Tragic Truths Admitted

One can scarcely believe the admission of Democratic State Representative John Rogers, who will go down in infamy for admitting the following concerning babies killed by abortion. But, as i wrote yesterday, it is good that things are now coming out in the full light of day:

Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later…You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, and you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later.


Here are President Trump’s comments in response:

This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion…Every Democrat running for President needs to be asked where they stand on this. The extreme turn we’ve seen from Dems on abortion recently is truly sickening

I don’t think we need add anything, except to say that no child is ‘unwanted and unloved’. God wants and loves the baby. And, as Mother Teresa cried out in near-desperation, if you don’t want the baby, I do. And with the saint of Calcutta, we might add any number of couples waiting for adoption.

For a glimpse into the sad state of the modern university – if we might still use that term for once-noble centres of truth – peruse the acerbic commentary by Rex Murphy on the recent admissions scandal. Universities and colleges are filled with students like the sad Olivia Jade Giannulli – whose mother, Lori Loughlin of 1980’s mind-numbing ‘Full House’ fame, spent half-a-million faking her admission, so she may get a seat in the academic halls of the University of Southern California – admitting that she was only there for the parties and the social life, and may or may not attend class. As Mr. Murphy quotes Ms. Jades’ own words from her YouTube channel:

But I do want the experience of game days, partying—I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know.

The Olivia Jades provide the financial fodder to keep the whole meretricious Ponzi scheme going. Then there are the academically serious – a far smaller number – but whose intentions are to make a career, connections and whole lot of cash. Few, few there are who are there on a search for the truth, a quixotic quest, for such can no longer be found on the big campuses, mired in ideology and ‘consensus’ and blowing in the wind of political correctness.

But all is not lost. One may still seek the truth in smaller, out-of-the-way places, insignificant in the world’s eyes, but not in God’s, for is that not where he often chooses to ‘hide’? For those who desire the truth, it still may be found, like that pearl of great price. His ways are not ours, and the ‘wisdom of man’ – now on full tragic display – is folly with God.
