VOTING ON TRUTH?
Is 'truth' subject to democratic procedures? Can we vote on whether something is objectively true or not?
"It is a mistake to apply American democratic procedures to the faith and the truth; you cannot take a vote on the truth" [Saint Pope John Paul]. Unfortunately, secular values have infiltrated religion more than religion has infiltrated secular culture. Values shape a person’s attitudes. Attitudes shape a person’s actions. Actions shape a nation’s future. "Today as in the past, people who wish to be Christ's disciples are called to go against the tide" - Pope Benedict XVI. Don’t go with the flow, many saints will be forged in the crucible of fire in the 3rd Millennium, make sure you are among them. Remember our Lord said, “Do not fear, only believe…” (Luke 8:50).
