Via Creative Minority Report, Rep. Patrick Kennedy said about the election last night.
“It’s like in Roman times, they’d be trotted out to the coliseum and the lions would be brought out,” Kennedy said Tuesday night. “I mean, they’re wanting blood and they’re not getting it so they want to protest.”
Don’t worry Mr. Kennedy, it was faithful Catholics who were fed to the Lions. Ones actually obedient to their bishops (what a concept!). The Pagans who had no problems with worshipping Caesar and those who would leave infants outside to die of exposure were not fed to the Lions. Your Pagan sensibilities will prevent such a fate.
His statement is quite a contrast to me after just reading all the letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch who really was eaten by lions. Yet on his way to his martyrdom did not whine about it but saw his bones as wheat for the lions and his sanctification and way to Jesus.
Besides it is Kennedy’s side that want blood and will protest until taxpayers pay personally for the blood of the unborn.
