    Have you ever noticed how the wicked will defend the wicked while the righteous man (or woman) will defend the truth and expose the wickedness of the wicked?

    That revelation did not escape the attention of a certain writer recently who noted that the same law enforcement and political figures who were defending a certain public figure accused by his victims of pedophilia in Europe, were later discovered to have been connected to and / or involved in the very same criminal behavior!

    People are not only known by the company they keep but by who and what they are known for defending, making excuses for and justifying when there is no justification.

    One of my favorite Psalms addresses this very subject:

    [​IMG]

    Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

    But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

    And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

    The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

    Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

    For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

    Psalm 1: 1-6

    So the next time someone attempts to convince you of their innocence and virtuous ways whilst defending abortion (child sacrifice / Baal worship), rapists, pedophiles, and the diabolical cults / political groups that sanction such wicked behavior give them Psalm 1 and put them on your prayer list.

    They need all the prayer they can get.

    Actually Ghandi was exposed as a liar when he made that claim. You see, Ghandi didn't like Jesus Christ OR His Followers........

    Jesus said,
    If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    In the end, Gandi was murdered by one of his own. A Hindu.

    Defending the truth isn't difficult once you decide to walk in it. Otherwise? You end up being exposed, Fenton.

    In one simple quote, Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B. sums up the hypocrisy of many in the 'pro-life' movement:

    "I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."

    This quote applies well to many Republican lawmakers who continue to introduce/pass restrictive misogynist laws against woman's reproductive rights. At the same time, the GOP works to shut down women's health clinics, with a special vengeance towards Planned Parenthood (#StandWithPP). You don't hear of these Right Wing anti-choice

    I'm an Op-ed Contributor and the Op-ed is my opinion (based on facts) of how reliable Scripture is when you consider the actions of the wicked and their end. Did I mention the public figure who was accused of pedophilia died right after being identified by his victim? Yes, he dropped dead before he could even be brought to trial. Suddenly, they say. His death was "sudden."

    More evidence of the truth. Like Chaff to the Wind ...

    Thank you for your question!

    There is no justifiable excuse for the murder of the unborn. Again we see an example of the wicked defending the wicked. People are known not only by the company they keep but by who and what they defend (as stated in the Op-ed). Abortion is murder. Those who defend murder are wicked. No matter who they are. God gives no exemptions on the matter. If you defend the murder of the unborn? You're wicked.

    We find people in America defending the Trump when he lies a lie or changes the lie to something else.

    We see them defending and making excuses for Trump's three marriages, for calling his child a 'retard' before workers, when there is absolutely no justification for such defense except for an evil cause.

    The Great Advice from the Savior in living correctly remains simple: love thy neighbor as thyself, treat your neighbor as you wish to be treated. Trump simply lashes out (as does the OP) against those who disagree with him. Disagreeing with Trump is not equated with the hyperbole of Baal worship, or human sacrifice, or other horrible things.

    So when Trump (or Clinton, for that matter) and their defenders of matters and events that are clearly not righteous, simply put them on your prayer list.

    As the OP does rightly suggest, "They need all the prayer they can get."
