This is the time of year theoretically that people are celebrating the birth of Christ. In truth most people are simply celebrating materialism and going into debt to give gifts that people will forget in a matter of days or weeks. Of course the exception is there are families for whom this is a meaningful time of year and the gifts are the out pouring and overflow of a real genuine love for Jesus. Whatever the paradigm for the season, this year there is a gift that goes beyond the pale of decency.

The Indiana chapter of Planned Parenthood is offering gift certificates for their services as stocking stuffers! While they will advocate that they offer a host of services, there is no getting around the horrific truth that there will be people who will use these certificates to help pay for abortions. Which means that in the celebration of the birth of Christ, there will be people, in the name of Jesus Christ's coming to this earth, Emmanuel, God with us, will give someone the means to kill their baby. Is it not ironic to think of celebrating the birth of a baby by paying to kill a baby? This is how upside down we have become in this country!
