Democrat Party Is Losing Christian Voters in Droves Thanks To Barack Obama

Last week Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan lashed out at the Obama Administration for forcing religious organizations to go out into the marketplace and buy a product that violates their conscience. New Obama regulations will force Christian organizations to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion drugs to workers even though this violates Catholic Church teaching. The new rules are so strict that most Catholic institutions will not qualify for an exemption.

This week the military is telling Catholic Chaplains what they can and cannot say about the Obama Administration.

These are just the latest examples of Obama’s war on Christians.

So it really comes as no surprise that religious voters are fleeing the Democrat Party and Barack Obama.
Redstate reported, via FOX Nation:

The topline number in this Pew survey shows that the current breakdown among registered voters is 43/48 GOP/Dem, which is a seven point shift from their 39/51 results in 2008. Now that alone should worry the Democrats, seeing as Pew found that the breakdown in 2010 was 43/47, which was the year where Democrats got shellacked across the country; but the news is if anything worse when you look at the breakdown by religious affiliation. A lot of attention will be on how Jewish support for the GOP went from 20/72 to 29/65 between ’08 and today; but what may be even more important is that that GOP support among white Mainline Protestant and white Catholic voters flipped from 45/45 and 41/49 in 2008 to 51/39 & 49/42 in 2011. How this will translate into likely voters is, of course, anybody’s guess… but if you’ve been wondering why the President is suddenly talking about how neat God is, it’s probably because somebody on his staff is keeping track of Pew.

When Rick Santorum says Barack Obama is the most anti-religion president in history, he now has data to back him up.

    The Catholic Vote, a guide for Catholics

    According to the Catholic Bishops AND the Pope i.e. Pope Benedict XVI, there are non negotiable issues which include abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and same sex marriage. Catholics need to ask what a candidate’s stand is, on these non negotiable issues and vote accordingly. If a Catholic votes for a candidate BECAUSE of, for example, their pro abortion stand, they might be committing a serious sin. Because of the number of deaths caused by abortion, of totally innocent humans, many Bishops have suggested that the abortion “non negotiable” trumps the other non negotiable issues. Unfortunately in most elections, there is no candidate with pro life stands on all of the non negotiable issues. War, is, by the way, NOT one of the non negotiable issues because the church feels at times, a society may feel that war is the only way of protecting their citizens (as the consensus was after the horrendous 9/11 attack).

    Is it wrong to be a “one issue voter”? We are ALL one issue voters. For example, what if a candidate told you that he or she was in favor of terrorism, would you even CARE what his or her stands on “other issues” was? Everyone answers “NO” to that.

    Well, abortion kills millions more human beings EACH YEAR than terrorism has killed in the last 50 years!

    What if you feel the liberal policies of the pro abortion candidate would cut down abortions more than the conservative policies of the pro life candidate?

    You know that is NOT true when the abortion industry has funded a candidate heavily. For example, Planned Parenthood spent 5 million dollars to win over 5 swing states for Al Gore in 2000 (and it worked to win those states although Gore lost the election). Planned Parenthood also spent 10 million dollars to help elect Barack Obama. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the USA. Do you think Planned Parenthood would fund a candidate whose policies would reduce the number of abortions?

    Now, if this is the Catholic’s belief, why would the vote for a democrat. They sound more Conservative to me.

    Once Obama is out of office and his imprint is substantially gone, Catholics may come back to the fold.

    There is an explosion that has been ignored. The youth, they are turning against Obama and some for the pot factor are going to Paul but that isn’t the only reason. He would never do what Obama has done and said in reference to the Catholic church.

    But Paul has other problems, indeed. The statements that the HHS has made and Obama’s threatening religious freedoms have been the throne in the side of Catholics every where.

    Obama will be asked, I predict by the Pope for an audience soon.

    Can someone who voted AGAINST the ban of partial birth abortion really care about the poor people?

    Partial birth abortion is a type of infanticide where a viable baby is killed WITHOUT anesthetic! Ask how the candidate whom you are considering voting for, voted when the Partial Birth Abortion Ban bill came before Congress or if not in Congress, ask what his/her stand on the Partial Birth Abortion is. (Even many Democrats voted for the ban! The ban did pass but Planned Parenthood is holding it up in court.

    http://suewidemark.com/the-catholic-vote/

    I believe Obama did vote for Partial Birth and I do believe he said He Doesn’t Want His Daughters Punished with a Baby

    Now, here are some reasons why the Catholics will rethink their vote.

    an executive order reinstating Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City policy. No
    U.S. money will go anywhere in the world to pay for abortion, period.

