Bishop Thomas Doran of the Diocese of Rockford, Ill. has come out and made a strong statement concerning the nature of legalized child killing and its related effects upon our society. It is good to finally see someone with ecclesial authority discuss Biblical matters in an appropriate light, and connect the dots in such a way that it ought to be crystal clear to anyone paying the least bit of attention. Now, the follow up from here, ought to be NAMING NAMES of those who are pro child killing, and to promote those willing to change the laws.
Listed below, is part of Bishop Doran’s letter. Notice the language used, in how strong it is and Bishop Doran makes these statements with a great deal of conviction.
In our devolving and decaying morally relativistic society, there are many people who regard the killing of a pre-born child as of no consequence whatever. What is hidden from the eyes of the unsuspecting, however, is that not only for its victims but also for its perpetrators and for societies that permit it, allow it and license it, it is extremely dangerous.
All of us are aware of the perilous financial condition into which corrupt politicians of both parties have cast our country. Particularly vexing to our congressional overlords are the so-called entitlements: Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and other such things as unemployment compensation and various types of government relief. What we are never told is that the reason these entitlements are becoming unbearable for the taxpaying public is that there are fewer and fewer people contributing funds by way of their taxes to support these needed benefits upon which many people in our society have come to rely. Ours is a rapidly aging population because the number of children born into it becomes smaller and smaller and smaller, relative to the size of our country.
Since a pagan Supreme Court, overriding the Christian conscience of centuries, chose to kill children in 1973, millions of them have been butchered without ever seeing the light of day, even for a moment. Abortion also coarsens our moral discourse and brutalizes our people.
It is said that even Nazi Germany was not quite as callous with regard to nascent infant life as our unelected judges have made our country. Abortion has also contributed to the treatment of women as objects, rather than as subjects, of rights and duties, has made us more callous as regards the commission of lesser crimes and is a bullet aimed at the heart of marriage and family life. It has ruined the trust we used to have in doctors, nurses and the health care business. In short, procured abortion may well be the death knell of our society.
As with other forms of wrongful activity sanctioned or winked at by the government, procured abortion is for the killers and those who support them, immensely profitable. Abortuaries are gold mines for their operators. Killer physicians and surgeons, distaining the Hippocratic Oath, travel hundreds of miles to assassinate a few children, and you may be sure that that kind of doctor or nurse does not work for nothing.
One can see without much effort that Bishop Doran is writing about principles that both the Bible and Catholic Church hold as true, and what happens when these principles are violated. Since there are very few willing to discuss the possibility of our country going down the tubes due to the depravity, it is good that someone with some authority is willing to do this. If the average Christian does not bat an eye at legalized child killing, it is not at all surprising that the same average Christian would not see the Judgment of God coming onto our land as a result of these atrocities. Maybe it is to the average Christian: no crime, no punishment. Unfortunately, there are very ‘high crimes’ and punishment is on its way.
Bishop Doran needs to continue in this vein, but now needs to get from behind the cursed 501 c 3 status and name names. Someone in the American Hierarchy needs to have some gonads and be the first to take on this ‘bought silence’ and preach from the pulpit, and street. The truth needs to be out there, and the Hierarchy needs to put its moral authority behind condemnation of all politicians for legalized child killing, and to back, BY NAME, those willing to see the end of this abomination. We have little time, and God is not neutral about this crime.
