Nothing, as far as I can tell. I posted this thread on Twitter about the election.
For the last forty years, both the Republicans and the Catholic Church have soft peddled their beliefs. It was best not to rock the boat and make a fuss.
Here we are. Seventeen year old girls aren't enjoying the boys' attention, shopping for a husband, they're getting mutilated.
The truth of the matter is that neither the party nor the Church gave a rat's rear end about the girls. They just wanted things to be easy. They avoided conflict.
Here we are.
Everyone wanted to put on their Kente cloths and kneel about George Floyd. No one wanted to talk about half the black population being massacred through abortion. That was icky!
Here we are. Those beautiful children aren't.
Republicans didn't want to talk about marriage. The Church didn't want to talk about sin.
Here we are. Check out the English language test scores in Jackson, Mississippi.
No one cared about those black children.
So the red wave didn't materialize.
So the churches are empty except for the elderly.
So what? What did we lose?
Nothing that the party and the Church hadn't already surrendered.
Here in San Diego, the Republican candidates were pounded endlessly over abortion. They didn't reply. They didn't own their positions nor did they defend babies. It would have been simplicity itself to show a picture of a baby and say, "I don't want this child killed," but they didn't.
They didn't defend any red positions at all. It was all attack ads, all the time. I have no idea at all what was at stake in that election for conservatives.
This is exactly what drives me crazy about our Catholic bishop. He refuses to profess the faith in public. He wants to wear the robes and get the respect, but he stands for nothing that might conflict with the culture.
As for the Democrats, they were constantly on message. I know exactly what I'm getting with them.
- Racial segregation
I got no problem with that. I don't support any of it, but I know who they are because they tell me and defend their beliefs.
So what was at stake on Tuesday? What did the reds lose? Beats me.
|The Republicans didn't even try to defend babies.
