Catholics for Abortion Candidates? Yes, they are out there...

I've been running into fellow Catholics out there who have pressed me with the argument that sums up in nutshell "Obama is the real Pro-Life candidate in this election"

WRONG! Nothing could be further from the truth.

They seem to tie themselves up in an intellectual knot... a pretzel mind you. (more on this in a later post)

Catholic Culture has a good post addressing this phenomena of sorts...

The gloves are off... so here we go.

On Voting For Pro-Abortion Candidates

It’s election season again, and we should make one more attempt to convince our fellow citizens, our fellow Catholics and even some users of that they cannot morally allow any issue to take precedence over abortion in their decision about how to vote in the U.S. presidential election. This statement may strike some readers as just another example of knee-jerk conservatism or, worse, sycophantic advocacy for the Republican Party. But it is neither. It is simply a moral fact of life. This time around, I’m taking the gloves off.
