Obviously there is danger but the previous Pope stood up to the Soviet Union and prevailed. This one should work to expose Obama, beginning with Arpaio's work, and prevail against the American Marxists.

You need to consider that the pope is a servant to the universal church. This is an American problem and for that, we have local bishops to address the problem. Some of those bishops are also members of the College of Cardinals; hence, they bear a greater responsibility to speak on behalf of the Catholic Church in America.

However, to your credit, I can't help but think of the recent situation in Spain. Following terrorist bombings in Madrid and other cities, the citizens of Spain elected a Socialist government. Like Obama's administration, it proved to be oppressive, especially against the Catholic Church. Subsequently, the pope made two visits to Spain, the most recent one being last August, to attend World Youth Day. Those two visits proved to be sufficient to 'wake up' the sleeping catholics who then voted out the socialists in the most recent election. Let us pray that the American catholics can rise up this year and follow the example of their Spanish counterparts.

And the situation in Poland was a Polish problem. If things go south here, as it looks like they might, it will be a dark time for the entire Western World.

Ms. Fluke (rhymes with f**k, I'm told.) is just the tip of the iceberg.

Your post made me wonder about a visit from the pope here sometime near November?
