I’m not sure that’s true. I have enormous respect for Doug Kmiec, who is a friend and fellow parishoner at Our Lady of Malibu. He is an extremely intelligent, experienced, thoughtful man who attends daily Mass. He does support Obama, which baffles me.
what is his explanation to his friends for this insanity? laura and wendy on the show today count themselves as friends and colleagues of Doug’s, and he could not answer them in any meaningful way. they were beyond perplexed. i know of this man and what he has believed and stood for in the past, even as recently as this past spring when he was an advisor to Mitt Romney for judicial appointments, along with Wendy Long. What can possibly explain his turn to lunacy?
Doug sounded like he was programed and someone wound him up when he was on Laura’s this morning.
When Laura could get a word in, and ask him a question, he just went in circles.
I guess he doesn’t have a problem with Obama’s Marxist friends and supporters not to mention Obama’s Marxist views.
Sometimes you cannot see the forest for the trees.
His reasoning lacks logic. Here's a logical breakdown of his resaoning:
He also is a global warming True Believer, cites "racially segregated public schools that don't teach" (then goes on to endorse the Party responsible for the academic irresponsibility), talks about us as "a nation of immigrants that won't welcome any more of them." (look around you and tell me we don't welcome PLENTY of immigrants).
But what galls me is the accusation that Catholics don't give a damn about mothers. He indicates this in his litany against us:
with the Catholic mind so totally closed to alternative means to reduce abortion, it then often remains closed to every aspect of the social justice teaching of the Catholic tradition whether it be providing a living wage, decent shelter, adequate prenatal care or the preservation of the created environment.
as if charity is crap and only Government redistribution counts as "caring".
Yep. He's a socialist.
Many leftist theologians, or in fact communists and Muslim imams (except the daily-mass thing), are intelligent, experienced, and thoughtful persons.
