Why Have We Not Been Destroyed?

This is the worst headline I've ever read, from the UK Telegraph:

Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals

The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as 'clinical waste' by hospitals in Britain with some used in 'waste to energy' plants

There are so many things I could say, I hesitate to choose two for fear of unnecessarily denigrating all other just reactions, but here goes:

1. If the story involved burning a particular race of people already born in order to heat hospitals, the justifiable outrage would not end with comparisons to Hitler, but would not end until there were trials, jail terms and wholesale reforms following a political theater-type public inquiry. Not so here.

2. Why does the West ever claim moral superiority over any of the heathen and infidel nations we like to invade so much? Hate us for our freedoms? Maybe the freedom to slaughter our own children.

The mind reels at such unspeakable evil, that the soul is afraid to ask for mercy. But ask for mercy we must, and so I do: Lord, have mercy on us! Tuesday being the feast of the Incarnation of Him Who saved us by the merciful outpouring of His Precious Blood, may our Lord and Lady have mercy on us, and protect us from the wrath to come.
