Former sspx seminarian, former catholic, pro-Obama. Our republic HAS been saved tonight. John Paul Stevens can now retire, having served his country well, and be replaced by a worthy, liberal-minded justice.

Nothing good can come from a leader who is in favor of infantcide and has terrorists and communists for friends. I am afraid Obama IS a punishment. The country will probably be forever changed for the worse.

Lets wait to see which bishop or cardinal will say vice-president Bidens inaugural Mass??

I believe we will look back on this in history and see Obama for who he was - the most pro-abortion president we've ever had. And it will be a giant stain on his achievement of becoming the first black president. I posted on this today: http://tinyurl.com/5c242a

Let me know what you think! Thanks for the great blog!

Please. The only stain we should be talking about is the one left behind for Obama to clean up — 8 years of incompetence that did tremendous damage to our country. On the contrary, I believe our country has no where to go but up.

As for abortion... if the Church really wants to stop abortions, why don't they start a conversation with those at risk for having them? Win their hearts and minds...and maybe even provide them with help. We need to stop depending on the government to do the work for us.


Obama received a majority of the Catholic vote. That fact makes me sick, and it makes me ashamed of the Catholic Church in the United States.

I must express my extreme disappointment at some of our Catholic officials' behavior/statements during this election. In particular, a radio address by Bishop Gracida of the Diocese of Corpus Christi, TX, who recorded a message that reads, "This is Bishop Rene H. Gracida, reminding all Catholics that they must vote in this election with an informed conscience. A Catholic cannot be said to have voted in this election with a good conscience if they have voted for a pro-abortion candidate. Barack Hussein Obama is a pro-abortion candidate." With the addition of the candidate's middle name, Bishop Gracida used the tactic of inciting hatred, fear, and racism into his message against Obama. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope there was no malice intended, however, given the extensive coverage of the issue of race in this election, I cannot help but have an inkling of doubt in my heart that he knew full well what he was doing. That said, I expect much, much more from our Catholic leaders. It would have been easy to dismiss an everyday Catholic parishioner making the same statement, but I believe our leaders should be held to a higher standard. It is inexcusable for that kind of behavior among the leaders of the Catholic Church and I am ashamed to be associated with the Bishop's statement as it is written. No one refers to Mr. McCain or any other candidate in an unofficial capacity using his middle name. There was no other reason for Bishop Gracida to do so in this case. His message, with which I agree, would have been just as effective. However, with a single word, he likely alienated the nearly 2 million Black Catholics in this country. I pray for the Catholic Church, especially our leaders that they will be as vociferous in their condemnation of ALL evils as they are in their condemnation of abortion.

God Bless.

Barack Hussein Obama sat in a black racist church for twenty years listening to the black racist Rev. Wright. Barack Hussein Obama is also a friend of Raila Odinga of Kenya who incited muslim mobs to murder over a thousand Christians and displace hundreds of thousands more.

Those facts about Obama don't bother you. But, a single mention of Obama's middle name is reason for concern. You have interesting priorities. God help us.

Nik,
"if the Church really wants to stop abortions, why don't they start a conversation with those at risk for having them? Win their hearts and minds...and maybe even provide them with help. We need to stop depending on the government to do the work for us."
This comment shows that you have yet to do your homework on the many Catholic outreaches to women in crisis pregnancies and to people in every sort of need. One of the biggest problems in getting the word out about all the free help that is available (including post-abortive help) is that the media doesn't like to report it, and Planned Parenthood, which we fund whether we like it or not, blocks every message of assistance we offer, even to the point of blocking Adoption referral signs, and taking resource fliers right out of the hands of ingoing clients.
If the government continues to support the "shielding" of women from offers of help, then the majority of abortive women will continue to be ignorant of what is available for their benefit.
