God after 2012: How did
election change religion and
politics landscape?

Washington Post, by Elizabeth Tenety

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/10/2012 9:44:05 AM

Tuesday’s election may have put an end to the ‘Mormon Moment,’ but for people of faith (and no faith), the results revealed new chasms in the religion and politics landscape. With Romney’s defeat and same-sex marriage now legal in Washington, Maryland and Maine the social conservative movement is already in the process of surveying the damage. Faith leaders from Southern Baptist Seminary President Al Mohler to the conservative Catholics at National Catholic Register are evaluating what Mohler called “new moral landscape in America,” where the old religious norms are unpopular as public policy.

It´s clear that American Catholics ignored their bishops´ instructions on how to vote.

Americans have adopted the Democrat Cargo Cult and accepted Obama as their Savior.

God is still God. He is purifying His children for we have strayed for too long in this land blessed with bounty. Most of His children have gone native. He will not be mocked.

Look back on history and see how God allowed unbelievers to rule over His people. It was to bring His chosen back to Him. Nebuchednezzer, Attila the Hun known as The Scourge of God and others. He is still sovereign. He will accomplish His purpose.

Let not your heart be troubled.

Evangelical voters can´t have it both ways: either be involved in politics (including the very basic task of VOTING) or play martyr.

"New moral landscape?"

There is nothing new under the sun. A casual read of the Old Testament (or whatever you care to call it) will demonstrate this truth time and again. There is always an Ahab and Jezebel. There is always a Rehoboam, there is always an Ahaz -- and a significant percentage of moron sheeple who are ready, willing and able to follow these evil leaders down the path to certain destruction.

I´m not particularly religious and I´m certainly no fundamentalist, but I know history when I see it happening before my eyes. The United States -- maybe for the last possible time -- has willfully chosen evil over good, and God or no God, there will be hell to pay. It´s inevitable, unless a modern-day Nehemiah moment springs up out of the wreckage. Good luck with that...

FTA:..."Religious progressives too are taking a look at their new policy priorities..."

So now I guess "religious progressives," whatever that means, view The Holy Scriptures, that American Civilization was founded upon, in the same light as the supreme law of the land, The Constitution of The United States, just "living, breathing" documents!

This Catholic will NEVER vote for a Democrat. I voted for Carter, but I was young and stupid then. The bishops are right. Too bad the people in the pew (most of whom take their worldview from secularism) are too dumb to see it.

I will cling to my Bible and my rosary and take to heart these words "be not afraid". I put God before Mammon.

What religions?

The very small gay minority is being forcefed down our throats on TV everynight. They are the modern family?

I want to see where in America that family lives. However, young adults now see it as normal.

I have nothing against gays. Many want to be just left alone; but the fringe radicals force it on us.

The 47 percenters want more "Free" stuff from Obama´s stash without any clue who produces it. Soon more and more cities will look like Warsaw after the war. Look at Detroit.

Yes elections have consequences.
Plus we will probably get at least 2 super liberals on the Supreme Court, who may tell us it is illegal to pray.

Is it 2014 yet, so we can vote for a new Senate?

There was very little offered from the pulpit during Sunday homilies at our area Catholic Churches. We church jumped over the last few months to see if there were pastors willing to get loud and proud like the black preachers do regarding the 3 non negotiables
1Life
2Marriage between 1 man 1 woman PERIOD
3 Religious Freedom

If I know about the "top 3", the priests sure should have been hearing from Bishop Arthur Serratelli on how to talk about these subjects. The most we got in NJ was a bulletin "insert."
I am composing a nice respectful letter to him in the envelope provided to return my yearly "donation" to the diocese. Our $1000 yearly pledge they look for will NOT be given. My explanations to The Honorable Bishop will be thorough. Our tithing will also be severely complicated by the election of this Marxist. Even while doing this, I shall "Be Not Afraid" God will claim the ultimate justice.

As the Bible says, there is a time for everything. I just read some postings after a Roland Martin article about so-called voter suppression being a good thing and encouraging the turn out of minority votes. Many of the comments said "we took back OUR country". I´m so glad they finally feel that way.

Okay, let the White Christians rest from their labors of trying to keep it from all going to hell. We will focus on our own families and communities. It´s yours now. Many, if not most, of you claim to be religious. How do you plan to fix YOUR country´s brokenness and sin?

