I’ll come right out and say it: I am a Catholic, and I am sickened by these leftist factions who are peddling outright falsehoods about Obama’s pro-abortion stance. Take Catholics for Obama; the front page of their website has this: “Is Barack Obama really pro-life? The answer is “yes.”” Yes?! They proceed to contort and convolute an answer from BOs blatantly radical pro-abortion background. And who exactly is Catholics for Obama? The answer is, basically, the Kennedy family and their cronies. Such bastions of truth and morality.
Since these supposed Catholics apparently missed the sermons on telling the truth, let’s answer the question for them. Is Barack Obama pro-life? No. Non. Nyet. Nein. A “100% NARAL pro-abortion rating” NO!
Gloria.tv has a great video, giving Obama’s decidedly anti-prolife stance, using his own words. Check it out:
And don’t forget the message of Gianna Jessen, who survived a botched abortion:
Luckily, Denver’s Roman Catholic Archbishop, Father Charles Chaput, stepped forward to set the record straight, saying Barack Obama is the “most committed” abortion rights major party presidential candidate in 35 years.
According to Fox News, Father Chaput said:
“To suggest, as some Catholics do, that Senator Obama is this year’s ‘real’ pro-life candidate requires a peculiar kind of self-hypnosis, or moral confusion, or worse.”
Chaput adds that pro-Obama Catholics “seek to contextualize, demote and then counterbalance the evil of abortion with other important but less foundational social issues.”
Amen, Fr. Chaput. The obfuscation of the truth by these groups serves no other purpose than to deceive voters and perpetuate a leftist agenda. That they cloak themselves in Catholicism while doing so is truly offensive.
