Washington, DC -- A leading pro-life Catholic is feuding with supporters of Barack Obama who claim to be Catholic but join the candidate in violating the Church's teachings by strongly supporting abortion and embryonic stem cell research. Catholic League President Bill Donahue says true Catholics would oppose Obama.
Donahue began the exchange last week by issuing a press release calling on Obama to dissolve his National Advisory Council because the members of the panel and pro-abortion.

Senator Bob Casey Jr. is a leading supporter of Obama and is suppose to be Pro Life. Bishop James Clifford Timlin of the Scranton Diocese is suppordter of Casey Jr. who is a prominent Catholic.
He not only wasted his time back earlier this year when he was messing with the Republicans, he also lost whatever credentials he had with Conservatives.
He's got a lot of time to spend in political purgatory before he can ever be trusted.
(And I do hope he's given up cruising those homosexual websites where he picked up that garbage he was tossing at several of the candidates. That was so tawdry and ignorant of him.)
Catholic Ping Please.
Obama’s fake “Catholics” are all fiercely anti-Catholic.
For pro-aborts of B. Hussein’s ilk, it’s about as “profound” a moral challenge as choosing the next American Idol.
You just can't let one opportunity to pass by without some snide remark or slam.
You continually bear false witness against Catholics.
from your response it sounds like you have taken offense because you are a homosexual - I have no doubt that you probably are.
Try to find a better spokesman next time.
If Donahue didn’t criticize the GOP for embracing anti-Catholic bigots, then he would have lost his whatever credentials he had with Catholics.
Hardly ~ for many Catholics it’s only the presence of Protestants that reminds them what being a Catholic is all about. If you didn’t already have us you’d have to invent us.
Salvation is back on duty with the Catholic ping list.
Very clever reposte.
All I need to know that I’m a practicing Catholic is my faith.
No, that’s what the Jews are for, we just laugh at protestants and just laugh at their infantile theology, lame “mega”-churches and slick snake oil salesmen.
Sorry jack, the Catholics invented the concept. And snake oil salesmen? Isn't that what the Kennedy family made their living on?
Theologically speaking I belong to a church that differs from the RCs in only one major respect ~ we don't have an hierarchy. Otherwise I know that at any particular moment there's a perpetual novena taking place in my non-Catholic church ~ which is probably not the case with St. Bernadette's to the West and St Francis to the East.
Please don't assume more than can be demonstrated.
Donohue came up with critiques of candidates that sourced back to some homosexual websites. I did the search on that rather nasty piece of business and found that with virtually 100% weblog coverage, those stories had but a single source ~ I'm still p.o.ed at Donohue for having tossed stuff like that around with abandon BEFORE verifying the sources.
He's got some broken glass to crawl through nekkid Fur Shur.
Good on you. Now, go convert the rest of ‘em. Makes my job much easier!
Our Mega-Churches actually look nice and are built to last, protestant mega-churches are nothing more than a suburban office park.
That’s another thing about you people, always taking the fun out of life. The Protestants were the driving force for Prohibition. Think about it, the best places to visit in Europe are all Catholic Countries. Spain, Portugal, and Italy.
As someone from PA, I will say that Casey Jr. says he's pro-life when he thinks it will benefit him, but unlike his father, he does not defend life.
is it your being homosesxual that makes you intolerant of Catholics or is there some other thing going on with you?
Now I know his gray haired old mom would be upset if she were to even be given to suspect that her sonny boy was looking into those places, but I had to do it for the sake of the Conservative movement.
You know that.
