Nothing Left to Say

A snip-
Having sown the wind of abortion we now reap the whirlwind. This appears in every quarter of our culture and on every day. And that just from the first of the “sacraments of death” of our secular human culture. The toleration of sexual perversions among inverts, widespread contraception, easy access to “no fault” divorce, the killing of the elderly, radical feminism, embryonic stem cell research — all of these things defile and debase our human nature and our human destiny. Should we cry out with the prophet “To the mountains, ‘Cover us,’ and to the hills, ‘Fall on us’” (Hosea: 10:8), lest other peoples see and, God forbid, imitate us?

...These unholy sacraments of our secular culture are the seeds of the destruction of our nation. Think for yourself: what nation that kills its young, perverts marriage, prevents new life, and destroys the family, kills those deemed useless, makes the war of the sexes into a real war, and manipulates the genetic basis of human nature, can long endure?
Go read the whole thing. The author: Bishop Thomas Doran of Rockford, Illinois.

More in the no-fault divorce category than the euthanasia category, I imagine.

Still, I have to agree with ++Doran- they are all of a piece when it comes to how we have a corrupt view of human nature.

So glad to see that there are still RC bishops who take seriously the primary charism of the bishop (i.e., to teach), and who have the brains and the huevos to do it.
