News flash if prolifers spent

If pro-lifers spent 1/10 the amount of time helping desperately needy children as they do protesting what a woman does with her vagina, there would be very few needy children in the world. But once a pro-lifer sees that they've been born she no longer gives a shit about them.

True this! I've been saying this for a long time...

Here are some stats from Focus on the Family

Currently, approximately 127,000 children and youth are in US foster care awaiting adoption into a permanent family. Because their birth family was unable to provide a safe home for them, their rights were terminated, leaving these kids as legal orphans.

They are currently in the custody of the state, and case workers are consistently recruiting new adoptive families.....

Adoption from foster care should be completed through a licensed agency and generally costs less than $500 (if anything at all).

Adoption from foster care costs virtually nothing and is often less than $500. In addition, many expenses may be reimbursed through the state. Most states also provide Medicaid coverage for a child until they are 18 regardless of when an adoption was finalized. A licensed agency in your state can specifically address the particular assistance available.

Let's step back and look at the big picture. Ephesians 1:4-5 says, "For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will."

As John Piper so eloquently puts it, "adoption … is greater than the universe … Adoption was part of God's plan. It was his idea, his purpose. It was not an afterthought. He didn't discover one day that against his plan and foreknowledge humans had sinned and orphaned themselves in the world, and then come up with the idea of adopting them into his family. No, Paul says, he predestined adoption. He planned it."1

Our message is simple," said Kelly Rosati, senior director of the Sanctity of Human Life division at Focus on the Family. "California's waiting kids deserve permanent homes. If even a portion of California's more than 10,000 churches got involved, this problem could be solved."

 News flash, dearie......you're not likely to win many friends in this group.  What a way to introduce yourself to a group by insulting more than half of the people in it.

Oh, and btw.....you are and your little rant are nothing new to this group.

I love your well thought out argument. Is this the best thing you could think up?

 When you actually post something intelligent, people might be willing to give you a well thought out argument.

As I said.....your rant is old news.  We've been there, done that many, many times.

Try putting up a post that is really 'news' or 'political'.  After all, that's what this group is supposed to be for, not repetitive personal rants.
