Is she rejecting her God? Socialism takes away a basic right God gave her has to ownership of land?

I didn’t read that she was aware that 0bama is the most pro-abortion senator.
And what is this with “a good man with a good private life”? She obviously has never heard of Ayers, Wright, Rezko, etc.
Is ignorance bliss?

I am Catholic. I am a Democrat. I am also going to vote for Obama. I feel that our soldier’s lives are just as important as anyone elses. Why do we continue to send our young women and men to war? Am I unpatriotic? Heck no! My grandfather was a World War II Vet, my father a Vietnam Vet, and my ex-husband a Desert Storm Vet. My father’s flag flies proudly at my house every Veteran’s Day. But aren’t our soldiers lives just as important? Bring them home now, treat them how they deserve to be treated. Spend our tax dollars on Veteran’s benefits instead of bailing out wall street. When I think about how we have to pay for that mess I just seethe!!!

Biden who seems to think he still lives in Scranton was reprimanded by his Bishop. The truth is the Truth…I know it’s tough to keep it all straight when you are constantly changing your tune.

This NUN at 106 being close to the Glory of the end of her time on earth…chooses to support not only some one who completely approves abortion AT EVERY STAGE 3rd TRIMESTER…. INCLUDING INFANTACIDE ( He Obama is actually proud of his stance) but is proud of the fact she had not voted for 50 years !!! Where has she been? Certainly not learning a thing about HER own church.

Let’s HOPE the POPE hears of this and straightens her out!

But more importantly, it is incomprehensible how anyone who considers him/her self a Catholic could support Obama. A “good man” says the nun- perhaps she has dementia. The nuns by whom I was schooled would have been appalled not just by Obama’s stand on abortion but even more by his refusal to support a bill which would have mandated medical care for babies who survived abortions. While one may make an argument that life does not begin at conception, there is no dispute that once that child is out of the womb, it is an individual entitled to all the rights granted to him/her by the US Constitution. No contorted reading of the Constitution is required to reach such a conclusion and any denial of care is outright murder.

Why are you mocking her and dismissing her views? Perhaps she’s decided that abortion is just one issue in a basket of issues that need to be resolved? Many of those issues also involve life and death decisions. And some of those issues may bring the world to some kind of secular disaster or Armageddon (NBC-Nuclear, Biological or Chemical). Let each man look after his own soul before commenting on the souls others (and you did). After all, can you claim to have done more for your faith than she has done for hers? Seems to me you are casting stones. Now that is @ Truth.

100 years ago a small group of socialist/communist/tree huggers forced this young innocent 6 year old into the convent and forced her to pretend to be a good catholic. They brainwashed her and convinced her that the messiah would arrive in 100 years and that she would need to be there to carry forth his message…

And they’d be saying, “see this is just more proof that mccain is more qualified” (because of his age).
