the health of a nation, you can make up your mind observing the laws it
follows. Even though, many times, it is not in the masses’ power to
adopt or change some specific principles, there is always the reaction
that the people have towards them.
Not long time ago, we witnessed the adoption of the law regarding the legalisation of abortion. Actually what happened was the legalisation of a reality, of a sad reality, which anyhow was “legalised” by itself. Practically, no one needed this law in order to do a thing, which is done with serenity by the most of the women. That is why the legalisation of this form of crime was rather an exam for cruelty, which only was failed by some of our Parliamentarians.
During last year, it was a lot of noise because of the law regarding the studying of religion in the school. As a member of the Moldavian Mitropoly’s commission, established for these affaires, I had many discussions with the representatives of the Ministry of Education. These expressed with a lot of sincerity their antipathy towards the idea of studying the religion as a subject matter in the school.
Honestly, departing from our realities, neither am I a supporter of teaching religion in the school. But my motives differ from those of the Ministry of Education. They consented that everything be thought in the school, even such a monster as “ the moral-spiritual education” proposed in the Ministry’s project, but only not religion.
Maybe we got accustomed or maybe we do not realise, but the fact that the Gospel frightens us more than the blood of unborn children, is a sign of alienation. Nikita Stanescu expressed once the deepness of his saddens through the following verses: “My sadness is so great, that it hears the unborn dogs barking at unborn children”. The world of these unborn people becomes greater and greater. I think if we could hear what Stanescu heard, we would find out that there are not enough unborn dogs to bark at all unborn children. Because the people learned to do abortions, but the dogs not yet.
