    Here is some disgusting quotes from Jefferson

    Were the Pope, or his holy allies, to send in mission to us some thousands of Jesuit priests to convert us to their orthodoxy, I suspect that we should deem and treat it as a national aggression on our peace and faith.” —Thomas Jefferson to Michael Megear, 1823. ME 15:434

    Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus.”
    -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp, 30 July, 1816

    In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Horatio G. Spafford, March 17, 1814

    Priests...dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of daylight and scowl on the fatal harbinger announcing the subversions of the duperies on which they live.-Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Correa de Serra, April 11, 1820

    this nation was founded by Christians on Christian principles. Hope you don’t have too much of problem with that, because I do believe it with all my heart.

    I think many of US FF's did the best they could considering their view and upbringing of what they considered to be Christian. The Calvinistic view of Christianity had many flaws and the influence of this view is why we have problems today when carried out in time

    In order to begin to fix a problem .one must recognize the flaws. There is nothing wrong with that, Jim

    The late +Bishop Fulton Sheen explains what I'm saying here very well

    First, the dream. Because our early settlers broke away from the political and religious quarrels, they assumed that they were going back into Paradise. Every ticket holder on the Mayflower and their early descendants thought they were coming to the Garden of Eden where they would meet Adam before the Fall.

    John Winthrop promised a "New City"; Whitman, Holmes and Thoreau described man in a state of innocence; Franklin wanted the Seal of the United States to be Moses dividing the Red Sea, showing how much we had departed from the traditions of Europe; Jefferson suggested the seal be the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night by which the children of the New Israel were led to the Promised Land. America was the land of milk and honey; its Frontiers were illimitable -- they could be pushed back and back, revealing new lands, buried gold and unlimited freedom.

    The Myth of the natural goodness of man gave the assurance of an ever-increasing progress. If a man did not become wealthy, it was because he was lazy. Cream naturally comes to the top, scum sinks to the bottom. The ethic of work glorified for us the Great American Dream that one had only to dig. Progress was an ever ascending curve: it was only the past that had to be left behind.

    Then the dream changed into a nightmare because our assumptions were all wrong. The dream was a reaction against European religious thought at the time of our Founding Fathers that man is intrinsically wicked. But the great religious traditions of the age never taught that man was evil, but only that his intellect was darkened and his will weakened by rebellion against God. Hence, newly found America could not be a Paradise where man could dream of unbounded wealth. Man is a weak creature whether you put him in a new United States or on the moon. But the silly notion that he is a god and America is a paradise is like trying to place a marble bust on the stem of a rose.

    Politicians during election time, capitalists who have made quick fortunes in oil and psychologists who blame environment rather than an evil will for the drug anti-culture still subscribe to the American Dream. And by doing so, they contribute to the Nightmare which we are now entering.

    The more you build up the expectations of a boy about the pleasure he will get from a toy, the angrier he will be when the toy breaks down. Telling youth that "America is greening" only angers them when they find it browning in the Winter of its discontent. Unbounded pride or what the Greek dramatist called 'Hubris', has in the second act brought a judgment and in the third act a fear of 'Ate' or disaster.

    In this Hour of Frustration when we transfer 125 billion dollars a year to the oil producing nations, which is equal to the entire farm crop of the U.S. in one year; when over eight per cent of the population is unemployed; when our manners become crude and only our gasoline refined; when we have the feeling we have touched the Last Frontier and yet unlike mice in a maze keep knocking our heads against it; when we are forced to get along with less -- when all these evidences of a broken dream are upon us, some try to drug the public conscience by telling them that Progress is still with us provided: First, we get rid of God; second, we preserve the right to climb into any bed; and third, that we be allowed to make money by pornography.

    What has happened is for the best. We have learned that a man's greatness does not depend on what he has, but on the recognition of limits. The moment we discover discipline, or the ability to limit our ego, our greatness surpasses anything in the past.

    -†- Fulton J. Sheen D.D., Ph. D., ‘Bishop Sheen Writes’; November 1975.

    GK Chesterton, Hilare Belloc and others understood this well as well.

    Why do the assertions of Genesis mean absolutely nothing to you?

    They mean plenty to me typologically

    You'll probably just say something cruel in reply, but I simply can't let this pass without asking.

