Matt Walsh chimed in on the eruption of outrage concerning the photo that went viral of Kendall Jones, a young beautiful Texas cheerleader, holding up the head of a lion in Africa that she killed. Overall I agree with him, but I think there is a deeper point that he is missing, and I think it is the answer to the seeming contradiction of how one can happily and vehemently support a woman’s so-called-right to butcher the child in her womb (including recording it and posting the video on the internet) but be utterly outraged and devastated by a young woman killing a lion and posting a picture of it. The answer is beauty. We all have an inherent desire for beauty. We are born with it and we cannot escape it. Those who attack what is beautiful will inevitably hold to other forms and things of beauty to compensate for the beauty they destroy. The more they destroy, the greater the destruction the more skewed and unhealthy their attachment to something else becomes. This applies equally to the “suicidal nihilists” and the “pro-life zealots” to which Mr. Walsh reduces us.
