Moral societies protect the defenseless
Re July 16 letter, “‘Bizarre’ to use massacre in Charleston to argue against legal abortion,” by Barbara Lefke.
Lefke criticized a letter to the editor by Robert Lyncheski that contrasted legal abortion in our society with the murder of innocent church-goers in Charleston.
Never miss a local story.
While we should pray for our grieving brothers and sisters of Emanuel A.M.E. Church over this tragedy, does it make the murder of innocent, defenseless unborn human beings less evil?
This is not a critique of Lefke, per se, because that's her opinion, but rather is a question of truth and justice as a dividing line with evil.
Any moral society will attempt to protect and care for all of its innocent and defenseless- male or female, young or old, born or unborn - since God alone is both Creator and Judge of all human thoughts and actions.
If a society is to survive, then the will of the people, not 5 or 6 lawyers, must decide where the dividing line between truth and justice and evil lies. When a few can usurp the people's will in order to allow murder of the innocent and defenseless to become a legal industry where Planned Parenthood operates under the pretense of protecting women while killing millions and selling their body cells and parts, then it becomes no different than the S.S. in Nazi Germany who murdered millions of innocent children simply because they were considered undesirable.
I believe Lyncheski is a good Christian who simply states that we the people look at ourselves and see where we as a society are heading and then determine where the dividing line between truth and evil is to be drawn. God is the final arbiter of all human actions.
As St. Paul wrote in Romans 2: 11 - “For God shows no partiality.”
Jesus says in Matthew 18:10,14- “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I tell you that in Heaven their angels always behold the face of my Father who is in Heaven. So it is not the will of my Father who is in Heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”
