Are you human?

He's been found guilty:
A jury Monday found a Philadelphia abortion provider guilty of three counts of first-degree murder.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was accused of killing babies by using scissors to cut their spinal cords. Authorities alleged that some of the infants were born alive and viable during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy.
[...]
During his closing remarks, Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney Edward Cameron turned to Gosnell and yelled, "Are you human?"

Of course he's human. So are the women who sought his assistance in murdering their babies. Humans are icky. Can we please put to rest this humanist philosophy that for the most part people are good.

God is good.

    And we are supposed to believe that Eric Rudolph, the guy who bombed the clinics in the 1990's, is the bad guy.

  2. Okay, not having followed this in the news, I'm confused. The preferred late term abortion method is sticking scissors into the base of the skull and extracting the brains (D&X), preferred to the previously preferred method, D&E. What was the problem with what he did? All babies at this stage are viable. Owing to Doe v Bolton, all a woman has to do at anytime during her pregnancy is say the pregnancy is causing her stress and abortion is legal. Guess I should try to follow the news coverage on the case. If most people are ignorant of the ugly realities of abortion and this got ANY notice, praise God. In fact, some docs offer the woman an opportunity to hold her murdered baby after a D&X, because, well, the baby is "intact," as opposed to D&E wherein they are cut up and/or yanked out in pieces. Insanity.

  3. I have had this conversation with my mother-in-law, who is an atheist. She will use the line about believing that, on the inside, people are basically good. I don't know how anyone can look around the world and not confess that humanity is totally depraved.

  4. According to the Kapow podcast there is a chance he is not. I have been following as I can stomach.

  5. Only people who have lived their lives in a first world country, surrounded by 5th, 6th, nth generation Christians would think human beings are basically good people.

    The guys who worked for me when I built fences for a living told me on Mondays how a fight started over a cigarette or half a bottle of beer and ended with someone being bludgeoned to death with a hammer. One's kid contracted TB and two months later, the child STILL wasn't taken to a free clinic to get medication. The only reason for this? It cuts into mommy and daddy's drinking time.

    1. Yes. I love reading debates involving American atheists and their insistence that their morality has not been influenced by Christianity.
