VIDEO - The Vortex: Disinvite Obama
We the undersigned respectfully request that the invitation to Barack Obama to be a guest at this years annual Al Smith charity fundraising dinner be withdrawn immediately.
Barack Obama has proven himself to be an aggressive adversary of the Catholic Church with regard to numerous policies put forth under his administration.
These include, but are not limited to, his forceful efforts to advance the intrinsic evil of abortion on demand both domestically and internationally; his antagonistic and ruthless efforts to force the intrinsic evils of contraception and sterilization on poor nations through financial enticements and threats; his continued policy of directing US tax dollars to such organizations as Planned Parenthood which traffic in the currency of numerous intrinsic evils.
Moreover, Barack Obama has lied numerous times, including his controversial appearance at Notre Dame in 2009, about attempts to reach so-called common ground with the Catholic Church on matters including protection of conscience rights for health care workers.
His most recent legal efforts to force Catholic institutions to act against their consciences and pay for contraception and abortion inducing birth control products underscore his total belligerence toward the Catholic Church and Her teachings.
As such .. the appearance of Barack Obama .. such an openly hostile opponent of the Church .. at a Catholic gala attended by high-ranking Catholic clergy would be a massive insult to untold numbers of the faithful who have fought this mans advancement of one intrinsic evil after another.
In addition to matters of life .. Barack Obama has orchestrated a militant effort against the sacredness of marriage by supporting, promoting and advancing the intrinsic evil of same-sex so-called marriage at home and abroad. He has directed the full might and force of the federal government to impose its will on the Catholic Church in limiting and restricting Her rights and responsibilities to carry out the corporal works of mercy in the areas of adoption services, and ministering to US military personnel who are Catholic.
We therefore respectfully request that Barack Obamas invitation be rescinded without delay and a sense of proper decorum restored.
Lord, have mercy ..
.. Pray for courage
And this dinner is being held two weeks before we vote. How convenient. /sarc
They should add that Obama has openly embraced the gays and their desire to marry thus his opposition to traditional marriage.
Beyond alarming and disturbing .. while the Church is suing Obama for his blatant assault and tyranny on religious liberty.
Father Frank Pavone, president of Priests for Life, denounced Obama’s planned appearance at the dinner. His remarks, though brief, are spot-on. Of particular note is his statement, perhaps as a retort to Zwilling, “there comes a time when the polite putting aside of differences for a while amounts to scandal”. Father Pavone is correct.
Over three years ago, Obama gave the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame. That was roundly and rightly criticized.
Among the critics was - Cardinal Dolan! Read his statement from April 15, 2009!
He said (among other things), “by inviting President Obama to deliver the commencement address and to receive an honorary degree, Notre Dame wrongly signaled to students ‘we hold him up as a model to you’”.
I submit that there is no change between that occasion and this. Why the change in Cardinal Dolan’s outlook between then and now? I submit that Cardinal Dolan is sending the same signal now that he so correctly deplored in 2009. This dichotomy in the Cardinal’s two positions is rendered more stark by the evils thrust on this nation during the intervening three years.
Listen to Michael Voris’ videos above .. he’s simply fantastic and scrupulously adherent to the faith.
FYI .. this in the above petition:
“In addition to matters of life .. Barack Obama has orchestrated a militant effort against the sacredness of marriage by supporting, promoting and advancing the intrinsic evil of same-sex so-called marriage at home and abroad.”
Why the change in Cardinal Dolans outlook between then and now?He evidently sold out, but why? What could Dolan possibly have been offered that is more important than the saving of his own soul?
No—it’s not a sell-out. It’s one of those post-Pious XII niceties. You know—love, peace, ecumenism, tolerance. Does the poor cardinal really believe that some Pax NewYorkus can apply in an all-out war with evil? If so, his advisors are as despicably “lukewarm” as Romney’s. And both suffer from low expectorations.
Also, the fact that as state Senator, he voted against saving the lives of babies born live from an abortion.
Let us pray for courage in our Church leaders.
Amen! Someone .. anyone .. !! All we hear are crickets, all we see is weakness, gentility and submission .. it’s heartbreaking and infuriating. Who to defend, inspire and stand up and lead us in the faith, if not them??
Lord, hear our prayers ...
