J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit that are so loved by millions across the world, once wrote this in a letter:
“Actually I am a Christian and indeed a Roman Catholic, so that I do not expect ‘history’ to be anything but a ‘long defeat’— though it contains (and in legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or glimpses of final victory.”
Conservatives and Christians with our ears to the ground, aka high-information voters, sometimes get discouraged by the daily news of the unrelenting corruption of Americans and of our culture.
It seems we are losing the culture wars — what Tolkien ruefully called a “long defeat.”
Take heart, my friends!
The following two maps are from the
pro-choice pro-abortion pro-murder Guttmacher Institute, showing the encouraging pro-life shift in opinion in America in just 13 years, as evidenced by various state legislatures’ restrictions on abortion.
The source of the maps is a sympathetic article on American
abortionists murderers, by Karen McVeigh, in the UK-based The Guardian of Nov. 21, 2014. The tone of the article is one of shock and dismay that America has grown more pro-life.
Such is the corrupt soul of The Guardian and its “senior news reporter” Karen McVeigh that they rue the pro-life advances made in America, having sympathy only for the devil.
