A Scary Answer

I woke up one morning last week and read three stories about cannibalism.

The first story was about a guy in Florida that was chewing off another man’s face.  It took five shots from the police to finally kill the cannibal in the act.

The second story was about a guy in Baltimore that killed his roommate and ate his brain and heart.

The final story was about an international cannibal that is still on the loose.

We’re all shocked by stories like these.  Well, all of us except the guy that says something like, “These kind of things always happen.  The media is just now making a big deal about it.  Everyone should just settle down.”  For some reason, the news that there have always been people eating other people’s brains doesn’t help me settle down.

Earlier in the week I saw a story that was just as disturbing.  A lady with a group called Live Action went into a Planned Parenthood facility posing as a mom desiring an abortion.  The reason she gave for wanting an abortion was that she found out that she was having a girl and she wanted a boy instead.  The Planned Parenthood representative was more than accommodating to this woman’s wishes.  If you’re keeping score at home, U.S. taxpayers are paying for that sort of thing.

Now it’s the beginning of a new week and I’m left with one big question that I just can’t quit asking myself.  How is our government, the government that uses its citizens to fund the murder of defenseless babies based on their gender, any different from or better than the three cannibals I read about?  I think I know the answer to that question and it really scares me.
