Kill the boys: It was legal
I listened as this was read at Mass this morning. It struck me: This action was legal. It was ordered by the king. It was the law of the land.
Kill the boy babies.
I immediately thought of abortion.
It's legal. It's the law of the land.
In biblical Egypt, it was done after birth.
We haven't gotten to that point - yet.
Just because something is legal does not mean it's right or moral.
Dear Lord, forgive us for what our laws allow.
