Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Pepperdine law professor who calls himself a pro-life Catholic but was one of the leading apologists for perhaps the most pro-abortion presidential candidate in history is at it again. Douglas Kmiec is now saying Barack Obama is more Catholic than previous presidents who were pro-life.
Kmiec's comments come in response to some from Cardinal J. Francis Stafford, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See, who called Obama on the carpet on abortion in a speech at the Catholic University of America last Thursday.
In an address sponsored by the John Paul II Institute, Stafford called Obama's pro-abortion policies aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic" and that the senator campaigned on an extremist anti-life platform.
CNN conducted a follow-up interview with Cardinal Stafford, who stood by his remarks.
Stafford told the cable news network that he couldn't understand how any Catholic could support Obama because of his radical views in favor of taxpayer-funded abortions, unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy and overturning all of the hundreds of abortion reduction laws in all 50 states.
As a result, Stafford says Obama "is hostile to the life of an unborn child.
That's where Kmiec come in to play.
The CUA Tower student newspaper interviewed him in response to Stafford's comments.
Kmiec told the paper that Stafford was giving a false portrayal of Obama and accused him of talking about Obama's abortion views not as they are but as they are made out to be by opponents.
Sometimes all of us even the wisest among us are given to speak not from personal knowledge, but from that which has been portrayed as true, but is really a caricature, said Kmiec in an interview with The Tower.
When Stafford gets to know Obama better, said Kmiec, he will readily see that Obama has far more in common with our great faith tradition than any political administration in recent memory.
With pro-life champions in office like President Ronald Reagan and President Bush, who signed numerous pro-life laws, even a pro-life Obama would be hard-pressed to match the accomplishments of their administration -- yet alone a president who could become the most pro-abortion in history.
Kmiec is clearly unhinged!

Ha. I logged-in to suggest full-blown syphilis.
huh? It had become obvious that people can now say anything they want the way they want it.
And don't get me started on Jews that voted for a man who attended an antisemitic church for twenty years and had a campaign staff in the Gaza strip.
My dog is more Catholic than Doug Kmiec.
owwwww - its going to be hot where this guy is headed...
Next they’ll say Obama is the first black President Bush.
Oh my God, what a liar!
That; and he must have sold his soul and sanity for what he thought was of greater value. FOOL.
what Was the name of the little traitor who advised the King in Lord of the Rings?

My dog is a Frisbeeterian. He believes that when you die, your soul gets stuck on a roof and can’t be gotten back.
Another round of those protesting and then leaving the Church is occurring. They too will reject Christ and His Church just as those who wished to create God in their own image have before.
