City of San Francisco officially condemns Catholic Church

Those who are promoting the homosexual agenda are using time-proven tactics which have been employed by secular humanists for some time now. In the words of Ralph Martin, "First, a plea is issued for a dominantly Christian society to 'tolerate' what appears to be a deviant behavior. Then pressure is applied to place the deviant behavior on an equal footing with traditional Christian values. Secular humanists argue that a pluralist society cannot do otherwise. They then try to make the deviant behavior seem normal and behavior governed by Christian values seem abnormal - a threat to a pluralist society. The last step is often to use the legal system to protect immorality and to undermine what Christians have always considered righteous behavior." (A Crisis of Truth, pp. 101-102).

Professor James Hitchcock, in his excellent work entitled "Catholicism and Modernity" (New York: Seabury Press, 1979, p. 86), explains the role of the media in this entire process:"The media's alleged commitment to 'pluralism' is at base a kind of hoax. The banner of pluralism is raised in order to win toleration for new ideas as yet unacceptable to the majority. Once toleration has been achieved, public opinion is systematically manipulated first to enforce a status of equality between the old and the new, then to assert the superiority of the new over the old. A final stage is often the total discrediting, even sometimes the banning, of what had previously been orthodox."

In the words of one very astute blogger who spends his time in a dogpatch, "See you in the catacombs."

I don't think that's being overly dramatic either. I know Paul that you were saying years ago that Christians would probably have to go underground in the near future. Pat Buchanan was saying the same thing at the time. I really think that period of persecution is beginning now.

Yes, the time of more subtle attacks is passing away. Our worldly, poorly catechised Christians are unable to withstand the onslaught of the evil one, who is working up to a flood of open, and deadly persecution.

Time of enter into the ark of Mary before the door closes and its too late.

Many Protestants (and even some Catholics) believe that they will be "raptured" before having to face the Man of Sin and the most brutal persecution in the history of the Church.

These should reflect on Revelation 6:9-11: "When he broke open the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered because of the witness they bore to the Word of God. They cried out in a loud voice, 'How long will it be, holy and true master, before you sit in judgment and avenge our blood on the inhabitants of the earth?' Each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to be patient a little while longer until the number was filled of their fellow servants and brothers who were going to be killed as they had been."

This is the fate of those Christians who will remain true to the Lord Jesus and His Commandments. Read 2 Maccabees 7, and especially verses 10 and 11.

Thank you for your kind words here and in your comment on my blog.

I have perused your blog here before, and likewise say "Amen!" to your observations. JayG's DTF blog as well, of course.

Related to the theme of your post, another blogger, Mick Eugene Hunt, is currently experiencing legal difficulties regarding free speech issues and his involvement with the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP). I hope he writes of this soon in his Life Advocates blog.

Jerry, thanks for the links. Your blog is far too unappreciated. This probably because it is a little gem hidden in the dogpatch. Descartes must be turning in his grave over your Blog's title..:)

I am adding a link to your Blog here at La Salette Journey.

God love you,
