Cardinal George writes here on the direction our country is going. Among other things he comments on the prevailing tendency by Hilary Clinton and the Obama administration to change the term “freedom of religion” to “freedom of worship.”

 “Freedom of worship was guaranteed in the Constitution of the former Soviet Union,” Cardinal George said. “You could go to church, if you could find one. The church, however, could do nothing except conduct religious rites in places of worship—no schools, religious publications, health care institutions, organized charity, ministry for justice and the works of mercy that flow naturally from a living faith. All of these were co-opted by the government. We fought a long Cold War to defeat that vision of society.”

By the way, lest any reader berate me for being “political”, I guess if it’s good enough for Cardinal George to comment on these matters publicly it’s okay for me too.
