The news is out: [The following is from an article written by a Christian. We are at one of those regular intervals when the subject of religious faith is allowed past the boundaries of church doors. During presidential elections, believers are expected to line up and vote based on carefully selected values that make for great campaign ads.
As a Catholic, I am well aware that as a member of the largest single religious institution in the United States, I am part of a voting bloc coveted by every candidate. But, annoyingly, Catholic voters are expected to embrace only a subset of the issues that motivate us and overlook anti-Catholic bigotry in candidates’ records that occurred when they were outside of the election spotlight.
As a Catholic, the issue central to my evaluation of every candidate is a matter of life and death — abortion. My challenge to fellow Catholics is to consider this carefully.
The science of the development of human life and the many harms of abortion for women and the preborn should be enough for us to react in horror to the loss of more than 60 million Americans since Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton wiped out legal protections for life in the womb. But for some of us, faith is an additional incentive to protect the least of these.
As Pope Francis has said, “The right to life is the first among human rights.” This truth is central to Catholic teaching throughout time. Psalm 139:13-14 notes: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”]
I always get a laugh reading anything from a Christian who wants to talk about morality, abortion, sanctity of life, especially if it’s a man. If you were not part of the conception, stay the F out of people’s lives.
Any statement from Christians reeks of stupidity and hypocrisy. Sanctity of life, my ass. These scums would rape a fetus and continue to fleece uneducated believers from birth until way past death.
It’s quite stupid for the pope to mention Psalm 139:13-14 notes: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. God supposedly created everyone in the mother’s womb, yet bails out when it’s time to protect the fetus from an abortion.
The pope and every single Catholic should read the damn bible. I understand why it is convenient for the pope and every single Christian to avoid quoting other verses of the bible in reference to children. May I remind the morons of
Hosea 13: 16 Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.
Amos 1:13 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:
Numbers 31:17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
Psalm 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
Most wars, the Crusades, the Inquisition, 9-11, arranged marriages to minors, blowing up girls schools, circumcision, clitoral mutilation, oppression of women and homosexuals, fatwas, ethnic cleaning, honor rapes, human sacrifices, burning witches, disemboweling Native Americans, suicide bombings, Jihads, condoning slavery, murdering negroes, the systematic fucking of little children, all above caused by RELIGION. So don’t come to me with your wussy Catholic fake tears.
