Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “From today’s Pile of Prep you’ll find this at The Imaginative Conservative website yesterday, Joseph Pearce, who is the author of one of the latest and best books, a biography of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. It’s on my reading list. It’s all too often forgotten in these heady days of socially-engineered change that children are always the bottom-line. Their absence leads to an aging population in the short-term, with all the associated problems that this causes, and will lead in the longer-term, which in hindsight will seem like no time at all, to the complete collapse of our so-called civilized society.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: From today’s Pile of Prep you’ll find this at The Imaginative Conservative website yesterday, Joseph Pearce, who is the author of one of the latest and best books, a biography of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. It’s on my reading list. I haven’t gotten it yet to read it but I will. Pearce writes this, “The Silence of the Lambs.”
In the historical and often hysterical debate surrounding the legal definition of marriage, there is one crucial class of people whose voice has not been heard and whose fate and future will be affected profoundly by the radical changes being proposed and initiated.
It seems that the whole marriage debate has been concerned with the rights, real and alleged, of adults and has failed to address our responsibility, as adults, to the millions of children who will be impacted by the changes to the law, now and in the future.
Paul Amato of Penn State University is unequivocal in his summary of the negative impact of the breakdown of the traditional family on the healthy development of children:
“Research clearly demonstrates that children growing up with two continuously married parents are less likely than other children to experience a wide range of cognitive, emotional, and social problems, not only during childhood, but also in adulthood.

It’s called America Alone written by Mark Steyn back in 2006. Steyn does the numbers on what I just finished talking about. He doesn’t get into the ecclesiastical part of it, which I think is also necessary. The fact that we are so reticent to offend anyone by, [mocking] “We don’t talk about religiosity in public anymore. It offends people. All it does it get people in fights.” That’s because people are arrogant and ignorant. Arrogance and ignorance of the Almighty is not going to get you very far in the afterlife. [mocking] “I don’t believe in the afterlife.” Okay, fine. Good luck with that and it makes perfect sense as to why you don’t see any problem with not creating the next generation and having willy-nilly abortions and all the other things we talk about here on this show, and having marriage acquired by or meted out by edict of law and not by religious sacrament or religious sacred ceremony by oath and affirmation. That makes total sense. Pearce concludes:
Make no mistake, children will be the biggest losers in the headlong abandonment of traditional marriage and the traditional family. Like lambs to the slaughter, future generations of children are set to be sacrificed on the altar erected to the god of sexual gratification. They are the voiceless victims, screaming in the vacuum of a loveless society. Whether we know it or not, or whether we acknowledge it or not, we stand condemned by the silence of the lambs.
