how ironic...my parish priest left my house literally 30 minutes ago as we had him over for an Independence Day barbacue...nice guy- Naval Academy grad, spent nine years in the Navy, most as a naval aviator before entering the priesthood...

he summed up his years in the Navy (77-85) in the following; “Carter was a nightmare- once Reagan got into office you could sense a different attitude”...

we spoke about the upcoming election, I should say I spoke about it and he listened...I said for any Catholic or Christian the choice is simple- even if abortion is not a major voting issue you CANNOT vote for hussien obama with his live birth and partial birth abortion history, with his desire for federally funded abortions, with his desire for “reproductive justice” will will be determined and handed out by a single person, in good conscience....

he simply said, “I agree”....

He should write a memoir someday. I'll bet it would be enlightening.

I hear you.

I have become pretty close to my parish priest and I think he feels comfortable enough to chat with me informally on politics.

He liked Dunkin Hunter and Mike Huckabee.

He is a bit disappointed in the choices we have but given the choices, he knows which one is the greater evil.
