As far as I can remember recently, any time the Catholic Church, a politician, a corporation or actor said something moral against the politically incorrect morals, there has been a huge media attack frenzy. Instantly, they create a huge media blitz against that person or institution who might dare hold and express these morals in the public forum. And almost instantly, that person apologizes for their politically incorrect statement on having stated a Christian teaching.
Where are the apologies to God for cowardly denying His morals to save face or to handle a media storm? Jesus told what would happen to Catholics and other christians if they act in this way. “For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:38
Jesus points out the sexual and sinful environment that would cause Catholics and christians to deny Him as is done to please, not only adulterous people have remarried after being married in the Catholic Church, but also homosexuals.
Finally we have some good news. The Cracker Barrel corporations has gone along with the christian pressure in support of the christian patriarch Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty and reversed its actions against him. They have reversed the removal of any merchandise that had anything to do with Phil because of the strong christian out cry.
“Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores,” Cracker Barrel stated. “And, we apologize for offending you.”
Long time ago, before most of you were born, there was a political saying: “The Silent Majority” who had morals and were traditional. I often reflect on that saying. Now I think we could correctly say “The Silent Minority” who have traditional christian morals. I think I would also be even more correct when I say that there is a “Very Small Minority” of Catholics who hold traditional Catholic morals. Almost all the pew surveys show Catholics as being more accepting of the sins of abortion, homosexual marriage, divorce, living together and birth control than the average American.
All this is because the pope, bishops, priests, religious and parents have given into the politically incorrect morals of the world. And those who still believe these are grave sins are afraid to say anything because it causes Catholics to get mad at them and leave the Church.
People will leave the Church whether or not we speak Jesus’ truths. We need to be faithful to Him and His Church not the world. The world never gave its life for us out of love like Jesus did. Jesus said the world hated Him and will hate His followers (us).
So this is a very positive thing that the Cracker Barrel did. Thanks be to God for a tiny bit of good news in a totally degenerating society that each one of us lives in and are affected by every minute. It may have been only motivated by customers willing to boycott them, which equals lost money. But at least God’s morals have not been trampled on again by the politically correct devil and his friends in society and the media.
