“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

An odd and unsettling thing happened yesterday. I was talking to a fellow who said (in the most matter of fact way) that after Christmas he's going to be attending a friend's assisted suicide. His friend has early ALS. Curious how quickly that which used to be unthinkable has become a matter of course. (It's only been 6 months since Canada legalized assisted suicide.)

Government health care costs are skyrocketing in Canada; I have had MS for over 32 years; I'm expensive to keep around. How long will it be before the current right to die will become a future duty to die? -- Mark
