House Democrats Challenge The Pope

May 15, 2007

Apparently feeling their power and inflated egos, a group of House Democrats have come forward to repudiate the Popes abortion remarks made recently.

Pope Benedict XVI indicated he would support Mexican bishops if they were to excommunicate Mexican legislators who voted last month to legalize abortion in Mexico City.

American Democrats have come forward to claim that the suggested penalty “offend[s] the very nature of the American experiment and do[es] a great disservice to the centuries of good work the church has done.”

The First Amendment to the Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Since 1947, the “Separation of Church and State” has been continually used to deny religion any say in our government. Candidates have been belittled for their religion and claims made that religion steers sitting Presidents (only Republicans).

Now, it appears that Democrats have decided they will direct the Church, if not by legislation, by pressure.

I am not a Catholic, but I know of the importance of the position of the Pope to that religion. If Catholic legislators, or any others, find themselves in strong disagreement of their spiritual teachings and beliefs, it is not up to the religion to change to suit them. It is up to them to either change their contrary views or find another religion.

It’s just one more move by power mad Democrats in establishing their ‘Socialist Utopia’ to oppress citizens and convert the country to the Union of Socialist States of America.

Lew; you know as well as I do as to the WHY the defeatocrats have come forward with "going after" the Pope.

Their dnc double standards has returned to BITE them on their arses.

As for the 1st Amendment, if murdering unborn children is a form of expression, than using that logic(?), I can express myself by burning them at the stake.

Speaking of double standards, the same lefties who scream "Wall of separation, Jefferson said so!" will turn around and use Christian teachings about charity toward the poor to justify government welfare programs.
