“The challenge facing you, dear friends, is to increase people’s awareness of the importance of religious freedom for society; to defend that freedom against those who would take religion out of the public domain and establish secularism as America’s official faith.” Saint John Paul II, Baltimore, Oct. 8, 1995
Something to PONDER: When we American sense that our FREEDOMS are diminishing… then it is almost too late to do anything about it. Remember… Our governmental representatives, Corporate America, and even the Mom and Pops of America….CANNOT vote God out of existence, UNLESS and UNTIL… we acquiesce. Unless and until… we AGREE to it… as citizens. Our PROBLEM is we CITIZENS just sit back…. And by our SILENCE, and by VOTER APATHEY…. We allow the DECISIONS makers to do ‘their thing.’ We have… only ourselves… to BLAME. Put the BLAME where it belongs… on our own backs.
Solution: Demand TERM LIMITS. Anyone…. Yes… ANYONE who has been in office more than two terms… should be VOTED OUT! …..They’re ‘getting RICH on our dollar.
A few lines of scripture are worthy of thought…. Mark 10:42-45 – And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Another worth one that puts in clear perspective…. Matthew 23:1-12 – Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat, so practice and observe whatever they tell you—but not what they do. For they preach, but do not practice. They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long…
Reminder: We NEED to let our governmental leaders KNOW that it is we… the CITIZENS of America… who are in CHARGE.
