This new report from Families Valued and the Center for Public Justice explores the topic of time as it relates to family life and family stress.
The ECLJ, with the help of Adeline le Gouvello de La Porte, esq. wrote and lodged the formal application of Bruno Pichon, pharmacist, at the European Court of Human Rights concerning the violation of his freedom of conscience. He had been condemned in 2016 for refusing to sell an IUD because of the contragestive effects of that product.
‘Anti-This and That-Phobic’
That thinking has led to vicious attacks against Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation mainly due to his stance on protecting traditional marriage and, in his new book When Harry Became Sally, taking on transgenderism.
“I’ve been called everything under the sun: anti-this and that-phobic,” Anderson said. His reaction? “I just don’t let it get to me. Because ultimately what they’re trying to do by calling you a name is simply trying to intimidate you or to shame you or to do so to the people who might follow you.”
Cannon pointed out the extreme labels used against those who take politically incorrect positions, stating, “The go-to ones are ‘transphobic,’ ‘racist.'”
If you are reading this and sense that you have fallen into a bit of “Catholic pharisaism,” please do not worry, but simply go to confession and give your heart back to the Lord. Ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you in the Sacraments, in the Priesthood, in the maternal intercession of Mary our Mother, in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit this Pentecost, and in the silence of your heart before the Thrice Holy God. Then you will truly be living the Catholic faith as taught by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It is my hope that these pages will prove helpful by enabling the whole Church to devote herself anew to promoting the desire for holiness. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us a fervent longing to be saints for God’s greater glory, and let us encourage one another in this effort. In this way, we will share a happiness that the world will not be able to take from us.
