This Is the America I Celebrate on July 4th.

Looking at the state of the nation, I wonder which America we are celebrating this July 4th. The nation is clearly divided, and thus many Americas appear. Not all are to be celebrated.

This year has been particularly marked by disunity and vitriol. One image that particularly stands out in my mind is the shockingly bloody representation of a beheaded president that recently went viral on social media.

I do not celebrate this America. Indeed, there are many Americas I do not celebrate.

I do not celebrate an America which applauds such gruesome portrayals of those they disagree with. Some may claim such depictions are expressions of freedom. However, such violent portrayals represent a horrific abuse not a healthy expression of freedom. This action and others like it deliberately offend, divide and terrorize the nation by breaking all standards of decency and morality that are the foundation of our unity.

I cannot celebrate an America that distorts the concept of freedom so as to give free reign to the most disordered and enslaving passions. I cannot applaud an attitude that installs immorality as the norm and has consequences everywhere. Thus, I cannot look on indifferently as this twisted abuse of freedom leads to the killing of the unborn, the destruction of countless families, and the shattering of so many communities. It is only logical that I oppose this attitude since it is leading to the self-destruction of the nation I love.

Finally, I cannot celebrate an America in which a deformed concept of freedom has come to mean a denial of reality itself. Political correctness rules over us with oppression and cruelty. People now self-identify as that which they are not and force all of society to conform to them. Such abuses lead to a dangerous regime that threatens to make reality whatever people fancy it to be with official sanction from government or Supreme Court.

All of these Americas involve the abuse of freedom that impacts upon society as a whole. I cannot celebrate all these so-called freedoms because they soon become tyrannies. We have seen how those who cry out most against intolerance are also those who will not tolerate any opposition. They will not rest until they have triumphed over those who freely voice their objections. Indeed, we are already feeling this tyranny in cases in which people are forced to act against God’s law for failing to accept same-sex “marriage” or transgender bathrooms. The final goal of this America is a land of no restraints that punishes all dissent. Everything must be allowed, and all must not only accept but celebrate the fantasies of others. It is only prohibited to prohibit.

When Society is Corrupt, Is There a Solution?

The America I and countless others celebrate, is different. It is an America of ordered liberty. This America recognizes that freedom is only maintained when enslaving passions are restrained by strong moral principles. Thus, I celebrate those “Ten Commandment” Americans who still uphold a moral law that says objective right and wrong exist. They believe correctly that America will only be great if she is good.

For the America I celebrate, heroism is not an empty word. Thus I celebrate an America that sacrifices for values that are worth more than life itself.

I celebrate an America that grieves for the nation because we are going down the path to ruin. I further celebrate those Americans who act upon their grief and have the courage to say no to the politically correct commissars who artificially rule from their media seats of power. This America defends those institutions of family and faith that are so vehemently attacked.

I celebrate an America that sacrifices for values that are worth more than life itself. For this America, heroism is not an empty word. It respects, admires and applauds Americans who have served, shed their blood and offered their lives so that truth, good, and true freedom might prevail.

Finally, I celebrate an America that prays. It corresponds to those Americans who rise above the materialism of our day and turn to Heaven for aid. These recognize that natural solutions have failed and we must appeal to God if we are to survive.

In celebrating the America that represents these attitudes, I do not wish anyone harm. It is a principled stand devoid of all personal hatred or prejudices. It targets no one person but rather vigorously reaffirms those perennial values that never die and will ensure the survival of the nation.

I believe there is still much to celebrate in America today. We stand at a crucial fork in our history and the future will be decided by the answer to the question: Which America do you celebrate this July 4th?

    This was great, although I think I would call the abuse of freedom “license.”

    We can not change the country on our own. We need help from the Blessed Mother who in her apparition in FAtima asked for the Consecration of Russia, the five First Saturday devotion to her Immaculate Heart and praying of the Rosary which is most effective if prayed by the family. Let us all pray for the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary during this100th year anniversary of her apparition in Fatima.

    The USA that God-loving & God-fearing people celebrate is the USA that should be celebrated everyday not just on 4th July. The USA mentioned in the article is an ideal which embodies the right aspirations that ALL Americans need to abide to for the nation to be righteous with God.
    To celebrate the 4th July = patriotism.

    In order to save America and brings her back to God, the Bishops of the United States must be waken up. They must be notified, alarmed, called, pleaded, requested… by all means that “they need to do a publicly and solemnly consecration of USA to the IMMACULATE HEART” ASAP. By doing so, the Blessed Virgin Mary will protect USA from getting involved in WW 3 and stop her from the “culture of death” from within… SHE SAID “ONLY I CAN HELP YOU.” And She meant it.

    The world is deeply plunged into the pit of hell and nobody can help us but Our Mother. If the American-Bishops will do the consecration for us now, we might very well escape all the Chastisement that will fall upon our heads at any moment now. We need to call, write, in person… whatsoever we could to ask the Bishops to do their jobs… to protect the people from harm “physically and spiritually” and we are both being attacked physically and spiritually today more than ever before in the history of mankind.

    IF THE BISHOPS DO NOT DO THEIR JOBS, THEN WE TRULY ARE ORPHANAGES. EVEN IF WE ONLY CAN FIND 5 BISHOPS TO DO SO, THAT’S STILL BETTER THAN NO BISHOP. THE TFP and ANF NEED TO GET ONTO THIS PROJECT NOW. WE DON’T HAVE ANY TIME LEFT.

    The TFP and ANF need to write up petitions and ask all Catholics and even non-catholics to sign the petitions, to do the consecration of the USA now, as soon as possible, to exorcist the USA out of the hands of the devils and their sodomites’ plague.

    WE MUST PETITION ALL THE CATHOLIC BISHOPS TO DO THE CONSECRATION OF THE USA NOW TO STOP HER FROM SLAVERY FOR THE NWO’S WARS THAT THEY HAVE CREATED AND PUSHED US IN. THEY DID WW1, WW 2 AND NOW WW 3…

    NO. WE DON’T HAVE TO BE SLAVED FOR THE ANTICHRIST AND HIS NEW WORLD ORDER LUCIFERIAN SECT. TIME TO EXORCIST THEM OUT OF THE USA, BY CONSECRATE OUR NATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART. TIME TO CRUSH THE SERPENT’S HEAD TOGETHER WITH OUR BLESSED MOTHER. We have no way out but Our Lady. We need our Bishops to do the consecration of this nation now, now, before it’s too late. The WW 3 is going to happen at any moment and nobody will be survived, rest for sure on that. We must stop the evils before they annihilate the whole humanity.

      Our Lady is helping, but the only way out is through God.
