An empty cradle–welcome to humanism
One of my readers, responding to the story about the idiot college students mistaking a priest for a Klansman, has asked, “What’s next?”
I am not happy about being able to answer that.
In Japan, a country caught in a demographic death spiral because people just aren’t having babies anymore, entrepreneurs have brought to market a Virtual Reality Sex Suit, a full-body thingamajig that lets you enjoy a pitiful form of “sex” without a partner ( https://www.rt.com/viral/338662-virtual-reality-sex-suit/ ). For a mere $400, you can indulge in what I think our British friends would call high-tech wanking.
Why do I even mention something as disgusting as this?
Because it shows our modern, global, humanist civilization as having firmly placed itself on the road to extinction, and is a grim reminder that we need to pray as we’ve never prayed before–pray for repentance, for a return to sanity, for God to give us the courage to stand in front of this tidal wave and cry, “Enough!”
May the good Lord hear us.
