The liberals always start out the same way to solve the curse of immorality and wasteful life. They always propose legal pressure reliefs that will permit a little bit of wrongful life which will solve big problems. So if we legalize some lesser dangerous drugs, people will experience relief and move on with their lives in a positive way.If we tolerate some “tragic” abortions, we will reduce the problem of uncontrolled sexual engagement.
At the same time, we seem to refuse to demand proof that these reliefs work! Of course, they don’t work. Bad living when tolerated, leads to more and worse ways of abuse and the world has countless evidence of this truth. After very few years, the legalization of pot – for example – is resulting in more and worse drug abuse and on and on.Abortion that was promised as safe and in-frequent has become the worse way of cruel murder in the history of mankind.
Now our church is “playing” with the idea of easier ways to co-habit and divorce – in hopes of improving the ideal of marriage and family. It is as if “and the truth will set you free” as taught by Jesus needs to be quieted down! This won’t work either. The ideal or solid stable marriage and family must be proclaimed and supported even more now.
The response to deception and lies is always the truth!
THE GREAT VICTORY?
A temporary respite – a blessing [with crossed fingers] but not a word that would seek Gods blessing and give Him thanks.
I thank our Church for the few scattered courageous clerics from Deacon to Archbishop but the operative word is “few,” isn’t it. The words you include make a strong statement that the Church has little effect on Catholic decision making when we see how many Catholics indeed voted for the continued massacre of children – the continued justification and legality of the gay agenda in all its’ filth – the continued advance on suicide, euthanasia and “mercy killing” which are championed by Democrats and their standard-bearer, Hillary.
The only way Trump’s victory might mean something to our nation and world will be if Christians and Catholic-Christians are led to their knees in thanks and commitment to life. Call it skeptical, but I heard not one scintilla from the Christian Church this morning to temper my skepticism.
We are lazy and in love with our toys – we are the rich soil to be used by the smart evil liberal which plans to rule over us starting in 2017 and there is good reason to believe this scenario.
Many elections have been lost over my lifetime, by people who want a Godly America – that of Washington, Jefferson, Adams,Lincoln – the founders of our once great nation.
Satan rose up in China and gave us dirt cheap toys to occupy our minds, schools, media, Hollywood and on and on – toys to steal what little time we might have had to take back America.
Satan has likely won the current battle as evidenced in the reality that this election is a jousting match between ungodly politicians while the few good ones are being crushed. We are watching the rewriting of the constitution into the framework for a secular state set against God.
Thus I pray for our grandchildren – that thay may become the new “minutemen” of the future that will revolt against Hillary and her legions of evil doers bent upon destroying God and His children.
We are wasting a few months of 2016 in which Christian martyrs will hopefully take up the fight and be slaughtered, I fear. Will the real Christian Church become infected by the spirit of these martyrs? Will we waste our energy on ungodly politicians? Let us pray and join those who will decide to stand for God – regardless of the cost.
The lights went out on 9/11/01 We failed to turn them back on!
Carry on brother.
ONE LIKELY OUTCOME OF THIS ONGOING ONSLAUGHT – WHICH ITSELF IS RACIST [WHERE “RACIST” IS DEFINED MORE BROADLY AS DISCRIMINATORY VERBAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE AGAINST ANY DEFINED GROUP OF PEOPLE [SUCH AS COLOR, SERVICE PROVIDER, SEXUAL, STATUS, AND ANY SUCH NUMBER OF GROUPS] WHICH ARE TARGETED SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE MEMBERS OF A GROUP THAT BECOMES DEFINED AS THE “ENEMY” OF SOME OTHER GROUP[S].
POTENTIAL MAY WELL BE:
THE INCREASED ACQUISITION OF WEAPONRY BY LARGER AND LARGER NUMBERS OF CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS OF THE NATION AS THOSE PEOPLE ARE EFFECTED BY FEAR OF THE LOSS OF POLICE AND OTHER SERVICES SUCH AS FIRE AND MILITARY. THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED – MORE THAN ONCE – SINCE THE 60s IN PARTICULAR WHERE WIDESPREAD RIOTING AND LOOTING AND PROPERTY DESTRUCTION TOOK PLACE AS VARIOUS “LEADER” TYPES INFLAMED DIFFERENT GROUPS TO LAWLESSNESS IN A KIND OF FRENZY!
WE HAVE HAD AN ADMINISTRATION THAT HAS CONTINUOUSLY FOMENTED VIOLENT KINDS OF SPEECH AND BEHAVIOR BY RUSHING TO CONDEMN THOSE WHO HAVE SO FAR PROTECTED ALL OF US OVER OUR HISTORY – TO THE POINT OF BREAKING DOWN THE PROTECTIONS WE HAVE ALWAYS RELIED UPON BY IRRATIONAL, INSTANT, AND CARELESS THINKING AND ACTIONS – BY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD KNOW BETTER OR DON’T CARE BUT DON’T SEEM TO GIVE A DAMN.
WE ARE ALL LOST – IN MY FIRM BELIEF – IF WE DON’T RECOGNIZE HOW POWERLESS WE ARE UNTIL WE REPENT OF OUR UNCIVILIZED BEHAVIOR AND COME BACK TO GOD!
If one assumes [which is a logical response] that our Holy Father has written this exhortation under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and furthermore, as such, it should lead the faithful to a new understanding of the manner in which divorced/remarried[civilly] can be brought more fully into the Church, then the all time tradition of Church teaching needs a very full exposition of how it was misunderstood since that time when Jesus addressed divorce.
