How will you vote?
Obama supports abortion, even partial birth abortion. No Catholic at all can vote for him. Catholics MUST always vote pro-life.
This defines the very issue I am having right now with a few liberal Catholics who refuse to see a hierarchy of values. They pose the straw-man that you have to choose between A (a child molesting, polluter and poor employer who is pro life) and B (a adopting, environmentalist who cares for his/her workers but it pro-choice). Obviously A doesn’t exist, but they use that to justify their B.

gravely opposed to the moral law when this is done with the thought of possibly inducing an abortion, depending upon the results: a diagnosis must not be the equivalent
Hopefully I got the links fixed so that they don’t run together. Sorry.

They're just as willing here to vote Rat, even though they profess to be Catholic. It's just something they do because their parents and grandparents did it, more of an ethnic pride thing. We got rid of that in the NW, too, I've heard more names that the Irish call the Italians (and vice-versa) than I ever did back in WA.
Thanks for your eye-opening perspective.
You said it better than I could have.
**Democrats aren’t Jack Kennedy anymore, they’re baby killers, and why people who call themselves Catholics don’t see that, I’ll never understand.**
When one looks at the Catechism of the Catholic Church and sees that anyone who even assists (in any way) with an abortion is excommunicated..............it tries my brains to try to figure out why these Catholics can’t see the truth.
No Obama vote for me.
The other day, a freeper was trying to claim that Catholics can vote for a proabort IF that candidate’s position on abortion is not the reason for the support-as if a candidate can be a good guy when he’s not advocating the brutal torture and dismemberment of thousands of innocent babies each day.
NEVER can a Catholic support a candidate who breaks one of the Ten Commandments.
“Thou shalt not kill.”
Tell them that.
This whole “Catholic vote” is a myth. You have those who go to Mass on a regular basis and those who are cafeteria CINOS, then you have Irish/Italian ethnic Catholics whose ancestors went through Ellis Island or earlier and the Latino Catholics who sneaked across the border. These groups besides maybe going to the same overall church have nothing in common.
Had to leave the table when my wife’s elderly mother and aunt, both of whom volunteer at their parish, voted for Hitlery. Another older female friend, a small college professor, just left the Church over sexism.
The Church is reliant on women, but it is losing them.
Oh, several of us responded, but the freeper did not return- a hit and run lie about Church teaching.
