The Old and New Testaments bear witness, from Abel's death in good worship to St. John the Baptist's beheading in honest speech, to the lot of the prophet in his own country. And, as the Cross attests, it was no different for Jesus.
So, why should we expect anything different?
Prophecy is not so much predicting the future in graced mysticism as it is the recognition of God's Will in our own times, and the failure in sin, produced by the world, and, sadly, by 'believers' in response to it. Prophets in our own decade predicted the dire outcome of the Obama Presidency, only to be labeled 'conspiracy theorists' and racists. Prophets in our own decade denounced gay 'marriages' only to be labeled 'homophobes.' And prophets in our midst, predict a very poor outcome for America if we don't repent of our atheistic-secularism and re-embrace the wisdom and truth our forefathers used as a guiding light in the Judaeo-Christian Tradition.
Prophecy, today, is a dangerous business.
Catholics who preach Catholicism within Catholic circles are deemed 'extremists' and 'traditionalists.' Since when is being what you are a public sin? Likewise, American's who patriotically hold to the very Constitution of the United States are labeled by their own government as 'extremists.' Honestly, to practice Catholicism as a Catholic, or to be an American, as the founding fathers envisioned, is becoming increasingly harder every day. If prophecy is God's Will for here and now, then Pro Life and Pro Traditional Marriage, not to mention Pro-Religious freedom, will be prophecy which will put the modern prophet in real danger.
And this is equally true of the Constitutional American--labeled an extremist.
Preach against abortion or gay marriage, and Goliath in the IRS or the NSA will attempt to squash you like a bug. Preach the Christian Truth about homosexuality and expect King Herod, in race baiters and main-stream-media attacks, to behead you. Promote the Constitution in America and expect a socialist and secularist and atheist and feminist (and fill in the blank on any other ideological groups agenda) attack on you.
When Jesus spoke to the Nazarene's of the truth of God's rejection of their faithlessness, they almost threw him off the brow of the cliff. Yet, he walked away, and continued His Holy Business, all the Way to the Cross. And as prophetic disciples we must do the same.
