“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Today's Wall Street Journal has an excellent Op-Ed article about assisted suicide, written by Fr. Tadeusz Pacholczyk, Ph.D.. [1] It appears under the title "Please Step Back From the Assisted-Suicide Ledge". Read it here:

Father Pacholczyk's Op-Ed is particularly timely because Massachusetts may be the next American state to legalize assisted suicide in a vote expected in early November.[2] I would have missed the article had it not been for Dr. Eric Chevlen sending me an email this morning saying that Fr. Tad mentioned my case at the end of his Op-Ed.  
[1] Reverend Tadeusz Pacholczyk is an American Roman Catholic priest. He holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Father Pacholczyk is the Director of Education and Ethics for the National Catholic Bioethics Centre, Philadelphia, PA..
[2] The issue of assisted suicide is like a bad penny. Its advocates do not give up. In 1997 I was invired to appear be a Massachusetts state senate judiciary committee as the studied a euthanasia bill before the legislature. It was unsuccessful then. The latest attempt may succeed.  I urge all citizens of good will to reject assisted suicide on November 6th
