EWTN Catholic Q&A
RE unanswered prayers for the election
Question from Joseph Kelley on 11-21-2012:

We need to learn from the Ninevites. Repent and do penance before praying. We need to repent of contraception, divorce, abortion, and above all for ignoring Humanae Vitae for 44 years. U

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 11-21-2012:

Prayer and penance. But the entire city of Nineveh repented. It appears that more than half this country vote for wicked candidates and immoral causes. That leaves me with less hope for America than Ninevah.
