We have reached an alarming level of moral imbecility when politicians are more exercised about changing weather patterns than they are infanticide.

CATHOLIC LEAGUE
FOR RELIGIOUS AND CIVIL RIGHTSDemocrats Balk At Condemning Murder
February 5, 2019Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on an abortion survival bill blocked by Senate Democrats:
 
Republican Sen. Joni Ernst said yesterday that the Senate “can no longer unanimously condemn murder.”
 
Ernst was referring to Democrat Sen. Patty Murray’s objection to the Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, legislation that would ensure medical care for an infant who survives an abortion; the bill, introduced by Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, required unanimous consent.
 
Murray did the bidding for her fellow Democrats. “We have laws against infanticide in this country,” she said. We did.
 
When Barack Obama was an Illinois state senator, he pushed hard for legislation that would allow a child who survived an abortion to die unattended by medical staff. Just last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law that allows the child born alive following an abortion to die without any consequences to physicians or the non-physicians who can now perform abortions. Also last week, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam championed a bill that would permit infanticide.
 
Even if Murray believes the laws on infanticide are sufficient, why would she—and the Democrats—want to stop a bill that enhances legislation of great moral weight? If a child born alive does not have a right to life, then human rights are a chimera. Why worry about anti-discrimination laws if we begin by discriminating against children at the time of birth?
 
Murray was chosen to do the bidding of the Senate Democrats because she is a Catholic woman. In 2014, she sported her Catholic bona fides by staying up all night to draw attention to the issue of climate change. But unfortunately for the kids, her Catholic colors did not kick in yesterday. We have reached an alarming level of moral imbecility when politicians are more exercised about changing weather patterns than they are infanticide.

    To continue a thought…

    Perhaps at least part of the destruction, or even the degree of it’s acceleration, is the beginning of a chastisement for the egregious sins mankind has willfuly commited over the last fifty years; and continues to commit at an alarming and accelerating rate, similar to that of the weather’s apparently increasing ferocity?

    It was the weather, specifically the rain that didn’t stop until the world as it was known, along with everthing outside of God’s Ark was destroyed, in order to be renewed.
    A flood preceded by ever-increasing sin, to the point that God saw nothing but evil committed by mankind.

    What is more evil than the wilfull slaughter of innocent pre-born infants?

    The heinous destruction of innocents on a scale that even Herod could not have imagined, might very well bring consequences unimagined by today’s perpetrators.

    “…For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.”

    Perhaps

    There is a direct correlation between societal moral depravity and erratic weather patterns. To put it simply, the earth is revolting against the grave sinfulness of mankind on the whole. Natural law is being turned on it’s head, and we see it in our violent weather patterns.
