Stop Sitting Around Doing Nothing!

J.M.J.
We're at war, and there is no sense in denying it. In fact, to deny it would be deadly. We're at war for the very survival of our Faith as we know it, for the preservation of morality and decency, and for the survival of our society and culture. All of this has been under attack especially since the 1960s, and it has gotten progressively worse. It's easy to blame the modernists, the radicals, the secularists, or the liberals in the Church and government, but the blame does not stop there. Each and every one of us that has ever sat back and done nothing while our religions, traditions, and culture are eroded and destroyed is equally to blame. All of us who have refused to stand up for justice, for truth, for our Faith, and for our society because of fear of being in the minority, fear of being ridiculed, or fear of negative consequences is also to blame. There are no half measures when it comes to our Faith. One is either all in or all out. There is no half-Catholicism. One is either a Catholic or not. There is no half-Christianity. One is either Christian or one is not. Those who profess to be Christian, but still stand by and do nothing and say nothing while moral decency and our religion is attacked by secularists, modernists, and liberals can hardly call themselves Christian.

Our Faith is one of positive action for the purpose of making the world a better place. It is time for Christians to stop preaching to the choir and instead preach to a public that might not want to hear the message. It is time to stop giving in to fear. It is time to stop sitting around and doing nothing. Rather, it is time for all true Christians to rise up and take a positive stand for moral decency, for our Faith and for society.
