As in years past The American Catholic will participate in the Fortnight for Freedom proclaimed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Each day up to the Fourth of July we will have a special blog post on the subject of liberty and freedom.
I debated in my mind whether to participate this year. With a friend of liberty in the White House, it seemed less pressing to participate than under the odious Obama regime that was a clear and pressing danger to American liberty. However, as our history shows, eternal vigilance is the price of liberty and the issues raised in regard to the defense of our freedoms goes to the very heart of what it means to be an American. This country was born in furious debate and thus it must continue. And so we will take part again this year.
