If any Christians still need convincing that fruitful apple trees and grain fields and dairy herds and women's wombs are God's blessings, and that He denies these blessings to those who defy His authority, this from today's Wall Street Journal concerning the growing crisis of sterility within the pro-baby-killing, pro-sodomy, pro-euthanasia, pro-sex education Democrat crowd. From which I take this priceless quote:
Maybe the scales are tipping to the neoconservative, homogenous right in our culture simply because they tend not to give much of a damn for the ramifications of wanton breeding and environmental destruction and pious sanctimony, whereas those on the left actually seem to give a whit for the health of the planet and the dire effects of overpopulation.
Reminds me of a cartoon in the latest New Yorker that hit my funny bone earlier today. The picture is of two modern-day prophets picketing the streets of New York City, one older man with wild hair and a long flowing beard and the other a middle-aged woman who appears frazzled and maybe neurotic. The title above the cartoon is "Turf War on West 49th Street." The man's sign says, "The end is near for religious reasons" and the woman's, "The end is near for ecological reasons."
Adding to the inanity all around us, I say "Make love, not war." Glad I got that off my chest.