    And finally, many of you may have noticed that the Obama

    So now Catholics are upset because a straw has finally broken the camel’s back? Gee, where have they been for the last 70 years? The Church was designed for one thing, and that was to teach the lessons passed on to us by Christ. Part of those lessons including caring for the elderly, the sick and the poor. You know, that whole charity from the heart pricipal. But the Bishops were more than useful idiots, being all too happy to hand that responsibility over to the government.

    Care for the elderly? Well, hand that over to FDR who was more than happy to give us a false sense of security with Social “Security.” The poor? Nah, the government picked up that tab, as well with LBJ’s Great Society. The sick? Well, if we can get the government to handle the sick that are poor, we won’t be having to pay for some poor smuck who comes into our Church owned hospitals and doesn’t have any money. The government will just tax all those Protestants to pay for it. And golly gee, this all fits in with our “social justice” road we have taken (don’t call it Marxism) and now we can just invest in things like stock and bonds, not people.

    But we do have to build churches, you know. So let’s build them like supermarkets, not the glorious edifaces that we were once known for that was a testament to our love of God. No, no, let’s build them with a monitary value in mind so that if we lose too many parishioners, we can just sell it to someone else who can turn it into a community center or hell, just add a minaret and turn it into a mosque.

    And hell, while we’re at it, let’s get rid of most of our traditions, like the Mass as said forever, and turn in more in to a Kumbaya ceremony. We can all shake hands and say “Peace be upon you”, even knowing that the slug we are shaking hands with beats his kids or the woman cheats on her husband with his best friend. And while we are at it, we will add deacons, you know, like the Episcopalians and get rid of that alter railing thing that is, you know, so, so Catholic. Hello, Vatican II?

    But now, after 70 years of turning their back on what Christ’s Church was designed for, the Bishops are upset. But there will be no protests, no marches, no speaking out from the pulpit telling parishioners that the time to end the socialist takeover of our faith is here; no, no, the Bishops will sent a letter. Well, that should do the trick, don’t you think? I mean, when you send a letter to your Congressman, you always get a response, right?

    Too little, too late? Perhaps. But the Church allowed this to happen. Seventy years ago.

    Ted Kennedy wrote an unpublished codicil to his famous 2009 letter to the Pope,

    http://fratres.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/full-text-edward-m-kennedy-letter-to-pope-benedict-xvi/

    in which he implodes the Pope to write an amicus curia brief to St. Peter on his (Ted’s) behalf.

    Included in that codicil was a further plea for the Pope to issue writs of excommunication for any Catholic who did not subscribe to every single agenda item of the Democrat Party, most esp. health care.

    The Pope has now given his answer.

    “As to US contributions to the United Nations Fund for Population Activities,
    their continuation will be conditional on “concrete assurances” that no part
    of the US monies will be used for abortion and the Fund does not support
    abortion or coercive family planning programs”

    -US Policy Statement for the International
    Conference on Population, 1984

    Speaker Gingrich was one of nearly 150 co-sponsors of a bill in 1989
    which included provisions to fund the UN Population Fund. He never
    voted for this legislation and this never became law. This bill would not
    have overturned the Mexico City policy, and this funding would never
    have gone through. Gingrich was assured that Ronald Reagan’s “Mexico
    City Policy,” which prohibits any American tax dollars from funding or
    promoting abortions overseas, was in effect, so no funds from this bill
    would go toward supporting China’s barbaric “One Child” policy or any
    other programs that used abortion as means for “population control.”

    Gingrich has always supported the Mexico City policy, and on day one of
    his presidency, he will reinstate Ronald Reagan’s policy to assure that
    no tax dollars fund non-governmental agencies or charities that perform
    or promote abortions in foreign countries.

    Are we to assume that Gingrich was such an inept Speaker that he could not lobby for, and get, legislation that would have made Reagan’s Mexico City Policy permanent? If that is the case, why would anyone want to vote for him, any more than they would want to vote for a northeastern progressive?

    George Washington:

    While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.

    John Adams, 2nd U.S. president:

    “Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God … What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”

    and

    “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”

    Thomas Jefferson, 3rd U.S. president:

    This must be bolded:

    “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event.”

