“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

The Big Day: The Big States

After looking at the Electoral Map more times than I ever wanted to over the past month, here is what the election will come down to. John McCain has to take 3 out of 4 of these states: Ohio, Pennsylvania,Virginia and North Carolina to have a chance to win the election. If McCain does not take three out of four of these states, the election is over and call it a night. If he does, it is a ballgame and he must flip one more Obama leaning state for the Presidency.

There was a great story on Bill Bennett’s Morning in America radio show this morning. 50 public polls had all stated that Dewey was going to beat Truman on the eve of the election. Harry Truman, thinking there was little hope, went to bed early and told his staff wake him up if something happens. Can you imagine being a candidate for the Presidency of the United States and not staying up for the election returns? He woke up at 4AM in the morning to find out he was up by 2 million votes, then said “We won, it’s over…”

look, im an evangelical having been raised roman catholic, i am outraged that 25% of evangelicals voted for a man that cherishes roe vs. wade, can you explain why 55% catholics voted for a champion of abortion...i write off the evangelicals as being unregenerated or just plain stupid or racist, reverse racism in this case.
