Our Brave New World . . .

There is a faction of ‘experts’ who would prefer that at the birth of your baby, you should not immediately pin a gender into their profile of life. The doctor should announce, “You have a healthy baby!” I guess when you change your baby later on you should ignore the obvious.

Now, it seems a title for babies is being pronounced. People are having ‘theybys’. What joy to announce to the world that you have just delivered into the world a child missing a gender assignment even though God, had, in fact,
provided physical proof.

I prefer the olden days when the grandfather stated definitely that he wanted a grandson and called the new baby a boy for his dynasty. I was thrilled when after having had a BOY, I delivered a baby girl and happily informed the grandmother that she now had a granddaughter.

Yes, there seem to be problems with identity for some people and they can deal with the issue in a way that works for them. I don’t think, however, that a minority should dictate to the majority what they can or should title their infant. As to a child figuring out life for him or herself. . . Look around the world today. Many of the college students haven’t figured themselves out yet or faced the realities of the world with sense and sensibility. Why would anyone think that an infant to toddler-aged baby would be at a point in life to make life changing decision.

The Church in a Handbasket . . .

I just heard the founding of stream.org  being interviewed on The Dennis Prager Show this afternoon and what he was factually sharing is certainly going to impact the Church as we know it if something or someone doesn’t challenge the Vatican/Pope soon.

Anyway, very interesting read and, looking back since the pope came into office, there were a lot of clues that things might not be all right.

The Cost of Profit

The world has never been a perfect place but, sometimes, the evil methods for making money can be really twisted and very sad. This article appeared today and reveals that the delight of a chocolate bar for our children might mean slavery and worse for some other children.
