“You know, what I don’t understand about it is they’re [the media] all card-carrying liberals. When does the death of a child bother them? I’ve never seen them get so upset over the death of a child,” Rush Limbaugh said about the Casey Anthony verdict in his monologue on Wednesday.
“If the child had died, what, two years earlier in the womb this woman would be a star. She’d be a hero. And folks, I don’t think that is a cliche to say. And I don’t think it is as cheap attempt at humor. I think that while it may be uncomfortable to hear — one of the reasons it is uncomfortable to hear is that there is an element of truth in it,” Limbaugh added.
Rush told the media if they want to feel better, they should imagine that Casey Anthony had an abortion instead:
“You people in the media, if you really, really think she is guilty and you want to feel better about this just tell yourselves that she waited a couple of years to get an abortion and then you’ll feel better.”
“Abortion is brutal, [it’s] never characterized that way and the reason it is brutal is because there is an element of truth of it. I just wanted to put it out there. Pure and simple, nothing more.”
Death is still death, regardless of how it happened, and both victims and perpetrators will one day die. Lest any of us forget, all of those who die are subject to judgment. This is a perfect reminder to pray for the souls of those unborn children who have been aborted, as well as for Casey Anthony’s daughter and all other child victims. And we cannot forget to pray for those who commit these atrocities, whoever and wherever they might be.
† Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercies of God rest in peace. Amen. †
And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. (Luke 23:34, Douay-Rheims Version)
