Perpetuating a culture of death

Even before the lifeless bodies of the Sandy Hook massacre could be removed from the classrooms, the predictable, illogical and emotional calls for gun control/elimination began echoing through the media from the usual sources.

But enactment of more gun control laws will do little or nothing to stop the continuing violence erupting in our country.

The main source of this evil is the culture of death which continues to permeate society and against which the saintly Pope John Paul II spoke so forcefully in his epic encyclical Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel of Life).

The foremost proponent of this culture of death in our country is President Obama. He is the most pro-abortion president in history. While a state senator, he voted four times against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, thereby supporting infanticide.

As a U.S. Senator, he stated that the vote he most regretted was his vote, along with 98 other Senators, to give a chance at life for Terri Schiavo when she was being cruelly dehydrated to death in Florida.

He has targeted for elimination us elderly by stealing more than $700 billion from Medicare to use for his Obamacare, while his all powerful Independent Payment Advisory Board, in essence a death panel, will decide who of us gets what treatment and when.

His unmanned drones rain down death from the skies on the unsuspecting.

Meanwhile, all, and especially the young, are exposed to all forms of extreme violence on television, in the movies and in video games.

As a result, we have become desensitized to death and destruction.

And what does the president propose as a response to the Sandy Hook Massacre? He calls for "meaningful action," his euphemism for gun control, while shedding a tear for the TV cameras. What a waste and disgrace.
