Revealed truth vs. secularism

Published: Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

I have written to you people before on this watershed issue of abortion, which has never seen the light of day in print. So I’ll keep this one short for the sake of the usual ordained letdown. 

Abortion is an issue, and will continue ever to be such, because of being, at core, the dividing line between revealed truth and secularism. “Pro-choice” [aka abortion rights] is simply liberal word speak, signifying nothing.

It is not some imaginary debate between what I believe and what you believe. It is, at heart, the defining principle between the absolutes and relativism, objective truth and progressivism, the philosophy of pragmatism (“the secular city”) and the three transcendentals: truth, goodness and beauty.
