“Christian” NewsWire Attributes Montana Plane Crash to Abortion

First, here are the details of Sunday’s tragic events from some reputable sources:

Kim Murphy, Maura Dolan, and David Kelly in the Los Angeles Times:

Reporting from St. Helena, Calif., Redlands and Butte, Mont. — The plane that suddenly nose-dived into a cemetery in Montana this weekend killed three young California families bound for a ski vacation, including two sisters, their husbands and their five children.

Federal investigators, sifting through the charred wreckage Monday, warned that the cause may not be known for many months, but were looking into whether the plane was carrying too much weight or was disabled by icing or mechanical problems.

Basically, the people killed in the crash were two sisters and their families, and the son of the man who was going to put everyone up at his house, that son’s wife, and their children.

The two sisters, Vanessa Pullen and Amy Jacobson, were the daughters of Irving “Bud” Feldkamp III.  Feldkamp was attending the family vacation, too — but he drove to the resort, and so was not on the plane that crashed.

All of the adult victims who were members of Feldkamp’s family were doctors — as is Feldkamp himself:

he victims were identified as Erin and Amy Jacobson of St. Helena, Calif., and their children, 4-year-old Taylor; 3-year-old Ava, and 1-year-old Jude; Michael and Vanessa Pullen of Lodi, Calif., and their children, 9-year-old Sydney and 7-year-old Christopher; and Brent and Kristen Ching of Durham, Calif., and their children, 5-year-old Heiley and 3-year-old Caleb.

Vanessa Pullen and Amy Jacobsen were Feldkamp’s daughters, and were also listed as shareholders of the plane’s registered owner, Eagle Cap Leasing of Enterprise, Ore.

All the adults had attended Pacific Union College and graduate schools at Loma Linda University, in Southern California, studying in fields like nursing, dentistry and medicine.

Investigators don’t yet know — and probably won’t for a long time — what caused the crash. Most likely it was a combination of factors. The plane was carrying 14 people but was only licensed to carry 10 — although mitigating that is the fact that half of that number were very young children. Experts are also looking at the possibility of ice buildup on the wings, and the Associated Press reports that an autopsy is underway to determine if the pilot might have had a medical emergency.

The crash occurred after the pilot diverted the plane to Butte from the planned destination of Bozeman. The plane crashed into a cemetery, which I’m fairly sure even the most jaded skeptic would agree is eerie, even though “eerie” can stand on its own and does not really need to be explained by reference to sinister connections between that particular crash site and the details of the victims’ and/or the surviving family members’ lives.

Some people, though, for twisted reasons known only to them — or not — need to explain tragedy via a crime and punishment model. Such people cling to a belief in an authoritarian God who shares the rigidly moralistic and judgmental qualities that enables them  to make sense of life’s randomness and cope with it day by day.

And that brings us to sad, lost souls like Gingi Edmonds:

Some of you may have seen the major news story of the private plane that crashed into a Montana cemetery, killing 7 children and 7 adults.

But what the news sources fail to mention is that the Catholic Holy Cross Cemetery owned by Resurrection Cemetery Association in Butte – contains a memorial for local residents to pray the rosary, at the ‘Tomb of the Unborn’. This memorial, located a short distance west of the church, was erected as a dedication to all babies who have died because of abortion.

What else is the mainstream news not telling you? The family who died in the crash near the location of the abortion victim’s memorial, is the family of Irving ‘Bud’ Feldkamp, owner of the largest for-profit abortion chain in the nation.

Family Planning Associates was purchased four years ago by Irving Moore “Bud” Feldkamp III, owner of Allcare and Hospitality Dental Associates and CEO of Glen Helen Raceway Park in San Bernardino. The 17 California Family Planning clinics perform more abortions in the state than any other abortion provider – Planned Parenthood included – and they perform abortions through the first five months of pregnancy.

Although Feldkamp is not an abortionist, he reaps profits of blood money from the tens of thousands of babies that are killed through abortions performed every year at the clinics he owns. His business in the abortion industry was what enabled him to afford the private plane that was carrying his family to their week-long vacation at The Yellowstone Club, a millionaires-only ski resort.

The plane went down on Sunday, killing two of Feldkamp’s daughters, two sons-in-law and five grandchildren along with the pilot and four family friends. The plane, a single-engine turboprop flown by Bud Summerfield of Highland, crashed into the Catholic cemetery and burst into flames, only 500 ft. from its landing destination. All aboard were killed.

