Democrats Tweet F-Bombs to Cardinal Dolan After Pro-Life Prayer

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.

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.

It was not that many years ago that blasphemous insults aimed at God and Christ were met with embarrassment for the blasphemer. Now, such devilish filth is cheered, hailed as ‘hip’, to use an old fashioned word.

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.

It’s a crying shame that all their mothers were pro life, isn’t it.
