On a General Election

The accursèd power which stands on Privilege
(And goes with Women, and Champagne and Bridge)
Broke -- and Democracy resumed her reign:
(Which goes with Bridge, and Women and Champagne).

Hilaire Belloc, 1894

    Pelosi is enjoying the "honeymoon" now,but let's wait a litle until the hard times come. Then we shall see how she does. The priests who approve of her non-Catholic views of "choice" for abortions will also be in for some hard times.

    Now if Fr. Pavone would just make a statement supporting Judy's appeal to the Bishops, on Nancy. Wouldn't that be great!!

    Gino, I agree: God Bless Judie Brown & the American Life League! I think this is one of the defining moments for the Church in the Western World. It's unimaginable that only a dozen or so Bishops in the USA have done the right thing to hopefully save the souls of those pro-aborts who call themselves Catholic, prevent grave scandal to the faithful & sacriligeous acts such as Pelosi's use of the Sacrifice of the Mass as PR for her political ambitions. Canon 915 exists for a reason.

    Ms. Pelosi looks mighty happy in the picture; she must be dreaming of more abortions and gay marriage. That's ok though; our stalwart bishops will have special masses for this good Catholic. Judy Brown is fighting the good fight; it probably argues for at least one woman priest!

    We promise to stop corruption so we will have convicted felons and crooks lead our committees. We promise to eliminate special interests so we will have lavish parties hosted by our special interests. We promise to work is a spirit of by-partisanship so we will shut out all opposition for 100 hours. We promise to balance the budget so we will increase spending and cook the books. After all, all animals are equal but some are more equal than others.