The cause of the crash is a mystery. The pilot, who was a former military flier who logged over 2,000 miles, gave no indication to air traffic controllers that the aircraft was experiencing difficulty when he asked to divert to an airport in Butte. Witnesses report that the plane suddenly nosedived toward the ground with no apparent signs of a struggle. There was neither a cockpit voice recorder nor a flight data recorder onboard, and no radar clues into the planes final moments because the Butte airport is not equipped with a radar facility. Some speculate that the crash was due to ice on the wings, but this particular plane model has been tested for icy weather and experts have stated that ice being the cause is unlikely.

In my time working for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, I helped organize and conduct a weekly campaign where youth activists stood outside of Feldkamp’s mini-mansion in Redlands holding fetal development signs and raising community awareness regarding Feldkamp’s dealings in child murder for profit. Every Thursday afternoon we called upon Bud and his wife Pam to repent, seek God’s blessing and separate themselves from the practice of child killing.

We warned him, for his children’s sake, to wash his hands of the innocent blood he assisted in spilling because, as Scripture warns, if “you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you”. (Ezekiel 35:6)

A news source states that Bud Feldkamp visited the site of the crash with his wife and their two surviving children on Monday. As they stood near the twisted and charred debris talking with investigators, light snow fell on the tarps that covered the remains of their children.

I don’t want to turn this tragic event into some creepy spiritual ‘I told you so’ moment, but I think of the time spent outside of Feldkamp’s – Pam Feldkamp laughing at the fetal development signs, Bud Feldkamp trying not to make eye contact as he got into his car with a small child in tow – and I think of the haunting words, ‘Think of your children.’ I wonder if those words were haunting Feldkamp as well as he stood in the snow among the remains of loved ones, just feet from the ‘Tomb of the Unborn’?

I only hope and pray that in the face of this tragedy, Feldkamp recognizes his need for repentance and reformation. I pray that God will use this unfortunate catastrophe to soften the hearts of Bud and Pam and that they will draw close to the Lord and wash their hands of the blood of thousands of innocent children, each as precious and irreplaceable as their own.

I think that Gingi Edmonds could use our prayers, too. Don’t you think?

    You may not like Gingi Edmonds because you feel that her motives are less than altruistic, but Gingi Edmonds is not the issue.

    The issue is the very odd coincidence that the children and grandchildren of abortion facilities would die w/in a few feet of a memorial to aborted unborn babies.

    Feldcamp’s life is full of dead babies. Everywhere he looks is death and destruction.

  2. Chief says:

    David,

    The “issue” is that Gingi Edmonds had already made up her mind.

    Abortions happen to be legal and I would hope rare, but legal none the less.

    No matter where the plane had crashed, I’m sure that you would find it an “odd coincidence.”

    There was a reason for the diversion from Bozeman to the closer Butte. My heart goes out to the families of those folks that perished in that accident.

    Oh, wait, wait, wait! Now I get it! I don’t know why I didn’t understand this before, it’s so obvious! God was angry at Feldkamp because of dead babies — so he made seven babies die in a plane crash!

  4. Carlos says:

    I get it! If it is legal then God must obey our rules not the other way around.

  5. tas says:

    Oh wait, I get it! Carlos is a stupid fucktard! Get the fuck outta here!

    No, seriously. Get the fuck out.

  6. Nikki says:

    If killing babies is so wrong then why does God do it? I guess Sunday school was wrong about following in His foot steps…

    I think it’s pretty fricken sick to objectify living human beings as tools of “punishment” meted out by an angry God. How can anyone have peace under a God that thinks it’s OK to kill a bunch of kids in a fireball due to actions by some other guy? If I have an uncle who sins should I be concerned that God will kill my pre-schoolers over it?

    Asinine. This kind of shit is why people are turning away from the church. Making God look like a hypocritical douche is a pretty hateful way to attract followers, and will only attract followers full of hate.

  7. terry says:

    The way some people can get from point A – a horrible tragedy where whole families were lost – to point B – God did it because the grandfather owned a family planning clinic is unreal and offensive.

    My prayers go out to Mr. Feldkamp and his family.

    Gingi Edmonds is on her own.

  8. Mike says:

    read the torah, there is such a thing as a generational curse (as far down as seven generations) look into eastern philosophies, especially Karma, most cultures around the world have an understanding of this, you reap what you sow, what goes around, comes around. This is not just a Christian teaching.

