Challenge of the Super Friends

The November 10th issue of Time had an article about a group of prominent and wealthy homosexuals, called The Cabinet [I guess The Closet was in use] who have banded together to use their money and connections to support GLBT organizations and to advance the leftist causes that support the usual favorite causes of these groups. Let's cut to the chase and say that most of what this group favors are contrary to Christian morals.

The article likened this group to a "gay Super Friends..a homosexual justice league that can swoop [I can't believe they didn't use "sashay"!]in wherever anti-gay candidates are threatening [to win?] and finance the [their words] good guys.

It occurs to me to wonder where are the REAL good guys with money? With a few prominent exceptions, there are not too many baptized believing CATHOLICS who have the money to further Christ's agenda.

Why is that?

My theory is that the real Christians follow the true Gospel message and they've given most, if not all of their money, to support Holy Church and its mission. They give their money to people in need. They don't give their money to further their personal agenda or the agenda of Satan.

Our forefathers, by and large, did not have a lot of money either. Yet, they sacrificed portions of what little money they had to the Church. Their humble contributions created missions and supported convents and monasteries. They also gave their time and their talents, with it they built cathedrals and schools.

Friends: In the end, we will not win this war with money. We will win this war by courageous example, by modeling the life of Christ, by using our words and our prayers-by teaching. By being unafraid to spread the Gospel, to believe and support the Magisterium, to use the Sacraments.

Aquaman was only useful when there was water nearby. We may not have the ability to send sea creatures into battle, but our ability to do battle is not limited to water. We are flexible. Armed with Christ, we can fight no matter what the circumstances. We need to be unafraid to engage.

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
with the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
forward into battle see his banners go!

It's probably a protestant song but I love it!

It was written by an Anglican minister!

Our Protestant brethren have done some pretty good hymns!

I don't like that song. But anyway, "I guess The Closet was in use."

You are BAD! :0)

The sad thing is even the great Protestant hymns are being weaned out in those churches too, being replaced by "modern worship" rock tunes written by Charismatics and pop writers with no respect of doctrine and theology.

Worst example of it: at a church, the entire pre-service music was dumped and replaced by teens dancing to all sorts of pop songs. Hello! We're not at a dance studio recital! We're in a House of Worship, and dancing to pop songs with no theology is NOT what we're here to do.

If you want to know where are the Catholics with money, all you have to do is hang around my school for a little while. My headmaster knows the ones in the Northwest suburbs, at least the ones with kids. One of them started the school by donating a 10 million dollar building. He was then able to finance more buildouts after that. I am sure that he gives money to political campaigns and such in addition to these educational endeavours.

I have come to see that there is also a vast network of businessmen and women, usually Christian, and often Catholic, who put their money to work fighting "the Cabinet" and other left-wing organizations. These folks will never have an article written about them, unless they are being called names such as "evil republican" or "corporate fatcat" or "racist homophobe." Most of them are just family people who are looking to do as much good as possible with the gifts God has blessed them with.

Geometricus: It seems to me though that they put their money to good use-to further solid Catholic education. Thanks for the reminder. I know they are out there but by and large I'm not sure they have enough money (nor the ear of the Hollywood and media left) that The Cabinet does.

The rest of you: "It's a Long Way to Tipperary!"