    I have nothing cruel to say, the spirit within you is telling you something that is not from me

    I don’t have a soft spot for much of FF’s of the USA and their anti Catholic freemasonry agenda

    From Pope Leo

    http://www.michaeljournal.org/humanumgenus.htm

    Wickedly, also, but at the same time quite consistently, do those act who do away with the expectation of the joys of heaven, and bring down all happiness to the level of mortality, and, as it were, sink it in the earth. Of what We have said the following fact, astonishing not so much in itself as in its open expression, may serve as a confirmation. For, since generally no one is accustomed to obey crafty and clever men so submissively as those whose soul is weakened and broken down by the domination of the passions, there have been in the sect of the Freemasons some who have plainly determined and proposed that, artfully and of set purpose, the multitude should be satiated with a boundless license of vice, as, when this had been done, it would easily come under their power and authority for any acts of daring.

    Where better for such liars to spread their lies than on FR where people don't bother to participate unless they're conservative and agree with other Conservatives?

    The core of FR is a worn out rag of fools that bow to America's FF's as if thy were guided by the Holy Sprint in everything they did and think the statue of liberty given by freemason demons is approved by Christ.

    It has occurred to me that the elitists are the new world order. The elite Bush family member who graduates with an MBA from Harvard Business school or his PhD from Harvard’s Government School has much more in common with his counterparts in Shanghai, London, Moscow and Mumbai. They all run in the same circles, vacation together, and increasingly sit on the same directorates. They have nothing in common with us “common folk” whether we work in a shop in Calcutta, a factory in Chelyabinsk, or as an office manager in Liverpool or Indianapolis. When it comes to this group, labels like “left wing” and “right wing,” “hard liner” or “reformer,” or “conservative” or “liberal” are meaningless. They are statists first, and that means the power of the state transcends all. We don’t have rights, we are pieces of meat.

    God Bless you. you nailed this and are right on target

    Don't worry though, God is in control and love will win in the end

    but should become known that in the early Church Christians heard Mass and received Holy Communion every day. The Holy Eucharist was brought to them in prison as they were awaiting martyrdom by fire or the sword, or by being devoured by wild beasts. We turn to our own day. What Christ did during His visible stay on earth in first century Asia Minor, He has continued doing down the ages by the exercise of His almighty power available in His invisible presence in the Holy Eucharist.

    Catholic Christianity is unique in making demands on the morality of its believers that are beyond human nature by itself to live up to. The two hardest demands are the practice of Christian chastity and Christian charity. Combine these two virtues, and we begin to see why Christian marriage and the family require, indeed demand, superhuman power from God to remain faithful to for a lifetime.

    Here is a prayer to heal your condition of lack of wisdom due to your life circumstances

    Healing the Family Tree 3

    Heavenly Father, I come before you as your child, in great need of your help; I have physical health needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs and interpersonal needs. Many of my problems have been caused by my own failures, neglect and sinfulness, for which I humbly beg your forgiveness, Lord. But I also ask you to forgive the sins of my ancestors whose failures have left their effects on me in the form of unwanted tendencies, behavior patterns, and defects in body, mind and spirit. Heal me, Lord, of all these disorders.

    With your help I sincerely forgive everyone, living or dead members of my family tree, who have directly offended me or my loved ones in any way, or those whose sins have resulted in our present sufferings and disorders. In the name of your divine Son Jesus, and in the power of his Holy Spirit, I ask you Father, to deliver me and my entire family tree from the influence of the evil one.

    Free all living and dead members of my family tree, including those in adoptive relationships, and those in extended family relationships, from every contaminating form of bondage. By your loving concern for us, heavenly Father, and by the shed blood of your precious Son Jesus, I beg you to extend your blessing to me and all my living and deceased relatives. Heal every negative effect transmitted through all past generations, and prevent such negative effects in future generations of my family tree.

    I symbolically place the cross of Jesus over the head of each person in my family tree, and between each generation; I ask you to let the cleansing blood of Jesus purify the bloodlines in my family lineage. Send protective angels to encamp around us and administer your divine healing power to all of us, even in areas of genetic disability. Give special power to our family members’ guardian angels to heal, protect, guide and encourage each of us in all our needs. Let your healing power be released at this very moment, and let it continue as long as your sovereignty permits.
    In our family tree, Lord, replace all bondage with a holy bonding of family love. And let there be an ever-deeper bonding with you, Lord, by the Holy Spirit, to your Son Jesus. Let the family of the Holy Trinity pervade our family with its tender, warm, loving presence, so that our family may recognize and manifest that love in all our relationships. All of our unknown needs we include with this petition that we pray in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
