Should Pro-Family-Values Americans self-deport?

The American media doesn’t want us anymore. To what country could we go? The market is ripe for this new opportunity.

I recommend mainland China where you can support forced abortion as a state sponsored sporting event.

Who are these pro-biotics Americans who will not give up the slave labor priced goods from China just because there is a little forced abortion under a one child policy? Do you mean those who fail to see how similar the development of ISIS after the failed U.S. support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt appears to be to earlier problems in South-East Asia and, especially, Kampuchea (Cambodia)?

Are these the Americans who you suggest should emigrate? And, exactly what criteria should be made for the determination? Perhaps we should listen to all of the phone conversations they make and see if any “trigger” phrases are used? If an American is discovered to be using “trigger phrases” on telephone conversations that the government wiretaps should they be given a plain brown envelope containing instructions on how to “self-deport?”

We would not want despotism on our shores – so, let’s monitor every phone call for “trigger phrases” to make sure we can find the persons who need to “self-deport.”

Not too long ago, I would have suggested Ireland; but the whole world has gone mad and is more determined than ever to kick God of it. Poland might be ok, but it would be a better idea to stay and fight the good fight. The LameStream Media is not as popular as it would like to think of itself, and if all of the prolife people run away, who will stand up for life?

Where would you suggest going? And how bloody of a war will it be to overtake the area you want us to live?

This is missionary country. Stay and keep spreading the truth.

God bless,

I’m still stuck on what market. Antarctica?

No where.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father."

Matt. 5:13-16

Leaving? Bad idea. Bad theology.

How about God’s country.

Seriously, think yourself first as a subject of the kingdom of Christ and take seriously the mandate He gave us, to spread the gospel. No country is immune from sin.

But has the “whole world” really gone mad? I don’t think so. A relatively few at the top are steering this ship. Notice how they’re not asking to divide the country in half and ask everyone to pick the side that aligns with your values and move there to enjoy being surrounded by like-minded people. They know they need to convert everybody. Muslim extremism is just an extreme reaction against the direction of what we see on the magazine covers in the grocery stores.

I prefer a beach, but Russia has to be looking at us and thinking they can turn themselves into the romantic America of the 80s if they can clean up their media, clean up their corruption and create more free markets. Just sayin.

Love you man, but love-of-self is killing marriage and the family and defeating romantic love-of-others. They’re slowly picking us off one by one. Charitably helping others has become politically correct sacrifice for young people, but many won’t get married and have kids of their own because it’s too much of a sacrifice. See the irony? Apparently, they don’t see how they have been owned. The media culture is more powerful than our churches. ISIS isn’t blind.

Here is too much parable, or in terms of blind sheikhs, too much code for my card deck to interpret.

Politically correct sacrifice of young people – is this a Georg Soros goodthink wordplay? What is the ironpan you are building up on?

Owned … is there rent to own in the spiritual realm? How does the true sacrifice of sacramental marriage and the concept of ownership go together? Children who are a valid presentation of the fecundity of marriage are “owned” by God - parents are only allowed to borrow them for some time. Make good use of that time.

Perhaps thinking in terms of ownership instead of responsibility and stewardship is why you make a claim to own a church. Perhaps letting go of “our churches” and allowing these to be “Our Father’s” churches would help in recognizing how the authority of any human institution comes only from above. Above, is not to say from coercion by the largest government body but from the Kingdom of God that Jesus taught us was at hand.

Jesus trumps blind sheikhs, ISIS, mass media and is truly present in the “media” of the mass - The Blessed Sacrament. Turn on to Eucharistic Devotion more often and into television media culture less often to realize the only power that is Truth.

Could you be a little more specific and some examples of what would drive you from the USA? :shrug:

I’m saying that many young people will be kind, loving, charitable, tolerant, etc, toward others (love of others) because they have been told it is the politically correct thing to do, but those same traits don’t seem to be carrying over to romantic marriage and parenthood since marriage rates are dropping and single parenthood rates have risen. Where is the “kind, loving, charitable, tolerant, etc,” toward spouse and kids (love of others)?
