Watch: Democrat legislator harasses elderly woman praying outside abortion clinic

Pro-abortion Democrat, and misogynist
Pro-abortion Democrat, and misogynist

I follow Senator Ted Cruz on Twitter, and he tweeted out a video posted by the legislator in question. The legislator, from Philadelphia, is a Democrat. And he thought it would be a great idea to go to the local Planned Parenthood clinic, and film himself in an interaction with an elderly woman who was praying outside.

Here’s the video: (Must-see!)

(Another link, another link, another link – in case that video is taken down)

And Life News has the story:

A pro-abortion Democrat lawmaker posted a video of himself harassing a peaceful pro-life protester while invoking his office last week in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania state Rep. B**** S*** repeatedly bullied the pro-life woman in an unhinged rant as she stood alone outside a Planned Parenthood in his district in southeastern Pennsylvania.

S*** called the woman a “racist” and her sidewalk counseling “grotesque.” He followed her around, hurtling insults at her; and at one point, he got in her face with his camera and ignored her requests to leave her alone.

He wanted to get the woman’s address for some reason, maybe for vandalism, or something more violent. He’s famous for being an openly gay college football player, so he’s definitely strong enough to be a physical danger to her. People like to talk about toxic masculinity and bullying, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a better example of toxic masculinity than from this bully. He clearly has no idea how his greater height, physical strength, etc. would be perceived and experienced by an elderly woman. Or maybe he does, and he just doesn’t care.

I think a lot of Democrats like to think that they are representing women, but they are only nice to women who agree with them. If a woman is pro-life, or has actual Christian convictions, then this is how they get treated. This interview of the Democrat reports him saying that he’s an atheist. I thought it was interesting how a self-confessed atheist started lecturing a religious person on how to be religious. Not sure why so many godless people think that they should be trusted as an authority on religion. His biography says that he was raised Catholic and stopped attending church at 16. Whatever was going on in his head at the time, you can be sure that it wasn’t evidence that convinced him to do that.

Now a man is designed to have an inclination to protect children, animals, anything weak, from strong aggressors. But abortion changes all that. When a man decides that inconvenient children can be killed for the benefit of the selfish adults who made her, then all bets on morality are really off. He’s willing to kill an innocent unborn child that gets in his way. So anything is possible. She should really be afraid of him, even there in broad daylight.

I think the lady did the right thing, by calling the police.

Town Hall reports that he may have broken a state law:

Pennsylvania Democratic State Rep. B**** S*** thought it his duty to videotape and harass a pro-life woman protesting against abortion outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in his district, repeatedly telling the unnamed woman he had the same constitutional right to film as she did to protest. While Americans have the right to record protesters in Pennsylvania, the state also has a strict a two-party consent state, meaning even in public both parties involved in a conversation must give consent to be audio or video recorded. At various points in the video, Rep. S*** indicates he wants to have a conversation, to each time the women says no and does not give permission to record.

But this is Philadelphia, the city of Kermit Gosnell, so they have a habit of overlooking violence against women if abortion rights are at stake.

Life News says that this isn’t the first time that he’s tried to use coercion to bully those who disagree with him:

LifeNews recently learned of a second video that S*** posted several weeks ago where he made a similar request. He offered his viewers $100 to identify four pro-life women who were peacefully praying outside the same Planned Parenthood.

His requests suggest that the state representative may be trying to intimidate pro-life advocates through doxxing, an online practice where a person’s name and contact information are posted publicly online usually to encourage harassment.

The women, who he called “pseudo-Christians”, were just praying outside the clinic. I guess he thinks that if they were really Christians, then they’d endorse homosexuality, abortion, and the entire secular leftist platform – something which would be at odds with the Bible, and Christianity down through the centuries. But I guess his need to not feel “shamed” is more important than their freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. His feelings matter more than your rights, so he’s justified in silencing you.

I have spent a lot of my life studying scientific, philosophical and historical evidence for theism in general, and Christianity in particular, but there is another argument for Christianity that is personally convincing to me… although I would never use it in a debate. And that argument is how the Bible describes sin. I read how the Bible describes sexual sin in Romans 1, and then I see how sexual sin sometimes causes people to hate others and to use force to coerce, silence or destroy them. This is why the Bible calls some behaviors “sinful”, because people who do them know it’s wrong, but they think they can make the guilt from rebellion go away by coercing those around them to celebrate the sin. By the way, I include abortion, divorce, adultery, premarital sex and even drug or gambling addictions as sins.

