A New Dawn For Catholics In America

By REY FLORES

It’s hard to put into words what many of us may feel after election night. I am as stunned as many of you are, but I guess all of this shouldn’t surprise us. Ultimately, it was never Mitt Romney, nor Paul Ryan, who was going to save us. Of course, the only one that can save our nation isour Lord Jesus Christ. He and our Blessed Mother Mary are the ones that can carry us through the coming persecution of our faith.

We must get used to the idea that this nation, like many fallen empires before it, is collapsing before our very eyes. The idyllic America that we onceknew is no more. The election and now re-election of President Barack Obama was something that God foresaw long ago.

Barack Obama and the rest of the politicians that subscribe to his humanist philosophies were all put here to test our mettle. They were brought to us so we could show where we truly stand.

We now wake up to a new America where the people in Maine, Maryland, and Washington state have voted to approve the redefinition of marriage. Minnesota rejected a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. We face an even steeper hill now to defend all that is good, all that is right, and all that is God’s will.

“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

It has been reported that these are the words of Obama’s righthand woman, Valerie Jarrett. It is alleged that she said all this during an impromptu speech to three senior staffers running Obama’s re-election campaign in Chicago. There are reliable sources who have confirmed that these are in fact Jarrett’s words; we now know in no uncertain terms where this administration stands.

If it is payback time, as Jarrett says, all I can say is: Bring it on. We will not be intimidated by this woman, or her boss Barack Obama, who two days before the election told supporters at a rally to vote for revenge.

We know how the story ends and with that confidence we will persevere. Jesus our Lord did not shed His Most Precious Blood for us to wilt and back down. Our Lord expects us to stand for His truth and through the Holy Sacrifice of the Masses said throughout the world every day, we will continue to receive the graces and strength to defeat whatever the enemy throws our way.

Here we go with those who will conflate “social justice” issues with life issues as being of the same value. This kind of “seamless garment” argument does nothing but confuse the faithful and creates confusion; and Satan loves the faithful to be lost in confusion.

Joe Biden Claims to be a Common Sense Catholic: so where is the sense?

Official portrait of Vice President of the Uni...

Biden’s Catholicism is an “abortion” of orthodoxy (excuse the pun). I would like to start by making some observations that seem to me to be common sense rather than political or theological. Though common sense has become scarce in our day as Jess on All Around the Watchtower reminded me; she quipped that we should probably start calling it uncommon sense.

1st: I think that we would all agree that murder is wrong. Good.

2nd: If a political candidate advocated killing some of its citizens (not to mention the 60 million already murdered), few would support them – though there is always a small minority that would let nothing stand in the way of their agenda or ideology. You with me so far?

3rd: In order to be able to pass a law that would allow its citizenry to be killed, we would necessarily have to make sure that it is not classified as murder. Does this make sense?

4th: To classify a baby in the womb as a non-living form is absolutely necessary in order to justify a government getting involved with the issue. It is what they want us to believe, is it not?

5th: Who then should we trust with the expertise to examine this issue and proclaim when life begins? The mother, the government, science, philosophy or theology? Who is best qualified?

6th: Most who hold pro-abortion views have accepted the input of those in government, science and philosophy to declare that the fetus of a growing child is not yet a human being. Yet it is strange that people have been sentenced to jail for murder if they killed the infant in a mother’s womb without her consent. Strange that? Sounds like the mother gets to play God if she wants.

7th: Being a moral issue, would it not make sense that this should be decided by moral theologians within the church? Who else can make the call? Why should I believe any of them if they have no moral footing?

Therefore, when the Church, in my case Catholic, says that abortion is an intrinsic evil and that it is the murder of a child, then I can not for any circumstance stand with those who would willfully supply or allow for the killing of these citizens no matter what their party affiliation or ideology is.

Then there are those who say that one needs to look at all the social justice issues before deciding on whom to vote. Well then, you are saying that in simple math, the following are equal:

Government Care for the “Poor”* = Murder of 60 million children since 1978

* You may substitute whatever floats your boat for the word “poor” in the above equation. You may even add them all together and it will still not equal the life of 1 innocent child who is murdered in his or her mother’s womb.

Now, can Joe Biden in all seriousness, say that he agrees with the Church in his personal life but does not want to force his opinion on anyone else? If he truly believed it was the murder of a child, he would die for the cause and he could never work for or support a politician or a constituency that advocated the killing of children. So what is it Joe? Are these babies that are being killed or just a clump of cells? What do you really believe in Joe?
