“Wake up America”: Father Corapi on dereliction of duty
A short but extremely instructive video from the excellent Father Corapi, whom I can’t avoid thinking to as the Fulton Sheen of our times.
Father Corapi illustrates the following points:
1) we can be accessory to another person’ sin by silence. We can be accessory to a genocide many times the scale of the Holocaust, just by silence. The possibility of being accessory to another person’s sin seems to have disappeared from modern catechesis. We see the result of that in the legislative activity of even traditionally Catholic countries.
2) We must bring our conviction regarding the above to the ballot box. It is a dereliction of duty to think that one can be a Catholic himself whilst doing nothing to avoid the Country he lives in to reject Christian values.
3) This dereliction of duty is a much greater crime in those who have positions of public responsibility. The likes of Pelosi, Obama and Schwarzenegger will be judged much more harshly than the individuals whose soul they put in danger.
Father Corapi imperious call of “Wake Up America!” is in my eyes particularly apposite now, with the mid-term elections looming and the recent events in California showing how far Catholic representative of the people can go in betraying their religion and stabbing their electorate in the back.
