The massacre of a small city, every year.

walk for life sf 2015“Newspapers are always happy to cover bad news—as the old saying has it, ‘If it bleeds, it leads.’  Stories of kindness and heroism are not considered news in the same way as are stories of atrocity and disaster—and massacre.  Consider the coverage given to the slaughter in Paris of late associated with the Charlie Hebdo magazine.  Consider the slaughter of innocents in Syria at the hands of ISIS.  Consider the massacre of children at the hands of Boko Haram in Nigeria.  All of these receive coverage from our western media, and accordingly arouse moral indignation and demands that something be done to make the massacres cease—and rightly so.  Newspapers can be counted upon to cover a massacre.

“Except, of course, when the massacre involves the unborn.”

  1. We Baptists here in Oklahoma City bring the voice of the unborn on Feb4th by bringing roses to our state reps, senator, lt. gov and gov at the House Chamber at our State Capitol.

    We must express our belief in the sanctity of HUMAN LIFE


  2. So many Christians — for over 40 years now — continue to call out about this atrocity, but it seems our voices fall on deafness. Some swath of the society simply doesn’t care, worldwide. Think of how many 40 year old surgeons, 30 year old mothers, 20 year old college students, 10 year old bright-eyed children we are missing throughout our population. People complain that we need better politicians, more police, more doctors, more volunteers. We need them, but they were murdered before they could ever contribute.


  3. Thanks for posting about this. There is way too much injustice in the world, and it saddens me. I think of Ecclesiastes 4:1, “I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.” May God bless all those who speak up for the oppressed and the innocent victims who have no voice.
