    Perhaps the bishops should look more at the platform of those elected than the color of their skin. I do not see this election as a point in history to be celebrated by Catholics.

  2. I sincerely hope that the bishops are going to come out very strongly against Obama’s planned policies for this country, especially his pro-abortion (not even pro choice) stance. I fear for our country under an Obama presidency, and it is the first time in my 30+ years of voting that a presidential candidate has scared me and that I have heard a significant number of others express the same fears. And I am tired of people thinking that my fear is because of his race. Race does not enter into my decisions. I am not prejudice and I shouldn’t have to defend that. Obama wants to legalize the most barbaric form of abortion, take away states’ rights to regulate abortion, take away freedom of religion/conscience by not allowing medical professionals to refuse to assist with or perform abortion. In addition, he wants to clone embryos for the sole purpose of using them for biological experiments. In other words, create human beings for the sole purpose of aborting/killing them. There is more, but I’ll try to refrain myself.
    It is historic to have a black president-elect (it has yet to be determined if he is American or Kenyan), but I fear that his presidency will push America into socialism/communism and socialized medicine. I am trying to research this, but didn’t Our Lady of Fatima say that Russia would be converted and America would become communistic? I may be totally wrong on the latter piece. I hope so.
    I humbly think that the bishops should request that priests be more vocal about the morality of abortion while still expressing compassion for the mother. I also think that this is an excellent time to ask Catholics to start praying the rosary for the conversion of America, as we did for the conversion of Russia. Obama is definitely not going to bring morality back to America. In fact, he will push us even farther from morality.
    Sorry, I just had to vent. I am so worried about our country, the future of Catholic hospitals that refuse to perform abortions, and the future of freedom of religion in our country (which is already being chipped away). This is only a fraction of my fears.
    May the Immaculate Conception, the patroness of our country, intercede to God on behalf of America so that America will be brought back to God. We need to pray to her.
