Sniffing Out Shifting Winds

The failures of a Catholic Education:

Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin told the Irish Times that the referendum amounts to a social revolution and the Catholic Church needs to do a reality check because “most of those people who voted yes [for homosexual marriages] are products of our Catholic schools for 12 years.”

Much the same can be said for the entire Western World – even Harvard was a Christian school, once upon a time. But then again, Western men – like all other men – have had a great distaste for Divine authority for a good long while now.

On the other hand, the end of the God-State is in sight. I have little doubt that the majority will merely erect new idols for old… but I am interested in what Christians will do, once freed from their chains.

Cry out for a new Pharaoh?

Or get serious about obeying God?My bed: a majority of Christians will do the escapist thing, or go in search of a new Political Leader to save them: probably some flavour of National Socialism, seasoned with some conservative blather here and there. But there will be no return to the mighty, patriotic, unified nation-states of old. Dogs return to their vomit… but that isn’t a threat to the world, just a pathetic longing for past glories. No millions of young men to waste (as they were killed off long ago, via abortion), no futurist dreams of unity (as today’s technology works to weaken states and fragment cultures, not unify them). Just so much let’s pretend as the future overwhelms the present.In contrast, a minority will take responsibility for their lives, and focus on building a better future under Christ, not in a retreat to the past. These are the Christians I’m interested in.
