Follow my logic here.
I drove by our local abortion clinic this morning, and the usual bevy of protestors with their graphic signs and posters of aborted fetuses were there, trying hard to shock the sensibilities of the drivers rushing to get to work. They’ve been doing this for years, and I’ve written about it before.
There was a new sign out front that said something to the effect that
Obama Supports the Killing of Babies
which I presume was a response to the perceived loss at the polls by the various so-called pro-life candidates last week. Maybe an attempt to double down on the stupidity of the campaign, or something? I don’t know. This was the first time I saw a sign mentioning our President by name out front of this clinic. It really doesn’t matter, but infusing a political element into the protest is what got me to think that God must approve of abortion, and that these people are protesting in vain.
In the primaries of this election cycle, just about every candidate running for the Republican nomination pointed out that they were all called by God to run. In effect they claimed, without any proof (as one comes to expect with religious assertions), that God had anointed their campaign as the one he approved of, notwithstanding the fact that God couldn’t have logically anointed them all simultaneously. And, as we all expected, one by one they dropped out of the race, when the electorate (you know – the ones who really do count in elections) simply didn’t agree with them.
So God must have withdrawn his approval of their campaigns, one by one, and instead put his divine weight behind Romney, right, since he was the ultimate victor? Well, to his credit, the Mittsger never came out and claimed that God had called him to the job, but we can only assume that God’s a Republican since he called all those other Republicans, and no Democrats. He was clearly on the anti-Obama side, since he never gave even a hint that he supported Obama at all. The Republican platform has a very specific anti-choice position, along with an anti-gay position, and God, as we all know (according to Michelle Bachmann , and Herman Cain, and Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum) agrees with that platform. Most religious officials, especially the Christian ones, would tend to agree with this.
So it’s very clear that God supports Republicans, and by extension, the Republican platform. At least according to Republicans. And it’s a matter of record that Obama is, and has always been, pro-choice on the issue of abortion.
Yet, despite the clear positions on both sides, God favored Obama, by allowing him to be elected in the general election, even though he anointed so many anti-choice candidates in the primaries leading up to that election.
God favored Obama because he favored his positions and, more generally, the Democratic platform. Since pro-choice is the official Democratic position on abortion, and that of Obama, it only stands to reason that God agrees with Obama and therefore is pro-choice.
