The Culture of Death

The liberal mainstream media believes that there is hypocrisy of the Religious Right promoting a "Culture of Life". Are they right?

This will be best explained by illustrating what those who oppose the "Culture of Life" believe. The people opposed to the "Culture of Life" believe in the "Culture of Death".

What is the "Culture of Death" and what do they believe in?

1. Those who believe in the "Culture of Death" believe that if an innocent baby, still in it's mother's womb, is going to be born to a poor young single mother, that it is better for the baby to be murdered than to live.

2. Those who believe in the "Culture of Death" believe that an innocent baby, still in it's mother's womb, is not a person, but property of the woman. It denies life and personhood to a human baby. It says that the human being, in a mother's womb, has no Right to Life, as guaranteed in the founding documents of the United States. They believe that baby is not a human, but a slave of the mother's body. Alan Keyes states "abortion is to our time what slavery was to the 19th Century". The killing of a slave in 19th Century America is no more illegal than the murder of a baby in the mother's womb is today. That is what the "Culture of Death" says and that is how they want to keep it.

3. The "Culture of Death" says that a helpless woman of little intelligence left, should be murdered by the State instead of letting her die of natural causes or instead of letting her parents pay to take care of her. The "Culture of Death" says that letting her parents try new medical advances to try to cure the impaired woman is less humane than murdering her.

4. The "Culture of Death" says that mass-murderers deserve to be let free, back into the public, to kill, rape and mutilate more people. They say it is compassionate to give known mass murderers and rapists the oportunity to murder and abuse more people, so more death can occur. The "Culture of Death" values the life of those who continue to kill others and create more death over the life of innocent victims or potential victims who live their days respecting life. Many statistics show that mass murderers are unlikely to break from their pattern of taking life. Forensic psychiatrist Helen Morrison's research shows that "serial killers, in particular, can't be rehabilitated because their underlying condition 'is probably genetic.' She said their problems stem from an interaction of genetics, brain chemistry and the endocrine system". The "Culture of Death" argues that keeping these hardened mass murderers alive to kill more innocent people is worth more than the life of one of those innocent people.

5. The "Culture of Death" says that Dictators, who commit acts of genocide against their own people, slaughtering hundreds/thousands, should live to kill more innocent people. The "Culture of Death" says that life of one person murdering thousands of minorities, is worth more than the thousands of innocent people he kills. Furthermore, all of those people who are not killed by tyrants like this, who know of the atrocities, are "held in slavery by their fear of death" by ruthless Dictators. The "Culture of Death" value those who commit genocide, and enslave people with the fear of genocide, rather than valuing the thousands of minorities who are murdered or enslaved.

6. Human Cloning is another tool of the "Culture of Death". The "Culture of Death" says that it is good to harvest live human bodies for spare parts, even though this kills the donor, who is forced without consent to their will, to give their life, for their body parts. "In Therapeutic Cloning, a cloned human embryo is used for spare parts and is killed".

7. The "Culture of Death" tries to promote that "in-vitro fertilization is the only thing available to infertile couples, yet less than 0.5% of infertile couples in the U.S. are helped by in-vitro fertilization each year". This process is "monstrous and inhumane" and it is a "sacrifice of human beings for the profit of other persons" and "a prenatal massacre". This process of artificial procreation takes multiple eggs from the mother and fertilizes them with multiple sperm of the father. Any resulting babies showing abnormalities are murdered and the one best living embryo is selected for implantation. Those human lives that are not selected, are massacred. If these innocent human lives are not massacred, they are taken as slaves for medical experimentation, called Embryotic Stem Cell research, and will die from medical experiments.

8. The "Culture of Death" only supports Stem Cell research if it kills embryos (innocent babies). Even though "thousands of people have already been cured or treated by the use of adult stem cells or umbilical-cord stem cells [and], no one has been cured by using embryonic stem cells", those who are a part of the "Culture of Death" prefer killing human babies (embryos), rather than using already successful adult stem cells. This is just like the Nazi research done on living people in concentration camps... performing horrific medical experiments on enslaved people, where the experiment ends with the killing of the innocent being (Jew or embryo). Why use embryonic Stem-Cells with no proven success, over successful adult Stem Cells? promote the "Culture of Death" and take more innocent life.

On April 4th the liberal media got their marching orders from those opposed to the Religious Right. The attempt is to pick apart the term "Culture of Life" and pretend that the support for life is either not real or a hypocrisy.

During Scott McClellan's April 4th Press briefing the liberal mainstream media unleashed their new anti-Religious Right assault. They asked Scott McClellan the following about President Bush, "knowing that the President fully supports the death penalty, used the death penalty, does he see it as a contradiction to use that phrase, 'culture of life,' and still support the death penalty?" They believed they had gotten Scott and he declined to answer. Neil Cavuto was asked this around the same time, as well as Republican Senator Pete Domenici. It appeared to be a concerted effort to attack the "Culture of Life" and discredit it.

The Bible is opposed to the "Culture of Death" and any human being with a conscience should be also. The Bible asks us to protect innocent life, not to kill the weak and needy. The Bible tells us to protect that life from the people who want to kill them. It says: "Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." (Psalm 82:4).

I want to respond to this attack on the "Culture of Life" and affirm that supporting the death penalty is not a contradiction to the belief in the "Culture of Life". In fact, the Lord has given the State the power to punish evil-doers in Romans 13:4 and 1 Peter 2:13-14 to protect the innocent and provide justice, as seen in my Article "Why Would a Christian Ever be Pro-War?".

Those who believe in protecting life must speak out against these atrocities and ask our government to be humane and close the loophole that allows the "Culture of Death" to murder innocent babies. I do not believe that people should mimic the "Culture of Death" by becoming life taking vigalanties, but to be a positive influence on society and to urge our elected representatives to punish evil-doers and to protect the weak and needy.

The Bible concedes that death will reign over the Earth and maybe that is why this "Culture of Death" is so prominent now. The Bible Says:
Romans 5:12-14
"Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned-- for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law. Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come."

Jesus beats death Hebrews 2:14-15
"Since the children have flesh and blood, [Jesus] too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death."

1 Corinthians 15:24-26
"when [Jesus] hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death."

Sadly, according to the Bible, the power of death and the "Culture of Death" will be with us until the end, after Jesus returns, but He will finally destroy it. Until then, join with the Lord to protect the life of those that can't defend themselves. "Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." (Psalm 82:4).