  9. tas says:

    Ah yes! Now it’s ALL religions which blame abortion! Somebody alert the mainstream media, there’s a consensus of looniness!

  10. Kathleen Beasom says:

    Most people I know are not saying that it is God who caused the plan crash at the site of the Memorial to Unknown Babies. It is quite like, as the pilot’s belief system is revealed, that he purposely nose-dived into that Memorial site to draw attention to abortion. I believe it was a suicide mission on his part, and I’ve heard many others speculating about that, too.

  11. Lindsey K. says:

    Gingi Edmonds is nuts. I had to file a police report against her for harrassment (seriously!). Try not to pay to much attention to this poor child’s mornoic ramblings. If you’d like to see her making even more of an idiot of herself (hard to believe it’s possible, right?) click the link below. Oh Gingi; you are a wench indeed.

  12. Kathy says:

    “you reap what you sow”

    You mean, all those other people over there reap what you sow, right? Mr. Feldkamp’s grandchildren reap what he sows. (This is assuming Feldkamp did anything wrong by owning a family planning clinic, which of course he did not — and of course we don’t even know that he DID own a family planning clinic, lol).

    I’m not going to spend any significant time telling you that “you reap what you sow” has a much broader meaning than your narrow, literalistic sense of it as meaning “God will make your family die in a plane crash.” Your way of thinking is much more akin to our ancient ancestors who thought cyclical or random events in nature were connected to God’s favor or disfavor, and engaged in elaborate ritual sacrifices to propitiate the deity.

    And since you claim to be a torah reader, I am surprised that you seem not to know how nuanced Jewish tradition is on the issue of abortion. It isn’t even directly mentioned in the Torah, and it’s not even a settled issue as to whether it’s Torah or rabbinic tradition that governs abortion. The one place in the Torah that is generally taken by Jewish authorities as guidance on the issue of abortion is Exodus 21:22, which states that if a pregnant woman miscarries as the result of a fight between men, but there is no other injury (i.e., the woman herself is not harmed), the woman’s husband can exact a monetary payment from the perpetrators. This has been taken by the rabbis as an indication that the Torah places a higher value on the woman’s life than on the unborn child’s. There is no one official Jewish position on abortion (there is no one official Jewish position on *anything,* which is one of the reasons I so love Judaism). In general, Jewish law is clear that life is a fundamental value, and that almost nothing is more important than saving life. Jewish tradition does not condone abortion for frivolous reasons, but neither is it rigid or narrow on how to define a woman’s life, or on what constitutes “frivolous” or “compelling” reasons for seeking an abortion. There is support in Jewish tradition for the inclusion of mental health as well as serious physical medical issues that aren’t necessarily a matter of life or death.

    Here are some quoted snips from aish.com’s article on abortion in Jewish law. Aish.com, as you will immediately see by looking at the ads, is not a liberal or left-leaning site AT ALL. Here are the snips (bolds are mine):

    As abortion resurfaces as a political issue in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, it is worthwhile to investigate the Jewish approach to the issue. The traditional Jewish view of abortion does not fit conveniently into any of the major “camps” in the current American abortion debate. We neither ban abortion completely, nor do we allow indiscriminate abortion “on demand.” [...]

