The Catholic Church: We Must Stand With Them
I’m going to make an extraordinarily provocative statement, but I wouldn’t bet against my not being right. I do not believe the Catholic Church will prevail against Obama’s objective to destroy organized religion as we know it.
Many will attack me for saying that Obama is out to destroy organized religion, including the Catholic Church as we know it, that’s their prerogative – nothing dissuades me of same. Obama may not be a card carrying Communist, but let there be absolutely no doubt, he is as Communist as they come. The media can can claim otherwise, but that doesn’t make him any less of a Socialist. W.E.B. DuBois didn’t become a card carrying Communist until he was 93 years old, but he held and espoused Socialism his entire life.
Communist philosophy places all power over the people in the hands of the state, i.e., the government. The church interdicts that advocating people answer to God and obey biblical precepts, and as such it is a direct threat to the control of government. And as with any dictatorial construct, all threats must be removed and eliminated.
Marx himself said: “Communism differs from all previous movements in that it overturns the basis of all relations of production and intercourse, and for the first time consciously treats all natural premises as the creatures of hitherto existing men, strips them of their natural character and subjugates them to the power of the united individuals.” In brief he was saying no power but state power, no authority but state authority.
There is no way Obama hasn’t done polling and focus study groups on the issue of forcing Catholic hospitals and charitable groups to participate in contraception programs, and by default abortion vis-a-vis Obamacare. It’s a safe bet that his findings revealed a growing ambivalence and discontent by Catholics for the Churches’ stance on birth control. Thus he believes there is tepid support at best, amongst the younger Catholics for the the contraceptive position of the Church.
The Catholic Church will be forced to obey Obama’s edict or close their doors, and I personally believe Obama would step in to take over the facilities if the Catholic Church moved to close. The argument would not be to big to fail, but rather to necessary to fail.
You may not agree with what the Catholic Church teaches or even how it practices it faith, but it without question is one of the most significant (read: powerful, influential) churches. If Obama is able to force aside the fundamental beliefs of the Catholic Church, he will next set himself to attack evangelical churches at their very core. We will see attacks and court battles pursuant to what is permissible to be taught/preached in the church, under hate speech laws and discrimination laws pursuant to employment.
You may be saying to yourself that I’ve lost it on this one – you may be saying I’m engaging in the worst kind of fear mongering and/or conspiracy mongering. But ask yourself this – if Obama isn’t thinking what I’m predicting, why force the Church’s hand to begin with? He hasn’t forced the hands of his business friends. They’ve been given permission to not participate in his healthcare program.
This is one of the most important moments in Christendom since Luther nailed a note on the Wittenburg Church door. We cannot allow the Catholic Church to fight this battle alone – every denomination and every Believer must rise in support of this Church. Even if the Catholic Church were to prevail, this time – precedent would be established and just as with abortion and homosexual marriage, through repeated court battles, they will eventually triumph.
When organizations take government money, that ultimately means they must do what government says. You can’t dine with the devil and not get ashes in your food. If we don’t act today, tomorrow will be to late.
