Like a Roaring Lion

If you don't think religious persecution - especially of Catholics - is on the horizon, think again. In fact, I think it's pretty much already here. We just haven't seen the full force of it yet. Start reading the Roman Martyrology for inspiration!

At Accepting Abundance, Stacy has some comments:

"Rose Marie Belforti is a town clerk in Ledyard, New York who refused to sign a marriage license in August for two women after the state enacted the Marriage Equality Act in July. The two women... don't even live in New York; they own seasonal property in a nearby town and actually live in Florida. One is an attorney and the other is a filmmaker.

"They knew that Rose Marie, a mother of four and a grandmother, had already made it known that she would not sign a same-sex marriage license, but
she would arrange for someone else to do it. The two women chose to come to Ledyard, this small farming town where they don't even live and where Rose Marie has been the elected clerk for the past ten years, just to press her on her beliefs. Rose Marie did not back down, but did offer to arrange for someone else to provide a legitimate signature. There are only around seven licenses a year to even sign at all. She has since turned over the responsibility of signing (all those!) marriage licenses to another clerk.

"So in a rational world, everyone should be happy. Right? ...Not so in this case. The two women are suing the town of Ledyard, and the situation has become national news. ... And rather than just "getting married" now as they so wanted to do, the two women have declared they won't stop until they get her to
sign the license."

Then consider this story, in which we learn that Muslim students at a CATHOLIC University are upset and say their rights are being trampled? Why? Because the school will not allow them to have a Muslim club, and neither will it give them classrooms just for Muslims - classrooms that don't have that offensive crucifix affixed to the wall.

Oh. My. Goodness. It's a CATHOLIC University! Do ya s'pose a Muslim university would bend over backwards to accommodate the needs/desires/demands of Catholics students? 'Course not.

Make no mistake. This is about persecution of the Catholic Church. It's coming. Sooner than you think. Arm yourself with the Truth, and with faith in God.

Sobrii estote, vigilate. Adversarius vester Diabolus tamquam leo rugiens circuit quaerens quem devoret. Cui resistite fortes fide...
 (1 Peter 5:8-9)
