Look for the Catholic Church now to have its Emily Litella moment and go crawling back into the shadows in meek acceptance of the mandate. They will acquiesce to indirect funding of abortions, just as they have in Europe for over three decades.
Not once did I hear from any Catholic pulpit the appeal that it was our moral duty to vote against Obama. The “voter guides” we got on Sunday before the election were a muddy, muddled mess. Abortion, “social justice”, “immigration reform”...could not make heads or tails out of it.
When the church becomes a social club and stops standing for anything, what do you expect? I drive by the smae church everyday with a rainbow flag outside that says: “God is still speaking.” I agree, but somehow I am hearing somethign different then they are. There will be a reckoning in the church, we have been lazy for too long.
This election is disapointing, but I also find myself inspired and more committed than ever to do the right thing, cling to Biblical principles, and keep the true Gospel within my heart and mind. I will choose candidates that have my values, win or lose.
