‘Intrinsic Evils’ in Democratic Platform


Bishop Paprocki Warns of ‘Intrinsic Evils’ in Democratic Platform (2573)
 

He said that voting for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are ‘intrinsically evil and gravely sinful’ makes a voter ‘morally complicit’ and places the eternal salvation of his or her soul in ‘serious jeopardy.’

SPRINGFIELD — Drawing particular attention to the Democratic Party platform’s support for “intrinsic evils” like abortion and same-sex “marriage,” Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Ill., has said that Catholics need to “think and pray very carefully” about their votes in the upcoming election.

“My job is not to tell you for whom you should vote. But I do have a duty to speak out on moral issues,” Bishop Paprocki said in his Sept. 23 column for the Catholic Times diocesan paper. “I would be abdicating this duty if I remained silent out of fear of sounding ‘political’ and didn’t say anything about the morality of these issues.”

He said that voting for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are “intrinsically evil and gravely sinful” makes a voter “morally complicit” and places the eternal salvation of his or her soul in “serious jeopardy.”

There are “many positive and beneficial planks” in the Democratic Party platform, the bishop said, but some promote “serious sins.”

In 2008, he noted, the platform dropped its call for abortion to be “safe, legal and rare” in favor of the language “safe and legal.” It now supports abortion “regardless of the ability to pay.” He said this means either taxpayer funding for abortion, mandatory insurance coverage or coercion of hospitals to perform the procedures for free.

Bishop Paprocki added that the Democrats’ national platform supports same-sex “marriage,” deems “gay rights” to be “human rights” and calls for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as the legal union of one man and one woman in federal law.

The bishop noted the existence of Republicans who support legalized abortion and others who support same-sex “marriage.” He said they are “equally as wrong as their Democratic counterparts,” but their positions do not have official party support.

Bishop Paprocki also examined the Republican Party platform and found that it has “nothing in it that supports or promotes an intrinsic evil or a serious sin.”

The platform’s support for allowing courts the option of imposing the death penalty in capital murder cases is not inherently opposed to Church teaching. He cited the Catechism of the Catholic Church’s teaching that the death penalty is permissible if it is the only possible way to defend human life.

Bishop Paprocki said that party’s differences about the needs of the poor and the challenges of immigration are “prudential judgments about the most effective means of achieving morally desirable ends, not intrinsic evils.”

He concluded his column with a prayer that God give Catholic voters the “wisdom and guidance to make the morally right choices.”

Obama's War On America's Religious Freedom

There is much to be said in regard to Obama's intentions when it comes to reducing religious liberty in America. America; a country founded and flourished upon the publicly proclaimed God given rights of mankind - among those rights are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Soon if Obama is reelected, America will become a place where every reference to God will be removed from all outdoors and all places by all people except within the four walls of one's church. Christianity has been under attach and Islam has been supported up to now only partially by Obama, but soon...? How would Americans handle it if it turned out Obama was a Muslim sympathizer, I wonder...

A Diluted Party in Conflict With God?

 
A Diluted Party in Conflict With God? No question, but is that all we see? We must be clear of course not all in the Democratic party are Godless, Godlessness is not exclusive to democrats or any other group and in itself is a reflection of a person, not an entity. But it is undeniable the party has become so infected with the cancer of immorality fed by the individual pursuit of self-gratification and in many the lack of human decency that it can not legitimately muster the majority of votes necessary to support the reinstatement of an acknowledgment of God in the party's principles. By the outbursts, flailing of arms and "boos" against the return of the reference to God to its platform it expresses its resentment toward acknowledgment of God, our Creator, defying the very principles this country was founded and flourished upon, evidenced by our Declaration of Independence. This is not, not the Democratic Party many joined years ago.
We are supposed to believe President Obama had no prior knowledge of the removal of all references to God and Jerusalem from the platform; that aghast, he ran to the rescue to see it returned. But this is Obama's far left Democratic Party, if the Democratic Party can be stretched that far to the left. We know for some time now the President has avoided responding publicly as to whether he recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital. This is the president who at the beginning of his first campaign in 2008 refused to place his hand over his heart during the pledge of allegiance until he was convinced he had no choice if wishing to win the presidency; wasn't it he who wanted the initials of Jesus Christ covered up at Georgetown University while he was there to speak? Wasn't it Obama who has avoided saying that line of reference to "our Creator" when quoting from the Declaration of Independence? Isn't this the President who has been attacking Christianity and chipping away at our constitutional rights for the better part of his Presidency; The president who mocked those who reflect on the Holy Bible in Pennsylvania and cancelled the annual "day of Christian prayer" at the White House, replacing it with the recitation of Islamic prayer. Isn't this the president who is so desperately eager to promote uninhibited abortions and free birth control paid for by tax payer dollars and forced upon religious institutions against the principles of their faith?; the president who by his own suggestion would rather see Christian Hospitals and charitable organizations close to the loss of the public who need them, rather than honor the constitutional rights established for the free practice of religion as provided under the first amendment; Isn't this the president who has denied, by his own executive order, the family of a federal law enforcement officer their right to know how their son was killed and what responsibility if any the office of the Attorney General, Eric Holder, may have had in his death? I could but need not go on at this time...
Yet, after raising all these points, it is not the only proof provided us in this video. If we as a people step back from this video and look with unbiased eyes, we will witness our society as a whole; This is the society we created. We will see ourselves regardless of party or denomination and how we will be seen to our future generations. In fact, the conflict within the Democratic Party serves to show the conflict in our society brought about by the abandonment of morality and the practice of our Christian faith. If we do not return to those principles endowed upon us by our Creator when we were gifted this country, we can not expect this country to survive let alone us as a people. What then can we say in defense of our culture if this ideology is reflected in our public votes?
