The forces of hate Print

Garry Wills assures us that Jesus, if he were among us today, would be partial to “gays.” He cites not a single verse or word in the gospels, or any other part of Scripture, to support this peculiar view. At times, he reminds me of the Tolstoy character who chooses his opinions as he selects his clothes — according to mere fashion. Wills also holds that abortion is a woman’s right, never mind that the one of the earliest surviving Christian documents, the Didache, which may well express the thinking of the Apostles, flatly forbids abortion (as does the Hippocratic oath).

The current furor over abortion has even become an issue in this year’s Super Bowl. Having one’s own unborn child destroyed is now among the sacred rights of women. Deny it if you dare!
Focus on the Family ignited a bitter dispute when they produced a mildly pro-life ad about a young football star named Tim Tebow and his mother (who had been advised to abort him) in the telecast of the event. Feminists, enraged, accused Tebow and his mother of “un-American hate,” among other offenses.

Tebow also quoted the Bible. The forces of hate, it seems, will stop at nothing.
