In a past post, I addressed the issue of devoutness; concluded that religious fervor must dwell in the Goldilocks Zone; i.e., be neither too “cold” nor too “hot”. After all, the former temperature extreme might cause parishioners to perish from moral hypothermia; the latter, could easily imperil entire nations with impending, theocratic overthrow; in particular, of late, the fate now awaiting my own homeland?
Hmm, might America be spared seeing how, THANK GOD, we were founded, in part, on Freedom of / from Religion and the Separation of Church and State?
Alas, in spite of such state ratified, Constitutional principles having endured for nearly two-and-one-half centuries, when it comes down to the squinty, myopic eyes of the intolerant, the jury is still out.
This being a Sunday, what better time to discuss the future of America, which is being threatened, in part, by six ultraconservative U.S. Supreme Court justices (three of them Trumpers). Just one of their onerous, odious decrees recently wound up overturning Roe v. Wade; in essence, rendering abortion illegal.
Be mindful that, in order to discuss this complex issue intelligently, we will need to set aside our own personal views, re that surgical procedure, itself.
The actual crux is how that sextet of simpletons, handed down from the mount, their haphazardly chiseled, “Clay Tablet’s Eleventh Commandment“, which is already messing up / mucking up the lives of multiple-millions; unleashing devastating, societal upheaval; inflicting personal and financial hardship that’ll be felt today and for untold generations to come.
All owing to a half dozen, inconsiderate, out of touch with reality justices, who cannot even begin to fathom how the phrases “problem pregnancy” and “personal tragedy” are inexorably linked.
Case in point, the plight of the raped, traumatized, ten-year-young child, who recently had to flee from her home state of Ohio to Indiana to end her forced pregnancy; to begin taking her first baby steps down the long road to emotional recovery.
Tho that should be the end to this sad story, regrettably, the sorrows have only just begun…
Her abortion has whipped up the Stateside, Iranian magnitude, zero-tolerance zealots into such a frothing at the mouth furor, that these “pro-lifers” are now calling for the conviction, imprisonment and/or execution of the abortionist, the child’s parents and even the child herself.
Were this theological firestorm ANY WORSE THAN IT ALREADY IS, the “less intolerant” factions might… JUST MIGHT… relent JUST A TAD… were the child victim to do WHAT?
Consent to marrying and living with her rapist till death do they part?
Folks, I sure as HELL hope that immediately above sentence is hyperbole. For if that’s not the case…
HEAVEN HELP US ALL!
