Don't turn your back on moral decay

May our good Lord bless and encourage you for boldly going where few in the mainstream media have the courage, integrity and honesty to tread. Your Jan. 22 editorial page, including the editorial "The House that Roe Built," accurately highlighted where the moral decay in our society is taking us.

When we as a nation turn away from our Judeo-Christian principles of love of God and love of neighbor, especially the most vulnerable and helpless in their mothers' wombs, what sort of legacy or way of life will there be for our children and grandchildren? When we truly love someone more than ourselves, we strive to please them even when it requires sacrifice and dying over self.

Jesus said, " He who obeys the commandments he has from me is the Man who loves me." (John 14:21) and "This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you." (John 15:12)

May God grant us the grace to wake up to the reality of the horror of the slaughter of more that 3,600 innocent unborn babies each day in our country, and do what we can to save them and their mothers.

May we never forget what is commonly attributed to Edmund Burke: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Thank you again for your editorials and the Cal Thomas column.
