"The Lord told Samuel, it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king!
The Lord told Samuel tell the people, "this is what the king who will reign over you will do: He will take your sons and make them serve in his army. ...He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants.... He will take a tenth of your grain and vintage and give it to his officials....He will take a tenth of your flock and you yourselves will become his slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, and the Lord will not answer you in that day because you have rejected the Lord as your king." But they refused to listen to Samuel; as we have refused Our Lord and cried out "Our father who art in Washington, give us this day our daily bread.". We have sold our children into death and slavery due to the hardness of our hearts.
In a recent Catholic Commentator Fr. Michael Miceli apologized to the African American community for the sin of segregation. "Forgiveness for allowing fear to keep us apart, to continue to fester misunderstanding. Forgive us for not being brave and courageous enough to stand up to injustice, to stand up for the good news."
Since I was born in New York and I do not have any relatives in the south, I can only empathize with his feelings of guilt. Yet I do feel an apology is in order over the cowardice and injustice that allowed pro-murder, and pro-sexual perverts like Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama into office and allowing President Obama to give the graduation speech and receive a honorary degree at Notre Dames commencement service.The number of Catholic politicians that have betrayed Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church is staggering. Only a few courages Bishops have publicly condemned and excommunicated these baptized pagans who have not only seperated themselves from the Body of Christ but have been complicit in the abortion holocaust which has claimed billions of lives and sexually perverted countless millions. The consequences of this betrayal is the attempt by the Obama administration to take away religious liberty and rights of conscience for all true Christians in the country. Persecution may come but fear not; no one can take away our rights, since they are given to us by God alone.
Cardinal Burke declared: "We can never talk enough about abortion as long as in our society innocent and defenseless human life is being attacked in the most savage way. I mean this literally is a massacre of the unborn."
