Baby Charlie: Martyr of the Culture of Death

Little Charlie Gard won't make his first birthday. His time is up, but he'll always be remembered as one of the early martyrs of the new and ruthless religion of militant secularism.

First they taught us how to kill millions of babies in their mothers' wombs.  Then they told God to go to Hell. And now they're engaging in outright infanticide. And this they would have us accept as benchmarks of an enlightened society's evolution from the "barbaric" ages of Faith and Holy Christendom. 

But who are the real barbarians? 

Pray for the Gard family, and may Charlie intercede for us all as we face the prospect of an increasingly Godless world, which is at war with life and addicted to sex, violence and institutionalized narcissism.

Welcome to the Culture of Death.
