November 7, 2012Today Americans woke up to four more years of the Marxist in Chief in the White House with his Death Squad generals and official Race Baiters. The sun still rose in the East, the wind still blew, and a lot of people took off for work as usual.
I’ve thought a lot about what continuing this administration means for the common good, and where God is in all of this. As hard as many prayed, sacrificed, and fasted for the end of this regime, nobody should have thought that the war for our constitutional principles and precedence of the natural law would be easily won. The Pope’s Year of Faith is providential when you look at a few estimated statistics on this election: 90% of black people voted for Obama, 71% of Hispanics, 54% of women, and 40% of the elderly. Forty-two percent of the electorate is composed of people between ages 18-30. Twenty to twenty-five percent of the electorate have no religious affiliation and most vote Democrat.
Obama will be appointing at least two new Supreme Court Justices in this next term. They will be activist judges and will make the court more liberal than ever for the next thirty years. Gun control and other oppressive acts outside the Constitution will become a reality.
We are in desperate need of the New Evangelization. People need to see that the living God is the God of life but the majority in our country blindly and stubbornly chose death in this election. We couldn’t even take the Senate, a most important body that would have helped us thwart the loss of our liberties if a majority of God-fearing people had been elected.
Now is not the time, however, to cry in our beer. We must continue our prayer, fasting, and sacrifices. We must diligently educate ourselves in our Faith, continue to live the Gospel, and do what we can to educate others on our Constitution, the natural law, and moral obligations to others. We must be good Catholic witnesses wherever we are. We must prepare to be martyrs.
Meanwhile, God will not be mocked. We can be sure of that. What He will do and how He will do it remains to be seen, but we can be sure that it won’t be pretty for a country that continues to kill babies in the womb, the disabled, and the elderly. In this Year of Faith we must go out of our way to arm ourselves with truth and the sword of the Spirit. We must never give in to bullies who want to squelch our God-given rights to freedom of conscience and religion and our lives.
I look for a great outpouring of God’s grace on His followers in these coming years. He will not leave us to hell if we fix our eyes on the banner of the Cross. But none of us is going to avoid the coming chastisement of this world.
