America - A Post Christian Country

It's official, America has turned the's now a  Post Christian Country.

With the ruling of the US Supreme Court to erase DOMA from the books, to delete traditional marriage from history should put a chill down every parents back. It should bring immediate awarness to every Catholic that the teachings of the Catholic Church will come more and more under attack.

No longer will you be able to express our Catholic teaching on marriage without being cited as a bigot, homophobic or spewing hate speech.

Why do I say this? This is not my opinion, these are the words of the Chief Justice Kennedy.

“The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and injure those whom the state, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity,” Justice Kennedy wrote. “By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment.”
He said the law was motivated by a desire to harm gay and lesbian couples and their families, demeaning the “moral and sexual choices” of such couples and humiliating “tens of thousands of children now being raised by same-sex couples.” 

 DOMA Ruling    

So Justice Kennedy can look into everyone's heart and mind and see bigotry and persecution and intent to harm children.

Wow...I think we're off the deep end.

Just because this is the law of the land doesn't make it a good law. WWII German made it law to persecute Jews but that was hardly a just law.There are many bad laws, like Abortion, the killing of children. Where is Kennedy in condemning that?

So what's the course of action for good Catholics? What are we to do....give up?

Absolutely not. We should continue to voice charitably the purpose of marriage, the common good it gives our communities and our nation and mostly unity of children to their mother and father, to mom and dad to each other.
