Catholic Church Vows To Fight Obama

Link

BALTIMORE – The nation's Roman Catholic bishops vowed Tuesday to forcefully confront the Obama administration over its support for abortion rights, saying the church and religious freedom could be under attack in the new presidential administration.

In an impassioned discussion on Catholics in public life, several bishops said they would accept no compromise on abortion policy. Many condemned Catholics who had argued it was morally acceptable to back President-elect Obama because he pledged to reduce abortion rates.

And several prelates promised to call out Catholic policy makers on their failures to follow church teaching. Bishop Joseph Martino of Scranton, Pa., singled out Vice President-elect Biden, a Catholic, Scranton native who supports abortion rights.

"I cannot have a vice president-elect coming to Scranton to say he's learned his values there when those values are utterly against the teachings of the Catholic Church," Martino said. The Obama-Biden press office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Archbishop Joseph Naumann of the Diocese of Kansas City in Kansas said politicians "can't check your principles at the door of the legislature."

Naumann has said repeatedly that Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Catholic Democrat who supports abortion rights, should stop taking Holy Communion until she changes her stance.

"They cannot call themselves Catholic when they violate such a core belief as the dignity of the unborn," Naumann said Tuesday.

The discussion occurred on the same day the bishops approved a new "Blessing of a Child in the Womb." The prayer seeks a healthy pregnancy for the mother and makes a plea that "our civic rulers" perform their duties "while respecting the gift of human life."


It's pretty obvious to me the problem the Catholic church has with Obama's stance on abortion. Every abortion takes away a possible young boy or girl that the Priests can "indoctrinate" in the ways of the church.

Ralph, through double speak, once again proves just how full of shit her really is.

Ralph, your predictions have been ALL been proven false, your paranoia regarding the Clintons has been laughable, and everytime you type something on the computer you prove 2 things:

Your lack of intelligence, and your need for serious mental therapy.

Now, on behalf of all the other sane, reasoning individuals who frequent this blog:

Fuck off, you pedophile loving, cocksucking loser.
