10. THE COLOR OF DEATH IS PURPLE

In the Netherlands, the country where I live, we currently (may 2001) have a government consisting of three parties. This coalition of Social Democrats, Liberals and Democrats is known under the name "the purple coalition" and is presently in their second term. The binding factor in this government is the Democrat party with the name "D'66". It was their ideal to have a coalition without the Christian Democrats. The Queen of the Netherlands, a woman with the name Beatirx, also played a very strong part in forming this coalition, almost 8 years ago.

In the time that I write this, our country, the Netherlands, goes through very hectic times. The nation has become world news recently, due to the fact that the Netherlands has the dubious honor of being the first country to have legalized "euthanasia". Euthanasia, a word invented by the Nazi's during the second world war, literally means "soft death". The nazis used it to remove "unworthy" life. I have seen a propaganda movie from the nazi's in which they promoted euthanasia for incurable sick people. Hitler stopped the program after there was too much critique. Please note, I am not talking about the concentration camps, but about euthanasia, doctors killing patients that suffer from an incurable disease. In our country, a doctor can now legally kill a patient, supposedly at the patient's request, when the patient "suffers unbearable suffering". Concerned people in the Netherlands have strongly protested against this law, neighboring countries are very worried about the events as well.

Where on one hand old people don't get the right care that they need, on the other hand we have a minister that advises old people to kill themselves. Just days after the euthanasia-law passed the parliament, the minister of "health", Els Borst, gave an interview in Dutch quality newspaper "NRC Handelsblad". In this interview, she stated that she had lost every contact with people that oppose this euthanasia. She used the same words as Jesus spoke on the cross (John 19:30), "it is finished" when asked about the law. Mrs. Borst told a story how she knew two women of age, "they were bored stiff, unfortunately not bored to death", she said about the women. She said the women longed for death and it should be possible, according to mrs. Borst, for such people to take a pill to commit suicide. Only a few days after a euthanasia bill passed the parliament, she wanted to go steps further. And although she said that she was sorry if she hurted anybody, days later she gets interviewed by the magazine of her own party, the D'66. In this interview she is asked what she thinks about the fact that some Christian circles find her the devil. She liked it apparently, because her answer was: "Yeah, interview with the devil, that's a good title for this interview."

In my country, when you ask people Who they believe in, the answer of many is: "I believe in myself". Many people have put themselves on the seat of God. We have abortion, which is basically a child sacrifice to the God we proclaim to be. We have euthanasia, the ultimate tool of self-determination. Man wants to be God.

And there is another God which is worshipped in the Netherlands. This God is called Mammon. It's the God of money. 100,000's of animals are brutally killed because of economical reasons. In the time I write this, there is mention of a Foot and Mouth disease that is spreading across Europe. This sickness, which is not even lethal for animals, can be easily prevented by vaccination. But the government doesn't want the animals be vaccinated, because otherwise the americans and the japanese will not buy our meat.

When I count all the wickedness that the dutch government is currently introducing to the nation, I can only think of one thing: the color of death is purple.
