The “fake church” supported by the State

Our citizenship is in danger.

Our livelihood is in danger.

Our civil liberties are in danger by a State that once “kept its promise to protect all religions and not become a rival to them, a fake church.”

So says Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic archdiocese of Chicago in an article he wrote for his archdiocesan newspaper.

In a no-holds barred piece, he charged that the levers of power in government, media, education and entertainment are enforcing a “fake creed” on our citizenry, comparing it to “sharia law:”

“In recent years, society has brought social and legislative approval to all types of sexual relationships that used to be considered ‘sinful. Since the biblical vision of what it means to be human tells us that not every friendship or love can be expressed in sexual relations, the church’s teaching on these issues is now evidence of intolerance for what the civil law upholds and even imposes.

“What was once a request to live and let live has now become a demand for approval. The ‘ruling class,’ those who shape public opinion in politics, in education, in communications, in entertainment, is using the civil law to impose its own form of morality on everyone.

“We are told that, even in marriage itself, there is no difference between men and women, although nature and our very bodies clearly evidence that men and women are not interchangeable at will in forming a family. Nevertheless, those who do not conform to the official religion, we are warned, place their citizenship in danger.”

We know that those who proclaim “tolerance” for everything liberal are savagely intolerant of anything Christian.

Just as Islam wages an international war against Christianity, American liberals join the battle against Christians in our very homeland.

Cardinal George is brave enough to express what the politically-correct pooh-pooh with a wink and a nod.
