WATCH: This Video of a Down Syndrome Man Meeting His Dad at the Airport Has Gone Viral for All the Right Reasons

Published

on

If you ask family members of people born with Down Syndrome, most of them will tell you they can’t even describe what unbelievable joy and love there is in their house.

While the anti-life left would like you to believe that Down Syndrome is a burden, an affliction, and devalues the life of those diagnosed with it to the point that it’s perfectly acceptable to terminate their life in the womb, anyone who has been loved by someone who has DS will certainly tell you their life is just as valuable as our own.

You can see the fingerprint of our Creator on full display at the pure, unfiltered love a middle-aged man with Down Syndrome showed to his father when they were reunited after five days apart, which had been the first time they’d been separated in decades.

53-year-old Matt Cobrink has rarely been apart from his dad, but recently couldn’t pass up an opportunity to meet his favorite baseball player. So, he risked the separation anxiety to go ahead and make the trip.

The trip lasted five days, and when he returned everyone in the family knew it was going to be an epic reunion. Sure enough, it didn’t disappoint. Matt’s sister posted the video to her Facebook page, and people everywhere immediately began to share and spread the video, which now has 2o million views.

This is a scene that, if many progressive eugenicists had their way, would no longer be seen. But since Marcy shared it to her Facebook page, it’s been nothing but inspiration and hope for those to whom it is deeply personal:

It’s incredibly sad to think people capable of such love are the target of extinction by some nations around the world. Iceland recently bragged about “eradicating” Down Syndrome, when the only way that is possible is murdering everyone with it.

People all over the world have now been reacting to the video with such emotion and sending messages of gratitude for sharing the sweet moment. Especially for parents and family members — and expecting mothers — who may have a child with Down Syndrome. “It gives them hope for their children,” she told People, saying countless have written in to tell her it was “so nice to see something that’s happy instead of things that are negative,” concerning Down Syndrome.

What a beautiful way to share the undeniable humanity of those who have Down Syndrome.

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
