The United States Catholic Church is taking on the most powerful man in the world -- President Barack Hussein Obama. Nobody can say this was a fight the Church asked for, because if anything, the U.S. Catholic bishops did too much to help get Obamacare passed in the first place. Obama had in the bishops a powerful ally, which he stabbed in the back with his HHS mandate, and now he has made of them a powerful enemy. The U.S. Catholic Church is not powerful because of its numbers or influence. It is powerful because of Who we call upon to fight for us. It is none other than the Creator of the Universe Himself. Many world leaders have made their careers shipwrecked on this Rock of St. Peter, and there is no reason to believe that this one will be any different. If God should will to have mercy upon us, forgive us our sins, and return to our aid, there is nothing Obama or his minions can do. His reign of terror will soon come to an end.
Now we can debate whether or not the bishops' deserve this. (I personally think they do.) They did after all make a deal with the devil over Obamacare. They forgot their first calling, which is to sanctify men and bring their souls to salvation. They instead embraced the banner of "social justice" which wouldn't be a problem in itself, except that they also rejected its core teaching -- which is SUBSIDIARITY -- without which there can be no social justice. It is a lesson they are painfully learning first hand, as they themselves become the first victims of the Obamacare juggernaut. (I believe this is fitting and poetic.) That however, doesn't mean that we the faithful should ever turn our backs on them and let them fall. On the contrary, they got themselves into this mess, but we have a God who can get them out. We can only hope and pray they will have learned their lesson in the process. What is that lesson? It is simply this. Whenever the topic of Social Justice is raised -- SUBSIDIARITY ALWAYS COMES FIRST !!!! Had the bishops followed this model, they wouldn't be in this mess today.
So let's get involved people, and let us learn, pray and demonstrate. Let us stand by our flawed bishops and fight with them. Through it all however, let us first and foremost, call upon God to deliver us from this evil, and let our leaders never again be led into similar temptation. RISE UP O' LORD !!!
