Everybody is armchair quarterbacking the election, and I'm no exception. And I think one piece of the puzzle has fallen together.
Why would a man like Barack Obama, so careful not to leave a trail, so careful to vote "present" so as not to take a stand, fight so hard against an inoffensive, common-sense measure like the Born Alive Infants Protection Act?
Because he knew we'd take the bait.
Voting against providing care for born babies, voting for infanticide, is something so hideous, so egregious, something so far beyond the pale, that Barack Obama knew full well that when his opponents pointed out that he'd done it, nobody would believe us.
And wasn't that his answer to the questions? That to support infanticide was so hideous, so horrible, so heinous, that it was insulting to even imply that he'd do such a thing?
Never mind that we could prove that he'd done it. He had over thirty years of accumulated evidence that a majority of Americans refuse to believe that abortion is even legal after 12 weeks -- in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. How could this same populace be made to believe, in a short span of time, that not only are post-viability abortions legal, but that babies that survive them are being left to die? And that their chosen hero endorsed the practice? They couldn't believe it, any more than Ted Bundy's friends could believe that the handsome, personable young man who worked a suicide hotline and rescued a toddler from drowning could possibly be the "Ted" that kidnapped two young women from Lake Sammamish State Park and bashed in their skulls, much less that he killed at least a score of other women. One woman had so hard a time believing it that she married him during one of his trials to prove to the world that their hideous accusations were false. She believed in his innocence up to the moment he confessed, just as many Obama supporters will believe in his innocence until he himself confesses.
Obama knew we'd never be believed. That once we spoke the truth, we'd be branded as liars -- and then nothing else we said about him would be believed either.
Paying ACORN $800,000 to register the dead to vote? Well, look who's making the accusation! The same people who make the outrageous and insulting claim that I support infanticide!
Close association with an unrepentant terrorist? Well, look who's making the accusation! The same people who make the outrageous and insulting claim that I support infanticide!
Embracing a theology of racism and hatred? Well, look who's making the accusation! The same people who make the outrageous and insulting claim that I support infanticide!
Taking illegal campaign contributions? Well, look who's making the accusation! The same people who make the outrageous and insulting claim that I support infanticide!
We fell for it. His vote in favor of infanticide was like a picnic basket set out to trap Yogi Bear. Even if we'd have been able to see the steel jaws, we'd still have stepped up and picked up the bait. We just can't help it. We have a history of trying to make people believe unpalatable and horrifying truths. That we'd take the bait was a no-brainer.
Setting the trap was a stroke of genius.
Were we wrong to try to expose him? I don't think so. Scripture says in Ephesians 5:11, "Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them;"
We are called to expose the works of darkness. Wrapping a gasping baby in a towel and sticking him in a closet to die is a cold-hearted, hideous deed and I think that it would have been a spiritual mistake to have made a tactical decision to give Obama a pass on it. We have to trust in God that ultimately, exposing the works of darkness is the right thing, that He will call accountable those who do the works -- or, in the case of Barack Obama, countenance them.
Obama's puppet masters think that having won the battle, we'll concede the war. That's where we need to prove them wrong. I have convinced more Obama supporters of the truth of Obama's votes, of late-term abortion, of infanticide, in the two days since the election than I did in the months beforehand.
As Chizumatic said, Obama supporters bought a pig in a poke on November 4. We have four years to show them what they bought and paid for. And, God willing, we will see the most massive case of buyers' remorse in the history of this country.
Don't stop exposing the works of darkness. For God has promised us that what is done in the darkness will be brought into the light.
