Every Sunday, at Catholic Mass, I witness a great (mass) conversion going on within the walls of the local church. No doubt real conversion goes on within the hearts and minds of many a Catholic, through the actions of the Spirit 'who blows where he wills.' Yet, real statistics such as the American Catholic vote, and real political and social action, such as that which secular progressives do--and American Catholics join in on--along with the products and popular movies and television programs which American Catholics allow to enter their homes and lifestyles, reveal an incongruent 'yes' to both God and the world.
Yet Jesus warned us that you cannot have two masters. But that hasn't stopped many an American Catholic from trying!

Sunday is a day, for many baptized Americans, to dress up and pray the prayers, and 'amen' the traditional messages of the Catholic Church. Monday through Saturday, however, is their time! Time to play societies games and 'amen' the popular messages of secular progressive America! For them, the Eucharist is for Sunday, but the 'body' of popular society is for the rest of the week.
And the results have been disastrous!

The way of the 'new' America, fundamentally changed, has been partially paved by lukewarm, marshmallow, naive, people-pleasing Catholics, hell-bent on acceptance into a utopian heaven on earth. This utopian heaven has been hellishly mass produced in 55 million abortions, and a society which has lost its Judaeo-Christian bearings only to fall back into the abyss of an amoral status quo.

But what of those who 'yes' on Sunday, and struggle to remain yes-ful the rest of the week? 'Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness..."
