Love Obamacare? Thank a Catholic

The new healthcare plan has been brought to us by…Catholics?

I was sickened to see Catholic Joe Biden standing next to the most pro-abortion President in the history of the country signing the biggest expansion of abortion since Roe.

We’d all fought the bill for so long but when Catholic Bart Stupak relented to Catholic Nancy Pelosi I knew that the healthcare bill was going through. I couldn’t imagine how Stupak could not know that the healthcare plan funded abortion, especially after the Catholic HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius acknowledged it in an interview.

The bill had gained some extra momentum after 60 Catholic nuns endorsed the plan.

And then here’s the list of Catholic congressman who voted “yes” on Obamacare, according to Catholic Advocate.

There is something very wrong with Catholicism in America when Catholics play such a large role in passing anti-life and anti-conscience legislation. Catholic politicians need to be reminded that you don’t leave Christ at the Capitol steps. They need to be reminded that the issue of life is not negotiable. And Catholic voters need to elect politicians who understand that evil exists and fight with all they have against enshrining evil into law. They must remember that the terms public servant and Catholic are not mutually exclusive.

Catholic voters need to take their responsibility seriously and stop electing politicians who say one thing and do another.

    I went to a Catholic high school. At our 20 year reunion, I witnessed what had to be the most shocking skit a person could imagine. There is something very wrong, and it might be that we have the fullness of the Truth, so we are the biggest target and make the biggest trophy. We must pray for each other and grow in our Faith.

  2. Catholic ProObamacare says:

    I thought we left the public witchhunt behind us….
    It is disgraceful to publish the names of the Catholics who voted for the Healthcare bill and incites hate, labeling them as being not Catholic. They after all followed their conscience, formed on the Catholic teaching which basically supports universial access to healthcare.
