Illinois Primary Election Day
edit_button

Today is the Primary Election in Illinois, and if you are here go out and vote! We, as Americans, have the great privilege to vote. Your vote makes a difference especially in local elections!

I also ask you to remember the unborn and pro-life issues as you vote. Please visit the Illinois Citizens for Life for the rankings of Illinois candidates according to pro-life issues. Please vote for the pro-life candidates and stand up for life. Many people don't know this, but it is considered a sin to vote for a pro-abortion candidate knowingly.

View the Illinois Citizens for Life's Candidate Information List (.pdf file)

Here are the candidates ranked Fully pro life:

Governor:
Bill Brady (R)
Jim Oberweis (R)

Lt. Governor:
Steven J. Rauschenberger (R)
Sandy Wegman (R)
Joe Birkett (R)

Attorney General:
None but Lisa Madigan (D) is ranked totally opposed to pro-life issues. I'd vote for the other candidate

Secretaty of State:
Dan Rutherford (R)

Comptroller:
Carole Pankau (R)

Treaurer:
None are ranked well but Paul L Mangieri (D) is pro-life, I believe

Please say this prayer that the pro-life candidates will win.

O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, at this most critical time, we entrust the United States of America to your loving care. Most Holy Mother, we beg you to reclaim this land for the glory of your Son. Overwhelmed with the burden of the sins of our nation, we cry to you from the depths of our hearts and seek refuge in your motherly protection. Look down with mercy upon us and touch the hearts of our people. Open our minds to the great worth of human life and to the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Free us from the falsehoods that lead to the evil of abortion and threaten the sanctity of family life. Grant our country the wisdom to proclaim that God’s law is the foundation on which this nation was founded, and that He alone is the True Source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. O Merciful Mother, give us the courage to reject the culture of death and the strength to build a new Culture of Life.

Since this is just a blog post, are you not free
to suggest who the pro-life candidates might
be?

Undoubtedly, many will have no idea and would
appreciate your input.

To Whom It May Concern:

When you watch films of the Nazi attrocities, people are often moved to tears. People are appalled, because they see the horro that was the Nazi death camps. People do not see the horros of abortion, and that's how satan was able to sweep it under the rug and hid this horendous crime.

I think that we need to get the horible truth out in the open. I am a photographer by trade, and if there is anyone you know who can get me access to an abortion clinick, or even an artist who can make a rendefing of what abortion is truely like, I would appreciate it.

WE, THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, have EXCEEDED the Nazies of Germany! It's time to lose the "wishy washy" attitude of "I can't afford to be a 'one issue guy.'

I want to do something.

Mike
