Skip to comments.Obama Misled Pope on Abortion, Congressman Charges
Posted on 07/21/2009 8:58:02 AM PDT by Pope Pius XII
In remarks on the House floor last week, Congressman Chris Smith argued that President Obama purposely misled Pope Benedict XVI when he said that he wants to reduce abortion at their July 10 meeting.
Smith recalled the president's statement to the Pope and pointed out that Obama has repeated it several times to different audiences. And yet, Smith charged, Obamas actions have not aligned with his words. He says one thing and does precisely the opposite.
Now, the New Jersey Congressman said, Obama is offering a plan for health care reform that is a thinly veiled attempt to increase access to abortion on demand. The plan would increase funding for abortions and allow abortion services to be considered part of basic health care required by all insurance plans, including private plans.

Congressman Chris Smith has publicly stated what we FReepers have been writing about since that meeting took place. And it shall still fall on deaf ears.
He says one thing and does precisely the opposite.
The student of Alinsky....
We knew that, and I think Pope Benedict knew it too.
Contact your Congress critters!
Toll free capital switchboard numbers are:
Obama wants MORE abortions.
In fact allot of money in the Health Scare Bill is for ABORTIONS!
Obama is so EVIL.
Why doesn’t the Pope condemn him as the LIAR he is?
Why be tectful with the devil’s minion?
When he doesn’t other Catholics FOLLOW OBAMA.
Misled? I guess.....
Mobama misled.....Fill in the blank.
Oh, yeah, he'll burn...
The current squatter soiling the Whitehouse lies about EVERYTHING.
Words....only words....Words don't have the meanings that are historically meant for them....They only mean what the user intended, NOT WHAT THE WORDS ACTUALLY MEAN!
What has ObaMao done to reduce abortions?
The push for homosexual genital sex would reduce the number of pregnancies, thus less abortions!
Maybe that is his plan!
Lying to the pope....why, that’s almost as bad as saying the O’s name in vain.
Obama Misled Pope on Abortion,
Monson Misled Obama on his family...
Boy, the Pope sure is lucky to have the likes of an American Congressman to set him straight and keep him from being fooled by Obama. Gee, without an American Congressman to guide him, well, the poor old unsophisticated and simple Pope probably would have just turned the keys of the Vatican over to the President...and then what????????????????????????? I hope if the president talks to the EP, some Congressman will come to his rescue too. Really, I mean that; honest....
I hope the Pope asked him why he wants to reduce the number of abortions.
Just make sure the Patriarch has an up-to-date tetanus booster before he meets with Zero.
The conman Obama will say anything that he feels will keep the mark hooked. He doesn’t care about anyone’s opinion of what he really does, as long as all the marks remain hooked.
The Pope was just another mark to Obama.
I’m sure that BXVI, as astute as he is, and as informed on internal US politics as he is, is not going to fall for an empty suit with outsize jug ears.
The Church has been around for 2000 years; the current incarnation of the Democrats has been around for maybe 40.
“Just make sure the Patriarch has an up-to-date tetanus booster before he meets with Zero.”
TC, he lives with Turks! Still concerned?! :)

I’m sure that Obama has taught the Pope even more than did Nancy Pelosi. The EP? Putty. Catholicism has no chance against the wiles of Obama. I think that you and I had better just pack it in and start reading the Gospels according to Rahm Emmanuel and David Axelrod.
I suspect that Rahm’s Gospel will be a rather short one.
The Patriarch must have a very impressive immune system.
“I think that you and I had better just pack it in and start reading the Gospels according to Rahm Emmanuel and David Axelrod.”
Yup. No doubt the best course is simply to accept that The Church is finished. So sad! Ah, well....
“The Patriarch must have a very impressive immune system.”
Comes from a lifetime of exposure to Turkish Mohammedan toxin. Its a lot like the result of repeated exposure to some snake venoms, immunity.
We only keep nonvenomous snakes ;-).
Misled is just a kinder gentler way of saying LIED!
“We only keep nonvenomous snakes ;-).”
Oh ye of little faith! and here I thought even you Latins down South brought your own snakes to Liturgy!
Only for the Animal Blessing on St. Francis’s Day.
“Only for the Animal Blessing on St. Franciss Day”
We have a a custom sort of like that, the Blessing of the New Cars. The priest says some prayers then everyone throws coins into the cars. Two years later its usually still worthwhile to look under a seat for that needed extra nickel or dime!
My old parish, St. Benedict’s of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, had a Blessing of Newly Licensed Drivers.
“My old parish, St. Benedicts of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, had a Blessing of Newly Licensed Drivers.”
Did you throw money at them?
Nope. Throwing money at their parents, who had to pay for the auto insurance, would have been sensible, but I don’t think anyone thought of it.
The Pope is a big boy and should have kicked that crypto-muslims ass to the curb on a multitude of issues, Husseins lust for baby killing obviously the most important.

It is not just that the Pope is the head of the Latin branch of Christianity, it is that he serves as both head of state AND head of government of Vatican City. Obama, being president in a democratic republic, also serves as both head of state and head of government.
These meetings are tricky because of all the levels involved. Plus, in these three roles, the various Popes have met with all kinds of evil men or have sent Papal envoys and set up embassies in their countries. JPII visited Castro. Should he not have done that? Should the Vatican have shunned the entire Eastern bloc during the Iron Curtain decades? Should Poland have been left under the boot of the commissars?
You mean .... he LIED? Horrors!
