When World War II ended General Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered thousands of films and photographs taken of the horror of the death camps. When asked why, he replied, “The day will come when some son of a #@%!# will say, this never happended.” That Holocaust claimed 6 million lives.
Today there is another holocaust that is taking place. This one is silent, under the radar. Yet in the last thirty years, this holocaust has taken more lives, worldwide, by well over an order of magnitude. It’s horror hidden by the protective machinery of government and media, and by the indifference of you and I and yes even by those who should be speaking out the loudest, most churches.
Today there are those who are beginning to say that the Jewish Holocaust never took place. Eisenhower was right.
In the present Silent Holocaust, however most have always been in denial that it is even taking place. This holocaust is ignored because innocent human life has been weighed in the balance and found wanting. The victor, the ugly word “Choice”.
Perhaps it is time to revisit “Choice”, to show what this word means in actuality.
