Democrats Tweet F-Bombs to Cardinal Dolan After Pro-Life Prayer
Life News ^ | 09 .07.12 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 09/07/2012 4:58:54 PM PDT by Coleus

Democrats were not too happy that Timothy Cardinal Dolan admonished them about respecting human life and religious liberty during his closing benediction at the Democratic National Convention.

On Twitter, hundreds of liberals vented their frustration with the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Below are a handful of the samples of F-bombs liberals dropped on the Catholic cardinal during and after his benediction.

“Grant us the courage to defend life…waiting to be born, welcomed & protected,” he said, excoriating Democrats to support religious liberty as well in light of the controversial Obama HHS mandate that Catholics and pro-life advocates oppose. Dolan prays for “life, without which no other rights are secured.”

“God grants us the right to life so we can choose liberty and happiness,” he said, adding that unborn children should “be welcomed and protected.” He referred to the right to life, without which no other right has meaning, saying, “We praise You for the gift of life, grant us the courage to defend it.”

“Renew in all our people a profound respect for religious liberty, the first, most cherished freedom,” he said.

The full text and video of the prayer appears here.

We’ll see what happens Nov. 6th. But i have to believe that more than a few moderate or undecideds were deeply offended at these liberals booing God.

Can’t believe that Obama gets any bounce out of this depressing convention.

These Democrats are now, today, beyond even pretending that they are in favor of such things (remember the “safe, legal, and rare” that they claimed to want to make abortion to be?).

This priest voiced a desire that is not just “Roman Catholic” but common to all serious Christians.

Doggone it, these Rats don’t even want a fig leaf any more.

dims had better tread very lightly... there is but one sin that is UNFORGIVABLE and they are treading mighty close to performing that sin. They may not believe in GOD but GOD believes in them and they had better repent before they lose their last chance. Any dim that believes in GOD should leave that party right now... for they may wait until it is too late.

HIS will be done... amen.

Catholics will be abused when they confess Christ

Paragraph 1400 from the CCC states,

"Ecclesial communities derived from the Reformation and separated from the Catholic Church, "have not preserved the proper reality of the Eucharistic mystery in its fullness, especially because of the absence of the sacrament of Holy Orders." It is for this reason that, for the Catholic Church, Eucharistic intercommunion with these communities is not possible. However these ecclesial communities, "when they commemorate the Lord's death and resurrection in the Holy Supper . . . profess that it signifies life in communion with Christ and await his coming in glory."

This paragraph speaks about Protestants. But it also has a phrase that speaks to the Catholic confession of faith in the Mass. Whenever you see a Catholic church spire, it is like a billboard with a message. The Pope, the Cardinals, the Bishops, all are messengers of that message. The message is summed up in the important phrase,

"… they commemorate the Lord's death and resurrection in the Holy Supper … profess that it signifies life in communion with Christ and await his coming in glory."

This describes the confession of Christ by Catholics in the Mass. That is when the world opposes them so strongly.

Honestly, were I pro-abort, I would still hope to have the good grace just to leave the arena before the Cardinal came to make his benediction. They knew full well the tenor of what he’d be saying.

An absolutely brilliant prayer. It should appeal to every Christian or Jew. And it is filled with references to our Constitutional freedoms.

I take back everything I said about the invitations to the Al Smith Dinner. Now, having seen this prayer at the DNC, I wonder if Obama will back out of that dinner rather than risk another such prayer?

The prayer WAS brilliant. Not only does he pray for the unborn, he deals with the gay and same-sex marriage issue when he refers to the pursuit of happiness. He asks for grace that Americans would choose “wisely” this fall....and then ends it with numerous refernces to God - One nation under God, in God we Trust, God bless America.

God bless this man.

LOL, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cardinal Dolan.

He suckered punched them.

First they said, no he couldn’t give the benediction.

Then, after all the bad publicity, they caved.

And the coup de grace, his prayer shames them and they attack him revealing the utter void of their hearts.

Oh, thank you Lord God Almighty for this man!

Dolan mentioned God and the innocent unborn in the same speech: a lethal combination for the heathen liberals. Here's what unhinged the pro-aborts and sent them into paroxysms of apoplectic rage:

With a ‘firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,’ let us close this convention by praying for this land that we so cherish and love.

Let us pray.

Almighty God, father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, revealed to us so powerfully in Your Son, Jesus Christ, we thank You for showering Your blessings upon this our beloved nation. Bless all here present, and all across this great land, who work hard for the day when a greater portion of Your justice, and a more ample measure of Your care for the poor and suffering, may prevail in these United States. Help us to see that a society’s greatness is found above all in the respect it shows for the weakest and neediest among us.

We beseech You, almighty God to shed Your grace on this noble experiment in ordered liberty, which began with the confident assertion of inalienable rights bestowed upon us by You: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Thus do we praise You for the gift of life. Grant us the courage to defend it, life, without which no other rights are secure. We ask Your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected. Strengthen our sick and our elders waiting to see Your holy face at life’s end, that they may be accompanied by true compassion and cherished with the dignity due those who are infirm and fragile. . . .

This is in front of a lot of young people, probably lots of teenagers, at Northwestern University.

And have you ever seen the sacrilege and blasphemy of Stephen Colbert's Christmas Special, where he mocks the Trinity and the Virgin and the Holy Family?

The two of them are mockers, defilers and are turning our youth into a bunch of helpless stoners and slackers who can't think, but can snark with the best.

A good conservatives knows their enemies. I know that once in a while these "cool" guys at the popular table in the cafeteria throw a bone towards the right half of the room--but ultimately all these two do is serve Satan.

If Dolan matches Mother Teresa's National Prayer Breakfast speech in 1994, he'll have the Obamas squirming as twitchily as the Clintons did.

. . . But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.

By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And, by abortion, that father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. The father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

Many people are very, very concerned with the children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about all the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions who are being killed by the deliberate decision of their own mothers. And this is what is the greatest destroyer of peace today - abortion which brings people to such blindness.

Yes. That was a marvelous occasion. And Peggy Noonan’s editorial describing what happened marked the height of her career. From there, regretably, Noonan went downhill. But her piece describing that prayer breakfast was absolutely wonderful—partly, of course, because Mother Teresa gave her the words to work with.

I’ve watched Stephen Colbert - maybe twice. I’m not a fan. But there are times when Joh Stewart deals with issues in ways that are so honest that he’s almost fair to us. Then again I don’t watch him that often - too much liberal garbage to wade through - too much effort. Here’s a link - might help explain what I’m trying to say.

That's OK--I already know a lot of Stewart fans who are always telling me how sweet and good he is...

Did you even watch the youtube where he was shieking "F*** YOU SARAH PALIN!" over and over, in front of an audience of young people, many of whom are teenagers?

He's a loathsome Israel-hater, Christian-hater, conservative-hater, really everybody-who-isn't-an-urban-gay-progressive hater...and he's very effective at what he does. He even has a lot of conservatives who like him. But I don't think he's going to be as effective this time around.
