Sorrow

I love my country, really I do. But there are times when I am ashamed of her. Like for this: in the 1940's, US officials infected about 1,500 of men in Guatemala with STD's to do experiment. They allowed prostitutes carrying syphilis and gonorrhea to visit them and infect them. After penicillin was discovered as a cure, these men were not given the drug. Rather, the US gave them free meals...and free prostitutes. Shame. Just imagine a world where human dignity was respected all the time. Oh, Jesus, Have Mercy on us!!!

H L Mencken said, "Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under." This is just one of legions of examples.

Pick up a traditional missal and read the prayer for the United States. You will wish it were prayed more often.
