Obama and the Apocalypse

Via Andrew Sullivan I see an American Cardinal, James Francis Cardinal Stafford doesn't think too highly of Barack Obama's election as President, calling Obama "aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic."

Stafford was speaking at the Catholic University of America. From the student paper:

“For the next few years, Gethsemane will not be marginal. We will know that garden,” Stafford said, comparing America’s future with Obama as president to Jesus’ agony in the garden. “On November 4, 2008, America suffered a cultural earthquake.”

Cardinal Stafford said Catholics must deal with the “hot, angry tears of betrayal” by beginning a new sentiment where one is “with Jesus, sick because of love.”
