BeliefNet Twists the Truth on Sebelius

I came across this blog article over on the progressive Christian website about Sebelius and her "Catholic" supporters that have sidelined the Catholic League's Bill Donohue. Yeah right, like that's going to happen.

I felt compelled to reply and thought it best to post my reply to the blog here as I'm not sure it'll even get posted. I've had that happen a few times already so please read the above linked article then read my reply below. Feel free to hop over there and leave your own comments!

My comments below.

God Bless,

EDIT: (3/5 @0821 EST) My comment below still not posted so I just posted a comment with a link back here. We'll see!

Wow. Bob, I'm with you. I'm a Catholic first and above all things, even party, even nationality. I don't expect non Catholics to fully understand but the church's teachings are crystal clear and I won't get into all of that here. Suffice it to say that Sebelius has NOT done everything in her power to stop all abortions as is her duty and responsibility as a Catholic in public office (Faithful citizenship means faith to God above all else, even nation). Also of note is the fact that she is dear friends with and has publicly supported the notorious late-term abortionist George Tiller. That is material aid to abortions and in the eyes of the church is intrinsic evil and a grave sin.

The sad fact that there are so many corrupted and fallen Catholics that believe they can remain Catholic and pro-choice doesn't make it right as they are not following the teachings of the church. Following the teachings of the magisterium is a requirement of the faith, after all.

You cannot be a Catholic and Pro-Choice. These people that play word games with the church don't want to serve God, but want a God and a church that serves them and it just doesn't work that way. We exist as HIS pleasure, not the other way around.

Tom, exactly how many people per year are killed by ricochets? Hypotheticals and lack of facts make for poor arguments. I carry a gun every day for defense of innocent life against evil that would threaten to or would take that innocent life and am completely justified even according to the Catholic Church (Canon's 2263,64,65). I must value even my own God given life enough to defend it against evil that would take it.

It's obvious that Obama is intentionally trying to cause a schism in the Catholic Church in America by surrounding himself with fallen Catholics such as Biden, Pelosi, Sebelius, etc. but mark my words; the Catholic Church was around long before America and she will survive long after America falls, which at this rate won't be long. You know, that little "stand against the very gates of hell" thing.

Do you think God really cares about the modern American concept of "rights"? Love is all that matters and there can be no Love without life. I'd much rather stand before God having done my best to defended every possible innocent life I could, even dying in the process if necessary, than to stand there before Christ with my hands in my pockets and the excuse that I did what I thought was best and let even just one die.

I will most certainly pray for each of you that you might find the truth and Love of God in your hearts.

God Bless,
Bob Cavalcante

No one will ever know how many die from ricochets the same as no one will ever know how many died from 'coat-hanger' abortions, which is the argument earlier posters made for making abortion legal, so women wouldn't die from 'back-alley' abortions. I was making a point on the absurdity of the pro-choice argument, not lobbying for gun control. Reread my original post.

Tom my apologies, I read your post a few times before responding but it's hard to read what you were saying through the sarcasm.

I try not to raise a data point without the data to back it up. If there are any deaths due to richochets, it's likely so ridiculously low as to be negligible. I would bet that more people die crossing the street.

I would say as a gun owner that richochets are not accidental but negligent in not being aware of your target and what's beyond it. They are certainly not intentional acts to end innocent life. Abortions however, even coat hanger or back alley abortions, are intentional acts of the will to take human life that is now "inconvenient" and interferes with someone's lifetyle.

In the gun world we stopped using the word accident because nearly everything that goes wrong can be traced back to negligence of some form or another. You really could say the same for auto "accidents" and for all the ills of society.

Abortions are the horrific quick fix for negligent lifestyles and negligent sexual behavior.

God Bless!

Thanks for the heads up :-) I'm not sure if you ever visited that progressive revival blog on beliefnet B4 or you just googled Sebelius' name and stumbled across it, but they are constantly distorting scripture and other information to support their political positions. It is VERY gutrenching for a traditional Catholic who actually takes the faith seriously to read most of their writings. One example is this (have your pepto handy)


Not sure you really want to embark on this (hard if they censor your posts) but I admire you for trying. Will try and read your blog more often.

God bless,

Tom, thanks for the links I'll check them out in a bit and will certainly have something to share. Our place is right among the sinners, the sick and the poor and they don't scare me one bit.

God Bless!
