Hungry

Little Alfie Evans has gone 36 hours without being fed. Think how you would feel if you skipped two meals and imagine what this is doing to him. In England they'll arrest you for harsh language towards certain groups or for having a pocket knife but the government will starve a sick baby to death. People are calling on Queen Elizabeth to say something but there's no point in that. It's widely rumored that her father was euthanized  and so was one of her uncles who was a child at the time. England is said to be the mother country of the euthanasia movement and committing suicide in some circumstances has long been looked upon with approval. It's part of the upper class culture. One of he saddest things about this whole tragedy is that the archbishop of Liverpool where the Evans family is from has not offered even a weak word of comfort to them. There is an Italian priest with the family but apparently no  priest from their own diocese dares come say a prayer in front of the hospital much less attempt to visit the sick.  Archbishop McMahon may not realize but I suspect that he's scandalized many people both Catholic and those who might have become Catholic.

I believe it was Elizabeth's grandfather, George V, who was euthanized, not her father George VI.

Another element to this diabolical situation. God help all those actively involved and those who consent by their silence. May God have mercy on them!
