There were other ancient idolaters who practiced infanticide as well. I think these people were wanna-be liberals. They certainly didn't want to be bothered raising their own children.

Opie... or anyone else's.

RE Opie, Respectively,

Although correct on the practice, the ancients actions were born of ignorance and on a much smaller scale which cannot be said of liberals.

Another difference would be the ancients practiced this in what is believed to be in worship to a deity or a power they placed above themselves, which again cannot be said of liberals.

Although both groups actions are abhorrent let us not demonize the ignorance of the ancients by grouping them with todays liberals.

Sick, sick, sick. Liberals killing their own young. That's Hitleresque IMO.

Opus - one of the reasons why God had Israel destroy the Canaanites was because of their barbaric idol worship which also involved human sacrifice. For example, they would bury a child under the foundation of a new home in order to secure blessings on the premise.

"There is abundant archaeological evidence that many societies practiced both animal and human sacrifice to persuade the gods to protect their buildings and ensure safe passage through dangerous areas where their own gods might lack jurisdiction. Burials suggestive of sacrifice have been found in the sites of ancient bridges and buildings throughout Asia, Europe, and North Africa. It was widely believed that territories were under the control of local gods who might be angered by intrusions. Blood sacrifice at border crossings (often marked by rivers) and within buildings were thought to be prudent offerings. Sacrificial victims were also interred beneath city gates.

Children were often selected as the sacrificial offerings. Excavation of the Bridge Gate in Bremen, Germany, and several ancient fortresses in Wales are among the many examples of this practice."

From a Christian perspective, the ancient pagans are just as guilty as modern liberals, for Scripture tells us that there is no excuse for their ignorance.

Romans 1:18-20
"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."

Teresa - the Nazi's practice of euthanasia and abortion is being followed by the liberals. Hitler legalized abortion in 1935 and in a short time German doctors, in a nation of only 65 million people, were murdering a half million children a year.

On July 22, 1942, the Fuhrer exhibited a highly positive attitude towards abortion as an indispensable method of dealing with the non-German populations in countries under Nazi control. "In view of the large families of the native populations," he asserted, "it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible." Hitler also personally announced that he "would personally shoot" any "such idiot" who "tried to put into practice such an order (forbidding abortion) in the occupied Eastern territories.

They Say/We Say said...

The ancients actions were also Military.
When a Great Nation was targeted, they would infiltrate and convince the people to offer children to strange gods, knowing full well that would anger Yahuah-turn his face, and allow the Great Nation's enemies to take over without the sword (little resistance).
Can't we see? Not knowing history (Or not speaking out about it!) will be a path to repeating it.

"We want abortion safe, legal, and rare."

Note the "rare" part of that? Liberals don't want abortions to happen, hence the focus on birth control, so there are no unwanted pregnancies. Whereas conservatives are so obsessed with eradicating all abortion they want to force women who were raped to carry the rapist's child. Using your logic I could say "conservatives love rape, the even want to reward the rapist by giving him a child."

Tee - I'll leave this one up just to show other readers the twisted, torturous lengths a liberal will go to make a non-existent point.

Liberals have been saying exactly that for years and yet have bitterly resisted any efforts to do so. And 1.5 million murders a year continue unabated. Like all of the liberal agenda, it is based on a lie.
