I owe a tip of the hat to Rebecca Hamilton for this video — she rightly titled her post this morning: Video Tribute to 40 Years of Abortion on Demand: Watch Once, Shower Twice
Caveat Viewer: She means it.
And so do I. To Biltrix’s regular readers, if some suspicious feeling is telling you “I really should not watch this video,” please, Don’t.
And you wonder why the tides are turning?
I get accused, sometimes, of trying to push the “Don’t worry, everything is going to be okay, look on the bright side” point of view. If that were true then I’d be defeating my own purpose by grossing people out with sick pictures and videos, discouraging statistics, and depressing real life stories (not all of the time, but some of the time), only to follow by saying, “Cheer up, folks! Things can only get better.”
For those who get that idea, you’ve been missing my point (which is okay, because that was the only point Biltrix ever tried to make — people generally miss the point.).
I don’t need to make the point that our culture is sick. Our culture does a very good job of pointing that out on it’s own.
Yet more than half the people who live in this country are keen to the fact that something is wrong with our society, with the state of politics, with the entertainment industry, even with the state of humanity — that, indeed, is a good sign. It would be far worse if we all missed the obvious.
Then again, as humans, we are prone to missing the obvious. Ignorance, apathy, and decadence can make us blind to the reality that surrounds us, but those are not the only causes of cultural blindness. Discouragement can make cataracts grow on our eyes too. From time to time, it is healthy for us to lift up our eyes and see the good signs around us — for our own good.
“I tell you, look up,” says our good Lord, “and see the fields ripe for the harvest.”
Tides are turning NOW, because people, young and old, perceive the enemy at the gates. We need to see this part of our cultural reality too.
So stay tuned…
And stay strong!
