Drinking Deeply

Wow, now that's something

Tim Challis has a post about abortion where he looks at the ironies of this article on Foxnews about the conviction of a man on two counts of murder when he helped his girlfriend miscarry by stepping on her stomach. He got two counts, she got off scott free because of abortion laws. Wow.

"Testimony alleged both may have wanted a miscarriage so the babies wouldn't infringe on college and social plans."

Wow. It's really a sad state of affairs when something like this happens. Not only do we have a society that doesn't stand up when things like this happen, but it's actually protected.

Though as one person pointed out to me, it's not like it's anything new. Ever since the fall sin has consumed society and ruined lives. I am reminded of G.K. Chesterton's classic response to the question "what's wrong with the world?"

"me."

But somehow through it all, in spite of how wrong we are. We're cleaned. Deng. It's that infinite grace for an infinite sin thing again. Wow.
