John would not back down concerning the truth about marriage. He faced a ruler who became outraged over that fact and turned the wrath of his worldly power against him. When John became aware that his life was in danger, he could have remained silent. But he knew, as we do, that the truths we proclaim are not just our "religious convictions", they are revealed by God through a Natural Moral Law. They pave the path to freedom and goodness for every man, woman, child and culture. He was a man willing to lose human respect. He also lost his life. Are willing to imitate his courage in our own day?
