Marking WWII Anniversary
Sept. 2 marked the 70th anniversary of the first shots fired in World War II when Poland was invaded by German troops. We might have expected that such expressions of man's inhumanity to man ultimately might have conferred upon our societies the wisdom to truly value life and liberty.
Unfortunately, in the years following World War II, after the collapse of Nazism, the West voluntarily succumbed to a new dictatorship of relativism that is no less evil than the fascism that preceded it.
This new tyranny recognizes nothing as being definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of satiating one's own ego and desires.
We have seen the contemporary results ― nihilistic yet impeccably democratic legislation that repudiates life itself.
We must put a halt to this demoralizing slide toward an anti-life state philosophy. We need to re-examine the Godless assumptions that we permit to serve as the foundation of our lives.
Then and only then will we be able to breathe a new and vibrant culture of life back into our society.
