Explaining Away Murder . . .

Definition of the day:
Genocide
gen-o-cide (pronunciation)
The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group, political group, cultural group. The definition of genocide is specific targeting of people of any national, ethnic, racial, or religious group for purposes of extermination.
Well, you might think to yourself, that certainly doesn’t happen with any frequency these days, right? Doing a little research will, however, point out that there are many such attacks on various groups of people happening in our modern, enlightened era.
In fact, Iceland just proudly informed the world of their particular genocide this week and many people on some news channels almost sounded congratulatory. In case you haven’t heard, Iceland is nearly 100% ‘free’ of Downs children in their country. Did they come up with some genetic cure for this? Perhaps, a prenatal diet that will give each and every unborn baby nutrients that would prevent this? No, Iceland is proud of the fact that they are having a genocide on Downs babies in the womb by way of abortion.
This is the stuff of horrific science fiction stories where everyone has to be the same and perfect in order to maintain some status of the empire.
You have to wonder how living, breathing Downs people feel about this to realize that in a civilized country in the world, their ‘kind’ are being targeted. How many Christians are there in Iceland who seem to find it easy to separate religious values from state laws with the sacrifice of the unborn.
The world is busy these days changing out good for evil and celebrating the evil. I read once that every time a child is born, God smiles as would any of us when presenting someone a gift. How would you feel having a gift you bestowed on someone being spurned?

Abortion is Homicide and Suicide.

“The day that people lose their horror for abortion will be the most terrible day for humanity. Abortion is not only a homicide but also a suicide. Shouldn’t we have the courage to manifest our faith before those who commit two crimes within one act?

“The suicide of the human race will be understood by those who will see the earth populated by the elderly and depopulated of children: burnt as a desert,” Padre Pio replied.

More female babies are aborted than male babies. So, it would lead one to believe that you really can’t be pro-women if you are not pro-motherhood. AND, you can’t be pro-women if you are not pro-life. Another thought: Only in non-Christian cultures does gender-specific abortions still happen.

The Result of the Women’s March on Washington . . .

Margaret Thatcher once wisely said, “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher had it right, the more you claim, the less you probably are. The recent march of the ‘pussyhat’ protesters seemed to confirm that. Carrying signs with disgusting slogans and demeaning anyone that disagreed with them doesn’t leave one with a feeling of any real accomplishment. A peaceful discussion, common sense, and a sense of fair play might promote conversation but how can one do so with the yelling and shoving that goes on once you are perceived as a ‘non-believer’?

The event was promoted as a way for ALL women to come together and voice their needs, desires, wants, etc., as citizens of the United States. Unfortunately, their cause lost some ‘moral’ traction when they only allowed their agenda to be heard and disrespected the women who advocated pro-life. Seems to me that the pro-life women were fighting for the future women the other marchers were fighting so hard to have aborted.

Pre-Election Observation.

Deep sigh listening to the readings at Mass this morning. It was on Maccabees relating to the widow and her sons that had rather face a tortured death than eat pork which was against their religion. Father explained that in today’s world, we would wonder about how important eating or not eating pork would really be. Father said it was their Jewish faith of long standing and the rules and laws of their religion meant something important to them. To break any of the laws, even that of eating pork would be like a ‘death’ to their soul. Guess with the past two elections, a lot of Catholics took their political party a lot more seriously than possibly following all the dictates of our religion. Praying that in this historical election coming up, they think twice on their vote and leave Hillary in the dust and vote for the party that has more concern for the unborn. The last two elections got obama into office with over 50% of the Catholic vote. Should be interesting on Election Day to find out how many Catholics decided to eat the ‘pork’ again this time around and leave some laws of their faith in the dust.
