessment). I also think that crazy child-raping douche is a crazy child-raping douche. I also think that God doesn't literally tell people to do things. I also think that you might enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy yours:
