On the Darkest Day of the Year, Where is Our Light?
Last night it was reported in Great Britain that U.S. Major General Anthony Cucolo, head of the U.S. troops in Iraq has decided that any male or female soldier who are expecting a baby under his command will face court martial with a possible prison sentence!!!!
Guess what the effect of *that* will be? Yep. Convenient, career saving abortions. Kill your baby, keep your job.
And a little child shall lead them. ~Isaiah 11:6
Increasingly, our society refuses to follow.
On another front, there are more and more voices within the environmentalist community who want to bring China's one child policy here to the west. It's necessary, they say, to combat shrinking natural resources and feed those of us lucky enough to have been born.
To these secularists, the solution is not sharing. No. That would be naive and stupid. The solution is not respecting and cherishing our Judeo-Christian heritage that asks that we feed the poor and take care of those who are more helpless than ourselves. All that Christian stuff is just too oppressive. The obvious solution is to kill the children.
Let's wipe Christmas of its real meaning. That will make everyone equal--everyone happy. Let's take away the baby in the manger so we can go on killing the babies that are conceived today--in the most prosperous century mankind has ever seen.
We are losing our grip as a nation and as a people. We no longer have a moral compass. We are orphans who have run away from the only Parents we ever knew and we think we are free.
