Catholic Defender: This Is Freedom
Consider the following statement:
Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC, a Professor of political science at Tulane University, states the “private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families,” and instead institute a “collective notion” that kids “are our children,” they belong to the community.
We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children: your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.
So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities,”
Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments,”
Is this freedom? Is this where our Country is heading? Do we really stand for the Red, White, and Blue today?
James 2:22-25 states, "Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror. He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like. But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does".
The perfect law of freedom is built upon the shore of true liberty where God is worshiped in true freedom. More than 1,300,000 people have died defending this very basic right to stand on that "perfect law" of liberty.
Today, there are those who want to forsake the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States opening us up for what President Reagan called "A thousand years of darkness".
America is the last bastion of freedom in the world.
Where do we go should America fall? What happens should America fall from within.
What was a threat 20 years ago seems to be everywhere today knocking down the wall of freedom one inch at a time.
They first took the scripture and prayer out of public school, based in the Secularist view of "Separation of Church and State", which does not exist in the American Constitution.
The Baptist Dansberry Association asked Thomas Jefferson who would be the State Church of the Land. Jefferson responded that there would be no State Church, but each person would have the right to practice their faith.
There has been a systematic attempt to erode our Nations Christian foundations, so much so that President Obama says "America is not a Christian Country".
He plans to widen the gap between faith and tradition from the American establishment.
I remember in the 1970's when nobody worked on Sunday because American's honored God's Commands, this was our foundation.
Christmas break is now "Winter Break" and Holy Week is no longer part of "Spring Break".
In todays public schools the progressives seek to eradicate anything Christian. Our institutions have renounced our history accepting homosexuality, Abortion, and Artificial Birth Control just to name a few.
Luke 4:18-19 states, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord".
The Church must not waiver during this crisis in America today.
The Catholic Church is celebrating a year of faith giving us the opportunity to get back to the basics.
Then the year of evangelization will begin. This is what true freedom really is.
To be free to live a love honoring God's Commands, To be free to help those in need, to help the sick, to heal the broken hearted, to visit the prisoner, to be free of sin. Freedom to lead our families and raise our Children to honor God and His Church.
We need to trust in God and have courage to pass through tomorrow the freedom that has been given to us. One Nation under God, this is freedom.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
Address to the annual meeting of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, (30 March 1961)
"We'll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we'll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness."
Next time you see a veteran, tell them thanks for their sacrifice for freedom. The following is taken from the movie, "Last Ounce of Courage", a truly inspiring movie. I highly encourage you to watch this. Here at Deepertruth, we have a true member who was attacked by the ACLU, Dr. Gregory Thompson. He chose freedom over their bondage.
