The Silence is Deafening and Deadly

Sometimes Love needs to be tough. This is one of them...

A number of decades ago one could hear a rally cry, "I am woman, hear me roar!"

It was the cry of Western Feminism. Indeed, we heard that cry from all corners of Western society. How vocal they were!

Women worked hard to establish themselves as equals within their respective society.

Today, Western Feminism is still around, but strangely silent in the face of our sisters who are being persecuted in the Middle East and other areas of the world.

Daily, many women in Middle Eastern countries face persecution. From genital mutilation, to being held culpable for a man's lust by being forced to cover her entire self as if she were something evil. Just let her try and raise her voice in some form of protest to protect herself and see what kind of reprisals, possibly even death, she would have to endure.

Lately, the persecution has turned deadly. Key women in Afghanistan who have been advocating for women's education, equality, and freedom from violence have been murdered. They faced down their oppressors by continuing on with their advocacy for equality every day. It cost them their lives.

Again, our Western feminists are quiet in the face of all this.

Where is Western Feminism's rallying cry for their sisters in the Middle East now?

That silence has turned deadly.

But then, it has been deadly since Roe hasn't it?


Perhaps we have stumbled upon Western Feminism's Sacred Cow. Our sisters in the Middle East cherish all life within the womb don't they?

Tough questions coming back to the Western Feminist from her sister in the Middle East no?

God have mercy on us for our complicity in the deaths of our sisters we do not support and in the deaths of the innocent within the womb. Their blood screams to Heaven for justice!

Western Feminism, where is thy equality now?

Oh how thou must bow before thy Sacred Cow!

Pax vobis (Peace be with you),
