Joe Biden claims to be a Catholic.
He aint no Catholic.
He is a Democrat.His religion is Democrat.
No one can be a Catholic and support abortion on demand.
They used to say that Hillary Clinton reminded every divorced man of his first wife.
Last night, Joe Biden reminded every divorced woman of her first husband.
It does not advance the War on Women with women voters to have a loud, overbearing brute as the Democrat spokesman.
For the record: Raddatz sucks as a moderator!
Under the new health care law, HHS issued a preventive services mandate requiring nearly all employers to cover abortion drugs and contraceptives regardless of religious or moral objection. Shouldn't Americans be free to live out their faith commitments beyond the four walls of their church -- in the public square and in the way they run businesses or nonprofits serving the community?
On Aug. 1, that HHS mandate took effect as part of the law that even President Obama now calls Obamacare. The policy's "religious exemption" effectively frees only houses of worship from complying. The mandate forces an impossible choice on other religious groups and family business owners: Violate your conscience or pay a fine of $100 per day per employee for daring to offer a noncompliant health plan.
Dozens of Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox and Jewish groups, among others, urged President Obama to drop this conscience-crushing mandate. Despite signaling compromise, the administration stood by its mandate. Because of that intransigence, more than 80 religious schools, hospitals, charities and other employers have gone to court to defend their first freedom. We need serious debate on whether government should allow Americans to choose a health plan that meets their needs and respects their conscience.
Ryan T. Anderson, a colleague at The Heritage Foundation, commented after the first debate that evaluating how policy intersects culture and civil society is at least as important as the nuts and bolts of taxation and regulation, of Medicare and Social Security.
At the end of the day, culture and the institutions of civil society are what make America great," Anderson said. "Our government shouldn't be weakening them."
Did Raddatz ask abortion question to focus media on Obama war on women playbook?
Does a bear.... in the woods? Simply put, why else bring this up? It was actually a double question, the inference is Romney is Morman. The idea is to juxtapose catholics against mormans.
I was following the debate feed on twitter last night and it was very odd that a bunch of the liberal tweeters starting asking “when are they going to talk about women’s health(gag)”? and several women tweeters started to tweet as if their uterus was doing the talking...all of this minutes before the moderator asked the question. Kind of makes you wonder if OFA folks got an advance copy of the script.
Well Chris; Barak spent Mahre's money on weed.
Where do you think he spent YOUR's?
We have two Catholic candidates, first time, on a stage such as this,
and we have two Catholic candidates, first time, on the POTUS ticket...
and the only time theres been no Christian on the top of the ticket for either side...
They all tell us to care for the helpless, the injured, the mindless hulks.
Without that teaching he'd been gone long ago!
Actually, this is a revealing statement, though it is a diversion.
"Those" mentioned in this statement really seek to keep abortion guilt-free. The legality is simply society's statement that "abortion is OK, and you need not feel guilt for having an abortion".
You'll find this is at the root of 90% of the motivation of "pro-choicers".
I don't understand why they persist in the belief that this is somehow a winning issue for them. It isn't 1992 anymore.
I support outlawing the TAXPAYERS having to pay for abortions.
IF you think you need one, go get it yourself. I should not have to pay one single penny for such.
