New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has threatened to shut down churches and synagogues. He says ‘Religious Institutions Have Been A Problem.’
Not enough of one Mr. Governor. Not even close to enough of one.
Firstly, I don’t really care about what Cuomo said. We know what he thinks. We know what the left wants to do. That’s not the surprise. The only thing surprising about any of it is the lack of protest coming from the Church.
Christians have accommodated every push from the left. But turning the cheek doesn’t mean to acquiesce. I think we’ve forgotten that.
Catholic bishops and cardinals have smilingly stood with pro-abortion politicians, sat silently as marriage was redefined, and said nothing about the churches being closed because of #science. Even now, the basic ideas of gender are under attack. God created them male and female but the left knows better.
Turn the other cheek doesn’t mean to act like cowards. Christianity a revolutionary call. A radical call to light the world with love. Do our Church leaders act like they’re trying to evangelize the world. Are they sounding a countercultural clarion call?
We are in desperate need of heroes. They seem to be in short supply. Pray.

You should read about what Archbishop Cordileone has done in San Francisco as an example of someone in the Catholic Church actually fighting city officials to open churches. Through rallies and prayer services, he's been able to get San Francisco to open churches for public worship.

I pray others emulate him in that.

Once upon a time we had a pope who stared down Communism…
For that matter, NY had an archbishop who would have roared "Over my dead body!"
I miss those days.
