A Real Tragedy.

In a real life horror story brought to our screen and news services on Easter Sunday, we were told of the murder of two innocent children (all that is known is that they were below the age of 10) by a male within the household and known to them.   What horror on a day that  should be one of glory.

And Yet…More and more we are hearing of innocence brutalised.  Innocence being the scapegoat of societal sins.  Yes sins… We have become afraid to use that word because it’s not “cool” to use the word sin. But sin it is.  Lets call it what it is. It’s violence against God and human life.

When I heard and listened stunned and in horror at that breaking news, I was reminded of the very recent murder of young Luke Batty in front of his mother and friends (by his father) of a little girl called Darcy Freeman (4 yrs old) tossed over a bridge (father) to her death, of the 3 Farquaharson children 10,7 and 2 yrs old (father) and other names written in our inglorious history.  Why? Why? Why so much violence against the most innocent and trusting and loving? Why?
Have we become so desensitised that it has become possible not to feel?  That the first answer to a difficulty is murder of innocence?

And I have to say …yes.

We have created a society where innocence is murdered legally…abortion.
We are heading towards a society where innocence (sick, elderly, incapacitated can be murdered legally ..euthanasia..Belgium legalised euthanasia of children Feb 14th, 2014).  We have slowly created a society that speaks of murder using sanitised language and then we wonder why atrocities happen.
Abortion up to full term is violence and murder and death  against a child and legal.

Euthanasia is violence against another child or adult and is making inroads and in places legal.

Why are we scandalised and horrified when a sense of rage is played visibly in our society as was the murder of the above mentioned children.  Only because these events have been brought to our screens and in our vision by the media and so we can see the horrors. Abortion and its brutalisation of the child serenely growing in its supposed safe place is hidden by the media.  This same media which will make much about these child murders will not bring to vision a dismembered child.  This apparently will disturb viewers and bring into question the “rightness” and “efficacy” and “right” which is abortion.  Will bring into question the lie told that what is growing in the womb is not a child but some unrecognizable bunch or clump of genetic product.

We have a violent society.  We have assisted this society to become violent because we have okayed violence beginning with the youngest to the eldest and those (like Hitler) not quite right.  We have said that only those of a certain size can be recognized and so the media brings to us to view on screen horrors which they deem newsworthy and not others which are deemed as “rights.”

Indeed we have a violent society, one which we have created with our demands, laws, visuals, games and above all loss of God, inner peace, and knowledge of right and wrong.  We are reaping what we have sown.
