Pull the plug on Alfie: the State as the Agent of Death

 

Pull the Plug!

A Vignette on the State as the Agent of Death

 

Britain decides whether your life is worth living — and no Parent can keep its Hand off the Plug

(and don’t count on your cardinal or bishop either)

 

 

 

We want you dead, Alfie!

 

*  Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP, Archbishop of Liverpool on behalf of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales — with their hands on the plug, too: ( ... all “Catholics)
 

I would like to express my deepest sympathy at this moment of loss to Tom and Kate as we hold little Alfie in our prayers. All who have been touched by the story of this little boy’s heroic struggle for life will feel this loss deeply. But as a Christian Alfie has the promises of God, who is love, to welcome him into his heavenly home.” — even though we didn't so much as lift a finger to help him, his mother or his father. The official Vatican News Agency stated the following: “The Catholic bishops of England and Wales issue a statement highlighting the professionalism of staff at Liverpool's Alder Hey hospital.” (We wonder if their admiration for the “professionalism” of those who collectively end the lives of others, extends to other relatively recent, and present regimes which excelled in it — beyond our darkest imagination)


* Pope Francis: Act for another’s good — as you see it —  not as God sees it ... nor as the Church teaches:

Although the past few weeks have been difficult with much activity on social media, we must recognise that all who have played a part in Alfie’s life have wanted to act for his good, as they see it. Above all, we must thank Tom and Kate for their unstinting love of their son, and the staff at Alder Hey Hospital for their professional care of Alfie.” (Yes, the pope is presumed to be Catholic). In other words, depending on how you look at it (more of the situational ethics of Francis), “if you think it is good to pull the plug on a child for some insane reason — go for it! Who am I to say?

 

 

In other words, no plea for Alfie, his mother or his father, from prominent Catholics ... only from a prominent Muslim ... on behalf of a Christian:

You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book. (Ps. 56.8)

A Frightening Prologue

We are witnessing the death — not only of Alfie Evans — but of Western Christian culture; of the collective and seared conscience of the tattered remnants of a once Christian, but now militantly secularized society that has no tolerance for religion ... and even less for life itself.

This is the frightening prologue of things to come — and from a once enlightened people who fell into darkness.
