Don Cooper shares an abolitionist perspective on the tragedy in Orlando.
It isn’t “easy” to kill 50 people in a nightclub as the president seems to imply with his speech after the tragedy in Orlando. It takes a wicked person who denies that human beings are made in the image of God. It takes a person who holds a worldview that killing innocent people is justified in some circumstances in order to bring about a better good.
It takes a person who is skilled in killing. It takes a person who committed to learning the craft and deliberately makes up their mind to plan, train, and ultimately carry out the act. Not anyone can just pick up a rifle and efficiently and calmly kill that many people.
In fact it is no different from the people you, Mr. President, support in the abortion industry that murder thousands of children every day because, in their view, murdering some people is sometimes necessary to bring about a better good. It is because in their view, some human beings are not worthy of life. And those in the abortion industry plan, train and carry out the deliberate act of mass killings every day. They are skilled killers in a country that gives them the best training around. And you Mr. President are their champion. And WE America tolerate this killing.
We wonder why so much violence in America? Well maybe it might have something to do with the fact that our churches, magistrates, lay-people, and civilians alike, make an exception every day for the worst form of violence that has ever existed – the murder of our children by abortion.
ALL human beings are valuable and have dignity BECAUSE we are made in God’s image. We are not animals. We are not the result of random mutations and natural selection. We are fearfully and wonderfully made AND even our own Creator became a human being. Therefore the shedding of innocent blood of any human being is WRONG. We can’t have it both ways America. Murder is wrong period. You can’t condemn one form of murder while protecting the “right” of another form of murder.
“This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub.” — President Barack Obama on Orlando Nightclub Mass Killing
