Waging War on Women
Our society has been waging war on women for a long time now with practices like abortion, no-fault divorce, and so on. But now our degradation of the dignity of women is nearly complete - "Panel to Recommend Allowing Women in Combat." Of course, women have been in combat situations throughout the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, but there was at least a pretense of some kind of line that should not be crossed. That line is now going to be erased. Pay attention to the moral reasoning swirling around this issue. It is completely typical of a relativistic worldview. But of course, although it is sad to see such shallow reasoning, it is even more devastating to see womanhood degraded from something to be honored for its distinctive, God-given qualities to something to be thrown into the war-machine and ground up in the name of freedom.
