Catholics for Obama?

Listen to the argument made by Dr. Stephen Schneck, Chairman of Catholics for Obama and professor at Catholic University of America, and see if you see any sense here. He opposes abortion, contraception, the HHS Mandate, the redefinition of "marriage," the Mexico City Policy -- all of which involve intrinsic evils -- as well as Obama's extravagant deficit spending. All well and good. But yet for Obama and the Democratic Party, all of these are basic platform planks considered essential 'goods' to defend! Why then is he Chair of Catholics for Obama? Because, he says, the Romney-Ryan plan for Medicare would lead to more abortions.

Say what?!!! Ensure that your teens and tweens have access to Big Nanny's credit cards, and they'll be more responsible and have less abortions??

When asked how he would propose funding the entitlements he supports, Schneck says that economics is, well, not his area. Oh, how sad (and convenient). Watch Professor Schneck try and make all of this look as if were an 'intelligent' position.

Madison Bishop Robert C. Morlino follows Schneck, during which two clips are shown of Sr. Simone Campbell, Head of Network, a left-of-center lobbying organization in Washington, D.C. She speaks against the Ryan budget, because, she says, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is part of her pro-life stance. Sure. Bankrupt Big Nanny by maxing out all her credit cards and see how far your pro-life largesse goes.

Standard consequentialist's rationalization.

Isn't it amazing Bernadin's "seamless garment" hasn't gone out of fashion yet. Dr. Schneck looked quite good in it.
