How Can a Catholic be a Democrat?

Jesus says if you love Me, keep My Commandments. If one does not keep His Commandments, even though they know better and every Catholic does, then the natural syllogism would have to be that one doesn't love God. Since the Democrats openly defy His Commandments, then for a Catholic to be a Democrat would greatly jeopardize his soul.

    If one really and truly way down deep in their heart, believes that there is a God, who will judge us all for our short stay on this Earth, you CANNOT be a Democrat.

    The Democratic party's rejection of moral values should make every Catholic bolt from this party -- a party, which I have absolutely no doubt brings great joy to satan.

    They embrace everything that is evil. The Holy Bible to them is outdated. From their making up excuses to kill children while still in their mother's womb, to embracing the sick and deadly homosexual lifestyle.

    As Catholics, one cannot accept the Democratic proposition that a woman should have the right to have her unborn child killed, if she so chooses.

    Their justification for these atrocities: It's her body.

    This “own body” routine does NOT work for prostitutes, or the taking of drugs. Try it -- you'd be thrown in jail. Apparently it only works if you kill your unborn child. Figure that one out.

    I might add that the unborn child is NOT the mother's body. The eyes, heart, brain, lungs, arms and legs of the life in her womb are not hers. They belong solely to her child. The DNA is different, which is the ultimate scientific proof.

    To be a Democrat, Catholics, MUST mock God and disobey His will: “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” Surely God with his infinite power, would have been able to look into the future and seen the aftermath of the Roe-Wade decision, and put an asterisk after it, to omit the killing of unborn children. Or, let us know in some way, loud and clear, that unborn children were excluded. The fact that God did NOT do this, should tell us that God means what he says, and people should not be trying to look for loopholes in the Bible to countermand the word of God to justify the killing of the unborn and ease their conscience.

    To say that, “Thou Shalt Not Kill” does not include unborn children, is the same as saying -- God you have no power -- you couldn't look into the future, otherwise you would have put an asterisk after “Thou Shalt Not Kill," to exempt the unborn. This questioning of God's power is blasphemy and a slap to His face.

    The typical response from a pro-choice [to kill unborn children] person, is “but the baby is not formed. Most abortions are done in the first trimester.”

    The fact of the matter is: When most abortions are done, the heart has already begun to beat -- 4 weeks. When most abortion are done, electrical activity has already begun in the developing brain and nervous system -- 6 weeks. When most abortions are done, the child's arms, legs, hands, toes and face begin to form -- 8 weeks.

    Having lost this argument, the pro-choicers [to kill] will say: “But they have no feeling.”

    To this I would say: “What does that have to do with anything? Are you trying to say that human beings should be able to be killed when they have no feelings? Using your logic, if a patient is fully anesthetized and is being operated on and someone walks in the operating room and shoots and kills that person, it would not be considered murder, because they felt nothing, or if killed while in a coma."

    When this argument fails, they then say, “I mean they are not fully formed -- like when born.”

    “Now, you are way beyond the first trimester as you opined in your original argument. But, having gone there, I will respond. After a baby is born, the baby is still not fully developed. The cranial bones are not closed; the eyesight has not been fully developed. Many newborns have heart murmurs because the heart valves are not fully developed. These types of murmurs eventually disappear. These are just a few examples. With your logic, then it is OK to kill babies after they're born. Is that what you mean?”

    “Oh, no, I didn't mean that.” “Then, what did you mean?” “Well, not after they are born and start breathing.”

    “When a baby is born, most have to be stimulated to breathe. So, again with you logic, it is OK to kill these children after they're born, but before they take their first breath. Is that what you mean?”

    “No, that's not what I mean.” “Then, what do you mean?” “I don't know what the hell I mean -- just leave me alone.”

    Such is the mindset of those, who claim to be pro-choice [to kill unborn children). It doesn’t even pass the “smell” test.

    For those, whose minds are open to the truth, human life was created by God when the sperm fertilizes the ovum (conception). This union causes a double set of chromosomes, half from the sperm and half from the ovum, which contain the genes/DNA which determine particular characteristics in the human being. The result of this union, the zygote, is the beginning of a new human life with its own genetic code and destiny. This is a scientific fact and not based on religious views. However Judeo-Christian teachings on abortion acknowledges this scientific fact.

    So when you have science and the Bible agreeing that human life begins at conception, then you are all the more perplexed that the Supreme court legalized the killing of unborn children in 1973.

    To pick out a certain developmental stage to justify the killing of unborn babies is a travesty of justice. It is scientifically unsound and defies all logic, since the development of a human being is a continuum -- zygote, embryo, fetus, infant, child, adolescent and adult.

    The location of the development is inconsequential, and should not be held against unborn children and used as an excuse to kill them. The fact is, that in both cases, the unborn and born are still developing and cannot survive on their own.

    We cannot play God and pick and choose whose going to live or die in the womb according to certain developmental stages, no more than we can pick or choose whose going to live or die after the baby is born since the developmental process is a continuous one.

    It must be nice to be able to pick and choose certain parts of the Holy Scriptures to live by. As long as they don't interfere with your way of life.

    In addition to trashing God's Commandment,"Thou Shalt Not Kill," the Democratic party would have us also trash the following: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart." (Jeremiah 1: 5) We also must NOT believe that God knew us and set us apart after He created us at conception. To be a Democrat, we MUST believe that God DID NOT CREATE US.

    Also, to be a Democrat, one must also mock God by condoning and embracing the germ prone and deadly homosexual life style. A Christian must play “dumb,” to the following:

    Romans 1:27 "For their women have exchanged the natural use for that which is against nature, and in like manner the men also, having abandoned the natural use of the woman, have burned in their lusts, one toward another, men with men doing shameless things and receiving in themselves the fitting recompense of their perversity."

    The biggest backers of the Democratic party are the smallest when it comes to morals. Planned Parenthood, the leading killers of unborn babies in the world, NARAL and NOW their biggest backers; the Hollywood community, with its proliferation of pornography and contaminating TV, so that it is impossible to sit with your children and watch a show in prime time; the homosexuals, who are hell bent on forcing their sick and deadly lifestyle into our public schools. What do they ALL have in common? They all propagate sin in one way or another. Without the support of these satanist inspired groups the Democratic party would fold. They and all their millions, are the foundation of the party.

    The Democratic party refers to people of faith as the religious right, or if you believe in the entire Bible and don't pick and choose certain parts to meet your fancy, you are a religious fanatic. These names are not just uttered by the man on the street, but by Democratic Senators and Congressmen/women. And once more, their relishing in saying it, is hypocritical, as they purport to condemn all bigots. I guess that unlike minority races and homosexuality, Catholics are fair game.

    If you are pro-life and a Democrat and would like to be president of the United States -- FORGET IT. This is why Al Gore switched. I think this is known as selling your soul to the devil for worldly gain. If it's not, then I don't know what would be.

    So, how is it humanly possible, for a person who believes in the word of God, be a member of a party that mocks God? If anyone knows -- PLEASE, let me know. More importantly, what do these people say to God, at the “pearly gates?” It's as if they expect to live forever, or they DON'T believe in the wages of sin, or they don't believe in God. Take you pick -- It IS one of the three.
