A friend of mine sent me along these two pictures today.
When I saw the vandalism on the second sign below, it reminded me of my own experiences with the pro-abort thugs during my election campaign last September.
While elections signs are usually the target of vandals, the vandalism is directed at ideologies and not actual persons. In the case of my signs, it was not merely a matter of simply trashing them. On the contrary, in addition to spray painting and defacing the baby, one particular sign was subject to knifing. They knifed a picture of an innocent human baby.
As I stood there inspecting the sign, I just started to weep. What future, I wondered does this society have when it not only refuses to care for children but openly advocates for their destruction? We cannot be that far off from open infanticide. That kind of gives you an idea of where we are going.
Here is the note that my friend attached to the pictures:
You may recall this beautiful banner we brought to this past March for Life on Parliament Hill . Our parish had purchased the banner with the intention of installing it on the front lawn of the Church after the March.
Last week-end our parish pro-life committee finally got around to installing the banner on the front lawn .Hard to believe, but it took only 3 days for the sign to be vandalized. The elderly man’s face was spray painted black, horns were drawn on the baby’s head and his eye was burnt!
Such an innocent photo and message, but what a violent and hateful response! I think the reaction is indicative of our culture ‘s view of life. Keep up the good fight!