    The easiest way to conceptualize a fetus in halacha is to imagine it as a full-fledged human being — but not quite.2 In most circumstances, the fetus is treated like any other “person.” Generally, one may not deliberately harm a fetus. But while it would seem obvious that Judaism holds accountable one who purposefully causes a woman to miscarry, sanctions are even placed upon one who strikes a pregnant woman causing an unintentional miscarriage.3 That is not to say that all rabbinical authorities consider abortion to be murder. The fact that the Torah requires a monetary payment for causing a miscarriage is interpreted by some Rabbis to indicate that abortion is not a capital crime4 and by others as merely indicating that one is not executed for performing an abortion, even though it is a type of murder.5 There is even disagreement regarding whether the prohibition of abortion is Biblical or Rabbinic. Nevertheless, it is universally agreed that the fetus will become a full-fledged human being and there must be a very compelling reason to allow for abortion.
    [...]
    As a general rule, abortion in Judaism is permitted only if there is a direct threat to the life of the mother by carrying the fetus to term or through the act of childbirth. In such a circumstance, the baby is considered tantamount to a rodef, a pursuer6 after the mother with the intent to kill her.
    [...]
    Judaism recognizes psychiatric as well as physical factors in evaluating the potential threat that the fetus poses to the mother. However, the danger posed by the fetus (whether physical or emotional) must be both probable and substantial to justify abortion.9 The degree of mental illness that must be present to justify termination of a pregnancy has been widely debated by rabbinic scholars,10 without a clear consensus of opinionregarding the exact criteria for permitting abortion in such instances.11 Nevertheless, all agree that were a pregnancy to causes a woman to become truly suicidal, there would be grounds for abortion.12 However, several modern rabbinical experts ruled that since pregnancy-induced and post-partum depressions are treatable, abortion is not warranted.13
    [...]
    While most poskim forbid abortion for “defective” fetuses, Rabbi Eliezar Yehuda Waldenberg is a notable exception. Rabbi Waldenberg allows first trimester abortion of a fetus that would be born with a deformity that would cause it to suffer, and termination of a fetus with a lethal fetal defect such as Tay Sachs up to the seventh month of gestation.14 The rabbinic experts also discuss the permissibility of abortion for mothers with German measles and babies with prenatal confirmed Down syndrome.
    [...]
    There is a difference of opinion regarding abortion for adultery or in other cases of impregnation from a relationship with someone Biblically forbidden. In cases of rape and incest, a key issue would be the emotional toll exacted from the mother in carrying the fetus to term. In cases of rape, Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Aurbach allows the woman to use methods which prevent pregnancy after intercourse.15 The same analysis used in other cases of emotional harm might be applied here. Cases of adultery interject additional considerations into the debate, with rulings ranging from prohibition to it being a mitzvah to abort.16

    One does not have to agree with any or all of these nuances to appreciate the underlying assumption that abortion under Jewish law is a complicated issue with no clear or absolute guidelines in either Torah or rabbinic tradition. There is certainly NO support in Jewish tradition for the present-day extreme, black and white, fundamentalist view about abortion that is expressed in Gingi Edmonds’ lurid verbiage about “the blood of thousands of innocent children” or “profits of blood money” or “child murder for profit” or “the practice of child killing” in referring to a man who owns (maybe, supposedly) a chain of family planning clinics in which abortions are performed.

  13. Callie says:

    Just to clarify – I live in Butte, Montana and this so called “Tomb of the Unborn” does not exist. There is no such memorial in Holy Cross Cemetery, nor any other cemetery in Butte. This is a fabrication.

  14. Marie says:

    God forbid, had anything similar happened to Bill Gates or Madonna or any other wealthy magnate, politician or celebrity, the press would have been quick to report the misfortune differently. “Richest man in the world, helped orphans in Africa, adopted children from third world countries, gave millions to charity etc…etc…etc…

    In this case the press was very careful to omit from their reporting that this magnate had 17 abortion clinics. Did the press smell something bad? Did the press know that this was a morally wrong business to be in? Did the press think that the public should be kept in the dark regarding this universal ongoing, very controversial issue, namely abortion? What was the press trying to hide from the public? Truth withheld is truth denied.

    Had the press reported the truth as it happened, Gingi Edmonds would not have had to write her article. She was directly involved in defense of the unborn. She was only letting the public know the truth. Many admire her courage in telling the truth. Please do not vilify her.

    May God have mercy on all of us including the people who perished on that plane. We pray that the Feldkamp’s, Bud and his wife Pam and all those involved in the destruction of life will see the light. I understand that this is not the first time a little one was very tragically lost to the Feldkamp family. Perhaps, they could not see that it was a wake-up call.

    As for the press, your job is to report honestly and accurately events as they happen…When? Where? Who? What? Why and How?

    There is nothing greater that cry out to heaven than the blood of innocents. We humans, all have a right to live and let live.

