On the Capital Gang TV show on July 28th, Margaret Carlson of Time Magazine, one of the regulars was giving her thoughts about President Bush's meeting with Pope John Paul II and how it would affect Bush's decision on embryonic stem cell research.
Said Carlson -- If Bush says no to embryonic stem cell research, it would look like he's doing it just for the Catholic vote and that will make him look like a political opportunist and not too good in the eyes of the public. There are 44 million Catholic voters.
What you should know is that Margaret Carlson is a Catholic and apparently thinks her views are somehow the views of the general public.
She is pro-choice to kill the unborn (PCKU) and is now trying to do everything in her power to get Bush NOT to heed the advice of the Pope.
When Bush was campaigning, he said he was against Federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. He believes, as do all embryologists, that human live begins at conception.
If he sticks to his guns, how in the world can that be construed that he is just doing it for the Catholic vote.
People such as Margaret Carlson, having been exposed to eight years of Bill Clinton, naturally assume that all presidents are devoid of honor, integrity and character.
Leave it for a liberal Democrat to come up with such a phony reason. They will lie, cheat, be a party to death, if it will help their cause. Margaret Carlson IS a disgrace to her own Church, by trying to influence Bush to ignore the Pope's request, to honor the sanctity of human life and thus place Bush in a precarious position -- to sin, by allowing embryonic stem cell research, or not to sin.
Yes, to condone and propagate the destruction of human life is a sin as they WILL learn the hard way -- when they are ready to meet their Maker.
Bush MUST do the right thing -- throw politics aside and ask, "what would God do?" If he does that, the choice is simple. He can NEVER be faulted for honoring the sanctity of human life. He WILL only be respected.
If he allows Federal funding for embryonic stem call research, he will have sold out and is no better than liberal Democrats and his political career will be OVER.
Surely Bush must know that adult and umbilical cord blood stem cell research has, by far, shown more promise than embryonic stem cells, which so far have been a disaster.
I personally believe that ESCR is being touted by pro-aborts, mainly to seduce pro-lifers into closing their eyes to the killing of the smallest of human beings and thus, they've GOT YOU.
You are no better than pro-choicers. You abandoned your morals and entered the culture of death, by buying into the proposition that ESCR is the golden path to prolonging life.
I can just hear the pro-aborts if Bush goes back on his word and allows the killing of embryos to extract their stem cells: “How can you say that abortions are wrong and human life begins at conception? For ulterior motives, and when the chips were down, you gave permission to destroy, what you considered to be a human being. So, please Mr. President, in the future do not give us that garbage that human life begins at conceptiom.”
Senator Orrin Hatch and a few other supposedly pro-lifers bought it, because as Hatch said, "this research is really pro-life -- it could result in a cure for many diseases."
Yeah right, kill another human being so that you can live longer. This is sick and Senator Hatch, do your homework. No embryonic stem cell has resulted in improving the health of humans, or animals, unlike adult and umbilical cord blood stem cells, which already have improved and prolonged lives.
As I've said many times, Democrats will turn against their own Faith, if it means it will help their party. Carlson knows that the Catholic Church honors the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death.
An embryo is a human being and there is no one who can refute this. But people like her and Senators Kennedy, Kerry, Daschle, Biden, Leahy, Durbin, Dodd, Mikulski, Harkin, Reed, Murray, Landrieu and Collins all have one thing in common. They are all Catholic and lousy ones at that, for they have all sold their souls to satan for political gain.
By now, there should be no doubt in anyone's mind that the Democratic party has become satan's pride and joy. Please note, all the Senators named above are Democrats with the exception of Susan Collins, the lone Republican -- a 12 to 1 ratio. When you add this disregard for human life to the Democratic Party's embracement of homosexuality, you can readily understand why satan loves the Democratic party.
There is a petition, which will be presented to their Bishops to have them publicly excommunicated and if they are not excommunicated, the petition will go directly to the Pope.
Why the Bishops haven't done this by now, boggles the mind. Would you believe that 9 of the above 13 Catholic Senators even voted NOT to ban the late term barbaric partial-birth abortion. They are poor excuses for human beings. There are also 54 Catholic Congressmen/women on the list to be excommunicated and 4 governors -- all pro-aborts.
If these Catholic politicians would be excommunicated publicly, the killing of unborn babies would soon be history. The message would be sent loud and clear to the rest of the flock -- YOU CANNOT BE A PARTY TO THE KILLING OF HUMAN BEINGS AND BE A CATHOLIC -- GOOD-BYE. Oh, what a price they're paying for political gain -- their very soul.
"What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but suffers the loss of his own soul"
(Mark 8: 36).
I just don't get it. The only thing that comes to mind is that they just don't - way down deep in their hearts - believe in God. That they will NOT be judged for their actions in this world by anyone and therefore do not fear the wages of sin. If anyone has a better answer -- I would sure like to know it.
When you legislate death you are no different from the abortionists, and that's exactly what they did. All the Senate needed was 3 more votes and they would have had the necessary two-thirds vote to override Clinton's veto of partial-birth abortions/murder.
If you haven't already signed the petition for excommunication, I would urge you to do so. These so-called Catholic Senators chose satan over God and even excommunication is too good for them.
Non-Catholics are also invited to sign the petition and participate as Amicus Curiae - (friends of the court) Petition to the Pope
Also, phone President Bush as soon as you can at: 202-456-1414. Time is short. You will be told to leave a comment. Tell him NOT to fund the killing of human beings -- embryonic stem cell research. Either you believe that human life begins at concepton, or you don’t. There is no excuse to kill human beings to benefit other human beings and besides, adult stem cells and umbilical cord blood stem cells have been proven to be better.
