Independence, or not

4th of July -cancelled, Independence Day lives on

Old Uncle Milton got a phone call from Huntington County Emergency Management *reminding* that the whole county is under a burn ban due to the drought.  Campfires and fireworks are prohibited until further notice.  And the municipal fireworks displays in the county seat and the other big city of Warren have been postponed.

Fourth of July has been put on hold.

And the laughably “Supreme” ruling?

Those egregious bastards that wear robes and don’t sing with Diana Ross that refer to themselves as “supremes” as in supreme court, reinforced that they know who signs their paychecks, and guess what?  IT AIN’T YOU.

Oh, sure, you pay the taxes that the ruling class supremes derive their salary from.  But when push comes to shove, the ruling class will ALWAYS find a way to wordsmith their interpretation of things to further increase the power of the state over the power of the individual.  And so, even though the village idiot could figure out that the patient protection and care act (Oh! No! Bamacare) has NO authority for existence, the supremes *ruled* that the law is, uh, C-O-N-S-T-I-T-U-T-I-O-N-A-L.

And the Catholic Bishops said___

We will not comply.  The Catholic Bishops of America have publicly stated that they will not violate their own conscience, and they will not surrender their own right to freedom of religion.  They also published what Old Uncle Milton found to be a beautiful prayer.

O GOD OUR CREATOR,

from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  You have called on us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your son Jesus Christ.  Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.  Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome- for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us- this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
