ed note–once again, jes’ a lil’ reminder that the severe and existential threats posed to Gentile civilization as a result of the influence described by Jewish writer/commentator Douglas Rushkoff as ‘the corrosive force’ is not limited to merely American foreign policy in the Middle East.
A few notable quotables contained herein–
‘…he opened a prayer for the well-being of the doctor and nurses who facilitate abortions at a clinic here and for their patients, saying Keep them safe and keep them strong, and may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory.‘
Yes, you read that correctly ladies and Gentile-men–the butchers working at the abortuary and the bloody, grisly trade they ply in murdering living children in utero is being done for ‘the glory’ of God, the creator.
‘Jewish rabbinic authorities, starting with the Middle Ages, say that a fetus is not a person,’ said Rabbi Charles Feinberg. ‘Judaism has always said abortion is never murder. It may not be permitted, depending on the circumstances — how far along the pregnancy is, how seriously ill the mother-to-be is — but it is never murder. It only becomes that once the baby is born.’
And people WONDER why the physical manifestation of Judaism in the world–the Jewish state–suffers no spiritual indigestion whatsoever over the regular acts of indescribable violence perpetrated against defenseless men, women and children in Gaza, the West Bank, Iraq, Libya, Syria, or wherever?
Jesus Christ said it best in describing these creatures–
‘You are of your father, the devil, who was a murderer from the beginning and the father of lies’.
‘Veazey, a Baptist pastor, spoke about the legal and moral bases for his pro-abortion-rights stance on Monday. “The Supreme Court affirmed a woman’s right to choose an abortion. But before the Supreme Court did it, God had already done it, because it affirms a woman’s moral agency,” he preached. Several of the clinic’s staff members hummed, “Amen.”
Perhaps someone should remind the most reverend Veazey–a black man–that the same Supreme Court whose decisions he is hailing as ‘sacred’ is the same Supreme Court that ruled in the infamous Dred Scott case that African slaves in America only counted as 3/5 of a human being.
‘Rabbi Feinberg also characterized the right to an abortion as a question of religious freedom. If a woman believes abortion is ethical, the government shouldn’t keep her from the procedure, he said. “It is not the business of the government.’
Then when the ‘brownshirts’ of post-Weimar who began rising up and engaging in violence against Jews in Germany without government sanction should have been free to do so as well because they believed that doing so was ‘ethical’. Likewise today, for those folks who lash out violently at what they (accurately) perceive to be the dangerous results of the ‘corrosive force’ of Judaism in Gentile society–they should be free to do so in accordance with their consciences as well.
‘Carhart (Abortionist who performs late-term infanticide procedures) said he believes in God ‘very strongly’ and feels he is living out his faith by helping women through what is often the worst time of their lives.’
In the unlikely event there are those unaware of what these ‘late-term’ procedures are, they are described thus–
The abortionist reaches into the mother’s womb, grasps the feet of the fully-formed child–viable and very much alive–turns it around and pulls its body most of the way out with only the head remaining inside. He then reaches in with a pair of scissors, stabs the point of the scissors into the back of the child’s skull, OPENS THE SCIRRORS in order to create a hole large enough for a catheter suction tube to be inserted, at which point the child’s brains are SUCKED OUT.
The rest of the child’s body–90% already delivered, is then pulled out.
His/her organs are then harvested and sold to medical research firms, sometimes netting as much as $50,000 per child.
Now, just to make sure we’ve covered all the bases here in this discussion and particularly of the effects that this ‘corrosive force’ has had over the moral health of America, keep in mind that even though ‘right-wing’ Evangelical Christians do make it a point to oppose what has been the moral/social travesty in America known as infanticide that has OVERWHELMINGLY been the result of Jewish influence, activism, and political lobbying, at the same time, these same ‘right-wing’ Christians have just as much innocent blood on their hands in their EFFUSIVE support for the ‘late term abortion’ that occurs when Israel or her preferred attack dog–America–murders innocent children in Palestine or wherever.
Indeed, when it comes to this ‘corrosive force’ and the effect it has over the moral health of all nations irrespective of whether it is the right wing or left wing of a given society, it is a case of the Sin-a-gogue celebrating with every coin coss, saying ‘heads we win, tails you lose’.

When clergy gather at an abortion clinic, it’s usually in protest, outside the building.
Rarely are they huddled inside the clinic, not to condemn but to bless the procedures that happen there.
