RU 47/2008 - UNITED STATES


- The USA: The catastrophe of the election of the super-abortionist Obama - he programmed with top priority to free abortion from all restrictions - will send from now on tsunami waves over America, and even over the world if one considers the immense influence of the United States. To complete our information on the election of Obama, please find hereafter what said two of the few catholic bishops (some are talking about some fifty of them, on the 267 bishops of the Catholic Church in the U.S.) who dared to ring the tocsin in front of the Obama danger, by warning severely the faithful.

Here is what Mgr Robert Finn, bishop of Kansas City, declared in a radio interview the day before the presidential elections, i.e. on November 3rd, 2008: as an Obama voter, with his “fanatical stance on abortion rights“, “you make yourself a participant in the act of abortion, and you mustn’t do it, because your eternal salvation is tied up with that important choice!” One cannot be more clear.

Another bishop, Mgr Robert Hermann, the actual Apostolic Administrator of the vacant diocese of St Louis (the former bishop Mgr Burke has been nominated at the Vatican), was more explicit in his public letter of October 18th, i.e. 3 ½ weeks before the election :

What kind of witness will I give to Him when I go into the voting booth this election day? The decision I make in the voting booth will reflect my value system. If I value the good of the economy and my current lifestyle more than I do the right to life itself, then I am in trouble. Pope John Paul II, in his post-synodal apostolic exhortation Christifideles Laici tells us: ‘Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights — for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture — is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination.’ The right of our children to be protected from destruction is greater than my right to a thriving economy. I am living proof of this, since I am here because my parents believed this priority and lived it. My desire for a good economy, or my desire to end the war in Iraq, cannot justify my voting to remove all current restrictions on abortion.

My parents got married about one year before the stock market crash of 1929, and yet they raised 15 children in the midst of the Great Depression. They had no money. My mother made her own wedding gown and her own bouquet of flowers. I have my parents’ wedding picture on the wall of my office, and I am reminded every day of the sacrifices they made for life.

We had no money, but we had each other! My parents were at home with us for three meals every day. We had plenty to eat because we raised almost all of our food. We seldom got new clothes, but we wore hand-me-downs, unless my mother would buy materials and make our clothes. We lived in poverty, but we learned the value of hard work. We had no running water or electricity. We had no TV, Internet or cell phone. Yet, we were very happy because we had life! We had each other! Today, all 15 children in my family of origin are most grateful for the sacrifices Mom and Dad made so that we could have life. Making sacrifices for each other brought us incredible joy and enhanced our dignity, because it gave us a chance to participate in serving each other! …

Judgment Day for us is on its way. Those 47 million children our nation destroyed are still living. We have destroyed their bodies, but their souls are still alive. When our Lord comes again, they may very well be there to judge us. Even worse, Jesus tells us that whatever we do to the least of our brethren, we do to Him. We would truly shudder if we heard the words, ‘I was in my mother’s womb but you took my life!’ It is quite possible that we might see these children, but, depending upon the choices we have made, we may very well be separated from them by a great chasm which cannot be crossed, much as the rich man who ignored Lazarus, the poor man, during his lifetime here on earth but was separated from him after death. The rich man was in flames, but Lazarus was in the bosom of his heavenly Father.

The Catholic Church teaches, in its catechism, in the works of Pope John Paul II and in the writings of Pope Benedict XVI, that the issue of life is the most basic issue and must be given priority over the issue of the economy, the issue of war or any other issue. These same teachings inform us that when both candidates permit the right to abortion, but unequally so, we must chose to mitigate the evil by choosing the candidate who is less permissive of abortion…My goal is not to engage you in some political party way but to engage you with our Saviour and His teachings. We need to constantly challenge our accustomed behaviours in the light of the Gospel. We may say that we are following our conscience, but are we informing our consciences with the truth about these issues? We must follow truth and our conscience, but be steeped in truth so that they be rightly formed…” - Our answer: A.M.E.N.! - (ru; cf. DR. Nov. 3, CO Oct. 18 ; and for A.M.E.N. see www.amen-net.org)
