To The Daily Sun,
In response to L.J. Siden's letter of Jan. 20, as to the nature of liberals' lack of concern for human life, it is a true fact that particularly those who drive the liberal agenda demonstrate a lack of concern for human life in its earliest stages of development. This is true to the point that you can't even have an intelligent conversation with some over the the sanctity of the human life of a fetus. Their determination to protect their self-will over and against the welfare of the fetus precludes it. The matter is a lack of recognizing that this life is a gift from God, no matter how it was conceived. It is thus a rebellion against God, an act of not receiving his gift. So when God's agenda differs from yours, you snuff out the life, throw away the gift.
Now all liberals are not like this. Indeed some are pro-life, some are even Christians. But of those who drive the liberal agenda I think this can be said to be true of enough to make the generalization. It is this lack of honor and respect for God and the life that only he can give that concerns me. If you don't respect life at its earliest stages when it is helpless, it stands to reason that these pursuing their own self will, will not respect human life at its latter stages when it is again helpless. A panel of thusly minded people unanswerable to anyone does not sound good to me.
Here's the thing. People are like sheep. We need someone to follow. It's the way we are. Christians know this, but praise be to God we have a Good Shepherd. Many liberals and even conservatives who do not know the Lord exalt reason and their own ability, well, beyond reason, and become "useful idiots." I mean no offense. Particularly to those who participate in this forum, most are very intelligent. Yet if you do not realize that you need a shepherd you will end up serving someone who in the end you will wish you hadn't.
Mr. Siden is very wrong in ascribing my motive as stirring up hate and fear. In this he violates his own injunction not to draw unsubstantiated conclusions. My only desire is to encourage people as much as it is in our power, not to throw away our liberty for a security that in the end will turn out to be a false security. And that all would turn to Christ.
