Containing Evil

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 21, 2018

         HOW DOES ONE CONTAIN EVIL? I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THAT SINCE THE FLORIDA SCHOOL MURDERS LAST WEEK. LAWS CAN HELP, BUT NONE CAN REACH THE HUMAN HEART.

         EVIL HAS BEEN ON THE ASCENDENCY IN AMERICA FOR MANY YEARS. IN SOME WAYS, IT HAS NEVER LEFT US. STARTING WITH SLAVERY, TODAY EVIL MANIFESTS ITSELF IN ABORTION ON DEMAND, SAME-SEX “MARRIAGE,” “TRANSGENDERISM,” ADULTERY, PORNOGRAPHY, FILMS AND TELEVISION CONTAINING WORDS AND SCENES THAT WOULD HAVE REPELLED A NATION IN THE 1950S, BUT TODAY ARE TREATED AS ART AND IMPOSSIBLE TO REGULATE.

         WHAT INDIVIDUALS AND NATIONS TOLERATE THEY GET MORE OF. WHAT THEY REJECT AND CONTROL THEY GET LESS OF. WE PROMOTE EVIL AND ARE SHOCKED TO FIND EVIL GROWING AMONG US.

         C.S. LEWIS SAID IT BEST: WE HAVE MADE MEN WITHOUT CHESTS; WE REMOVE THE ORGAN, BUT DEMAND THE FUNCTION. WE CASTRATE AND BID THE GELDINGS BE FRUITFUL. WE LAUGH AT HONOR AND ARE SHOCKED TO FIND TRAITORS IN OUR MIDST.

         EVIL MUST BE CONTAINED OR, LIKE A VIRUS OR TUMOR, IT WILL GROW. WHAT ARE WE DOING TO CONTAIN EVIL? LOOK AROUND. IT APPEARS WE ARE NOT DOING MUCH AND THAT IS WHY EVIL CONTINUES TO GROW. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
