to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
Why Ever Do We Allow It?
Once again, Americans by the tens and hundreds of millions have joyously
celebrated our national day of freedom and independence - #233, if you're
counting. Perhaps no one has ever thrilled to the red, white and blue,
and all that it stands for, more than I. Each year, though, I am
increasingly struck by how very much (wittingly or unwittingly) we must
ignore, in order to continue celebrating as we do. Aware of the controversy
over the issues involved, I apologize deeply, even as I dare to mention
as examples just two most glaring realities.
First: abortion. Just since last year's July 4th celebration,
this nation has "legally" sanctioned the brutal murders of another one
million-plus unwanted babies in the womb. Can we even conceive the
massive number.....and can the all-holy Creator ever forgive us?!
A second reality, equally bloody, is U.S. instigated, U.S. sponsored
war abroad - "to spread democracy and freedom around the world," they'll
tell you. Don't buy it! Shameful, unConstitutional U.S. imperialism
is what it is! Show me any clause in the constitutional job description
for U.S. President that authorizes him to meddle in and manage foreign
governments. And if you think "9-11" gives honest justification,
I have at least a dozen video documentaries to the contrary that you can
have - for free.
No, it's way past time to THINK and take a stand, America! Some
friends and I are trying to. For a start, we made and distributed
hundreds of small "Protect and Celebrate Life" cards to parade-goers in
Grangeville last Saturday, and by God's grace, we will continue.
Please become an active protector of Life, for without LIFE, what else
can possibly matter?
