Politicians making a mockery of my faith

Politicians making a mockery of my faith

Call me a cradle-to-grave Catholic, but I am astonished, bewildered, flabbergasted, perplexed, even PO'd with some Catholic politicians making a mockery of my faith.

Former congressional Speaker of the House Democrat Nancy Pelosi (a Catholic supposedly) of far left liberal northern California, recently got the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood. Need I mention PP is an abortion mill? Need I mention Sanger, the infamous eugenist, has no moral qualms about abortions. Need I mention the Catholic Church is dead set "against" abortions?

Pelosi (while accepting the wolf in sheep's clothing award) said pro-lifers were dumb. That, of course, includes Catholics. Then she follows up with sending a rosary to be blessed by Pope Francis through Obama during his visit to the Vatican. No Nancy, Pope Francis is not a liberal as some liberal media tried to make him out to be on same-sex marriage -- and abortion.

Before going any further, let me say there are many Protestant denominations I greatly admire who are just as adamant about pro-life and traditional marriage as my chosen church. The evangelical movement is alive and well and playing a significant role in trying to put the brakes on an out-of-control secular culture. Evangelicals are working hard to restore Christianity in this country as we have known it since the American Revolution, while liberals (even Dem politicians) are working like crazy to do just the opposite.

The Nancy Pelosis of my church have got to go. Calling herself a Catholic is hypocrisy, and church leadership has got to do more about it.

Sad to say, there are a whole bunch of Catholic Pelosi clones in our government. There's Vice President Joe Biden, who had high praise for China's one-child-mass abortions policy. There's Secretary of State John Kerry, who supports abortion and would not support the Defense of Marriage Act no more than does Obama. Sens. Dick Durbin, Pat Leahy, Joe Biden and deceased Ted Kennedy were on the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2005 when Catholic John Roberts was up for nomination to the Supreme Court. And, would you believe those four CINOs (Catholics in name only) screamed and hollered not to accept Roberts for fear "Catholic" Roberts would overturn Roe vs. Wade that legalized abortion. Go figure.

Ironically, had the aforementioned group succeeded in nixing Robert's nomination, this country would be better off for it. Roberts became another liberal as he schemed to find an excuse to make Obamacare constitutional by calling it a tax. Obamacare, thanks to Roberts, takes away the religious rights of those not wanting to pay for birth control, or worst of all abortions. The 70-some lawsuits against Obamacare being unconstitutional on religious grounds could have been avoided had Roberts voted with his conservative colleagues instead of the liberals, which included another CINO on the court by the name of Sotomayor.

All Christian pro-lifers and traditional marriage advocates should be up in arms about all the liberal politicians standing this country on its head culturally. If killing the unborn, and marriage of any kind imaginable, isn't destroying our culture, I don't know what is. Need I say which political party is destroying our great culture of the past -- and sadly it's with the help of too many that claim to be Catholic.

I would be remiss not to mention CINO Sebelius, former governor of Kansas and former friend of late-term abortionist George Killer Tiller. Our retired U.S. Secretary of Health and Inhuman Services Sebelius, with the help of Barack Obama, has decimated the First Amendment of our Constitution. Why in the world would a person claiming to be Catholic force other Catholics (or other religious groups) to support birth control -- and abortions -- through Obamacare?

What can our government of today give us that possibly could be more important than life and family? Three million babies a year lose their lives and never will experience family.
