In light of the results of the recent elections on November 6th, 2012 in which millions of Americans voted for leaders who approve of infanticide and the snuffing out of life, seeing so many vibrant youth participating in this cause that is vital to the health of our nation, indeed gives rise to hope that indeed one day America will heed Christ’s call and return to Him.

Conservatives Gather to Protest HHS Mandate at Angels Stadium


Hundreds of conservative Christians, both Catholic and Protestant gathered under the halo of the “BIg A” in the Angels Stadium Parking lot in Anaheim, CA in order to protest against the violation of religious freedom that has occurred due to the HHS mandate portion of the Affordable Healthcare Act that has been implemented by the Obama Administration.  According to Aileen Blachowski at United for Religious Freedom, the HHS mandate forces all employers, including religious schools and hospitals, to provide free surgical sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, regardless of religious or moral convictions.  Among the many speakers present were Gil Mertz, Family Research Council Director of Regional Development for the Western region

of the United States, former Miss America 2001 and Elementary School Teacher Angela Barraquio Grey, popular Catholic radio evangelist Jesse Romero; Doug Sherman, Chairman of the Catholic Radio Association; Marian Jones (Daughter of Hating Breitbart Producer Jason Jones), Project Coordinator for the Glendale, CA based pro-life organization, I Am Whole Life, and Rabbi Isaac Jeret.

Mrs. Angela Baroquio Grey, indeed is doing something for children in the years after the wonderful gift of life has been allowed to spring out of the womb. She is a  former K-3 Physical Educator/Athletic Director now resides in Southern CA, and is continuing her career as a motivational speaker, TV Host, and Emcee. In 2001, she founded the Angela Perez Baraquio Education Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization in Hawaii, which celebrates and supports students and teachers who exemplify character in their communities. Angela has taught in Catholic school for five years and hopes to teach at the university level in the future. When asked about religious freedom within the classroom she said, “I’m very glad that I was able to teach in a Catholic school where expression of religious freedom was never that much of an issue.”  She also added though, “Any time I taught in the classroom, I just tried to imagine that the student’s parents were sitting in the back of the room.  If I would feel comfortable saying to them what I am saying to their children, then it would probably be OK for me to say. Doing what God tells us to do is important, but We should also use wisdom and discernment about discussing religious and moral issues within the classroom.”

One of the highlights of the rally included musical poetry by Chantel Tabbada and Cristina Ballestero called the Victory is Won.

The powerful prose by Chentel coupled with the angelic notes of Cristina  sent a clear message that freedom does indeed reign in this place.  The first stanza of poetry begins

Check 1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a spiritual warfare

Don’t you dare think fast but think twice

Because this election just might be the last one

Some might even be called to martyrdom

And if so, then so be it

See it’s not about who wins

Because the victory is won
