“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” ? Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetuate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Jesus Christ lived in the midst of His enemies. At the end all His disciples deserted Him. On the Cross He was utterly alone, surrounded by evildoers and mockers. For this cause He had come, to bring peace to the enemies of God. So the Christian, too, belongs not in the seclusion of a cloistered life but in the thick of foes.” ? Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Not a single one of those quotes actually refers to abortion.
They are ALL applicable to abortion and any other human rights atrocity, because at their core, crimes against humanity share one common theme: the de-humanization of a certain class of humans. The fact that your moral compass is so far out of calibration that you cannot recognize this is no warrant against those magnificent quotes applied to abortion, RC.
You are taking old texts which pertain to unrelated things and trying to mold them to fit your situation. I would guess that all the people you quoted would be utterly disgusted.
Why should we trust you projection of what people might think when you do not even know it is wrong to apply the death penalty to innocent humans?
And, of course, old quotes on crimes against humanity apply to new crimes against humanity because of the common element of de-humanizing the human. If they did NOT apply, then we could never learn from our mistakes.
Like you seem incapable of doing.
Finally, the two quotes by Jesus are both meant to apply to anyone who is "the least of these," in need, and not limited by examples given.
In fact, Dr. King relied on the writings of the slavery abolitionists, and both relied on the Words of Jesus. So that, right there, proves you wrong, unless you are going to say that Dr. King and slavery abolitionists were not allowed to go back in time to retrieve quotes from similar situations and Jesus Himself. :-)
