Time to Build a Tower: Obama Reelection Requires a Movement for Life, Family, Freedom and Solidarity Comments

What the results of this Presidential election require is a new movement dedicated to authentic social justice, rightly understood - and not some counterfeit.  We need a true human rights movement which is authentically ecumenical and unapologetically dedicated to life, family, freedom and solidarity.

    The loss of the entire rust-belt...every state without exception...Michigan, Ohio, PA, and throw in Wisconsin while you're at it. These are all heavily Catholic areas. This election is a condemnation of many Catholics in this country. At one time it was called "Catholic" Ohio and now it goes yet again for a man who is literally an enemy of God and His Church. How many dioceses...how many Catholic institutions...have sued Obama over the last few months for his illegal and unjust actions, yet Catholics still voted for him in droves, especially in Catholic heavy areas like Youngstown and Toledo. God will not bless OH nor the car industry in that state. A chastisement is coming. It has already hit the Church and it will hit our country soon. Perhaps this will act as a wake-up call that this country is not the same and that the Church, in her members, is a shell of what she used to be.

    The message from our Bishops and Priests during the election season is, "Vote you conscience".

    51% and more of Catholics voted for Obama and the continued disregard for the sanctity of life in the womb and th ederly. My wife and daughter are Catholic, and as I tell my wife, I will never become a Catholic becasue Catholics lack conviction in your faith.

    Thank you for such an insightful and encouraging article. May there be an abundance of priests and bishops who see it thus.

    While Obama was not who we were hoping to elect, it is God's will.
    He knows what is best for us, even if it doesn't seem like a good plan to us.
    Romney truly was gracious in his speech, and I sincerely appreciate and applaud his un-critical statement towards Obama, and how we need to stand united and pray for America.
    Thank you Romney for being respectful and mature.

    But CBS...really? How ridiculous to be saying Romney was over-confident of victory, and near to crumbling when he got the news. I really dislike that biased news channel.
    God Bless,
    :)

    It's time we abandon the compromising Republican party for the better Constitution Party- one that actually holds to pro-life tenants of "no abortions, no exceptions."
