Abortion, the Demcrats and Catholic Devotees Pelosi and Bidne

While it may seem that we at the Objective Conservative are a little hung up on the abortion issue, we are still scratching our heads over the the Democrat idea to have a more family oriented and friendly outlook in their platform on what we be live to be nothing more than infanticide.

We know the old mantra that you shouldn't mix politics and religion, but then in our opinion, politics should not transcend the bounds of morality. So our beliefs are based not on religion but on what is moral. We don't allow folks to murder, we don't allow folks to steal. Those are moral issues, not religious ones. So when it comes to infanticide, we believe it to be a moral issue as well--particularly since the most vulnerable of humans are unable to protect themselves or speak for themselves. Frankly, we have many that are more concerned about the rights of dogs, cats and other anmials than those of an unborn human.

But we digress:

Reinforcing our thought process, we get the following from the Catholic League about the great moral leadership of Catholics Nancy Pelosi and Joseph Biden, the latter obviously now Senator Barack Hussein Obama's running mate.

Somehow what Nancy and Joe say seems a little incongruous with not only our views but those of the Church they claim to be devoted to.

Somehow, it seems that the Democrats speak with forked tongues on the issue.

Here is what the League said:

"PELOSI DENIES CATHOLICISM OPPOSES ABORTION
On yesterday’s NBC-TV show, “Meet the Press,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked to comment on when life begins. Here is what she said: “I would say that as an ardent, practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time. And what I know is, over the centuries, the doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition.”

When Tom Brokaw told her that the Catholic Church “feels very strongly” that life begins at conception, Pelosi said, “I understand. And this is like maybe 50 years or something like that. So again, over the history of the Church, this is an issue of controversy.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded as follows:
“Here is what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: ‘Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.’ It also says, ‘Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.’ Looks like Pelosi didn’t study the subject long enough. But not to worry: We are sending her a copy of Catholicism for Dummies today (the Catechism is like maybe a bit advanced).

“Whether Joe Biden is as ignorant of what his religion teaches remains to be seen. What is not in doubt is the enthusiasm which NARAL showed when he was selected to join the ticket. The radical pro-abortion group was delighted, as were the radical pro-abortion delegates to the Democratic convention: as reported in today’s New York Times, 64 percent of Americans reject abortion-on-demand, yet only 23 percent of the delegates do. It is only fitting, then, that NARAL’s president will speak today at the Convention and Planned Parenthood’s president will speak tomorrow.

“So there we have it: the man running for president on the Democratic ticket supports selective infanticide, his running mate is a pro-abortion Catholic, the delegates are wildly out of step with Americans on abortion and the Speaker of the House hasn’t a clue what her religion teaches on the subject.”

The Democratic party isn't against abortion? What a shocking revelation.

Now... if only the Republican party weren't so pro death, then maybe some party could call themselves "pro-life" with a straight face.
