Lady Liberty is under direct assault from liberal mobs who don't give a hoot for law except to use it as a bludgeon to target those who disagree with them. Hence we have Obamacare pounding people of conscience and federal and local laws designed to suppress dissent and deny reality.
Instead of living in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we are living in the land of the over-regulated and the home of the wimps. What must our Founding Fathers think of the California law that allows "transgendered" people to use restrooms, showers, locker rooms, etc. that correspond to the way they feeeeeeel instead of the biological reality of who they are. Feeling like a woman will NEVER turn a biological male into a biological female. Little boys will still be little boys no matter how many tutus hang in the closet or how many operations disfigure their bodies.
But, as the Christophers say, it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. Each of us is responsible to be a light in his own family and community. Like the glorious little sparks of light in the June sky, each of us can be like the little firefly who twinkles in the night. Darkness can never overcome the light, because darkness is nothing! It is simply the absence of light. So each time one of us lights up, darkness is defeated. And while many serve the darkness, like the Texas pro-aborts chanting, "Hail, Satan!", they are doomed to ultimate defeat because they serve an already-vanquished prince. May they change allegiances before they share his doom!
So light your lamp and place it on the lampstand to give light to all in the house. And when you watch the fireworks tonight, remember to shine your glorious light of Christian truth and love for all the world to see. Will you pray the rosary today for our country and push back the darkness? That's my plan.
