I see I have hit a nerve, judging from the dramatic spike in my blog stats after Monday’s post. And I’m thinking it’s not due to my own post, but the Mary Eberstadt article on the Too Good page. Either everyone thought it as deadly accurate as I did, or they disagreed so much that they just had to pass it along to others. I suppose I’ll never know.
I made the mistake of buying glitter that was on sale for the kids yesterday. The good thing is, Linus simply loves it. The bad news is, Linus simply loves it. What else can I say? I always have the best of intentions when it comes to these sorts of things for the kids. But the problem lies in the disparity between the scenario that plays in my head and the actual reality. When I picked up the glitter from the dollar bin, I was envisioning the two of us carefully and delightedly shaking glitter onto our small reasonably-sized dots of glue, and then thriftily shaking the slight excess neatly back into the containers. As you can imagine, (as you mothers know) the reality is a bit different. As a sidenote: Does anyone know the best way to clean up glitter?
I’m sorry, but am I missing something? Okay, so a doctor is performing an abortion. The goal of an abortion is to stop the heart of a baby that is still in the womb. Does it not seem ridiculous, then, that the abortionist, upon seeing that the baby did not, in fact, die as a result of the procedure, should then immediately begin giving life-sustaining care to this same infant simply because his head has emerged from his mother? Not ridiculous that he should administer life-sustaining care, but that there should be such an instant switch of mindset? And shouldn’t this switch of mindset mean that perhaps it was wrong to be trying to kill the baby in the first place?
In my opinion, if you’re going to be pro-abortion, don’t try to walk the line here. Anyone with a shred of intelligence realizes the quandary of the above scenario. Am I saying that Obama has no intelligence? Perhaps. But I really think the reality is much scarier than just a lack of intelligence. To be so determined to make abortion available to anyone and at any stage and at any cost denotes a lack of morality. It is plain evil. And there, I have said the naughtiest four-letter word of our times.
Of course, to liberals, this idea of good and evil is absurd. Everything is relative, after all. What’s bad for you is good for me, and how dare you be so judgmental? (But, I forget, I guess liberals do think one thing is evil, the US of A.) I fervently hope that Americans will open their eyes to the reality of evil, and cast their votes accordingly.
An excerpt from today’s Too Good article by Jonah Goldberg that I just had to add here:
When asked what America’s greatest moral failing was, theological Obama said it was our collective failure to “abide by that basic precept in (the Book of) Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.”
