An Open Letter to a man who would be president: Over the preborns' dead bodies!

Dear Mr. Albert Gore,

    While listening to Barbara Walters interviewing you on 20/20 last Wednesday, so many thoughts ran through my head, that now, as I sit at my keyboard, I don't know where to start.

    I don't know if I should expose you further, Mr. Gore, for your lying, because maybe you can't help it -- after all you've been around Clinton too long. Maybe there's a lying White House virus that you caught. Should I write that you lied through your teeth again, in front of millions of people? The same people you want to lead as their president.

    Should I write that Walters asked you about your flip flop on abortion, when she said, “at one time you were pro-life and now you're not?” And your answer was, “years ago, when I was in congress, I voted against federal funding for abortion."

    Should I write that it wasn't just that one vote, but you had an 84% pro-life voting record?

    Your memory, like your boss', seems to be short-sighted, Mr. Gore. Do your realize that the NRLC has available a collection of letters sent by then Congressman Gore to constituents, expressing various pro-life statements. For example, in an August 22, 1984 letter, you wrote, "I have strongly opposed federal funding of abortions. In my opinion, it is wrong to spend federal funds for what is arguably the taking of a human life. It is my deep personal conviction that abortion is wrong. Let me assure you that I share your belief that innocent human life must be protected and I have an open mind on how to further this goal."

    What happened to that noble man, Mr. Gore?

    Should I write that you can lie with the best of them, including the virus host -- your mentor, Clinton?

    Oh, yes, I caught your slight-of-hand on Ms. Walters' show, “but over the years, as I learned from women, about the situations that confront them -- the many varied circumstances that arrive -- I came to believe that a woman's right to choose (to kill her baby) has to be absolutely protected, not withstanding, what the woman's family income is.”

    You chose the wrong profession, Mr. Gore, you should have been an illusionist. Oh, that's right, you already are. My how quickly we can do an about face when it is politically expedient! Can you say wishy-washy, Mr. Gore? Can you say, "I have no backbone, America," Mr. Gore?

    You see, Mr. Gore, there is a glaring void of credibility here. Consider, if you weren't predisposed to lying, this is what you should have said: “but over the years, as I learned that I couldn't climb the Democratic political ladder being pro-life, I came to believe that votes and money are more important than human life, not withstanding that many of these babies suffer severe pain." At least then you would have been honest.

    But you continued unabashedly, Mr. Gore, saying, “the Supreme court is divided 5 to 4 and the next president will appoint three, perhaps four justices and the court appointed by the next president will interpret the constitution for the next 30 to 40 years and clearly this is a major issue, but I will make appointments to the court according to a philosophical standard.”

    Too bad, Mr. Gore, you don't use God's standards, The Ten Commandments, one of which is, “Thou Shalt Not Kill.”

    Then, Mr. Gore, you had the audacity to say, “I will make it clear that we're going to protect a woman's right to choose (to kill her baby) and my opponent, Gov. Bush has given assurance to Rev. Falwell and Pat Robertson that he will do the exact opposite and take away a woman’s right to choose" (to kill her baby).

    Gee, I had no idea that Falwell and Robertson were such bad people. The nerve of them -- what kind of people are they, for respecting the sanctity of human life. Have they no shame? Do they actually believe God, when He says, “Thou Shalt Not Kill”?

    Don't forget, Mr. Gore, that you said you want gays to serve openly in the military and will try to change the policy of “don't ask, don't tell.” You said, “stop discriminating and persecuting people because they're different from you -- let's expand the circle of human dignity -- we're all Americans."

    Mr. Gore, you are a hypocrite. How about stopping the discrimination against unborn and 3/4 born babies. They also are Americans and have every right to live and raise a family as you have done. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal -- NOT born equal. There's not a scientist in the world who could deny that human life begins at conception.

    But, these babies cannot contribute money to your campaign and to the Democratic party, which claims to be the party of the voiceless and the little people. But when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is, they're nowhere to be found. They will be for causes as long as that cause does not infringe on their way of life, so they would sooner put their energy into saving a tree, or an animal. They don't care if the most precious of all God's creations are killed.

    These babies, who are the most voiceless and littlest of all people, certainly are no competition to your biggest contributors -- Planned Parenthood, who kills babies; NARAL, the nation's most powerful pro-abortion special interest group; the Hollywood Film Industry, the peddlers of smut; NOW, the National Association of Liberal Women. Quite a group -- a group that must give satan a grin from ear to ear. Can you deny this grin, Mr. Gore?

