What you claim is just not true. We now have SC Judges Alito and Roberts who will probably vote to overturn Roe v Wade. We also have made illegal the brutal partial birth abortion procedure. They are major milestones in the in the pro-life movement in a deeply divided Congress. Hillary or Obama will make that procedure legal again and if any of them are elected they will. I doubt they will appoint judges to the SC who will overturn Roe v Wade. The Democratic party does not have pro-life on its platform and has fought against every piece of pro-life legislation ever put forward. Sen. Casey from PA professes to be a pro-life Catholic Democrat has not voted as he has promised on these issues after his recent election. This makes him a hypocrite and liar who shames the memory of his father the late Gov. Bob Casey. The Democratic party would not let Gov. Casey speak at the 1992 Democratic National Convention because of his strong pro-life stances. This is not the side any professing faithful Catholic wants to be on as the Vatican has stated clearly and champions. Being an enabler of the pro-abortion movement makes one an accessory. Our laws are based upon Judeo-Christian ethics (God's Laws)recognize an accessory to a crime as guilty of it. I believe God holds every man accountable to the extent where we have a say therefore we as voters have to stand with those who uphold the truth and the proven record of performance.

Valerie ..I hope I am not too harsh.The more I read and educate myself the clearer it becomes that a vote for Obama or Clinton is inconsistent with Catholic beliefs.If you or I are willing to trade the lives of the most innocent for the Pied Piper(s)of the poor and disenfranchised then we are no different than the Scribes and Pharisees who gained their lives and that of most of their followers by betraying the life of the One who had come to save them all. May God forgive us if we elect a candidate as Godless as Clinton or Obama!

Another name for Liberation Theology is Christian Socialism or Christian Communism and we know you cannot mix the godless teachings of atheists like Karl Marx and Freidrich Engles with the teachings of Jesus Christ but this is what has happened and this is also what our Lord prophesied on how the message would be compromised by false teachers and prophets. The result of mixing of these two unrelated ideals produces a perverted alternate gospel which Paul highly condemned and said that anyone who does this let them be anathema to the Church. Look and see on wikipedia who is a liberation theologian, one Jeremiah Wright who is the pastor of Barack Hussein Obama. Check out that church of his which gives awards to arch-racist and hate merchant Louis Farrakhan. Should Churches that call themselves Christian embrace Farrakhan or shun him until he repents? People need to do their research and see these what these communists parading as Christians are all about. There is no such thing as a good communist or socialist no matter how benign they appear to be. They are wolves in sheeps clothing whose ideas are dangerous and they use the name of Christ to give them respectability and deflect criticism. Every communist and socialist of note has a pattern of totalitarianism and supreme evil (i.e. Stalin, Mao, Castro, Guevara, Ortega, Kim Jong Il, Mussolini, Hitler, Mugabe etc.) We should carefully study 2 Peter 2 and be totally sober of what God will do to false prophets such as these and those who follow them shall share their gruesome fate. These are not easy things to say but we have to say these things because they are the facts and these issues have both substantial temporal and eternal consequences.

We find Obama frightening and his pro-abortion stance is heretical, against Church teaching and against the Word of God. You cannot be pro-abortion and Christian. If you don't like it. Go tell God his word is false. Obama supporters had a picture of Che Guevara a well known Communist thug on a Cuban Flag in one of his campaign offices in Houston. Che Guevara is also the poster boy for "Liberation Theology" a movement denounced by Pope John Paul II as heretical. Hillary/Obama will set America back. Their taxation plans will propel our economy into deeper recession and their surrender attitude will only embolden our enemies to attack us further. They are Jimmy Carter redux who was an abject disaster as POTUS. Jimmy gave us a 23% prime rate, 10.2% unemployment on a national level, and a foreign policy of weakness and appeasment. The middle class and poor sure can't return to conditions like that.

