Wrong on Life

"Abortion is a foundational issue; it is not an issue like housing policy or the price of foreign oil. It always involves the intentional killing of an innocent life, and it is always, grievously wrong." – Archbishop of Denver Charles Chaput

When I voted for John McCain and Sarah Palin I thought that it was important to recognize the historic gravity of this election and stated that I would soon post on the issues that prompted me to not support Barack Obama. the first issue being Life.

Obama is Wrong on Life

I have heard from many well meaning friends that this is just one issue. That is true, but the pursuit of life is so fundamental to America, the sanctity of life to crucial to having a culture of life, protection of the most helpless and innocent of any of us is so fundamental to who we are as a people and especially as a people that will be held accountable to God for how we vote. Yes, I am a Christian – and I don’t apologize for that.

I think that the catholic Archbishop of Denver put it best:

If we claim to be Catholic, then American Catholics, including public officials who describe themselves as Catholic, need to act accordingly. We need to put an end to Roe and the industry of permissive abortion it enables. Otherwise all of us – from senators and members of Congress, to Catholic laypeople in the pews – fail not only as believers and disciples, but also as citizens.

I hope to post on Financial Stewardship, Individual Rights, Religious Freedom and Corruption soon!
