I am only going to take a moment to delve into what I would define as madness that is being touted as some new spiritualism exalted as "Compassion."
|1.||a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.|
|2.||Archaic. to compassionate.
My view is as follows:
1. This subject needs to be addressed by the "Christian" world. Some folks are so heavenly minded that they are little earthly good. We tend to spiritualize everything with an air of superiority bordering on arrogance when we loosely equate our Lord and view how Jesus would act with "compassion" in any given situation. When Jesus confronted sinners in their sin, yes he did love them, and He also confronted sin and called for repentance. From the court of the "compassionate" I have yet to hear anyone condemn the fact that this woman brought 8 children in the world by means of in vitro fertilization, with the express intention of capitalizing monetarily. This is an aberration of God's intention for reproduction. Yet the"Compassionate Ones" do not mention that the woman was also already living on government subsidies and the compassion of her parents with the previous 6 children.
2. The treatments Suleman underwent to bear her children aren't cheap; they typically run from $8,000 to $15,000. Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that her doctor gave her the lower rate (as a volume discount), which would put her expenses, simply for conception, at $48,000. Suleman told a television interviewer that she covered those costs out of a $165,000 disability settlement she obtained after suffering a back injury working at a state mental hospital. Could not this money have been used to show "compassion" to her 6 children she already had?
3. "She also said she is not "on welfare," which is a bit of a semantic dodge, because it turns out she's receiving both food stamps and Social Security payments for two of her children who suffer from unspecified disabilities. She also told the interviewer she plans to "support" her family with federally guaranteed student loans while she pursues a master's in counseling. (One tries to imagine receiving therapy from this woman, but the mind refuses to form the requisite image.)Tim Hutton" Once again, I am not against the use of government assistance when one falls on hard times or finds themselves in a difficult situation but is it "compassion" to allow the insanity to continue.
Insanity has been aptly defined as doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. I call it Madness to couch our religiosity in "compassion" and not address the situation in the manner of, "Go and sin no more, less a worse thing come upon you."
In the same manner, is it "compassionate" to allow this obviously mentally unstable woman continue to abuse the children by dragging them before the world in such an atrocious manner? The Compassionate Ones cry out that the media is up at arms, and for once , rightly so,(in my honest opinion) yet they fail to realize that this woman can stop the media frenzy by simply going home and tending to her children. Still she tries to sell her story for 2 million dollars! I say STOP THE MADNESS!
To all of the bearers of compassion, I say to you, where is the "Compassion" for the babies? Remember the definition: a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.
Will the childrens suffering stop if this woman continues in this pattern of behavior. Will the suffering of other children aborted be stopped if doctors continue to look at babies as a product to be bought and sold , created to be destroyed? This is MADNESS!
IT IS TIME TO STOP THE MADNESS in the name of COMPASSION!
