While Obama might be seeming to move toward moderation on the war and the economy, his commitment to the culture of death is absolute and unwavering. We will not back down or be silenced in our fight against this evil.
Thanks for the ping!

A young, idealistic Obama supporter emailed me (and others) this message soon after Election Day 2008: "Please read the information at this site and sign the petition opposing the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). This is basically a piece of legislation that will wipe away EVERY restriction on abortion nationwide regarding parental consent, which trimester, partial birth abortions, etc. Thank you."
That person (and millions of others) should have focused on the respective positions of the presidential candidates on the Freedom of Choice Act BEFORE they voted.
Electing a black man was historic, but a candidate's color or race should not determine whether or not he or she should be supported. That was NOT Dr. Martin Luther King's famous dream.
If 2008 was destined to be the year America elected a black man President, it should have been one who embraces life and traditional American values,. like Ambassador Alan Keyes, not the President-Elect.
Last Halloween, which Team Obama was tricking many prospective voters, Father Richard John Neuhaus, editor in chief of First Things, offered a treat to America's voters, am article titled "Why this Election is About the Freedom of Religion" warning what was at stake on Election Day 2008.
Father Neuhaus began: "One can argue that every presidential election is a 'historic' election. But some are more historic than others. Daniel Henninger had a provocative column yesterday making a strong case that this one is a 'tipping point' between America continuing as an entrepreneurial society or going the way of the European 'social democracies.' He cites the late Senator Pat Moynihan who said the big difference between Europe and America is that the former gives priority to equality and the latter to liberty. I'm not sure that Henninger is right in saying there would be no turning back after four or eight years of President Obama and an overwhelmingly Democratic Congress imposing their passion for a government-directed program of redistribution and social coordination, but the future he depicts is both plausible and ominous."
Father Neuhaus is right: the situation is ominous, but not hopeless.
Father Neuhaus continued: "There is another dimension of this ideological passion for the expansion of government control that is at least equally worrying. It has to do with the freedom of religion in the American constitutional order and the indispensable part that religion plays in checking the ambitions of the modern democratic state. Obama has said that he thinks it is 'tragic' that the Supreme Court has declined to advance the cause of redistributive justice. That refers, of course, to economic redistribution. But the language of healing divisions and bringing us all togetherunder government auspicesapplies also to the social dynamics of American society."
Alas, thanks to the bulk of the major media and inept McCain campaign strategy, millions of voters were unaware of the danger of which Father Neuhaus warned...
**We will not back down or be silenced in our fight against this e**
Amen and Amen!
