Ever Wonder Why Many Are Blind to the Arbitrary and Capricious Nature of the HHS Mandate?

Perhaps it has something to do with what we occupy our minds with?

Nah…surely it’s not because we’re being bombarded with highbrow propaganda material like this.

It’s become a worldwide phenomenon.

Even the folks at Slate have noticed.

Nah…maybe it’s just a Jedi mind trick. McDonalds, 160+ unions, and a whole host of others are exempt. Nothing to see here.

Move along.

    This is why I always turn over Cosmopolitan magazine in the checkout aisle at stores, along with any other publication that shows a scantily-clad woman on the front or has large lettering about sex and orgasms. It may not have much of an impact, but it’s my form of civil disobedience showing that I as a young woman do not want to be bombarded with these false messages and I don’t want to see these images.

    Valerie, Wow! I thought I was the only one who did that sort of thing to protest the immorality that our secular society thrusts onto us in subtle and not so subtle ways. There are images and words that I do not want to enter my mind or to invade the minds of others, tempting them to sin. To counter these false images, I sometimes leave behind in public places, printed materials (Catholic magazines, brochures, leaflets, booklets, etc.) which contain the truth. I also say a prayer that these publications will enter the hands of those who are most in need of them and penetrate their souls. Other times, I simply share them with those to whom the Holy Spirit guides me. I feel that, while the secular culture attempts to break down our culture, that, we as Catholics, must react to this, by finding positive ways to build up our culture, in little ways, everyday. This is what we do to live out our faith in the truth. It is what we are called to do — to spread the gospel message.
