Why suicide is a sin
Early Friday morning, a Manhattan couple committed suicide by jumping to their deaths from the upper floors of an apartment building off tony Park Avenue.
According to New York police, both the man and woman left suicide notes referencing their children who were still in the apartment, and asking they be cared for. The man’s note reportedly contained the statement, “We both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.”
Yet they could afford to live one block off Park Avenue, and two blocks away from the iconic Empire State Building?
And, no doubt, their multiple children can afford to be without both their parents.
Maybe the parents felt relieved of their divine responsibilities by that horrible recent English court ruling (in the Charlie Gard case) that “children do not belong to their parents.” And, after all, children are little more than evolved blastocysts, so their welfare is of little regard.
One has to wonder — and the authorities really ought to investigate — whether the parents’ “issues” included being impressionable enough (and certainly, narcissistic enough) to be induced to “jump because of Trump” as a way to make a political statement. Because in the progressive Petri dish of Northeastern cities, this might just be the way to “win the competition” for the greatest event of virtual signaling.
Throw in the tendency of many adults now to be overmedicated, or out of balance, and you have a truly vulnerable segment of the population, ripe prey for predatory activists eager for a news event or “false flag.” Anything for revolution!
What happened this morning is horrible. Can we be so sure it isn’t an accident?
