Christians supporting same-sex marriage also support other moral vices, by a wide margin, compared to Christians who oppose same-sex marriage. This shows us a serious tear in the moral fabric of Christian Culture
We support vice, indifference, and pave new paths to disorder...all in the name of love. Disordered love.
All over the Church, throughout the Catholic culture, we're replacing the real with the synthetic. Whether it's fake bells, fake candles, or a "synthetic faith" in the Catholic heart, we sometimes favor convenience over authenticity.
The culture is addicted to pleasure, comfort, and partying. But that pleasure-addiction is leading to suffering and calamity.
For too long Catholics have chosen silence over telling the truth, because we've been crippled by a secularized idea of tolerance, and an imbalanced understanding of Charity
We teach our children to say "Please" and "Thank you" from a very early age. Alongside of that very basic ethic of good manners, we should also teach them to be courageous!
Every now and again, we need to be reminded of basic truths which have been forgotten about, as we slipped further into moral darkness. Someone hit the lights!
We check mirrors all day to make sure we look "well ordered" on the outside. But we don't often look within ourselves to make sure we're well ordered on the inside. Catholics, and The Church need a reflective perspective, and look deep within ourselves and see what's out of order, and needs to be put right.
The ACLU is once again working its black magic in an attempt to force the Catholic Church to provide abortions to illegal immigrants. And in the Church we respond to that by reducing the truth to a constitutional debate. That's just not good enough!
An atmosphere of fear is plaguing the Catholic Culture. We must counter it with Faith. Faith leads to hope. Hope leads to action.
