Election Night Craziness

From a friend:

We went down to Election Central in San Diego on Tuesday night and things got a little "lively", especially with regard to Props 4 and 8.

My son and his friend got in the thick of things. They stood proudly and loudly supported life and traditional marriage. At one point, it got a little too intense for this mother's heart, so I went over to my son and said, 'Hey, let's go. Let's find where dad is.' He replied, 'Hey, it's ok mom. Remember, I play football.' Crusaders!

Later, Bishop Cordileone and Fr. Saroki came into the hall and I felt peace and protection. Thank you to our Bishop and the priests who courageously led us during this campaign!

Around 10 p.m., a large number of teens and young adults came in holding signs that read, 'Keep our teens safe. No on Prop 4'. Keep teens safe? How so? I asked an older woman who appeared to be "in charge" of the group of teens, how does this keep teens safe. She replied, 'I don't have kids. I really don't know and I don't care'.

God help us.
