“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

We are at the end of the 2015 International Day of People with Disabilities. People of good will and those concerned about human rights must resolve to oppose assisted suicide. Why? Because assisted suicide is specifically targeted at people with incurable or chronic illnesses and disabilities. Assisted suicide does not further inclusion, it is the ultimate exclusion. 

Disability rights, dignity, respect of human difference, and the
important quest for non-discrimination will ultimately suffer if assisted suicide is accepted. In the same way suicide prevention is an important mental health tool for healthy and able-bodied suicidal people, the same must apply for disabled suicidal people. 

Christians have a crucial role to play to promote full inclusion that can rise to its highest level under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
