If accused I will be convicted

Jan_Hus_at_the_StakeOver the years, I’ve heard or read a question that always provokes my heart and mind.  It goes something like this:  “If you were arrested by an anti-Christian government, would there be enough evidence to convict you?”

Just to be clear:  I’m not especially brave, am seldom accused of great nobility and have no desire to die a martyr.  (You don’t have to be burned at the stake to get into heaven, or so I’ve been told.)

Just the same, I think real persecution is approaching and I want to remove any doubt by providing future prosecutors/persecutors all the evidence against me that they will need.  Here are a few of the things I believe:

  • Everybody ought to obey all 10 of the 10 Commandments.
  • St John Paul II got it right with his Theology of the Body.
  • The world would be a better place if everyone followed the teachings in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
  • Every human being deserves compassion and respect, but that doesn’t mean you accept everything they do or approve of everything they believe.
  • Marriage is between one man and one woman.
  • There are only two legitimate genders of human being: male and female.
  • Christianity is a religion of peace; Islam is a religion of violence.
  • Abortion is murder.
  • Boys should use the boys’ bathroom; girls should use the girls’ bathroom.
  • I want my priest to decide when I’m dead, not a government bureaucrat.

I would go on…but I figure this is enough.  I hear the heavy boots of the thought police approaching.
