Those same voters have traditionally determined who wins the Presidency, and with the Democrat's Nancy Pelosi's attempt to justify abortion as an ok Catholic choice, Catholics have over the last week heard strong refutations from their Bishops as to the wrongness of that stance.
The Democrats have attempted to shore up the Catholic vote by Obama's choice of Catholic Joe Biden as his running mate, but Biden also has a real problem with understanding Catholicism's absolute stance on the evil of abortion.
So choosing Sarah Palin is giving Catholic voters in America a real choice between those who would support life and the family and those who would destroy life and the family. Awesome!
"The inspired choice of Sarah Palin highlights the radical views of Obama- Biden on life and marriage. Catholic voters couldn't have a starker contrast this November," said Burch.Related Links: Palin a natural choice for Catholics ~ MarketWatch
"Catholics, like most Americans, are cautiously optimistic that the troop surge has calmed Iraq. Catholics will naturally turn their attention to which candidate will stand strong on behalf of families," said Burch."Barack Obama is not that candidate. Barack Obama wants to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. His first act as President has nothing to do with energy or Iraq. He wants to enshrine the right to abortion in federal law by signing the Freedom of Choice Act," said Burch.
"Barack Obama is so extreme on abortion that he thinks that babies who survive an abortion and are miraculously born alive should be refused food and water and be left to die," said Burch.
"John McCain, together with Sarah Palin, is a natural choice for Catholics. McCain has a strong pro-life record and he has made a commitment to selecting judges who will respect the Constitution. McCain has even bucked his own party on immigration and torture. We think these positions align John McCain closer to Catholic teaching and we are proud to stand with him as he prepares for a very difficult election ahead," said Burch.
"The stakes of this election are too large to ignore. Abortion supporters are awaiting the opportunity to eliminate years of progress on pro-life legislation by electing a President who supports abortion. There are six justices on the Supreme Court over the age of 68, and granting President Obama the opportunity to fill possible vacancies would be disastrous. America needs the experienced leadership of John McCain and Sarah Palin.
