Truly Revolutionary

I originally posted this back in May. I thought I would post it today in response to some blogs I read over the weekend on defending marriage. I thought the quote would be truly fitting for the situation - we are revolutionaries! Let's get the information out and start a revolution.

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act

- George Orwell

This quote (that I saw in an English class on Tuesday) has spoken to me a lot this week. I feel like I am part of two revolutionary groups when really the ideas that they support are not new. I came across a website called "Catholics for Choice" the same day I saw the quote. It is a website that claims since the majority of Catholics support birth control (among other things) our religious belief should change to reflect that. I wish more people took the time to look at or, better yet, were told the beautiful message of the Church on marriage and love. In any case, just because most people don't like it - doesn't mean the truth changes. That logic is easy to follow when we talk about things that have been proved incorrect. Everyone now knows that the earth is not the center of the universe and never was (even when the majority of people believed it to be true). Same goes with religion - either it is true or it is not true. It can't stop being true because public opinion has changed.
