I know it’s a hassle to stop down and listen to an audio only file.  I know we’re all busy.  But stop reading my blog, at least today.  Instead, listen to this, the best, most comprehensive deconstruction of the entire contraception-abortion complex and the devastating complicity that protestants and far too many Catholics, including almost all bishops over the past 40 years, have played in creating it:

http://www.audiosancto.org/auweb/20120122-The-Sanctity-of-Marriage-We-Are-Left-to-Battle-Paganism-On-Our-Own.mp3

This priest ties together 80 years of history to show precisely how we have arrived exactly at the point we are at, today, where the federal government has a knife to the Church’s throat and is forcing the formal adoption of contraceptive use through medical insurance plans.  It’s way better than anything I could write.  It’s  material you won’t hear anywhere else, given by a speaker who is sublime.  Do yourself a favor, take 38 minutes at lunch, and listen to the entire sermon.  I believe you will be most glad that you did!

Some significant quotes that bookend the sermon:

Since a week ago last Saturday, we can no longer expect them to defend the law of God. These sects will work out the very logic of their ways, and in 50 or 100 years there will be only the [Catholic] Church and paganism. We will be left to fight the battle alone, and we will.
–Then-father Fulton J. Sheen, March 1931, reacting to the United States Federal Council of Churches of Christ endorsement of the use contraception by married couples

Is it imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres. The seriousness of these threats needs to be clearly appreciated at every level of ecclesial life.
–Pope Benedict 16th, January 19, 2012, to the Archbishop of Washington DC and the bishops of the surrounding areas

Dominus Vobiscum!

Having had to stand by, watch this happen, & be ignored when we spoke out, there are many of us “Old” Catholics who tried to sound the alarm. I respectfully disagree with this good priest tho’. I don’t believe it’s going to take 50-100 years before we have “actions” taken against us. First will come the political upheaval, civil riots breaking out, but the spiritual elements will be there for those who can see.

The 50-100 years was from a quote made by Fulton Sheen in 1931. We’re well into that timeframe at present, and his prophesy looks amazingly prescient.

[…] away Catholic (another victory for St. Mark CCD!), now militant atheist.  So, in response to that sermon, he sent me this: “I heartily enjoy many “San Francisco behaviors”, thank you […]
