The Supreme Court Decisions
The Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade and sent the abortion issue to the states to decide individually.
This will result in complete bans in some states while other states will allow the procedure.
While the ruling may create as many moral dilemmas as it solves, it does establish that we as a nation no longer fully affirm the procedure as morally neutral or a “right”.
That in itself is positive, but it is a long way from persuading people and changing hearts.
I suspect that the bans on abortion will be as successful as Prohibition was…with unforeseen consequences.
Thus, the real work of putting forth a Gospel view of life needs to increase all the more…and caring for unwanted children must again be central to the mission of the church.
The Court also removed some restrictions on the concealed carry of guns.
I grew up in a rural mountain community where guns were everywhere…hunting wasn’t a sport, it was sustenance.
However, if you would have had the audacity to wear one down to the restaurant, the ridicule and scorn would have you taking it home quickly.
We live in angry times…everybody packing won’t make us safer.
It remains to be seen whether it will put us in even more danger…
