I see the sad state our society is in and want to cry (and sometimes I do). Just this week, I saw three devastating headlines:
Alabama is being forced by a federal judge and the Supreme Court to disregard the will of the people. The American people believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. Justice Ginsburg says the American people are ready for so-called gay marriage. The fact that we repeatedly and clearly voted against it means nothing to elitists. They want it so the will of the people be damned. I am so grateful to Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for standing up to these fascists who do what they want but don’t care what the American people want. The legal elitists hide behind false interpretations of the Constitution while ignoring the laws of God and the will of the people.
Then I saw a headline concerning an outrageous ruling by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals saying the Obamacare mandate forcing Catholic and other institutions to violate their consciences is constitutional. These elitists really don’t know how to read the Bill of Rights, do they? The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. There is no right to contraception or healthcare for that matter. This will now have to go to the Supreme Court. Based on Ginsburg’s comments on gay marriage–we all know how that ruling is going to come out (pardon the pun) in June–I don’t have high hopes for what this Court may do on the birth control mandate.
Finally, because of the Alabama gay marriage controversy, Justice Moore was interviewed by CNN’s Chris Cuomo, whose ignorance of the Constitution is equal to the average federal court judge based on their conversation. Cuomo denied that our rights come from God. He said they come from man. Wow. He needs to read our founding documents. And learn to use his brain before he opens his mouth. Sadly, his ignorance is prevalent as political correctness has triumphed over reason and common sense among the elites.
You can see why I get upset. Expressing disdain for the negative news only gets us so far.
Therefore, I think we need education. To complement this blog, I am launching a new blog: Called to Conversion which has the theme Go and Sin No More. Look out for it on Ash Wednesday. Use this Lent as an opportunity to start your conversion process. We are all called to convert and to sin no more. That is where the world is going wrong. We don’t think we need to change. We expect God and nature to bend to our will. That is not going to happen. We have to change now before our culture finally implodes. If we as individuals live morally, we can change the world.
