50 U. S. Bishops: "No to Obama!"


50 U. S. Bishops: "No to Obama!"

The Tablet has an interesting article by Rocco Palmo claiming that 50 U.S. Bishops - about one fourth of the total - have said that the most important issue for Catholics when voting should be abortion.

A quarter of America's bishops have said that the most important issue for voters in the forthcoming presidential election is abortion - comments that may help boost the fortunes of Republican candidate John McCain.

Some 50 out of the nation's 197 active bishops have published articles or given interviews during the run-up up to the election urging abortion as the key issue on which voters should decide which way to vote. ...

Bishop Robert Hermann of St. Louis, for example, wrote in St. Louis Review, that "the issue of life is the most basic issue and must be given priority over the issue of the economy, the issue of war or any other issue."

He said "Saving our children or killing our children. This is the overriding issue facing each of us. All other issues ... have to take second place to the issue of life."

As I've been saying all along, the other issues are important, but the killing of approximately 1 million children a year trumps the others.

Good for the bishops!

All pro-life voters should only vote pro-life.

Since the Democratic Party is anti-life, as are most Democratic politicians, we should all vote Republican.

Everyone should vote for John McCain for President and Republican candidates for House and Senate.

If Obama takes power, it will be vital to have as many Republicans in Congress as possible to stop the damaging Democratic economic and social agenda.

It is especially critical to hold as many Republican Senate seats as we ca. We MUST hold 41 Senate seats so Republicans can filibuster damaging Democratic legislation.

McCain and the Republicans are not perfect but they are the only line of defense we now have to stop the anti-life tide.
