"Clearly, the situation is volatile. Diabolical disorientation drives entire nations–including ours–to the brink of insanity. But for whatever reason God has placed us here and now, and we must look to His Church for guidance. To that end, St. Thomas Aquinas is clear: "Now the lesser evil or the greater good is always to be chosen in preference. And therefore the constant man is compelled to bear with the lesser evil through fear of the greater evil, but he is not compelled to bear with the greater evil in order to avoid the lesser."
"Unless it were mortally sinful to vote for John McCain (which it is not), it seems clear–given the manifest evil of his opponent–what we must do. As Pat Buchanan recently noted: "Support for Roe v. Wade is a litmus test in today’s Democratic Party, where the right to an abortion has been elevated to the highest rank in the constitution. Bottom line. If Obama-Biden wins, Roe is forever. If McCain-Palin wins, Roe could be gone by the decade’s end."
"America’s soul is at stake, and the national bloodletting brought on by abortion must stop before there can be any hope of restoring any sanity to U.S. foreign policy. Despite the neo-cons’ battle for the soul of Sarah Palin, she stands as an eleventh-hour concession on the part of the Republicans that without voters who believe in God, life and family, they can’t defeat the Devil at the polls. This is something traditional Catholics can exploit for the good of a much higher Cause: the restoration of all things in Christ.
"On the other hand, it’s also true that on July 3 Senator and Mrs. McCain visited the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe north of Mexico City. Accompanied by Catholic convert and former Florida governor, Jeb Bush, the McCain party listened intently to Monsignor Monroy as he explained the apparition and the miracle of Juan Diego’s tilma. Though no crowd was on hand to see it, one photographer caught John McCain laying a red rose before the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. While Mrs. McCain closed her eyes, Monsignor Monroy placed his hand on the Senator’s head for a long moment, blessing him."
"The evil championed by Obama must be defeated by those who, despite a severely flawed philosophy, are nevertheless running on a pro-life, pro-family and pro-God ticket. That’s a victory the children of the whole world need to see."
"Bottom line? It’s a mortal sin to vote for Obama. According to St. Thomas, it’s no sin at all to vote for McCain. Given the stakes, shouldn’t we hold the nose and pull the lever for the ticket that could send Obama and his pro-abortion death squads packing? That’s how I see it, and I can only pray that it’s how God sees it, as well!"
