President Obama’s support among Catholics eroded in the 2012 election over 2008. Still, he won 51% of the Catholic vote.  The administration’s forcing of Catholic institutions to violate their religious doctrine, mandating they pay for sterilization, contraception and abortifacient drugs in their insurance policies, didn’t resonate with enough of the community.  They can’t shoulder all the blame.  Many alleged news outlets neglected to cover the story about the largest religious lawsuit in the nation’s history filed by Catholics to stop the Obamacare mandate.  Still it begs the question, if a majority of Catholics can’t stand up for themselves, why should the rest of the country?   Left-wingers oppose crosses on public land.  They’ve targeted the Ten Commandments in court houses.  They’ve even attacked Charlie Brown.  The Arkansas Society of Free Thinkers protested school kids being taken to see the play, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at a church.  The so-called “free thinkers” said, “While everyone loves Charlie Brown, the religious content of the program is a problem, as is the trip to a church to see it.”  The community in Little Rock Arkansas greeted the controversy with a collective, “ho-hum”.  Did it ever occur to the “free thinkers” that perhaps parents and kids deserved a choice?  Why do the kids, whose parents have no problem with religion, have to miss out because a select few find religion objectionable?  Just opt out.  But that would be too democratic. And the left can’t have that.  The tyrannical minority must impose their will on the majority under the cloak of tolerance.  A moral people would recognize the “free thinker’s” actions as being anything but tolerant.  But it seems America is finally succumbing to the relentless left-wing onslaught and losing our moral core.

We repudiate all morality which proceeds from supernatural ideas or ideas which are outside the class conception. In our opinion, morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of the class war. Everything is moral which is necessary for the annihilation of the old exploiting order and for uniting the proletariat.  Those words, in one form or another, are found in the mission statements of most left-wing groups in America.  Hell, it was the template of Obama 2012 campaign.  The fact that the American left’s agenda meshes so perfectly with the words of Vladimir Lenin, should shock any freedom loving American.   In 1787, Alexander Fraser Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee, observed the progression of great societies.  He contended that democracies, “will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”  Time was that a majority of Americans fought the immorality the left was selling, if only as a means of avoiding the whole dictatorship thing.   But Americans are increasingly deciding that the moral battles are no longer worth fighting. They forget morality was primarily responsible for our nation’s greatest historical successes. And liberals are giddy at the prospect that Americans are losing faith, literally and figuratively.  They’ve convinced a majority of us that a moral center is no longer required.  They think we’re that stupid.  The question remains, when will men and women of good conscience stop proving them right?
