Racial equality, religion, and truth matter. They’re bigger than man. They’re in every man’s heart and soul, always and forever. Why are they being threatened? By whom?
The sad truth is that we all are threatening them. Some of us by design, and some of us by passive acquiescence. Some of us in search of power and wealth, and some of us who search for nothing.
We cannot survive without them. Not as a civilization. Not individually. Not any more than we can survive without food and water. They are the nourishment of our soul.
Teaching that White babies are bad from birth eats at our soul. As does excluding parents from the education of their children. And forcing inner-city children to attend failed schools. And designating an atheist to be an Ivy League university’s head chaplain (no kidding). And killing babies as their heads begin to crown.
Judging people by the color of their skin blinds us to racial equality. As does legislating in favor of one race over another. And enforcing the law based on which race agrees with the law. And removing our Founding Fathers, national birth date, national flag, and national anthem from our national history and culture in the name of racial equity.
Removing meanings from words makes truth unknowable. Words such as news, social justice, gender identity, unity, social justice, journalism, racist, public servant, elite, one person one vote, campaign promise, and government of by and for the people.
Declaring that words don’t matter makes truth impossible. When “I remember landing under sniper fire” proved to be untrue, and the former First Lady’s explanation was “I say a lot of things — millions of words a day — so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement”, she declared truth to be of little importance. May truth rest in peace.
The government’s advocacy and legislation against the Catholic Church’s beliefs about abortion and the Sacrament of the Eucharist make the First Amendment’s promise of the free exercise of religion hollow. And makes man hollow.
An America led by a President who can’t see past the color of a man’s skin makes racial equality impossible. “If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t Black”. With Barak Obama, “you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean”. KKK member Senator Robert Byrd was “one of my mentors”.
Issues higher than man are within everyone’s heart and soul, since the birth of man, always and forever. Racial equality, religion, and truth are what man yearns for, are what nourish man, are what bless man’s life. May those of us who live lives of passive acquiescence, who search for nothing, be blessed with something more, with something that lifts man above man. May 2022 be the year it happens.
