On The Edge

file3511244468063I’ve entitled my blog “A World on the Edge” for a reason. I believe our world, created by God, is in many ways eroding. Nowhere is this more evident than in the present fight for religious freedom all over the world. And now, the fight comes to our beloved America, founded on principles of liberty that reflect the individual rights God gave each one of us: One of the basic rights is Freedom OF Religion. Not Freedom FROM Religion. That means your religion and mine.

Imagine yourself standing in the sand at dusk on the edge of the beautiful, blue-green Gulf of Mexico while waves, with each rush, pull the sand from beneath your feet. At first, you may not notice, but if you stand there long enough, a hole will occur around each foot, and you will lose your balance. This is what is happening to our religious freedom in the United States of America. And we are barely noticing it.

As they did last year,  from June 21 to July 4, Catholics across the nation are observing a Fortnight for Freedom. Not a special freedom just for us, but the right of all citizens for religious freedom.

In the words of George Washington: “If I could have entertained the slightest apprehension that the Constitution framed in the Convention, where I had the honor to preside, might possibly endanger the religious rights of any ecclesiastical society, certainly I would never have placed my signature to it.”

A year has passed since the first Fortnight for Freedom. Things are no better. We are in danger. Take notice that America is tottering on The Edge. Help keep her balanced. Join us again as we stand up for Freedom of Religion.