    The Almighty has no attribute which can [IS EVEN CAPABLE OF] taking side with us in that event.

    Hello, folks. Welcome to “that event”.

    What’s coming to our nation ain’t pretty, and Jefferson laid it out right there, plain and simple.

    John Hancock, 1st signer of the Declaration of Independence

    “Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. … Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.”

    Benjamin Franklin, signer of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution:

    “Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe. That He governs it by His Providence. That He ought to be worshipped.

    That the most acceptable service we render to him is in doing good to his other children. That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting its conduct in this. These I take to be the fundamental points in all sound religion, and I regard them as you do in whatever sect I meet with them.

    As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, is the best the world ever saw, or is likely to see;

    But I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his divinity; though it is a question I do not dogmatize upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an opportunity of knowing the truth with less trouble. I see no harm, however, in its being believed, if that belief has the good consequence, as probably it has, of making his doctrines more respected and more observed; especially as I do not perceive, that the Supreme takes it amiss, by distinguishing the unbelievers in his government of the world with any peculiar marks of his displeasure.”

    Heady stuff — these folks were as wise as Solomon.

    As we can see, now, reading their prognostications in hindsight.

    3. Newt Gingrich (former speaker of the House,
    1995-1998; former U.S. rep. of Georgia, 1979-1998)

    NARAL reports that Gingrich cast 74 votes on abortion and other
    reproductive-rights issues; 72 of those were considered to be
    “anti-choice.” He has repeatedly voted for the Federal Abortion
    Ban, which criminalizes some abortion services, and he has voted
    to eliminate the Title X family-planning program. He signed the
    SBA List pledge last month.

    From Gingrich’s 2012 presidential campaign website:

    “End taxpayer subsidies for abortion by repealing Obamacare, defunding Planned Parenthood, and reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy’ which banned funding to organizations that promote and/or perform abortions overseas.”

    The American Presidency Project

    Memorandum for the Acting Administrator of
    the Agency for International Development

    Subject: AID Family Planning Grants/Mexico City Policy

    The Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 prohibits nongovernmental organizations (“NGO’s”) that receive Federal funds from using those funds “to pay for the performance of abortions as a method of family planning, or to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortions.” (22 U.S.C. 215lb(f)(1)). The August 1984 announcement by President Reagan of what has become know as the “Mexico City Policy” directed the Agency for International Development (“AID”) to expand this limitation and withhold AID funds from NGO’s that engage in a wide range of activities, including providing advice, counseling, or information regarding abortion, or lobbying a foreign government to legalize or make abortion available. These conditions have been imposed even where an NGO uses non-AID funds for abortion-related activities.

    These excessively broad anti-abortion conditions are unwarranted. I am informed that the conditions are not mandated by the Foreign Assistance Act or any other law. Moreover, they have undermined efforts to promote safe and efficacious family planning programs in foreign nations. Accordingly, I hereby direct that AID remove the conditions not explicitly mandated by the Foreign Assistance Act or any other law from all current AID grants to NGO’s and exclude them from future grants.

    “It is beyond me how people of faith could have supported a party that espouses, supports and embraces abortion and homosexuality to begin with.”

    Probably because of historic, ethnic and cultural allegiances going back to the Depression/FDR era or farther. The Democratic Party did not ALWAYS “embrace abortion and homosexuality.” No political party embraced abortion until at least the 1970s; homosexuality didn’t become a national issue until the AIDS epidemic started in the 1980s, and gay marriage didn’t become an issue until the 1990s. It’s taken this long for the message to finally sink in that “this is not your father’s (or mother’s, or grandparents’) Democratic Party anymore.”

  • Elaine S.

    “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever”

    And don’t forget another famous Jefferson quote:

    “…this momentous question, like a fire bell in the night, awakened and filled me with terror. I considered it at once as the knell of the Union….I regret that I am now to die in the belief that the useless sacrifice of themselves, by the generation of 1776, to acquire self government and happiness to their country, is to be thrown away by the unwise and unworthy passions of their sons, and that my only consolation is to be that I live not to weep over it.”

    The latter quote was written in 1820 and refers to the so-called Missouri Compromise regarding the future extension of slavery. However, I think Jefferson’s words can apply to today in the sense that other issues the political/media establishment would have us believe to be “settled” or inevitable (including, but not limited to, abortion and gay marriage) have NOT been and are in fact becoming even more explosive.
