Flags are flying at half staff
The majority of Americans favor legal abortion. That's the status quo.
Almost half of marriages end in divorce. That's the status quo.
Most Americans are not Catholic. That's a fact.
The government is secular. Its power & authority are not derived from God, but from the consent of the governed, the people.
The people are sovereign, not the government.
Of course, now, the government is deriving more and more of its power from the elites & corporations.
God-like entities, don't you think?-- in their capacity to manipulate the world & people. You're fired tomorrow, the people who ordered you so feel powerful.
Your house is being foreclosed, those who do the work must feel like God, and the fat cats who will own your house and so many more like it are feeling like God for sure.
Money and position really tend to make one feel close to God. I'm sure Antonin Scalia will confirm this statement.
Power provides the avenue for the complete expression of pride, the complete surrender of the spirit to arrogance.
