Favorite Quote:
"Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world." - Justice Antonin Scalia


Innonence! Innocence!
No cause for you to die;
You are not to blame for all
The evils men devise.
You alone are innocent
Among this culture's breed;
Why should you, then, pay the price
For all our wicked deeds?

I shouted this in anguish
To the millions we have lost;
And at once I was reminded
Of a Man upon a Cross.


The author's comments:

53 million babies have been lost to abortion in America alone. This poem is a tribute to them, those who have gone, like Christ, "like lambs to the slaughter".
