These two incidents occurred in England, which is probably just a little further down the moral decline than are we. However, the United States isn't that far behind.
A woman had a baby out of wedlock. She gave birth at home and immediately strangled the poor baby girl. Rather than jail the woman for murder, the judge lets loose with a bunch of psychobabble, literally excusing the murder of a defenseless baby. I remember when Roe v Wade occurred. Pro-lifers were mocked by pro-aborts when we voiced apprehension about infanticide. Our fears have come to pass and the pro-baby murder people could not care less.
Elsewhere a gay teenager asked a Christian preacher what he believed about homosexuality. For the high crime and misdemeanor of giving an honest response to a question, he was arrested on charge of a hate crime. Fortunately the judge threw out the case; it was an obvious example of entrapment.
I cite these to demonstrate that on the one hand a woman who admitted to murdering her own newborn is let go, while a Christian who preaches the truth is jailed for so doing. This is happening in England; it could soon happen here. Had Clinton won in November, I think we'd be racing towards that state of affairs. We dodged a bullet in November and were granted a little bit more time to turn things around. While there are good signs from Washington, the bulk of the work in that regards will be the responsibility of each and every one of us. Ora et labora.
