A heartless faith

Posted in Pharyngula by Skepdude on March 25, 2009

There was an appalling and tragic plane crash in Montana: 14 people were killed, 7 of them children.

Tom Hagler, a mechanic at the Oroville airport, told The Sacramento Bee that he allowed several children ages 6 to 10 to use the airport bathroom before they boarded the doomed plane.

“There were a lot of kids in the group,” he said, “a lot of really cute kids.”

Nine of them were members of one family. This was a horrifying and genuinely horrible accident; I can’t begin to imagine the grief felt by the survivors, who lost children and grandchildren.

I can feel great anger, though. Here is something that will make you furious and outraged, too. Irving Feldkamp is the father of two and grandfather of five who were killed in that accident; he lost a shocking great swath of his family in that one sad afternoon. Irving Feldkamp is also the owner of Family Planning Associates — a chain of clinics that also does abortions.

You can guess what segment of the Christian community I’m about to highlight.

Choke back your gag reflex and read this hideous, evil article on Christian Newswire. Some moral cretin named Gingi Edmonds wrote a wretched story on this tragedy that makes it sound like divine retribution on Mr Feldkamp.

It begins by telling us that the plane crashed in a cemetery — a Catholic cemetery that has a “memorial to the unborn”, dedicated to aborted fetuses. We are apparently supposed to feel some sense of irony at this.

    The plane crash was a horrible tragedy. Very, very few would be happy to hear about who it happened to, even though many believe abortion is hideously evil.

    The irony IS undeniable in this tragic event. Why don’t you have the ability to lower your liberal blindfold and SEE it! How can ANYONE NOT see the irony in this??? And why are you more offended by the author than by a man getting rich from abortion? I sympathize the loss of his family, and I HOPE AND PRAY that this tragedy causes him to get out of the abortion industry…

      Are you high or something? You find irony in death? You most certainly do not “sympathize the loss of his family” for if you did you would never try to use the loss of live so cheaply, in order to advance your misguided agenda. And don’t even try using the word “tragic” as if you mean it. People like you first and foremost feel satisfaction that something like this happened. If you really thought this was tragic you would not even be talking right now, let alone saying what you are saying. What beacons of morality you folks are!

    All you leftwingers, liberals, atheists, self-absorbed “elitists” and all abortion supporters and providers are wastes of flesh.

    “I say, screw the polite words and careful rhetoric. It’s time for us to break out the steel-toed boots and brass knuckles, and get out there and hammer on the lunatics and idiots.

      Well, dear Me, that makes two of us.

        Ah the good old christian morality, how you enlighten us with your kindness and show us our wrong ways by basking in delight in the idea of people dying. You are an example to follow my friend…by the Taliban! Ah the hypocrisy! I thought Jesus was love!

    No one gets out alive.

    The wise and the foolish both come to their end.
    Their graves are their homes forever.

      Amen to that!
