God and Country

With all the chaos, hypocrisy and backwards thinking that we see today within the Church and our own Country, I've come to realize there are several similarities with the Catholic Church and America. Likewise there is a parallel with being a good Catholic and a good citizen of the United States. 

When America was first established it was under God and we were given the amendments as laws by which we were to abide. It was the same when Catholicism was established and we were given the Ten Commandments. These laws were not created as guidelines or suggestions that we could pick and choose, but as solid rules that were the foundation of something great; something we must live by. The Church has always had trials and persecutions just as America has always had tyranny and disorder, but in the chaos and confusion there has always been these laws the faithful have been able to turn to. The Ten Commandments and the Constitution have kept our Faith alive and our Nation great. So what happens when we refuse to obey these laws, these fundamental stepping stones that are the foundation of everything we know and love. What happens when we then proceed to have the audacity to try changing them?

Today in our Country, the people we have elected to be in control, are using their power to destroy America as we know it.  Being politically correct has now trumped the first amendment, freedom of speech, and they are pressing harder and harder for gun control, completely violating the second amendment, our right to bear arms. In the Church the corruption is the same. John Paul II, our so called "Pope" stated, "All men belong to a pantheistic Christ who is united to each man, whether he knows it or not, by virtue of his Incarnation."  He fully supported religious freedom, which contradicts the First Commandment, "Thou shalt not have strange gods before me."

These are just a few examples that show the break down of our moral and social principles.  If this continues, we will no longer be the land of the free and the home of the brave, but rather the land of the greed and the home of the slaves. Also, with regards to the Church, if we blindly follow the heretical teachings, and agree with everything they are trying to shove down our throats, we will be living a lie and walking down a dangerous road which could result in losing our souls. We should refuse to let this happen, and make a concerted effort to stop the mess we're in before it gets too much worse, 

We can we make our Nation and our Catholic Faith great again by doing our duties as a citizen and a Catholic.  We can all rise to the challenge and be a part in our community, vote for  politicians who will help in our struggle and most importantly, pray for our beloved Country. As a Catholic, we can uphold our values, follow the Ten Commandments and again, most importantly, pray.  We must be the change we want to see in the World, and by striving to do our part individually, we can mak ea difference for the whole. By prayer and sacrifice we can make our Nation and our Faith great once again.
