Four years ago, the Vatican issued congratulations to the Messiah Most Miserable upon his election. This week their enthusiasm was greatly reduced, as evidenced in this Catholic News Service release, stating what Obama should do "if he truly wants to be the president of all Americans."
Dr Gerard Nadal, in Catholic Lane, published an article entitled "Obama's Election Mandate and Ours". Dr Nadal voices profound disappointment (which I share) at overly-conciliatory remarks made by Speaker of the House John Boehner. The House of Representatives holds the national purse strings, per the US Constitution. The HHS mandate could be stalled, or at least slowed down, if the House does its duty. Will the GOP House Republicans find the backbone to do so?
Finally, Father John Hollowell of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis wrote an article entitled "Election Reflection for Warrior Catholics". It's an excellent read. We are, after all, the Church Militant.
