TFP praying outside area mills 07/26-07/27/15 July 24, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Admin, contraception, Dallas Diocese, General Catholic, Tradition, Virtue.
Just a quick notice and request, members of Tradition, Family, and Property are going to be praying outside area mills this Sunday and Monday. I’m not sure of their schedule. I think this is the group based more or less out of Tyler. Anyway they are coming to Dallas to pray outside mills and they are looking for a place to stay Sunday and Monday night. They will stay anywhere, sleep on the floor, etc., but they have one requirement: no teenage girls. Anything else is fine. I assume relative proximity to the two remaining mills would be a plus.
If you think you have an ability to help you can contact Joanne Underwood at the Dallas CPLC.
BTW, I know some readers have issues with TFP but I do think they’ve written one of the best responses to the diabolical Obergefell decision I’ve read. It brings out a number of important points, including the fact that even the very hostile dissenting views expressed by some justices are deficient in that they ignore the natural law:
Regrettably, Chief Justice Roberts’ dissent was weak and included concessions to the homosexual movement such as: “Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us….” “Although the policy arguments for extending marriage to same-sex couples may be compelling….” “The people of a State are free to expand marriage to include same-sex couples, or to retain the historic definition.”
More importantly, Roberts’ dissent shares by omission in the majority’s implied denial of the obligation of every man, and therefore of society, to do good and to avoid evil. There is no discussion much less condemnation of the unnaturalness and intrinsic immorality of the homosexual act, which lies at the root of every same-sex “marriage.”
With the attention of America riveted on the issue, Roberts’ dissent could have been used as an ideal “teaching moment” that a moral wrong can never become a civil right, steering America’s conservative reaction onto the high ground where it belongs……..
……Of the three other dissenting opinions only that of Justice Thomas comes close to mentioning our obligations under Natural Law, but only in a fleeting manner. He quotes John Locke and Thomas Rutherforth but does not develop this line of thought. While he expounds ably our constitutional political liberty and correctly denounces the majority’s misconception of the physical liberty alluded to in the Fourteenth Amendment, he does not denounce their erroneous view of man’s moral liberty.
Both majority and dissenting opinions talk about the impact of this decision on the free exercise of religion in America. The latter show evident concern that it stands threatened, and they should be worried. Just as the homosexual movement fought for the legalization of same-sex “marriage” so that homosexuality would be accepted as normal and homosexual acts would be considered equal to the marital act, it will now push to further erode and eventually extirpate the expression of Christian morality from society.
This decision increases the country’s growing polarization. If before this decision anti-discrimination laws around the country were already being used to elevate homosexuals to a privileged class, giving rise to many incidents of egregious and unjust persecution (e.g. bakers, florists, photographers, CEOs, teachers, etc.), what will the nation witness in the decision’s wake?
