Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave a hard-hitting speech on abortion at the Center for Christian Virtue earlier this week.
Carlson framed the abortion issue in a somewhat historical context as a form of “human sacrifice,” alluding that abortion was part of a spiritual battle.
Tucker also described the events leading up to him leaving the Episcopal Church.
The conservative host noted that civilizations throughout history have sacrificed their children, believing the slaughter would bring them joy.
Tucker also noted that child murder became the “one constant in human civilization.”
His reasoning was that abortion is child sacrifice is a “spiritual battle.”
“How does killing your own children advance the cause of perpetuating the species? It doesn’t,” Tucker said.
“In fact, it’s an attack on that. So it’s not a natural human function to want to kill your own children,” he added.
“That’s an idea, an impulse, that was introduced. Outside forces are acting on people at all times throughout history in every culture on the planet to convince people that if they sacrifice their children, they will be happy and safe,” Tucker continued.
As The Blaze reported:
“Tucker Carlson unleashed righteous fury on the abortion regime in America during a recent address to Christians, stressing that anyone who advocates for the slaughter of the unborn “is your enemy” and that the practice of abortion is an evil “religious rite” that is “as old as time.”
During his speech, Tucker Carlson noted that ritual child sacrifice “rears its head about every four chapters,” like modern abortion does today.
“Of all the sins the ancients committed, that sin, every single time it’s described, is called detestable, at least in the [Revised Standard Version],” Tucker added.
The terms of sacrifice, Carlson explains, are the destruction of innocence and innocence in exchange for “power and contentment and happiness.”
“Every civilization on the face of the earth has engaged in it,” Tucker Carlson said.
“The archaeological record tells us that human sacrifice, the sacrifice of children, the killing of children, is the one constant in human civilization,” continued Carlson.
While happiness and safety can’t come through infanticide, it indicates many of the left’s views on abortion.
Tucker also argued that combatting the leftist idea that abortion is a “pathway to joy,” also requires one to accept that the issue is not a “political debate” but a “spiritual battle.
Carlson also gave audience members a call to action, citing the Apostle Paul from the Bible.
He explained how Paul, then “Saul,” was a really bad man who later “pivoted on a dime” to become an advocate of Jesus Christ.
“I find it very inspiring that a truly awful person can become one of the great people of all time,” Carlson said.
Carlson argued that pro-lifers should emulate Paul’s character.
“There’s not a letter he wrote where he didn’t have a sword hanging over his neck,” Carlson said.
While Paul was ultimately murdered for his faith in the lord, Carlson noted that he never bowed to persecutors after committing himself to Christ and was “never afraid.”
Carlson concluded by explaining why Christians should have “no excuse for being afraid” as they know that their fate is sealed, and one day, they’ll enter the gates of heaven.
He noted that “fearlessness” is indicative of Christian faith, and pro-lifers need to fight for life with that courage.
Abortion has gone from being tolerated to celebrated. What kind of sick people would tell you that killing your baby is a pathway to joy? pic.twitter.com/ohaYtnITPr— Tucker Carlson (@TuckerCarlson) September 25, 2023
Tucker has an unshakable argument on this issue, and it’s not hard to agree with him.
