Consider this stunning quote from Kermit Gosnell in a phone interview that will be part of a soon to be released documentary about the West Philadelphia abortionist convicted of three counts of first-degree murder:
“My youngest son asked me, ‘Dad, did you do these horrible things that are in the newspaper?’ And I said, ‘Alex, I don’t want to lie to you. I really have to do a lot of reading to feel comfortable that I, in fact, was on solid ground in my thoughts and my approaches.”So where would a man serving consecutive life sentences for deliberating aborting babies alive and then slicing their spinal cords go for affirmation that he was on “solid ground”? For Gosnell, the Bible!
Gosnell went on to say (in a clip first heard atTheBlaze.com)
“And until I really completed my first Genesis to Revelation reading of the Bible — which I did since I was incarcerated — I really didn’t feel as comfortable as I am. I think it’s Genesis 2:7, expresses the breath of life as the beginning of life, that God breathed breath — breathed life — into Adam.
“The Bible, to me, is very clear that life does not happen until breath.”
“I very strongly believe in my innocence and there are many people who believe that … who come to me and say that, ‘How could you be this terrible person and people are coming to you for 40 years.” The story just doesn’t make sense.”
(Genesis 2:7 reads: “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”)
Gosnell’s appropriation of Genesis for his own twisted purposes reminded me of pro-abortion congressional Democrats, including such noted theologians as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) They purport to know more about what their Catholic faith says regarding abortion than the church does, possessing a firmer grasp than, say, the Pope. More about that in a moment.
