I have never been so struck in my conscience on the subject of abortion as when I saw this. I refuse to even link to the article - it is so sickening, so horrifically callous that I had to fight back a strong urge to jump out of bed and vomit. I am not kidding.
Wherever one stands on the issue, be they Christian or not, there is no need for this kind of thing. It is insulting to women, it is insulting to the dignity of human life, and honestly, it is making me very concerned about the future. It is heinous.
After I heard about the nightmarish shooting in Connecticut, I found the video above. I posted it on Facebook for all to see and comment on and ponder - not one "like", not one comment - maybe there can be no comments on these words.
But I don't understand. I am failing to understand the wretchedness of the modern world. I do not understand why a young man would want to go in to a school and shoot innocent children. I don't understand why a man in China went and stabbed over 20 children for no reason. And to top that off with making Christmas ornaments depicting crucified fetuses, I am almost speechless. I seriously cannot understand what's going on, why people think this kind of thing is humorous. Perhaps everything truly has become a joke to modern society.
Forgive me for the dark post - but when I saw the "abornaments", this just all came tumbling out. What can we do? What are we called to do?
The time, I think, is coming, where we can no longer hide our heads in the sand. I am speaking more to myself here, as one individual Catholic Christian. We have to be lights of love, we have to proclaim the light of Christ in our actions, in our words, even in total silence. We have to.
Tell me, readers, what should we do? I am nauseated.
