Perhaps believing in the total Sovereignty of God and Predestination helps. But right now, I don't have much evidence for those (I'm still a relatively good Catholic) but I do have overwhelming evidence for the Total Depravity of the American Voter.
Or rather, at least 99% of them.
98% of American Catholics.
50% of which voted for Bush, er, Obama.
48% of which voted for Bush, er, Romney.
Which means 98% of American Catholics voted AGAINST CHRIST and for INTRINSIC EVIL.
How do you contemplate that and NOT be tempted to suicide? Right now,it is obligation and duty alone keeping me in line.