    Where is the dignity in killing defenseless unborn babies? Tell me, Mr. Gore, about the dignity of stabbing a baby in the back of his head, who is completely born, except for the head, then sticking a tube in the opening and sucking his brains out. Studies have shown that many of these babies suffer excruciating pain. Where is the dignity in this, Mr. Gore?

    Walters said, “you served as an army journalist in the Vietnam war and when you came back you went to Divinity school. You said you went there to ask a question -- what was it?" Do you remember your answer, Mr. Gore? I'll refresh you. You answered, “I wanted answered the most important question of my life. It may sound pretty high 'fallutin,' but the question was -- what is the purpose of life? What are we doing here? What should we be doing here? I didn't find all the answers. I found out better questions and better ways to pursue them. You have to live out the answers to questions like that."

    Well, Mr. Gore, this explains why you condone the killing of unborn babies. You learned nothing in Divinity school. You certainly are not living out the message of God and the Holy Scriptures. You are living out the message of satan. You do not even see evil when a baby is brutally murdered while its being born and suffers excruciating pain. As a matter of fact, I heard you once say, that you were PROUD that you were for the rights of a woman to choose (to kill her baby).

    Tell me Mr. Gore, just what are you proud of the most? Is it the death of the baby that makes you so proud, or is it the barbaric way they are killed and made to suffer, that makes you so proud?

    Also Mr. Gore, as long as you brought up the subject of homosexuality, when you were in Divinity school, did you ever come across the following Biblical passage: "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet" (Romans 1:27).

    It must be nice to be able to just pick and choose only the parts of the Holy Bible that don't interfere with your goals in life.

    And another thing Mr. Gore, I'm getting tired of writing in “to kill her baby,” everytime you say the “right to choose.” Please, in the future, say what you mean and don't sugar coat evil. We've had enough linguistic gymnastics from your boss.

    Now, maybe I'm wrong, I'm just assuming that your “choose” euphemism means that a mother, should be able to kill her baby if she so chooses. For all I know, maybe you mean, she should have the right to choose her own religion, or to choose what she wants to write or say. These are our basic freedoms. It’s kind of hard for me to get used to this new freedom -- to torture and kill a human being, if a person so chooses. So in the future don't hide behind these sugar coated, palatable euphemisms. Be a man and have the “guts” to say what you mean.

    These are the things that I would like to write. But nobody will believe that such a man with these barbaric ideas and goals would have the nerve to run for the presidency of the greatest country on Earth.

    Can you deny, Mr. Gore, that through your actions have show clearly that you would like to see the only protectors of unborn babies in the UN - the Vatican kicked out; thus silencing, not only Christian, but pro-life views of all faiths?!

    Or, Mr. Gore, what about your endorsement of World Pride 2000, the world's first international homosexual "pride" event, held this past week and weekend in Rome? You even sent them an encouraging letter, after the Vatican had expressed its displeasure about the week-long event that culminated in a massive street degrading demonstration, where the plan was to flood the city, which surrounds the Vatican, with hundreds of thousands of homosexual activists engaging in parody of the Church and overtly sexual displays. You knew this ahead of time. This year, millions of pilgrims are visiting Rome due to the millennial Jubilee celebrations, which is the reason the homosexuals chose Rome for their first international flaunting of their perverted and deadly lifestyle, which is clearly admonished in the Bible. Good thing only 70,000 turned out instead of the gay group's prediction of 200,000. Maybe there are 130,000 out there who want to be saved! How about one more: you, Mr. Gore?

    But doubts mount among decent voters, Mr. Gore, for you are a man, who has obviously sold his soul to satan in order to move up the Democratic ladder; a ladder that now appears to be held by the prince of darkness, himself -- satan. Each rung may seem grander and grant you more power, but mark, make that mark God's words, Mr. Gore, you will get burned when the ladder collapses.

    Are you, Mr. Gore, a man, who thinks the public all just fell off a turnip truck and would swallow anything -- as they did when your boss (married at that) used the revered Oval Office to satisfy his lust with a young intern on numerous occasions and lied to the entire world, while wagging his finger at them and capped it off when he lied under oath -- which is still called perjury?!

    Oh, what the heck, I think I WILL write about all these things. Maybe there's people out there, who didn't just fall off that turnip truck and who, will say, "Enough of this depravity! We've had it with liars and hypocrites in the White House!"

    One last thing, Mr. Gore. Look in the mirror. Now, considering all the facts I have laid out in this letter, for once in your life tell the truth. Would you vote for that man? I know I wouldn't!

Dr. Frank Joseph
