Democracy is Like Marriage

This is a syndicated post from On This Rock. [Read the original article...]

Pope’s Saint John Paul II and Benedict XVI both talked extensively about democracy and capitalism.  To sum it up briefly – democracy seems to be our best form of government, but just because you have a republic or a democracy, that does NOT mean that things are going to work out.
A DEMOCRACY TAKES VIGILANCE…DAILY…ALL THE TIME
The Truth will not prevail automatically

First principles can be rejected and new ones enshrined and democracy can become totalitarian very quickly.
What are you doing to help shape our democratic system?
