Fortnight For Freedom 2015

 Fortnight For Freedom 2015

As in years past, The American Catholic will take part in The Fortnight Freedom proclaimed by the USCCB:

 

 

The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Bear Witness will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2015, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. The theme of this year’s Fortnight will focus on the “freedom to bear witness” to the truth of the Gospel.

We will be having special posts beginning tomorrow through the Fourth of July.  Our post tomorrow will deal with the theme of how easier it would be for the Church to defend her freedom, if some leaders of the Church were not always attempting to be getting into bed with Caesar.

  1. … theme of how easier it would be for the Church to defend her freedom, if some leaders of the Church were not always attempting to be getting into bed with Caesar …
    .
    Teaching the way to go along to get along, therefore minimizing the nasty boys’ mudslinging and, so, getting a seat at some table. Temporal trumps eternal. Vilify those defenders of Sacred Tradition and Scripture . Advance theological twists by means of subsidiarity with eyes like fish out of water.

  2. Freedom to bear witness. The rational soul of the human being gives witness by its very existence. Human existence is the criterion for the objective ordering of human rights. Suarez.
    Human witness is evidence and testimony in a court of law. A sovereign person’s existence is evidence and witness in a court of law above any artificially legislated law since the sovereign personhood of the citizen constitutes the government, a government which now is trying to upend and impose itself over and above the innocent person as his owner. The state owns the unite of work in the Communist state, known as a man and a human being. Criminalizing innocent acts and convicting persons for innocent acts is the modus operandi of communism. Putting doctors in federal prison for treating patients without Hillary Clinton’s permission, practicing one’s civil right to freedom of religion in not adhering to the states definition of discrimination, criminalizing banking law to make innocent depositors guilty of federal crimes are three examples of criminalizing ordinary behavior and then prosecuting such behavior as the state demands. In the not to far away future, the human being is going to be criminalized for being a human being. Make sure Climate Changegate is repulsed.
