Russell Moore, Rosa Parks and Her Effort to Kill the Unborn

rosa-parks

Where was Rosa’s strength and courage, her faith in God, and her much touted Christianity – where was her defense of basic human rights while, in her latter years, she served on the Board of Advocates of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America?? Why did she refuse to stand up for the basic human rights of unborn children?

First, an introduction. Russell Moore is Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice President for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he also serves as Professor of Christian Theology and Ethics.

Now who you know whom I’m referring to.

Ok, that being said, the Latin word for  ‘lack of knowledge’ is ignoramus.

In this case, the shoe fits.

Observe, Russell Moore:

Christians especially ought to reflect on what Rosa Parks’ civil disobedience reminds us about our life together in society […]

Rosa Parks pointed to the sacrifice of neighbor-love.

In refusing to give up her seat, Mrs. Parks wasn’t struggling for her own position. She did so on behalf of millions of others, many yet unborn. There’s a difference, in a truly Christian ethic, in fighting for our own prerogatives and in working for justice for others. Jesus calls us to give up the cloak, to walk the extra mile, to turn the cheek (Matt. 5:38-42). […]

Rosa Parks was a great heroine who deserves our honor. But let’s not consign her to the museum. Her heroism still speaks, and points to some old, old truths that are needed in a new century.

Yes, Russell, Rosa worked on behalf of others alright……to kill them. To abort them before they were even born.

Russell, calls Rosa a “great heroine who deserves honor” and that “her heroism still speaks, and points to some old, old truths that are needed in a new century” that are needed in our day.

Well, great day man!!!!! Where did you get your education? How little do you care about human life? Bless your heart, you are just ignorant.

Think about this. This woman broke the law, and yet, after she died:

  1. Her funeral was 7 hours long, broadcast on television.
  2. She laid “in state” in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, making her the first woman and second Negro ever to receive this honor, and an estimated 50,000 people walked by and viewed her casket.

And why should she be honored?

She is honored for breaking a law. We are a nation of laws. Right or wrong, citizens must obey the laws of this land – unless those laws cause us to disobey God in His written Word. There are legal ways to make amends of unjust laws, and procedures to follow. Rosa Parks light-minded defiance of the laws of the land is a poor, even sinful example, and should not be held up as a courageous act, unless you want to talk about sinning courageously.

Yet, there is something even more disturbing about the Rosa Parks story that has somehow escaped those evangelicals who continue to perpetuate the heroin worship of Rosa Parks’ “strength and courage to persevere in a culture that denied basic human rights…” as Richard Land has said; namely, her support and work with Planned Parenthood. We don’t hear anything about that do we?

Where was Rosa’s strength and courage, her faith in God, and her much touted Christianity – where was her defense of basic human rights while, in her latter years, she served on the Board of Advocates of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America?? Why did she refuse to stand up for the basic human rights of unborn children?

It’s a valid question and something to think about.

Apparently, Russell Moore needs to learn a few things before telling Christians who and what they should honor.

Russell, you want us to honor this woman? Ignorance. It’s a dangerous thing.

Rosa Parks, by serving on the board of planned parenthood and working for their goals of a pro-choice organization, was casting her voice in the favor of women to be able to murder the yet unborn.

And people desire to honor her?
