In probably the strongest language any Cardinal has ever used against any prominent U.S. politician, Cardinal Stafford called Barack Hussein Obama "apocalyptic" and noted that he campaigned on an "extremist anti-life platform."
Cardinal Stafford also issued these words of warning:
“For the next few years, Gethsemane will not be marginal. We will know that garden. On November 4, 2008, America suffered a cultural earthquake.”Cardinal Stafford said we will shed “hot, angry tears of betrayal.”
The Cardinal also said that “If 1968 [the year so many in the U.S. hierarchy and clergy disobeyed Pope Paul VI and Humanae Vitae] was the year of America’s ‘suicide attempt,’ 2008 is the year of America’s exhaustion."
Don't look now, but when a Cardinal at the Vatican says we Catholics are going to be under an apocalyptic extremist and weeping tears of betrayal with Jesus during His Agony in the Garden, that is serious talk. It is a prophetic warning for you and me.
Compare these words of Cardinal Stafford to those of Cardinal Roger Mahony in his letter of congratulations to Obama: "All people of good will from coast to coast will want to work with you..." Cardinal Mahony also asked God's blessings on pro-abortion Obama's administration!
As the saying goes, "Can you spot the difference?"
