Barack Obama wasted no time in naming a radical pro-abort as extreme as himself to serve as his chief of staff. Rahm Emanuel, representative from Illinois, has a zero rating on pro-life legislation. He favors taxpayer funding of abortion and supports Planned Parenthood, he voted to fund the U.N. agency involved in China's forced abortion program. He opposes parental consent/notification before a minor's abortion and wants to force military hospitals to commit abortions. Like his extremist crony he supports partial birth abortion. No surprise really. Murdering babies is the mantra and the defining characteristic of this new era and Obama is wasting no time in rubbing America's nose in it. He will do what he promised -- sign the Freedom of Choice Act to revoke every shred of protection to the babies. And the crowds will cheer their leader as long as they get their tax cut.
The day after the election we heard all about how Obama will bring us together as a nation. How is that possible? Can pro-life Christians take the bloody hands of a modern-day Hitler who embraces the genocide of the "unwanted" unborn? I certainly cannot. Nor can I congratulate him on his win like Archbishop Wuerhl and Cardinal George. America chose a tyrant. Did Cardinal von Galen congratulate the Nazis on their win? I seriously doubt it. I cannot wish Obama well; I pray for his conversion. He does not bring "change" but bloody business as usual and more of it. As for "hope," what hope is there in the mangled dead body of an innocent baby and the mutilated body of his mother?
As Joshua said to the Israelites, "Choose this day whom you will serve...as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. I recommit to the battle to defend the unborn. I urge all to put on the armor of God and be determined to fight and not grow weary. Become informed and be an effective footsoldier for the Blessed Mother with a rosary in one hand and the sword of the spirit, the word of God, in the other.
