It’s a good win . . . for now

June 30, 2014

The Supreme Court has ruled by the narrowest of margins that Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to provide insurance for its employees that includes contraception coverage. It’s a nice win, but it’s hard to get really excited about it.

In the current understanding of the separation of church and state, secularists seem to believe all the “church” gets is what’s inside its walls (for the time being, anyway). Everything outside church walls belongs to the non-religious. By a very narrow margin (5-4) the Supreme Court has caused a delay in the march of secular domination. However, peace will not prevail until the religious are properly tamed.

Yesterday I read an article by a homosexual atheist (the writer himself made a point of that) who wants religious people to not hide in their bunkers but come out and add their two-cents-worth to society. Isn’t that nice! I have a sneaking feeling that two cents is about all he would like them to add.

This brings to mind Jesus’ castigation of some people for the attitude they had toward John the Baptist:

“To what then shall I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like?  They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, “‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not weep.’” (Lk. 7:31-32)

There are plenty of people, including some in powerful positions, who will not rest until we dance their dance (and then go back to our corners).
