I find it ironic that the same person who labels abortion as murder or refuses to go to war himself (whether due to religious convictions or morals), believes it is justifiable to advocate and participate in the murder of millions of babies (and women and children-or any human life for that matter) under the premise of “protecting” a country or “freedom”. And I find it even more ironic that anyone who supports invading another country and dropping bombs on weddings and funerals… and literally just randomly…justifies these actions by stating that the people (babies included) that they are brutally killing are “terrorists“; but fail to see how the term “terrorist” or “murderer” could apply to them, when they are terrorizing the terrorists. When will we realize that all murder is wrong and that peace is the only way that we can live morally and with any manner of justice….and love? If anyone claims to be “religious” in any manner at all, then they would never be able to promote violence and murder. This is why “religion” is not the same as “religious” or, going a step further, having faith, love and truth. Because if you do believe in a higher being (God) or whatever “religious” or “spiritual” faith you follow, then you will have a conscience that will not allow you to commit sins that literally defy everything that is just and moral. If you believe in the Judeo-Christian religion (or any for that matter) you would have to believe that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword. And that we do not answer to a man’s or a government’s laws, but to a higher being who teaches tolerance, peacefulness and love. Whatever religious or spiritual “higher” source you believe in, you would have to concede to the fact that you are not religious and/or you have no morals. Only a man who believes in a higher being and follows his heart with faith, love and peace, can claim that he is moral and/or religious/spiritual and, if that be the case, then he would not be consciously able to advocate or participate in any type of violence or murder and there would be no hate, no war and no murder; only love, tolerance and peace. And without love and peace we can never be truly free. How can you ever experience freedom if your conscience continues to be enslaved by the consuming hatred and -if you possess a conscience- guilt of the practice or advocacy of horrific crimes, especially one of the most heinous of crimes, murdering an innocent baby or, for that, matter, taking (any) persons life?

Why do people cast stones when they live in such fragile glass castles built on sand?
Judgment and prejudice are like rancid cancers, they devour our souls from inside out
Is the wisdom taught by the greatest man who ever walked so hard to understand?
…A man who died in the name of what love, tolerance and grace are all about?
When HE walked the earth men cursed HIS love and spat right in HIS face
HIS dignity never faltered, for HE turned his cheek and offered up the other
When those versed in the law tested him, HE taught the only saving grace
To judge a person for whom they choose to love as a mate for life…
This is no mortal man or woman’s right… to magistrate or- just as wicked- to condemn
Be the life choice either woman to woman, man to man or man to wife
For there is only ONE who has the power to judge and that only one is HIM
Could it be you presume to believe someone is living a life you don’t agree is “right”?
Evil condemnation and self-righteousness hatred rise up inside your “holy” chest…
Contemplate what HE did state you must obey if you want HIS mercy to ignite…
LOVE is HIS greatest lesson and ONLY decree; HIS love flows free-ly and to all is manifest
HE never stated that any ONE “so-called sin” was more offensive than any other of the “sins”
that you sin each and every day; Except but ONE and that is blasphemy against the Holy Ghost
So if you feel the desire to judge another for their lifestyle or whatever else to you just may offend
Be very careful, for judging seems to me [if not to BE] extremely close to blasphemy; the ONE HE HATES the MOST.
