There is a dark blemish on our beautiful city. It is Planned Parenthood, the primary provider of abortions. It is located in the vicinity of Centennial Blvd and Fillmore Street. On the sidewalk close by, pro-life people gather to pray for the unborn and for the conversion of hearts. As I was praying and looking at this evil facility, my mind wandered, thinking about so many other hideous crimes against humanity. Under Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, it is estimated 100 million people were exterminated. Under those regimes, if good and caring people protested they could be next in line! Not so in our country. In our Republic, power belongs to the people. We can take action!!
Today we remember and are painfully aware of the insidious treatment to the slaves and American Indians. For many years our laws did not protect them from injustices. As a child growing up in Montana, I often heard, “The only good Indian is a dead Indian!” Why didn’t good people take action? There are lots of reasons. The main one was they bought into misinformation that mainly the slaves and the Indians in some ways were not considered fully human.
