Somebody Beat Me to the Punch on Obama's Crocodile Tears

Well, sort of.
Last Saturday, when I saw the picture of Obama shedding tears when speaking about the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, I had the thought, crocodile tears. I also said so in a comment on a friend's post about the way the media vultures were out.
Later, the thought crossed my mind about the hypocricy of Obama. Yes, this tragedy is horrible, very horrible. But where are those same tears over the 1.2 million unborn babies that get murdered every year by abortion?
I also said in that comment that this would be milked as well, refering to pushing for more gun control. Well that has happenned as well.
Saturday, I also decided to do a post on the abortion hypocricy as well.
To prepare, I also talked to several pro-life friends to get their feel.. Everyone, to some degree or another thought the same as I did. When I checked back today, so did those who replied to my comments on the afore mentioned post.
I was going to mention how I felt that not only was Obama insincere, but that when we build a "culture of death" rather than a "Culture of Life" we shouldn't be surprized when things like this happen.
Part of what I planned on saying included the following quote from Mother Teresa:
So, what happens Sunday? Fr. Parker in his homily at Mass uses this very quote. I took that as a sign from God that I was on the right track with what I planned to say today.
Another thing I was going to share was a comment made by a friend that if these children had been about 6-7 years younger & in their mothers' wombs, he would be applauding their deaths.
Today, before I started the post, I decided to look arround & see what was the focus (left & right) of the story. Of course, the main stream media (MSM) & many liberals in & out of Congress were milking this as a way to push for more gun-control rather than admitting the real problem was that Adam Lanza had mental problems & that he fell through the system because of the way it is set up. (See Is Media Giving Adam Lanza the Saint Skittles Treatment? & Baltimore Sun's Zurawik Notes Media Malfeasance at the Outset of Newtown Shooting for examples of how the MSM is misdirecting the public on the real issues)
Another article I came across today had the following poster at the end that summarized some of what I planned on saying:
I repeat once more that this whole incident was a horrible tragedy. But rather than deal with the real problem, the MSM is using the tragedy to push for more gun-control & to make Obama look like a saint rather than the horrific accomplice to the hugest mass murder in this country, that of the unborn via abortion.
We need to look at what could have been done to help Adam Lanza before he reached this point, not blame it on the ready access of guns that allowed him to do what he would have found a way to do even without them being at his mother's home. Mental health is a primary issue, not a secondary one as CNN’s Don Lemon told his viewers
We also need to face up to the demonic root of  the "culture of death" that encourages people to justify violence against their fellow human beings as a way to deal with their problems. As long as we tell children that a woman hs the right to kill a preborn child because it is inconvenient for her, or that getting rid of the child is the solution to the problems in her life, we are telling them that it is OK to kill another human being who is a problem in his or her life.
As 1 article ponts out, "Twenty innocent children were killed in Newton on Friday while more than 3,500 innocent children were also killed on Friday at abortion clinics." You don't hear a call for stricter control on scalpals & suction machines. Instead, even the call for basic regulations on abortion to treat it like any other surgical proceedure that abortion supporters claim is all the proceedure is, they scream that even those minimal regulations are meant to stop abortion, not prevent women from being subjected to conditions that you wouldn't even allow a Veteranarian to have in his clinic.
As I said, the truth is that at the root, this is a spiritual problem. We buy into evil by allowing abortion. So why should we be surprized when this same sort of demonic evil rears its ugly head at a place like Newtown?
I pray that God will reach out & bring His healing mercy to those who have lost family & friends in this horrific tragedy. I also pray that God will open up our eyes to the truth about the "culture of death" so that this country will repent from the sins that are the fruit of building this demonic "culture". Those of us who know the truth must continue to pray as well are make reperation (penance) for the sins of our nation. We should take the example of Daniel in our prayers "I set my face to the Lord my God, to pray and make supplication with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes.and I prayed unto Jehovah my God, and made my confession, and said, Alas Lord! the great and terrible God, keeping covenant and loving-kindness with them that love him, and that keep his commandments: we have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even turning aside from thy commandments and from thine ordinances. . . . O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our princes, and to our fathers that have sinned. But to thee, the Lord our God, mercy and forgiveness, for we have departed from thee: And we have not hearkened to the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his law, which he set before us by his servants the prophets."   (Daniel 9: 3-5, 8-10) Daniel goes on to mention the fruit of this rebellion, fruit that we could very well face as well if we continue the whole-hearted "culture of death" our country has been doing.
