On Catholic discouragement with the 2011 budget...
While going through the Catholic portion of the blogosphere I've come across a fair diversity of opinion regarding the 2011 budget compromise. Some folks are of the, "now let's roll up our sleeves and get to work" mindset, too many others are sounding like C3PO of Star Wars (We're doomed, DOOMED I tell you!).
Hey, it's for the remainder of fiscal year 2011. That boils down to six months, half a year. Not much time for anything significant.
Nope, Planned Parenthood has not yet been defunded and if past history is any indicator we can bet that the up-or-down vote in the Senate on Thursday will be a victory for Moloch. Got it.
Yep, that ban of federal funds for abortions in DC is only a return to what we had until recently. Not really something to count as a gain, considering how hard it was to get that.
So what the hell were the doom & gloom crowd expecting anyway? Riproaring success? A thorough public spanking of Moloch's Minions?
We fight until we're exhausted, take a break and then come back for more. Thats how it goes. This will never end. We'll be battling the Culture of Death right up to our last breaths. It's always been that way, always will be too. Check the Bible if you don't believe me. Check Church history for whats happened in the past.
Christ told us this when He warned that no servant was greater than his master, so that if He were persecuted we could expect more of the same. That means we'll be in the trenches for life.
If it won't be abortion, it'll be embryonic stem cell research. If it isn't that it'll be gay marriage or euthanasia. The beat goes on.
We live in a secular world, that means one given over to the Prince of Darkness (no, not Tim Curry in "Legend" either). All we can do is try to live in it without being of it. End of story.
Now it's time to get to bed. I've got to go stand outside a Planned Parenthood satellite office tomorrow with my homemade sign that reads, "End Abortion Now". Short and to the point. What always amazes me is the high number of "thumbs up" signs I get.
Right on all counts.The world is on a slippery slide and the angle of the slide is creeping towards 90, but that doesn't really matter. We are called to be salt and light until the end. Keep up the good work, there is only one that we need to answer to!
Bill, amen to all of that.
Go for it! I do not want my tax $$$$ going to kill innocent babies! We will fight this fight to the end even if it means death to us!!!
