I took my title from the Catacombs of Ancient Rome. For years, the catacombs were the safe hiding place for Christians who were being persecuted. Today in America, you may not be stoned for your faith. But you will be laughed out of most scientific communities for suggesting that the earth may be less than 70 billion years old, or that perhaps there was a divine hand guiding the process of evolution. You will be told that you are a bigot if you refuse to embrace the moral relativism that defines our culture.
Over the last few years, I have really started to sink my teeth into politics. Almost more than Christianity, Conservatism in general is on the chopping block.You will be called a racist if you think your tax money should not be spent to support those who do not work. You will be branded an idiot if you suggest that criminals are responsible for their own actions. And you will be called anti-woman if you stand against the slaughter of the unborn. What used to be called patriotism is now looked upon as intolerant.
Welcome to the Catacombs. This is a place for all you conservative, bigoted, racist, idiotic, intolerant misogynists.
All joking aside, in Rome the voices of Christians were not silenced even though they were confined to the catacombs. Let's not let the voices of Christians and conservatives in America be silenced in our lifetime.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”
