Slouching Toward Molech [Video]


In 1919, W.B. Yeats composed the haunting and powerful verse, “The Second Coming.” A few of the lines from his apocalyptic reflection in the aftermath of World War 1 are particularly instructive a century later.

…Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, …

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;

Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

…somewhere in sands of the desert

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,

A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it

Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again; but now I know

That twenty centuries of stony sleep

Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Recent proclamations by prominent politicians celebrating legal slayings of newborn children prompt a question. What “rough beast” is pushing the malevolent assault on the helpless and voiceless among us?

Judging from the present climate, that very beast may be taking civilization slouching toward the altars of Molech instead of Bethlehem.

The Minions of Molech

The name Molech comes primarily from references in the Old Testament such as this,

They built the high places of Baal in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to offer up their sons and daughters to Molech, though I did not command them, nor did it enter into my mind, that they should do this abomination… Jeremiah 32:35 (ESV)

AbortionVarious states within America have begun to publically plunge into the abyss of abomination and self-destruction. They have done so by placing children’s lives on Molech’s sacrificial altar once again.

The minions of Molech are many and they openly advocate and seek to implement infanticide. Pre-eminent among these is Ralph Northam the Democratic Governor of Virginia.

His clear admission that the new bill proposed in his state would allow the killing of a child already born has shocked many. However, that shock wasn’t found within his own party.

Truly the unthinkable of past times is being boldly proclaimed as a righteous defense “of women’s rights.” That is how New York Governor Andrew Cuomo characterizes his state’s new abortion till birth law.

Moreover, there are several other states that allow abortion until birth. Hopefully, N.Y. is the only one with the crown jewel for a Molechian era, the legalization of abortions performed by non-medical persons.

This sounds somewhat like allowing legal ‘back-alley’ abortions. Remember when that phrase was spoken in fear by pro-choicers as something which would savagely kill mothers if Roe v. Wade was overturned.

So much for making abortion ” safe, legal, and rare.” Nowadays, every abortion is a good abortion, the more the merrier, at least to the Left.

Though the states are taking the lead now, there is really only one organization that deserves the blame [or credit from the Left’s view] for the destruction of human life these events portend. That organization is Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood: Merchants of Molech

AbortionPlanned Parenthood has been engaged in the business of selective death since its beginning. The founder, racist, eugenics advocate Margaret Sanger, promoted the elimination of “inferior races” of “human weeds,” as she called them.

Moreover, Sanger became involved with some of the 20th century’s most evil people and movements. Author George Grant writes,

Because of her [Sanger’s] Malthusian and Eugenic connections, she had become closely associated with the scientists and theorists who put together Nazi Germany’s “race purification” program. She had openly endorsed the euthanasia, sterilization, abortion, and infanticide programs of the early Reich.

Sanger was influential in the progressive political circles of her day. However, she would never have imagined being able to finance a state governor’s campaign to the tune of 3 million dollars, as PP did in VA with Northam.

The Planned Parenthood legacy of child sacrifice is extensively chronicled. Next month a film will be released which reveals the less public realities of the Planned Parenthood abortion industry.

This film, “Unplanned,” tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a former director of the largest Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas. She became a pro-life activist after witnessing an abortion herself for the first time.

Planned Parenthood’s vision of the future is to further enrich itself at the cost of the next generation’s lives, and this generation’s souls.

It is a future that will reach beyond the beginning of human life. A dark and foreboding future for us all.

Molech’s Servants will Devour Civilization

AbortionMore than thirty years ago author Joseph Bayly wrote a prophetic novel titled “Winterflight.” It was brilliant look forward at a time which horribly is becoming the present.

Bayly postulated a future where the very old and the very young were considered not sufficiently valuable to society as a whole. Therefore, for the good of humanity, there were mandatory legal limits on the length of life, and legal conditions to be met if life was to continue after birth.

I will not reveal anymore from the book so as not to discourage others from reading it. However, please find or purchase a copy because it is an excellent work, is easy to follow, and will astound many with its dark prescience.

While we are not yet at the extremes Bayly imagined, parts of society are already taking the first step into that black hole of death. The second step is well on its way to becoming reality, though as yet with less attention.

The second step to which the culture succumbs is to eliminate the elderly and the disabled. Bayly envisioned that scenario in his book as well.

Euthanasia is the name for step number two in Satan’s anti-life plans. Molech is just another idol posing as the devil’s doppelganger in this scenario.

In the next article, we will examine the practice of euthanasia. This area has received far less fanfare than abortion, yet it will be coming to help finish devouring what is left of civilization.

Only the power of God Himself can stop this headlong rush to death in our society. Let us pray He moves with a fresh wind of the Spirit to encourage and inspire us to action for life.

For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the LORD, but he who fails to find me injures himself; all who hate me love death. Proverbs 8:35-36 [ESV]

D.T. Osborn

  1. I feel that it should be a woman’s decision to have an abortion or not, but I hear too many complains about the left. Do you realize the problems that so-called president has made? He is a traitor and he should be impeached. Yes, some democrats and republicans make mistakes and some are racists. But you make it seem like the left are causing all of our problems.

    • Thank you for your reply. I’m afraid the evidence does not bear you out. President Trump is not a ‘so-called’ president. He is the actual President of the United States. As for the problems Trump has made, I see very few. His oratory is not the greatest, but the results of his first two years have benefitted the nation in a number of ways starting with the spectacular results of the economy. No person who really examines the evidence can conclude that Donald Trump is a traitor. The Russian ‘collusion’ myth that the Left and Mueller perpetuate is smoke and mirrors with no evidence to support any allegations toward Trump in any way. The Leftist philosophy of Marxist-Socialism is responsible for the vast majority of horrors and death in history. It has racked up a bloody body count of over 150 million just in the last century. Today it is responsible for the destruction of Venezuela, once the richest nation in South America. The people have been reduced to eating their pets and even zoo animals! So yes, I do blame the Left’s pursuit of these ideals for a great deal of the outward problems we see. However, they, along with many Republicans such as the neo-con ‘never-Trumpers’ are symptomatic of the greater evil of making government their God and abandoning the real LORD for their guidance. The Left is also, in my considered opinion, now paving the way for another enemy of freedom, the radical Muslims, to begin their infiltration and invasion of our land. Should these sharia followers succeed in their aims, the Left will find out that Islamic terrorists are a lot tougher than Antifa, and they will be enslaved to Allah despite their wishes, taking America and perhaps Western civilization down with it.

  2. Thank you for your reply. Indeed education, especially self-education, is critically important here. Yes, choices are always there, in fact, they always have been. The questions are upon what basis will the choice be made and is that basis on solid moral ground. Of course, that depends on what one accepts as moral or immoral and why. Christianity provides the truest moral foundation I know, however imperfectly I follow its dictates and wisdom. Thus I come to the pro-life movement with my small contributions advocating for the inherent right to life because I believe wholeheartedly we are to stand for the voiceless and helpless as followers of Jesus. One does not have to be a Christian to be pro-life, but if one is claiming Christ’s approval, I do not believe that one can also favor the “right” to an abortion. Blessings to you and yours.
