I can handle people who wish to vote for Obama for a second term. I don't understand their thinking but I know that there are many people out there who believe in him and believe he's best for the country or they want his brand of politics to become the norm (socialism, etc). I get all that and I am not going to argue with them or try to stop them from voting the way they feel is right.
However, there is one thing I cannot take. That is those people who consider themselves faithful Catholics. They consider themselves loyal to the Church and to the Pope but still are going to vote for Obama.
As Catholics, the most important issue is that of Life. As John Paul II said so eloquently (and much better than I could ever say.) "Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights -- for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture -- is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination" (Christifideles Laici, 1988)
How can you call yourself a Catholic, attend Catholic functions, proclaim to be members of Catholic groups all while voting for the most pro-abortion president this country has ever seen. He is the most biblically-hostile president in history.
Obama has been at war with the Catholic Church since he first started in Chicago and it continues today.
How can these people live with themselves and vote with a clear conscience?! I just can't take it, I have started un-friending Catholics on Facebook who promote themselves as loyal to the Church all while voting for this president. I must have standards and stick with my principles or else I cannot stand for anything.
If you are among this group of Catholics for Obama. Feel free to unfriend me because when I eventually find out your stance, I won't have to do it myself.
