I am somewhat discouraged and depressed today and I am not entirely sure why. I think part of it is that I was disappointed at not being able to go to a Communion Service and receive Jesus in the Eucharist this morning before my dentist appointment. The church that used to have Communion Services which is similar to a Mass but only has the Liturgy of the Word and distribution of the Eucharist no longer has these services. I was disappointed at that.

Another thing that is bothering me is the fact that a judge ranted against Indiana and Wisconsin trying to uphold the bans on "gay marriage". If "gay marriage" is legalized here in Indiana then I promise you I will be weeping. I am near weeping just at thought of it. I hate the fact that our nation endorses grave immorality such as "gay marriage" and abortion.

I am also dismayed by the fact that California is trying force Catholic universities to provide insurance coverage for abortion. That is absolutely sickening and is a clear violation of their religious freedom. I am sure that they will fight it in the courts and I hope and pray that they will win in the courts.

That said, our religious freedom is under continual attack. The Obama administration came up with another thing for the HHS Mandate but this one is just as bad. The USCCB has said that it is still an attack on our religious freedom. As always, I stand with them. I will not tolerate our religious freedom being attacked. I will do all in my power to peacefully protest these violations of our religious freedom and these journal posts are one way that I do that. I have also changed my Facebook cover photo and my profile picture to one that says "An Unjust Law is No Law" or something similar. I can't remember if that's the exact phrasing or not. But nevertheless, you get the picture.

I went to the dentist this morning and had 10 cavities drilled and filled. I was shocked that I had so many cavities. The dentist did say that they were small though so that was slightly consoling. I have to go back to the dentist tomorrow to get my teeth cleaned.

I was wanting to go to Mass or receive Jesus in the Eucharist every day this week but there is no way that I am going to be able to do that. I do not have enough gas to do so this week and I don't have enough money to get more gas.

Well, I can't really think of anything else that I'd like to journal about today. However, I would ask that everyone please keep me in your prayers. I hate it when I am discouraged like this.

Did you know that here in the United States, our religious liberty, also known as religious freedom, is under attack? It's true. Photographers, baker, florists, and now even a farmer have faced lawsuits for refusing to provide services for "same-sex weddings" because their sincerely held religious beliefs forbid them to do so. Also, the HHS Mandate which was addressed this past Summer by the Supreme Court is still a threat to religious liberty everywhere in the United States. Even the USCCB agrees as demonstrated by this recent article: http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/bishops-religious-groups-concerned-over-latest-hhs-mandate-rule-change/

But these instances are not the only examples of religious liberty being attacked. Bibles have been thrown out of a military guest house because the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a radical secularist organization, complained. There has even been an instance of a child being suspended from school simply for saying "Bless you." Some say that she yelled it in a disruptive manner. I have no idea whether that is true or not but I still don't think that is justification for suspension. If she was truly being disruptive in class then an hour in detention would have been sufficient punishment. But the fact is that the teacher had a white board or something which even listed saying "Bless you" as being banned. This teacher had made it well known that she would not tolerate any religious speech whatsoever in her class, even if it was something as simple and non-sectarian as saying "Bless you" when someone sneezes.

There have been a lot of other examples of our religious freedom being attacked in the past few years but I do not wish to go through and list them all. You can do the research for yourself. But the fact is that our religious freedom is under attack here in the United States. In fact, it's under attack throughout the world. We, as Americans, must stand up to protect our religious liberty. We cannot let secularists and others take it away from us. We must contact our legislators and other people in government offices and demand that they protect our religious liberty. If we do not, things could become very bad within our own lifetimes.

I am so irritated right now.


I am so irritated right now. I had an argument with a person whom I am no longer friends with. I don't want to go into it because I am not going to gossip.

I have spent most of the night and today fixing my computer only to have yet another issue with it. Windows Automatic Update would not stay on so I formatted the computer and reinstalled Windows with Recovery Manager. Now I am getting some sort of error which seems like it's impossible to fix. Windows Update can't even check for updates now. Thankfully I already have most of the updates. I am going to post on a tech forum to get some help with this issue. It's really irritating me.
