Over the Edge

The local newspaper recently ran a story with the following headline: “Turtle Egg Rescue at Space Center billed Big Success”. My blood pressure immediately rose as I began reading this story. It seems the local wildlife officials were deeply concerned about the effects of the gulf oil spill contaminating these defenseless, precious turtle eggs. Please don’t misunderstand – I am for protecting innocent wildlife and I am not so cold-hearted as to not care about animals being treated properly. But we cannot let things become out of proportion and devoid of common sense. Back to the turtle eggs – these eggs were delivered to safety from the gulf coast to the space center in Florida. They were transported by truck over a three month period. The article, while discussing the possible problems facing these turtles, contained the phrase “humans are also a threat”
A question: how many innocent human beings – human beings with an eternal soul – were executed in their mothers’ wombs as these trucks rumbled down the highway with their precious cargo? Do we see the insanity of what we are doing? We have devolved into a state of denial characterized by the stupidity of calling good evil and evil good. We are killing babies and calling it good and watching those who are trying to stop the killing of babies and calling them bad. We have gone past insanity and entered the theater of barbarism. We consider the environment sacred but human life expendable. We have not only accepted the sick rantings of radical feminism but we have embraced them and now promote them – even among members of the leadership of the Catholic Church.
The Roman barbarians would leave unwanted babies on the hillside to die.
Guess who would secretly save those babies and raise them – the Christians.
In post-Christian America today, the Christians are the ones leaving the babies to die while we pay a high price to save and rescue TURTLES(?)
The murderous legacy of legalized abortion is a staggering number of dead children of Almighty God – over 50 MILLION. And we wonder why God has allowed us to fall into the hands of corrupt, evil leaders?
A billboard at one of our local businesses said it very succinctly – “The best thing to do is to pray and try again.” But we will not pray if we do not believe. And we will not believe if we are not humble. If we do not humble ourselves, God will humble us in His way and His ways are not our ways.
God Bless.
