Proud of Obama?

Unless they accept the degrading premise of racism (that physical traits alone are a valid basis for identifying human communities), I cannot understand why people would assume that I should take pride in the election of Barak Obama simply because we both have dark skin. Because he takes the position that it’s right to slaughter innocent human beings by abortion, I believe he represents the antithesis of decent conscience. Like the southern slaveholders in the nineteenth century, he accepts the view that a human being’s most basic rights may be disregarded simply because another human being considers his physical characteristics or stage of human development inferior. Of course people like Obama aim at a more violently immoral result than the southern slaveholders. Whether from moral sentiment or selfish interest, the advocates of slavery supported a system that at the very least regarded the death of a slave as a regrettable, though sometimes necessary, waste of capital Those who support the abortion industry work to perpetuate a system that builds capital by wasting the lives of innocent human beings in the uttermost condition of helplessness.

People who wrote handbooks on slave husbandry actually gave advice to slaveholders about keeping the slaves healthy and strong for work. The abortion industry thrives on the development of more convenient and reliable methods of extermination. Its advocates fight hard to make sure potential clients are not exposed to any information that might interfere with the decision to devote new victims to the slaughter.

Slaveholders had to develop all manner of human relationships with their slaves, some of which involved genuine emotional attachment on both sides. The abortion industry depends on the denial of the emotional bond that is the paradigm of loving human relations, that between a mother and her child; and it implies the denial and irrelevance of the scarcely less fundamental tie that ought to bind a father to his offspring.

People pretend to scoff and take umbrage at anyone who dares to mention Obama and Hitler in the same breath. Yet the “good liberals” who staff the surgical killing fields that masquerade as medical facilities suppress the personhood of innocents in the womb with the same officious ruthlessness that characterized the “good Germans” who suppressed the humanity of the Jews, gypsies and other groups they regarded as inferior and consigned to the death camps. And the “choice” honored by pro-abortion slogans has about as much to do with freedom as the “work” honored by the slogan that reigned over Auschwitz and Buchenwald, “Arbeit Macht Frei.”

Far from any feeling of pride, I can feel only shame at the thought that someone now occupies the White House who in his rise to power consolidated the dedication of his most hard core devotees by boldly defending the murder of newborn children who survive intended slaughter, on the grounds that respecting their indisputable right to life would somehow interfere with their mothers’ “right” to the dead, dismembered little carcass they pay the abortionist to deliver.

Far from any feeling of pride, I feel only revulsion, and I cringe at the thought that anyone would identify me with a man who promotes evil more hard hearted and spiritually corrupting than that which claimed the liberty and blighted the lives of my forbears. I know that God forgives those who repent of the sin of abortion, even as he takes to his bosom the intended victims of their mistake. But as for those who defend the sin; who lure others into believing it has the sanction of right; who make the piled remains of tiny human beings the landfill on which to construct their edifice of profit and political power; as for these workers of iniquity I know that Christ rejects them (“…depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.” Luke 13:37) and for them our father God reserves only annihilation, (“…destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.” Proverbs 21:15)

Yet I also feel terrible grief at the sight of so many who rejoice in the triumph of evil that Obama represents because they have been deceived and manipulated into believing that he somehow represents a vindication of all the years of suffering, sorrow and outcast oppression experienced by Americans whose heritage includes the bitter reality of slavery, abuse and unjust discrimination. How can the generations beaten, hounded and murdered on account of the rejection of God ordained human equality be vindicated by the elevation to power of a man who champions that rejection, not just for one group or another, but for all human beings too young and inarticulate to defend themselves? How can the generations denied opportunity and a just recompense for their talent and labor be vindicated by the adulation given to a man who promotes as lawful, and would impose by law, the ultimate denial of opportunity and all justice to the posterity which represents the renewal of mankind’s hope in this and every generation?

As the children of those generations of bondage and tears lift up this golden calf of pride for the world’s applause they reject, like the children of Israel, the will and heart of the very God of Justice who made provision for their deliverance from floggings and unrequited toil, from contumely and searing humiliation. I grieve because I fear that like the Israelites of old, this generation prepares for itself a trial of renewed oppression, a place by the rivers of Babylon where they will learn again from hardship to seek the mercy of God by the only path that finds him- the path marked out by the true Messiah who best exemplified respect for his righteousness and obedience to his will. His is the heart from which we know the truth their new, false prophet of unity and hope cast down by the wayside in his rise to notoriety: real love and hope would rather lose all to preserve respect for God’s true gift of life than preside, by its destruction, over a nation departed from his knowledge and headed for calamity.

“For the LORD knows the way of the just: but the way of the unjust shall perish.” (Psalms 1:6)

    Dr. Keyes:

    Regrettably, many Afro-Americans who profess to be regenerate Christians voted for Mr. Obama in the previous Presidential election.
    In your observations and interactions with Afro-American Christians, are you aware of a general [moral] sense of repentance concerning their part in electing Mr. Obama; or, do you think most Afro-American Christians will vote for Mr. Obama again? I ask this question because I value your acumen greatly.

    God bless you, Dr. Keyes. I have voted for you in 2 primaries. I would love to see you succeed to our president. Over and over I hear, "you didn't vote for Obama because he is black". After I remind the accuser that Obama is also a WHITE MAN raised by rich white grandparents, I tell them that I voted for you. A man who holds the same values and principles that I do. I would love to see you back on the GOP ticket in 2 years. We need you!

    I always liked Luke 7:47.

    “Therefore I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven – for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.”

    Of course, we have all been forgiven much thus enabling us all to love much.

    I have no more certainty in this regard than the generations that have come before us. I believe it’s worth pondering these words from Isaiah 40:11

    “Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.”

    “even as he takes to his bosom the intended victims of their mistake” — Does this mean that you reject “limbus infantium” or does original sin NOT bar the unbaptized from the beatific vision?

    Thank you for all that you do for the pro-life cause!

  • Winston February 1, 2009, 3:35 pm

    very well said, sir!

  • chaoticsynapticactivity January 30, 2009, 3:23 pm

    And what the other commenters said!

    Thank you for your eloquence.
    I am praying , and I will work..

    We will meet in the Blessed Sacrament,
    Ellen from Buffalo,NY

    I have a dream, Dr. Keyes, that one day when race does not matter anymore that you will simply be the President.
    Sometimes I dream they will call you the Commander in Sweaters.
    But seriously THE PRESIDENT.

  • Keith L. Tolbert January 27, 2009, 10:44 pm

    Thank you again, Dr. Keyes, for fearlessly speaking the truth.

    I’m appalled by all of the people who keep asking if we are praying for Obama to succeed. Succeed at what? Continuing the murder of millions of bearers of the image of God? No, I do not pray for him to succeed. I hope he fails miserably on this and every godly account that he opposes.

    God bless you, sir, and do not grow weary in well doing!

  • Geronimo January 27, 2009, 8:45 pm

    Yes! We should say it. Often!
    Obama = Hitler
    Kinda like the ol’ two by four laid up ‘side a mules head to get its attention.

  • Jesus Disciple January 27, 2009, 8:19 pm

    Amen, brother!

    What I can’t get passed is how someone is being lifted up so high as a symbol of progression for Black Civil Rights, but he supports and even fights for the continuous murder of 4,000 unborn babies every day, 1,500 of which are BLACK.
