“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

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, 2-3 May 2014: The First National Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide. Register here - https://www.imposeddeath.org/index.php/conferences/minnesota-coference/ 

This symposium is a "must attend" for people of good will who are concerned about stemming the tide of euthanasia and assisted suicide that is rapidly gaining acceptance across North America.  

Pied pipers of assisted suicide
The pied pipers of death are promoting euthanasia and assisted suicide; they will lead vulnerable people to their graves under the seduction of so-called "death with dignity."  Legalization of assisted suicide of terminally/incurably ill people and the disabled has gained a toehold in Oregon and Washington state. Other American states are being pressured to accept assisted suicide. (I fear those states that reject euthanasia through their legislatures will have it imposed upon them through activist courts.)

In Canada, the province of Quebec is on the cusp of legalizing assisted suicide under the wicked euphemism "medical aid in dying." The Liberal Party of Canada has adopted a resolution to decriminalize assisted suicide if elected.  It's really quite frightening for people like me to know we are so unwelcome in society. 

As a chronically ill and disabled person, I plead with North America to reject euthanasia and assisted suicide. I know what's in store for people like me if we become suicidal. We will not get suicide prevention counselling -- that's reserved for the healthy and able-bodied -- we will get help killing ourselves. We will be disposed of with the utmost civility.

Euthanasia and assisted suicide are not death with dignity. They are ways of culling the sick and disabled from society. I grieve for what is in store for people like me, but I also grieve for a once great Christian society that is dying. This is just a symptom of that terrible reality.  --- Mark
