Mark Shea, over at Catholic and Enjoying It, just put up a post that I have to share here. He links an article that we all need to read and then ponder.
Please, do NOT read this and despair! We do not, any of us, belong to the R or the D. We follow a Risen Savior.
The truth, even when it hurts, is the first step to changing things. Those of us who want to actually build a culture of life rather than just talk about it, need to know the truth. It will, as Jesus told us, set us free. In this instance, set us free to hold these people accountable.

He’s the only one that’s going to love a slug like you. So learn how to take a punch now and then and get back in line. A man can only put up with so much. (Read more here.)
