If Biden is pro-abortion, then he certainly isn’t a Catholic. He may have been one growing up, but he isn’t one now.
I think Obama’s votes in the Illinois Senate on this issue has already made it a preeminent issue. That coupled with his remarks on the subject at Saddleback should be played again and again.
The Killer B’s: Biden and Barack
Biden’s pro-choice record is flawless—he has received an 100% rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America for three consecutive years, and his record prior to 2003 is also strongly pro-choice.
Another one of those catholics who thumbs his nose at Catholic teaching.
Archbishop Charles Chaput’s new book “Render unto Caeser” is very clear regarding Catholic responsibility in the voting booth.
Biden has been very clear that his Catholic responsibility is not a priority.
How can he be a "practicing Roman Catholic Christian" and support abortion? True Christians don't support abortions and I didn't think Catholics did either.
One of my biggest disappointments in this election season is the defection of Doug Kmiec to Obamania. Kmiec is a legal scholar with (until now) good conservative credentials, and I used to have a lot of respect for him. He has completely sold out.
"We have Christians of every stripe, Catholic and protestant (Methodists, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Evangelical etc.) who consistently vote for pro-abortion politicians."
The following are my observations:
1) Perhaps they do not believe Psalm 139.
2) Perhaps they do not see that their own liberties, as individual citizens, are placed at risk when the liberty of the child in the womb to live is denied by force.
3) Perhaps they do not really think about the implications of the absurdity that one class of citizens (women) are legally protected in a so-called "right" to choose whether another human being lives or dies by the "hand of force."
4) Perhaps they never considered that the claim of the phrase, "endowed by their Creator," in the Founders' Declaration of Independence actually formed the founding principle underlying our Constitution's protections. That principle was succinctly capsulized by Thomas Jefferson: "The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them."
What clearer statement can be made on behalf of human liberty?
As late as 196l, John F. Kennedy summed up the same principle:
"The world is different now . . . And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forefathers fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God."
The "life" question for this election should be framed in such a manner that citizens can understand that our heritage of liberty has its basis in that very question, and that the "hand of force" may not necessarily be a totalitarian government's army, or even a terrorist attack.
However Biden and the rest of the US Senate voted 98-0 in favor of the identical federal version of the Born Alive Protection Act that Obama killed in 2003 in IL.
Even NARAL didnt object.
And this is the point that has to continue. Obama keeps spinning this trying to confuse and distract the WHYs of his vote. But when Obama is contrasted against Biden and the unanimous US Senate his spin fails.
Obama supported infanticide.
