Moloch’s Children: that’s the working title for a scary screenplay I considered doing. And while I can be creepy as heck (ask any girl!), my intentional horror is nothing compared to modern “society”.
Toure went on what he called an abortion rant in which he thanked God and country abortion was there to “save him” at a time when taking care of a baby and becoming a father would have been inconvenient for him.
Mary E. Williams, one of Toure’s fellow cultists, is less famous but even more direct. “So what if abortion ends life?”
…I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing.
Well, that is the point of human sacrifice. If humanity wasn’t precious it would be a poor offering to one’s god. (Although Toure gives the impression that while Toure’s life is precious, the same isn’t true for everyone else.)
There’s just no comparison between today’s death cultists and their predecessors; the old farts were better human beings. Toure killed his unborn baby to prevent it from crimping his social life. Why did Aztecs offer Huitzilopochtli human lives and blood? To keep his divine strength up as he fought in defense of their world.
Most pro-choice people aren’t as clear-sighted as Ms. Williams and will shy away from her directness. But nothing will happen to Toure or Williams either, so so we’ll be seeing more of this coming days. I honestly didn’t think we’d reached the point where people congratulate themselves for baby killing and society lets them, but there you are. I claim only rationality, not infallibility.
(As this sort of “news” increases, the time I spend reading it decreases. Apart from vacations, it was probably last century when I spent less time online this weekend. Thus, the non-blogging. Ahhh, well. You know what they say.)
Thanks Marlon…………it needs to be put out there.
Well, this is the smallest drop in the digital ocean, but thanks. And it’s a Catch-22, of course. The people who need to think about this will never confront the idea to begin with.
Moloch’s Children would be a good screenplay, too. Or maybe a good horror novel first, then a screenplay after someone offers for the movie rights.
I was going to set it in Detroit, and thought it had a pretty good twist on the genre; imagine a foe so evil that the cops, Bloods, and Crips must team up against it.

As Mary E. Williams said, “All life is not equal.”

I wish I could say I never saw it coming either, but… yeah.
Nice place you got here. You were recommended to me by this guy – http://whatdoyoudoforanencore.wordpress.com/
