In a recent op-ed for Time Magazine, Baptist “pastor” Lauren Jones Mayfield made a bold claim. She wrote, “I can’t do my job as a pastor with abortion laws like Texas’ S.B. 8 in place.” Mayfield is referencing the Texas Heartbeat Act, which restricts abortion after a unborn child’s heartbeat is detected.

Mayfield wrote following a roundtable with Kamala Harris:

I was grateful for the opportunity to represent the tens of thousands of clergy around the country who strongly support access to reproductive health care—including abortion access—as a moral issue and a calling supported by our faith’s first teaching to do no harm and love our neighbors.

 wanted the Vice President to understand how a law like Texas’s radical Senate Bill 8–which bans most abortions after around six weeks and empowers private citizens to sue anyone who helps a pregnant person get an abortion after that period–might make my job more difficult in Kentucky.

Live Action writes:

Of the Texas law, Mayfield says that “we certainly should never pass laws that prevent us from showing love and care to our neighbors.” But both a mother and her child are our neighbors deserving of love and care, as Scripture makes clear that God sees the preborn as human beings. It is unclear why Rev. Mayfield thinks she cannot show love and care without promoting abortion. In fact, abortion is never something that a Christian pastor should be advocating for their congregants. It is in direct violation of the Fifth Commandment: Thou shalt not kill. Furthermore, post-abortive women are increasingly opening up about the trauma and regret they experience as a result of abortion. Counseling a woman to commit abortion is neither loving nor caring.

According to Mayfield’s bio, she is a “pastor” in Louisville, Kentucky, and is the vice-chair of Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Clergy Advocacy Board.

No pastor should be promoting abortion. What part of “Thou shalt not kill” does she not understand? As a pastor she should be following God’s Word, NOT encouraging someone to sin.

She and her cohorts don’t sound like “pastors” to me. Baby killer sounds more like their agenda just like the potus and ho harris.

This is the problem with Christian organizations today they are lead by people who do not not even know their own religion. I remember Christ saying bring the children to me not kill the children. How can a so called pastor be in favor of killing a baby.

Proclaiming her belief in the murder of the unborn makes this so-called ‘pastor’ unfit for a pulpit! She has placed herself in a pathway to Hell!

Then she’s another fake Christian like Biden and Pelosi. Why is there a crucifix in her “church”? She pretends to be Baptist, not Catholic. Sick people pretending to be defenders of Jesus. Blasphemy!

She is a member of the church of satan, a true POS. Anyone listening to it does so at their own folly. Next biden will be a paster, they have the same satanic belief system.
This country is going insane.

My faith also states that women are not to be pastors. They can support the church in other ways, but are not to be pastors.
The Bible also teaches us not to murder, and killing the pre-born is murder. So any pastor that claims to support abortion cannot truly be a pastor. Instead, to support the mother and the baby, for women who do not wish to raise a child, there is always the option of adoption and there are many parents looking to adopt children because they cannot have any of their own. Why not show compassion for both? No, this pastor is taking the selfish side and claiming to support reproductive healthcare. If you also want to support reproductive healthcare, then preach to your congregation the important of abstaining and birth control so you do not get pregnant in the first place!

“1Ti_3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;”

Please don’t call her a Pastor. I don’t know why God chose to limit the office of Pastor to men, but He did. They can Prophesize and teach Oh, a bishop and pastor are the same thing in the Christian world, excepting of course the Catholic and those that follow the doctrine (TRADITION) of the Catholic church.

This woman is no christian, in my opinion. She is against Biblical Law as commanded in the Bible. She should be removed as a false teacher.

How can a person be a Christian and believe in murdering the unborn as life begins at conception.
She sure hasn’t been called by God to be a pastor and should be removed immediately from the pulpit

THE “Baptist” church does NOT believe in female Pastors. As the Holy Bible directs. This woman is a fraud and promoter of mass murder as a “Moral” right. The woman is a Goon.

Even so called “Christians” mistakenly believe that monotheism means that there is only one god. What it actually means is that Jehovah requires that you SERVE only one god. There are other gods and these other gods have their own pastors and their own agendas. We are in a WAR and if you don’t understand that much then stop pretending that you are saved. Christ “saved” the people who were willing to re-enter the fray. All the rest is false hoopla.

First of all, she is not a Pastor and can never be, unless God chooses to rewrite His Words. Second she is not a Baptist. She has obviously, a very limited knowledge of Gods word or the Doctrine of the Baptists. So let me assume she is a preacher of a Satanic cult calling themselves Baptists. The Word of God clearly says Life Begins at Conception and all human life has a soul. I will take a few moments to pray for her soul.
