Hypocrisy Is Not The Worst Sin

No, seriously. It's not. The worst sin (and the first) is pride. Full-blown pride will lead to the unforgivable sin. The only sin God cannot forgive is the refusal to repent. If you think about it, that makes sense.

Some people take a sick joy that the 17-year-old daughter of a politician who advocates for "abstinence-only" education had sex and got pregnant. Yeah, that makes sense. Because allowing her to mutilate her body, or the defenseless child within it is obviously better, right?

I'd love to hear an explanation on that one. We'll never get one, because it's not about truth or reality for such people; it's about preening. If I can tear others down, maybe I can silence my seared conscience, and the Law written on my heart.

Teen pregnancy (and fornication) is bad. You know what's worse? When it's compounded by murder. I rejoice that some young girls and boys who make mistakes have strong families who uphold them. Would that our society did the same!
