“The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over”


Last week, Princeton University Professor Robert George spoke at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast. My good friend Bill Saunders introduces Professor George.

Excerpts from his remarks:

During his presentation, Professor George spoke about the reality of the persecution of pro-life and pro-family conservatives. He said, “The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over, the days of comfortable Catholicism are past. It is no longer easy to be a faithful Christian, a good Catholic, an authentic witness to the truths of the Gospel.”
Professor George concluded by saying, “We can no longer be comfortable. It is for us a time of trial, a time of testing by adversity…. We will experience fear, just as the apostles did—that is inevitable…. By the grace of Almighty God, Easter is indeed coming. Do not be ashamed of the Gospel. Never be ashamed of the Gospel.”
