On The Inauguration

Today, the United States inaugurates a new President. It is a time to reflect on the purpose of government, which is the protection of the rights of the citizens, rights which – as the Declaration of Independence states – come from God rather than from government. Senator Hubert Humphrey once said, (quote) “The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and handicapped.” (end quote). Let’s pray for our new President, that he may understand that to push for more abortion rights would be the most harmful thing he could do, and would turn the purpose of government on its head.
