This is a follow-up to my post So if you proclaim to be Catholic....Are you a Kennedy Catholic or are you a Stupak Catholic?
So what do I do if I am a Stupak Catholic and the Kennedy Catholics are in Power?
First and foremost you Pray for guidance for yourself and for God to continue to Bless America!!
Next you get to work by Questioning with Boldness, Hold to the Truth and SPEAK WITHOUT FEAR just as Pope John Paul ll did in Poland and just as Ronald Reagan did in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate.
Speaking of these two great men let's be inspired!!
Twenty years ago, on November 9, 1989, the most visible symbol of totalitarian evil, the Berlin Wall, tumbled down, how did that happen you may ask?
It was when men of great faith John Paul ll and Ronald Reagan came together in defense of freedom and human dignity.
As seen in the new film "Nine Days that Changed the World."
The Victory of the Cross "Everyone recalls that President Reagan, in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, famously called upon Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall." But rarely does the media take note of the most important passage from Reagan's 1987 Berlin Wall speech, in which he described the "root of the matter" and the "fundamental distinction between East and West." Said Reagan: "The totalitarian world produces backwardness because it does such violence to the spirit, thwarting the human impulse to create, to enjoy, to worship."
Reagan then went on to ridicule how "[t]he totalitarian world finds even symbols of love and of worship an affront." He pointed to the frantic behavior of the Communist East German government to correct with paints and chemicals what they found to be a major flaw in the glass sphere of the massive communications towers they built in 1969. Reagan noted that these actions were to no avail, as "even today when the sun strikes that sphere--that sphere that towers over all Berlin--the light makes the sign of the cross."
On the same day, 220 miles away on the peninsula of Westerplatte, near Gdansk, Pope John Paul II was once again rallying his countrymen and women to a heroic defense of truth and human values amidst life under totalitarianism. In the very place where World War II began when a vastly outnumbered garrison of 182 Polish soldiers held out for a week against a surprise attack of 3,500 elite German troops, the Pope said to the young people assembled: "Each of you, my young friends, finds in life some personal 'Westerplatte.' Some measure of tasks that have to be undertaken and fulfilled. Some rightful cause for which one cannot avoid fighting. Some duty, necessity, which one cannot shun. One cannot desert. Finally--some order of truth and values, which must be held and defended, like this Westerplatte, within oneself and around oneself."
In a place remembered for Polish heroism, the Pope recalled the reflections of a Polish martyr of the concentration camps: "More horrifying than a defeat of arms is the defeat of the human spirit."
While June 1987 would ultimately prove to be the final stage of the Cold War, Reagan and the Pope had been stressing the primacy of the spiritual struggle against Communism since each took office. In his 1981 Notre Dame commencement address, four months into his presidency, Reagan issued this rallying cry: "For the West, for America, the time has come to dare to show to the world that our civilized ideas, our traditions, our values, are not--like the ideology and war machine of totalitarian societies--just a facade of strength. It is time for the world to know our intellectual and spiritual values are rooted in the source of all strength, a belief in a Supreme Being, and a law higher than our own."
In his "Evil Empire" speech in 1983, Reagan said, "I've always maintained that the struggle now going on for the world will never be decided by bombs or rockets, by armies or military might. The real crisis we face today is a spiritual one; at root, it is a test of moral will and faith. . . . I believe we shall rise to the challenge. . . . I believe this because the source of our strength in the quest for human freedom is not material, but spiritual. And because it knows no limitation, it must terrify and ultimately triumph over those who would enslave their fellow man."
From his election in October 1978, Pope John Paul II constantly preached that it was only through Jesus Christ that man could fully understand his great dignity and his future vocation and therefore no country had the right to exclude Christ from its history. When the Pope preached this message in June 1979 in Warsaw's Victory Square, on an altar with the backdrop of a 50-foot cross, one million of his fellow Poles responded in affirmation with 14 minutes of applause, interrupted by singing in one voice: Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat (Christ Conquers, Christ Reigns, Christ Governs). In an officially atheistic country, the Polish people dramatically bore witness that God was sovereign, not the state.Read the original article here...
My friends it is time for Stupak Catholics to unite with our fellow Christians and Jews and fight for Freedom in America.
Our Berlin Wall is calling and we must step up to the plate just as Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul ll did.
Here is where to start fighting for Freedom now.
What the Stupak Amendment has done is made Catholics sit up and pay attention. Now it is up to us to work with our Fellow Americans to defeat the Obama/Pelosi/Reed Saul Alinsky agenda.
