Cowardly pastors

Why are the hundreds of pastors on the Big Island who minister over hundreds of churches and have tens of thousands of members in their congregations not at the Hilo Community Surgery Center, where abortions are done that murder innocent preborn babies?


Abortions are performed in Hilo’s version of an abortion clinic Monday through Friday. Exactly how many babies are put to death by abortion doctors is unknown, but the best estimated number I have knowledge of is some two dozen preborn children per week. If anyone can get the exact amount from the Hilo Community Surgery Center, I would certainly appreciate your help.

Presently, Yahweh’s Prolife &Political Incorrect Ministry (my church) is the only church standing in the gap and protesting against the preborn children being executed in Hilo. It’s a disgusting sin against all these pastors who refuse to come out of the safety of their buildings to do their best to stop Yahweh’s preborn babies from being aborted.

What is preventing the hundreds of pastors around the Big Island to come to the Hilo Community Surgery Center with thousands of their church members to stop abortions in that building? Pastors need to get out of their church buildings to become an active voice. It is their moral responsibility to put an end to abortions in Hilo, and their failure to do so makes them cowards.

Pastors and members of all the churches, regardless of their denomination, need to have their physical presence seen in the public arena against abortion at the Hilo Community Surgery Center. Whether they call themselves Catholic Christians, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Baptists, Buddhist, Hindu or just Christians, they need to come out of their church buildings to become the voices for the voiceless preborn babies who are killed by abortion doctors.

Having faith alone in the ending of abortion is useless! The faith, if it does not have works, is dead, being alone.

Yes, a man may say: “You have faith, and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

The irony

According to a notice published in the Tribune-Herald on Aug. 25, the state Department of Health will have public hearings statewide Oct. 8 to consider adding one more “debilitating medical condition” to the list of what qualifies for a “medical use of cannabis” license. The proposed condition is “opioid use disorder and withdrawal.”

So … junkies could get cannabis legally — and that’s all right with me. But isn’t it ironic?

Over and over, for more than 80 years, we’ve been told that pot smoking can lead to heroin addiction. Now the Hawaii DOH is looking to establish that heroin addiction can lead to pot smoking!
