A new political group that claims to be a Christian organization has endorsed pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama. The Matthew 25 Network plans to run ads for Obama on Christian radio stations and in newspapers and magazines that appeal to Christians. The object is to try to pry away evangelical voters from supporting John McCain, who has already received the endorsement of a number of evangelical and Catholic groups and leaders.
Mara Vanderslice, the head of the political action committee, told the Wall St. Journal the group plans to spend $500,000 in advertising for Obama between now and the November elections.
Ads will appear in publications like the National Catholic Reporter and Relevant Magazine and a one-minute radio ad will play on Christian stations in battleground states like Ohio, Michigan, and Colorado. The radio ad campaign will eventually expand to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Missouri, and North Carolina. “You know it’s an election year when certain people start grabbing headlines by attacking the faith of presidential candidates, with all these stones being cast at Barack Obama it can be hard to know what to believe,” the ad says. It includes a clip of an Obama speech where the candidate says “I think we make a mistake when we fail to acknowledge the role of faith in people’s lives.” The group is named after the Bible verse that quotes Jesus saying, “I tell you the truth, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
However, the group appears uninterested in protecting the “least of these” — unborn children — and one advocate for the organization admitted to the Journal that he hopes to move the debate away from abortion.
Bart Campolo, an urban minister, said he’s “uncomfortable” with evangelicals marching in “lock-step” with the Republican Party because of its pro-life candidates for president. He said the Matthew 25 Network is trying to move evangelical voters away from pro-life issues. “What I’m excited about at this stage of the game, it seems like the evangelical community is waking up to the deeper and broader approach,” he said, according to the newspaper.
Proving its pro-abortion credentials, two leading abortion advocates in Congress, Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina, are involved in the group. DeLauro is a former staff member for NARAL, a leading pro-abortion group that, like Obama, supports unlimited abortions paid for at taxpayer expense and vigorously opposed the partial-birth abortion ban.
They are not Christians but liberation theologians.
Eichmann spoke Hebrew. At least, he made that claim at his trial.
If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.
In the 1950’s Mao Tse-dong signalled a slight opening of Communist China. He announced the “hundred flowers campaign” encouraging disgruntled intellectuals and non-communists to speak up and voice their grievances.
When the most vocal ones raised their voices, they were thus found out and arrested.
I see a similar Communist strategy here - use the Christians to defeat the Christians.
I don’t think a person can be pro-abort and a Christian at the same time.
This has been part of their scampaign strategy since losing in 2004.
