A great priest I know (country priest is his user name) recently went online with his excellent articles about the faith and the culture. I hope you'll visit his website often and "taste and see" the good news he shares. Here's a sample from an article he wrote called The Auschwitz Option about how our culture offers two choices for babies in the womb: be murdered by abortion or be allowed to survive to birth to be wage slaves indebted from the moment of birth:
At Auschwitz, SS officers were given the option of condemning new arrivals to either immediate extermination in the gas chambers or to horrific slave labor under the cynical logo, "Arbeit macht frei". So also, over the past four decades in America, newly-conceived children are have been legally consigned, with the sanction of the Supreme Court, to either death by abortion or to the slavery of paying off the debt of over a hundred trillion dollars in national debt and unfunded mandates. The only difference between the two is that the fate of the helpless in Hitler's Germany was determined by the Nazi SS, while, in the American version of the Auschwitz option, the determination has been made by a new SS, cynically embellished by the pillars of Hecules as "$$" to proclaim that human life has a price, but no objective value.I hope you're intriqued by Father's way of looking at the clulture of death. I think he's right on! So welcome to the blogosphere, Father. I plan to share your wisdom here and send folks over to visit your "country" often where unadulterated Catholicism, the truth, prevails. Thank you for being a good shepherd who is willing to share the hard truth. We are certainly in short supply of those these days.
As an aside, it is interesting to note how blind acceptance of the Auschwitz option has led many in our government to carefully obfuscate some important Constitutional issues. First of all, the stated intention of the Constitution "to preserve the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity", has been eschewed by the demands of short-sighted political and judicial expediency, so as to allow votes to be bought by mortgaging the liberties of future generations. In addition, many of these government leaders are also denying the applicability of the Thirteenth Amendment's prohibition of "involuntary servitude" to children in utero, who, if they survive the option of abortion, are doomed by unbridled deficit spending to perpetual debt slavery.
