I was walking home today after a Breakfast Special, at Best Cafe in the Inshop in Stratford Mall, about 11.30am. I saw cop cars in the Crescent, where St. Francis’ Church is.
The police were peacekeeping at a demonstration by a small pro-life group, which was kneeling outside the Church. The rosary-reciting group were being ‘battered’ by the sonic efforts of the pro-abortion group. The latter were banging pots, blowing horns and whistles and singing pro-abortion songs. They were largely female.
Pro-lifers: singing hymns and reciting the rosary.
Pro-abortioners: trying to put them off, essentially.
Quite bizarre: women protesting to shut up people praying against Women’s Right To Kill The Life Inside Them.
On balance, who do you think, dear reader, finds favour with God?
If you don’t believe in God, what do you think happens to you when you die?
If you think “nothing”, then how safe do you feel in a society which is moving towards killing its members when they are very young, very old or just ill?
In the end, what force will your opinion carry, anyway, if the law circumscribes which opinions you can utter?
The wealthier, smarter Jews could see which way the wind was blowing in in the 1930’s Germany and skidaddled while the getting was good. Here’s hoping you and me have the same opportunity!
PS: Note the content of one of the pro-abortionist’s banners: “The only church … is a burning one”. The anger and the general ugliness of the pro-abortion groups tells me Who is ultimately behind them.
I mean, who in their right mind thinks that a young woman getting an abortion is a Good Thing? What’s good about a rape or an act of fornication (an evil) following by a killing (another evil)?
Postscript: That same day anarcho-socialist types were protesting the result of a democratic election, outside Downing Street. I see Socialist Worker banners held by the protesters and the usual references to the ‘Tories’ (a party which exists in their heads alone). See here
Quote: "Protesters threw bottles, cans and smoke bombs at the police. Scuffles broke out when the demonstrators, blaring hooters, banging pots and chanting obscenities, confronted lines of police outside the gate protecting the Prime Minister’s official residence."
My emphasis, above. It is interesting that more subdued mirror of this protest occurred in response to people praying against abortion in a side-street in Stratford on the same day. Some of the placards the protesters used, in both cases, were quite extreme.
What do the two protests have in common? They were against law, tradition and suffrage. Leftists don’t realise that, come the Revolution, the conservative, Christian people will be the first to the execution chamber and they will be the second. They’ll be too much of a liability. The Great Leader will permit no potential opposition.
Remember what happened to Trotsky!
