The Pope doesn't mince words, does he?
Hasn’t this been the case for 35 years?
What’s going to be different this time? All orthodox Catholics have already made the move.
“The Pope doesn’t mince words, does he?”
No, he doesn’t. Thank God!

The Church is kind of stuck — having declared Iraq to not be a just war, to vote for either candidate with a chance of winning is to advance one or the other grave sin.

Good! Now why in the heck isn’t there a Jewish-Obama problem? I’ll NEVER understand why Jews prefer Dems over the GOP... NEVER!!! Are they just stuck on stupid?

Sad thing is that many of the Catholic’s in this country will vote for him. Not the faith full ones, but the the Christmas/Easter cultural ones for sure.

Like this means squat. If even 80% of RCs took their religion seriously there would never be a rat prez. again.

"As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable. Among these the following emerge clearly today: the protection of life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death; recognition and promotion of the natural structure of the family as a union between one man and one woman based on marriage
; and the protection of the rights of parents to educate their children>
If she is basing her claim that Catholics cannot vote for a candidate that supports abortion on this, then it looks like she can't vote for a candidate who is also pro-capital punishment or pro-divorce.
Our Holy Father John Paul II has stated that abortion and euthanasia are crimes which no human law can claim to legitimize. There is no obligation in conscience to obey such laws; instead there is a grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law, or vote for it.” (The Gospel of Life, no. 73)

Translation......Catholics in no way can vote for Obama. He is pro-abortion. Pro-baby killing. Pro-Planned Parenthood.
McCain is pro-life. Will not kill the babies. All Catholics should vote for him. I believe he will come around on the embryonic stem-cell research and not move it forward.
