You obviously thought long and hard about this open letter to the students. But you neglected to mention one repeated complaint, namely that the trip was never presented to the students as an effort to support Obama. Big why let the facts get in the way of your opinion.
Ken, I’m not sure where you’re getting your facts from. Even the CBC is reporting that students were scheduled to make telephone calls on behalf Obama’s “get out the vote” program. There simply isn’t any room for debate over whether this was a pro-Obama trip. That ship sailed a long time ago. The question now is simply whether a pro-Obama trip was appropriate. (Source)
Indeed, the ship has long sailed. Let’s all stop trying to give the other side the benefit of the doubt. They don’t care that Obama is the most pro-abortion president ever – even worse than Slick Willy. He is doing more to kill the unborn both in the U.S. and internationally (especially in Africa and using foreign aid as a stick to do it!) than anyone in history. These are facts which are beyond dispute, and very well known and very widely reported in pro-family media outlets.
We are reaping the rewards of failed Catholic teaching to educate our children and youth on what it is to be Catholic. Today, every jackass has an opinion on what being Catholic really means, and they think that everyone’s opinion is equally valid. But that’s not what Catholicism is about. Either you’re Catholic and actually believe what the Faith teaches, or you’re not and you don’t. And if you’re not, then have the courage to admit it and move on.
Supporting a pro-abortion politician when you have a choice means you are not Catholic, much less coherent.
Abortion is murder. Stop pimping for advocates of murder.
It doesn’t matter that Obama is a good socialist and promises the moon, wind and stars, which by the way, is also condemned by the Catholic Church.
