What Catholics and like- minded Christians ought to consider before they vote next month

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

While it has been said about every election since 2000, this really is THE MOST IMPORTANT election in our lives and the history of our nation. Americans will vote for or against the candidates for President for a variety of reasons. Catholics and like- minded Christians who will vote based strictly on economic reasons would do well by considering why they should make Christian values the ultimate factor in deciding factor in how they will vote.

True Christianity requires you to yield and put your opinion aside in certain areas of life.    Christian doctrine on fundamentals such as the sanctity of life and marriage are not negotiable in a conflict between Church doctrine and a true Christian’s “feelings.”  

Reshaping and reinventing positions on the rectitude of aborting the life of an unborn child and/or the value of Gay “marriage” is not acceptable for those who wish to maintain a strong and healthy relationship with their God and His Church.

Yielding one’s own “feelings and opinions” on these issues must be the guiding principle for how the genuine Christian ought to vote. Voting for a Party whose values are antithetical to the laws of God is a trap to avoid. It makes little difference that the candidates in a particular election will fill a minor post that is not concerned with abortion or marriage. If that candidate’s Party is in open rebellion against God and His laws it is imperative that a genuine Christian not vote for anyone in that Party.

Voting for a candidate that supports Gay “marriage” and or abortion on the grounds that he/she will do “so much more good in other areas” is an empty argument. It supposes that the moral fiber of a society is negotiable and not really important. Those who would trade our social fabric for a few dollars from pro- abortion and pro-Gay “marriage” groups have shown a willingness to compromise with others whose aims are not in concert with those of a moral society.

The argument that one cannot be against abortion AND for the death penalty holds no weight.  It is based on the false premise that they are interchangeable which they are not.  While the death penalty is certainly an evil practice it is not the same as killing an innocent child. The death penalty can be supported as a justifiable self- defense mechanism for a society; abortion cannot be so justified.  

As the moral underpinnings of our nation continue to crumble Catholics and like- minded Christians have an obligation to stand in solidarity against the moral evils of abortion and same gender “marriage.” Those who are truly concerned with the state of our nation cannot pick and choice which issues they will defend. This election is far too important to allow ourselves to fall into the moral trap of supporting anyone whose Party supports the manifest twin evils of abortion and Gay “marriage.”

  1. As a Christian pastor and college prof(retired) I know I am not voting for Pope or the Salt Lake City Bishop or Rev. Wright. I am voting for the USA not the City of God. But when looking at our American heritage, history and values: though a Mormon, Romney has the values of the Judeo-Christian worldview that made America great. Obama does not. Period. When Jesus reigns on earth we will have a King. But,now we vote for a person who tries to protect our Const., national security, economic security and values. That is not Obama or anyone in the liberal camp. Period.

  2. Borders, language and culture. These are the things which make the United States the United States, yet Obama is working to destroy all three. A dedicated, America-hating Marxist sits in the White House and he MUST be removed by any means necessary. The November 6th election provides the simplest of those means.

    What a pity–or perhaps, disgrace–no elected Republican has the courage to say what I’ve just written. What a tragic comment on the political class.

  3. Part of being a Catholic (and for all Christians) is to live like one. We are never to support any evil regardless of any rationalization. As Christ said: “No man can serve two masters”. I cannot and will not force anyone to believe as I do, but I do bind myself to adhere to the moral doctrine that my Catholic Church teaches. We cannot support: “I accept what the Church teaches” and then do otherwise,as Joe Biden said in his debate. To me this is hypocrisy.

  4. Although this is aimed specifically at Christians, and I’m not one; it applies to ALL moral people, regardless of “religion”. Science shows us that when an ovum is fertilized by a sperm, in any species that procreates by heterosexual means,the result is IMMEDIATELY a genetically complete NEW individual; and this is true even in heterosexual plants. It’s no longer the MOTHER’S “tissue”, ergo, it’s infanticide to kill it. As for the homosexual community; there have always been homosexuals, and history shows us that EVERY society that has “embraced it as normal” has collapsed soon after doing so. The simple fact is that homosexual lifestyles are incompatible with human social structure, the basic unit of which is the nuclear family, which is built around procreation and preservation of the species. Further, until the APA was threatened with fiscal ruin if they listed homosexuality in the DSM IV as the behavioral disorder under which it had previously been listed in the DSM III, such individuals COULD receive treatment, the same as others with different behavioral disorders. We know learning begins at the 5th month of gestation and we don’t know precisely what all maybe involved in that learning that turns people to dysfunctional sexual behaviors, although more was being learned about it, until that pretty much got shut down by this lie. It’s time we stop the PC nonsense and CALL a baby a baby, and a homosexual a dysfunctional person who can be helped IF he/she wishes to be!

  5. Hi, er, um… Barrack Obama here and I am very proud of my support for women’s rights and know you all want to support women’s rights, too.

    If a woman doesn’t want her fetus, now you wouldn’t want to punish her with a baby! Especially if she is a registered democrat who is gonna vote for ME. Ha!

    Why, uh, er, don’t listen to Paul Ryan. When his wife’s fetus was just a little speck, he called it a bean, but, er, don’t listen to him – that’s just a trick to make you think it’s really a HUMAN bean. How stupid does he think we are? Ha, we’re not gonna fall that! Er, ah, everybody knows that’s just part of his RE-publican War on Women.

    Why, Paul Ryan even says a little ol’ accident like an unintentional live birth of a fetus ought to stand in the way of a woman’s right to choose a fourth trimester abortion! Paul Ryan, is that your fetus?! Ha! You didn’t build that! Remember, I support a woman’s right to kill her baby, er, I mean fetus, so that woman’s vote belongs to ME.

    So all you voters out there, I may have lost the first debate, but my vice president and good buddy, Joe Biden, just kicked Paul Ryan’s butt and may have put the brakes on Mitt Romney’s rise, too. That would be very good, because Romney is ahead right now in most national polls, so we need you all to kick in $5, $10, whatever you can to help us double down on Mitt Romney and get out the progressive vote.

    Times are tough, and I know it’s not always easy to come up with spare cash, but we’re talking about ME and MY election here, so I want you all to dig deep – don’t make that next mortgage payment – you can send it in to my campaign instead. Er, you’re probably under water anyway and you’ll be helping to fight the War on Women. Yeah, those are MY votes!

    Ah, ahh, I’m Barrack Obama and I deserve this message.
