Its easy to see where this is going; the gov’t goes anti-Religion and puts those with religious affiliation in the position of being anti-gov’t, if only by implication. So, what’s next? Loyalty oaths? The wretched secularists are intent on marginalizing the devout to the point of near extinction.
Interesting thing about this however is that God has had an interesting way of dealing with the Anti-God types in the past; the Old Testament indicates that in their unbridled pursuit of secular values of earthly wealth, power and dominion of their fellow humans allways ends in their personal, very personal, destruction. God made this human existence profoundly simple; God is the ultimate and only authority and his laws, while simple, are mandatory for the preservation of the earthly human body and the eternal soul. The secular humanists ignore this, deny this, rail against this at their ultimate peril.
From what I’ve seen however, the sad thing is that once captured by the lure of the secular humanist philosophy, people are near impossible to talk to. The so-called “Liberal” elements in Western societies have so fully embraced and propagandized their societies with this philosopy that its become near untouchable and its agenda is soaked through the education process such that its nearly seamless in its application. It isn’t that it isn’t questioned; its incoporated so thoroughly into daily activities in the schools that it isn’t an apparent issue.
The UK presents a fascinating case study of the perils that the secular humanists encounter in their societies as a by product of their wiping out of any thing Godly in those societies. In England for example, their health care service is suffering exhorbitant strains because of record high alcoholism rampant throughout the culture. Having no purpose in life, no hope beyond this shabby earthly, materialistic existence, the English seek solace, seek to fill the void of emptiness with booze in mass quantities. So now their Health boards are recommending, as a fix to the problem that exorbitant taxes be imposed on alcoholic beverages. That might work to some extent, but it points to the fact that the Liberal Elites are utterly blind and clueless to the underlying problem and they are so because they’re invincibly ignorant of the root cause of the problem, that being the fact that human existence without God as the central focus of life is intolerably miserable and pointless. And the Liberal Elites react as they always do when confronted with a problem that threatens their “Greater Good”, i.e., their manufactured, centrally controlled human society. They impose more controls over personal behavior and become ever more intrusive into peoples daily lives. And we know where this ultimately ends up; the Nazi regime in Germany, the brutality of Stalin’s Soviet Union.
This has the potential, if not the probability of ending very, very badly for all concerned. All we can do now is daily pray and do daily penance in seeking God’s help, mercy and guidance. I’m hopeful and I’m actually expecting we may well witness a Marian intervention in the form of another miraculous apparition. Let us pray we live long enough to see it.
Meaning that we could very well see a second American revoultion or civil war in our lifetimes, unless something of a Heavenly miracle takes place.
Very good post!
More external planning by the rats in charge = Less real life for the rest of us.
Freedom is where “it” is at, subject only to God’s simple, moral, timeless rules and truths.
