INSINUATION OF EVIL
Matt Abbot's column today is about evil--the way it insinuates itself into our thinking with the help of our politicians. The column features quotes from Father James Farfaglia, Corpus Christi, and Father Richard Perozich, San Diego, talking about the way evil is taking away our freedom and negating the separation of church and state.
Abbott and both priests are sounding alarm bells about the coming election and the fear that pro-abortion Obama will be our next president. It's a sober and discouraging column because I believe it does reflect present realities, and I fear the wrath of God if this election goes the way it appears it will go.
As much as I resent what the bishops have done with sexual abusers, this call of theirs to vote pro-life is a call that can't be ignored if we want to remain religiously free.
May God have mercy on us!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
