to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
No. 212 - 5/20/2019
Despite the opening 5-word sentence in the last review here: "Time
for a topic windup!" the topic compels me to add one final thought!
An unchallenged reminder that our founding fathers definitely were Bible
readers and believers, and for the most part, solid Christians in their
beliefs and actions. Therefore, citing the numerous quotations listed here
of those same founders, detailed in review 209, it can safely be said that
our country got its start by founder belief in individual responsibility
based on the Great Commandment: "Love God with whole heart and soul, and
neighbor as oneself." Therefore it follows necessarily that SECULARISM,
ignoring a Creator God's role in our lives, and SOCIALISM, its economic
blood brother, which puts the state in the role of provider for the masses,
and DEMOCRACY, the political arm of the first two have always appeared
together in history, and are closely related today in the effort by many
at the government, education, and press level to achieve one or the other!
Bluntly it is claimed here, that when one of the above is growing in
popularity, it is a sure and logical conclusion that the other two will
be close behind! To put it plainly, an American today who claims to be
any one of the above, a SECULARIST, a SOCIALIST, or an advocate of
a DEMOCRACY in government, rather than a REPUBLIC as defined earlier in
these reviews, will logically be a backer of the other two! And politically,
where would your vote go, if you are a believer in any one of the above,
and thus a backer of all three? Why the modern DEMOCRATIC PARTY of
course! A no brainer! The three are linked together "at the
hip" as the old saying goes, and a believer in one is forced to accept
the other two! And as claimed in the last review here, why would
anyone who has lived and prospered here want to return to the failed "Trinity
of beliefs" mentioned above, especially with Venezuela as a modern example?
Would someone out there help me understand why their popularity?
Enough! Late as is often the case, but a serious tribute needs
be made to Mother's Day, and those mothers who have inspired us over these
years, by fulfilling the role set forth centuries ago in the Bible, "Increase
and multiply!" This is in no way a criticism of those families who have
been unable to have any children, or who have been limited to one or two
because of economic necessity or other valid reasons. But a well
known fact is, that many modern families today often have no time for any
children, and casually resort to control methods, or the more barbaric
methods of abortion, to avoid raising any children at all! The abortion
statistics alone remind us that modern America is overlooking the sad consequences
of 60 million citizens not given the chance to live, grow up, and enjoy
the life offered here, sought so desperately by thousands of immigrants
who seem willing to do anything to come into our country!
So what are the consequences of this modern mentality? And the publicly
stated and officially backed policy of a major political party today?
First, you pick the figure! We are told that 1 in 6 conceived children
since 1973 has been denied life by abortion. And more recently it
has been claimed that the figure might be closer to 1 in 4! Wow!
To understand these figures, next time you are in a crowd, simply count
to six (or four!) over and over, and imagine who would not be here if the
abortion statistics would have been applied to your group! Simply
put, imagine that sixth person as NON-EXISTANT! (Hopefully it is
not you if someone else is doing the counting!)
Another fact overlooked today, or deliberately not discussed,
the impact this will have on the future! Simply put, there will be
60 million younger folks not providing the tax dollars needed to support
families relying on Social Security for help in their old age! And ironically,
is it not true that those who find the funds not there might be the very
ones who refused to contribute to the work force when they had the chance?
(Ouch! I am asking for trouble with these remarks!)
