This post addresses the broader spectrum of why America could easily fall through the cracks without Divine Intervention.
First, I found this Youtube video on the damning statistics that have took place ever since the Supreme Court struck down school prayer in Engel v. Vitale in 1962:
Secondly, in the Roman Catholic Church, the Second Vatican Council began in 1962. The 1962 Missal is the current Tridentine missal, which was used during the Council. (With the exception of adding St. Joseph's name in the Canon and new saints to the calendar, it is basically the same Missal originally issued by Pope St. Pius V.)
After watching the video, you can see the pathetic single mother rates, STDs, violent crime, and so forth. The Catholic Church started to go downhill in 1969, when the Novus Ordo Missae was published.
Today, most baptized Catholics don't go to Mass, don't go to Confession, deny the Real Presence, abort, divorce, and contracept at more rapid paces than their non-Catholic counterparts. During the 1960's and '70's, many Catholic dioceses and mainstream religious orders ordained gay-positive clergy and changed the liturgy to reflect their heretical beliefs. They are chiefly responsible for getting Obama elected and for the destruction of Holy Mother Church in the United States.
Our public schools have become one of the most dangerous places for our children to be, especially every time we hear about school violence. If God had a more of a presence in our public schools, chances are this immorality would not happen.
Until Our Lady's request at Fatima is fulfilled, there will be no Traditional Latin Mass restored at every parish, no overturning Engel and Roe v. Wade, no repentance of homosexuals, and no world peace.
Until Our Lady's request at Fatima is fulfilled, there will still be American schoolchildren sitting down and not putting their hands over their hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance, the National Anthem, the moment of silence, Taps, at parades, and at the flagpoles.
If Our Lady's request is fulfilled, it will be sure for certain that the United States of America will actually live up to its billing: a nation under God.
