Plumbing the depths

When one severs the link between sexual activity and reproduction—as one does if one rejects the traditional Christian teaching on marriage and the family—two consequences invariably follow.

On the one hand, we have witnessed the rise of a pornographied and contraceptive culture characterised by unrestrained licentiousness, promiscuity, and convenience killing.

On the other hand, we see the creation of life increasingly transferred from the womb to the laboratory, a sinister move wherein the new life is subjected—all with the approval of government—to fiendish manipulations that violate the most foundational principles of ethics and humanity.

This blasphemy is just the beginning. They’ll be manufacturing the Uruk-Hai next.

Just wait and see.

The British public are, apparently, “at ease” with this abomination. Melancholicus is not in the least surprised, since western liberal societies have already swallowed so many camels that one more won’t hurt.

Or so they think.
