We hear a lot about various endangerations these days, don't we? Intentionally exaggerating to make my point, the furry ground mouse in Iowa, the red-winged sapsucker in New England and the multi-prismed colonial trout in Minnesota are on the endangered list. Concern is broad while a devoted hand full hold the masses at bay at times from proceeding with the routines of living.
Oil and gas exploration are barricaded in the name of preserving pristine landscapes. The ACLU continues to protest crosses and the sacred name of Jesus by threatening to remove both from military cemeteries as well as chapels. The buzz phrase used to freeze man in his progressive tracks is protect and preserve.....rights.
Therefore, I find it ironic and sad that the same sort who can be given to such great causes would not find it in their hearts to protect and preserve the unborn fetus. Unborn babies, to many of these who protest the weakest of causes, evidently are of little regard. Millions of tax payer dollars are being invested in Florida to provide a canal for endangered turtles to make their trek from water to land and back. Yet, protecting and preserving the birth canal of humans is, in their minds, ridiculous and religiously antiquated.
It makes the words of Jesus arise to yet another new understanding. You strain at gnats and swallow camels. Indeed we do.
