Here’s one worth thinking about:
It’s at WorldNetDaily, so I guess partisans will mostly ignore it, but I thought it was pretty insightful vis a vis the current state of mind in America with regard to defending those who cannot defend themselves.
[quote]The first and last time Charles saw Clara alive, she was being dragged by her hair through the CNN Center in Atlanta. Clara’s tormentor ordered Charles out of the way, and instead of standing his ground to defend an obviously distressed woman, he obeyed the thug’s order and let them pass.
There was a time when a majority of American men would almost surely have come to Clara’s aid. They believed in an ethic that said, “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.” (Proverbs 24:11)
It was a day when men, recognizing the reality of evil, carried weapons that enabled them to stand in the gap for those being unjustly tormented and threatened. Virtually any man on the street could come to the aid of a victim like Clara.
Posted by Bob Allen, I found it to be sad and scary at the same time.
