I pray Justina will be free and DCF on hold pending a thorough investigation by the time this posting sees publication. That investigation needs to include Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard University (of whom the hospital is a creature), and the Star Chamber that passes for the Juvenile Court in Boston. The hue and cry being raised today may well have achieved that…
Americans need to stand for the freedom we have too long taken for granted. I am not talking about violence, but about witness. I have written about the Peter Weir film, “Witness”, in this space before. In the film, corrupt and well armed police are stopped in their tracks by hundreds of unarmed and pacifist Amish farmers who gather in silent and prayerful witness. Hundreds (and perhaps thousands) of Americans need to surround Boston Children’s Hospital – peacefully – and demonstrate – peacefully – until Justina Pelletier emerges from her prison and into the arms of her family. This needs to be the beginning of a pattern of determined massive resistance against government running amok, or – as my own mother used to say – the inmates running the asylum. It needs to go on until sanity is restored–and the arrogant experimenters cast out.
American Blacks were freed from Jim Crow, the Philippines were freed from a dictator, and Eastern Europe was freed from communist/socialist terrorists by millions who rose in peace and refused to bow any longer to the tyrants. Jesus Christ set the whole human race free from death in the same way. But here is a tip – turning to Him is the only way we find the courage and the grace to stay in the game until it is finished.
