    Remember no matter who won the election, God is still in charge. Yes we will face the persecution of this age but He is still in charge. No mention of the vote on same sex marriage or openly gay officials being elected. Still we do have shame in this country. General Petraius resigned after an extra marital affair. We also in the year of faith have to look at why Romney did not get elected. Sure the 47% did not help him It made him look like a pharisee . What got Obama elected was the economy and helping the rich and planned parenthood in general the attitude to contraception. I am not suggesting even remotely to change the Churches stance. But there are so many misconceptions that we as a church need to reeducate . Even homeopathic physicians who are not religious say the pill is not good for the human body and there are long term side effects . We need to stand up and speak to other issues such as the treatment of immigrants. But the main point is that God is still in charge and not put our faith in earthly princes. Trust me neither one is a prince.

    Thank you Fr. Irving. Sad, there are very few like you who will bravely speak the truth. Our church is at a crossroads and many have no idea it is silently going away.
