Leon Panetta, American Defense Secretary, along with most of our governing elites, are showing signs of military and metaphysical Alzheimer’s: women, it is reported, will now be allowed to fight in combat. Oh boy, the scourge of war, the fruit of sin, that hell on earth called war may now be joined and fully enjoyed by our mothers and our sisters and our cousins and our aunts.

Mothers used to be the givers of life (Eve, “mother of the living”). Today, January 23, 2013, is Roe v. Wade 40 Years Plus a Day. It marks a sad trail that has been blazed, from approving women killing their own children to women killing soldiers in combat. A long way.
