Mandeville, LA – Mike Church‘s daily Pile of Prep, bringing you the latest from Election Day 2014! Read along with Mike’s historical viewpoint to help make sense of it all plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. “For those of us who love life and the sacredness of every single person, there is no race, religion, gender, or sexual preference. There is only life. What amazes me is that every group—social, cultural, ethnic, sexual—that has faced discrimination is not adamantly pro-life. Eugenics, alive and well under various guises, more often than not attacks those very groups most vulnerable. When the gene is discovered for what makes a person homo or heterosexual, one can bet that that gene will be targeted by many either to change or destroy. Life will become sacred again only when we live out our beliefs and live them in love. Handing the problem to politicians is not only a recipe for disaster, it is moral cowardice.”– Brad Birzer (yes, of the Birzer Effect), “Should The Pro-Life Movement Ditch Politics” (answer=YES)
“Voters” in Colorado and North Dakota declare God is NOT the author of Creation, has no say so in when life begins and cannot say when a human becomes a human, only perverts drunk on the wretched passion of promiscuity get to make that determination
A point of view I have been promoting the last few months is that moral revival cannot and will not come from the ballot box or electing new cadres of Republican “saviors”. It will come when Americans (and the rest of the world’s Christians) ditch the contrivances of the material world for the Kingdom of Heaven. In doing so, pro-lifers will no longer tolerate any sanction, cover or assistance given to a government that funds and condones the murder of the soon to be born. This will make martyrs of many Christians, I am convinced, but oh what happy martyrs for such a Glorious Cause as is devotion to Almighty God’s commandments and the literal instructions given us by Our Lord. Brad Birzer is halfway there in this essay on ditching politics from the pro-life movement at The Imaginative Conservative
Congress has been given the blank check for a brand new war with ISIS with all the Congressional trimmings with Obama’s promise to seek an AUMF on the matter. Will anyone, ANYONE even ask if 1. This is a Just War (no it isn’t) and 2. Even if it met that lofty threshold, would it be prudent for the United States to wage it? Daniel Larison asks the second question
MBD: Michael Brendan Dougherty bemoans the rise of über DeceptiCON Joni Ernst and other Bush-era Republicans who seem to have never heard that the Iraq invasion was a human tragedy of proportions that can only be viewed generationally. They are ready to invade, re-invade and then expand the invade. For those who thought the Big-War hawk brand would go quietly into that good night (MBD was one), watch the last act of Cameron’s Avatar, Steven Lang’s men are the U.S., you can figure out who the Na’vi are.
Are you ready for your endorsement of homosexual marriage? KS and now MS have been informed that since the Pilgrims “marriage has been a fundamental right of ALL citizens”. This brings the tally now to 30 states (28 of which) that have been judicially steamrolled into granting homosexual, and very soon, incestuous “marriages”, then polyamorous, then polygamous then, cross species then… you get the picture. Those that foolishly say “marriage should be left up to the states, now have their anti-federalist cakes to munch on while the remainder of modern Rome burns
Speaking of sacramental marriage, there are hundreds of millions of souls at stake in the perversion of this most holy and sacramental institution becoming but a secular, civil “agreement” between consenting parties. NO ONE in the modern Church and its clergy explains the reasons why this must NOT happen than Bishop Athanasius Schneider. “In fact a Divine commandment, in our case the sixth commandment, the absolute indissolubility of the sacramental marriage, a Divinely established rule, means those in a state of grave sin cannot be admitted to Holy Communion. This is taught by Saint Paul in his letter inspired by the Holy Spirit in 1 Corinthians 11, 27-30, this cannot be put to the vote, just as the Divinity of Christ would never be put to a vote.”
It is legal to steal now thanks to the ballot box. 4 ballot initiatives that increased “minimum wage” were ok’d by “voters” on Tuesday pointing out the logical fallacy that one can OWN private property, capital and revenue being in that specie, when significant portions of it can be taken by a 50% of the population plus 1 vote
The complete rundown of 2014 election results chronicles the GOP rout of the Democrat Party in nearly every state, every office and every initiative
Well “Thcott Brown’s NOT gonn do it”, as the GOP pinup hero of 2010 MA Senate runoff (after Ted Kennedy died) is defeated in New Hampshire by Shaheen
Walter McDougall’s “Promised Land” is a full-length, detailed explanation of the American Civil Religion from inception to it’s current lethal apostolate
WARNING SIGNS OF THE BIG GLOAT ALREADY: Tea Party groups are supposed to be NON partisan I thought yet the largest national group is publicly boasting that “conservatives have taken the Senate”. This is almost identical to the euphoria and misplaced partisanship seen after the 2010 elections that swept Boehner into power.
Rod Dreher blames Rob Maness for Mary Landrieu’s survival, wondering why Rob didn’t drop out “when polls showed he didn’t have a chance”. Well, Rod, he didn’t QUIT because he isn’t a quitter and had a responsibility to execute the wishes of the 202,313 folks who voted for him, the thousands of volunteers and the thousands who donated their scant wealth to his effort, in other words, his HONOR would not let him retire, that’s admirable, Rod, and rare. And in case you’re wondering, Rob is as humble a gentleman as you will meet, read his concession speech, he said what I just said to his supporters.
Patrick J Buchanan: U.S. Voters will vote today but WHAT are they voting for? “But are the American people really voting to send arms to Kiev, to confront Russia in Ukraine, to commit to a forever-war to “degrade and ultimately defeat” the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria? Does the country really want a clash with Iran over its nuclear enrichment program? If so, the GOP should return to Washington and in the lame-duck session authorize Obama to take us to war with the Islamic State.”
TIC: The Soul of Madness has nearly overtaken the American body politic. The pagan hordes puff and snort their hatred of Our Lord, Our Lady and the moral order of Western Civilization under Christendom while demanding we stop public exhortations or more properly referred to as public ejaculations on this order and our commitment to defend it, eyes on eternity, to death.
Libs, seeing their impending demise, looming in front of them tomorrow conclude (correctly) that voting is not all it’s cracked up to be, proving the fallacy of false God elections yet again. 2 years ago the same libs paraded Obama’s re-election as the second coming of Hobbes, 4 years ago it was the first coming of Hobbes. Note the dystopian air running through the NY Times pieces quoted by the writer
Presidential War Powers and for that matter, Presidential King powers, are NOT condoned by the Founders Constitution as Pete Haworth admirably demonstrates at at Nomocracy

