Senator Obama Is Not A Catholic Voter's Choice

Senator Obama Is Not A Catholic Voter's Choice

"Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment." John 7:24

Senator Barack Obama is not a loving, caring Christian. His voting record and his stance on important issues show his true, selfish, nature.

from Senator Obama's web site:

"I think that we should put more of our tax dollars into educating poor girls and boys. I think that the work that Marian Wright Edelman has done all her life is absolutely how we should prioritize our resources in the wealthiest nation on earth. I also think that we should give them the information about contraception that can prevent unwanted pregnancies, lower abortion rates, and help assure that that every child is loved and cherished." (This statement shows a lack of caring and love for the poor. For more informatio: Physicians For Life)

"But the reason the doctor was considering not voting for me was not simply my position on abortion. Rather, he had read an entry that my campaign had posted on my website, which suggested that I would fight "right-wing ideologues who want to take away a woman's right to choose.""
(Again, showing a lack of love for women.)

(This is a man who cares for... what(?), certainly not love of his fellow man.)

also from page:

"But what they didn't understand, however, was that I had to take Mr. [Alan] Keyes seriously, for he claimed to speak for my religion, and my God. He claimed knowledge of certain truths.

Mr. Obama says he's a Christian, he was saying, and yet he supports a lifestyle that the Bible calls an abomination.

Mr. Obama says he's a Christian, but supports the destruction of innocent and sacred life.

And so what would my supporters have me say? How should I respond? Should I say that a literalist reading of the Bible was folly? Should I say that Mr. Keyes, who is a Roman Catholic, should ignore the teachings of the Pope?

Unwilling to go there, I answered with what has come to be the typically liberal response in such debates - namely, I said that we live in a pluralistic society, that I can't impose my own religious views on another, that I was running to be the U.S. Senator of Illinois and not the Minister of Illinois."

(So, Senator Obama admits that he is for a "lifestyle" that is opposed to the "Bible" actually a lifestyle opposed to LOVE and that he is opposed to the teachings of the Catholic Church.)


from Source: 2008 Democratic Compassion Forum at Messiah College Apr 13, 2008:

"Undecided on whether life begins at conception
Q: Do you personally believe that life begins at conception?
A: This is something that I have not come to a firm resolution on. I think it's very hard to know what that means, when life begins. Is it when a cell separates? Is it when the soul stirs? So I don't presume to know the answer to that question. What I know is that there is something extraordinarily powerful about potential life and that that has a moral weight to it that we take into consideration when we're having these debates."

Expand access to contraception; reduce unintended pregnancy
Reproductive Choice: Obama has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving a women's right to choose under Roe v. Wade a priority as president. Obama also supports expanded access to contraception, health information and preventive services to reduce unintended pregnancies.
Protecting a Women's Right to Choose: Obama will make safeguarding women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn that decision.
Reducing Unintended Pregnancy: Obama will work to reduce unintended pregnancy by guaranteeing equity in contraceptive coverage, providing sex education, and offering rape victims accurate information about emergency contraception.
Throughout his career, in both the Illinois Senate & the US Senate, Obama has stood up for a women's right to choose, consistently earning 100% ratings from pro-choice groups.

Voted against banning partial birth abortion
on Homosexuality
(He actually misuses the Bible!)

While, on his own web site, he states that people should use non religious support for their stance and then he changes his own stance by using, excuse me, I mean he changes his own position by "MIS"using the Bible to prove his point!
from his web site: "This brings me to my second point. Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal, rather than religion-specific, values. It requires that their proposals be subject to argument, and amenable to reason. I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God's will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all."
(It is a hard thing for me to trust a man who can not follow his own advice.)

from Catholic news agency:

""I don't think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state," said Obama. "If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans.""

(ME - Philip Turgati -
If the Senator cared at all about those that consider themselves homosexual he would tell them the truth, in a loving, caring way. That being, that while a man can love a man and a woman can love a woman, erotic love between them is unnatural by simply looking at nature. While the bodies of men and women were naturally meant to compliment one another... that isn't the case with the gay orientation. It is simple "common sense". Something that seems to be sadly lacking in a selfish world.
