    Hits the nail on the head. Those of us who’ve known of PP’s agenda for years have had a hard time getting any response. Perhaps things had to get so openly gruesome before people will take notice, like the pictures of the concentration camps after WW2 did then….in-the-face reality is all that works for many people. We need to use that horror as leverage to affect corporate donors to PP as well as government funding, before the truth-deniers and lie-spinners lull people back into apathy.

      I’m amazed at the lack of interest in this story by the MSM. I know I shouldn’t be, but how can they ignore such a story? Thanks for writing.

    Most of the younger “journalists, the Gen X’ers and the Millenials, fear the opprobrium of their fellow staffers more than they fear (respect) God. God is not relevant in their everyday lives, but their fellow workers can make things very uncomfortable (the meeker ones don’t dare cross the loud and proud activists and they go along to get along). Do you think their parents (the Baby Boomers) brought them up or were most of them products of the indoctrination of government school day care, etc? Morality started failing in our public schools in the 60’s and the parochial schools followed suit in the 70’s and beyond. It is all about parents failing to meet their responsibilities. Selfishness has its consequences, Tom.

      Your question is provocative. My catechism group discusses it at length. I don’t think there is a single answer. I didn’t join the Church until the early 80s, but I was aware of a silence on the issues of abortion, contraception, and homosexuality. Good will come from the bad. God only knows when. As always, thanks for writing.