He seems to be unable to control his temper when faced with people who haven’t turned their backs on the God of the Bible, and who are actually doing hard things in order to promote the moral values of the God of the Bible. There is something about Christians taking God seriously that offends him, and his response to their authentic self-sacrificial service to God is hatred and violence. It’s probably a good idea for us who take the Bible seriously to be seen acting self–sacrificially on our convictions. It bothers atheists, and that’s a good thing.

      1. One can only hope…….

        Seriously, though, look at how many times he tries to shame this harmless, elderly lady for simply walking up and down and praying. He uses the word “shame” dozens of times, repeatedly. He’s obviously DEEPLY ashamed of himself and his gay lifestyle, and has a great hatred for “religious folks.”

        Could he have been molested as a boy by someone (priest, Sunday school teacher?) in the Church, when he was still a practicing Catholic? Could be. That would explain a lot, including his atheism. And he mentioned the molestation scandals rocking the Church in Pennsylvania.

        We really DO need to pray for this guy, boorish though he is. It is what God would have us do, show love to those who oppose us. Something I fail at and fall miserably far short of, all the time.

        If you can understand your enemy, you can love him.

  1. Smh… Sad. And this man is supposed to “represent” the good state of Pennsylvania?

    Hmmm…

    A lot of praying like the elder sister in video is needed for people like him these days.

  2. I agree abput the sin idea. I would also never use it on a debate.

    But the illogical hated of Christianity for really doing almost nothing. Along with denial of facts and refusing to look at how all cases of bad Christianity were either a perversion that was preached against and ignored by man ( us slavery system).

    It pushing back against attacks with the crusades stopping the slaughter of innocent Christians, as some kind of proof of Christians being evil.

    It is because those with dark and wicked hearts want to see those lies. The deception of the wicked one has made them unable to see the truth.

    It is why I try to identify if a person is serious in a discussion and if I beleive they arent seeking truth I let them beleive they won and rarely waste time responding if no one else is around to hear what they say.

      I find that much of what I call “village atheism” is 99% steam fueled by a few “whataboutisms.” In the case of abortion, the whataboutism is “what about a woman’s body?” If you or I or anyone else are dealing with a person who’s an expert in whataboutisms there is very little truth-seeking going on since whataboutisms are inherently self-seeking or self-justifying,
      It is axiomatic for Jesus that “the pure in heart shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). Even in the oft-quoted 1 Peter 3:15 we are only to give a defense to those who ask and it isn’t unreasonable that Peter was thinking of a sincere asking.
      True story about this in my own life. Matt Walsh wrote an article a month or so ago on the Daily Wire addressing an article in the New York Times where an atheist claimed to have refuted God’s existence. Matt Walsh refuted most of the points made in the NYT article and one rebuttal on the empirical problem of evil. The comment section at Daily Wire literally exploded with atheists throwing around all manner of completely irrelevant objections to the article. It was as if they were throwing custard at the wall to see what would stick. One poster named Derek started a thread with “Faith is believing without evidence.” I decided to bite since I knew that this definition is at best a misunderstanding of what biblical faith is. I challenged him to test his definition by inserting it into every verse of the Gospel of John every time he sees the word “faith” or “believe” and see if the verse makes sense. Long story short he refused to even consider the possibility that he might be mistaken and when I pointed out that he was dogmatically holding to his atheism he finally saw the irony of the whole situation and stopped responding to me. There was another atheist in the thread (EvilThor) who also engaged me but kept on the same mindless Richard Dawkins “faith is believing without evidence.” At one point in the conversation, I finally said, “I feel like we’ve hit an impasse so go ahead and have the last word.” He finally relented and gave in and said “fine we will go by whatever definition you want. I feel like you are the kind of Christian I like to talk to.” I thanked him for extending me an olive branch and directed him to the arguments in Frank Turek’s “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist” book. I’m happy to say he’s reading the book now and I hope to hear from him again.

  3. What an obnoxious bully and moral hypocrite – he needs to take the log of his own depravity out of his own eye before judging her.
    He also resorts to the narcissistic ploy of deflection and guilt-tripping.
    Then there are his mis-statements about rights and racism:.
    1. The baby has no say about its body and right to life.
    2. It’s mostly black babies that are killed through abortion.
    Isaiah 5:18-20, while being a rebuke of Israel, is relevant as it speaks of those who exchange right for wrong and wrong for right, and who “are wise in their own sight”.
    Psalm 12:8 “The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honoured among men.”
