This is soaked with irony, and the saddest part is that false teacher Chuck Currie doesn’t even realize what a self-parody he is. See Statement On Ash Wednesday Shootings Of Homeless Portlanders.
I urge all Oregonians to pray today for the two men experiencing homelessness who were shot early this morning under Portland, Oregon’s Morrison Bridge in what police are calling a random attack.
I think we would all agree that you shouldn’t harm homeless people.
Violence against those who are homeless is a national epidemic, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH).
Violence against the unborn — over 3,000 crushed and dismembered human beings per day — is a larger epidemic. Yet unlike the shooting of the homeless, which everyone except the shooters knows is wrong, we have “Reverends” like Chuck who think one of our problems is that we don’t have enough abortions (he advocates for taxpayer-funded abortions).
But this is a spiritual crisis as much as a political or economic crisis. When we allow people living on our streets to become invisible we begin the process of dehumanization and thus we see the increase in hate crimes against the most vulnerable in our society – those Jesus would have called the “least of these.”
Just replace “people living on our streets” with “unborn” and watch your hypocrisy meter explode. Yeah, Chuck, if you ignore the homeless pretty soon people will kill the unborn simply because they are unwanted. Oh, wait, they do that already, and you think that is a moral good.
Ash Wednesday begins the Lenten season of reflection and prayer. Let our prayers this Lent be with those children, women and men living on our streets in the most prosperous nation on earth.
Any prayers for those human beings living in the womb, “Reverend?”
The attacks today were nothing short of a terrorist attack. The crisis of homelessness is nothing short of sin.
The far, far bigger sin is fake Christians advocating for abortion.
As always, remember that forgiveness and healing are possible for those who have participated in the abortion process.
