In these days when we see thousands of Wahabist Muslims riot and kill just for the burning of their holy book, it makes one wonder if, in that sect, the book is worshipped far more than the God it speaks of.
In my lifetime we Americans have gone from Freedom of Religion to Freedom From Relegion. Seventy years ago it was the Jews who were gassed, just for being a Jew. Today is the Christian, who is villified just for being a Christian, in a country founded on the absolute freedom to practice one's religion without recourse.
Cardinal Dolan, bless his American heart, is speaking out about that very subject. Personally, I agree with everything he says in the question of the federal government attempting to instill socialist values in law.
Will it be that we Christians, including we Catholics, have to stop turning the other cheek and rise up as the Wababist Muslims do everytime a percieved wrong is even thought about their sect? It appears that is the only way we are going to regain our country. In Maryland, a colony originally founded by Roman Catholics, today has homosexual marriage as a law. That is how far we have gone to date. What is next?
Today, our church is being pummelled by secular law, by a group called the ACLU, which was started by a still carries the mantle of total Communism.
As Thomas Paine said in our War for Revolution, "These are the time that try men's souls".
So, I, for one Christian, Jew, Catholic, say that we can tolerate it no longer. I say, "Tell them like it is Cardinal Dolan". It is time for us to rise up and take our freedom back, by force if necessary.
"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
No law shall change that. No law shall come into a home and dictate how that home shall be conducted. No law shall come into a church and dictate how that church shall be conducted.
That is our American Dogma and thus it shall remain regardless of who occupys the government of WE THE PEOPLE!!
Cardinal Dolan speaks for me and all Christians Jews Catholics against a repressive occupation of our central government. Over nineteen hundred priests were killed in the Nazi concentration camps along will over six million Jews. We shall never let that happen again.
Amen to what you said! :thumbsup: And to what His Eminence is saying, too! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
About time we Catholics stop lying around like a cheap rug and RISE UP!
We're supposed to be part of the CHURCH MILITANT, for heaven's sake!
Were we not given the Sacrament of Confirmation to be made SOLDIERS OF CHRIST?
