I am now ashamed of our country

By Bruce Garren, Director of Personhood Kansas

I remember when I was a boy, around the age of 10, sitting on the couch with my dad watching a television documentary.

The defendants at the Nuremberg Nazi trials. Pictured in the front row are: Hermann Goering, Rudolf Hess, Joachim Von Ribbentrop, Wilhelm Keitel and Ernst Kaltenbrunner. In the back row are: Karl Doenitz, Erich Raeder, Baldur von Schirach, and Fritz Sauckel.

It was a trial being held against a German soldier for Nazi war crimes during the World War II. As part of the evidence against him films of the crimes he had ordered were shown. The films were so grainy that I could barely make out what I was seeing. But in time I could make out that people in groups of six where being hurriedly taken in front of a ditch and shot with rifles by soldiers only a few feet away. Their bodies would be blown back into the ditch with other dead bodies.

Even at that age I knew that my dad had fought in the war and jeopardized his life to end that killing. I grew up being proud of the sacrifice my dad and men like him had been willing to make. I was proud that I lived in a country that stood against an evil like that.

I’m saddened to say that I no longer have that pride for the country I live in. On the contrary, I am now ashamed of our country. Every day in America thousands of innocent defenseless preborn children are murdered in their mother’s womb because they are believed to be too great a burden to bare up under.

Every real man in America can change the world like our fathers and grandfathers did by becoming a father to the fatherless children scheduled to die in the abortuaries in America by defending their lives with our own.

After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel.

Judges 2:10

We should all be in prayer asking God what he would have us do to end this holocaust.
