It took my native country decades to produce the mess we have today. I'll be pleasantly surprised if respect for human life and religious liberty are restored quickly: but I expect that it will be a long process.
I am convinced that as the results of the last half-century's foolishness become harder to ignore, more folks will:
- Stop insisting that
- Realize that
I've posted about natural law, cause and effect, and consequences, before:

- " 'Legal' isn't Necessarily Right: My Take on Supreme Court Rulings"
(June 29, 2012)
- "America, Racism, and What Didn't Happen at Virginia Tech"
Another War-on-Terror Blog (January 22, 2009)
- "Dred Scott, the Slavery Compromise, and Who to Trust"
(February 2, 2009)
I can, however, suggest studying what Catholic bishops in America have written about religious freedom and ethics; and it probably won't hurt to tell you where a list of my posts is:
- "Freedom of Religion: Resource Lists"
Mostly from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
- "Working Toward a Better World"
Link list of posts in this blog
You may find a link list of today's three posts, and others, useful. Then again, maybe not:
