Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Yesterday, two women, Liam’s mother and her “partner,” were charged with murdering two-year-old Liam Fee in Thornton in March.
A week ago, Madison Horne’s mother’s male “partner” (not Madison’s father) appeared in the dock for two-year-old Madison’s murder in Kelty in April.
One month ago, Mikaeel Kular’s mother, Rosdeep Adekoya, admitted to killing her three-year-old son in Edinburgh and hiding his body in Kirkcaldy. Mrs Adekoya fell pregnant with Mikaeel while having an affair with a man from Leven who had a long-term partner. Neither her husband nor Mikaeel’s father were living with her when she killed her son.
These are our neighbours, our communities. Fife Council presides over a culture that produces child murderers and looks afar to pass moral judgments on foreign lands. We debate whether we’ll have more money in our pockets if a referendum passes next month, as if that is what really matters. Separate or not, if there is not national repentance, Scotland will suffer judgment. We’ve destroyed any real concept of the family, and we’ve killed our own children in the womb for years. Now we’re killing them after birth, too.
May God have mercy.
