I'm flying my U.S. Flag upside down!

LET FREEDOM RING

Dear Friends,

As the dark, cold air of an egocentric culture threatens to all but choke out our values and principals, do we resist the currents of the times or do we go with the flow and float downstream? All to often, dead things float downstream!

It takes living faith: minds animated and illumined by eternal truth and wills strengthened by principals and values to resist the deadly currents of this decaying society.

Our military installations have a tradition of firing a cannon and playing a bugle call at 6AM Reveille when the flag is raised and again at 6PM Retreat when the flag is lowered. Likewise, Catholic Churches throughout the world ring bells at 6AM, 12PM and 6PM during the Angelus. Perhaps we as 912ers could borrow these traditions as a means to call all Americans of faith, morals, principals and values to unite together in silent PRAYER for the United States.

I’d suggest that we as 912ers consider asking our clergymen to consider setting their church bells to toll at 6AM, 12PM and 6AM as a means to lift up our nation in prayer. I’d further suggest that we as individuals consider setting our watches, PDA’s, blackberry’s, laptops etc to remind us and everyone around us for this time of prayer.

I’d ask that one simply bow his or her head and humbly pray simply and silently that God Bless America during this time of prayer, and unite that prayer with the many others observing this call to prayer throughout the nation.

Prayer is feared by those in our culture who seek to suppress it and eliminate God from our public places. We run the risk today in our once largely Christian country of falling into that class of idolaters which St. Paul bitterly denounced because of their refusal to worship God and accept his teaching, despite their knowledge of him (Romans 1:20-27). Or worse, stand by silently while others force their unbelief upon us.

Freedom of Religion is a fundamental constitutional right. Christians today in the United States represent the single largest religious voting block in the country. It is time that we stand up and live up to the high and lofty demands that our faith calls us to, and surround them powerfully and without compromise. For if God if for us, who can be against us?

Let's let Freedom Ring and ring loudly and clearly in the ears of those who seek to suppress our rights, tell us how to live, imposing laws that are illicit and mores that are immoral.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

The tired argument that is so often heard these days about the separation of Church and State is a patently specious one, to say the least. The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

The current erroneous interpretation of the separation of church and state is nothing less than an attack on the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America itself.

Every citizen has a right to express their views and to vote in accordance with those views. The legitimate separation of church and state concerns the constitutional prohibition of one state sponsored religion, as well as the Founding Fathers' intent to keep the government out of the affairs of the various religions.

The version of separation of church and state that is presently being foisted on an unsuspecting public is tantamount to suppression of the fundamental constitutional rights of a class of citizens, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. Since when is Christian though not permitted to influence a county that was founded on Christian principles?

The Church in not a mere human invention, like a political or social entity. The Church is of divine institution. The Church can never fail ultimately, although her members can and do. The Church is far more than the sum of her human members, for if that were the case the Church would surely have fallen long ago. The storms of time and the tempests stirred up by earthly kings and rulers come and go; their crowns rise and fall, and roll in the dust, but the Church goes on. Mere personal opinions come and go. Some say this, some say that. Those who attack the Church attack Christ.

Transcending time and space, the Church is relevant to all people at all times and in all places. In an age of violence and violent change, it is comforting to know that religious leaders are in a unique position to influence the nation and the world for the better by calling their people to high moral standards. Failure to do so ultimately results in disaster, for the moral demise of a nation always precedes the ultimate demise of a nation.

The hour is late indeed. Can it be imagined that the hand of the heavenly Father "who chastises ever son He loves' will be held back indefinitely? We are poised on the edge of a precipice; a definitive moment in history has come. If the morally toxic wasteland that used to be the greatest nation on the face of the earth isn't accorded "moral superpower" status soon, then will not the wake-up call that was 9/11 pale into insignificance at the moral day of reckoning that is inexorably coming? Even if one doesn't care to believe that God punishes, He surely corrects out of love, and often He uses the blunt instruments of our enemies to do so.

If people of faith don't begin to form their consciences to the objective and absolute nor of Truth - in faith and morals and then live, witness and vote that well-formed conscience, then, we may indeed find that this culture and this county will indeed end with a whimper, rather than a bang. For evil will indeed triumph if good men remain silent.

For this once great country, which was originally founded upon transcendent and immutable Christian principles and morals, will simple keel over and die, another wreck on the reefs of time. It is inevitable, unless we, live, witness, and vote the faith we profess!

The version of separation of church and state that is presently being foisted on an unsuspecting public is tantamount to a suppression of the fundamental constitutional rights of a class of citizens. Since when is Christian thought not permitted to influence a country that was founded on Christian principles? Our Founding Fathers' intent was to keep the government out of the affairs of various religions.

Catholics have a serious moral obligation to form our consciences in accord with the objective and absolute norm of truth that is, church teaching. One of the primary reasons that our country has largely become a moral wasteland is that we Catholics and all people of faith have done a dismally poor job of both forming our consciences and then living, teaching, and voting in accordance with them.

In many ways, this bill has been a wake up call to all people of faith. The initiative of lay Christians is necessary especially when the matter involves discovering or inventing the means for permeating social, political, and economic realities with the demands of Christian doctrine and life.

We are not to be confused by empty rhetoric and the fallacy of what is "politically correct," especially when that is largely determined by the mind of a culture which will go down in history as grandly technological, yet singular irrational; able to travel far into space, yet amazingly crippled in its ability to travel inwardly in order to be in touch with the high and lofty demands of its own moral nature.

We should be mightily wary of a culture, rightly described as a "culture of death," that seeks to tell us how to live, imposing laws that are illicit and mores that are immoral.
