Quo Vadis: He Is Out of His Mind! The March for Life and Being Christian in a Neo-Pagan Age Comments

This was the largest March I have ever seen. Its sheer magnitude astounded and reignited my aging passion for the work. However, even more than the size, what inspired me the most was the age of the participants. I could not believe how young all of these people were as I looked around and passed by them. Oh, I know I am getting older, but I am not that old! This great human rights movement is now clearly a Youth movement. Continue Reading

    It is a matter of confirming life is important at every stage of life. Deny life in any stage of existence and life becomes expendable at anytime during ones existence. The womb is sacred space,the point of the conception of life and the time of development,until the individual becomes a baby at birth. Of coarse they are dependent at these stages. Actually from the time we are all born until the time we die,everyone is dependent on everyone else for every need that we all have. By necessity we are our brothers keeper. Because we are dependent upon each other all of our lives,does that negate the significance of our very existence? I say it can not,as it only serves to enhance the meaning of our existence,as we exist not only for ourselves but for each other. Our gift of life is a spiritual gift to each other and in so serving the needs of one another we serve God,as God is the author of life,love,and sacrifice. In the womb all must be served and mothered into existence. This is the first service we receive from one another as we all need to be born so that we can all live. To deny this stage,it is as if to say that we do not need to breathe to live. Our first breath is essential,as is every breath until the day we die. So every stage of existence is important from conception until physical death. Love was necessary at conception and it is a constant throughout life no matter how the fortunes of life affects us all. We are all fathered and mothered into life. The child is a special gift unique and lovely,to be nurtured. How beautiful this concept is but it is not politically correct? How deaf and dumb are those who would ignore those marching for the right to life. How hard is this deliberately ignorant human heart. This heart has become the heart of government today? The right to choose is the right to be ignorant,to ignore life as significant unless we find it in some primitive or extinctive form,such as on the planet Mars? The press is hard pressed to be a spokesman for our society when it refuses to report on the march for life,particularly when it is evident that so many Americans do care about the right to life from conception to a natural death. No country is safe from the ignorance of abusive governments that would force abortion to be the law of humankind. The so called freedom to abort is slavery,slavery to sin and death. This culture of death will force assisted suicide and euthanasia. Eugenics will also eventually dictate policies of life and death,as it was genecide that was attempted on the Jewish people and the American Indian. The degradation of our nation is dependent on abortion and that is why it is such an important single issue these days. Commonplace abortion will do more to destroy the concept of freedom for all people than any other issue.

    I hadn't been in over ten years and it was an indescribable experience. I came home physically and spiritually re-charged and as ready to go to work on this effort as I was over 30 years ago when i first got involved. One of my greatest blessings is having my ten year old grandson who would probably been aborted had my daughter not grown up in our pro-life family. Please, don't let any of us get discouraged...every life saved counts for eternity. Just because we may not live to see the final victory doesn't mean it won't come in God's own time.

    The truth is often met with violent opposition and ridiculed, until the minority of those who have more of it than others eventually becomes the majority. Cult-ure matters. The major problem I have with democracies is that it is a fact that truth often (perhaps, usually) separates itself from the crowd; therefore, during certain periods the majority is usually wrong; yet, how to reconcile this with the other fact that in a democracy majority rules on many levels? The solution is to have the majority enlightened so that the disciples end up putting the so-called 'guru' out of work because they graduated themselves. Also, shorten the timelines and repeat them to downlines and future downlines so that the same mistakes don't get repeated over and over again. A proper understanding of free will is also necessary. (along with many other realities) It is useless studying his-story unless the lessons to be learned are learned and followed more consistently. Memorizing dates and facts, if disconnected from the deeper layers of truth, risks resulting in a walking dictionary with no heart, spirit, soul, mind, and a body that is essentially a walking living dead-man of sorts. Your articles, Deacon Keith, are inspiring and admirable and don't listen to those who tell you otherwise. Why? You are right about many realities. Our ancestors were so brilliant over the past century, that 2 world wars were created. God didn't do that. Humans did. One of your many talents, Deacon Keith, is being a writer. I hope you never stop until you drop! (but I hope you don't drop for a few more decades, because the world needs people like you)

    Thank you for writing this beautiful article. I love the quote of Chesterton's poem. "Domine, quo vadis" goes straight to the heart. There is very little in the news about the march. I don't understand why. There is so much complaining about Obama and the politicians. Let everyone see how "We the People" really think.

    It waits to be seen as to how much of this will turn to substance, in terms of life. March a day to see the next day in business as usual, forgetting the day until the next year to see the crime has increased, this has been & is the story
