An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

A speaker at a recent state-sponsored meeting on the Mississippi Personhood Amendment has been exposed as something other than what he claimed to be.
Vincent Lachina attended last week’s meeting in Tupelo, wearing a clerical collar, claiming to have a connection with Mississippi for the Mississippi-only meeting, and stating he was ordained in the Southern Baptist Convention. He spoke against the proposed constitutional amendment (Initiative 26), which will appear on the November ballot.
Clerical collar? Well, that should have been their first clue. I’ve yet to EVER see a Southern Baptist pastor wear a collar, of any kind, other than what comes on their shirts. You’d think folks in Mississippi would have been suspicious right off the bat! It’s not like there aren’t a lot of Southern Baptists in the SOUTH.
“And as it turns out, he is a homosexual activist and a chaplain for Planned Parenthood out of Seattle, Washington,” states Les Riley, who heads the Personhood Mississippi movement. American Family Association’s Jacob Dawson discovered the truth about Lachina while in the audience and revealed his discovery there.
A baby murdering factory has a chaplain? Of what? Does he sacrifice the babies on the alter of their evil?
Moreover, a subsequent check by Live Action with the Southern Baptist Convention reveals Lachina is not listed as ordained in the SBC.
“… That’s not a surprise,” Riley responds. “You know, I always tell people when I go out and talk about the Personhood Amendment that we have to understand that people who will kill babies for a living, people who will harm women — particularly people like Planned Parenthood with a genocidal agenda — will lie to keep it going.”
The fact that the left lies shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, including the left. I mean, after all, destruction is their stock and trade. Destroy families, destroy babies, destroy economies….the list is long. And who is the ‘prince of lies’? And who is the king of destruction? Wonder if this guy is a ‘chaplain’ for him?
Next month, America will honor the anniversary of September 11, 2001, when terrorists killed nearly 3,000 of our fellow citizens. In the days after 9/11, Americans stood together as one, setting aside partisan fervor and recognized a common enemy in Islamist terrorist groups, particularly al-Qaeda. National security was rightfully restored as our nation’s highest priority.
Ten years later, Osama bin Laden is dead, delivering to victims’ families and the rest of America a bit of justice for the heinous acts we all witnessed. But one terrorist’s death does not justify returning to the national security mindset that existed prior to that day.
As Thomas Paine said, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.”
