Your Vote is a matter of Life or Death!

100 Days until Election Day!

   On November 7th, the only issue that counts with God will be voting to uphold the Sanctity of Life and this means not voting for any candidate or measure that promotes or condones abortion!

    Because of the significant and pivotal importance of this upcoming presidential election that will determine whether millions upon millions of preborn innocents will be "allowed" to live, we have decided to place a special emphasis on the Pro-Life issues and have expanded the DAILY CATHOLIC to include a special section in each issue called: DEFEND LIFE. We have also punched up our Homeport Entry Page with a typographic image of a chalice overflowing with the blood of the holy innocents so horribly slaughtered. "They are," as the late Archbishop Johannes Dyba, Germany's staunches pro-life supporter said, "the innocent victims of the horrible holocaust of abortion." It is indeed much, much worse than the Holocaust of World War II, yet we hear so little outrage today about the former while the wrongs of the latter are plastered before us.

    The first Tuesday in November, November 7th is "D" Day, as in "Defend Life!" at the ballot box! It will be the most important day in the history of our country. Because the Republican presidential candidate has vowed to select pro-life judges to the Supreme Court which will ultimately overthrow the abominable Roe vs. Wade, and the Democratic presidential candidate has vowed to fill the court with pro-abortion justices, there really is no alternative on who to vote for. As Catholics, as Christians loyal to the One Who said, "I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly." Your vote will decide how much you believe in Christ and His laws. Your vote will decide if a smile comes to the face of God, the faces of loving parents, and the faces of newborns... or if satan and his legion of death wins. Believe us, if you choose the latter, you're going to have to stand alone before the Almighty Creator and answer to Him. The Jury will be the millions and millions of holy innocents who were never given the chance because of those who condoned their killing. If you vote for a pro-abort candidate we guarantee you're in that latter category by your participation or silent consent. That includes if you don't do anything. In the end, we will all have to account to God and only God for our actions!

    There is a war going on in our country between the forces of good and the forces of evil. We must not encourage or vote for candidates belonging to a political party that sees no evil in killing unborn babies, even while they're being born and suffer excruciating pain in the process -- the barbaric partial-birth abortion, which are done right up to term.

    We must not encourage any political party or candidate that bashes our Catholic Faith, by trying to kick the Vatican out of the United Nations.

    We must not encourage a political party or candidate that endorses a gay pride celebration within the vicinity of the Vatican, during the Jubilee celebration, even denying a request by the Vatican, for help in this matter with the specific purpose of targeting the one entity left with any moral character.

    We must not encourage any political party or candidate that calls people who attend Church on a regular basis -- religious fanatics.

    In a nutshell, we as Catholics MUST follow the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and vote for pro-life candidates for President, Congress and down to the state and local levels. This is the least we can do for God, Who sent His only Son to be crucified on the cross for our sins.

    We are not going to get involved in the political issue when it does not involve morals. That would go against our purpose and violate our agreement as a tax-exempt non-profit organization. However, when the issues are moral issues then they transcend the rules established by the IRS for we must "render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." When it comes to matters of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness it is no longer political, but rather our inalienable right to speak out and Defend Life!

    All the other issues together are not as important as saving God's most precious children. 1.4 million are killed every year -- 94% for convenience sake. One-third of all pregnancies end in death to a child, which is the reason our society is known as the "culture of death," and gives the perception that life is cheap. Because of this selfish mindset, few today are surprised when women have babies and throw them in dumpsters or children kill children.

    We MUST invite God back to our society, but He will NOT come back until we stop killing His precious children.

    NO woman should have the choice to kill another human being and IT IS a scientific fact that human life begins at conception. There is not a respected scientist in the world who could deny this.

    Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible tell us that if we know that a person is committing a sin, we MUST help him/her to see their evil ways and try to bring the sinner back to God and if we do not try, then it will be OUR sin. When you are pro-choice, you ARE condoning sin and you WILL have to answer to God.

    We as Catholics, MUST lead the way to end the American holocaust, and end our country's slide into hell. WE MUST VOTE FOR PRO-LIFE CANDIDATES.

    On Why Catholics Must Vote for Pro-Life Candidates!
       "We encourage all citizens, particularly Catholics, to embrace their citizenship not merely as a duty and privilege, but as an opportunity meaningfully to participate in building the culture of life. Every voice matters in the public forum. Every vote counts. Every act of responsible citizenship is an exercise of significant individual power. We must exercise that power in ways that defend human life, especially those of God's children who are unborn, disabled or otherwise vulnerable"
    (US Bishops, Living the Gospel of Life, 1998, n. 34).

Keyes bows out of running, enthusiastically puts his heartfelt stamp of approval on Bush-Cheney Pro-Life Republican Ticket
Dick CheneyAlan Keyes    Staunch Pro-Life and loyal Roman Catholic Alan Keyes gave his total support to the Bush-Cheney ticket as a wise and right choice for the Republican Party in the upcoming presidential campaign. Though he had said he might bolt the Party if Bush chose a pro-abort VP, Keyes said he will now campaign vigorously for the Party because of the GOP's strong Pro-Life stance and the fact that former Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney's record on pro-life, which throughout his political career is impeccable, mirrors Keyes' unyielding stance for the Sanctity of Life. continued inside.

Sad Day in Jersey as Judge shelves Partial-Birth Abortion Ban
New Jersey    One of the most populated Catholic states is in collective mourning today after a New Jersey Federal Court struck down the partial-birth abortion ban that had been on appeal. Thus, it met the same fate as the Nebraska appeal which the Supreme Court refused to uphold. Pro-lifers have decided not to appeal it but to focus all their energy in electing a pro-life president who will effectively overturn all abortion over time through his Supreme Court appointments. continued inside.

France selling out to sex and culture of death with newest measures that deny parental rights
France    Meanwhile across the pond the once great Catholic country of France continues its deterioration and slide towards hell just as Our Lady of LaSalette prophesied in that this beloved nation would sell out to worldly depravities and that is exactly what France is doing with the announcement that the French Government proposed on Thursday new legislation that would extend the time during pregnancy in which a mother may receive an abortion and would lift restrictions on girls receiving abortions or abortifacient drugs. In addition, the proposals would also remove parents' rights to decide whether their daughters under 18 could have an abortion or use so-called "emergency contraceptives," which actually cause a spontaneous abortion soon after conception. continued inside.
