preserve life itself
That is precisely the point many of today's "trendies" are missing. Whether or not God exists (no-one can prove or disprove it!) the Judaeo-Christian heritage has provided the basis for Europe's human culture and devleopment for well over two millennia. Sure, there were problems --where aren't there any? -- but it has created a fundamental structure and set of values which have provided a basic moral compass that has persisted to this day. All the ad hoc utopias -- the French bloodbath, the café ideologies of rich middle-class Jews (Marx & Engels), the attempts to put them into practice (Lenin, Stalin), the half-baked beer-hall demagoguery (Hitler, Goebbels & brown-shirt thugs), even the 1960s/70s counterculture hippie revolution -- have all come and gone, but not before leaving a sea of human misery in their wake. Now we are facing the pansexual onslaught promoting perversity, test-tube babies, surrogate mothers, trannies, free condoms and abortion pills to school children, etc. That too will eventually pasas, but the damage to society, the family unit and individual victims it leaves behind is impossible to predict. Let's not forget that in their own dayeach of those utopias proclaimed to all and sundry that this time we have hit on the perfect, one true, proper, viable solution....only to produce more disillusionment and regret. For all its shortcomings, the Judaeo-Christian ethical system is based on common sense, advocates restraint, provides stability and has helped to calm the precarious, oft-turbulent waters of the modern world.
