Oh crap....Here in Massachusetts, the Governor is at a women's health/equality rally knocking Catholic beliefs, but does a photo op and invokes religion with Cardinal Sean O'Malley in regards to the children/teens at the border.
I was going to say, yes, mocked and detested, under attack on every front, and then - surprise! Here! Please help us with these illegal kids, you'll take them, won't you?Without skipping a beat. Hobby Lobby? Now help us with this.It's bizarre.
This was how the Crusades got started. Of course, back then, the West had courage and convictions. Now we're so post modern that I'm not sure even a 9/11 repeat would stir us to action.
I also agree with your points - we're used and dumped all the time by most politicians, particularly those on the left.
We're seeing something else here - a variant - and it is organized by very leftwing ACORN-like entities, they're moving into and using the churches for a whole new kind of 'community organizing' and it includes telling the people that they can't talk to elected officials because they might be intimidated, and angrily kicking out three elected officials who attended the meeting, and countered some of the claims (the steering agenda) with facts... like clarifying what 'infrastructure' is. Be aware, it's a big movement, and designed by the same people who in their next breath hate and despise 'people of faith.' Tthey are actively figuring this is a workaround for them.
Patriarch Louis Sako told AFP on Friday: “Christian families are on their way to Dohuk and Arbil,” in the neighboring autonomous region of Kurdistan. “For the first time in the history of Iraq, Mosul is now empty of Christians,” he said.--- Al Arabiya
Trigger, I misread that as "Christian families are on their way to Dunkirk." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F47B4O5mrCo
I also worry we may hear a modern echo of the famous words transmitted back to the British people from the beaches: "and if not...", taken from Daniel 3:17-18.But we have this promise: "I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you..." (John 14:18.)As hard as it may be for us to accept, and I will be first to confess it is very, very, very hard...Martyrdom is a gift.
