Swept under the rug

September 22nd, 2010, Promulgated by Abaccio

I am sure all of you have heard dozens of stories on the blocking of the Dems’ latest baby, a Military Appropriations Bill that seeks to repeal the 1993 law commonly known as Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which effectively bans open homosexuals from serving in the US Military.    This also contained a cleverly titled idea from Majority Leader Harry Reid (engaged in a neck-and-neck battle for re-election)  called DREAM.  DREAM would grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants if they have spent two years in college or military service, arrived in the US prior to age 16, have a HS diploma, and have been here at least 5 years.

Swept under the rug, however, in this entire process has been an amendment sponsored by Roland Burris which would lift the ban on elective abortions in military facilities.  That’s right, folks, the scandal-ridden successor to Barrack Obama as Illinois’ Junior Senator has shown once again the EXACT agenda of these pondscum-government sponsored abortion on demand.

In addition to being morally reprehensible, this would be yet another burden on our service men and women–the last time abortions were allowed in military facilities (from 1993-1996) a very large number of military doctors and nurses left, thereby hurting the ACTUAL medical care of our troops!

As always, folks, you CANNOT be Catholic and pro-abortion, and you CANNOT in good conscience vote for anyone who makes it their goal to support pseudo-healthcare in the form of the murder of the unborn.  Remember that as you vote this fall.  It is non-negotiable.

    And since you’re raising the issues again,I will once more affirm my stand that Catholic teaching is completely right on homosexuality and completely wrong on abortion.

    And the media is painting the Republicans as being against equality. There is much more to this bill than repealing “Don’t ask, don’t tell” as you have clearly laid out.

    Louis E., the Catholic Church is completely right on both homosexuality and abortion. Of course, in this diocese, it would be difficult to even know what the Church teaches and the reasons for the teachings. Abortion not only destroys a life, but it also deeply wounds the mother and father. Those of us actively involved in trying to help mothers who are being pressured to abort know this. What’s especially disturbing in this diocese is how little official support the diocese gives to pro-life efforts. This sin of omission leads many Catholics to abortion clinics, some actually taking jobs at these places of death and degradation. It makes a big difference in a positive way when even one priest speaks from the pulpit about the Church teaching on these issues- thank God there are a few courageous ones in the diocese who defend life even with the risk of hostility and contempt from the leadership of this diocese.

    A majority of the American people now identify as “pro-life.” Whether or not a person agrees with the Church’s position on abortion, I don’t think we should be using federal or state tax money to fund something that so many find objectionable. Parenthetically, I do realize that there are different levels of “comfort” within the pro-life label. What is particularly obnoxious about this item is that they(politicians) try to sneak it into an appropriations bill. This is exactly the kind of political machinations with which so many of us are frustrated.

    I hadn’t seen that part of the bill, thank you for bringing it to light. Time to write our congressmen again. And yes, a Catholic is one who believes, proclaims and obeys all the the Church teaches. Those who don’t are, well, non-Catholics.

    What happens to the undocumented migrant mother who is pregnant and is not allowed medical care? Is that respecting the life of the unborn? Didn’t Jesus command us to welcome the stranger? True Catholic teaching supports the dignity of life in all its stages. It is neither Democrat or Republican. Catholic heirarchy needs to pull itself out of political partisanship and instead work to inform public policy–which is what our Holy Father asks us to do.
