I've been thinking about the word defile a lot lately so that usually means it's time for me to do a blog post.

This 6 letter word is nearly obsolete but I'm thinking it really shouldn't be. In fact it's about time to bring the word back into fashion because there is so much defilement going on in America these days; let's take a look at what God says about it.

As He is wont to do, the Lord likes to give us ample warnings about things to avoid although a great many of us like to ignore the warnings at our own peril.

Before I consult a concordance, I can think off the top of my head of how we would all be smart to avoid defiling our spirits, our bodies, our homes and our nation. That said, we aren't doing a very good job of avoiding polluting our selves and nation and that, sadly, is creating a very debased cultural climate.

"Numbers 35:33 "'Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it."

Can there be any doubt that the abortion industry is defiling America by the shedding of innocent blood over 4,000 times every day?

The cavalier attitudes of the people entering America's death camps, seem completely oblivious to the long term damage to their own souls or to their family, neighborhood or their state or nation because of their selfish, "choice." They curse those offering help, give them the finger, or just shrug their shoulders at the imprecations that there are eternal consequences for leading innocents to the slaughter.

Of course there wouldn't be a constant stream of 25-30 willing to kill their babies every day at Denver's evil Planned Parenthood if our young women weren't allowing themselves to be defiled by young men who are completely willing to use them but have no interest in supporting any resulting children from their "illicit" couplings.

Would our young men and women be more chaste were their spirits not defiled by the cultural filth pumped out by the porn industry with nary a care how young the victims whose spirits are forever impacted by what their eyes see?

Purity, chastity, sanctity more nearly obsolete words that our youth have rarely if ever heard ~ Pastors, will you preach on what protects the hearts, minds, and physical bodies of your young people?

Who can deny our nation's soul is so defiled by abortionists making life so cheap that the words of Ezekiel ring true across the land: "therefore as I live," declares the Lord GOD, "I will give you over to bloodshed, and bloodshed will pursue you; since you have not hated bloodshed, therefore bloodshed will pursue you;" Ezekiel 35:6

"Humanity ~ a Malignancy in the Planetary Ecosystem"

The Colorado Statesman recently carried an editorial by Boulder's late term abortionist, Warren Hern, promoting his longstanding notion that human beings are a cancer on Mother Earth ~ which conveniently leads to justifying his unseemly avocation.

In his own words, "We humans have become a pathological process — a malignancy — in the planetary ecosystem. The human species now displays all the major characteristics of a malignant process."

In 2009, Esquire Magazine did a lengthy article featuring Hern, who they claimed was the last late-term abortionist in America.

"By the way, he hates the word abortionist. Though it is a simple descriptive term like "podiatrist," the opponents of abortion have turned it into a degrading and demeaning word that has the same negative connotations as the most despicable racial epithet. All the same, it is the right word, an accurate word, and our discomfort with it is but a measure of how poisoned the language of abortion has become."

The Esquire interview is remarkably fair and explores a bit of how the innocent child on his mother's lap would "evolve" into one with such a controversial view of humanity. "Late that night, he calls you at your hotel. You're reading one of his many scientific publications, which have titles like Shipibo Polygyny and Patrilocality or Urban Malignancy: Similarity in the Fractal Dimensions of Urban Morphology and Malignant Neoplasms. This one argues that man is a "malignant ecotumor" laying waste the planet. One of the main characteristics of a cancerous growth is that it resists regulation. A cancer cell is a cell that reproduces without limits."

For more of his philosophy the entire article is here.

Pro-lifers in beautiful Colorado have long bemoaned our fair state being home to America's lone remaining abortionist willing to kill babies only weeks from being born.

Hern's Colorado Statesman article was wearing on me and I felt convicted to reply but with great gratitude, I discovered that Denver Post carried Vince Carroll's response this week. With subtle humor and insight he gives Hern credit where credit is due, "Hern offered this apocalyptic prediction recently in The Colorado Statesman, but he's been banging the drum of gloom regarding population for years — while doing his own small part, of course, to alleviate the extent of the "malignancy."

"But let's drop the matter of Hern's vocation so as not to prejudice the discussion. What's fascinating about his almost hysterical anxiety over population growth is how it is refuted by facts on the ground. But Hern is so rooted in a fearful tradition that dates back to Thomas Malthus that he simply can't help himself." continues . . .

In one of his most honest moments about the nature of his work, Hern said, "We have reached a point in this particular technology (D&E abortion) where there is no possibility of denial of an act of destruction by the operator. It is before one's eyes. The sensations of dismemberment flow through the forceps like an electric current. ”

In another rare moment, "Warren Hern's statement at an Assoc. of Planned Parenthood Physicians meeting in San Diego — Oct. 26, 1978 “Most physicians regard abortion as a stigmatized operation done by people who are otherwise incompetent and can't do anything else ... If you're going to do abortions and make that your specialty the best you can hope for is to be tolerated by your colleagues...” — American Medical News, Sept. 5, 1994 Abortionist Warren Hern" ~ as reported by Operation Save America.

Esquire continues, "The abortionist comes back to the reporter from Wichita. The antiabortion movement is the face of fascism, he says. It cannot be separated from the ruthless and cynical manipulation of antiabortion rhetoric by the Republican party."

Sadly, the long years involved in the shedding of innocent blood seem to be taking a toll on Hern's grasp of reality. Just a cursory review of American history would reveal that it was Republicans who championed liberty for the slaves and who, far more than any other party, advocate for liberty to our pre-born citizens. Three of the major Republican presidential candidates have signed the Personhood pledge. That the child in the womb is a person and not the property of the mother, is the constitutional affirming position.

Should your heart be moved to pray for Warren Hern to leave this abominable practice and use his abilities for good, you can read more about him here
