When Ravens Bring News From The South

“Most of us are not so strong. What is honour compared to a woman’s love? And what is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms? Or a brother’s smile?”… “We’re all human. Oh, we all do our duty when there’s no cost to it. Honour comes easy then. Yet sooner or later, in every man’s life, there comes a day when it is not easy. A day when he must choose.”
– Master Aemon, Game of Thrones

“Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for?
– William J. Bennett

I accidentally pre-posted this the other day. Anyone who saw it probably thought it didn’t make much sense. They may still think so after its completion.

This is not about stopping illegal immigrants who have passed through the Isthmus of Panama, or Isis operatives down on the border. Or putting together a plan to survive our current Presidents efforts to turn this country into the greatest third-world-has-been-Super-Power.  Or being prepared to defend the homeland against the inevitable terrorist attack, false flag event, or some other nationalistic flag waiving attempt to “retake” the homeland.

It’s about what the church will do when (not if) it is cut out of the herd, betrayed, made enemies of the state, and denied her Constitutional right to freely exercise her religion, and freedom of speech.

Will she pale, bow the knee and deny her Lord?

Will we pale, and tremble, and bow the knee?

Or will we stand.
