Our nation’s ‘blindness’
To the Editor:
A couple of weeks ago we observed the tragic anniversary of the legalization of abortion (Roe v. Wade) in our nation. Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, “If abortion is wrong, nothing is wrong!” With that said, millions of unborn babies have been slaughtered in their mother’s womb, pulled apart and thrown away like trash. We continue, as a culture, to fight for the protection of animal life, but protect not the babies. Is our nation blind or just plain sick?
Once we decided to adopt “choice” over life, look how much darkness has enveloped the world, our nation, our state, our communities and yes – our home, because death was chosen over life and the devil over God!
Why is our nation so blind? Even a toddler or a small child, when shown a picture of a tiny fetus, would understand what the picture shows – a baby! It’s somewhat blind, tragic and plainly ironic, really, that our elected officials and our government cannot!
Why does it seem like there is a “dark cloud” hovering over our land? It’s plain and clear, we run into trouble in life when we do what we want, when we want, how we want and why we want, instead of what God wants! That is exactly what is happening to our country today. Our country is learning the hard way – and is still learning it. When we don’t trust God, we run into serious trouble and failure as well.
Let us pray, that men and women of every age and people of every part of our country, will wake up and become fully aware of what’s really going on. Otherwise, “We the People” of this once great nation are on a slippery slope to “damnation!”
