Abortion Gang member fails Theology/Logic 101

KushielsMoon, a self-identified Christian and member of the Abortion Gang blog, attempts to argue that the Catholic Bishops don't trust God. Here's her reasoning:
The Catholic Bishop’s position on denying women access to birth control shows that they don’t trust God.

If you’re a Christian, you believe that God is all powerful. He is capable of anything, and He can change our world however He wants to. If the Bishops truly believed this, why would they be so worried about birth control?

.......

If a woman does become pregnant, despite using birth control, the choice of whether or not to carry the pregnancy is then between her and her God — and again, we must trust that the all powerful, all loving God will lead her on the path that He has planned for her, having brought her to this point.

Knowing that God is all powerful, and His will can’t be stopped by using birth control pills, I have to wonder why the Bishops are so worried about including access to birth control. Do they not trust God? Do they not believe He is powerful enough to overcome birth control if He wants to? Do they believe God’s Will can so easily be avoided just by swallowing a daily pill?

......

If the Bishops believe in the power of God, they should allow women access to contraceptives, because God’s will is stronger than anything on Earth. However, if they do not believe in God’s power- if they cannot trust God to do what is right, then perhaps they should continue taking this issue into their own hands.
I'm guessing KushielsMoon hasn't thought about this position for an extended period of time because if she did then she would quickly realize that if her reasoning held, it would mean that anyone who favors any legislation doesn't trust God. For example:

"If you’re a Christian, you believe that God is all powerful. He is capable of anything, and He can change our world however He wants to. If Christian women who belong to mothers against drunk driving truly believed this, why would they be so worried about drunk driving?"

Or.......

"Knowing that God is all powerful, and His will can’t be stopped by abortion protesters, I have to wonder why Christian pro-choicers are so worried about allowing abortion protesters to block abortion clinic entrances. Do they not trust God? Do they not believe He is powerful enough to allow women to have abortions if He wants to? Do they believe God’s Will can so easily be avoided by people just standing in the way of women who want abortions?

If the Christian pro-choicers believe in the power of God, they should allow anti-abortion protesters to block entrances to abortion clinics, because God’s will is stronger than anything on Earth. However, if they do not believe in God’s power- if they cannot trust God to do what is right, then perhaps they should continue taking this issue into their own hands."

  1. Excellent post. If she truly believed in God, she wouldn't presume to play God by deciding who lives and who dies.
