During the latest Republican candidates' debate, Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee spoke as all moral statesmen ought to speak in times like these: with passion and righteous indignation. Fiorina lambasted certain of our elected officials for what I'm calling their low criminality in continuing to support Planned Parenthood. And Huckabee sounded the clarion against the sodomite ("gay") lobby and their supporters for the injustice done to Kentucky clerk Kim Davis. Here's what I'm talking about:

But the Planned Parenthood videos may just be the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back". Where abortion-on-demand was not enough; where sodomite "marriage" was not enough ... to outrage this callous nation of ours, the Planned Parenthood videos may at last be that push that'll start to change things for the better. After all, something similar happened 3200 years ago in the Book of Judges, chapters 20 and 21. It's the story of the Levite and his concubine.
The Book of Judges has some of the weirdest stories you'll ever find in Scripture. It was a time of moral coarseness and gross spiritual decline. In just two generations the covenant people who had once been godly under Joshua and his appointed elders had descended into sodomy, lawlessness, and moral outrages of every sort. It reads like today's headlines. The Israelites had forgotten the fear of God. And the judges of those days were hardly better than the worst of them.
Now here's what happened: a Levite, a holy man, goes to his in-laws to retrieve his runaway adulterous concubine. On his way back to his hometown he's forced to journey through the pagan territory of the Jebusites. Deciding not to spend the night there, he sojourns instead in the Israelite territory of Gibeah. The men of Gibeah demand that he come out of his host's house so they can have sex with him. The host of the house begs them not to do this wickedness, and sends out the man's concubine instead, whom they rape to the point of her death. The Levite demands justice, but the town won't give him justice, and what he does next is so bizarre that it's hard to believe it's in the Bible. But this is the event God uses to humble this coarse culture that once knew him, to bring judgment upon them, as well as remorse and repentance. But it was an enormous price to pay: civil war!

We can learn something from the past history of the Jews, no doubt about it; and not just the shameful things but the good things as well. But every ethical person in the US, regardless of religion should be incensed at the low criminality of our elected and non-elected officials who refuse to allow the defunding of Planned Parenthood and who advocate this continued attack on marriage. Let them know about it!
