Reader Opinion: Outrage

I was surprised at the recent uproar over a lion being shot in Africa by a Twin Cities dentist. Whether he knew that it was collared and considered a pet by the locals is still unproven, but I guess when it comes to animals you are guilty until proven innocent.

Also recently announced was the news that more than 10,000 babies were aborted in Minnesota last year with Planned Parenthood doing over 4,000 of them. With that announcement we heard only a deafening silence.

Maybe we should require parents to deliver their children and keep them until they're five. Then take them out in the woods, send them off running as fast as they can with a 5 or 10 minute head start and then hunt them down. But that would be barbaric, right? Better to ambush them in the womb with a forceps, then sell the salvageable body parts. My, how civilized we have become.

In Jeremiah 1:5 it states: Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Note the word "before."

How many "prophets" have we wiped out?
