Hudson and Fournier: Catholic Countdown to Election 2012, Day 40
Catholic Online ^ | 9/27/12 | Deal W Hudson, Rev. Mr. Keith Fournier

The Catholic supporters of President Obama have started making phone calls to solicit support for their candidate. OK, that's fine -- calls to prospective voters are part of every campaign season. But you won't believe what is being said about Obama, at least from the call received by a Catholic woman who happens to be the chair of her parish pro-life committee. Did you know that Obama did not support abortion, and did you know that Planned Parenthood didn't either? Well, that's what Catholics are being told on the phone by representatives of the President's campaign.

...A poll just released by the Susan B. Anthony list corroborates what all religiously-active Catholics already know -- namely, that President Obama's aggressively pro-abortion policies have hurt his standing with Catholic voters in the key battleground states. Key findings from the poll of 650 likely voters are the following:

54 percent of swing voters said they would be less likely -- 35 percent much less likely -- to vote for President Obama after learning that he voted against a law to give equal treatment and constitutional protections to babies born alive after a failed abortion. AND the President's record on the Born-Alive issue costs him support even among his supporters: Nearly half (49 percent) of voters leaning towards voting for President Obama said they would be less likely to do so after learning about his record.

Wow! President Obama should be paying attention to numbers like that! But readers can be sure that Obama and his advisors are paying little attention, hoping that voters will believe the misrepresentations of their surrogates, such as the caller mentioned above...

You cannot be a devout Catholic and support Obama.

Those who do are either not paying attention or are Cafetaria catholics.

Apparently, these volunteers are Democrats first and Catholics somewhere down their list of priorities. These “Catholics” have something in common with Muslims. They feel that lying is okay if it furthers their political agenda.

God doesn’t make that exception. The Bible tells us in 37 passages that He hates liars. One of them is Prov. 6: 16-19, “There are six things that the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”

Shamefully, this list almost sounds like a resume for a successful politician today.

No Democrat has ever won the presidency while losing the Catholic vote. Eisenhower and Bush jr did it once, but that's it: You lose Catholics and you lose. The latest Battleground Poll has Romney at 51% and no mention of what Obama is getting. That means he is not getting the other 49%. He is getting something less and the “undecideds” are probably Democrats embarrassed to say they don't want to vote for Obama. In August a poll done by a secular firm found Obama with just 27% or exactly half the support he got from Catholics in 2008. This is why suspect the “undecided” are not voting for Obama. When was the last time we saw a poll of just Catholics? Crickets and more crickets. Gee I wonder why! Here’s the link for the 27% support site
Catholics are NOT going to vote for Obama.

Catholic voters favor Obama; Church guide favors Romney and GOP platform

CHICAGO - Almost 24 percent of America’s 301 million identify themselves as part of the Catholic Church. How that voting bloc votes in 2012 could very well determine the outcome of the Presidential race if Catholics are motivated to go to the polls.

According to a poll released Thursday, Catholic voters are siding with re-electing President Obama. In June, Obama held a slight edge over Mitt Romney among Catholics (49-47 percent), but since then, Obama is surging ahead, and now leads 54-39 percent, according to a Pew Research poll conducted on Sept. 16....

I don’t know where they come up with these Polls, but here is one Catholic that see’s Obama for what he is.

I want that Christ hating Muslim filth out of my White House and out of my country.

I wish I would never hear a word from him again after we turn him out, and I wish he and Bill Clinton would both go somewhere that we wouldn’t have to hear from either of them again.
