I’ve just read the beautiful resources offered on the thread about Our Lady of Guadalupe. What a powerful sign of the Grace of God when Our Lady appeared to Juan Diego. A virtually pagan country converted to Christ by the intercession of the Virgin Mary!
This thread will probably offend our Hispanic friends because I know how devoted they are to this icon of Mexico. I know how thankful they are for their Catholic conversion.
However, let’s face the reality: Catholic voting statistics show that American citizens of Catholic/Hispanic origin, in the majority, vote for pro-abort political candidates !!! Most Hispanic legislators, including Loretta Sanchez of California, are radically pro-abort??? Illinois has several pro-abort Hispanic legislators.
The Hispanics, like Black Americans, register as Democrats and vote for Democrat pro-abort candidates. !!! They, like Blacks, are attracted to a “socialist/entitlement Party” for what they perceive that Party will give them, not for that Party’s moral ideology. I understand that even illegal Hispanic people are willing to illegally vote the Democratic ticket - like in California.
I just can’t square this apparent hypocrisy in my mind !!!
Why would a people so outwardly devoted to Our Lady of Guadalupe, who wears the sign, a black sash, as a symbol of her Divine Maternity - egregiously betray the very
essence of who Our Lady is and what she stands for? Why would they betray The Christ, who is co-creator with all mankind, and allow His Creation to be murdered in cold blood in the womb by supporting pro-abort politicians???
How can a people separate their devotion to Our Lady of Gudalupe and betray her very person in the voting booth?
Can someone give me a clear answer?
