“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.”
Psalm 127:1

Catholics Called to Witness released this powerful video for the 2012 election. The values ad includes this powerful quote from Cardinal Dolan:

“Forcing the Church to buy insurance that goes against her teachings is a violation of religious freedom… When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental, one shudders to think what lies ahead.”

This is an amazing production. The video already has over 100,000 views. Enjoy.

From the video: Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire? Some things are more important than high gas prices or a faltering economy. They are life, marriage and freedom. This November, Catholics must stand up and protect their sacred rights and duties.

  1. Powerful.

    Finally.

  2. Won’t make a bit of difference in the coming election. Catholics, esp the Hispanic Catholics out here will still vote overwhelmingly for Obama and the Dem candidates.

  3. “Vain” not “Vein”

  4. I’m not so sure this time that Catholics, Jews and other traditionally democratic voting blocks will not turn on the Dems and vote against them. We are at a cross-roads of EPIC proportions. Not because one man, or one election means everything – but because the outcome of this election will prove to everyone in America just where we’re headed: Back towards Liberty, or onward towards enslavement.

    Catholics, Baptists, Mormons, Jews, etc. – we must all hang together or someday we will surely …well, you know…

  5. This will make no difference, even among Catholics. The lines are pretty clearly drawn between those who follow the Vatican and those who follow their own conscience.

  6. Please, please vote for Liberty & fiscal sanity. I.e. vote for change.

  7. People need to return to the Sacraments, they need to wake up now or wake up later only to find that they are slaves to the state.

  8. They labor in V-A-I-N, not V-E-I-N. The first means without success, the second mean inside a blood vessel.

  9. Very nice, could not have said it better, maybe it will make a difference if enough people see it. Why do the nay-sayers here say it will not do any good? The truth will live forever and needs to be said regardless. Besides, I use to be a Democrat so one can change, there is hope!

  10. Fantastic video!
    I will definitely share this with all I know.

    Now, if we can just nominate or broker the convention for a decent candidate to run against B. Hussein.

  11. Here is the full verse from the KJV:

    Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

    The following verses (there are only 5) address the abortion issue directly:

    Psa 127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
    3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
    4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
    5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

  12. “Forcing the Church to buy insurance that goes against her teachings is a violation of religious freedom… When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental, one shudders to think what lies ahead.

    Why then, did Cardinal Dolan not speak out against Obie’s planned mandate before it became law? Before it became clear that the Catholic Church would be adversely affected by it?

  13. I don’t think this one video is it though. I heard yesterday that the Catholic Bishops are planning to address this repeatedly in the parishes over the summer. I think this is just the beginning. As to Catholics who vote Democrat, I’ve known many and they all fell for the “social justice” lie. Don’t know how many will wake up now, but we’ll see. Finally, I must comment on the following the Vatican or their conscience comment above. Believe it or not, for many if not most Catholics, they are one and the same. Of course, not every Catholic follows the IDEAL perfectly. We are, after all, still human, but that doesn’t mean we disregard or condemn the ideals our church holds to. If Catholics turn this election, you can bet the Dems will be hurting at the ballot box for years to come and not just for the presidency.

  14. It may take a while for Americans to wake up. And when Catholic do, LOOK OUT.. They love to wake up knowing that God will be there, always. Lately, Government has intervened and mandated without considering the Churches teaching and beliefs. Beliefs that are set in stone. Catholics believe in life from the beginning to the end and life everlasting.

    Any one person cannot decide for the Catholics who lives and who dies. In essence this is what government is doing. Catholics will not contribute to means to abort a baby. Contraception are a means to preventing have a child. Catholic Church isn’t naive and they do know that some Catholics do things that are not always in step with the Churches beliefs but to accommodate a President in order to give Catholics contraception on their insurance is the direct opposite of their beliefs.

    Family, Marriage, “Life” and Freedom to practice are beliefs without intervention from Government.

    As the Catholic Church sees it the only way to stop our freedoms from being taken away is to Vote Obama out of Office. The pastors and Cardinals can’t tell you who to vote for but trust me the Church will be a BIG AND POWERFUL force in the election. This Government is trying to manipulate our Faith and that is very dangerous.

    This will be an issue, no matter what the left tells us. God, Hope, Faith and Charity will always live in America. We will not be denied our FAITH AND OUR BELIEFS.

  15. @Economan/#8

    I agree..and if you look at the statistics, oBama never HAD the Catholic vote because the people who voted for him were Pelosi Catholics–CINOs–Catholics in name only. Faithful Catholics who attend Mass weekly did NOT for him. He has nothing, absolutely NOTHING in common with us. The issue here reaches far beyond just Catholics..if he’s allowed to trample on religious freedoms, what other groups will he be targeting next?

  16. People of faith cannot be made second class citizens. We are already joined by our brothers and sisters of all faiths and many others of good will in this important effort to regain our religious freedom. Our parents and grandparents did not come to these shores to help build America’s cities and towns, its infrastructure and institutions, its enterprise and culture,

    only to have their posterity stripped of their God given rights. In generations past, the Church has always been able to count on the faithful to stand up and protect her sacred rights and duties. I hope and trust she can count on this generation of Catholics to do the same. Our children and grandchildren deserve nothing less.

    More than 67 million Catholics are registered in parishes across the United States, with approximately 20 million of those attending Mass regularly. Nationwide, Catholics make up 21 percent of the population but 27 percent of the electorate. In each of the battleground states being discussed in political circles, Catholics continue to account for a higher percentage of the electorate than their overall percentage of the population. These numbers make Catholics the kind of swing voters who win elections. They also make Catholics a voter group that can influence the position of candidates on the key issues of life and marriage. It will take a robust Catholic outreach to elect a pro-life, pro-family leader for our nation in 2012.

    Well said Gus. As we watch the assault on our Justice System, Religious Autonomy and Private Industry we are really seeing a dress rehearsal for the future of this great nation.

    I’m reminded of an old Droodle that had a title of “Two Corpuscles Who Loved in Vein”. I guess they were named Romeo and Juliet.
