It's Just About a Preacher and His Congregation Thing

Dear America,

so it's meant to be funny -- Larry Doyle and his satirical piece of crap titled, "Jesus-Eating Cult of Rick Santorum" -- featured in the "comedy" section, located on the outskirts of the Huffington Post.

maybe I'm just not smart enough to get the joke.

of course, if Larry talked about anyone of the Muslim faith in the same vein, he would be dead, or at least on the opposite end of free radicals serving up death threats alongside his morning wafer of choice.

but these days -- if you are Christian -- and especially Catholic -- it is open season.

This thing with Sandra Fluke is working along the same lines; it's just another vicious attack on religious freedom and the free expression thereof.

Catholic Institutions are being coerced to ignore their fundamental beliefs to serve a false God, the government; for the Obama Administration is force-feeding a policy that Catholics simply can't support in any way, shape or form.

[and even after Obama has seen the light, and offered full cooperation to work around the strict confines of the Catholic faith -- in other words, he's just making the insurance companies eat the added costs....which is truly funny, considering that once we swallow that, turns out to be the same thing when the institution is self-insured. ...and going beyond that, it all falls back on the backs of you and me, subsidizing the great benevolent gift from our government Saviour for all women]

Given this nation was rooted in a fundamentally revolutionary concept on the day -- to save and create religious freedom and keep government out of the activities of the church, the individual state, and certainly the personal lives and property of the people  --  this is quite a flip.

A letter from Benjamin Franklin to the then president of Yale University, Ezra Stiles:

"Here is my creed:  I believe in one God, the Creator of the universe.  That he governs it by his providence.  That he ought to be worshipped.  That the most acceptable service we render to him is in doing good to his children.   That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting of its conduct in this.  These I take to be the fundamental points in all sound religion." excerpt pulled from The 5000 Year Leap, W. Cleon Skousen

"The Leap" continues to explain that five fundamental, broad-based beliefs defined a certain "religion of America" -- a religion "of all mankind;"  for the precepts were so widely accepted, all faiths found common ground; and more than that, these fundamentals postures for living were considered so important -- that they must be taught in schools.

Here they are:

  • There exists a Creator who made all things, and mankind should recognize and worship Him.
  • The Creator has revealed a moral code of behavior for happy living which distinguishes right from wrong.
  • The Creator holds mankind responsible for the way they treat each other.
  • All mankind live beyond this life.
  • In the next life mankind are judged for their conduct in this one.
So, just to be clear and as we have discussed here many, many times before -- God, the Creator, can be called by many different names and followed in any number of ways.  But there is only One (even if you, yourself, dismiss It altogether)

Thomas Jefferson wraps up the section from "The Leap" by adding this:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports...Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?"

Is Georgetown the new Yale of yesteryear?  Is this a sign?  Will the real America please stand up?

Sandra Fluke chose to go to Georgetown U.  She knew full well going in -- on scholarship at a school that costs upwards of $40,000/year -- that it is a religious institution and it's health care package did not include free contraceptives (until the Affordable Care Act was enacted).  I find her latest allegiance/activism counter-intuitive to the overall fundamental -- Constitutionally backed -- generally accepted and widely adored -- cornerstone of our country.

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY trumps liberal usurpations of the law every time (that is, unless Obama gets re-elected -- or a member of the LSRJ - Law Students for Reproductive Justice, like Sandra, has her way).

I believe we are all free to do whatever we want with our own bodies.  Just do it.   Do whatever it is you need to do to get along in this world.  Fly free and be happy and be good to each other.  Have at it.  Revel in it.  Live a life beyond your dreams. Go for it.

Just don't make me pay for whatever it is you choose to do against my will, my faith -- we already have more entitlements than we know what to do with, or can afford.  Just don't make anyONE of us, or any INSTITUTION, forfeit their religious beliefs in the process.   that's all.

The thing is, the preacher of the Audacity of Hope and Fundamental Transformation, is re-creating how Americans co-exist with one another.  We are no longer being defined by the things which bind, but by the things which divide -- and the more polarizing the better.

He is going about his re-election campaign picking apart the bits and pieces of mankind like an Alchemist-in-Chief, leaving us either spell-bound or crazy.

We are falling apart, one by one -- being virtually ripped from our core beliefs -- allowing the so-called intelligencia of our liberal elite re-frame and re-do our most fundamental principles.

From James Madison:

"There is not a shadow of right in the general government to intermeddle with religion.  Its least interference with it would be a most flagrant usurpation."

now picture me, Dolly Madison here, just pulling off the blindfold...
....finding myself thoroughly puzzled....

Make it a Good Day, G

so little miss Sandra-dee, let's be real -- it's not about contraception at all, is it?  is it?
