Is Facebook interfering again?

Can the reaction to the Gossnell film can be regarded as a victory against the very truth of what happens in abortion?  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/facebook-blocks-gosnell-ads-labels-film-about-serial-killer-abortionist-pol

Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer is currently playing in theatres nationwide, but one of the film’s producers says that Facebook is doing its part to keep Americans from knowing about it. Why?

Was the great Times columnist, Bernard Levin right or wrong when he said,  “the atrophy of moral judgment is the characteristic disease of our times – the inability to see evil and a willingness to condone it”? 

Is there in fact a great badness underpinning the attack on the truth of what happens in abortion? Is our own Prime Minister dodging this, in her wish to “liberalise” the law?

Why do so many American women – and women elsewhere  – they  who know the reality of a dependent little life growing inside them –  so very desperately repudiate  what is actually true? Why do they fight against taking on board the fact that much more is involved than the highly specious mantra of “a woman’s right to her own body”?

It’s not her own body she’s having killed, is it…

So what about the fudging of the fact that the deliberate killing of a boy or girl child instead is what actually happens?

What if it is no accident that we have progressed – or rather – regressed – to the point where people have become embarrassed about actually using their judgment about what is good or  evil – even about the existence of actual forces of good and evil – because it is now unfashionable to do so? 

Has “evil” simply become an embarrassing word?

But what if there is both good and evil in the world and we are constantly faced with choices between these?  And what if these choices carry consequences?

What is the effect on us – and on our society – if we just don’t want to know – if we pretend it doesn’t matter whether or not we actually try to get to the truth of issues – rather than simply justify to ourselves and others the choices that are “more convenient”, more palatable?

But what if to be human carries an obligation that we must evaluate what we’re doing – what we support and what we don’t support?

What if we are expected to think with our heads as well as our hearts – to make moral choices – to even think about the meaning of the word moral?

What if it is time to stop ignoring or glossing over the damage this dreadful practice has done to so many women, victims of a massive con – many in pain for the rest of their lives… let alone the dead babies resulting?

Is part of the problem with Western civilisation today that basically, individuals have been long propagandised against the necessity for moral and spiritual and spiritual choices in our lives?

What if it is actually true that …”Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians. 

Is it time we faced up to being far less conflicted about talking about  the very real possibility of moral and spiritual evil  – and of the act of abortion being very much part of this? 

And shouldn’t we wonder why those who legitimately raise these issues are subjected to such vilification and abuse?

I wonder if we realise how much we owe Ian Wishart?

Looking back at the history of INVESTIGATE  magazine should very much bring home to us the fact that writer and publisher Ian Wishart made the holes in the hedges on so many issues of the day. This was not only in his painstaking analysis of so many of the political and social issues given once-over-lightly treatment by far the majority of our journalists. His refusal to look for anything but the truth of issues behind the façades shielding some of our  most prominent – (and most damaging)  – politicians brought home to so many of us what was, and still is,  happening to this country.

It will take a long time indeed before his deservedly bestselling books even begin to date. And given the blacklisting given to my own books and columns by a basically malevolent, government-supported literary hierarchy dominated by a thoroughly unscrupulous Left coterie in this country, I owe Ian for his courage in publishing and supporting my own well-researched columns which, too, were before their time.

The neo-Marxist infiltration of our now third-rate education system,  and the pernicious effects on a formerly more unified, less crime-ridden country  – with the deliberate fomenting of a grievance mentality among so many of part-Maori genetic inheritance – were areas which very much concerned a few of us over three decades ago.

The results are now with us – due to the intellectual laziness and vote-buying propensity of our politicians. But that the churches now seem to have lost their own pathway to carry forward the message of the Christian values and beliefs so long fundamental in stabilising Western society, should give us cause for increasing concern. That the hierarchy of the Catholic Church in particular, long regarded as less likely to give way to contemporary fashions, are  now regarded as needing a reminder of what has always been its central message, is no light matter.

As always, so much depends upon individuals, challenging what has gone wrong. And as one individual who has always stood up to be counted, regardless of whether or not  readers have always agreed with his views –  and as head and shoulders above so many of his journalist colleagues – Ian Wishart deserves all our respect.
