Roe With Us Into the Quagmire

“In a case which shows the strange inconsistencies in laws dealing with violence against unborn children, a Florida man has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder for tricking his pregnant girlfriend into taking abortion pills, leading to the death of their unborn child. [The mother- to- be] was happy to be pregnant and planned on having the baby, despite the fact that her boyfriend, John Andrew Weldon, didn’t want the child.”

Welcome to the Brave New World Disorder.

One generation ago (1973), a few men in black robes decided that some persons aren’t persons no matter how small. Since then, the progressive slide into the pit of moral relativism, confusion, inconsistency, hypocrisy and evil has been ominously precipitous to the point today that legalizing ex-utero…ahem… abortion (ie., infanticide) is being seriously discussed.

The spirit of relativism and obfuscation lies heavy in the air….like a very toxic swamp gas.



Oh what a tangled web we weave when Satan’s whisper so deceives….

“Truth is no longer absolute, but is soft, squishy and negotiable.”
—Peter Kreeft




Roe With Us Into the Quagmire
(Wade In This Immoral Pit)


Roe with us into the quagmire,
Wade in this Immoral Pit.
Welcome to the Po-Mo Swampland,
Where confusion never quits.

“Virtue”’s now been deconstructed…
“Good” means only what you “feel” …
When you say that you’re “expecting” ,
Friend, today that’s no big deal!

You can always “get around it”…
It’s a Brave New World, you see!
You can always ”take or leave ”it…
Po-Mo Ambiguity.

It’s a “fetus”…No!.. A “person”!
Hold yer horses!...Take that back!
That’s no “baby”…But it’s murder!
(I’m confused and can’t keep track!)

OK, friend, let’s keep our heads here…
Let’s let Reason rule at last:
On weekends we’ll call it ”Baby”,
And on weekdays, “Tissue Mass” .

Yep, on Monday name it “Cell-Growth”,
But on Sunday it’s a Boy!
Tuesday/Wednesday it’s “The Problem”
But on Saturday a “Joy”!

Whoops!...an “Accident” on Thursday,
And on Friday “Precious Child”…
I know, I know, it’s confusing,
But, at last, it’s reconciled!

Yes, my friend…I think we’ve got it!
That’s the perfect compromise!
This way everybody’s happy!
(And, of course, extremely wise!)

This is great!.... We’ve solved “The Problem”…
Some days “whats” and some days “who’s” !
Meet the New Age Bio-Ethics…
We believe!....What’s there to lose!?

Now “Whatever!” is our mantra,
Yep, it solves most everything!
It makes Truth obscure and fuzzy …
BUT it’s got a pleasant ring!

Swamp Gas

"Vulgar relativism is an invisible gas, odorless, deadly, that is now polluting every free society on earth. It is a gas that attacks the central nervous system of moral striving. The most perilous threat to the free society today is, therefore, neither political nor economic. It is the poisonous, corrupting culture of relativism..."
—Michael Novak , "Awakening from Nihilism: The Templeton Prize Address"
