Checking for dead links, I found a truly sad story unfolding at the blog I had chosen to exemplify Marxist exploitation of pipe-dream progressivism, Our Tomorrow. I had captioned the link Bearded Commie, just because I thought it fit better than the Pollyanna title Denny, the hippie looking writer, had chosen.
Now I feel sorry for picking on Denny and his blog. In one of the saddest blog posts I've read so far today, Denny describes his slide into the sin of despair. The title says it all: On giving up. I quote the self-proclaimed atheist's cry to a God he cannot deny:
I'd guess the planet would be best served by our extinction. If I believed in god that's what I'd pray for.Please read his pitiful post in full. Then offer your fellow blogger some encouragement; no one should feel this low, no matter what their opinions. Offer something more hopeful than the eco-religionist drivel his friends have seen fit to inflict upon Denny. Putting up solar panels won't help him. He needs the support only the truly hopeful have to offer. Have you got any hope to share?
I'm not a Catholic, but I have studied the faith in some detail. You won't find a better explication of the sin of despair than theirs.
