For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Laura Ingraham Reminds Us To Be Vigilant

While Laura Ingraham is on vacation(????) she’s sending out E-Blasts. The following excerpt is the reason why I haven’t officially endorsed John McCain and put a banner supporting him on my blog. I can barely handle his green policy only because I have faith that a Republican minority will stand against the worst of it, but it will be hard to hold back the tide of amnesty.

From Laura:

[MCCAIN'S IMMIGRATION "LESSON": If you thought John McCain had learned from his initial amnesty push with Ted Kennedy, you're wrong. We took note back in January when, appearing on Meet the Press, he reflected on the immigration reform implosion, saying: "The lesson is they want the borders secured first." (Note the odious use of "they," rather than, say, "Americans.")

So, lesson learned? Keep dreaming. National Review's Jim Geraghty reports that in a weekend conference call with reporters, campaign manager Rick Davis downplayed concerns that this fanfare for amnesty is politically damaging, claiming it was actually a positive that "may suit to fit him in a general election."

Really. Either Team McCain thinks the leadership of La Raza is a representative sample of the American populace, or he hasn't learned a damn thing about why his amnesty-for-all bill nearly toppled his political career. Sad to say, I'm not sure which it is.]
