Here’s a disturbing little piece detailing calls to Catholics by a pro-Obama group. Excerpted:
On Wednesday Hudson also revealed that a group calling itself Catholics for Obama had been making push poll phone calls in support of the president’s re-election bid. Among the questions being asked, he said, was “How can you support a ‘Mormon’ who does not believe in Jesus Christ?”
Um, hate to quibble here, but Mormons do believe in Jesus Christ. This, coming from the Obamanation, who support a man who sat for over a decade in the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church pews, listening to a pastor who spewed nothing but hate from his pulpit. And let’s not fool ourselves: Obama didn’t go to that church because of any “faith” he has. Allow me state what I think is the obvious: Obama is an atheist who masquerades as a Christian because the majority of the country still wants a President who believes in God. I’m an agnostic; I don’t care if we elect an atheist President, as long as he has a moral compass. Oh, and of course, there are those who believe Obama is a Muslim — which he’s not, so get the hell off that, okay? Most recently we had Madonna trumpeting that we “have a black Muslim in the White House!”.
Hey, Madge, listen, if you’re trying to get Obama re-elected, mistaking him for a Muslim is not the way to go about it.
So if the Obama campaign is going to go after Mormonism, the Romney campaign should sure as hell go after Jeremiah Wright, and Obama’s complete dismissal of the beliefs of the Catholic church — forcing them to provide contraception for free (they will provide it for a co-pay) at all Catholic hospitals and institutions. You know, this is the kind of the thing the Establishment Clause was supposed to take care of; there should be no established religion of the United States; and the Free Exercise clause which shortly followed, both of which are not meant to take God completely out of government, but, again, to make sure the government never explicitly endorses one religion. Don’t think I’m right? Pull a damned dollar bill out of your pocket (or, if you’re a liberal, go ahead and pull it out of someone else’s pocket). “In God We Trust”. I’m sick and tired of people insisting the Establishment Clause means absolute separation of Church and State. It doesn’t. It was never remotely intended to do that. Let me repeat, again: The Establishment Clause is in there to keep the government from favoring one religion over another. Jeff Jacoby has a very good recent piece discussing just this. And Jeff is far from a “right-wing nut”.
So, once again, if we’re really going to open the floodgates on the Mormon issue, then we conservatives have every right to let loose on Jeremiah Wright. My guess is the Obamanation will quash this little experiment to get the extremely important Catholic vote like a hot potato. Or, at least, they should. Then again, the Left is currently occupied with extremist zealots like Sandra Fluke who, as The National Review so eloquently stated, showed up at the Democrat Convention to “bang her spoon on her highchair”.
This ain’t a can o’ worms you want to open, Obamanation. It just ain’t.
