How can a civilized society allow such malicious behavior to take place with no repercussions for decades? How could our government officials repeatedly turn a blind eye to Gosnell's "House of Horrors"?
It is apparent that a political agenda needed to be protected. Exposing the horrors that were taking place in the clinic could adversely affect that political agenda. Thus, evil was given a free pass to continue.
Where is the outrage? Have we become so calloused that we are no longer surprised by any outrageous behavior? Why have the babies killed after birth in this clinic received no public tears and outpouring of grief? Why has the murder of these children been treated differently by the media than the children killed in school shootings. Why is this killing condoned?
This is the burning question in my heart and mind. Where is the Church in all of this? If people of faith don't stand up for those who are unable to stand up for themselves, who will? Has a timid Church allowed society to go astray so gravely?
I realize that the Church can't cure all of the societal ills that confront us. As a matter of fact, there are times when we struggle to even cure the ills within our own ranks. However, with that being said, how can we stand idly by and allow things like Gosnell's House of Horrors to exist without resistance? Where are the people of faith while these types of things are going on in our communities?
It is with a heavy heart that I ponder our wandering far from God. We have been killing unborn children for 40 years now. In this particular case our society has also allowed the killing of children after they are born. This clearly reveals that we are steeped in a culture of death--and it doesn't even seem to bother a significant portion of our population.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, it is time for some serious prayer and fasting. Complacency, apathy, and indifference can no longer be the mode of operation. It is time for us to truly be the light of the world and the salt of the earth. "God chose us in Christ before the world began to be holy and blameless in his sight." Let's live like we believe that!
"Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth."
