Pat Buchanan on the Church Militant

Read Pat's stirring article "Is the Church Militant Back?"  at Human Events, and see if you, like me, find yourself cheering at the end. Here is the comment I left: Mr Buchanan is right; for decades of "I'm OK, you're OK" , and "let's just ignore the advance of the Culture of Death" attitude promoted by the American hierarchy, has disheartened those faithful Catholics who see in the True Faith, the solution for the world's problems.
He ends,
" Catholicism is necessarily an adversary faith and culture in an America where a triumphant secularism has captured the heights, from Hollywood to the media, the arts and the academy, and relishes nothing more than insults to and blasphemous mockery of the Church of Rome.

Our new battling bishops may be surprised to find they have a large cheering section among a heretofore silent and sullen faithful who have been desperate to find a few clerical champions. "
My comment was "Finally, the absolute moral bankruptcy of the Obama Administration, aided and abetted by shameful Catholics Pelosi, Kennedy and the CCHD crowd, has caused the braver members of the hierarchy to rise up. Lead on, Archbishop Burke, Bishops Tobin and Wuerhl, the faithful are behind you.

This feels like the Gdansk shipyards, where the joy of fellowship overcame the fear of reprisals from the Communists, and Solidarity, led by our Polish Pope, rode on to victory over Godless Communism. We can do it here in America as well, and reclaim our nation from the Godless. "

Our Lady of Victory, pray for us!"
