Can I be blunt? I don’t understand why some pro-lifers are surprised with election results that have established child-killing as a protected right in Ohio. Look around you! The West has been engaged in a decades-long suicide pact which is quickly reaching its apex. From ubiquitous contraception, abortion, low marriage rates, fatherless homes, and having very few children — to inviting countless migrants (and invaders) whose culture and religion cannot be appropriately integrated, including many who literally HATE us, while having twice as many kids as us — we’ve been setting the stage for our own demise. Not only have we allowed Marxists, nihilists, and Islamists to infiltrate every one of our institutions, we’ve invited and celebrated this as something positive. Yay, diversity!! Not only have we rejected organized religion, we’ve even rejected that nebulous spirituality so many used to pride themselves on embracing. We are now gods unto ourselves, and our socially-constructed identities (those related to victimhood being the most appealing) are EVERYTHING. We’re a culture that spends more time staring at screens than other humans, being primed 24/7 by establishment propagandists to be fearful, confused, dependent, obedient, self-hating, and only attentive to and distracted by ‘the latest thing’ designated by government, corporate, and 3-letter agencies. We’ve tossed truth and reason out the window (that’s what happens when you abandon the foundations of Western civilization), while letting our emotional reactions to anything and everything be the determinant of decision-making, behaviour, and our reality. “I may be a man, but I feel like a woman, so call me Caitlyn and honour me with Woman of the Year dammit.” Where we used to work in soup kitchens, or volunteer in hospitals and homes for the aged, or take the old lady up the street to church, we now post slogans on social media supporting ‘the latest thing’ and feel warmly and fuzzily virtuous upon doing so. We give drug addicts better drugs (in a safe environment of course); we give abortions to pregnant women abandoned by their partners; we offer legal suicide to the sick, lonely, and mentally-ill; we give institutionalized daycare to parents who long to raise their own kids; we provide endless porn to those seeking love; and we teach deadly political theories to those thirsting for God. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. Our present mode of existence is just not sustainable. We’ve turned our backs on most of the things that give human life meaning and purpose, such as faith, family, human connections, community building, service to others, commitment, learning, adventure, as well as sacrifice, permitting an apathetic stupor to lull us into digital slavery at the hands of demonic, misanthropic globalists. I know, I know, I’m painting a very dark picture but I need to get this out of my system. I don’t care if anyone even reads this screed; it’s been therapeutic for me to write. Most of you know or at least feel, that something BIG is coming our way. Life changing. Transformative. Purifying. But I fear there will also be loads of suffering. There can actually be joy in the suffering that’s coming, or there can be nothing but torment. That’s up to us. Jesus sanctified suffering, knowing we also need to experience it in order to grow in faith, love, wisdom, and holiness. When we embrace our personal crosses out of love for Him, trusting them as necessary for our salvation, we find the JOY. When a woman is giving birth, the intense pain she endures during labour vanishes abruptly when her child has emerged from her body, and it’s replaced by an intense sense of happiness and an indescribable love. Getting this blessed world to rights and getting ourselves and others to that eternal, blissful home we were made for, will necessitate intense labour pains. I fear we’re close to our due date. Of course we need to keep doing the pro-life work, the organizing, the educating, the politicking — but more than ANYTHING else we’ve got to somehow find ways to radically transform the spirit of the age, the culture. We’ve got to get ourselves out of this death spiral that’s turning us into zombies. Seriously, we are presently surrounded by the living-dead. Sometimes I feel like I’m one of them, especially since the Covid tyrants tried to shred our humanity. The only way I can think of accomplishing this necessary transformation at our present juncture is by becoming saints; surrendering our lives to God, being prepared to suffer in love, and even being ready to give up our lives if necessary. By dedicating the rest of our earthly existence to getting ourselves and others to Heaven, the better and more meaningful life on earth will become for everyone. God knows we can’t go on like this. Our loving Father will certainly intervene — hopefully sooner than later — so let’s rigorously prepare to embrace His remedies, renew the face of this world, and go on to spend eternity with Jesus and each other.
