And this commandment we have from Him, that he who loves God should love his brother also.
– 1 John 4:21
All of the sudden the secular humanist press has discovered that Protestants are not Catholic – as if this is news!
Hello? Martin Luther, remember him? Anybody home?
Amazing how humanists care nothing about religion unless they can use it to justify one of their "human rights" campaigns. Homosexuals suddenly wanting the blessing of the Church for their orgies comes to mind.
Suddenly, the secular humanists are the latest and greatest defenders of the papacy against the attacks of the Lutherans. So why do they even care?
This is probably just a coincidence, but Michele Bachmann used to be a Lutheran. And also coincidentally the secular press is in full smear mode against Bachmann who is emerging as the likely Republican candidate for President. And Michele is outspoken about her Christian faith which has humanists so scared and confused that they are looking to their Ouija boards for answers.
When did being a mainstream Protestant even become an issue in American politics? When that Protestant actually takes her faith seriously and formulates her political campaign on Christian principles.
If Michele were a faithful Catholic, then we would be warned about her allegiance to the Pope. That's always been standard procedure for the secular press. Now it seems like any Christian presidential candidate is going to come under attack from the secular press one way or the other.
What's really happening here is that Obama and the Democrats are in serious trouble with Catholic voters. The Democrats undying support of abortion and "homosexual marriage" have alienated Catholics who normally support them on social justice policies.
If the Bachmann campaign is able to sway Catholic voters to support her, then the Democrats could be in big trouble in 2012. And they know it. Desperate times call for desperate measures – in this case mud slinging and name calling.
Well, body of Christ, don't fall victim of the old divide-and-conquer strategy. Haven't we been talking about ecumenism all these years? Support your fellow Christians. Build bridges. Let's use this as an opportunity to gather the flock.

What next? Investigative reports on the question, "Is the Pope Catholic?" Wait, wait don't tell me. I think I know this one.
St. Paul the Apostle, you preached the Word to Jew and Gentile, Greek and Roman; you fought against divisions in the early Church. Pray for us.
