It's Not About The Cash

... or, more musings on joining the American Cristados movement.

Jonah Goldberg, in Liberal Fascism, defines fascism as a religion of the state. I didn't get it until last Wednesday's Fortnight For Religious Freedom event here in San Diego.

Condoms, bought on Amazon in bulk, cost about $0.25 apiece. Assuming you and your partner split the cost and you have lots and lots of sex, you can cover your annual usage of contraceptives for less than $80. For $80 a year, the government is going after the Catholic Church. This is not about the money, this is about conformity of moral thought. If you worked for a Catholic school, for example, your pay would certainly cover $80 a year in condoms. No one is being "denied" anything.

The Obama Administration offered the following compromise. Catholic institutions would be exempted, where a Catholic institution was defined as one that hired mostly Catholics and served mostly Catholics. This places us in de facto ghettos. As the bishop said in his speech on Wednesday, we don't serve others because they're Catholic, we serve them because we're Catholic. The exemption was all about isolating our institutions from the rest of society.

In Illinois, Catholic adoption agencies have been told they need to serve gay couples or they could no longer work with the state. The Catholic Church doesn't have anything like a monopoly on adoption services. Gay couples have plenty of choices of where to go for adoption. This was not about giving gays more resources, this was about enforcing conformity of moral thought.

This is all about the State attempting to crush rival religions.

Viva Cristo Rey.

No, you panicky, ignorant, bedwetting, anti-religious bigots, we're not planning on shooting anybody. This is just an image showing solidarity with our predecessors.

If you'd like your blog post linked, leave it in the comments and I'll get it up as soon as I can. A link back would be most appreciated.

There is no God but the State, and Obama is his prophet.

Sickening. Here is a prayer I will be saying each day from now until Nov. 6th:

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

KT, standing with you. Great post.

You're absolutely right. This is about government assuming a moral high ground. It is the establishment of a humanist state religion in which traditional morals are evil and ignorant.
