If I’ve posted it here once I’ve posted it fifty billion times: what I admire most about my faithful conservative GAFCON imitators is that they never exaggerate. That’s why little Peter Jensen’s official envoy to Viagraville so impressed me with the title of his latest piece “Obama’s agenda of death begins”.
This considered and well balanced piece, which can also be found at Viagraville where, if the number of comments is any indication, the author is much more popular than he is on his own site, highlights the new President’s outrageous decision to reverse George W. Whatshisname’s ban on funding foreign family planning agencies giving information about abortion, or which shockingly even go so far as to provide women with access to medically-supervised abortions in safe and hygienic environments.
As a male professional Gafconeer living and working in one of the most yuppified parts of a country which is (as long as you’re white) among the world’s wealthiest and most peaceful, little Pete’s spruiker is amply qualified to make decisions on behalf of unwillingly pregnant African women. Indeed, while reading his stirring condemnation of those lowering themselves to actually care for such ladies one can’t help recalling Our Lord’s words in Matthew 23:4 as He addressed an earlier group of fine upper-middle class men committed to Biblical inerrancy and social purity.
After all, if women in the third world want access to the same options as those in west they should think more carefully before choosing to be born in god-forsaken poverty-stricken corners of the globe. How dare they presume that just because they’re pregnant, with no support, no future, and no hope, that they have some sort of right to make the same choices, care, and facilities as women in countries where everyone understands the importance of a 3 hour bible study on a few verses from Romans? If a coat hanger and an agonising slow death from septicaemia was good enough for our mother’s generation why should impoverished foreigners expect anything better?
No, there’s clearly an agenda of death at work here, and I’m proud to be standing alongside those opposed to it. Besides, everyone knows that what the third world needs more than anything else is more unwanted children.
