Opinion: We Are Living in 1984 Comments

I'm not going to belabor all the parallels we could find in current society regarding "Big Brother," the thought police, the various government agencies, revisionist history and language (which Orwell called "Newspeak"), not to mention sexuality gone out-of-control. Dwelling on all this could put some of us in the same place as the protagonist in the novel, Winston Smith, who at the end of the novel awaits what he expects will be his execution ...

    Thank you for this article! It is right on point and so needed, we must constantly renew ourselves with the word and the Holy Spirit WILL guide us. God creates miracles, I can personally attest! Prayer wins over evil in every situation in God’s own time. I am afraid to have to say that the reality of 1984 is real and now as they have weaponized the electromagnetic spectrum. Energy is the source of everything, even down to our electrochemical system bodies! There are 1000’s of us (in the US alone) who are nonconsensual victims of this unseen, heinous (Organized Stalking/Electronic Harassment) crimes occurring. Infact, it appears as though the paradigm that was in place in Hitler’s time is the blue print of a lot of the activities occurring now in our country and the way it is moving. *We need to pray everyday for our world, our country and its leaders, and especially our lost society who is so numbed down by the media, music, etc that their eternities are in jeopardy.* When I heard the term the “thought police” I too remember believing these things just don’t happen, but indeed they do, as I now know. Ultra sophisticated technology is real and in use. There is a satanic agenda for this world and we are dealing with spiritual warfare. Of course they want to silence us, because our faith is the true beacon of hope and they want to corrupt as many unsaved souls as possible! The time is now for us to stand firm and give in to nothing but what is right and continue to be the testimony for God and his salvation!!!

    @JJ D. "Same-sex marriage" is a misnomer. Marriage is the complementarity of two different sexes. When Christ spoke of marriage, He always talked about male and female becoming one. What beliefs do you ascribe to? Catholics follow the teachings of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church, founded by Christ Himself. It is obedience to Christ that leads to true freedom. Calling whatever whims we have religious freedoms is one of Satan's tricks. Up until legislation for same-sex unions hit the courts, the Catholic Church was not in the business of "re-writing laws to deprive others of their religious freedoms," as you claim. What we're standing up against now is the blatant disregard of natural law, which is a participation in the Divine Law. God bless you.

    I think you are more than welcome to speak against same sex marriage. I think what people object to, is your use of the law to control them and prevent them from living THEIR life based on their beliefs. What could be more Orwellian than re-writing laws to deprive others of their religious freedoms. HYPOCRITES!
