Obama Presidency Our Gethsemane

During his lecture this past Thursday at Catholic University of America, His Eminence James Francis Cardinal Stafford noted that Barack Obama is an "aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic" man who campaigned on an "extremist anti-life platform."

Stafford, a high ranking American at the Vatican, drew a parallel between Christ's Passion and what American will face during the Obama presidency.

"For the next few years, Gethsemane will not be marginal. We will know that garden. On November 4, 2008, America suffered a cultural earthquake."

In his estimation, we have been dealt a future of "hot, angry tears of betrayal" akin to those experienced by "Jesus, sick because of love."
