Obama Wins: A Chance for Us to Become Free Again
The Remnant ^ | 11/17/2012 | Michael J. Matt

Posted on 11/19/2012 3:38:23 AM PST by IbJensen

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"now the law of the land and the slain bodies of millions of aborted babies clogging the sewers of American cities and consciences alike? All that was needed in order for us to be redeemed was another silly election? Please! Ideas have consequences—and so do crimes of infanticide and the other sins that cry to heaven for vengeance.

Barack Obama is not the problem. 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 simply because America, like any nation, will always only get the leaders she deserves. We told God to go to hell a long time ago, and God is now 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 in perspective. Out of fear and sheer desperation, most of us threw our hats in the ring for a Mormon, big government-backing, sometimes pro-life, moderately pro-gay rights candidate who is conservative only by comparison. 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. They took our votes for granted, again, by downplaying the rather quaint social issues in favor of the ever-sophisticated pocketbook issues. Once again, it didn’t pay off for them. 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. Decent folks are obviously fed up with the charade and will thus 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 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 moral equilibrium--a sobering fact that will surely cause them to realize they're standing in knee-deep water that is rapidly rising and that it's time to seek higher ground. In other words, the party is over, and half the country is staring into the eyes of the beast.

This is a golden opportunity for us, then—not to accuse Obama for being a closet Muslim or whatever else—but rather to encourage all 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 Modernism that has plagued the Church for too long, before the Church in America is crushed beneath the heels of militant atheists. Moderate, jovial, doctrine-phobic bishops lost big tonight. Cardinal Dolan, Governor Chris Christie—what’s the difference! Who cares! Millions have 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 most 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. I'm not destroyed by the election results. Rather, I feel as though we've finally hit bottom, and there's no place to go from here but up.

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 salivating at “shock and awe” over Baghdad. 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 what about those pro-abortion First Ladies, you remember them—Nancy, Barbara and Laura? Did you ever really accept that all those supposedly pro-life presidents just happened to have wives who were completely in favor of baby killing, and that that "little difference of opinon" posed no real obstacle to their loving marriages? Please!

And Congressman Mark Foley, remember him...the “conservative pro-lifer" with the penchant for the pages on Capitol Hill?

And was GOP “conservative” Arnold Schwarzenegger "one of ours" when he was conducting homosexual marriages inside the governor’s mansion in California?

Remember the pain of division that set in between us and our 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, just because our president said he was "prolife" and doing God’s holy work? Well, we're not divided like that any more. Obama and the GOP have inadvertently accomplished the impossible: They've managed to galvanize the pro-family, pro-life and pro-Christ forces into a strong and united front of total opposition against the Christophoic revolution here in America and across the world.

Indeed, God is good!

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 great.

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 considerable resistance from here on. Millions will now unite against their Godless agenda, promising gigantic gridlock which may well prove to be the last, best hope for America and for us all.

So, did we lose? Did we even 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 attempting to buy some time and praying America would wake up in the meantime. But if waking America from her slumber was the objective, then that mission was accomplished for at least half the country the moment Ohio was declared for Barak Obama. In other words, we're not alone!

For the next four years at least, millions of Americans will stand fast against the Godless policies of Washington, D.C.—policies which, again, let’s face it, on the issues that matter most to the soul of our country and the future of our children would have changed only minimally had the well-meaning Mormon been victorious and the so-called Christian right been once again cajoled into peaceful coexistence with the forces of hell itself.

So, to recap: We lost a race in which we really didn’t have a pony. And, as a result of that "defeat", millions of Americans had their blinders removed in an instant on November 6, 2012. They now know exactly where they stand. The slumbering Christian giant in America has finally roused himself from his utopian dreams.

Obama represents our chastisement, perhaps, but certainly 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 have a chance to be truly free--something they haven't known for many, many decades.

God writes straight with crooked lines, and if America is to be humbled and brought to her knees then perhaps she will also be redeemed in the process. For this we hope and pray, even as we vow to fight against the reelected regime and never so surrender the old Faith of our Fathers—come what may. Viva Cristo Rey!

Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. Rev. 18:4

The second darkest day for America was when Obama was elected president on an unknown pedigree. The first dark day for America was when the same charletan was re-elected.

I see we have an optimist in the house.

But, sorry to say, we're still a looooong way from the bottom, and our trajectory is still downward.

A fellow asked me why God would allow the ‘o’ to be re-elected. I told him God was too busy making sure Notre Dame was #1 in the BCS to address the ‘o’ problem.

Another Free’per posted last week - it has to start at the home - not in Wash DC - those values that made us great must come from there - not some elected leader — because they do not lead...they are worthless people riding the wagon...we must educate and determine the path for our children to follow...that will save the US!

Boy! Obama has really succeeded in dividing us. - I’m not a Catholic, so I could take the same sort of offense as you have taken, but I don’t. - The best friend you will have as a Jew is the Christian; excepting for the Jew, Yeshua HaMaschiach.

I don’t know why faithful Jews weren’t mentioned in this article. I am a political conservative and an orthodox Catholic and I consider Jews who really believe in God and Torah to be my natural allies. Christianity came from Judaism, and this country’s values should be based on the real Judeo-Christian values.

first of all, he wasn't re-elected....he was put back in power thru massive fraud....

secondly, I and my husband live our lives as best we can, morally, ethically but there is no way our values are mainstream anymore...and there is no way we can force them onto others, except by example...

the opposition party should be a party of fiscal responsibility,strong national defense and a thrifty and thriving middle class....

whether right or wrong, we can not exist on what our moral issues are....there's too many of "them"...the shallow mindless minions..

fiscal conservatism, national defense, and jobs, jobs, jobs for Americans....

if we have to tell everyone how Christian and moral and good we are, then we are none of those....we expand our ideas/morals/ethics by example...not law....

