I'm disappointed in the Catholic vote. I'm saddened to think that there are so many Catholics who voted for someone who is the biggest pro-abortion candidate. EVER. This even after so many bishops stated that it's a grave sin to do so because abortion is intrinsically evil. There's no way around that.
Another thing that bothers me. The end never justifies the means to me. Too many people voted for our new president because of his race. To do was not called racist but to vote for McCain because he is white would have been called so. To me there's no difference. Voting for our president elect just to have an African American as president despite what his beliefs are is plain wrong. Race shouldn't have been an issue for the African American community. Values and ideals should've been. Don't tell me that race wasn't an issue. It was. Check out the Harlem videos of people who had no idea what the issues were. Oh, and I'm not a racist. I've been on the receiving end of discrimination and racism. I know what it feels like and I don't discriminate. EVER.
One more thing. In California, they passed a measure that would require egg-laying chickens have bigger cages. What a great country we live in that the chickens are given more room but the unborn are sacrificed.
ETA: I feel robbed too because I can't celebrate the first election of an African American to the highest office of this country.
This morning when Sister woke up, I told her who had won. Her response? "Impossible." She could not understand why people would choose the culture of death over life. I couldn't even begin to explain to her that people were choosing to sacrifice the life of the unborn for economic policy.
Never before in the history of America have the nation's citizens selected as their leader a man so steeped in the support of evil as Barack Obama. Never before has America so sullenly turned her back on God and on His laws as she did this day; never before has America so unquestioningly played the harlot to the new false gods of modernity and relativism. Never before have Americans so blindly chanted slogans while secretly lusting after their neighbor's goods; never before have Americans been so naked in their covetousness, their demand that the federal government feed them and clothe them and wipe their snotty noses in times of illness--all to be paid for by the open theft of the honest incomes of other men, who now have no incentive to work hard and strive for success, since that success will be stolen from them and used to line the public coffers.
Read the rest of what she says. I did my part to try to stop this. Did you?
I'm not a very political person. Even Ben has commented on how much I've been reading and talking about this election. This election has scared me. A lot. I worry what's going to happen if Obama's elected. The right to life issue is a big one but there are many more out there. Read the list. Please.
I've often wondered what has happened to the reporting of facts. Instead we get a skewed version of the facts and surely not the whole story. Here's a great op-ed piece by a Democart, no less, taking journalists to task. He's in the know as he is also a newspaper columnist.
