“A person is a person, no matter how small.”
There is nothing in this world that can make me believe it is okay to kill a baby, even if said baby hasn’t been born yet. I am a mother. I know what it is like to FEEL LIFE move inside of me. Men, I’m sorry that ya’ll miss out on that, but believe me, it’s very real. Freedom of choice? Sure. Keep your pants on!!! Rape? Well, ask anyone who has tried for years without success to conceive a child. They will tell you how difficult it can be, under perfect circumstances, for that tiny seed to take hold. It is extremely rare for a rape to end in pregnancy. If it does, then don’t punish the baby!! There are thousands of couples who would love to adopt that innocent child!!
All that to say: I absolutely, rack my brain though I might, cannot figure out why Obama is so determined to kill off as many preborn babies as he possibly can. Honestly, can’t he think of something better to do? Aren’t the economy and his plans for world domination enough to keep him occupied for a while? Never mind all the other issues. He is so brazenly open about promoting abortion it’s actually shocking to me. It boggles my mind that this man (and those who support him) are so eager to KILL. And this is just the first step. . . When human life ceases to have value, beware. Your own life will be very expendable, too, just like those poor defenseless babies.
But, the fact remains that there will always be folks on opposite sides of the fence. We will always find something to disagree on. Yet someone, somewhere, has to take a stand for what is absolutely right. And by the same token, they must take a stand against what is absolutely wrong. And, yes, I firmly believe that right and wrong are absolutes. Relativism is crap.
As Christians, we believe that abortion is absolutely wrong. The Catholic Church has made it VERY CLEAR that as Catholic Christians, we DO NOT, IN ANY WAY, CONDONE ABORTION. We uphold the sanctity of ALL LIFE, young, old, or preborn. Nancy Pelosi went so far as to challenge the Pope on this subject, and tried to say that even Saint Augustine said abortion was okay. (I’m not going to state directly what I think about Nancy Pelosi. Suffice it to say that I think she has the brains God gave an ice cube!!) The Holy Father set her straight. Well, he tried to. He clearly stated that abortion is wrong, evil, and that the Church does not condone it. Pelosi’s mind is so twisted that she didn’t seem to get the message that common lab rats all around the world understood.
So, this abortion thing and the Catholic Church have been in the news a LOT lately. You would think, then, that Fr. Jenkins, President of Notre Dame University, would have noticed, and had the decency to invite someone who doesn’t passionately and aggressively oppose one of the most important social stands of the Catholic Church to speak at commencement. But no. He has chosen to commit Obamination.
There is an online petition to Fr. Jenkins to rescind his invitation to Obama to speak at commencement and “honor” him with an honorary law degree, and it is receiving over 270 signatures per hour. I’m thinking that’s a pretty clear sign that Americans, especially Catholics, are not okay with this. Why in the world would Our Lady’s University give audience to such a man??? I don’t care if he is the first African-American president. (And, PLEASE remember: only HALF of him is African-American. The other half of him is WHITE.)
Now, if Warren-Wilson College invited Obama to speak, nobody would care. They are consistently voted the most liberal college in the nation. Their “worldview” meshes perfectly with Obama’s. If Berkley invited him, that would make perfect sense. But NOT Notre Dame. In fact, it is a direct act of disobedience to the mandate given by the USCCB in 2004 in:
“Catholics in Political Life”: “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”