"Democrat Cargo Cult!" Thank you, #2, for that vivid picture. The 1962 film, Mondo Cane, included footage of a cargo cult in the south Pacific. Scary, but instructive.

#8 - It´s not just the people in the pew (most of whom take their worldview from secularism) too dumb to see it...try decades of active support of the Democrat agenda by nuns, priests, bishops and the cardinals who are at the pinnacle. THey have long compromised Catholic religious dogma at the altar of the Democrat platform, allowed to give occasional lip service to abortion. Now, Catholicism, Inc. gets double-crossed on Obamacare and the bishops discover their lip service is no longer part of the program, and they will now pay directly for the various sacraments of the cult of population control. I´m just waiting for the IRS to extend the "non-religious" logic used to include Catholic hospitals and other assets under Obamacare to extend to the tax exemptions to every square foot of Church property and its accounts. Chapels may be treated as are home offices. The object was to secularize medical services by driving religious hospitals from the business. It will succeed, and Cardinal Dolan need only look in a mirror to see why. Those in the pews will further thin as reality sets in. Dolan is no Wyszynski, not presently, and this country and the Church need one.

How many are aware that more Mormons voted for McCain than Romney? That is a true testament to what a poor candidate he turned out to be. But I´m sure he did better than any of the other candidates would have. We´ll have to depend on our very strong next generation waiting in the wings.

Stop navel gazing! When 99% of communities voted for Obama, it is a database vote, not a human one. The election was fixed, which is why Obama was so laid back in 1st debate.

Focus on fixing elections, then navel gaze.

I believe they are planning to eliminate Christmas altogether. Instead it will be "The Holy Feast of The Adoration of The Obama" when gifts are exchanged with "More Free Stuff From Obama" on the pre-printed tags. A website willbe set up to report neighbors who do not festoon their homes with decorations praising the Big O.

Faith and belief are deeply personal choices. Whatever happens as a result of the "progressives" supposedly taking over the country will be of little consequence to true Believers. I guess in the Democrat lexicon "progressive" really stands for "anything goes and there are no moral absolutes and the Ten Commandments are just suggestions worthy of consideration."

The really disappointing part of all of this is that the churches, a significant number, have adopted the progressive agenda. If there are no moral absolutes to the churches, one can see how far we have fallen. The black churches at one time were the bastion of faith and belief but now they have also succumbed to the progressive agenda by voting for Obama because of his skin color and not rejecting him because of his character.

Be not afraid, God reigns supreme. Good luck to the atheists and non-believers because one day you´ll face His judgment and you shall go wanting.

I believe Father has abandoned America to it´s self destruction just as he abandoned Israel after they abandoned Him. However, Father did give Israel a second chance and they and we are living in that chance now.

One thing this election has proven is that Obama was correct when he was on his apology tour of the Islamic countries where he stated. "America is not a Christian Nation".

There is no way a Christian could ever vote for the Marxist communist democrats.

America is split between the children of Adam and the children of the Devil and his son Cain.

John 8:42 - 47.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

47 He that is of God heareth God´s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

God has no wrath. Wrath implies destruction. God is the Creator, and over the millenia God has merely accepted those in His heaven who have accepted Him on earth, and pushed those away who have refused to accept. Praise God the Creator and Separator.

UAW drops NLRB case to

CNN Money, by Chris Isidore    Original Article

NEW YORK -The United Auto Workers has dropped its challenge of a vote to organize workers at Volkswagen´s only U.S. plant that went against the union. The National Labor Relations Board was set to start a hearing Monday on the UAW´s complaint that Republican politicians improperly interfered before the Feb. 14 vote at the Chattanooga, Tenn. plant, which the union lost 712 to 626. But the union issued a statement Monday saying it was dropping its appeal because fighting the election through the NLRB could have dragged on for years.

As it sought to recruit well-heeled investors, an untested and unprofitable Miami company named InnoVida brought aboard a trusted Florida figure in 2007: Jeb Bush, the former governor and the brother of a sitting president. For potential stockholders, the imprimatur of Mr. Bush, who joined InnoVida as a paid consultant and a member of the board of directors, conferred credibility on the young start-up. That credibility did not last long. It turned out that the leaders of InnoVida, a manufacturer of inexpensive building materials, had faked documents, lied about the health of the business and misappropriated $40 million in company

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
