O'Connor's Resignation

Not to be too apocalyptic, but...

"Proclaim ye this among the nations: Prepare war, raise up the strong: let them come, let all the men of war come up. Cut your ploughshares into swords, and your spades into spears. Let the weak say: I am strong. Break forth, and come, all ye nations from round about, and gather yourselves together: there will the Lord cause all thy strong ones to fall down. Let them arise, and let the nations come up into the valley of Josaphat: for there I will sit to judge all nations round about." (Joel 3:10-12)

Everyone quotes Isaiah, but no one ever quotes Joel.

Now we will see if the Republican party can be trusted or if a new party needs to be formed.

Or perhaps, taking a broader view, we shall see if the entire American system can be trusted or if a new system -- one more compatible with Catholicism -- needs to be advanced in its place.

Oh, there's no doubt that a new system, more in line with Catholicism, needs to supplant the present culture and Constitution of the United States. Getting from here to there, however, that's where it gets difficult. . . .

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle! St. Godfrey of Bouillon, pray for us!

How exactly do you plan on selling a switch to a system more in line with Catholicism --- when Catholics are a minority?

The apostles were also in a minority, but they managed it.

Actually, there are more conservative Christian political options now than we have had in probably 20 years. They may not be Catholic, but from a political perspective, only the death penalty is a major division. The nice thing about this is that the majority of them realize that to make any lasting change, we all have to stick together.

I plan on helping convert the U.S. to Catholicism (starting with the members of the U.S. Catholic Church) -- then the switch will happen as a matter of course.

I know its a long stretch, but just in case "W" is reading this -

I think Alan Keyes would make a nice addition to the SCOTUS.
