The Molech Cult’s Abortion Imperative
The newsletter of the United Methodist General Board of Church and Society has an article about the new High Priestess of the mainline Molech cult. She is the Rev. Alethea Smith-Withers, pastor of The Pavilion of God–A Baptist Community in Washington, DC), the new chair of the Board of Directors of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and she’s a doozy:
Smith-Withers says she is committed to “being strident” regarding affordable health care, reproductive health care, affordable prenatal care, access to affordable birth control, sexuality education, dignity and safeguards for girls and women, all-options counseling, and access to safe and legal abortions for all Americans.
That’s nothing new for RCRC, of course. They’ve been stridently in favor of killing babies for over forty years now.
Smith-Withers’ knowledge and experience in the areas of organizational development, cultural competency and liberation theology have enabled her to establish innovative programs that promote diversity dialogues among varied constituents. Within her urban and family ministry work, she has become well known as a “barrier-breaker” and “bridge-builder.”
In other words, she’s an ineffectual liberal. Thank God for that.
Smith-Withers is a long-time advocate for reproductive justice. “I am reminded that Bishop Desmond Tutu said, ‘If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor,’” she states. “Ignorance, convention, bias, fear and silence are the oppressors of reproductive justice.”
If this job doesn’t work out, I understand there’s an opening for a random word generator at Workers World. She sounds perfect.
“The reproductive justice framework enables us to understand that reproductive choice is inextricably tied to the work of justice and cannot be obtained without the power and promise of justice,” Smith-Withers says. “With the reproductive justice framework, RCRC is broadening its invitation and strengthening its message.”
“Justice.” She keeps using that word, but it doesn’t mean what she thinks it means. For her, “justice” means that the strong have the right to do whatever they wish when the weak and defenseless are in no position to complain, including killing them. That’s “justice” in the world of the RCRC.
Smith-Withers calls justice a “Divine imperative” for action and for acknowledging the voices of the voiceless and the faces of the invisible. “The call for reproductive justice enables us to fight against the forces that would deny reproductive health care, choices, rights and dignity to any person,” she says. “When we unapologetically lift the mantle for reproductive justice, we challenge the immoral socio-economic and political barriers that exist for millions of Americans. Moreover, we reaffirm religious freedom in America.”
The grotesque irony of this is truly astounding. She wants to stand up for “justice,” for “acknowledging the voices of the voiceless and the faces of the invisible.” Is there anyone more voiceless than the child not yet born, anyone more invisible that the child still in the womb? These voiceless and invisible human beings, however, are of no more importance to Smith-Withers than the garbage at the back of Leroy Carhart’s horror show. And over this attitude of joy in the destruction of innocent human life, she blasphemously spreads the mantle of “divine justice.”
Oh, there will be divine justice, all right. Only it isn’t going to look anything like what she imagines it to be.
