Obama's dilemma

On Jan. 21, the 57th Presidential Inaugural Parade took place in Washington, D.C. It coincided with the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s march on Washington. King's theme was very noble — the civil rights of all.

Barack Obama refers to King as one of the great American leaders he deeply admires. I wonder how Obama's philosophy on human life would have been shaped if he had spent 20 years in the presence of Rev. King rather than the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

On Jan. 25, the 40th annual March for Life took place in Washington. Since Jan. 22, 1974, 55 million children have died in their mother's wombs.

Human behavior will not be changed by tampering with the U.S. Constitution through the executive orders of tyrants. The human personality is the problem. Ignorance of, or indifference to our own metaphysics, body/soul and human nature has wreaked havoc in the areas of mental and emotional health.

We are suffering the effects of spiritual starvation.

There is a world beyond sight, touch, taste — a world lost to the modern, frustrated souls wandering around aimlessly in our materialist society.

But that world, where God lives, is the most profound reality of life.
