Firing Squads

55 million souls...

That's more than the total population of the 20 biggest cities in the U.S.  Imagine that tomorrow no one lives in New York, LA, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonia, San Diego, Dallas, San Jose, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Austin, San Francisco, Columbus, Fort Worth, Charlotte, Detroit, El Paso, Memphis...(which is only about 32 million...I stopped adding after the top 20 cities).  Imagine that all those people are suddenly gone.  Now instead of these people disappearing, imagine that they are murdered by firing squad with the blessing of the federal government.

If you lived outside of one of those cities, what would you do?  Would you go on with your day?  Would you stand up to the injustice?  Would you pray for the firing squads to stop?  Would you cheer on the firing squads?  Would you pay the salary of the firing squads?  Would you vote in favor of more firing squads with the power to increase the numbers of people shot?

I have to admit that I haven't done much to stop abortion other than vote for life, pray outside abortion clinics a few times, and pray for the end of abortion.  Every prayer is efficacious and every prayer matters, but action is necessary.  Somehow, some way, I'm going to find more ways to be involved to stop abortion.

A nation that kills babies shouldn't be surprised that other things in the culture aren't so rosy.
