Here is a man who espouses all the so-called 'virtues' of what is the culture of death...that it is immoral to bring a down syndrome child into this world. This man believes that this child should be destroyed while still clinging to it's mother, in her womb. Heaven help us.
Only weeks beforehand, on the feast of Our Lady's birthday, this man, after a whole lifetime of giving, of loving, of sacrificing for those he loved and for those who came into his life, he makes the ultimate sacrifice in giving his life for his beloved, youngest child...a young man with down syndrome.
Tell me, tell me, which of these two examples, move the heart to tears as only love can?
I believe Pope John Paul II told us why in Evangelium Vitae:
And tell me, which convicts the mind and will, that speaks to our common sense?
Dale Ahlquist talks of one such Apostle of Common Sense (G. K. Chesterton) when quoting from Chesterton's, "Eugenics and Other Evils", and they crystallize what we all know deep down:
Dale Ahlquist finishes quoting Chesterton on eugenics with this:
So what triggered the appalling rant from the man who supports the culture of death?
Sarah Palin who is John McCain's running mate in the States...a mother of five, whose youngest, Trig, only 4 months old who is down syndrome and who Sarah has referred to as "absolutely perfect".
It irks this man that Sarah found out in her pregnancy that Trig was down syndrome and did nothing about it.
This same woman who is rattling the liberals in the US from one coast to the other, who could be the biggest threat to this culture of death in the future...why? Because she not only talks the talk..she walks the walk..her own life is a testimony to that.
Thank God there are still millions who ARE a testimony to life and love, like Thomas Vander Woude and Sarah Palin.
I also have this to say: It will be this same life-giving love that will spread the truth of, and a passion for the culture of life in the great country of America, because those who espouse the culture of death, walk the walk too..into the valley of death and leave no human legacy behind them, or if they do, probably unlikely to leave them with fruitful, lasting generations.
