I will be on vacation until January 15. I will, however, be updating the Real Clear News sidebar while I am away.

We are all witnessing the growing persecution of the Church in what were once Christian nations. These nations are slowly taking on a fascist character that seeks to stamp out religion and religious expression. In Canada a so-called human rights commission is in hot pursuit of truth teller Mark Steyn for Islamophobia and Catholic Insight Magazine for homophobia. In Spain a Protestant is being investigated by the government for attempting to "cure" homosexuality while a Catholic cleric is likewise being investigated for comments that are seen as offending homosexuals.

The pace at which religious hatred is growing is alarming. But this was all prophesied by good and holy men and women throughout the centuries. They all hauntingly repeat that a great chastisement will occur due to the loss of the Faith. The Catholic Church in particular will have much to suffer. Islam is predicted to be used as one instrument of chastisement. But the enemies of Christ


Our culture is immersed in temporal and material cares while we abandon our children to state run schools that have adopted all sorts of godless agendas. While we are consumed by consumerism, and absorbed into the culture, our children are robbed of the truth and beauty of a life of Faith.

(Code of Canon Law of 1917, Canon 1113) We will be judged as parents by how we rear our children. Because of this clear teaching, we can no longer deny that the environment of most public schools with their aggressive sex “education” programs, pro-homosexual social clubs, and the muzzling of all mention of God, is indeed deadly to the souls of our youth. Yet we have swallowed the entire concept of State-dominated indoctrination of our children-- hook, line and sinker. What effect does an education which is silent about our Creator, and the purpose of our existence have on a child's character? Ignorance of such matters can only breed proud fools.

But go back in time less than a century and there were still voices questioning and even condemning the entire notion of a free compulsory secular education for the masses. One such critic was Hilaire Belloc who stresses over and over
