Yesterday I watched the video of Robert George giving a speech to the Catholic Information Center. In the audience were some societal heavy weights like Attorney General Barr. Mr. George very clearly stated that Christians had lost the culture wars and that the only way to avoid living as a prisoner of war in our own country is to fight and win back the ground we’ve lost. He explicitly said that the progressives are our enemies and no compromise is possible. Finally. “I was blind but now I see!” Well better late than never.
This got me to thinking about what fighting back might look like. One thing I thought about is the various Christian denominations that have been hijacked from within by radical bishops. If the faithful still have the numbers then they should reassert the authority of biblical teachings and evict the LGBTQ clergy. And that goes double for the Roman Catholics. Their ranks are riddled with pedophiles and homosexuals masquerading as celibates. And they must also purge their ranks of atheists. Leave them to the Unitarians. But even if the faithful portion of the denomination is a minority, they have an option; to leave. They should leave en masse (let’s call it an Exodus). As the Bible says, “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.” And if that means leaving behind the fancy church building, the fat bank accounts and the support of the religious establishment, then all the better. All the clap-trap of the organization is a big part of the problem in the first place.
And another action that the churches can perform is pool their resources and hire some lawyers to pursue judicial remedies for the state and local policies that clearly violate the First Amendment. In the more godless areas of the country this will probably require appeals rising all the way to the Supreme Court but that’s what it’s there for. From my perspective this is one of the first things they need to do.
And the Catholic Church needs to reestablish its control over the schools and colleges that it claims to run and strip them of all instructors, courses, clubs and activities that openly support any practice that the Church knows to be evil. And just doing that will take a lifetime. There are states where the only way to accomplish this is to either to buy out the contracts of professors or wait until they retire. But it needs to be done. And if in the liberal states they aren’t allowed to make these reforms then the Church should separate itself from these colleges altogether. Religious education needs to be distinguishable from the paganism that is on display on every campus in America.
And the churches need to get back to providing support and counseling to the families in their communities. Sports teams, fraternal organizations, festivals and every other community activity needs wholesome and devoted people who have the time and the interest to knit people together. There is a terrible void in the lives of almost everyone in this country and that void is where the churches used to be. That work is a better place to spend money than on stained glass memorial windows.
And the other thing these churches need to do is apologize to their flocks. For decades the clergy have allowed themselves to be beguiled by secular humanists who claimed that cooperation and compromise would bring religious and non-religious people closer together. Instead they just destroyed the churches and drove the faithful away. If these church leaders ever hope to bring the people back, they need to purge their ranks of unbelievers and evil men and search their own souls and pray to God to give them guidance and read their Bibles to learn what they must and must not teach.
So, that’s a few of the things I think they need to do. If they could do half of that it would get us a lot closer to heaven than to the hell, we’re in now.
