I enjoyed Coren's statement regarding abortion as I have often said the same but in a different way. "At conception a child has a unique DNA and genomic character and is already unlike anyone who has been conceived or born before or anyone who will be conceived or born afterwards." What a statement to outline the beauty of life! Coren goes further in a later chapter to point out the hypocrisy of secular culture when it comes to the disabled. We pass laws and fine tune our political correctness when it comes to those afflicted with a disability, but raise no objections when abortion is now being used as the primary vehicle to abort babies known to have disabilities or Down syndrome. How we seem to care for the disabled but are the first to allow laws to prevent their existence.
Under the chapter "Church and State" Coren reinforces a point Pope Benedict XVI eloquently made that faith is not a private matter. "Truth is not geographical. If it's true in a church or a home, it's true in a parliament or a courtroom. If it's true, it's true." There is no such thing as leaving your faith to your personal life. Not sharing truth is harmful to our society, and contradicts our duty from Christ to spread truth.
