PERHAPS I’M JUST TOO OLD OR EVEN INEPT, BUT THE DICTATES SLAMMING CHURCH DOORS WAS WAY TOO CONVENIENT FOR THOSE WHO WAIT TO SEE IF THE LATEST CAVE IN IS LEAVING AN OPEN DOOR TO MORE RADICAL ANTI-CATHOLIC ACTIONS that have sat on their desks for years.
Our stupidity is failing to investigate the true motives and the forces at work behind their agents. We ignore Satan to our peril as we so often do. There is little need to crush the church with the rules propagated to society in general and in any case the list of secular businesses and activities still running uninterrupted goes on and on without the slightest rules. But the churches are of course are hotbeds of revolutionaries who need to be slammed shut even though they readily self regulate minimal attendance.
The church refuses to face the gospel truth that Satan is happily at work crushing them one step at a time. many of the rules don’t apply to churches anyway but we locked the doors before it was even suggested by the law. We were way too busy to sit down with the enemy and point out what we do and what we don’t within the law.
So us good Catholics drive to and enter the drug, grocery and liquor stores without a whimper as we drive by padlocked church doors where we once visited the Lord in every war, disaster, and pandemic in years gone by.
When this is over, he “law” is ready with a list of regulations specific to churches what were authored by Satan and passed on to his hordes of legal aids and agents. We will be cowering behind the church doors begging for a hearing and by then it may be way too late. Well, when the law tells the church to say or do nothing more to protect life – pointing out that the Church has no right to interfere with legal law and rights. Then the courts will argue ad infinatum as we will watch the constitution be totally raped of the right to life as coming from God.
