I just wanted to ask you if you know of an official Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity to the Pope and Magisterium which Catholic high schools could administer to religion teachers? Also- what is your view in light of President Obama’s strong moves to promote open homosexuality in the Military to an informal boycott of faithful Catholics from entering the Armed Services- especially since part of the basis for removing Don’t Ask was that the Military would not be impacted in any significant way.
I’m afraid I don’t know about any such oath. But since I am an ignoramus about such matters, that means little. Maybe my readers do. Anyone?
I don’t think a boycott on serving in the armed forces is particularly going to help anything. I think Obama’s attempt at socially engineering the military is going to end badly and that having Catholics with a head on their shoulders is going to be vital for picking up the pieces when this dumb imposition of ideology crashes and burns. The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things, not to make gays (or any other needy narcissist) feel affirmed in their okayness. What somebody does in their off hours is nobody’s business. Making it be everybody’s business and then forcing them to approve of it is one of the most obnoxious traits of militant homosexuals. It’s something calculated to destroy the sort of unit cohesion the military requires. Live your life without getting up in everybody’s grille and ordinary people don’t care what you do in the privacy of your own home. Perpetually demand they approve of you and you make everybody sick of you doubletime. In an Empire like ours that is secured by an all-volunteer force, it is folly to alienate the bulk of your troops with such experimentation on their patience.