The Obama movement is a good thing if you are a godless communist or socialist. All Catholics who vote for Obama risk self-excommunication because of Obama's fanatical support for infanticide. He is charismatic but has little substance and his lack of experience is dangerously risky for the times we are living in.

By the time the liberal mainstream press has completed its full scale blitzrieg attack on him from every angle(Check the NY Times..its already begun) the American mainstream voter will rise up in droves and McCain will win easily over either Dem candidate. McCain is flawed but he is still the only choice for us who hate abortion and love our country.

I think Katelyn comparing Hillary to Mary is to say that God believed a woman could be responsible for a huge role, birthing and raising His son, and therefore a woman is a viable person for the job of our President. If that’s the case I agree completely. If a woman who was the right candidate was running, I wouldn't hesitate to vote for her. Its just Hillary isn't the right candidate, pro-choice, wants to socialize healthcare, raise taxes, etc. Plus, she isn't all that experience just being the wife of the president. If you want someone to fix the "problem" in Iraq, McCain has the military know-how to do so. He knew from the beginning that Rumfield’s new strategy of quick victory with minimal ground troops was flawed and is why he pushed for more troops being sent to Iraq. He understood then when you defeat your enemy you must keep them in prison, where as, Rumsfield didn't have enough troops there to do this so they took the guns of the enemy and sent them back to the homes, which is why we had so much guerilla warfare after Sadaam was captured. It wasn't Bush's mess up it was Rumsfield’s, and Bush just got hurt because he was loyal to him. I mean you couldn't expect Bush, who was elected to fix the education and social issues (ie abortion) in this country, to be an expert in foreign policy. In 2000 he never said he was and wasn't elected because he was so he had to trust the man he thought had that knowledge, Rumsfield.

Being Pro-Abortion is a mighty big flaw Katelyn, and one that CANNOT be overlooked. Also, while I'm no big fan of McCain, he has more experience than Hillary and Obama combined.
And I don't quite understand how you can compare Hillary Clinton to the Blessed Mother. I will echo part of your statement though while putting an addition on the end, let's have clear heads and pray for the conversion of Hillary.

I would argue that both democratic candidates are rather weak, but in this year that is heavily slated against Republicans they have a good chance of winning. Obama is extremely far left, who is only using rhetoric to gain the moderate vote for now; however, once the issues are more portrayed he will lose that support and his ‘cult’ following will be lessened. Hillary though more moderate than Obama has little chance of receiving the moderate vote because she is so unlikable. However, since many issues are going against the Republicans, Iraq and the economy, they are benefiting. The disappointing thing is even if both of these issues improve the media won’t talk about it. If McCain can secure and excite the conservative base I think he has a good chance of winning, though that might be difficult. I supported Huckabee early on because of his pro-life stance and other issues, but in reality McCain, who has a 100% Pro-Life voting record in the Senate, isn’t a bad choice either. Hopefully others will come around because to allow the far left to put Supreme Court judges on the bench means there will be no chance of reversing Roe vs Wade.

Donald- I agree, I don't think McCain is a very strong GOP candidate. I'm not sure either why Sam Brownback would have backed McCain (unless for reasons of personal gain). I've always liked Sen. Brownback, but I was disappointed that he didn't support the most pro-life candidate.

THere is never a free lunch, be it free health care or otherwise. Universal health care just pushes this country closer and closer to socialist states like Cuba and Canada, where personal responsibility is thrown out the window in favor of defaulting to total government control of one's lives.

She is without morals, principals, a faith that matters. She is also without a femininity that any man can appreciate. I hope she wins, so she can ultimately lose. Better to be for the Hillbillies, than for Obama who doesn't have a clue about anything, nor any basic principals that would allow him to eventually have a clue about anything. He is a hot air balloon waiting to pop. At least the Hillbillies will fight hard enough to secure the nod, but encourage more conservatives to vote so they will lose, the clinton machine didn't come this far only to be pushed aside by some upstart punk. God bless America. Roma locuta est, causa finata est! GS
