Gospel Mt 23:27-32

Jesus said,
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside,
but inside are full of dead men’s bones and every kind of filth.
Even so, on the outside you appear righteous,
but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and evildoing.

Some people are concerned only about appearances; the outside of things. We can be like that, too. We stuff closets with things we don’t want any visitor to see. We cover our faces with make-up, and our bodies with just the right clothes to make a favorable impression. We say all the things people want to hear whether we believe in them or not.  We all do this to some extent.

On the surface it may be harmless–unless we are covering-up–and yes, hiding– an ugly evil going on inside us. When we are concerned only with what others think about us, we have no principles. When we say one thing in daylight when everyone is watching, but do another thing in the dark when no one sees us, then we are hypocritical, self-serving, and false human beings who should not be trusted.

Isn’t this what we despise about politicians? Their dishonesty. Their hypocrisy. Their self-grabbing. Politicians polish up the outside of themselves so that they appear to care for the downtrodden, when the downtrodden are only a means to votes that will accomplish their selfish ends.

We see this today in Joe Biden and the Democratic Party where nothing is too sacred to use toward for their own gain. Where are those principled stops that ought to be there? There are times when any of us may consider an action that is completely self-serving. But we don’t, because some life-principle we believe in, stops us.

However, there seems to be no life-principle to stop the Democrats’ self-aggrandizement. No lie they will not tell, no people they will not use — not even Americans and our allies left in the wake of Biden’s bumbled retreat from Afghanistan.

In the last forty-seven years, a lengthy time in which Joe Biden was in a position to actually help, the people who depended on him are not better off, but worse off.

If there is no judgment, then evil is good and good is evil.–Fulton J. Sheen

I must judge this Democratic party, as an American Citizen, Catholic, and voter, I must ask: where are their principles?  Which path are they taking??

I suggest it is not the right path. I suggest that time and time again it is the wrong path of plunder and self-indulgence. In short, they are ruining our beautiful country to the point that she may never get out of their ropes. How much longer can we stand for this?

I’m not a rap fan, but I wholeheartedly believe this is their plan.

Step one, train the people only to consume
Step two, infiltrate adults with the news
Step three, indoctrinate the children through the schools
And the music and the apps on the phones that they use
Step four, separate the right from the left
Step five, separate the white from the black
Step six, separate the rich from the poor
Use religion and equality to separate ’em more
Step seven, fabricate a problem made of lies
Step eight, put it on the news every night
Step nine, when people start to fight and divide
Take control, this is called situational design

  1. Though these concerns are predominant in the party you mention, it also exits in the other. It’s like there’s no regard across the board for truth anymore. We no longer have a representative form of government, but a tyrannical oligarchy. It’s no longer about the will of the people, but the powers that be – put there by blind followers. The Constitution no longer applies. In fact, we’ve been overthrown. No longer is the voice of taxpaying citizens heard. My hope alone is in the kingdom of Christ.
