Truth peeked out from under Katie Couric’s skirt…CBS moved to snuff it out as well.
What caught the eye of the Freepers was the idea that Abortion was being used by a Columbine dad to explain why life is viewed so cheaply these days. But what caught my eye was the Dad’s observation that this country is in a moral free fall. Naturally Katie Couric had to issue a disclaimer that such talk was repugnant.
Moral free fall? Nah how could that be possible when there are no morals. When the very idea of morals is so very low class. Right and wrong? How can they exist when we are just a process that occured accidently. A group of chemicals brought together by chance. Why should anyone worry about little ole morals when nothing matters in life today except that each of us find our maximum fufillment? Self esteem dear boy that is what is important. Morals, right and wrong…haha. Sucker!
As part of its new evening news format, which Couric hosts, CBS News features a “free speech” segment which allows a wide range of people to comment on issues and headlines of the day.
CBS News featured Denver resident Brian Rohrbough, whose 15-year-old son Daniel was killed in the Columbine massacre. In his interview, aired nationally on the program, Rohrbough said abortion has caused a dimmer view of the sanctity of human life.
“I am saddened and shaken by the shooting at an Amish school today and last week’s school murders,” Rohrbough said. “When my son Dan was murdered on the sidewalk at Columbine High School on April 20th, 1999, I hoped that would be the last school shooting.”
“Since that day, I tried to answer the question why did this happen?” Rohrbough added.
“This country is in a moral free fall. For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum,” he explained. “We teach there are no absolutes, no right or wrong. And I assure you, the murder of innocent children is always wrong, including by abortion.”
“Abortion has diminished the value of children,” Rohrbough, who is a member of the board of directors of Colorado Right to Life, said.
