I stayed up as late as I could - as late as I had to - to confirm what I had suspected for some time - President Barack Obama was reelected to another four year term of office.
I slept surprisingly well. Not because I am not worried about the future of Nation and the freedom of the Church under the coming second Obama term. I am deeply worried. But because I knew I had done everything that I could to ensure a different result and that the future is in the hands of a loving God.
...There are serious consequences which will follow this election result. It requires a serious response.
The Obama administration is hostile to our first neighbor, the child in the womb. They fail to hear the cry of those whom Blessed Teresa rightly called the "poorest of the poor" - while purporting to be a friend of the poor...
This administration refuses to defend true marriage - and the family and society founded upon it. It seems "hell bent" on doing the bidding of the social and cultural engineers who want to write into the positive law of the Nation a legal equivalency between homosexual partnerships and marriages...
This administration has revealed its disrespect for the robust vision of religious liberty enshrined in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This is made most clear in the HHS Mandate. The Free Exercise of Religion, so integral to the American experiment in ordered liberty, is placed in jeopardy in the Presidents second term. ...

Catholic voters went for Barack Obama by 50 to 48 percent, mirroring the national result according to exit polls.
Catholics have voted for the winner in every election since 1972, making them one of the most reliable swing vote barometers.
Many Catholics are Hispanic and there is no breakdown of the numbers between how Hispanic Catholics and other Catholics voted.
Catholics still voted for the incumbent despite efforts by many Catholic bishops to portray parts of Obamacare which deal with contraception as an attack on religion.
In addition, three states passed same sex marriage laws despite strong opposition from Catholic leaders. Voters in Washington, Maine and Maryland supported the marriage legislation.
