Thank you

Thank you to all the men and women who looked Nazi's straight in the eye and lied about the Jews or the Allied soldiers hidden in the barn.....

Thank you to all the reporters who pretended to be tourists and returned home to tell  the true story of what was going on in the Congo, Armenia, Russia...ect.

Thank you to the peasants who snuck food into the prisoners held by the Moors.....

Thank you to all the good women in Russia, Spain and  Mexico who hid priests......

Thank you to the woman who hid the Valencia chalice in her coat and walked right past the evil men who wished to despoil the Valencia cathedral and take the chalice as a trophy....

Thank you earnest Quaker ladies who made your homes hiding places for the Underground Railroad.....

Thank you recusant Catholics who risked your own lives to keep the Faith alive in England.....

Thank you, to all those did and dared for the sake of good  while lesser people sat at home fat and happy and critical.

Well said! Have you seen Peter Kreeft's statement supporting Lila Rose and Live Action? Good for him!

Amen.

(And since I'm married to one: thank you to all the undercover cops who catch online child molesters, drug dealers, and other assorted bad guys.)

John Zmirak also wrote a great article about this titled "Cancel My Mental Reservations".

You know, I can't figure ot these people who are soooo upset about what Lila Rose did. She was not lying for selfish gain, she was, like some of the examples cited in this post, lying to stop mass murder. People like Mark Shea are gnat straining, camel swallowing Pharisees. Shea bellyaches about supporters of the death penalty as "death penalty maxiumists", yet he condemns Lila for her sting operations to expose ans shut down the biggest "death penalty maxiumist" organization in the USA! what hypocracy!

Of course, unless they follow a suspect too many years without having anything real against him, and so ruin his life.

That's what I THINK French police have been doing, but I don't know, they are not extra communicative.
