The Pagan Commonwealth of Massachusetts Embraces the God Molech

Printed from:

Who is the god Molech and how does Massachusetts fit in?

Molech was the god of the Canaanites mentioned repeatedly in the first five books of the Old Testament (known collectively as the Torah in Hebrew). Young sons and young daughters were sacrificed in a fire to Molech to make amends for their supposed transgressions against him and for the family to gain Molech’s blessings.

Two key passages warn against child sacrifice: “Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God” (Leviticus 18:21); and “Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech must be put to death” (Leviticus 20:2).

Other passages also warn against it, such as the command in Deuteronomy 18:10 that no one “make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire.”

Even so, it’s clear from biblical and extra-biblical sources that child sacrifice was often carried out by ancient peoples.

A collaborative paper by academics across the globe, including at Oxford University in England, found that parents in the Phoenician settlement of Carthage (in North Africa, in present-day Tunisia) ritually sacrificed young children as an offering, burning them alive. The remnants of many female and male babies have been found by archaeologists there, testifying to this gruesome practice.

Is the god Molech still alive and well in Massachusetts? Is there really a great difference between the Massachusetts parents who abort their unborn children and the parents in Carthage and the Middle East who sacrificed their young children in the fire?

In 2021, the lives of approximately 16,800 unborn children in Massachusetts were terminated. The lives of a few dozen of these unborn babies were ended post-24 weeks – when most babies can survive outside of the womb.

The Roe Act, which was enacted in the Commonwealth in December 2020, took away a provision in state law that required doctors to try to save the life of a baby born alive after an attempted abortion. In other words:  A form of infanticide.

Many in the pro-abortion camp no longer support abortion in the way that President Bill Clinton did when he used the phrase “safe, legal, and rare.” This used to be a standard Democratic talking point. No longer. Many Democrats no longer agree with the goal “rare,” which implies that abortion is somehow wrong. Instead, abortion is presented as not just a fundamental right but also a positive good.

In a recent article in the The Nation, Nikaya Natale celebrates her two abortions in the context of Thanksgiving Day (with emphases in the original):  “But I am thankful for both of my abortions. I am thankful that I didn’t want to be a parent then, so I didn’t have to be a parent then. The blessing to plan a pregnancy and have a child when I wanted to have a child is something I have immense gratitude for. I really am thankful for it …”

So instead of abortion being an unfortunate or immoral act, which one has undergone due to ill-fated circumstances, abortion is seen a blessing, something for which to be grateful. For many women, the need to control the so-called the trajectory of their lives through the control of their bodies has become a god. They must sacrifice their unborn children to this idol.

In ancient times, nations that practiced child sacrifice were scorned by those that didn’t, and ultimately consigned to the dustbin of history. The god Molech was an idol that promised parents “the good life” if they sacrificed their child in the fire. Those nations did not survive.

What will happen to a state or a nation that embraces abortion in the same way that the ancients sought to gain blessings from the god Molech? Are we, too, destined for ruin – in Massachusetts and as a nation?

Or will we turn back from the abyss and rise again?
