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)
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.
