After eight years of arrogant incompetence and the tyranny of perversion, we are finally getting a chance to breathe the fresh air of competence, common sense and common decency, all of which have been consigned by secular progressives to the level of “hate crimes” over the past several decades.
The secularist “social justice” agenda, embraced at great expense to our nation, even by so many of our clergy, has doubled the national debt, increased inner city violence, deepened racial animosity, fostered the flooding of our nation with drugs, criminals, jihadists and sexual perverts, ridiculed Christianity and those who take all of Christ’s precepts seriously, destroyed families, butchered millions of pre-born babies, left millions of our youth in debt with no reasonable hope for a decent job, consigned millions to excruciating chronic pain due to fears that they may become drug abusers, categorized rape and domestic violence by Muslims or by those who have illegally infiltrated into our nation as merely cultural issues, promoted the degeneration of our language to the point where blasphemy, slander, profanity and obscenities have become culturally de rigueur, and left our educational system graduating students full of criticism, but lacking the discernment skills required to do critical thinking.
Is it any wonder that such a capitulation is leading to millions abandoning the Faith of the Church, many of whose leaders have in so many ways become so enamored with secularist “Gospel principles” that they are hesitant to assert the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ as the Way, the Truth and the Life?
Instead of being reverenced as our Master, He is relegated to being merely a mascot for their secularist “social justice” agenda. And His clear moral teachings have been consigned, even by many Church leaders, to the position of being merely a spiritualized Rorschach test – especially when such teachings assert the importance of marital fidelity, chastity, modesty and respect for the sacredness of human life and human sexuality.
May God grant President Donal J. Trump and his assistants the wisdom, strength, stamina and resilience to overcome the tsunami of resentments, profanity, slander, arrogance and perversions that are coming from the “tolerant” adherents and allies of the secularist progressive “social justice” agenda.
