Fr. Bill returns to his podcast to talk about Christmas not only as a secular observance, but one in which even atheists give a nod to the birth of Jesus just by virtue of celebrating Christmas (however they do it). Christmas is also a national reminder of our “First Freedom” as Americans — which is not the Freedom of Speech (at best, that is the Second Freedom).
Freedom of Speech
THE RESURRECTION & OUR 1ST FREEDOM
The Apostles and the Great Catch of Fish
Homily – 3rd Sunday of Easter – C
Acts of the Apostles 5:27-32, 40b-41
Fr. Bill preaches on the Miracle of the Great Catch of Fish, and how the story, in its entirety, can be applied to the Mission of the Church today and the Constitutional Rights guaranteed to Americans in the United States Bill of Rights.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS NOT OUR FIRST FREEDOM!!
There is a freedom that is more important than the Freedom of Speech (and the U.S. Constitution agrees)
With the news regarding the sale of Twitter, there has been much discussion on the nature of the Freedom of Speech in the United States. Fr. Bill discusses the importance of Free Speech, but also talks about another Freedom, in the Bill of Rights, more important than Free Speech, without which we will never enjoy freedom and Democratic Dominance over our Governmental Systems.
