Our evening tranquility was shattered by blaring sirens and lights flashing on the wall display of our Retard-o-tron™. The blinking letters on the wall said WorldNetDaily. WND was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award, thus that jolly logo displayed above this post.
The Retard-o-tron™ directed us to an article by Joseph Farah, the founder, editor, and CEO of WND. A few months ago we wrote about another article of his — WorldNetDaily: Evolution Causes Suicide. Now he’s writing about suicide again: Suicide in the age of Obama. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Guns don’t kill people. People kill themselves. That’s the story from the American Journal of Public Health, which reports that since Barack Obama was sworn in as president in 2009, the leading cause of death in America has been suicide.
Hey, in Farah’s last article, suicide was evolution’s fault. Now he seems to be blaming it on Obama. Does that mean he’s forgiven Darwin? Well, not exactly. You’ll see:
During the entire administration of George W. Bush and earlier, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death by injury. But that all changed in 2009, with the rate of death by suicide rising by 15 percent over the past 10 years, while death by unintentional motor vehicle crash dropped 25 percent during the same period. What’s the take-away here?
Well, what’s the answer? Let’s read on:
It would be easy to attribute the rise in suicide to the economy, and I have no doubt it’s a contributing factor. But there’s much more to this story than meets the eye.
Farah teases for a while, and then he finally gets to it:
I believe the trend reflects a deep and growing spiritual emptiness in a culture that is more depraved and sinful than at any time in its history. Too many people just don’t find any meaning in life.
Spiritual emptiness — now there’s a great answer. But where does evolution fit in? That’s coming:
We are told from the youngest age in state-run schools that human beings are merely the result of billions of years of evolution from lower life forms and random mutations. There is no Creator God who loves us and to whom we are accountable. There are no laws higher than those government imposes on us – no sin, no ultimate, objective moral code. In fact, human beings are a blight on the planet. It would be better off without us – or at least with a lot fewer of us polluting the air with carbon dioxide and overheating the Earth.
Do I have that about right?
Sounds right to us! He continues:
Furthermore, in those same government schools, prayer and Bible reading are prohibited, but explicit instructions on how to have promiscuous sex without consequences is mandated. Abortion is subsidized, while adoption is prohibitively expensive – in the unlikely event you can find a child to adopt.
Truly horrible! Here’s more:
Government is fine with pornography. But purity and abstinence are discouraged. In other words, right is wrong, up is down, black is white and left is right. And we sit here and wonder why people are killing themselves.
It’s all so obvious now! He ends with the same timeless solution he offered in his earlier article:
Americans need to get right with God. They need to find out what He requires of them – why He created them and how much He loves them. They need to be in genuine repentance for having turned away from Him and whored after other false gods and pursuits. If Americans did this, they wouldn’t be taking their own lives in record numbers.
So there you are, dear reader. Abandon Darwin and porn. Embrace purity! It’s the only way to avoid suicide.
