The Current Situation

Here's Pope Benedict a few years ago:

"If the moral principles underpinning the democratic process are themselves determined by nothing more solid than social consensus, then the fragility of the process becomes all too evident--herein lies the real challenge for democracy."  --quoted by Fr G Rutler

Another from Cdl. Wyszynski of Poland about 1953:

"We teach that it is proper to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's.  But when Caesar sits himself upon the altar, we respond curtly:  he may not."

Rutler goes on:

When laws are legislated that invent as "rights" conduct contrary to natural law, power usurps truth.  So St. Thomas Aquinas said.

This is the current situation, and neither Clinton nor Trump will change it.  That 'fragile process' is sorely tested and may not persevere.  George Washington was right, ya'know; "....let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion."

He was right.  It cannot.  Thus the State moves into the vacuum and makes 'laws' as the State sees fit, supported by "justices" who know not what is true,  as Cdl. Wyszynski observed--and he was slapped into a Commie prison for that.

That's coming here, people.
