Sounds strange to many of you, doesn’t it. “But, the Republican party is pro-life! They have fought abortion tooth and nail!” Really? Have they? They sure put on a good show. But let’s pay more attention than someone who watches television on a regular basis, shall we? Republicans had complete, absolute control of the white house for several years when Bush was president. It was so bad that Democrats were not even allowed to have meetings. The Republicans actually had so much power that the Democrats had to go to a basement room to have a meeting, instead of using the chamber. The majority party would not allow them to use the chamber. Republicans had a span of about three years when they could have passed any law they wanted, and they did. They passed so many laws it would make your head spin, if you were paying attention instead of watching American Idol or whatever the heck is on the idiot box these days. But they didn’t pass a single law that came anywhere close to stopping abortion. WHY?
I’ll tell you why. Republicans need abortion. There, I said it. With their anti-poor, anti-health, anti-middle-class, anti-peace, pro-big government, pro-war and death and corporate plutocracy stance, an anti-abortion platform is the only thing that ensures they will ever get enough votes to win a single election. They know that a false claim to Christianity (they are all Masonic, Skull&Bones, Bohemian Grove pagans just like the Democrats) and advocacy for “life” (while they support endless wars, assassinations, no welfare or healthcare, and the death penalty) is the only hope they have, and the only reason their lies still work is because their base is too ignorant or stupid to look at even a decade of history, let alone five, to see that they have been duped for so long.
I’m sorry if this truth hurts. But it is the truth. So what happens now? How about this. How about all the Catholics and protestants and pro-lifers and anyone else that has Christian morals and values just leave the whole mess behind. Quit the Republican party. Let’s start a new party. A Catholic party. A party that will take Christian stance in all things, helping the poor and helpless, protecting the unborn, limiting government, and practicing a wise, peaceful foreign policy that will not make us enemies on every side. We can do this. Or have Christians in America really abandoned Christ and become the psychotic idiots that are seen at teabag rallies and soldiers’ funerals across the country more and more these days?

This Catholic News Agency report about American morality does not come as much of a surprise. According to a Gallup poll, a majority of Americans find divorce, premarital sex, stem cell research, and the death penalty morally acceptable. It’s not surprising to me for the reason that I have always seen American media at the forefront of the fight to demoralize and secularize our citizens, especially young people. It’s also not surprising that, while a majority still sees abortion as morally unacceptable (thank God and the Blessed Virgin), that same majority sees the death penalty as acceptable. This hypocrisy seems to also stem from the media, who glorify crime and punishment, and seem to advocate a culture of death in everything they do. This culture of death was seen recently in the celebrations shown across the country at the news of the murder of Osama bin Laden. Many have a right to feel relieved at the thought of a dangerous criminal facing justice, preferably with a trial, but to celebrate murder is something Americans used to be too good to do. We used to celebrate the end of wars, not the death of those responsible. But when our leaders tell us that the ‘war’ we are involved in will never end (anyone ever read Orwell’s classic, 1984?), I guess the death of one of our enemies is the only thing we have to celebrate.
One way for Americans to stop the culture of death and immorality from spreading is to turn off the television and educate themselves and their children. Catholics especially need to pay more attention to the Church’s teachings on these areas, and accept those teachings as the word of God.

According to Archbishop Javier del Rio of Arequipa, Peru, Catholics cannot vote for candidates who are openly pro-abortion or support abortion. We already knew that, so it’s not as though the Archbishop is telling us anything new. But what most Catholics do not know, is that, despite their rhetoric and campaign promises, many so-called conservatives in this country are not, in fact, “anti-abortion” or “pro-life”. They will say they are, but when it comes down to it, if they have the chance to end legalized abortion for good, they won’t do it. Why? They need it. I give as an example the Bush administration. For several years Republicans, most if not all of whom claimed a pro-life stance, had complete control of the country. They had the ability to pass any law they wanted without fear of it being stricken down by the incredibly weak Democratic wing. And they did pass many laws that otherwise would have faced serious challenges. Bush’s White House could have ended abortion. You know it, and I know it. But they didn’t even try. Because, my friends, the abortion issue is the biggest vote-getter for the Republican party. If abortion were made illegal, then all of a sudden the only hot-button issue Repubs would have is gay marriage, and who really cares as much about that as abortion? No, Republicans will NEVER end abortion because without it, they will ALWAYS lose elections. Republicans deliberately keep abortion legal so they have it as an emotional issue to influence your votes.
I don’t know about you, but this disgusts me. Along with that, their incredibly draconian military and prison/industrial complex, with their ant-health, anti-education, anti-children, anti-Christian charity stance, means that good, faithful Catholics like us, cannot really vote for anyone. Well, we can certainly vote for a Catholic candidate who promises to be faithful to the Church. And we can vote for third party members who are actually serious about government and not just power and money, or serving some corporation (another very non-Catholic idea. A company is not a person. It is a creation of man, not of God). But I, as a truly faithful Catholic, cannot vote for a Republican any more than for a pro-abortion Democrat. I have known too many of them, and have seen right through them. In fact, I will vote for a pro-life Democrat, if one exists, rather than a so-called pro-life Republican. Republicans are pro-death. They want everyone to die or rot in prison, preferably making them some money in the process. No, good, faithful Catholics cannot vote for anyone that represents the two-party scam that has been perpetrated on the American people.
