Two Roman Catholic priests in the United States have ignited a controversy not only within their own church, but on the worldwide stage as well. Father Robert Altier (Crystal, Minnesota) and Reverend James Altman (La Crosse, Wisconsin) each expressed views to their congregations that contradicted the official Left narrative on two of the most sensitive issues to the Left: continuation of the COVID-19 lockdowns and the coming presidential election.
Altier’s sin was to proclaim that “we have been lied to” about the COVID-19 shutdowns, while Altman’s sin was to suggest that one can not be Catholic and also vote for the Democratic Party.
The controversy puts a spotlight on the unjust way Christian groups in particular have been targeted and prevented from free assembly, while public assemblies by groups on the Left are openly supported, aided and abetted. It has also exposed a philosophical conflict within the religious community that parallels that of the broader general community. Each faces its own polarized environment pitting Left against Right.
Perhaps consequently, and on a positive note, both the secular and religious Right are discovering that they have more politically in common than not. At the root of their commonality is the philosophy of freedom, a value shared by those who acknowledge that every individual has a free will and the right to exercise it.
The sooner they begin working together politically the better. Because in the end the only forces that can stop this fascist political pandemic are those that are Just Right.
