A Texas Presbyterian “pastor” defended her work advocating for abortions this week, saying she is just “following God’s call on our lives.”

Life News reports:

In an interview with Elle magazine, the Rev. Angela Williams said she opposes the Texas heartbeat law because of her Christian faith.

“As clergy, our calling comes from a higher power,” she told Elle. “We’ve taken sacred vows to accompany people, to love them, and to follow God’s call on our lives; to follow God as we move and breathe and exist in this world. If there are consequences for doing that, so be it.” One of the ways Williams believes she is following God is by advocating against the life-saving new state law.

The heartbeat law (Senate Bill 8), which went into effect Sept. 1, prohibits abortions on unborn babies once their heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. Pro-life leaders estimate it already has saved thousands of unborn babies from abortion and has the potential to save tens of thousands more.

Williams said it is time for clergy to speak up against pro-life efforts to ban abortions. She works as the outreach and faith strategist for Texas Freedom Network, a pro-abortion group that tries to convince Christians and other religious people that supporting the killing of unborn babies in abortions is a religious issue. The network recently started a project urging churches to commit to supporting abortion as part of their mission.

“Reproductive freedom is a taboo topic that people in congregations don’t want to touch with a 10-foot pole,” she continued. “… So people just don’t talk about it, whether they agree with it politically or not, whether they agree with it morally or not.” She slammed the law for violating “my body, my politics, space and values.”

“It’s based in shame. It’s trying to scare people into silence. It might be successful in that regard, but we’re not going to go down quietly,” she continued. “It is important to stand up and say, ‘No.’ We’ve been quiet and silent, and let things happen for fear of disturbing the waters and disturbing relationships—and we have seen the devastating consequences of that. This has to come from a faith voice.”

Williams has visited the Texas State Capitol in Austin to protest the life-saving anti-abortion law.

Those roaches know precisely every “industry”/group they have to infiltrate. Public schools scare me the most. Young minds are so easily swayed and imbeded.
You can take a certain group of high percentage illiterates and they have been pumping them out for decades from the public schools, …………… and still every election the parents vote (D). Never learn, never will learn. That is a prime example of why the public schools scare me the most into the future.

I wonder if this “Reverend “ can quote even one verse from the Bible. BTW, can she find the only verse in the Bible referring to the word, “Reverend”. It’s certainly not talking about her.

Yes I agree . God is a God of Life. God knows us in the womb and has plans for us. In Ecclesiastes God States murdering babies is abhorrent and perverted. Killing babies is a Jezebel spirit. We know how God had her killed for her evil. Read her story. And murded is also one of the ten commandments, do not murder.

This would be a sign that America is clearly on the decline if this is the caliber of people making up this society. If you can follow the logic of this woman then you too need to seek help.

I understand the need for access to abortions, I do not understand a person in a Christian religious affiliation finding a way to make the case for them. In a sane society there would be opposition to subjects and a healthy push and pull between the two sides in order to test their ideas, but the religious person in this situation should be arguing for the moral position which would not include pro-abortion! Now if she were with the church of satan then I would clearly understand her position. I wonder if she realizes that on the debate stage she would be on the side of devil worshippers and the dark master himself, would she feel awkward being on that side of the argument arguing the exact same points as lucifer??? Only in a mixed up world as we have today would someone be so contrarian as to even pretend to believe the things this woman is trying to portray.

Reprobate “pastors” who reject God’s CLEAR teaching will face extra punishment. They have “left natural affection” and have “reprobate minds.”

Please don’t soil the name Pastor, by calling her one. She is not and never will be a Christian Pastor. The Bible clearly defines what a Pastor is and she doesn’t fit the bill. Sorry ladies, God did reserve that calling for men and no I don’t know why.

Our society has lost its civility and morality. There is a $10,000 fine for destroying an eagle egg, yet, we fight to keep the ability to destroy a child! Insanity!

Woman, if your so-called god sanctions murdering infants in their mothers womb then you can keep him. He sounds a lot more like Satan than the Holy God of the Bible.

Texas Presbyterian “Pastor” Angela Williams defended her pro abortion work saying “As clergy our calling from a higher power”. She is a fake. The Bible in 1 Timothy 3:2says that a bishop (pastor) must be the husband of one wife, (not a wife of one husband). Nowhere will one find in Scripture that God calls women to be pastors so one has to wonder where her powers come.

She needs to read her Bible. What happened to love the sinner but not the sin? What happened to discipleing choosing GOD’s will and not our own. What happened to as you follow God, His will becomes your will and wisdom. What happened to THOU SHALT NOT MURDER? We can LOVE those that have taken that step but not APPROVE it. Their shame isn’t for us, it’s for GOD. AND HE HEALS THAT! Christians that believe in abortions and right to decide for our bodies aren’t following Him at all. And those they turn in that direction is on them on Judgement Day.

God gives us this gift of a new life to nurture and protect and she feels it is His will that we tear it up and throw it back at Him? She needs some serious mental care. If it’s not the gift you want then why not just re-gift it? There are plenty of people who would treasure a new baby girl or boy.

God doesn’t tell people to kill people, that is the devil’s domain.

Well that’s not entirely true. When the Jews left Egypt many turned from God and created a false god of gold. Even Moses brother went along with them. When Moses came down the mountain he instructed those who repented and followed God to kill by the sword those who worshiped the false god. The Jews were also told to go into the promised land and kill everyone there. But nowhere has God told anyone to kill a baby in the womb.

Talk about confused!!! I wish people like this would be quiet, better to be silent and considered a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
Abortion is murder, prove me wrong.

Nor Truly a Woman of God either. The issue is not that she is a woman pastor, but that she believes God approves of abortion!!! No Pastor, male or female is called to support abortion!

Yes, it is very sad, but do not refer to them as Commies, they are apparently listening to Satan and definitely not God Himself. I am proud to be one who stands against abortion and will continue doing so until I leave this world, it was not and never will be part of God’s plans for His People. Those who seem to see nothing wrong are apparently listening to Satan and not God, nor Jesus, nor the Holy Spirit, no matter what church they may belong to. I once was Catholic and when I was told to leave the Catholic church by God Himself, I left it over 20 years ago and have had no regrets. Now I stand proudly against abortion which is the murder of an innocent baby that God Himself placed in the womb. Read Psalm 139!!!

The Presbyterian Church and the Episcopal Church have really been rocking progressive for quite a while. I didn’t realize they’d gone this far. How about it, Presbyterians? Is this indicative of what your church stands for?
