(www.RemnantNewspaper.com) Tough to swallow, isn’t it! But did we really think we could somehow vote our way out of this—with homosexual "marriage" having become the law of the land and the slain bodies of millions of aborted babies clogging the sewers of American cities and consciences? All that was needed for us to be redeemed was another election? Please! Ideas have consequences—and so do the crime of infanticide and the other sins that cry to heaven for vengeance.
Barack Obama is not the problem, by the way. We are! Abortion is. Public schools are. A rotting pop culture is. Modernism in the Catholic Church is. Divorce and homosexual "marriage" are. Obama has been reelected because America, like any nation, will always get the leaders she richly deserves. We told God to go to hell a long time ago, and God is merely allowing us to see what life is like without Him. So lead on, Mr. Obama! Thou shouldst not have any power against us, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered us to thee, hath the greater sin.
We are Christians, and our help is in the name of the Lord—not electoral politics. So, let's keep this all in perspective. Out of sheer desperation, most of us threw our hats in the ring for a Mormon, big government, sometimes pro-life, moderately pro-gay rights candidate who is conservative by comparison only. Even by John F. Kennedy's standards, Mitt Romney, though no doubt well meaning, is a rabid liberal.
In other words, the GOP bet the pot on a moderate conservative, again...and lost big, again. They took our votes for granted, again, by downplaying the rather embarrassing social issues in favor of the ever-sophisticated pocketbook issues. Once again, it didn’t pay off, so perhaps they will have learned their lesson the next time around...if, in fact, there is a next time after the insufferable McCain and Mormon Romney fiascoes.
But there is a silver lining in all of this for those willing to see it. Folks in the real world are obviously fed up with the charade and will finally be absolutely united against an evil that would have remained entrenched inside the Beltway no matter who won this election. Conservative Catholics, traditional Catholics, pro-family Protestants, pro-lifers, pro-homeschooling advocates will all be solidly united against the White House for the next four years—and this is always a good thing.
America's slide into total hedonism may well have been checked with the 53 percent having now come to realize the full extent of our national illness. This election has made it abundantly obvious to millions that vast numbers of their compatriots have simply lost any semblance of their God-given sense of moral equilibrium--a sobering fact that will force those who still have a moral pulse to realize they're standing in knee-deep water that is rapidly rising and that it's time for them to seek higher ground. In other words, the party is finally over.
This is a golden opportunity for us, then—not to accuse Obama for being a closet Muslim or whatever else—but rather to encourage Americans to come out of their respective closets and to become Christian again. The human element of the Catholic Church has an eleventh-hour opportunity to abandon the failed policies of Modernism that have plagued the Church for too long, before the Church in America will be crushed beneath the heels of militant atheists. Moderate, jovial, doctrine-less bishops lost big tonight. Cardinal Dolan, Governor Chris Christie—what’s the difference! Who cares! We've had enough!
An awakening took place tonight, and it means that faithful, traditionalist, God-fearing Americans can finally begin to move towards authentic restoration of everything that matters in this life—that which Americans once held sacred, good, honorable and noble because it is based on love of God, His law, Christian culture, tradition and the family
After all, it's not as if all things were exactly rosy back in the winning days of the GOP. Who could forget the Stalin-esque Patriot Act, for example. Or Donald Rumsfeld’s infamous salivating over “shock and awe” in Baghdad. Or how about that precedent-setting moment when "conservative" Secretary of State Condi Rice swore in homosexual Mark Dybul as President Bush’s Global AIDS Coordinator, while First Lady Laura Bush looked on approvingly, along with Dybul’s gay partner, Jason? And then there were those pro-abortion First Ladies, you remember them—Nancy, Barbara and Laura. And Congressman Mark Foley and his pages, remember that “conservative”? By the way, was GOP “conservative” Arnold Schwarzenegger "one of ours" when he was conducting homosexual marriages inside the governor’s mansion in California?
I’ll never forget the pain of division between family members and other pro-lifers who sincerely believed we were all obligated before God to go along with every dingbat initiative out of the White House must because our president said he was "prolife" and doing God’s holy work.
Again, let us not lose perspective. In many ways, Mitt Romney would have taken us back to the good old days, which, let’s face it, weren’t all that.
Yes, tonight the champions of outright atheism, abortion, and the destruction of the family narrowly won reelection; but they didn't win a mandate and they will certainly be met with resistance. Millions of us, in fact, will unite against their Godless agenda, promising gigantic gridlock which may well prove to be the last, best hope for America.
So, did we have a horse in this race? I don’t know...probably not. I think most of us were just making the best of a desperate situation by buying some time and praying America would wake up in the meantime. But if waking America from her half-century slumber was the objective, perhaps that mission was accomplished when Ohio was declared for Barak Obama.
For the next four years at least, millions of Americans will stand fast against the Godless polices of Washington, D.C.—policies which, again, let’s face it, on the issues that matter most to the soul of our country would have changed only minimally had the well-meaning Mormon been victorious.
So, to recap: We lost a race in which we really didn’t have a pony. But, as a result of that defeat, millions of Americans have had their blinders removed and now know exactly where they stand. They have, it would seem, woken up at last.
Obama represents our chastisement, perhaps, but not our conqueror. His victory may well lead to our redemption, in fact, both as Catholics and as Americans. Four more years of Obama may mean that America will have to suffer, but perhaps she will also begin to find her soul again… and her knees. Then Americans will actually have a chance to be truly free, after all.
God writes straight with crooked lines, and if America is to be humbled and brought to her knees, perhaps she will be redeemed in the process. For this we hope and pray, even as we vow to fight against the reelected regime and to never surrender the old Faith of our Fathers—come what may.
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Rev. 18:4
