The Age of Misguided Compassion


“We have guided missiles and misguided men.”

With that statement, Martin Luther King, Jr., perfectly summed up my feelings about the recent happenings in Washington, DC. None of the shameful atrocities that have occurred surprised me in the least – each represent a natural progression in man’s desire to denigrate the natural law, distort it, and otherwise trample on truth in deference to the ever-popular notions of “freedom of choice” and “personal rights.”

Although no actual missiles were directed toward the United States, the fabric of American society is still quivering from the symbolic blows it sustained as the result of what I like to think is misguided compassion. You hear the buzzword all the time. If you find abortion morally reprehensible, you don’t have compassion for women. If you don’t give your stamp of approval to gay “marriage,” you don’t have compassion for members of the LGBTQ community. If you support the enactment of voter ID laws, you don’t have compassion for minorities. The list is endless – and every single item liberals tack onto that list is completely bogus.

All that, simply for supporting an Act that did no more than codify an aspect of marriage that had been unquestioned in our society for most of its existence–indeed, had been unquestioned in virtually all societies for virtually all of human history. It is one thing for a society to elect change; it is another for a court of law to impose change by adjudging those who oppose it hostes humani generis, enemies of the human race.”
