It’s sort of like ‘winter is coming, allergy season has arrived.’ In other words, be prepared.
The more time passes, the more we can appreciate the timelessness of that historic event.
Ever since he’s been pope, Francis has talked about this problem often and called for specific action. His sense of urgency is clear.
We have devolved.
He’s done it again. Comforted the afflicted and afflicted the comfortable.
But then again, that award has lost some luster in the modern era.
The media didn’t catch Francis’s latest. They’re too busy recycling their first round of misreporting on him.
The horrors revealed in the trial of notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell shook even pro-choice citizens and it won’t be the same again for the abortion movement. Which is probably why a bill to ban late term abortion made it to a floor vote in the House of Representatives this week, and the rhetoric about it got so dramatic.
It hasn’t yet been a week since he was elected, but the man announced as Cardinal Bergoglio/Pope Francis who first appeared to the world on the loggia of St. Peter’s and stood stiff and straight and speechless for what seemed a long time took only a few minutes to throw the world off balance.
