The keyboard is mightier than the sword!

With a part time job, a blog, a household to manage, and oh, yes, homeschooling three children; I am VERY busy. But, that is not a good enough excuse not to fight the culture war; we are in crisis in America, and good Catholics cannot be silent while we slide into moral decline and our freedom of speech is endangered. We owe a decent country to our children.
Click here to view a short message from The Family Research Council on the Democrats' attempt to reintroduce hate crimes legislation and how it endangers our freedom to express Catholic teaching regarding sexual morality. There have already been Christians arrested merely for expressing their religious beliefs.
Remember the calls for the explulsion of General Pace because he dared to state Catholic teaching on homosexuality?
And besides sending emails to our elected officials,what can we do from the keyboard? Fr Frank Pavone encourages us to write letters to the editors of our local newspapers. Some of us shrink from that because we lack the information to back up our claims that traditional morality is not only right because it pleases God, but because His plan for the family is always healthier mentally, physically, and even financially, as well as spiritually. Priests for Life, Human Life International, The Population Research Institute, and now Family, an outreach of the Heritage Foundation are great resources for your letters to the editor.
Let me know when you get them published.