The author is correct. "Us" will be freed of the need to breathe."Us" will be freed of the need to eat."Us" will be freed of the necessity to descid which food "us" will eat. "US" will eat what "us"can get and be glad to get it.

Referrencing your reply: I agree with you. The only silver lining to the otherwise dark black cloud over us is that the parasites and fools that put this sob in power will be starved to death once their usefulness to him is over.

If you were anything more than a culinary Jew (who probably eats pork) you would be joining with your Christian brothers on your knees before the One True God begging His forgiveness. Since you do not understand the rudiments of Judaism scolding you is worthless, Troll.

This is true. Actions have consequences. I don’t believe in Obama’s popularity. He has the montrous power of then Federal Treasury and the deceitful power of the Goebbel’s like machine that is leftist media. Too many people don’t know Jesus’ love, and we haven’t done amgood enough job. that said, they cheated. At least we can say we are prepared for what is to come.

I’m certain the writer probably meant to suggest an imminent return to our Judeo-Christian values, when generalizing about Christian morality — unless of course he had in mind the vast swath of liberal Jews in America who helped re-elect Obama~!

Anyway, it’s all very hopeful, but the church has only been a great and consistent source of disappointment when it comes to electing moral leaders, at least in my neck of the woods, in the backwoods of Buffalo NY.

I guess time will tell.

In Matt. 5: 13, Jesus calls Christians to be the the “salt of the earth,” salt being used to preserve food in His day. This evil world is rotting. If the salt loses its saltiness, it is good for nothing. So it is thrown out and people walk on it. That describes the state of the Church today.

Christians in this country are lazy and cowardly. They act as though this is the only life there is. In the 60 years that Poland was occupied by the Communists, the crucifixes never came down in its classrooms. When the government tried to ban them and a priest was killed in the protest, it sparked the rebellion of the people and the end of Communism.

How many crucifixes are in our public schools? What have Christians done to defend Christ’s Church from the Christ-hating secularists? Will you care when they ban the cross from the buildings in your town because the ACLU is offended?

The Republicrat Party now feels it needs to ‘reach out’ (I’m so damned sick of this term!”) to abortionists, homosexuals, leftist loons and to fill the Republican tent with these types.

I don’t want to associate with ‘these types’ as I believe their program is hell bound. There’s too much of this reaching out to the left side of America’s equation. Look at Juan McCain and John Kerry. McCain actually wants Kerry as the next Secretary of State!

Jindal is criticizing Romney after the election, and circus fat Christie is slapping Obozo on the back for his excellent leadership during the ‘perfect storm.’ Whether this cost Romney the election or not is hard to say.

At any rate, to hell with the Democrats. They’re busily committing suicide now and the Republicrats aren’t worth saving.

Give Americans what they need: a Constituion Party of the Right Wing. Thin central government and a responsive military that includes very few civilians. Stop ALL foreign aid and pull out of all those ‘bases’ abroad and protect the USA!

Hey, Sakie. No denigration towards the Jews!

Jews and Christians are in this together and both believers in the Old Testament need to be converted 100% to Conservatism.

Personally I think He has lifted his hand of protection and letting Satan have his way with the U.S. because we turned our backs on Him, were unthankul, spoiled, and allowed materialism to take over and corrupt each generation more than the last until we have arrived at a place where we are so blind we don’t realize how far we’ve fallen. We all know the ending to the story so we’re just going to have to hang in there and try to impact the world in a positive way the best we can.

What I did seriously tell the fellow is the Old Testament shows that God thinks in much longer terms than he did. The Hebrews repeatedly turned their back on God and then would come back to him after multiple decades. If this Nation will come back to him, he’ll come back to us. He is forgiving but he wants to see “good faith” on our part. If not, “who can say...?”

I agree!

Our hope is that God will move on behalf of His people.
If we are finally awakening and returning to God, then God promises to heal our land.

But without a move of God, the Republic is lost. I doubt we will ever again have an honest election, since the Obamite/Marxists have apparently achieved their coup.

As long as the leftist teachers’ unions are able to monopolize what is taught to young children future generations will continue to reject western religious and cultural values. They are the chief villains followed closely by
Pravda West- the mainstream media and their decadent acolytes in Hollywood.
To achieve these goals those people must be destroyed somehow.

Ah, whenever I hear or read about Christian blah blah blah values, I know the anti-Catholicism is soon to follow or hiddden.

Lo, there it was, something about ignoring Cardinal Dolan. Then, but right after, something about all being united.

OK. No mention of a particular leader.

Judeo-Christian values are what the Constitution is founded on. anyone ignoring all that that entails and includes is struggling to exclude some parts of that.

Our religious leaders who recognize the Constitution are the leaders. That includes Cardinal Dolan as well as Jewish leaders. That’s just the truth.

This article is blather.

Yup. That, and the part about “modernism” (whatever that is) in the Catholic Church. To a lot of these folks, Catholic just ain’t Christian. Oh, well. Most of the screed was tl;dr anyhow.

The Remnant calls itself a Catholic paper. Catholic papers who are in line with the Holy See do not criticize the head of the American church in this manner.

And they never exclude the Jews in politics and culture as this article does

Discernment, guys.

BTW, the Catholic paper of record is the National Catholic Register.