If it’s Monday it’s a safe bet that there is a new “Rand Paul has blown it” column written by soemone wishing to either a. promote their POV or b. use Paul as a touchstone to invalidate that POV, well, today is no exception as “Rand Paul’s Moment has Passed”

Has the USA become a nation in a “warmongering mood”? (as Leon Hadar says in “Rand Paul’s Moment has Passed”, Daniel Larison says no because the cost of war with ISIS hasn’t been felt yet
Ross Douthat is rattling the cages of those in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church with his defense of Conservative i.e. un-changing views on the history of teaching that goes back to the Gospels themselves. Apparently Douthat has also been isntructed to (as have I) “get back to bashing Obama.” “I’ll have a final, hopefully interesting but perhaps-less-controversial thought about the synod up later on today, and then the midterms loom, and my commentary here will probably take a turn for the secular, no doubt to some readers great relief.”
TIC: So what is Truth? Truth is that which is eternal and comes from or is influenced pursuant to the Transcendent Triune God. “The Truth shall set you free” is explained herein better than I have previously heard it
I hate being right, Pt 3,279 – Now there are POST BIRTH abortions being advocated for on College Campae across this decaying land of ours. Though the amount of people willing to publicly embrace this ghastly concept is small, they ARE out there and they ARE reading assignments in several universities. Pray to Our Lady to intervene on behalf of the children and to crush the head of this obvious diabolic serpent head

National Organization For Marriage endorses DEMOCRAT in election over SSM promoting, homosexual Republican. This is precisely what I mean the other day when I said I “vote Catholic first, [r]epublican second.” I would be agonizing over this one though and probably abstain because the Dem is abortion friendly.
Christian, Citizen-Soldiers, “gird your loins” because our “land of the free” is rapidly disintegrating into the home of the atheist enslaved. Southern Baptists think they’ll be martyred in public in less than 2 generations. I say it happens in less than 2 decades if not 2 years
TIC’s Frohnen: The American State of the Union: Feckless laws made to bring about the impossible lead to the ruin of nations (there’s that word again!) “When we reduce our goals to an ideological vision of equality like “all of us are equal in our right to government-funded health care” we end up harming real people’s lives and bankrupting our nation.”
Ross Douthat heads into the territory where the pagan hordes live and love to sew the bitter, poisoned fruit of scandal aimed at Catholics in explaining WHY Pope Frances must be resisted in his misguided efforts to alter foundational Church teaching on marriage
