Now hear this! Unless the citizens of a democracy are honest and upright, that democracy is finished. One of the people who realized this was John Paul II, who tried to put it gently in Certesimus Annus (in Latin for the whole world): “freedom must be tethered to truth and ordered to goodness if freedom is not to become its own undoing.”
If you want to live in a democracy, you can’t riot and loot, or it won’t be a democracy much longer. I’m telling you that as a brother. Don’t turn me off as a bigot. Facts are facts. God showed us the way in 1790. Don’t turn him off or down.
