This is not a political blog, but...
As the nation gears up for the 2012 Presidential election, traditionalists are faced once again with an unsavory choice: having to choose between a neo-conservative and a liberal.
However, it is becoming increasingly clear that the liberal choice is definitely the worse.
The resent attack on the "ministerial exception" by Obama's Department of Justice in the Hosanna-Tabor Church v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission case being heard by the supreme court is just one more indication that the Obama administration is taking deadly aim at severely limiting religious freedom in this country. Even by just limiting the ministerial exception in hiring practices there could follow profoundly negative consequences for Catholic institutions. Catholic schools could be forced to keep rabidly anti-Catholic teachers in the classroom, and parishes may be forced to employ tattooed Satanists with hundreds of piercings as parish secretaries!
Another blatant example is the new regulations from the Department of Health and Human Services that severely curtails conscience protection laws, and could force Catholic institutions to provide employee insurance that covers contraception, sterilization and abortion. The current Secretary of Health and Human Services is Kathleen Sebelius, one of many liberal "catholics" employed in the Obama administration, whose intent is to force the Catholic Church into radical change by external, government coercion. By forcing Catholic institutions to provide health insurance plans that provide contraception, sterilizations and abortions either Catholic institutions will have to stop being Catholic or simply disappear. This is a full scale declaration of war on the Catholic Church by the government of the United States under the Obama regime.
Not to mention Obama's overt and wholehearted support for the abortion industry, a very long list of offenses could be penned. There is simply a world of difference between the mindset of the traditional Catholic and Obama and those who support him. There is a wide social, moral and philosophical gulf between the Democrat Party's electorate and traditionalists (and the rest of the sane world for that matter). This wide gulf can be seen clearly in the recent "Occupy Wall Street Protests", which horrifically demonstrate the perverted mentality of the average liberal on the street and the depths of depravity to which our society is sinking.
This is the face of the Democratic Party's electorate:
God help us from this mongrel crowd of revolting miscreants, unwashed delinquents, and debauched degenerates. As traditional Catholics, we probably don't see this sort of mob on a regular basis, but with the Obama administration in power, the irrational and insane mentality of these people will continue to greatly influence the future of the Catholic Church in America.
