A Catholic Case Against Barack Obama
By Patrick J. Buchanan interspersed with my comments in red
In the Pennsylvania primary, Barack Obama rolled up more than 90 percent of the African-American vote. Among Catholics, he lost by 40 points. The cool liberal Harvard Law grad was not a good fit for the socially conservative ethnics of Altoona, Aliquippa and Johnstown.
“cool liberal” – He may be “cool” to radical left liberals, but not to real Catholics.
But if Barack had a problem with Catholics then, he has a far higher hurdle to surmount in the fall, with those millions of Catholics who still take their faith and moral code seriously.
And there are plenty of us! The problem is that it is the Kerry’s, the Sebelius’s, and the Pelosi’s who attract the mainstream media’s attention.
For not only is Barack the most pro-abortion member of the Senate, with his straight A+ report card from the National Abortion Rights Action League and Planned Parenthood. He supports the late-term procedure known as partial-birth abortion, where the baby’s skull is stabbed with scissors in the birth canal and the brains are sucked out to end its life swiftly and ease passage of the corpse into the pan.
What kind of human being supports stabbing a baby in the skull with scissors and sucking his/her brains out?
Partial-birth abortion, said the late Sen. Pat Moynihan, “comes as close to infanticide as anything I have seen in our judiciary.”
It is infanticide!
Yet, when Congress was voting to ban this terrible form of death for a mature fetus, Michelle Obama was signing fundraising letters pledging that, if elected, Barack would be “tireless” in keeping legal this “legitimate medical procedure.”
And Barack did not let the militants down. When the Supreme Court upheld the congressional ban on this barbaric procedure, Barack denounced the court for denying “equal rights for women.”
What about the right to life for baby girls, Obama?
As David Freddoso reports in his new best-seller, “The Case Against Barack Obama,” the Illinois senator goes further than any U.S. senator has dared go in defending what John Paul II called the “culture of death.”
Thrice in the Illinois legislature, Obama helped block a bill that was designed solely to protect the life of infants already born, and outside the womb, who had miraculously survived the attempt to kill them during an abortion. Thrice, Obama voted to let doctors and nurses allow these tiny human beings die of neglect and be tossed out with the medical waste.
You have to be very spiritually and mentally sick to even tolerate this kind of cruelty, much less support and defend it! This sounds like the behavior of a sociopath — a Charles Manson type of individual — someone with no compassion for other human beings. Sociopaths treat other human beings as they were objects and that’s what Obama seems to be doing here as well as in the previous example.
How can a man who purports to be a Christian justify this? MORE
This is not in line with Christian beliefs and there is no way in my wildest imagination that I can see Christ acting in this manner.
