Pennsylvania Senators Display Biased Outrage Over Brutal Execution of Nicholas Berg!

Pennsylvania Senators Display Biased
Outrage Over the Brutal Execution and
Beheading of Nicholas Berg!

Pennsylvania Senators Rick Santorum and Arlen Specter were featured in a news release telecast over a Johnstown PA TV station on May 12, 2004.

Both representatives of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania expressed great outrage in regard to the beheading of Nicholas Berg by Muslim militants in Iraq. Berg was a native of West Chester, PA. Rationale for the execution according to the militants was due to the much publicized abuse of Iraqi prisoners by certain U.S. military personnel.

Santorum and Specter used words such as "despicable," "barbaric," "sub-human," and "animals" in reference to those responsible for the death of Nicholas Berg. And both vowed that those guilty of the atrocity would be brought to justice.

Now isn't that interesting? Of course they are saying pretty much the same thing as everyone else is saying about this tragic incident, including President Bush who echoed much of what the Pennsylvania senators indignantly stated.

Does anyone, including these duly elected members of the U.S. Congress, have an explanation as to why there is no similar outrage expressed over incidents such as that portrayed in the photo below? Notice that this individual was not only decapitated, but for some reason the good "doctor" who did this job decided the right arm should be torn off at the shoulder as well! Be aware, folks, that this did not happen in Iraq, but within the borders of a nation that professes to be a land of justice where individuals should have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness! Well, isn't something like that conveyed in the highly revered historical documents of our republic?

Again THE question -- why no outrage and use of similar rhetoric when it comes to those responsible for the brutal mutilation and murders of over 100,000 unborn children per month within the boundaries of a nation professing to be "civilized" and worse yet, this nation claims to be "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!"

Senator Specter has always sanctioned the extermination of unborn children in the name of "constitutional rights."

Senator Santorum, on the other hand, has been known as a "pro-life" senator. But that is seriously in doubt now in the aftermath of his high profile endorsement of Specter for reelection in the Pennsylvania primary. Presumably he will continue to embrace Specter in the November election.

President Bush also professes to be "pro-life" but went out of the way to stump for pro-abortion Specter during Pennsylvania's primary election campaign. On one visit to Pittsburgh there is a news photo of Bush holding raised hands -- one clasped with Specter's on his left and one with Santorum's on his right -- is there some symbolism in that or what?

The fact remains that these elected officials don't hesitate to express outrage at an incident such as the violent murder of Nicholas Berg, but their lips are sealed with Crazy Glue when it comes to expressing even a feeble protest over the thousands of unborn children brutally mutilated and murdered each week in a nation which professes by inscription on coins and currency, "In God We Trust!"

Those few of us who are 100 per cent persuaded that Almighty God will call this nation and its leadership to account for "crimes against humanity" due to the willful destruction of over 43.75 million unborn children since 1973 still wait to see our elected officials exhibit some degree of consistency and vehemently protest the United States' version of Holocaust! But more important than that, we likewise wait to see these people deliberately initiate action without delay which will end the holocaust!

If they do not take such action, then a very few of us are also 100 per cent persuaded that God will end it at His determined time, and when He does, everyone will know that our times of "fun and games" in the good old U.S. of A. have been permanently terminated!
