I’ve been following a lot of what people have been saying post-election. Based on what I’m witnessing, it has come home to me that until the faithful can change the culture, our politics is just going to continue down the garden path to Hell. I know I’m tired of being taken for granted, & being told to vote for the lesser of two evils. The lesser of two evils is still evil, & I’m ashamed it took me so long to recognize that fact.
My husband is a convert, so I always feel I have to temper my zeal a little bit. We have to meet people where they are, right? But I think he has come around to the fact that we can no longer leave our children in public school. If we have to make some sacrifices, we must do these in order to make sure our children are educated properly, in the faith & in academics.
Basically, this is just a long-winded way of asking for an opinion, from you & all your readers. I’m trying to figure out what I can do to shield us as much as possible from Caesar, while we gird ourselves for the coming battles. As regards the HHS mandate, & it’s ridiculously stringent definition of what constitutes an exemption for religious orders, is there any benefit to looking into becoming a lay member of a religious order? I confess I am almost completely ignorant of such things. It’s been on my “someday I’ll have to look into that more” list (see convert husband), but maybe that day has arrived. I don’t have any legal expertise, but maybe one of your readers might be able to give an educated opinion on the matter.
I’m sorry this is so long, I know you have a lot on your plate. But thanks for letting me talk. I don’t object to your posting any of this, but I would prefer you to leave out my name, if you do. My husband is in the federal government, &, well, I don’t think I need to say any more, do I?
I’m useless here, but maybe some of my readers can help?
