moral high ground?

Let’s be clear, the use of poison gas in Syria whether directed by the Assad regime or the rebels is a disgusting, cowardly, and immoral act. The vision of 1500 people lying dead with many of them little children, staggers the moral conscience. Thus Secretary of State Kerry, in an emotional appeal to this nation and the world, attempted to gain the “moral high ground.”

Unfortunately, as author, Alfred Alcorn, once stated, “The moral high ground to which I aspired had turned into a slippery slope.” You see, it takes more than the words of an elitist to overcome decades of hypocrisy in an effort to take the “moral high ground.” As Gregg Cunningham wrote, “More Americans were killed by abortionists on September 11 (about 4,300) than were killed by Islamic terrorists (about 3,000).”

While Assad has killed over 100,000 with conventional weapons, and several thousand with poison gas, Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry have vigorously supported Planned Parenthood and the subsequent killing of 50 million of their fellow citizens, many by chemical means much more barbaric than poison gas. These chemicals burn the flesh and suffocate and, if insufficient, the pre-born child is then ripped apart to prevent the “unwanted pregnancy.” In contrast, the Bible teaches that the fruit of the womb is God’s reward. What hypocrisy! Therefore, how does the U.S. assume the hubris to claim the “moral high ground” that presumes the authority to punish those who have inflicted similar pain, but on far fewer people?
