Return of morality will heal our country



I want to congratulate Terry Crock for an insightful letter to the editor, Counterattack on The Passion of the Christ (March 11, 2004.)

Mr. Crock told it like it was. I wish I had written that letter.

He pointed out how it was politically incorrect for Christians to promote Christianity, particularly if they wish to eliminate immorality in public life.

Critics attack The Passion of the Christ as being unnecessarily violent where they condone the national sin of abortion.

The Freedom of Access to Clinical Entrances (FACE) law facilitates the shameful spread of abortion in America.

It is also a blatant violation of the First Amendment’s guarantee of peaceable assembly and freedom of speech of the pro-life people who try to persuade expectant mothers to save their babies and not submit to the abortion clinics.

Abortion is murder. It is child abuse in its cruelest form.

The Sixth Commandment says plainly, “Thou shalt not kill.”

Moses wrote about the sanctity of life in the mother’s womb in Exodus when he decreed a life for a life as punishment for harming a pregnant woman.

These unborn babies are torn limb from limb. There are no obituaries, no funerals, no mourners.

An estimated 111 babies are murdered every hour by legal abortions in the clinics, protected by the Freedom of Access to Clinical Entrances law.

Abortion is a part of the immorality of our country. It will be stopped only when morality returns. Morality will not return unless people change. Will they change?

Mr. Crock concludes his letter with the observation that Jesus is as politically incorrect today as he was 2,000 years ago. It’s something to think about.
