If we all would send a letter as I am doing now to the IRS and our reps regarding our 500 000 000 that is one half billion in taxes supporting the slaughter of 4000 babies each day in America by Planned Parenthood and others we will see Almighty God work in ways that move Him to action

Christ talks about the wages of sin throughout his teachings. But He says there is special punishment for those who harm the innocent children.