      October 16, 2012 at 7:49 pm“A fertilized egg doesn’t have arms or legs that I’m used to sieneg on humans. It doesn’t have organs like eyes or a brain that are things I attribute to humans. The point is that there are definitely remarkable differences between developed humans and a fertilized egg, yet these differences make no difference in calling the fertilized egg a human. So why is a fertilized egg a human?”I’m tempted to nitpick here. I’ll just say, as mentioned above, the arms and legs have less to do with it, but there are certain organs and nerve types that I do feel come to play in the morality of life rights. Jeremy’s point here is, nevertheless clear. Why, despite the remarkable differences would a fertilized egg be called a person?Jeremy says: October 17, 2012 at 3:35 am Dave has offered some candidate definitions:“Most people agree that what makes us human is our ability to reason and to have complex emotions. This sets us above other life forms as we can learn and grow on our journey.”“Self-awareness, free moral agency, speech and symbolic cognition, conscience and the imagination”’I just want to point out that these – as stated in the earlier post where this comes from – came from people who wrote about it on the web. They are not meant to reflect my own opinion, but to give some sort of models from which we might built our own definition of “person-hood.”Jeremy says: October 17, 2012 at 3:35 am“If a line is to be drawn, it ought to be drawn conservatively, that is on the early side.”I have mixed feelings (yes, Jeremy, this is morality chirping up here) about this, but I’ll agree grudgingly that the right to life is important enough to “err on the part of caution,” even when held against the freedoms of a fully developed person (in this case a woman.)Jeremy says: October 17, 2012 at 3:35 am“I reject viability as a coherent criteria for determining person-hood. It is not the ability to breath which makes us human.”I must agree with this as well. We are not insects or reptiles that allow their young to go off and thrive or die without any help from us. Even healthy newborns cannot survive without intervention/help from better developed humans.Jeremy says: October 17, 2012 at 3:35 am“Also a morality based on technology seems fragile. What if new incubators come out that make it viable for a 4 month old fetus to live outside the womb?”On this I completely disagree. Even the briefest glimpse at history shows that technology impacts human/cultural morality and moral definitions. Let me know if you’d like an example or two. The fact that technology continues to change develop! does not make it a *fragile* basis of morality. It only means that our morality must be reexamined from time to time as our abilities change and grow. We do this anyway. The supreme court, for example must change laws as the times change. Some of our moral definitions, for better or worse, have become moving targets as technological developments change what we can understand and morally or immorally do. This does not make it fragile! It makes it variable and adaptive!Jeremy says: October 17, 2012 at 3:35 am“I submit that the earliest onset of human thought in the fetus should be the criteria. This actually happens after the 24th week so the time framing of Roe vs. Wade should hold in order to draw the line conservatively.”I’m willing to be even more conservative! I’d be willing to base it on the ability of the fetus to perceive what would be done to it. Naturally, I don’t mean the existentialist idea that it is being removed or anything that conceptual. I mean, the ability to feel pain at the process of abortion. This requires nerve endings and a brain of some minimal development (full development is not required, of course) that can process the information the nerves would send. If we are making the fetus suffer pain, then we are doing morally questionable. I don’t require thought beyond that. I would like to believe that we can at least agree that causing pain to others – regardless of where they stand in development – is a basic and fundamental moral matter. I would consider an organism that can suffer pain at the procedure worthy of protection.third and last will be more response including final answers

    Callie, thank you! I was intuitively almost certain that was the case — but I live in New Jersey so it’s a bit harder for me to know for sure. I’m so glad you wrote this.

  16. Kathy says:

    In this case the press was very careful to omit from their reporting that this magnate had 17 abortion clinics.

    Next, we find out that Feldkamp did not own any clinics where abortions were performed, and in fact had no professional connection to abortion at all.

  17. TomF says:

    I’m not in Butte, but it doesn’t take much effort to type “butte montana cemeteries” and do a Google search and come up with the cemetery located next to the Butte airport. You can even do the “Street View” thing and move along Harrison Avenue and see the grave markers from the road. Try following this link:

    http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=UTF-8&sourceid=ie7&ie=UTF-8&q=butte+montana+cemeteries&fb=1&split=1&gl=us&cid=1869030331980211406&li=lmd&z=14&t=m

    It is possible that the cemetery is known by more than one name, and maybe the Holy Cross name is not familiar to an earlier poster who wrote that there is no such cemetery in Butte. It is also possible that the poster means the cemetery is not within the Butte city limits.

    I’d also say it is pretty likely that the Knights of Columbus have a monument to the aborted in Holy Cross Cemetery. Here is part of a resolution adopted at the 98th Montana convention

    “…resolved: that each subordinate council be encouraged to support Pro-Life programs in their communities by … providing appropriate maintenance of the Tomb of the Unborn memorials, and other activities promoting Pro-Life in a nonviolent manner.”

  18. TomF says:

    Just shows I should read posts more closely. The poster didn’t say there is no Holy Cross Cemetery in Butte, only that there is no “Tomb of the Unborn” in the cemetery. My mistake.

