Resign Now

Every pastor and elder who voted for President Joe Biden must resign. And they must do so now. Because of Biden’s glaring and obvious incapacity? No. Because of Biden’s ridiculous progressive political views? No. Because of his implausible green agenda? No. Well, the more I think about it, yes. But that’s for another blog.

Every pastor and elder who voted for President Joe Biden must resign now because of Biden’s inexcusable, unpardonable, and reprehensible support for abortion. He didn’t hide his views when he was a candidate. He hasn’t changed his views in office. He was enthusiastically endorsed by Planned Parenthood. His full and devoted support for abortion was stamped on his forehead. His pen was already in his left hand when his right hand was shamefully upon the Bible his inauguration day. He couldn’t wait to sign his executive orders to kill more babies.

Don’t believe me? His first week in office he repealed the Mexico City Policy, which had barred foreign aid going to organizations involved with abortion. As a result, millions of dollars are sent abroad so babies in other nations can be killed with American tax payer money. Two months later he created the White House Gender Policy Council. One of that council’s goals (among other godless policies) is to promote abortion here and abroad. In October of last year, Biden rescinded the former administration’s block on funding abortionists through the Title X family planning program (abortion is considered family planning, you know).

Let’s keep going. In January of this year, Biden’s administration announced the forming of the Reproductive Healthcare Task Force. Their job is to identify and eliminate pro-life policies that remain in existing federal programs, advance new pro-abortion policies, and (get this) initiate efforts to normalize abortion by minimizing its stigma (that’s tough to do when sharp objects are piercing, slicing, and crushing life in the womb). That same month his department of Health and Human Services announced nearly $7 million in grants would be going to abortion mills in states who had enacted pro-life legislation.

Now the present. This month he asked for $2.6 billion to fund “gender equality” programs, which among other things, would fund more abortions. And he announced that he supports federal legislation to codify abortion. He wants federal protection for abortion if Roe v. Wade is limited or scrubbed later this year by SCOTUS.

But none of those egregious acts prompted this blog. It is what he said this past week in recognition of “International Women’s Day.” He released a statement. In it he touted his “whole-of-government effort to protect reproductive rights”—a euphemism for abortion. He then went on to say, “Every person deserves the chance to live up to their full God-given potential, without regard for gender or other factors. Yet too often, in too many places, women and girls face obstacles that limit their possibilities and undermine their participation in economic, political, and social life.”

What is the President of the United States saying? Women can’t reach their “full God-given potential” without abortion. I would remind the supposed devout Catholic that a dead baby in the womb has no potential.

Back to the opening pronouncement. Every pastor and elder who voted for this man must resign. If not, whatever mechanism available within that church body should be used to force them out. Those who voted for this man did so with eyes wide open. They knew who he was. They knew what he would do regarding the unborn. And he has done it and continues to do it.

Pastors and elders who helped put a man in office who willfully and continually seeks ways to kill babies have demonstratively shown they are incapable of godly judgment and that they do not have the ability to shepherd souls.

Too simplistic? Too one issue? Too bad. It is simple. And it is the issue. They all should have resigned yesterday.
