Remember Uncle Tom's Cabin? Will Alfie and Charlie's Stories Start Another Great War?

Kate the commoner with her little one, slaves
 of a totalitarian regime exercising raw power!
There's a popular story, which may be apocryphal, about Abraham Lincoln meeting Harriet Beecher Stowe, the Connecticut-born writer and abolitionist who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin. Lincoln supposedly greeted her saying, "so you are the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war." Whether or not the story is true, the book did, in fact, influence northern attitudes toward slavery which, at least in part, contributed to the conflict.

Today we fight another great war, and, once again, slavery plays its part. Alan Keyes, in an eloquent piece on LifeSiteNews writes: 

April 30, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – In the opinion he wrote for the Supreme Court of the United States in the Dred Scott case Chief Justice Taney observed that “the class of persons who had been imported as slaves…, whether they had become free or not…” had “for more than a century been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race either in social or political relations, and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect, and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit [emphasis mine].”
Such was the attitude Justice Taney ascribed to “the state of public opinion … which prevailed in the civilized and enlightened portions of the world” in the 18th century. I imagine that the British medical practitioners, Judges, and bureaucrats responsible for the extermination of Alfie Evans would profess to find that attitude both uncivilized and unenlightened in comparison with their own far more progressive 21st Century views.

But their actions loudly proclaim their profession to be false.

Like the people who enslaved my ancestors in the United States, they assumed a false godlike prerogative of power. They acted as if the infant Alfie and his parents had no rights their totalitarian socialist regime is bound to respect so that he could be starved to death for his benefit, what they said was in his "best interest." [Read the rest here.]
Yes, indeed, we are at war! A war against the forces of evil that usurp from God Himself the power over life and death. The new slaves in this great war are ordinary people, English commoners like Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans and their families. We ignore their story at our peril. 

Make your voice heard at least to the Liverpool postal service. Cards of condolence can be sent to Alfie's family at:
