Obama: “Sound Science” and Faith Not In Conflict
March 9, 2009 30 Comments
Here is Obama’s explanation as to why he is overturning the ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. Pay attention to his words.
This should come as no surprise to us because he has always supported murdering unborn babies. What is shocking is how he places science above faith. He has always claimed to be a person of faith but I don’t know what faith he refers to. It certainly is not Christianity. I think his faith is in his political ideals, not the God who created all that is.
“In recent years, when it comes to stem cell research, rather than furthering discovery, our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values. In this case, I believe the two are not inconsistent. As a person of faith, I believe we are called to care for each other and work to ease human suffering.”
It all sounds good so far, right? Well, I have a question for you. Where do you think these new embryonic stem cells are going to come from? That’s right…from embryos. Our government, at the direction of our president, has just said that it is okay to create human beings for the sole purpose of using them as research material. And our president says that there is no conflict between this “sound science” and a persons faith. Once again, I must wonder what “faith” is he meaning.
In summary, Obama is basically saying that the ends justify the means. He is saying that it is okay to create and destroy these “clumps of cells” for the greater good that can come out of it. These humans beings are expendable in order to achieve his desired results.
Is this what we, as Christians, should believe? If you are a Christian who supported/supports Obama, is this what you voted for? Are you having second thoughts now? YOU SHOULD BE!!
