Notre Dame Alums Behind "10,000 Catholics for Obama" Website
InsideCatholic has the details:
... “We take the abortion issue very seriously but at the same time abortion has been used as a wedge issue to divide voters. We have seen some resistance in some circles but we want to express some facts about the senator's record on abortion and change the dialogue on this issue.”My Comments:
I notice that the same old tired rhetoric about abortion allegedly being a so-called "wedge issue to divide voters" keeps coming up among Obama's Catholic supporters. Well, if your guy and his party didn't support killing the unborn, it wouldn't be an issue at all.
Slavery and it's progeny such as lynching and segregation were "divisive" as well. Does that mean we should have just ignored them in favor or "other important issues"?
Yeah, I bet you would like to "change the dialogue" on abortion. When it comes to non-negotiable (I use that term because the Pope does) issues like abortion and so-called "same-sex" marriage, all you got is changing the subject. As Dale stated so eloquently on Friday:
"We don't give a s--t about the unborn or marriage. Much, much less associating with the great unwashed who do care and thus embarrass us before our secular friends."
