The false god of the moderns...

Is Priapus, and the act of worship he now demands is child sacrifice.
Richard H. Reeb of the Claremont Institute has a brilliant essay on the return of this most ancient of horrors-
The late Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel, once said that peace with the Palestinians will be possible when they love their own children more than they hate the Israelis. In saying so, she touched upon a fundamental difference between pagan and biblical religion: the presence or absence of child sacrifice.

Many ancient peoples believed in sacrificing a child to an angry god like Moloch or Baal in order to avert misfortune. Today, thousands of Muslims believe that sacrificing their children as "suicide" bombers in a crowd of people pleases their God Allah. More, Islamic terrorists invite the death of children by placing their military and political headquarters in residential areas which they know their enemies will strike.

In the Western world, too many young women believe that sacrificing a child before its birth will appease their angry boyfriends or relatives. Leading thinkers and politicians have aided and abetted this ritual.

Get thee hence. Read it, and weep.
