I am a Catholic...

"Not all moral issues have the same moral weight as abortion and euthanasia. There may be legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not... with regard to abortion and euthanasia."
- Pope Benedict XVI

...and for me no issue is as clear or as important as voting for life. Yep, that means I am anti-abortion. That means I am not going to be swayed by the other issues that in my opinion only serve to deflect the true debate that should be happening in this country, respect for and support for life.

If we have a culture that supports all life, then we would have no need of the fluff n stuff arguments for health care and the plethora of social programs that already exist in this country to help care for the ones among us who for whatever reason live in less than desirable circumstances.

In any case, abortion is not the answer. Abortion must not be the answer. Abortion is murder and murder is evil. What I cannot understand are all the headlines I see that state Catholics are supporting Obama in numbers higher than for Kerry. How in the hell do you get there? Or maybe hell and hell's VIP is the reason. Is this the end result of years of cafeteria Catholicism? Do you understand the difference between intrinsic evil and misguided social programs? If a candidate has ALL the right answers for healthcare, poverty, medicare but is still a supporter of abortion, then he or she is the WRONG candidate for a Catholic. If you vote for an abortionist, then you excommunicate yourself.

Did you pay attention to Obama in the video? The first thing he says he is going to do is sign into law the Freedom of Choice Act--which will immediately erase 35 years of attempts to protect the least among us, the tiny helpless unborn children. This law will strike down ALL laws that are supposed to protect the unborn, including the monstrous practice known as partial birth abortion.
