Considering how many Protestants it takes to outvote all of the Catholics, he’ll need to do better than 10,000

10,000 huh…How about the MILLIONS of Catholics AND Protestants who see Obama as the most pro-abortion candidate on the scene? Then we have another choice, John McCain, who’s big into embryonic stem cell research, a technology which has been surpassed by adult stem cell research as a viably useful procedure. Either way, we have two interesting choices. 1: A candidate who is a leading advocate for legal human sacrifice. and 2: A candidate who feels human lives should be a commodity to be experimented upon.
Then you have those who complain that Catholics are “single issue voters”(not even in the ballpark, by the way). These same people then rant and rave about Iraq. And WE’RE single issue voters?

Actually Adult Stem Cell research isn’t the same. For one, its much more difficult to maintain the cell lines. Also embryonic stems have been used to create beating heart muscle cells, this is much more difficult to do with Adult stem cells – so their is obviously a difference in pliability between the two. Also anyone who complains about embryonic stem cell research and not In Vitro Fertilization is a blazing hypocrite – and people who oppose the use of unused blastocystes from In Vitro Fertilization are a gaping void of immorality big enough to drive Jupiter through it.
“1: A candidate who is a leading advocate for legal human sacrifice.”
That sounds an awful Godly to me.
“At that time the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, and he went throughout the land of Gilead and Manasseh, including Mizpah in Gilead, and led an army against the Ammonites. And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD. He said, “If you give me victory over the Ammonites, I will give to the LORD the first thing coming out of my house to greet me when I return in triumph. I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering. So Jephthah led his army against the Ammonites, and the LORD gave him victory. He thoroughly defeated the Ammonites from Aroer to an area near Minnith – twenty towns – and as far away as Abel-keramim. Thus Israel subdued the Ammonites. When Jephthah returned home to Mizpah, his daughter – his only child – ran out to meet him, playing on a tambourine and dancing for joy. When he saw her, he tore his clothes in anguish. “My daughter!” he cried out. “My heart is breaking! What a tragedy that you came out to greet me. For I have made a vow to the LORD and cannot take it back.” And she said, “Father, you have made a promise to the LORD. You must do to me what you have promised, for the LORD has given you a great victory over your enemies, the Ammonites. But first let me go up and roam in the hills and weep with my friends for two months, because I will die a virgin.” “You may go,” Jephthah said. And he let her go away for two months. She and her friends went into the hills and wept because she would never have children. When she returned home, her father kept his vow, and she died a virgin. So it has become a custom in Israel for young Israelite women to go away for four days each year to lament the fate of Jephthah’s daughter.”
Judges 11 29-40
I think that the single issue is in reference to religion. Voting solely based on your religious (a)morality.

The church and I are praying for all of you. You may be calling yourself a Catholic but if you don’t follow the teaching of the Church you Ex-communicate youself and are no longer a Catholic.
You must seek confession and repent of your errant ways.
Glory Be To God, Now and Forever! Amen!

I agree with 10,000 Catholics for Obama, that abortion has been used by the republican party to woo voters. It is not the only issue. Look at the big picture – abortion, war, the economy, energy independence, american jobs for mothers and fathers, honesty and integrity. We were lied to about the war, is that christian? Abortion is something we can all do something about. Talk to your friends about adoption. Pray for young women to make the right choices. Get out and do something about it. Vote Obama for the big picture and because he wants to promote adoption and reduce abortion.
