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

Some Tea Parties Across The Country...

Although I was unable to attend the many tea parties going on yesterday due to my continued but precarious employment, I attended all of them in spirit.  Some online friends of mine were able to take part in person and report on the events:

Urban Infidel attended one last night in Manhattan which went "overall, well."  Though there was a "troll" or two who tried to disrupt the events (with no luck), a good time was had by all, including Sirius-XM radio host Andrew Wilkow.  Check out Urban's blog HERE for all of her pictures and videos of the event.

Donald Douglas at American Power attended two of them yesterday in Irving and Santa Ana, CA.  He has several photos of the tea parties there, one of which I snagged for this post (see above left).

In Fayetteville, AR, Freeman Hunt was on hand to photo-document the events, and estimates the crowd at around 1,200.  

Robert Stacy McCain and blog sidekick, Smitty, of The Other McCain were on hand at The Mall in Washington D.C. (where I would most likely have been had I not been working) and took several pictures and video of the events, including a few of SNL alum, Victoria Jackson.  I'm turning green with envy here.

If you attended a tea party yesterday and took pictures, send me a link!