  20. Bara M. says:

    In response to Callie’s statement saying that there is no monument stone
    dedicated to the unborn at Holy Cross Cemetery is FALSE.
    Yes, there is a monument stone there and it is to the right of the Masoleum.
    It is on the south side on the Masoleum lawn. I live in Butte and I have prayed there.
    I must say that most don’t even know it is there.

    This plane crash was tragic to say the least. I am a Roman Catholic and it is not
    for anyone to judge why this crash might have happened. Bud Feldkamp’s family was wiped out and all the deceased and family members will remain in my prayers and my heartfelt
    condolences go out to this family.

    Butte, Montana

    And my respect for you, Bara, is immense. Thank you.

    Tomb of the Unborn”. This memorial, located a short distance west of

    the church,

    I live in Butte Mt and there is no Tomb of the Unborn nor is there a church within 5 or miles. This is a false statement.

  23. Campion says:

    David, Carlos, Mike:

    Good luck, but it’s practically impossible to lead people out of the dark in some places because, these days, there is almost a 50-50 chance that the person you’re speaking with has either had an abortion or been involved in someone else’s decision to have one. And as anyone knows who has been near it, abortion changes you. One of the ways it changes you is that it makes your conscience run away to safe hidden places where it can’t hear anybody insinuating that you murdered another person (even if, as is usually the case, you got tricked or forced into it and thought you had no other choice), and it drags your reason, intellect and civility away with it, replacing them with scorn, sarcasm, sophistry, denial, rationalization or abuse — anything to drown out the awful truth.

  24. Kathy says:

    And as we all know, if you believe that fetuses are children and abortion is murder, it makes perfect sense to believe that God punishes the intentional killing of children by intentionally killing children.

    Killing children to prove that killing children is wrong. Works for me, totally.

  25. Emily says:

    I think it’s really sad how easy it is for all of you who don’t know this family to sit around and discuss God’s judgment upon them. I knew this family very personally. Mike and Vanessa Pullen were friends of the family and their Dad Louis and Mom as well as extended family are members of my church and very good family friends. I can tell you that there is not a better, more generous, loving family than theirs. Sydney and Christopher were both very sweet, adorable, christian children. Mike and Vanessa both very down to earth, humble, laid back people, who personally lived modest lifestyles. Their deaths are reaking emotional havoc on the a very wide spectrum of people.

    I personally am very anti-abortion, but you know reading things like this and hearing similar in the news, seeing anti-abortion protestors trying to get their 15 minutes of fame at Funerals, really turns me off to ever wanting to be associated with any anti-abortion organizations.
    There is a time and place for everything and it would seem to me that decent,Christian people would be able to tell the difference. I can’t see our Lord Jesus doing this at all. When tragedy happens His tears flow for those hurt by it.

    If people really were concerned about the cause for abortion, I would think they would be a little more careful about what kind of opportunities they took to promote their cause.

  26. Emily says:

    Oh yes, and not that it really matters but, Vanessa Pullen, daughter of Feldkamp, was a big supporter of Ron Paul, who as far as I know is against abortion and is very pro-life. You can look it up in campaign contributions. Her father in law also has noted her support of Ron Paul in an interview. Why hasn’t anyone noted that?

  27. Maggie says:

    I am sorry for everyones loss. Its very sad indeed. I also live in Montana and I can tell you that this is indeed true. 1. There is Holy Cross Cemetery which is a catholic Cemetery, you can even see the listing of the damaged headstones on the diocessee website because they are having to fix them. 2. There is a memorial to the unborn children..It is a statue of a mother and child. And its for all unborn not just the aborted. 3. True the family was making money due to abortion. Some things might of been hyped up a bit for example I don’t believe where the crash happened they went to see the familymembers under tarps. But I do believe they visited the site. Its a sad loss for the family, and there should be no reason to lie about things to hype it up ..or to cover it up.

      Would it be helpful to set up a file where you store slieds that you use regularly, grouped together like: methodology, certain studies etc., both in English and Hebrew, so that you just need to copy the ones that you need for a new session?

  28. Kathy says:

    Emily,

    My heart goes out to everyone — family, friends, neighbors — who knew this family and loved them. It’s very frustrating to feel such horror for what someone has gone through and not be able to tell them face to face. This is as close as I can come, and I feel grateful that you have added your voice here so that I and anyone else who wants to can tell you how sorry we feel for what happened to so many fine human beings. And even if they hadn’t been fine human beings, they would still be human beings.

