Catholics and Politics

November 11, 2006

It concerns me that, according to the New York Times, 56% of the Catholics who voted in this Novembers elections voted in favor of the Democrat Candidates.   What I am concerned about is, where does the issue of Pro-Life fall in the list of priorities of America’s Catholic population? 

I was raised in a Catholic, Democrat home and fully appreciate what the Democratic party stands for (or stood for in the 50’s – 70’s), and how Woe VS Wade has effected the party deliniations.  Being a Catholic, before all other affiliations, I find it hard to understand how any Catholic can reconsile themselves with the Democratic party with it’s pro-choice stance.   It disturbs me to think that economics, gay rights or foreign policy outweighs the mass murder of millions of innocent babies. 

I have heard the term “Abomination of Desolation”, a term used in the bible that has no direct definition attributed to it, used in reference to the proliferation of crimes being commited against all children, including those murdered by abortion.  I can’t help but believe that this may not be so far off the mark.

I would like to challange all Catholics to examine their priorities before voting in the next election, or any election.  Where does human life place in your list of prioirities.? If you are going to belong to a faith, then live by it.
