About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Should morality influence politics?

Periodically when I opine about abortion I'm told to keep my religion out of politics. That statement always puzzles me, if our religion/morality doesn't influence our entire lives then what damned good is it?

Father Longnecker has covered this topic on his blog. Here's his take. It's well worth the read.

No.

The next time someone tells you not to bring your religious faith into a political discourse, deck 'em.

Then ask if they're happier with the non-religious conduct.

I usually ask them how come their commitment to diversity and inclusion doesn't include me, and why my right to free speech isn't as valuable as theirs.

Which is exactly why I tell people,

"Yes, let's have no religious influence at all in government. So let's strip out the laws against murder, stealing, identity theft, perjury, etc

Is that what you really want? (people have stunned look)...that's what i thought, now shush"
