I heard on EWTN that during times of persecution of our faith that the key to changing it was through the culture not politics....makes a lot of sense. He gave the example of shakespeare who did not run for office or start a political party during the Elizabethan age when Catholics were being killed but instead, he wrote plays. If you think about it, this makes a lot of sense. Who owns the culture now except the unreligious liberals? And their values have been spreading everywhere since they started "owning" it.
I think liberals do own the culture, and conservatives have been largely relegated to a subculture. I use Facebook to keep in touch with distant relatives and friends scattered to the four winds, including former coworkers (I'm retired of course). Some of the latter are not just liberals but flaming liberals. They changed their picture to the pink 'equal' symbol signifying solidarity with the gay 'marriage' movement. The stuff they post is insufferably obnoxious. The reason I don't 'unfriend' them is because I enjoy spirited debate (as you may have noted here on CM). Liberal posts get many supportive comments, while conservative posts are attacked as 'hate speech'- when I respond with my 'hateful' Christian opinions, I'm called names I can't repeat here! While there is certainly plenty of genuine hate speech out there, the term has been used to silence opposition. Catholic teaching on marriage for example has been called 'hate speech.' We have to keep up the good fight!
I have friends who debate on Facebook and such all of the time. I agree that we have to keep up the good fight. I think the media and the pop culture are trying to dominate and shape our culture... I agree that some from the education realm are trying as well.. good for you for fighting and keep it up!
