Cardinal Francis George said “I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.”
Cardinal Francis George said some very provocative things about LGBT and the same-sex marriage agenda and you’ll want to read his comparison to them and the Klan and the reaction he got (at the above link)….He was quite a brave man, though he finally did have to ‘sort of’ apologize. Sadly, the good Cardinal died on April 15 of this year, of cancer, which means he did ‘die in his bed’….we can only conjecture of the rest of his statement will come true.
All of this was brought to my attention by Alec at HIS BLOG, where he has compiled a truly important and “short, hand-picked list of valuable items from around the web.” I found the above quote, on Alec’s urging, at this blog. If you have any concerns at all for the church and state situation, I highly recommend you read Alec and all the blogs he featured. REALLY good reading.
Do you think those of religious conscience will be, more and more, condemned for their beliefs? What can be done to counteract this?
“Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14
I believe that if all we, and the church, do is “done in obvious love,” we have a chance. It is not from hate that good Christians balk at same-sex marriage, certainly, but the media and leftwing secularists are adamant about making that the main issue; HATE. Obviously, this could not be further from the truth. We must show that. Find ways to counteract the onslaught with kindness, love, understanding…but firmness and well-articulated reasoning.
Have a wonderful Sunday…….and thank you, Alec, for the excellent information/blogs, etc. Alec’s main blog is on my blogroll, of course….please check it out.
