Be Countercultural--Obey the Church!

Emily Stimpson over at CatholicVote.org has this terrific post that provides Catholics who are faithful to the Magisterium with a response to those who accuse us of being unthinking idiots for not being enlightened enough to question church teachings:

The easy thing to do for anyone in any age is to drift with the culture. The hard thing to do is to swim against the tide. As this is not 1950, the easy thing for most of us to do would be to pop a pill, sleep around, and marry and divorce as often as we like. Those of us who aren’t doing that are making hard choices, choices that fly in the face of what the media, our neighbors, and, oftentimes, our families tell us to do. And you don’t make those kinds of choices without first having a long, hard think about them.
Here's the full post.
