The Culture of Death displays its hatred...

The message of the Culture of Death is one of hatred and despair. Contrast that message with these words from Pope John Paul II given during a homily on Boston Common: "I want to meet you and tell you all - men and women of all creeds and ethnic origins, children and youth, fathers and mothers, the sick and the elderly - that God loves you, that he has given you a dignity as human beings that is beyond compare.."

The Moloch State is founded on an ideology which is rooted in hatred and violence. But wherever we find the presence of evil, we always find the presence of good by grace. Saint Paul tells us that, "The free gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died through the one man's trespass, much more surely have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded for the many." (Romans 5: 15). Redemption is ongoing. And where evil grows, there the hope for good also grows.

We will, with the help of God's grace, overcome evil with good and hatred with love. The message which the Culture of Death offers is not attractive to people of good will. And it never will be. For it offers no hope. Look at the picture posted by an abortion clinic and meditate on Matthew 12:34.
