News is much dominated by the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico and fingers being pointed in all directions as to who is to blame and what ought to be done to stop the leak quickly. --- it's a shark in bloody waters situation with the mass media on the oil spewing into the Gulf
Broadcast media through major networks as well as internet sources are making the oil leak a priority news item. You can view a live stream video of the disaster on the internet. As is usually the case, there is a scramble to see who can outdo the competition in reporting the details. It is getting almost exciting as the blame game gets into high gear and the battle rages on with talk now coming from the federal government level of the pursuit of criminal charges possibly being filed. Ah, that makes great fodder when those evil oil companies become the target.
While that gusher continues to spew out the oil at the bottom of the Gulf there is another one that most citizens along with leaders (government and church) chose to ignore and have done so for decades.
That's the "gusher" of innocent blood that spews forth each day across our republic. It amounts to about 3,500 victims or more each day or about 25,000 every week on average throughout the year! These are unborn children who are intentionally singled out for mutilation and murder before they are born. The grand total since we instituted our own customized version of holocaust is now nearly 52 million!
It is a tragedy in more ways than one -- it's not just the huge number of victims but the fact that most, including our leadership (government and church), do not consider this a serious thing at all. If there is anything serious about it, that comes from a few who are considered to be fire-breathing radicals with an IQ rating of 65 at best and who need to be "educated" on why certain unborn persons do not deserve to live. There are government and church leaders who are "experts" at teaching us as to why this has to be and others who prefer to keep silent about the issue.
The tragedy is compounded by the fact that there is failure to realize that the mighty Creator of the heavens and the earth is going to make His response to this "gusher" of innocent blood in the future! One thing is sure -- the main question at that time will be something like this, "What have we done? Why is God doing all these bad things to us?"
Will you be among the crowd asking the questions, or will you be among the small number who will give a direct answer as to why calamities of the first magnitude are striking a republic known as the United States?
Moreover Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides his sin with which he made Judah sin, in doing evil in the sight of the LORD. --- 2 Kings 21:16
