American Lepanto

Many Americans, and probably non-Americans around the world, arose this morning expecting to wake up to the news that Hilary Clinton has been elected to be the first woman President of the United States. It was a forgone conclusion – preordained by the irresistible onslaught of the culture of death, made attractive by the likelihood of a female running the White House.

Instead, they woke up, turned on the news and descended into the valley of shock – some in despair, some in anger, some in relief. For some, just plain numbness had set in.

This wasn’t supposed to happen. The forces of culture were in command and the tidal wave of anti-Catholic/Christian rage was carrying the the fleet of destruction to it’s “final” victory over the forces of life and religious liberty in the united States of America. The final nail in the coffin of ancient superstition, slavery of guilt and rule by old men over the lives of women victims around the world would finally be driven, guaranteeing that the moral free-for-all that has become the hallmark of post Christian culture will be safeguarded forever.

Here’s part of what was about to become of America…

Refer to Clinton’s speech at the Women of the World summit:

Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper. Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.

This quote is taken from a Snopes article stating that she said it, but it was taken out of context.

Gone are all references to education, domestic violence, and the mortality rate of women in childbirth — not to mention the international scope of the subject matter — so what remains could be misrepresented as a direct threat to pro-life Christians in America. That was clearly not the original import of the passage.

I’m sorry, you can put all of the context you want in there, but the statement that “religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” seems pretty clear. It translates to “Catholic Church, you will change your teaching to align with what we say is right. Or else…”

Combine that with the emails from her staff stating that infiltration of the Catholic Church with the intention of changing Catholic teaching. Here’s a sample:


Together with the attempts to force Catholic institutions (as well as other organizations and people) that have moral objections to providing access to services which go against their consciences and beliefs, and this adds up to a direct attack on religious liberty as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

And there is the question of constitutional rights for the unborn and when the killing of that child should be made illegal:

And, of course, there is the demand that the tax payer pay for abortions by revoking the Hyde Amendment. And the proudest moment of Planned Parenthood CEO, Cecile Richard, being the forcing of Christians to pay for abortion

All of these things, and more, were intended to come into full force against the Church, as well as other Christian assemblies and even non-religious  entities which object to attack on these moral principles.

(And don’t fall for the lie that Abortions make up only 3% of the “services” Planned Parenthood. Click here for an explanation of how they come up with that figure.

These attacks were about to be guaranteed to persist with the new Clinton administration, with the intention of forcing compliance or removing the targets from the scene altogether.

She promised them.

And it all came to a jarring halt a little after 3:00 AM Wednesday, November 9, 2016.

What happened?

I think it can be explained in four words:

The Battle of Lapanto.


The same tactic was applied here in the United States over the past several weeks, indeed over the past many months. And during the past week, or so, applied continuously thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of times. And not just in the US, around the world.

Our weapon of choice. With a fifty round clip. And we know how to use it.

And it worked again.

One Response to American Lepanto

    Excellent post!!!! Thank you so much for doing this. You know when I woke up and found out how the election went, (though I did try to stay up) I went on my knees, cried, and thanked God.

    I thanked Him for two things. For answering my prayers that the millions of aborted babies and those in Bengahzi and their families, finally had some sort of justice. It really did bring me to tears.

    This election was not about me or what I wanted. It was about those two things alone. God heard my cries and my appeals. I do not beleive I have ever felt as close to God as I did at that moment. Thanks again and God Bless, SR
