Remaining Steadfast in the Grip of Tyranny
Lately we have seen the introduction of tyrannical forces that have affected certain cities and the lack of prosecution to those who are practicing anarchy on our streets. It has become a free-for-all and the ones who are caught in the middle are innocent citizens while the perpetrators are set free.
As Americans, we have always held onto the principles of the Constitution and looked to our government leaders to support these dictates protecting you and me. However, this feeling of security has begun to slip away and even the heroes of justice are being shut out through crooked prosecutors’ arraignment of former President Trump. If you are concerned about the unjust events going on in Washington DC, beyond the trials of Trump that will disrupt the 2024 elections, the subtle attacks on the Catholic Church are beginning to appear in our country, like the ones already in effect in foreign nations. Our Church is constantly under the control in different corners of the world and its not going away. China is one where the government wanted the Pope to allow their government to assign Chinese Bishops who will adhere to the regime of China. This did occur.
What is at risk of being destroyed or changed as we know it is the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. Our freedom of speech is already being challenged and the right to worship as we choose may be on the chopping block. Recently I wrote about the Holy Eucharist being accepted from what it really is to just an image of remembrance. However, the security we have relished in receiving the Real Presence of Christ may also be at risk out of our control. Remember not too long ago when Covid-19 closed the doors of the Church for a time. With so much corruption in our government and leaning towards Communism that issue of closed doors to the Church may become a fear we will have no control over.
Whatever your individual preference in politics may be, the control over who is in the White House and Congress remains with the voters. It will behoove all of us who have that right to select our officials in government must take a serious look at what their agenda is and vote accordingly. I don’t believe President Biden can take all the blame for what is occurring; it is the far left controlling his actions of which he isn’t mentally capable of doing anything on his own initiative.
This situation we have found ourselves entrapped in through a pre-communistic realm will not disappear on its own. We still have the right to vote out of office those who do not care about the other rights and put in place someone who has the guts to stand against the few who are controlling Joe Biden’s decision to do their bidding. If the left regime is trying to control the future of America, which will not be a symbol of what it was fought for, the polls will show it without our votes.
I can only say the worst is yet to come and those who will be our leaders do not have our best interests in hand. Stand together for the rights of the government and our Church also under attack and pray earnestly that God will put someone before us for our freedoms.
