“Let’s not be naïve, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”

Plain spoken and true. The Holy Spirit seems to still be working in the Church, so we must not yet be in the End Times!
Although not a Catholic, but as an Evangelical Christian and a conservative Republican, the Pope speaks to me in ways that my own church often fails to do. The Pope seems to be the right Pope for these troubled times when there is an attempt to dismiss moral issues as being old fashioned and not relevant to this day and age.