    There should be some tragedies that call for compassion and a loving response regardless of what the victims did in life or thought or believed. It doesn’t matter.

    In the Jewish tradition, we say, “May their memory be for a blessing.” I hope you will take some comfort from that, Emily.

  29. Bill says:

    I find it interesting that the victims of the crash were graduates of Seventh-Day Adventist schools and as the daughters of Mr. Fellencamp, one would assume he is also and Adventist. Why would an Adventist own abortion clinics? People invest in various things without realizing what they are. I give my money to an investment firm and all I want to know is – was there a profit last month? Other than that – I have no idea where my investment money is at. So – things happen for a reason, do you think Mr. Fellencamp might be having a “Job” experience by losing his family – that was Satan that took Job’s family, not God, so don’t go blaming God – he did not invent death – it was sin and it is Jesus “the Annointed” or the Christ who has defeated, Satan, sin and death.

    I know one of the daughter-in-laws of Mr. Feldkamp. Her infant son died in a home accident three years ago. How anyone could think that this was a “wake up call” from God is beyond me. It was heartwrenching to watch her suffering; I don’t even want to imagine how this loss is affecting this whole family. God bless them. And God bless those brave people who perform abortions; in the process defending our RIGHT to have them.

    You’re confusing Adventists with Christians, Bill. Washington DC’s largest abortion mill is the Adventist hospital. And for Chief, who thinks abortions are rare: about 1 out of 4 pregnancies end by abortion.

      Really exhausted here. I’ve fialnly gotten all the run, hide, flee! cats into carriers except for Tzeekada. I almost was able to get her into a carrier about 3 hours ago but haven’t been able to get her to come near me since. I’m still hoping to get her and I’m hoping Gingi, Muffin and the 3 babies will cooperate and not do runners when he arrives as I’m out of carriers. Flora and Flossy have both managed to move their carriers all the way down the hallway from the bedroom (we’re talking about 8 feet!) by their frantic thrashing about in them.

    Do you have a source for that statistic, gs?

    I am a Christian, I am an Adventist, and I knew this family very well while I attended college. I am firmly against abortion, but I am spitting mad that other so called “Christians” are using this tragedy to further their agendas against abortion. For people like Gingi Edmunds to write such vitriol against the family at this time is neither productive nor in line with what Christ’s own words in the New Testament say about tragedies. Jesus said that God does not cause suffering and pain! My prayers and support and love go out to the family, for their losses, and I will leave anything else between them and their Creator. As far as I know, Bud Feldkamp is not a practicing Adventist, and he and his son are involved in running the clinics. I don’t agree with it, but I don’t think the hateful rhetoric aimed at them is going to change their minds either. Those that are finding and expressing a grim satisfaction in this horrific event are doing more to harm their cause than to further it.

  34. Rachel H. says:

    I think Gingi Edmonds comments ring some truth. IF abortion is killing a life, and this family is responsible for so many murders, then why wouldn’t God act.

    If abortion isn’t killing a life, then no one should be sad if they have a miscarriage or lose a little child. Sorry, but I’ve seen women cry for weeks over a miscarriage. Methnks it’s a life.

    I’ve heard it said that if God wrote a book you may want to read it. In His book He warns people about being wise in the own eyes. What I have read from the comments above are many people who are wise in their own eyes.

      For most American ‘catholics,’ I suspect many of them still vote Democrat becuase it’s a family tradition. That’s probably all they think of their Faith as anyway, a family tradition, so it poses no problem to them most likely.When the world around you is Christian and your surrounded by authentic Catholicism, it’s nice to be nestled in a Faith that stretches back and is a dearly held family tradition, but in times when the Faith is attacked, it has to become a personal and very zealously-held thing for you, something which trumps all other loyalties or traditions. Us converts know that first-hand, since many of us have had to value Truth over loyalties in converting.

    i suspect that none of us will ever understand what it is like to lose 9 people in a family all at once. The family deserves love and kindness and nothing else at this point. We will not know why or how this happened until God comes again. It’s rather amazing to read some of these posts and see how mean and unchristian some people can be, and also how wonderfully kind and warm people can be.

    Gingi Edmund is probably right.

    God is longsuffering waiting for repentence but he will still judge in righteouness and truth. Believe or not.
