Would Russell Moore Argue This Way about Cocaine Possession?

As with Doug Wilson, so with Russell Moore

Figures.

Old Life

I understand why pro-life groups want to disassociate themselves from Donald Trump’s convoluted thoughts about women who seek abortions needing to be penalized. But doesn’t Russell Moore go too far when he says these women are victims of a culture and industry that is pro-choice?

One of the worst misconceptions about pro-life Americans is that we are pro-baby and anti-women. Unfortunately, the pro-life movement hasn’t always done a good job of defeating this notion. It’s true that some rhetoric on our side has lacked compassion and holistic concern for the well-being of mothers, especially unwed moms. But despite our imperfections, the pro-life movement has indeed been remarkably consistent about our desire not only to tear down abortion culture but to build a culture of life and human flourishing in its stead. This is the conviction that has built thousands of crisis pregnancy centers, funded hundreds of adoptions., and come alongside…

    My last year in high school, I had a class that included freshmen. The teacher of the class hated freshmen and with good reason. They seemed to delight in their stupidity and never seemed to realize how dumb they looked and acted. As for the teacher, he tried hard to show them the error of their ways to no avail. He eventually gave up. From then on, whenever anything stupid was hollered out in class, he would just breathe a huge sigh, look at the ground and just shake his head very visibly.

    After watching “pro-lifers” blow up at Trump’s abortion comments, I now know exactly how that teacher used to feel. There is really nothing I can do except sigh and shake my head at the shrieks of the pro-lifers.

    I dunno who it was, it might have been Freenortherner who said that we should just stop calling ourselves pro-life because we aren’t; we need to embrace the anti-abortion label, because that is exactly what we are.

      I agree; it would also separate those of us with brains out from those who stay within the official movement, within which they accomplish very little, in terms of changing the laws.

    You know men like this also promote Dominion theology. A full-take over of the country resulting in a “Christian” Millennium facilitating the return of Jesus which sounds suspiciously like an Immatetizing of the eschaton.

      I don’t think Russell Moore is a Dominionist, though.

      Southern Baptists aren’t usually Dominionists, though; Dominionists tend to either be a subset of Reformed, or some Charismatic / Pentecostal types.

        Dominionists needs to be watched closely. Those guys could be dangerous.

        Maybe, but their ideology doesn’t appeal to that many.

    Heretics as well as apologists for wicked women.

      I am cautious about using the word ‘heretic’ though it may well apply to Dominionists (again, not sure Moore is one though), but indeed, certainly an apologist for wicked women, having their unborn offspring snuffed out.

        Okay. Point taken.

    I admit not tracking closely the pro-life movement, so all this was quite eye-opening to me.

    But “Cambria Will Not Yield” has criticized the pro-life movement a number of times–he participated when he was younger–and now I understand what he meant.

    “I understand why pro-life groups want to disassociate themselves from Donald Trump’s convoluted thoughts about women”

    Trump’s original argument made total sense. Killing a baby is murder or is it not murder? No wonder the pro-life folks are pseudo supporters. They really do not believe killing an unborn baby is murder!

      The professional activist types certainly don’t act that way, do they…
