Catholic Teaching on Voting for Pro-Abortion Candidates
Part 21

A major part of the culture of death is redefining marriage to include same-sex couples. Gay marriage is one major way of preventing new life from coming into the world, aside from just being the abomination that it is.

And of course, Satan is the father of lies. For folks to claim that Obama is a pro-life candidate is to really turn truth topsy-turvy. It is simply diabolical.

So again, this election is not just about Democrats and Republicans, but is about wrong and right, about darkness and light (no puns intended), about siding with Satan or siding with Jesus. Isn't the choice for a Catholic clear? I pray so.

God bless.


Biden's Marriage of Convenience

When Sen. Joe Biden walked onto the "Ellen DeGeneres" stage to David Bowie's song "Changes," the irony wasn't lost on values voters. In the days leading up to his interview, Sen. Barack Obama's running mate has made some significant changes to his position on marriage, namely that he supports redefining it. At the Vice Presidential debate just 18 days ago this was the exchange between the candidates and moderator Gwen Ifill.

GOV. SARAH PALIN: ...I will tell Americans straight up that I don't support defining marriage as anything but between one man and one woman...I'm being as straight up with Americans as I can in my non-support for anything but a traditional definition of marriage...
IFILL: Let's try to avoid nuance, Senator. Do you support gay marriage?
BIDEN: No. Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage. We do not support that.

Last week, the Democratic candidate took a serious detour from his opposition to same-sex "marriage," telling an IN Los Angeles reporter that he opposes Proposition 8, California's marriage protection amendment. This morning on "Ellen," Biden reiterated that view and added, "If I lived in California, I'd clearly vote against Prop 8." Meanwhile, his GOP counterpart stood by her initial statements and told CBN's David Brody that she supports a federal marriage amendment. In Gov. Palin's one-on-one with Brody, she said, "...I have voted along with the vast majority of Alaskans who had the opportunity to vote to amend our Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I wish on a federal level that's where we would go because I don't support gay marriage."

Aborting Faith

In a passionate speech on what it means to be "pro-life," Archbishop Charles Chaput spoke Friday about the disservice done by Christian voters who are abandoning the abortion issue. More churchgoers seem to be twisting faith to fit their politics instead of evaluating candidates through the lens of faith. Speaking as a private citizen, Chaput talked about the crisis of conscience in this election. "I believe that Senator Obama, whatever his other talents, is the most committed 'abortion-rights' presidential candidate of either major party since the Roe v. Wade abortion decision in 1973. Despite what [others] suggest, the party platform Senator Obama runs on this year is not only aggressively 'pro-choice,' it has also removed any suggestion that killing an unborn child might be a regrettable thing. 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."
