The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

The thoughts expressed here are my personal thoughts and sometimes reflect my political views. As a private citizen I have every right to express these views.

Marriage, Civilization's Cornerstone

I've written occasionally on the dangers of the ongoing massive effort to redefine marriage as something other than the sacramental union of a man and a woman. I've always seen this as a key battle in the cultural war being waged throughout the world today. This morning my daughter pointed me to an article that describes the battle and its potential consequences. It was written by Don Feder, a long-time acquaintance and a man for whom I have tremendous respect. Don is a believing, practicing Jew and can always be counted on to inject the reality of common sense into any discussion. In this instance Don is reminding conservatives, particularly all those fiscal conservatives, of the permanent things that must be preserved and cherished if our Judeo-Christian civilization is to survive.

I recommend reading his column. And for those of you who are unquestioning Glenn Beck fans, I highly recommend it:  If Marriage Is Lost, We Lose Everything.

Pray for our nation...
