THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER:The Anti-Christian Pogrom

India today, America tomorrow

(www.RemnantNewspaper.com) The stark reality of deadly schoolhouse violence and the intellectual fraud that is the pathetic national narrative makes my blood run cold.  I don’t think I’m alone when I say, “the handwriting is on the wall”.  To those who are awake and standing watch, the truth is clear: we are witnessing the breakdown of our national social structure.

We know in our hearts that the political power and force has shifted into the court of those who adhere to the philosophy of socialism and the rules of Saul Alinsky.

How quickly and to what extent will the radical and tyrannical elements metastasize into street violence depends on the strength and resistance of the conservative Christian body.  Let’s be honest, the Christian body, for the most part, is in denial of the reality that threatens its existence.

Catholics Must Not Cede Ground in Public Debate | Crisis Magazine

In the last several months I’ve been discussing the problems Catholics face dealing with public life today. The recent election underlined some of them. The bishops and others made their pitch about threats to the family and the freedom of the Church, the Democrats stood firm, and most Americans—including most self-identified Catholics—voted for the Democrats. Not only does the world care very little for Catholic concerns, but it seems that Catholics acting as citizens care little for them as well.

Some Lingering Questions for the Church in the Wake of the Last Election | Archdiocese of Washington

There are many lingering questions in the aftermath of the recent elections here in America. Among them is the role that the Church does or should play in giving Catholics direction on how to vote. What should the clergy say? How far should they go? When are voter guides too specific and when are they not specific enough? Is it enough for the Church to preach principles and let Catholics connect the dots?

And, even if one concludes that the Church should not endorse or exclude particular Candidates by name, what about specific issues? Should the Church in such cases also preach only principles or should the Church specifically ask or direct Catholic to vote “No” on “Proposition ##” and “Yes” on “Proposition ##.” Is that going too far? When?

THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Signs of the Times

THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Signs of the Times.

Based upon its 2012 platform, it appears that the Diabolical Party has yet to encounter an intrinsic evil that is not to their liking. Their platform includes tax funded abortion on demand, right up until the moment that a child is born; free access to contraception, sterilization and abortifacients for all women, funded by employers; universal recognition of same-sex marriages and laws that forbid gender discrimination against LGBT freaks.

And that is what the Democratic platform stands for: abortion, sterility, homosexuality. The single mention of God in their ungodly DNC platform is nothing short of sacrilege.

Death Panels

Former counselor to the Treasury secretary in the Obama administration says that we need death panels, or something like it, to ration health care or the cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.

Are We A Nation of Esau’s?

Did we just sell our birthright and our liberty for the scanty sum of some free trinkets from the government? Did we just sell Manhattan for a few worthless glass beads? Are Americans so stupid or self-centered that they would sell themselves into slavery for free healthcare, food stamps or government housing?

We are now becoming a nation of slaves begging our illustrious leaders to take from the rich so that we might have more free stuff. We will vote for you, strike for you, riot for you and praise you if only you will give us a few crumbs from your plate.

Do you not remember the story of Esau who sold his birthright for a little meat? If not refresh your memory:

And when they were grown up, Esau became a skillful hunter, and a husbandman, but Jacob a plain man dwelt in tents. And the boys grew. And Esau was a skilful hunter, a man of the field. And Jacob was a quiet man, dwelling in tents. Isaac loved Esau, because he ate of his hunting: and Rebecca loved Jacob. Now Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison. And Rebekah loved Jacob. And Jacob boiled Pottage: to whom Esau, coming faint out of the field, And Jacob boiled pottage. And Esau came in from the field, and he was faint. Said: Give me of this red pottage, for I am exceeding faint. For which reason his name was called Edom. And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red [pottage]. For I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said to him: Sell me thy first birthright. And Jacob said, Sell me first thy birthright. He answered: Lo I die, what will the first birthright avail me. And Esau said, Behold, I am about to die. And what profit shall the birthright do to me? Jacob said: Swear therefore to me. Esau swore to him, and sold his first birthright. And Jacob said, Swear to me first. And he sware unto him. And he sold his birthright unto Jacob. And so taking bread and the pottage of lentils, he ate, and drank, and went his way; making little account of having sold his first birthright. __Gen. 25:27-34

Esau did not see the value of his birthright and was quick to relinquish it for a morsel of food. We are just as foolish: seeing little use for our freedoms and liberties. Therefore, Esau did not deserve his birthright nor do we deserve ours.

 Now all chastisement for the present indeed seemeth not to bring with it joy, but sorrow: but afterwards it will yield, to them that are exercised by it, the most peaceable fruit of justice. All chastening seemeth for the present to be not joyous but grievous; yet afterward it yieldeth peaceable fruit unto them that have been exercised thereby, [even the fruit] of righteousness. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, Wherefore lift up the hands that hang down, and the palsied knees; And make straight steps with your feet: that no one, halting, may go out of the way; but rather be healed. and make straight paths for your feet, that that which is lame be not turned out of the way, but rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness: without which no man shall see God. Follow after peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently, lest any man be wanting to the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up do hinder, and by it many be defiled. looking carefully lest [there be] any man that falleth short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and thereby the many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau; who for one mess [morsel of meat], sold his first birthright. __Heb. 12:11-16

We will have to bear the consequences of our apathy just as Esau did. At least the author of Hebrews has some sound advice for us while we endure our chastisement. What do you think?