Yet that was the Rev. Carlton Veazey’s task as he led a prayer in Bethesda on Monday. “God of grace and God of glory, in whom we move and live,” he said, as he opened a prayer for the well-being of the doctor and nurses who facilitate abortions at a clinic here and for their patients. “Keep them safe and keep them strong. And may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory.”
Veazey was one of four Christian pastors and one rabbi who gathered to bless this Bethesda abortion clinic in an unusual interfaith ceremony. A Hindu priest who was supposed to attend from a local temple, who has blessed an abortion clinic before, didn’t make it.
Opinions on the morality of abortion differ drastically by faith. Catholicism and some Protestant denominations teach that life begins from the moment of conception and abortion at any stage is akin to murder. Other Protestants and teachings from several other faiths disagree with that definition of life and emphasize instead the sanctity of the health and the free will of women.
“Jewish rabbinic authorities, starting with the Middle Ages, say that a fetus is not a person,” said Rabbi Charles Feinberg, who is retired from Adas Israel synagogue, after participating in the ceremony. “Judaism has always said abortion is never murder. It may not be permitted, depending on the circumstances — how far along the pregnancy is, how seriously ill the mother-to-be is — but it is never murder. It only becomes that once the baby is born.”
Yet everyday conversation about abortion tends to cast it as a question of faith on one side — the antiabortion side — versus secular liberalism on the other. The clergy at this ceremony said that’s not the case. Many women who seek abortions are people of faith who pray about their decision, the clergy said.
LeRoy Carhart, the doctor at this clinic, said he hears many of those prayers. “They’ll sit on the table and say, ‘Is God going to forgive me?’ I’ll say, ‘I take it you’ve prayed a lot about this.’ They all say yes.”
Carhart, a Nebraska doctor, operated a clinic in Germantown until the owners of the property sold it to an anti-abortion group, Maryland Coalition for Life, which had operated a nearby crisis pregnancy center to talk women out of abortion. He found this Bethesda location as a replacement, and offers the same rare service there that he provided in Germantown — late-term abortions that are outlawed in many states and available in only a few locations in the country.
The Senate failed to pass a bill Monday that would have outlawed abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, which are extremely rare in the United States, and most often performed in cases in which a woman learns late in a wanted pregnancy that her fetus is medically not viable. Carhart said he had two such cases this week; they are among the most heartwrenching situations he sees in his office. he said.
President Trump had spoken in favor of banning the late-term abortions that Carhart performs in his address to the antiabortion March for Life earlier this month, drawing applause from the largely Catholic and evangelical crowd.
Veazey, a Baptist pastor, spoke about the legal and moral bases for his pro-abortion-rights stance on Monday. “The Supreme Court affirmed a woman’s right to choose an abortion. But before the Supreme Court did it, God had already done it, because it affirms a woman’s moral agency,” he preached. Several of the clinic’s staff members hummed, “Amen.”
Rabbi Feinberg also characterized the right to an abortion as a question of religious freedom. If a woman believes abortion is ethical, the government shouldn’t keep her from the procedure, he said. “It is not the business of the government. It is the role of every religious tradition and its teachers, its ministers and rabbis, to give that advice.”
As a symbol of sanctification, the clergy sprinkled water in each room of the clinic and in the parking lot, which the Rev. Cari Jackson described as “a space of tremendous decision-making,” where women often face protesters as they walk into the medical building that houses the clinic.
“We give honor to all of these women who choose to come to this space,” said Jackson, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ who has served in United Methodist and Presbyterian Church USA congregations. “We sanctify this space, and we honor this as holy.”
The staff of the clinic and visitors from the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice sang hymns, including the Jewish prayer for healing “Mi Shebeirach,” in the lobby, where signs on the wall say, “It is your REACTION to adversity, NOT the adversity itself, that determines how your LIFE’S STORY will develop” and “Well-behaved women rarely make history.”
Carhart said he believes in God “very strongly,” but he stopped going to his Methodist church when his pastor told him he was risking his safety by predictably appearing in the pews every week. Like other doctors notable for providing late-term abortions, he has faced violence; the moment the ceremony ended Monday, he slipped into a back office to discuss his new clinic’s security cameras and numerous other precautions.
But even without church, he feels he is living out his faith by helping women through what is often the worst time of their lives — the illness or other devastating circumstance that leads them to his office.
“I think in itself, that’s religious,” he said. Most days, though, he doesn’t have a clinic full of clergy in their vestments to back up his viewpoint.
