Some Catholics Disappointed in Obama
FoxNews ^ | 3/19/09 | Shannon Bream

He garnered the majority of Catholic votes in the 2008 election, but a number of Catholic groups now say President Obama is showing a complete lack of regard for their beliefs. They count his decisions to lift restrictions on abortion and stem cell research among the most offensive. "As far as the Catholic church goes, there's no bigger priority for Catholics than human dignity and human life," said Cathy Ruse, senior fellow at the Family Research Council said. "And the Obama administration has just been an assault on those values again and again in just two months."

Well duh! I’m Catholic and I knew what Obama stood for! These people who voted for Obama knew what he stood for yet they chose to vote for him anyway, and then they express shock at the things he’s done?

Not true!

I’ve never been disappointed by one because

1. I never had any expectations that I would like what a Democrat would do.

2. I never have voted for one.

Some of the “Catholics” who voted for Obama are leftist dissidents. But a fair number of them were probably just ignorant.

Frankly, the statement of the US bishops’ conference on the politics of abortion, issued last summer, although orthodox in principle, was exceedingly stupid, because it seemed to qppear racism with abortion as equally serious sins. They are not, unless by “racism” you mean actually going out and killing people.

Also, McCain was an ass. He barely raised this issue, and he completely discredited himself with Evangelicals by treating them with confusion and disrespect. The same with Catholics. He should have attacked Obama as an extreme baby killer, who three times voted to let children die who are born alive; but he refused to do it.

In other words, there was a lot of ignorance, helped along by everyone who should have been outing Obama for what he really represents.

If that is truly the case, NO Catholics should have voted for nobama. He laid out his plans regarding this during the campaign. No one should be surprised at what he has done.

Hey Shannon Bream, who's your editor? They are not very good.

I’m thinking also that there are many Catholics in the liberal east.

I don’t really get it because Obama has been consistently for abortion and Palestine.

Dear Catholic Church,

You were warned what a President Obama would be like months before the day of the election and you ignored those warnings. Now you want to cry about the choice you made. You’ve helped to move this country towards socialism with your voting actions. You do not now get to bleat about the pain this has caused you, while ignoring the reality of the pain you’ve caused the rest of us. Cry to someone else - I’m all out of sympathy for morons.

Other than Jews, as a group Catholics are the stupidest voters in the US.

Obama campaigned on doing these things and his votes proved his intentions as well. If they still voted for him and are just NOW figuring this out, I call em as I see em, they are flat out stupid.

Doing EXACTLY what he said he would do and they are disappointed? I guess they were just too blinded by his dazzling oratory and his promises to “bring people together” and all that bull. Or they figured his voting record couldn’t be real. After all, he seems so nice. Just because he voted for unrestricted abortion doesn’t mean he would do that as president.

I don’t know what world these people are living in.

What is the current status of ACORN’s CCHD funding?
Last June, CCHD cut off funding of grants to ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) groups because of questions that arose about financial management, fiscal transparency and organizational accountability of the national ACORN structures.

During the CCHD Bishops Subcommittee meeting November 8-9, 2008, the Subcommittee voted unanimously to extend and formalize ending CCHD funding of ACORN organizations. This decision was made because of serious concerns regarding ACORN’s lack of financial transparency, organizational performance, and questions surrounding political partisanship.

They stopped funding them in November 2008.

I think some people are actually in shock to discover that Obama really IS a politician. Say anything to get voted. That’s what happens when you vote on someone you know nothing about except what they tell you.

As many lies as this dimwit has gotten busted for, is there anyone who still believes his AUTO-biography?

I have some advice for anybody who voted for 0bama and doesn’t like anything he has done or will do while he is in office: DON’T EVER VOTE AGAIN! YOU AREN’T NEARLY SMART ENOUGH TO VOTE! HE IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT THOSE OF US WHO ARE SMART ENOUGH TO VOTE EXPECTED HE WOULD DO! THAT IS WHY WE ALL VOTED AGAINST HIM!

As a PRACTICING Catholic, these responses from other "Catholics" make my head explode. Didn't they ever notice anything that Obama ever said or did? Were they just figuring that he couldn't be that bad because he seems like a nice guy? Just like the so called conservative pundits (like Noonan and Will) that turned to Obama, these are not morally grounded people. They are CINO's. It doesn't help that there is a lack of moral clarity from some Catholic clergy. I do think that the leadership is starting to trend more conservative as Popes JPII and Benedict have been seating new bishops. I am sad to lose Bishop Dolan to New York, but he will be an eloquent beacon of moral clarity for the whole county as the Bishop in NY. May the Lord deliver us from the punishment we have brought upon ourselves these days!

On his way to a decisive victory, Barack Obama won a majority of the nation’s Catholic voters, a closely watched swing group that has sided with the winner in nine of the last 10 presidential elections.

Sad, but it seems to be true!
