Planned Parenthood emboldened by election results

Planned Parenthood posted a new banner following last night’s Obama victory. Obama is pictured victorious and waving to a cheering crowd.

As the avowed enemy of Christ’s Church takes his place on the throne of Baal, we weep. Persecution like the Church in America has never known is coming.

Planned Parenthood played a central role in Obama’s first presidential term and in the framing of Obamacare, and dominated this presidential campaign. These are the days that Christ prophesied on his way to Calvary, when people will say,

“Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed.”

At that time people will say to the mountains, “Fall upon us!” and to the hills, “Cover us! for if these things are done when the wood is green what will happen when it is dry?”

I truly believe if the people who elected Obama to another term had an inkling about what they have done, they would ask the mountains to fall on them and the hills to cover them.

What does this victory mean for Planned Parenthood? It means it operates its abortion business with all the money it could ever dream of, because Obama has already proven that if anyone tries to defund his she-devils, he will step in and fund them directly. It means it will have virtually unlimited funds to buy its way into school districts and community organizations so that it can continue to recruit and corrupt our children from the youngest ages. It means security for abortion on demand as the law of our land, as Obama is poised to appoint more Supreme Court justices who will make sure that Roe v. Wade will not be overturned.

It means that the abortion giant rises this morning, emboldened beyond anyone’s wildest imagination, drunk on its victory and roaring with a newfound level of aggression to devour our children and lash out in a wholehearted attempt to destroy the Catholic Church.

And that means that we have to stand more firmly than ever, planted in prayer and sacrificial love, willing to lay down our very lives for our faith and for the little ones who will lose their lifeblood because of the triumph of evil over good. It means that we will appeal to our Church leaders to lead as we never have before, and to lay their lives on the line for us and with us.

It means that we will refuse to comply with government mandates that spit in the face of our faith.

And it means that we will stand and fight until we win this battle to dethrone evil incarnate, Planned Parenthood—that obscene idol that sits at the right hand of Obama.

In the words of St. Patrick:

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In service of archangels,
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In preachings of the apostles,
In faiths of confessors,
In innocence of virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.

I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
From snares of the devil,
From temptations of vices,
From every one who desires me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and evil,
Against every cruel merciless power that opposes my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.

Christ shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that reward may come to me in abundance.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

St. Patrick (ca. 377)
