Fox New's Bill O'Reilly pronounces the historical truth of Jesus, disputing the witness of the gospel, the Church Fathers, and 2,000+ years of Sacred Tradition. Nancy Pelosi pronounces that Planned Parenthood is 'sacred ground.' Barack Obama divinizes socialism, entitlements, and racial warfare, while demonizing the Catholic Pro-Life stance concerning abortion, contraception, and 'gay' marriage. Terrorists such as CAIR place political shackles on free speech by hurling 'islamophobe' at anyone who gets in their fundamentalist way. Progressives, such as the Obama administration, and their numerous special interest groups, hurl 'homophobe' against any rational argument concerning traditional marriage, family, and American societal survival; likewise, expert race-baiters, such as Barack Obama and Eric Holder, hurl 'racist' at anyone who tries to impede their totalitarian march toward a utopian Euro-America.
Every day it gets just a little bit easier to kill Jesus.
"I hear the whisperings of many: 'Terror on every side! Denounce! let us denounce him!” All those who were my friends are on the watch for any misstep of mine." Jeremiah 20:10-13
My wife grew up in Communist Cuba and tells the story of the street corner communist spy that came into her home every day to check up on her family and see that they were 'behaving.'
This, my friends, will be America's near future, if we don't rebel.
True Christianity, particularly the depiction of genuine Catholicism, is a rare bird in popular cultural depictions. Rather, Jesus is killed ever day in the governmental, popular, and industrial deification of relativism, hedonism, materialism, scientism, utilitarianism, and eugenic-technology.
Who needs Jesus when we have big government, amazing technology, legalized weed, sex galore, unprecedented human freedoms (licentiousness?), and fanciful utopianism?
"The breakers of death surged round about me, the destroying floods overwhelmed me; The cords of the nether world enmeshed me, the snares of death overtook me." Psalm 18:2-7
Yet, the greatest killer of Jesus every day is complicit Christianity.
How could a majority of Catholics have voted for Barack Obama, twice? How could the American Catholic Church have produced the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Kathleen Sebelius? How can any honest Catholic, or non-Catholic Christian, deny that we have, in one way or another, succumb to the treachery of the lusts of popular society? How can any of us deny some level of complicity?
We may not have hung Jesus on the Cross, but we certainly drove in at least one nail.
"The Jews picked up rocks to stone Jesus. Jesus answered them, 'I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of these are you trying to stone me?' The Jews answered him, 'We are not stoning you for a good work but for blasphemy. You, a man, are making yourself God.'” John 10:31-42
Jesus dies ever day in America, not because He inspires charity and compassion, but because He claims to be divine. For our persecutors love our charity and compassion, they love when we forgive them and encourage them. But they hate us when we simply preach the Truth of Jesus...which happens to come with a Cruciform moral package.
That is why Bill O'Reilly talks of Christian 'philosophy,' and Nancy Pelosi pronounces 'sacred ground.' That is why millions of Catholics use contraception against Church teaching and vote for a Pro-Choice President.
Because they truly don't believe.
And this is what is killing Jesus every day.
