Today we went with my grandson’s class to see Seussical. After seeing this I was prompted to send this email to Iowa Senator Jack Whitver, the Republican leader of the Senate who failed to allow a vote on a personhood amendment:
Today I had the opportunity to see the performance of Seussical, the musical about the stories of the famed Dr. Seus. You might recall the story Horton Hears A Who where an elephant goes to great lengths to protect unseen creatures called Whos. A poignant line from the story is, “A person’s a person, no matter how small.” I realized that this is a pro-life message!
I thought it interesting that it was an elephant, the Republican mascot, that fought to protect the Whos. Maybe years ago, when Dr. Seuss wrote the story, he might have used the elephant because he thought that the Republicans fought for the protection of unseen babies in the womb. The elephant says, “An elephant is faithful, 100%”. But alas, in real life, the Republicans are not faithful. You have lied to us for decades. You’ve become just like the asses. But, at least we knew where they stood. They didn’t lie.
There is a God and one day your adventure here will end. As one entrusted with authority before God, you will be made to give an answer. I hope you think about that. There is a horrible evil at work in America and you enable it. At the climax of Horton’s story, as everyone is about to burn the speck of dust on which the Whos dwell, the Who all raise their voice and yell, “STOP!!!!”
