William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition appeared on The Dove TV’s “Focus Today” program last week, where he declared that “we still sacrifice babies to Moloch today” through legal abortion.
Murray and host Perry Atkinson were discussing the fact that many people are, according to them, only nominal Christians who do not live and vote according to “proper” Christian values, which Murray noted was not necessarily a new problem.
“There was a period in Israel after King David,” he explained, “where making sacrifices of infants and burying them at your doorstep in order to bring good financial luck to the family was an acceptable thing to do. I mean, there were actually some people worshiping Moloch. Just because society is doing it or society is approving it doesn’t make it right.”
“By the way,” he continued, “we still sacrifice babies to Moloch today for the financial good of the family. We call it family planning and say, ‘Well, if we abort this baby, the family will be better financially so it’s okay.’ It really is the same thing as the sacrifices that were done to Moloch several thousand years ago.”
