“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

In his excellent (although vaguely anti-Catholic) book THE MARKETING OF EVIL: How Radicals Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom, David Kupelian wrote about the Dred Scott Supreme Court case of 1857. The Dred Scott decision denied blacks American citizenship and even questioned their full personhood. Kupelian laid out the case and quoted Supreme Court Chief Justice, Roger B Taney who wrote for the high court majority that blacks have “no rights which the white man is bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit. He was bought and sold and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever profit could be made by it.” Kupelian asked how the dreadful decision by the U.S. Supreme Court could get around the Declaration of Independence which affirmed that “all men are created equal”? Kupelian quoted Taney’s rationale: “It is too clear for dispute, that the enslaved African race were not intended to be included, and formed no part of the people who framed and adopted this declaration.”

Today, we look upon the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision with horror and disgust. And so we should. But we must not be so pious. Future generations will probably look back at the Roe v. Wade 1973 abortion decision with equal horror and disgust. And so they should. It was a barbaric decision by the highest court in the United States that was responsible for over 45 million abortions throughout the past 40 years! Each day across America more than 4,000 unborn children are sacrificed of the altar of sexual freedom for their parents.

In my country of Canada, the Supreme Court has decided that unborn children are not legal persons until birth ─ despite mountains of medical and biological knowledge about the humanity of prenatal life. And every Canadian abortion is paid for by tax dollars. Unborn children in the United States and Canada can be aborted throughout all 9 months.

If any place deserves God’s punishment, it is North America where these atrocities go on day after day, year and year, decade after decade.
