This may be what ends up saving that country and ours as well. Seems that when things get really bad – like they are in VEN – people return to God. Funny, that.

Buffeted by political and humanitarian crises, one of Latin America’s least religious countries is turning to faith. As the political stalemate between President Nicolás Maduro and opposition leader Juan Guaidó grinds into another month, and shortages of electricity, food and water reduce life to a daily struggle to survive, leaders across religious traditions are reporting a flood of worshippers, lapsed and new, searching for comfort and answers.

“All my masses are full, which has never happened before,” said the Rev. Jesús Godoy, a Catholic priest at the Good Shepherd parish in the Chacao district of Caracas. He says he’s seeing more than 2,000 people each weekend.

“They beg for help,” Godoy said. “They want God to give them the tools to live in crisis.”

This will inevitably happen in pagan Amerika, a reset to sanity and Christ. A crippling depression, a war or two, and a few years of horrific suffering should be all it takes. Whatever it takes, Amerikans have earned it.
