The Electric Gulag

Ben’s great-grandparents met in the internment camp colony forty one years ago. They were only two in a sea of millions driven to the camps colonies because of the famine.

Generations lived their entire lives in these resorts. They must be resorts. Nobody works. They don’t have to. They spend their time on leisurely pursuits. Everything is provided by the government.

He watches the black smoke from the power plant dissipate as he considers tomorrow’s big day. His birthday.
Ben eyes the transmission lines from the plant as they fade into the horizon. He thought, “I wonder where they lead?” The propaganda drones say the outside world is a desolate wasteland.

As Ben reflects on his life, he realizes that he will finally see the inside of the plant tomorrow. The government provided Ben a comfortable life, and tomorrow will be a very special day.

He’s seen those olive drab government limousines scuttle about almost daily and he will finally have his turn to ride in one tomorrow. The government will honor him when the limousine delivers him to the plant. He will be incinerated.

Burn Baby Burn

I am utterly revolted. I just read on the Matt Walsh Blog that aborted babies are being burned to generate electricity. Seriously? Baby murder is already big business, but to burn the corpses? I’m aware that we have limited resources, but incineration as a creative solution?

We live in a wicked society where adultery and homosexuality are lauded as normal. Abortion is a common method of birth control. Forget about controlling your animal tendencies to behave like wild donkeys because morality is no fun.

Matt Walsh is right when he says we regard stray cats and dogs as more important than a human. Actually, I think he referenced dolphins, but dolphins are basically sea-cats. (I’m sure the ASPCA is working on an ad campaign to save the sea-cats). We no longer fear The Lord and we do what is right in our own eyes. (Judges 21:25)

When will this death cult reach the bottom? This post-modern society has no absolute truth. Everyone has their own truth. What do we do when two truths collide? Which truth supersedes the other? If I have a bigger stick, my truth wins.

If our Truth doesn’t come from the Way, the Truth, and the Life, our lives are built on sand. 1 Corinthians 10:23 says that all things are lawful, but not everything is profitable…unless you are in the business of torching aborted babies.

Just to be clear, I have no issue with people rescuing animals, but we are Imago Dei–our priority should be to focus on human needs. It’s chilling to see people stop to rescue abandoned puppies in the street, yet ignore a homeless guy.
