“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

I was recently speaking at a disability conference. Someone commented that I'm holding up extremely well after 32 years with MS that has been aggressive. I know, most people would be institutionalized or gone by now. There was a time when multiple sclerosis took me to the edge of quadriplegia; my situation was getting that serious! In fact, my neurologist put me on drastic, potentially life threatening therapy still in clinical study phase to try and prevent quadriplegia. Things were that dire. The therapy proved so toxic to me he stopped it early. Happily, the attack later subsided.

I am fortunate. The MS has not yet silenced me from speaking out on Life issues or confused moral clarity for me.

In whatever time I have left, I will continue to promote the equality, dignity and sanctity all human life from conception to natural death. North American society has abandoned its previous Christian moral consensus in favour of nihilism and narcissism. The foundations of the family have crumbled and marriage redefined. 

I wish I had not born into a time where unwanted or inconvenient children are killed before birth or suicidal sick and disabled people were not helped to kill themselves. (God help us in the dark and murderous future!) But there it is: I must respond to the situation I find myself in. Tolkein said it
