Syria not only nation allowing ‘moral obscenity’

Checking the captions of the Aug. 27 Telegraph, I gave a happy, comforting sigh. On the front-page is the photo of the Scary Guy who visited Amboy Junior High School. 

The Scary Guy has fans because he talks about love, kindness, sharing and caring to replace hate, violence and bullying. He teaches love. Love is the solution and the hope of all. Reading the whole story about Scary Guy put a smile on my face.

Then I continue my way through the newspaper, carefully stopping to read the captions, articles, headlines, pictures, and so on. You see, my nearsighted reading ability is getting quite bad. I take great pleasure in reading and writing.

A low-vision specialist doctor rescued me with a ready tool called the Bierley Electronic Magnifier. It has an overgrown mouse that is attached to my own TV. The TV also has a special connection from TV to electrical outlet. After the proper setting on the remote, I place the mouse on my reading material. It flashes on the TV screen. High tech; oh, yes.

The back page of the same newspaper was bad news. Comments by Kerry, our secretary of state, were true but warlike. He put triple emphasis on chemical weapons that have killed civilians in great numbers. Kerry called the Syrian action a “moral obscenity.” 

What do Kerry and the Obama administration call abortion that they support so strongly? Abortion that kills our future citizens at the count of a million a year? Our commander-in-chief has a U.S. fleet in position to attack. It’s like a fleet of toys on a game board.

“We don’t want war again,” is our cry. “Stop abortion,” is our plea.
