Attacking Christianity


The European Union is trying to eradicate all presence of Christianity.
ROME, November 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The recent decision by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) condemning the display of crucifixes in Italian public schools could result in the removal of all public displays of a Christian origin in all public buildings of Europe under the newly passed Lisbon Treaty, a British legal expert has warned.

You can read more here. Let us pray that the Italian people are courageous and successful in fighting this tyranny which denies their heritage and their faith. This is just the tip of the iceberg in the attempt to replace religion with government.
Our schools have become a battleground. The forces of evil know that children are our future; something that pro life people also know and that men and women who are so self-absorbed that they choose to abort their children seem to have forgotten. The children of the world are under attack in their schools and parents are being stripped of their power to protect them by the laws of their country. Home schooling has been outlawed in at least one European country, and is under attack in others. Why? Because government wants to control children, to force them into accepting their version of the world. The sad thing is that most governments are elected, most laws voted on. People who have an agenda make the most noise and get the most attention, as is evident by the progress made by the homosexualist and pro abortion activists. We cannot fight evil by shrugging our shoulders and expecting someone else to fight the battle. We must speak up and fight for our faith and our beliefs. I am happy that the US Bishops are speaking up on the health care bill, but so much more needs to be done. I hope and pray that more parents will take their children out of State run schools, and either home school or start schools where they are allowed to teach their children the morals and values of a society that values faith and life according to God's plan. We are under attack, as Fr. Corapi says, this is spiritual warfare. Tomorrow we give honor to those who gave their life to protect our country from tyranny, are we going to let tyranny sneak in the back door, one little law at a time?

many governments past and present and future will try to eradicate our Faith. and they will fail. Jesus said, have courage, and be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world. so no matter what it is, or what they try to do, it will fail.

this is exactly what He said:


From the DRV - John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world." - Jesus

My point is that just because we know that we win in the end it's no excuse to allow evil to flourish unchecked.

that is true.

The thought of those Italian schools with nary a crucifix breaks my heart ...
