Happy Independence Day from the National Association of American Lay Catholics

Happy July 4th on this 236th Anniversary of our Independence as a sovereign nation.

On this day, July 4, 2012 I thought it fitting to announce the new official name of this organization, the National Association of American Lay Catholics.

There is much work ahead for us Catholics today just as there was for our new nation after it declared its independence.  Today, we declare independence from unjust laws that violate our religious freedom.  Please join in defending against the persecutions directed at the Church and the United States.

The following photos are included here from the U.S. Capitol rotunda in honor of this day:

O Holy Spirit, strengthen us to defend all that is holy.

Now Occupy Wall Street shows denigrating photos of Pope Benedict XVI on its Facebook page!

Now Occupy Wall Street has gotten into the act like Occupy DC by posting denigrating photos of Pope Benedict XVI on its Facebook page.  The first photo depicts Pope Benedict as part of the 1%.  Click HERE.

The second photo shows a doctored image of the Pope and an imam kissing.  Click HERE.

Additionally, Occupy Faith NYC who has the support of some Catholics and Christians of other denominations shows support for Occupy Wall Street.  Click HERE.

Do these Catholics who support the Occupy movements know who they are supposedly standing in solidarity with?  Some surely do.  Some do not.

How long will these photos stay up?  How long will some Catholics still support Occupy?

Thank you everyone for responding so strongly to this attack on our Savior.

Here’s to having a Happier Thanksgiving!
