40 Years In The Desert

On May 14, 1969, Omnibus Bill C-150, the legislation decriminalizing contraception, abortion, and homosexuality, passed as law in Canadian Parliament (Votes: 149-55).  For the next 40 years, the moral and social fibre of our country has been steadily eroded as millions of unborn children have been mercilessly slaughtered in their mothers’ wombs. 

While our politicians and judges either mouth platitudes of opposition, or work actively to ensure this deadly sacrifice continues year after year and decade after decade, the cry of the innocents goes unheard.  It’s the silent scream that we would rather not hear.  Natural justice is denied to the most defenseless human being in the most dangerous place to be in Canada: a mother’s womb.

The country’s Catholic bishops have also played their part in this tragedy.  On September 27, 2008, they too will mark a 40th anniversary of sorts.  That’s the day when our spiritual fathers published the Winnipeg Statement, the most destructive Catholic document ever written in the English language.  It provided the foothold for the culture of death and abortion in Canada, and ironically came from the one institution that is supposed to uphold the sanctity of the family. 

Every societal indicator of a healthy society has shown that Canada is a social disaster zone.  Abortion rates continue to skyrocket, as does family breakdown, drug abuse, violence, addiction to pornography, and every sort of social malady imaginable.

And while Canada continues to disintegrate, the media pundits and the politicians promote foolish and idiotic solutions to the nation’s problems while willfully ignoring the real reason why Canada is destroying itself. 

Without a genuine respect for human life and the natural family, and the concomitant reflection of that respect in law, the Canadian social fabric, like an unborn child’s flesh during an abortion, will continue to tear and bleed until there is nothing left. It is a fallacy to believe a nation can willfully and legally destroy its own children without also destroying itself. 

Do we not have eyes to see what is happening to Canada today?  Are we so blinded by our decadence and selfishness that we will let ourselves descend into the basest depravity before we are thoroughly destroyed as a country; where even now our basic civil rights are being threatened by foreign ideologies and religions because we refuse to rear our own children and pass down our traditions?

Canada has become a barren desert of murderous self-indulgence.  We’ve been on a suicide trip for the past 40 years, but we all know that it cannot go on indefinitely.  Legislated murder which is approved by a spineless political class and supported by a complicit marshmallow population can only go on so long before some serious and rather irreversable consequences happen.

Is it too late?  Perhaps.  But May 14, 2009 may be a new beginning for this country.  40 years in the desert can come to an end — or at least the beginning of the end — if we really want to enter the promised land.

Pray for it. Sacrifice for it. Work for it.

  1. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

    You shall have no other gods before me.

    You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

    Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and maidservant may rest, as you do. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.

    Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

    You shall not murder.

    You shall not commit adultery.

    You shall not steal.

    You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

    You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbour’s house or land, his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

    “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live,” Deuteronomy 30:19.

    God’s commandments, though we find them hard to follow most of the time, are there for our own good. Whether or not we want to admit it, without the absolute law of God, we will…and are…bringing ourselves to ruin.
    It’s frustrating to have so many people in this country say they believe one thing, but then behave as if they believe something completely different. Most people in the church say they believe abortion is murder, but do they act like it? Not in the least. Can you imagine the how the church would react if people started dismembering born children in our hospitals and clinics? Perhaps the biggest problem then is not those outside the church, but those inside. Why should the outside believe something that we, who are supposed to be the salt and light of the earth, obviously don’t really believe? Well, judgment will begin with the household of God. We will all be looking into the faces of the lives that were lost on account of our complacency and laziness.
