People love to say that religion and politics don’t mix. Well to date I have been given a rather harsh reality check. As my vision fails and I am forced to entertain getting on public assistance, I am seeing some validation to the liberal’s arguments and I must admit when I am wrong.
My stand against public assistance came from my personal need to reject any assistance from an entity who turns people’s back against God. But much of my opinion came from people who have been forced to pay others to be lazy when they are working their fingers to the bone. But out here on the frontier the people who need help, need it not because we are lazy but rather because we have no other choice.
But a one-sided relationship also known as a charitable relationship could be extremely destructive. Co-dependency tends to harbor resentment from those who are dependent and those who are providing. My Ex-wife, Kansa and I had a co-dependant relationship. Through most of our marriage I was working to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. She was on public assistance when we got married and she lost it shortly after she got married, because I made too much money. I got sick and she had to go to work. I as soon as I got well and she checked into the hospital and filed for divorce. She was told that as long as she is married she will not qualify for assistance; just to get back under the umbrella of public assistance. It seems to me that the government hates the religious institution of marriage because it helps people break from underneath the thumb of our oppression.
Religion in general teaches people to be self-sufficient and when the largest employer in America happens to be the Welfare system, there should be no questions about why the government needs you on welfare. Just think about how many people would be unemployed if we did away with it.
Anarchy Empowered promotes true charity that comes from the heart and offers ways the help the person in need to become more self-sufficient. We believe that education and motivation are the key for a healthy and productive future.
Many of the mental illnesses that keep the Welfare system strong could be removed forever if we as a nation would stop promoting them. Every time Jesus preformed a miracle he called on the person receiving help to do something on his or her part first. If the cripple did not try to stand, he would have never known he could walk.
Our government hates religion because it gives a sense of empowerment to oppressed. Meanwhile I still feel safer walking down the street with a white cane and not because I can’t get around but because it helps drives understand that I may not realize that I am in an intersection.
My name is Anthony Antolic. I founder Antolic Enterprises to help others realize that what the world calls a disabled American is simply a labeled person who may choose to live life feeling sorry for his or her self or learn to get passed the limitations that the world puts on us.
I am Anthony Antolic. I am blind as the world labels me, but I am not defined by my cane. I am a son of God. An earthly son of my father and mother. I am an uncle and a brother. I have a loving wife and a passion for inspiring others. I am also proud to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints and reject the will never of Man’s political nature: for “The natural man is an Enemy to God and should be put off” (Mosiah, 2:9).
Government opposes religion as a whole because sin is big money. Look at how much money and influence Vagas has on our economic landscape. Drugs, Alcohol and prostitution feed the carnel nature of our natural man, so what does our government do? They make it legal and put sin taxes on the products. Marriage and strong families are grounded upon by the elect because strong families have kids who are less likely to become welfare dependant.
