Christians Squeezed out of Commerce and Public Office: Persecution in New Mexico and Texas Comments

On Thursday, August 22, 2013, five Justices of the New Mexico Supreme Court told Jonathan and Elaine Huguenin they could no longer be wedding photographers because they are Christians who take their faith as a guide for every area of their life.

    In light of what is reported as happening in New Mexico and Texas isn't it time that the billion Catholics of the world stood up and were counted? If we truly believe in Christ's teachings must we cease ignoring the plight of the persecuted and the creeping (galloping) tide of exclusion of Catholic belief from the governments of the world, to be replaced by the worship of money. Are we cowards hiding behind a servile smile? Surely we remember Christ's turning over the tables of the userers and his savage indictment of the hypocrites--the whited sepulchres. Considering the silence of many of the bishops and priests and those within the Church who actively oppose God's laws from within there must be a great revolution of those who do believe, truly believe in our Catholic faith. It is all very well to harp on love, while untold numbers of souls are being lost through the vicious and evil campaign. After all as the man said if good people do nothing they are as culpable as the perpertrators.

    Thank you again for an informative article. The Communist Democrat Party has been easing the Christian community out of the public square with no push back from the Bishops and priests. In many cases, the Bishops and priests have a party to this. The chief opposition to the communists are Conservative politicians and Talk Show hosts. Obama and the Communist Democrat Party said they won't enforce the HHS Mandate until after the 2014 mid term elections. Then it will be No Holds Bar. The Church will receive the same treatment as the New Mexico Photographers who refused to photograph a homosexual wedding. In the mean time, 52% of the Catholics will vote for Communist Democrats come 2014 while the priests and Bishops sit there with their mouths shut.

    It is clear that the "Gay agendas" are come as the clear marker differeciating the ways of Jesus & the Adversary through."Tempting" the Christians using the doctrine of Balaam as a stumbling Block to God. Judges & courts bought/brought in the leavens of Herod are no exceptions.
