Some people feel that Lenten articles should be solely about fasting, almsgiving, and charitable activity, and have nothing to do with politics. But that is exactly what the devil wants us to do! Yes, prayerful repentance in the grace of the Cross of Jesus Christ is the only Way to personal, and national, conversion. But prayer and repentance without a little elbow grease (actual evangelization of Truth) is playing into the devils, and the secularists, trap.
For the perversion of 'the separation of Church and State' seduces us to an easy religion separate from our public life--to the death of our nation!

And while we have been praying in our little box, President Obama, and his progressive minions, have passed an 'Obamacare' bill loaded with unexpected surprises! Yes, we already know all about the looming HHS mandate and the attack on religious liberty, and the religiously formed conscience!
But some of the things yet to come out are outright Sci-fi scary!
Did you know that in H.R. 4872, there is a section for 'Radio Frequency Identification Devices,' or RFID's. In other words, computer chips for human implantation. The exact wording is 'for in, or on, a patient.' Yes, the expected response is that these 'life supporting or life sustaining' devices are such things as Implanted Defibrillators and Pacemakers. No dummies here! But what would stop a regime who supports national baby killing from implementing a national surveillance system by implanting chips in all of us--in the name of personal security of course!

And outside of 'Obamacare' there are disturbing trends from the Obama administration. After passing the 'National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), President Obama was criticized for making it lawful to detain American citizens (whom he deems a threat to our nation) without due process. He vehemently denied that this act would be used against American citizens. Really? Just recently, a leak from the White House revealed Obama's plans to drone-kill U.S. citizens without due process!

The question is, what marks one as a threat to our nation? With Facebook tax wave-offs, will anti-Obama posts allow for a drone strike on our homes? Exaggeration, maybe. Hopefully! But, once again, what would stop a regime that wants to destroy our religious liberty, and our 2nd and 5th Amendment rights from imprisoning us for speaking out against them in the future?
Now we can start praying, fasting, and almsgiving! We'll certainly need it!
