I was born in Maryland so I always sigh when I see this once Catholic state sink another fathom into the abyss of immorality. The House signed a "gay marriage" bill last week and the senate is expected to follow with "Catholic" mayor O'Malley hot to sign it the minute it hits his desk. What should immediately happen after that, of course, is for Cardinal O'Brien to issue an interdict banning O'Malley from Communion until he publicly repents. One would hope the Cardinal has been in communication with the mayor informing him of the serious consequences of his actions should he sign such an immoral bill. But then Democrats in Mary's Land, Catholic or no, are notorious for dissing Almighty God in favor of the latest experiment in social depravity. What are the consequences of moral depravity? Ultimately violence. I have no doubt that we are on the road to a global war unless we imitate the people of Nineveh and put on sackcloth and ashes and repent. Pray for peace this Lent and repent. Changing the world begins with the personal conversion of each one of us. Pray, fast, and give alms -- but make your almsgiving count. Skip CCHD, Catholic Relief Services, and Catholic Charities (no rice bowl for my family). They are all in bed with the feds and have sold their souls to Mammon.
