The Presidential Election And Religious Freedom

The Catholic Association has released its Religious Freedom Scorecard.  The pdf can be downloaded here. Please do so, print it and distribute freely.  Here's a clip recently released by the Romney/Ryan campaign (click here if you can't see embedded video).

  1. I'll be sure to pass this on to all my "Katholyk" friends w/three kids who support the DREAM Act, gays in the military, civil partnerships and the auto bail out:

    "He’s less conservative on social issues. Ryan generally avoids social issues like gay rights, a fact that has sometimes gotten him into trouble with conservative activists. In 2007 he voted for a bill that would ban employment discrimination based on sexual orientation. He explained that his vote was because he had friends “who didn’t choose to be gay … they were just created that way.” He later lamented that he “took a lot of crap” for that stance. He’s also backed versions of the Dream Act, and he voted for the auto bailout — a smart move given his representation of a district that lost nearly 17,000 jobs after GM and Chrysler shuttered facilities there.”

    When he voted against repeal of DADT, it was again because some "good friends" told him THE TIMING wasn't right. But now that it's been repealed, guess what: . "I think this issue is past us. It's done. And, I think we need to move on."

    The Democrats "change" and Republicans "move on" (though Ryan's probably not endorsing

    Give me Sharia or Obama over "religious liberty" like Scalia's (or Pelosi's, Biden's, Ryan's or Robert's) who states, "I don’t think any of my religious views have anything to do with how I do my job as a judge," and that in his opinion "helpless" human beings (those who can't walk!) don't have the same constitutional rights as those who aren't "helpless":

    "And indeed, there are anti-abortion people who think that the Constitution requires a state to prohibit abortion. They say that the equal protection clause requires that you treat a helpless human being that’s still in the womb the way you treat other human beings. I think that’s wrong,” Scalia further explained in a 2008 60 Minutes interview. “I think when the Constitution says that persons are entitled to equal protection of the laws, I think it clearly means walking-around persons.”

    Got that? Republican Katholyks are going to implement the death panels. Maybe Scalia wants to ask Madison, Washington, & Jefferson what they think about murdering "helpless" babies in the womb and harvesting organs from "helpless" people and depriving service men who can't walk because they lost their limbs defending our country of due process under the law.

    Here's a video from an out of touch Christian who went nowhere, while the Republicans nominated the only Republican Obama approved of in 2008:
