Well, folks, I’m not sure if you have been following the news lately, but if you oppose abortion or homosexuality in the near future, you are going to have a hard time making a living or leading much of anything at all these days. I see the GSAs are in full swing too, at Catholic schools.
The noose around our necks is starting to tighten. That is just the reality of staying true to Jesus and his Church these days.
And what has been our leadership’s reaction? In a word, capitulation. It was capitulation on the GSAs in Catholic schools. And now it’s basically capitulation with Justin Trudeau. Oh sure, there will be the obligatory letter of “concern” , maybe even a little bit of condemnation. But, let us all be realistic, folks, in a few weeks, it will all blow over. It will be business as usual. Justin will go back to being a “devout” Catholic and receive Communion….sitting in the front row of the Church no less, while the homosexual bulldozer will tighten its grip and squeeze out any remaining dissent from its agenda.
It’s as plain a day, and yet we are, as a Church, in a kind of denial. This denial is a kind of sickness. In particular, it’s the sickness against the Cross. We don’t want pain or confrontation. So we raise our objections diplomatically, but do not risk anything that would cause our current situation to change or put it at risk. At the heart of this sickness is a lack of Faith.
And so we go on. Controversy after controversy which chips away at our freedoms…until one day….there is one less blogger blogging; one less Faithful teacher teaching; one less pro-life politician.
Fade to black…without even a fight.
We don’t even have the guts to tell pro-abort politicians that they are not Catholic…we don’t even have that consolation. They’ve even taken over our name and identity.
Pro-Choice Catholic. Gay and Proud Catholic. The new identity. The new reality.
