“After last night I am close to despair. There are so many now who will be out of the scope of concern in policy and practice. More time will be wasted trying to take new health insurance from those newly covered. Keystone will probably be approved to the detriment of the land, creatures and people from whom it will be taken. National parks and sanctuaries will be in danger. Safety nets will be cut to pay back the money poured into this election. Any new Supreme Court justices will be anti Roe v Wade and pro Citizen's United. Global climate change is now in the hands of people don't believe in science and creationism will be supported in science classrooms.... These are the platforms that our newly elected politicians won on. I am so disappointed that we are the self elevating, it's all about me, to Hell with the poor nation owned by money.
Here is Iowa we now have Steve King and Joni Ernst in Washington.
As John Steward said, last night money won. Ideas lost.
As advocates for the least among us we will need to be vigilant and even more counter cultural. Kyrie eleison.”

Anybody else have problems with this ELCA pastor's lament?
