He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. - Psalm 23:3

A Dark Passing Cloud

In 1973 when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in the infamous Roe v. Wade case, pro-life forces warned that this decision placed us on a “slippery slope.” It is true.

A funny thing about sliding down a slope is that sometimes you cannot perceive you are moving.  If you have no outside points of reference nor any friction or vibration under your feet, you would not know you are sliding.

I have had that feeling on an airplane. You insert your sound-isolating earplugs, and on those days when the sky is crystal clear, you sometimes feel like you are not moving. But then you see another plane in the sky or a cloud, and it becomes a mile-marker to remind you that you are indeed moving.
