    We have all heard of romanità. Perhaps this is a bit of americanità. Still, while civility is important, it's hard to envision Sts. Peter or Paul or John taking such a mealy mouth approach with Caesar.

    What is more, Catholic Church, is that 50% of Your adherents voted for Obama. You are doing a terrible, terrible, terrible job at leading this generation and the next towards Christ. Look at this. LOOK AT THIS. Secularism is on the rise. Atheism is on the rise. Why? WHY IS THIS? BECAUSE LIBERALISM IS ON THE RISE! I am 22 years old. My children will grow up in an English speaking world that for the first time in some 1700 years will not know Jesus Christ. Does this not alarm you? DOES THIS NOT ALARM YOU!? My children will grow up in a world which relegates Christianity as nothing more than a goofy arcane practice, a "different" and silly outlook on life rather than as the truth, a world in which abortion is rendered innocuous and homosexuality is the new normal, a world in which there is no good and evil but merely differences in opinion, a world in which Jesus is an offensive and condemnable message. This is the world that we have created, this is the world that has grown while You, Catholic Church, have done nothing in the past 100 years but stand idly by and allow it to fester beneath your feet. This is the product of Your ignorance. Take your modernism and bury it. Blot it out. Blot it all out. Take your political correctness and replace it again with the truth. Lull to sleep Your worldliness and re-awaken the glory You once had. We need an awakening, we need a renaissance, we need courage, bravery, adamancy, and above all the Lord.

    I would rather that the Bishops statement read:


    The Catholic Bishops of the United States offer our prayers and those of the millions of faithful Catholics across the nation, both those who voted for you and those who did not, that you would respectfully give special urgent attention to the fact our religious liberty is being severely challenged by the Affordable Healthcare Act as set forth by your HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius. For the first time in our history the ability of our hospitals, schools, and various charities to serve the general public is in jeopardy as a result of the regulations currently in force making it impossible to operate these facilities without violating the tenants of our faith.

    I have had enough. I have had enough pandering. Catholic Church, time to do something.