In my belief – supported by manifestly excellent and faithful teachers in the Church – the Teaching and Tradition of the Church cannot have changed because that would proclaim that for 2000 years the Holy Spirit has allowed a wrong understanding and practice to continue with the constant affirmation of the Hierarchy starting with the Popes. If the Holy Spirit has indeed permitted 100 generations of Catholics [20 years per generation] to be misled and that misleading has caused massive numbers suffering for countless divorded couples.
I then deduce for myself that the Holy Father has erred in this letter and it is not a true Teaching for the Church; or it is misunderstood by everyone who reads it as I do, and needs to be clarified for the Body of Christ.
Of course, regardless of all I am saying, there is now afloat in the world a mass confusion as to what the Church wishes to promote as an alternative pathway to the sacraments for those of it’s members who are divorced without annulment and remarried civally.
Pray for Clarity.
THE “NEW” GOSPEL REALLY SOUNDS GOOD IN GENERAL BUT IN REALITY IT IS A REWRITE OF THE GOSPEL WITHOUT GOD AND HIS SON, JESUS WHO PROCLAIMED THE ORIGINAL GOSPEL.
I READ THIS ARTICLE AND THE REFERENCED ARTICLES – ALL OF WHICH SOUND WONDERFUL AS HAVE EVERY REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, SOCIALIST, COMMUNIST, ATHIEST ETC AND ETC. THIS ELECTION SEASON, BUT THEY ALL SEEM HELL BENT ON PROCLAIMING THE SECULAR GOSPEL AD NAUSEAM.
NOW I KNOW – AND THEY SEEM NOT TO KNOW – THAT THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE ONLY TRUE GOSPEL – IF WE ARE TO ACHIEVE THE LOFTY GOALS THESE NATURALLY THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SIN IN THE GOSPEL THE SECULARISTS PREACH. I ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY ARE MOST SINCERE AND BELIEVE THAT THEIR BRAND OF GROUP, COMMUNITY, AND NATIIONAL LIFE WILL GIVE US THE HEAVEN ON EARTH WE ALL HOPE FOR. SADLY, IT CANNOT AND WE WHO KNOW THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH THAT CAN RESTORE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THAT ONLY THE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS THE ABILITY TO RETURN US TO PEACEFUL AND RICH LIVES.
SO THESE PREACHERS OF THE “NEW” GOSPEL ARE CRUEL INDEED AS THEY PROMISE THAT WHICH THEY CAN NEVER PROVIDE OR ACHIEVE. CROWDED VENUES AND STADIUMS WHERE CITIZENS CHEER ON THEIR FAVORED CANDIDATE WILL BE EMPTY AND COLD TONIGHT AS THEY WERE LAST NIGHT… AND UNTIL WE BRING BACK GOD AS LORD OF ALL, WE WILL NEVER HAVE A CHANCE, PERIOD!
THE UNITED STATES IS FULLY TO BLAME FOR HAVING OPENED THE BORDERS TO UNDOCUMENTED AND ILLEGAL WORKERS THAT WE WANTED TO SATISFY THE NEED OF DIRTY WORK OF FARMING ETC OVER A NUMBER OF GENERATIONS. WE HAVE NO MORAL RIGHT AT THIS STAGE OF THINGS TO DECIDE WE CAN NOW THROW THEM ALL OUT BECAUSE THE MARKET HERE AND IN THE WORLD CAN FUNCTION WITHOUT THEM.
I AM A CONSERVATIVE BUT IN MY BOOK, THE POPE IS CORRECT. WE MADE THIS MESS AND MORALLY, WE CANNOT NOW – IN EFFECT – PUNISH THE VICTIMS OF OUR GREED OVER GENERATIONS. WE OWE THEM BEFORE GOD THE POSSIBILITY TO STAY IN AMERICA. WE USED THEM AND SCREWED THEM FOR GENERATIONS. WHERE DO WE COME OFF SPITTING ON THEM AND SEEKING TO RUIN THEIR POOR LIVES? NOT IN MY BOOK. AS FRANCIS HAS SAID, BUILD BRIDGES FOR THEM AND GET SERIOUS ABOUT SEALING THE BORDER AGAINST ILLEGALS – IF WE REALLY MEAN IT!
OF COURSE, OUR LEAVING THE BORDER LOOKING LIKE SWISS CHEESE FOR ALL THESE YEARS HAS ALSO LET IN THE WORST OF THE WORST TO PREY UPON AMERICA AND ITS YOUNG PEOPLE WILLING TO TRY DRUGS AND THROW AWAY THEIR LIVES. IF WE THINK WE CAN CONTROL THE WHOLE WORLD AND CANNOT CONTROL THE DRUG NIGHTMARE WE CREATED, WE ARE PATHETIC AND OUR POLITICIANS ARE FULL OF HOT AIR TO BOOT!
SO, I AGREE WITH A PATH TO RESIDENCY FOR THESE POOR IMMIGRANTS. WE OWE IT TO THEM AND THEY PAID FOR IT WITH THEIR SWEAT AND TEARS SINCE THE DEPRESSION! THEY DESERVE IT NOW AND NOT HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE GET SERIOUS ABOUT THE NEW GENERATION OF ILLEGALS.
