For our first venture into this day’s crapola, we have actor Liam Neeson–he once played Kinsey, and has never gotten over it–doing a voice-over for an ad calling for the repeal of the pro-life amendment to the Irish Constitution.
The Constitution, says Neeson, sounding just like any American liberal fat-head, was “written for another time,” a time “we thought we’d left behind us.”
Even a fool may be thought wise, if he can keep his trap shut (Proverbs 17:28). Neeson doesn’t know how to do that.
Apparently gazillions of women in Ireland died these horrible deaths because those dirty Christians and that mean old Catholic Church wouldn’t let them have abortions. The rhetoric is illustrated with views of an old ruined church, a spooky cemetery full of crosses, and a lot of sad and eerie music.
Yes, those bad old days of Christianity! Boy, good thing we don’t have to deal with that anymore! We have a glorious post-Christian culture perched atop a hill of corpses, millions of them babies’ corpses. Good thing we don’t believe in that bad old God anymore!
That’s why our world today is so blindingly humane and wonderful.
