Have you guessed? If not, take another look.
If you answered "liberal issues", you are
correct, but that is *not* the answer I am looking for. How about you
look again from a spiritual perspective? I'll wait...
Got it? Hopefully you figured it out. If not,
Good. I trust that you, being wise to Satan's
machinations, have figured it out. Now tell me if you don't agree that
what's behind them all is Satan's plot against human life. Every single
issue listed above results in fewer human beings inhabiting the planet.
Since we humans are made in the image and likeness of
God, Satan hates
us with a fury. What could please
more than having fewer images of God in existence on earth? To further
my point, have you ever noticed that in actual exorcisms Satan goads
people into taking their own lives? If you are not familiar with this
observation, look for it yourself in fact-based Catholic
Satan literally tries to get people to kill themselves. Satan vehemently
hates us, remember? Not only do those who follow his suicidal
suggestions put themselves at great risk of being lost forever (since
suicide is, objectively speaking, a mortal
sin that is
probably unlikely to offer one a sufficient opportunity for true
repentance), but it also leaves one less hated human being on earth for
Satan to deal with.
Likewise for the other issues above.
illicit use of 'NFP') is sinful and both prevents new lives from
being created, and some methods can also cause the death of newly
unbaptized) persons. Big wins for Satan.
Sinful, intentional sterilization prevents new
lives from ever being created. Another big win for Satan.
Abortion is sinful and takes the life of a child
who, almost certainly, never had the opportunity to be baptized. Yet
another big win for Satan.
Homosexual activity, besides being sinful,
inherently means no new lives will be created, likewise for relations
between 'transgenders'. Notice that each person committed to homosexual
relations or ''transgenderism'' is one more human being who isn't likely
to ever bring forth new life (freaky/immoral science projects aside).
Satan is surely pleased at this - plus there is the added benefit to
Satan of the great affront against God who made them male and female.
Still more wins for Satan. [As an aside, I think perhaps Satan whispers
in peoples' ears that they are homosexual or 'transgender' - note how
many of such people may revert to normalcy if given time & loving
support. Maybe exorcisms could be tried for those affected by these
issues and for those who propagate them. Intentionally or not, they are
furthering Satan's agenda, not God's.]
And then there are some married couples in our
age fearful of 'climate change' (even though many scientists disprove it
as a farce) who may purposely choose to not bring forth children with
the ridiculous notion that fewer images of God on earth (humans) will
help 'save the planet'. Satan wins again. Likewise, many couples delay
marriage, which naturally results in fewer children. Again, Satan wins.
Even married couples *not* fearful of 'climate change' that marry early
usually have smaller families today. Huge wins for Satan.
And, of course, suicide & euthanasia (or
'physician assisted suicide') are being widely promoted globally (even,
diabolically, 'glamorized' in movies & the media), leaving the
individual (objectively) in a final state of mortal sin. 'Instant' wins
for Satan. There is also the mortal sin of 'physicians' who kill their
patients. Double win for Satan. Similarly,
transplantation involving vital organs may (sinfully!) require the
sick patient to be killed in order to supply another person with a
'usable' organ. More victories for Satan. [If a vital organ is taken
from a living donor (very likely), this directly causes their death,
which is the point of this article - Satan's plot against human life.
Although technically, at the end of a vital organ transplant, another
person may remain alive for a certain number of additional years due to
the transplant, they may be alive by illicit means that may potentially
involve numerous people in sin (e.g. consenting donor, consenting
donor's family, medical staff, consenting recipient, consenting
recipient's family). And such people may be unlikely to (or can't)
repent. Therefore, if the transplant is 'successful', Satan may be not
see the temporary extension of one life as a loss for himself, in light
of the potentially grievous sins involving numerous individuals - not to
mention the one life that is taken immediately.]
Furthermore, there is the issue of feminism,
including 'career women', which I think is one of Satan's greatest
modern plots. He cleverly keeps women distracted from what they alone
can do - bring new life into the world - in favor of a paycheck. It
reminds me of the Garden of Eden when Satan went directly for the woman.
Today's woman may think she is doing something that will benefit her
(e.g. earning a paycheck), when in reality she is likely throwing away
(or at least hardly taking advantage of) the precious treasure of her
ability to bring forth many new eternal souls into the world that will
require her nurturing & upbringing (according to Catholic teaching, the
primary purpose of marriage). These children that might have been her &
her husband's glory for all eternity in
will never exist - they were exchanged for a paycheck. Note that it is
essentially 'required' that 'career women' have few children as the 24
hour per day time limit makes it impossible to properly birth, nurture,
teach, feed & care for, and watch over numerous children (or, as I would
argue, even a single child) while also maintaining a career. Satan gains
Lastly, as an added bonus for Satan, besides any
sins committed by actual parties involved in activities like those
other persons who participate in, support, or propagate immoral acts may
also be guilty of grievous sins. Still more for wins for Satan. Yet
Satan is our mortal enemy. He vehemently hates God and continually seeks
our ruin. Lamentably, MANY people today are falling into Satan's traps
against human life, either personally or by their assistance or apathy.
But it doesn't have to remain this way. We can change things. Let's
