The two most noble professions the young man may choose for his future are the religious order, and the military order. Both involve great sacrifice for a worthy cause. The ordained cleric or vowed religious sacrifices marriage, children, personal wealth and independence, in total commitment to service of the Lord and His Church. That's a lot to give up. The professional warrior leaves home and hearth behind to potentially sacrifice his very life, and his limbs, his physical and mental well-being, for a greater cause. So, what is this greater cause, that might move a man to kill, or to be killed, and even to make a profession of it?
In other lands, it might be to serve a Prince, or a land, or a people, or a revolutionary, or a god. Not so, in America. The American warrior swears his oath of allegiance to the American Constitution. A document. An idea.
I submit that it is well worth your time to plumb the depths of that idea.
Currently, the American Constitution itself is not only not being followed, and not only being regularly violated by the sitting government, but it is in clear and present danger of being permanently eliminated by domestic enemies. Crisis after crisis is either strategically created or tactically commandeered for the benefit of the growth of government power over the people.
We see that the Obamunist-controlled CDC, in strict obedience to the Politically-Correct New Racism, fiercely opposes the use of medical quarantine as a preventative medical precaution for black populations in Africa, and only uses it for white populations here in America. There is and will be no quarantine restrictions on travel between infected African countries and America, or Mexico, or Central or South America, nor will the American border be sealed.
Why might that be?
What better excuse could a devious revolutionary President have to suspend an election than a newly exploding national epidemic of ebola?
What better excuse could a devious revolutionary President have to declare Martial Law than any massive violation of a national quarantine order?
If the Constitution itself is ever suspended for any declared "National Emergency" situation, how, exactly, might it ever re-institute itself?
Just something to think about.
We have finished converting the Necessity of War pages from the old Thinking-Catholic-Strategic-Center.com website name to the new CatholicAmericanThinker.com website name. If you haven't read them yet, look at them and see what you think. It is our take on the necessary evil of war.
Also completed are the Socialized Medicine pages, the Unionism pages, the Criminal Alien pages, the Winnowing pages and the Smart Assed Hover-Link pages, since the last time we posted about the conversion process.
The conversion process marches on.
Hover-Link Footnotes: For the convenience of those readers using devices that lack a mouse, these footnotes are provided for all webpages, in case any webpage contains any hover-links. (If you don't have a mouse, you can't "hover" the mouse over a link, without clicking, to just to see the related Acronym appear.)

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
These are the pages that explore the dichotomy between what Benjamin Franklin called "our American religion," which is General Christianity, and waging war.
Necessity of War pages
Whether man wants war or not, it is best to be prepared for war so long as evil exists, and evil will exist until Christ comes again. Even Heaven itself was not free of war.
Unavoidable existence of evil and the periodic Necessary War. So long as evil exists, necessary war will be fought, lest the Church and "Good" be extinguished on earth.
The Necessity of War: Is there such a thing? Do we ever need war? The Thinking Catholic looks at the seemingly perpetual argument over the very Necessity of War.
America's Limited War Doctrine: A Fatal Flaw. Since Korea, top-level American war strategy has been terribly flawed. (Note well that the Korean "war" is not even over with, and we are still there, at this late date.)
The Bush War Doctrine Revisited: a fresh look at our horrible situation. A reproduction of the "Bush War Doctrine Revisited" article and discussion points by David Yerushalmi; there is much food for thought here.
For God and Country – More Thoughts on America, and on National Existence. For God and Country: Comparisons of martyrdom and heroism, Sovereign Nationhood Vs. Internationalism, distinct people-hood Vs. the Global Village, and Godliness Vs. godlessness.
How Cronkite and the SLIMC lost the Vietnam War for America. With the whole SLIMC overwhelmingly Marxist, the Reds couldn't possibly loose politically and publicly that which they couldn't posssibly win militarily in the Vietnam war.
The End Game; Marxism & Islam join hands beneath the smoke of world chaos. This could be the end game, it could be the beginning of World War Three, or, just another global depression.
World Revolution returns with a vengeance: the rebirth of Marxism. Marxist world revolution returns, and faces far less opposition than in 1848 or the period between the Great Wars.
Again, it's Israel up against what appears to be the whole pea-picking world. Weak lip-service and pretty speeches aside, America is Israel's only real ally. And, as war is imposed upon her again, even many Americans are lukewarm in their support. Why?
The latest Israeli conflict is little different from all the previous ones. The first Israeli conflict with her neighbors, and every one since then, has been a simple matter of self defense.
From 1768 through 1776 the Brits vainly attempted gun control in the Colonies. The British feared that, absent "gun control", the militias in the colonies could become as "regulated" and fearsome as the British "Regulars" themselves.
American Military Assault Weapons originally intended in the 2nd Amendment. To miss the point of the 2nd Amendment is to miss the point of the whole Constitution.
CCW Entrapment discusses the legal dangers of legal carrying. George Zimmerman is a victim of CCW Entrapment and Sponsored Racial Polarization.
Thoughts in remembrance of 09/11/2001, five years later. The changing shape of the war, the changing shape of the enemy.
