I was all set to write a kind of humorous post in which Ysbott the Snake, a villain in my Bell Mountain books, comes on to say how disgusted he is by the news of our supposedly real world. “They do things even I would be ashamed of!”
But I had to bag it when the news of baby Alfie Evans crossed my screen.
One cannot understand such a bleak and evil story. Hospitals in other countries offered to take over the child’s care. The Pope interceded. But to no avail: the UK National Health insisted on killing that baby and some judge backed them up. The parents’ wishes were ignored. Family doesn’t count, in secular humanism.
Why did it matter so much to the “authorities” to end the baby’s life? Has anybody heard an explanation that made any kind of sense?
The true and living God loves mercy.
The false gods of this evil age can’t even spell the word.
