On May 6, a draft opinion for the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization was leaked. The draft insinuated a potential overturn of previous decisions Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. These two cases presented a national mandate to the fifty states, making it illegal for the individual states to outlaw child murder as a form of backup contraception.
In response to the leak, a group calling themselves Jane's Revenge firebombed a crisis pregnancy center in Madison, Wisconsin, on May 8. They threatened increasingly more extreme attacks should Roe v. Wade be overturned.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has labeled Jane's Revenge a violent extremist group. More importantly, the authoritative and time-honored institution, Facebook, branded Jane's Revenge a terrorist organization. In so doing, Facebook granted its permission, authority, legitimacy, and blessing to the federal government for the DHS's future actions with respect to the extremists.
On June 24, the Supreme Court handed down the final version of the Dobbs decision, overturning Roe and its ilk. Terrorists Jane's Revenge answered by defacing Manhattan's Ascension Catholic Church on June 27. Attacks attributed to the group have occurred in twelve states and in the District of Colombia.
It is apparent by their actions that Jane's Revenge hates Christians. Christians have long been at the forefront of pro-life initiatives, such as through support of crisis pregnancy centers. The U.S. DHS has said of Jane's Revenge that they target the buildings of "ideological opponents." Given the terrorist group's mission, its biggest ideological opponent is by default the Christian faith.
The attacks like the ones for which Jane's Revenge has claimed responsibility are not limited strictly to buildings. Individual Christians have been targeted for violence by like-minded extremists. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Catholic, was accosted at his home by an armed gunman in the days running up to the June 24 decision. Religious intolerant terrorists Jane's Revenge are believed to be responsible for an attack on Michigan Congressman Tim Walberg. Walberg is a nondenominational Christian pastor.
Given this context of ideological civil war, it is troubling that no one seems to have expressed any concern over the safety of U.S. President Joseph Biden. To be certain, we desire nothing but the continued safety and wellbeing of both the U.S. and its president. We do not wish that misfortune befall either. That said, amid the current persecution of Christians, is no one concerned for the president, seeing how outspoken a Christian he is?
As he has expressed on many occasions, Biden is a practicing Catholic. Pope Francis even called him a "good Catholic" during a meeting with the president on October 29, 2021. If the pope's judgment on who is a good Catholic cannot be trusted, then whose can?
In a public statement, Biden said that although he personally is opposed to physician-assisted child murder, politically, he is hands-off about the matter. President Biden, "good Catholic" that he is, must therefore be so concerned for his safety in light of the widespread terrorist attacks that he fears speaking his mind.
Why else would "good Catholic" Biden controvert his dearly held religious beliefs if he were not in grave fear of his personal safety? Why else would he condemn the repeal of Roe v. Wade as a "sad day" and "tragic error" if he were not desperately afraid of reprisal?
Certainly, there is more to what the president is not saying than to what he actually has said. The subtext is clear.
"We hear you, Presidente Biden," remarks Isermno public safety superintendent Fidelissimo Greenspoon. "Please, Mister Presidente, we can help you. However you can, point out who is forcing you say those awful, untrue things you don't actually believe."
Isermno stands ready to assist the United States and all the other less developed countries of the world. Thus far, however, the upstart American republic has yet to accept the aid package.
This is understandable, as the fledgling U.S. has always had a "do it ourselves" attitude since its beginnings. In 1773, they chucked a shipment of tea into Boston harbor to demonstrate they could rule themselves better than the British could; whereas in the run up to the conflict with Iraq, President George W. Bush famously announced that he would go to war regardless of whether the rest of the world backed him or not.
We get it, America. You're the new kid on the block and you've got something to prove. Sometimes, though, we have to ask: "You okay, America? You've been acting funny. Everything all right at home?"
We're here for you, but be so kind as to call every so often to tell us you're okay.
