CatholicVote.com video.

Leaving Mass this morning, I encountered a fellow Catholic wearing an Obama button.
When I pointed out to her Obama's pro abortion / pro infanticide vote she was unfazed.
Words cannot express my outrage. Rather than try and put it into words, I will simply post this video from CatholicVote.com

Yesterday I received an email with a "grassroots video" produced by Catholicvote.com.

The video and website, Catholicvote.com were produced by Fidelis. They have very strong ties to the Republican Party and to the McCain campaign. In February of this year they issued a press release endorsing John McCain for president and their website includes articles from Deal Hudson who is an advisor to the McCain campaign as a member of the “Catholic Outreach Committee”. They have given campaign contributions only to republicans and even supported republican Senator Rick Santorum over Bob Casey, a pro-life Catholic democrat, during the 2006 election cycle.

If you forward this video or link to the website in your official capacity you may be in violation of IRS regulations and Church policy. You will also be distributing materials that contradict Church teaching.

Among other things, the video glorifies US economic and military power. This runs contrary to Catholic Social Teaching which emphasizes a preferential option for the poor and solidarity. It also runs contrary to the Cathecism which teaches us that "Respect for and development of human life require peace."

There is more than one intrinsic evil at issue this year. They include genocide, racism, torture, targeting non-combatants and engaging in unjust wars. They are all life issues and they all require our attention as Catholics.

Whether we vote Republican or Democrat this year what defines us is that we are Catholic.

Don't let the political parties redefine what it means to be CATHOLIC.

In what official capacity? As a blogger?
I have no official capacity of any kind.I am not affiliated with the church (other than being a member of my local parish) and I am free to post or email anything I please.
You don't have a clue.
