Why do some Catholics trust Obama to carry out our mission?

By John Malett

Rather than continue to rehash the story of pedophile priests and old, out of touch white men to denigrate the Catholic Church and attack it for teaching as Jesus taught, why don’t heterodox Catholics provide some insight into how they came to accept the Marxist/socialist agenda of Barack Obama to guide their lives rather than the doctrine of the church?

Why do they trust Obama to decide how the church is to carry out its mission?

Explain why a Catholic believes that confiscating the nation’s wealth and letting the government redistribute it is more desirable than voluntarily sharing in the works of mercy that are integral parts of Catholic social teaching.

Show us a program initiated by the Obama administration that does a better job on a day-to-day basis of feeding, sheltering, teaching, healing, counseling and tending to the needs of the world’s poorest of the poor, minorities, immigrants and disenfranchised than the Catholic schools, hospitals, clinics, churches and charities.

I suspect the real cause of our liberal Catholics’ discontent lies not with social justice but with civil rights, especially women’s rights as they pertain to abortion on demand. Why no concern for the civil rights of millions of little girls who are aborted every year because they failed the “being wanted test”?

Mostly I would like to know how a Catholic comes to condone sacrificing the life of an unborn child for any economic or social policy.

    Excellent post. Questions also apply to Protestants.

    I am against abortion because of medical science. Historically, due to religious beliefs, most people believed life began at first breath; God breathed life into Adam. When I was a child, my Aunt had a miscarriage and she had a full funeral for him, which caused alot of raised eye brows amongst everyone else.

    I am not Catholic, but I was told long ago that Catholics believed in a 40 / 60 day rule. Having Google, I looked it up and it does show that was Canon Law -“Concordia discordantium canonum” dating back to the 12th Century, which remained until 1917 Code of Canon Law began.

    A friend who’s a priest in Louisiana is an Obama supporter. When we asked him why, he said Obama’s policies are good for the country. Huh???????
