Requiem for America

 Our nation has not been defeated by a foreign power—but something of its soul, its grit and its vision certainly have been, at best, tainted by our present federal government and our Supreme Court.

In its latest ruling on the right of gays to be legally married, the Court has put another nail into the coffin of our existence as a nation born and bred in Judeo-Christian values.

Of course, there are well-meaning people who support the right of gays to be married—in spite of the fundamental reason for the existence of marriage: that one man and one woman enter into a holy covenant to love and support one another and to bring children into this world.

In our present age, far too many people consider personal “happiness” and “fulfillment” as the motivation to do everything from eating lunch to robbing a bank to destroying another person’s reputation to desecrating the God-given bond of Holy Matrimony.

Someone, before this evil-bred ruling of the Supreme Court re gay “marriages,” opined that Christian churches and Jewish synagogues would face persecution if they obeyed God and not this infamous ruling of the Supreme Court.

I recently told some friends, “I believe in America as long as America believes in God.”

Our nation hangs in the balance, looking to Congress for protection of our religious freedom, freedom of conscience in our private, public  and professional lives.

We who believe must stand for what God wants of his people. How can we ever help other nations become free if we, in our own nation, are fettered by confusion and wrong-mindedness?

Oh, how I want once again to be able to believe in America as I once did.

    Hi Henry,

    I agree with you and think this is the beginning of a cleansing. Unfortunately our church leaders refuse to speak boldly about the spiritu battle that we are witnessing. They are not teaching how this will kill the soul and many will perish. This isn’t just about America; this is about the holy Catholic Church. There aren’t enough people that have the spine to say what we believe and we pander to sin. It’s sad indeed, and the Lord weeps. We need Rosaries.

    Henry – Right on. Ken
