Christianity and abortion


August 1 marks the first day of the implementation of one provision in the "Obama care" law that forces the Church and other faith-based organizations to furnish components in healthcare that oppose their faith.  The President, and DC Democrats support the legality of abortions throughout the entire nine month gestation.   It never ceases to amaze me to consistently see the cohabitation of two completely opposed thoughts, ideas, values and practices surviving in the same mind of any individual.  How could one hold the value of Christianity and abortion at the same time?  I understand the theory of cognitive dissonance where the individual strives for reduction of any one of the dissonant elements.  But how could a Democrat/Christian even remotely reduce the element of Christian values and relationship in favor of the practice of abortion becoming dominant in value and practice?  There must be a bunch of Democrat/Christians in DC with a terrific headache!    Or perhaps that is the reason they have no compunction in forcing faith-based organizations, including the Church, to finance components in healthcare that oppose their faith and value system.
