Denizens, amidst all the ranting & raving you see here, there’s occasionally got to be some Good News thrown in for measure.
It is with that in mind that I’m especially pleased to bring you this blurb from the Department of Up Yours, Biased Arsewipe!.
Despite facing threats of disqualification, a 12-year-old girl took first place in a speech contest when she eloquently argued for the rights of unborn children – after an offended judge quit.
“What if I told you that right now, someone was choosing if you were going to live or die?” the seventh-grader begins in a video recording of her speech on YouTube. “What if I told you that this choice wasn’t based on what you could or couldn’t do, what you’d done in the past or what you would do in the future? And what if I told you, you could do nothing about it?”
The girl, a student at a Toronto school identified only as “Lia,” continued:
“Fellow students and teachers, thousands of children are right now in that very situation. Someone is choosing without even knowing them whether they are going to live or die.
“That someone is their mother. And that choice is abortion.”
Out of the mouths of babes.
Damn. Just, damn.
The school principal and teachers called Lia’s presentation the “obvious winner” – but the judges suddenly disqualified her the following day “because of the topic and her position on abortion,” her mother said.
Lia’s father later revealed that the judges had a “big disagreement.” One was offended by the speech and voluntarily stepped down while the others reversed their earlier decision – declaring her the winner.
Because she wouldn’t back down, she was successful.
This is what it’s going to take, Denizens. People of good conscience who are unafraid of the potential consequences.
As the saying goes, “Fortune favors the bold”. We are not called to be successful, only faithful.
Do right, and fear no one.
God bless you, Lia, sweet fearless warrior.
