Sodom and Gomorrah
Living in Washtenaw County and being a faithful Catholic who is inclined to vote Republican is like being Lot living in Sodom and Gomorrah. It feels so overwhelming, sometimes, realizing so many people are determined to live in opposition to clearly spoken truths about life and morality. A visiting angel would have a hard time getting any ears to listen from people who are set on this treacherous path. And yet I feel that my place is here. We who stand here, defending truth and morality are those few that Abraham interceded for to God. We are the ones who, through prayer and action, can stay the hand of God's judgment. For the sake of the ten, he will not destroy the city. But we must do our part: speak up, act, and intercede in prayer as well. If we obey, we will be safe--and perhaps a few may flee the city with us when we receive those marching orders. Until then, stand fast with the whole armor of God.
