“Bishops have a ‘duty’ to deny pro-abortion politicians Communion,” American Cardinal Justin Rigali age 77, says
“As long as he (a politician) continues to support legislation which fosters abortion or other intrinsic evils, then he should be refused Holy Communion,” the cardinal said.
Catholic Voice Full Interview with Cardinal Justin Rigali found here: To decriminalise abortion is a contradiction of the most fundamental principle of the legal system
Libertarian Party Platform: ~> http://www.lp.org/platform
Here are the first 4 Libertarian Views; I disagree with. [I did not read the rest].
1.1 Expression and Communication
We support full freedom of expression and oppose government censorship, regulation or control of communications media and technology. We favor the freedom to engage in or abstain from any religious activities that do not violate the rights of others. We oppose government actions which either aid or attack any religion.
1.2 Personal Privacy
Libertarians support the rights recognized by the Fourth Amendment to be secure in our persons, homes, and property. Protection from unreasonable search and seizure should include records held by third parties, such as email, medical, and library records. Only actions that infringe on the rights of others can properly be termed crimes. We favor the repeal of all laws creating “crimes” without victims, such as the use of drugs for medicinal or recreational purposes.
1.3 Personal Relationships
Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government’s treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.
Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.
My Two Cents Worth
- Regarding 1.1 of the Libertarian’s Platform: I strongly disagree with 1.1 because I DO BELIEVE IN CENSORSHIP. Porn should be made illegal again.
- Regarding 1.2 of the Libertarian’s Platform: I strongly disagree with 1.2 because whatever legal or illegal drugs you take, affects all of us. [With as many injuries I've had --- and meds prescribed --- how well I know this lesson]. Use Prudential Judgment in all areas, of your life. Stay home, if you have to take a prescribed med and you are not sure of it’s affects on you or forego taking it. That’s my best advice. Take it or leave it.
- Regarding 1.3 of the Libertarian Platform: I strongly disagree with 1.3 because I think Homosexuality is a sin and a mental illness. Kids need to be protected from Sexual Predators. And, soldiers do not need the disorder of homosexuality counted as order. Because it is not orderly, it is not normal and it has no place in the Military. Soldiers shouldn’t have to worry about the enemy on the opposite side and the enemy within their ranks; or in their out-of-order military officer drunk on abusing their power or authority with Obama’s No Rules Whatsoever in the Military now. Bestiality and Homosexuality is now legal in the Military. I STRONGLY DETEST THIS. Out law it now! I disagree with Libertarians’ influence on relaxing our laws. Laws must build from Divine Law and Natural Law.
- Abortion is Murder of An Unborn Human already viable since Conception. For Libertarians who keep out of the Abortion Issue in Our Public Debates and Laws is to Give-Up Defending Human Life of the Most Vulnerable Members of Our Society – Those Holy Innocents who are in most danger of being murdered, by their mother’s consent and their doctor’s complicity. Libertarian Views result in more abortions, due to their heads being in the sand. Not to decide to defend human life, is to decide in favor of the Serious Sin of Ommission. Hardline Informed Libertarians are ommissive in defending ALL HUMAN LIFE – especially the MOST VULNERABLE AMONGST US. [I VOTE PRO-LIFE!]
This is enough information – for those of you who are Catholic and Libertarian to Re-think your Party Preference. Put it on your To-Read-List before Mistakenly Voting Against Your Catholic Faith.
WE MUST BE INFORMED VOTERS.
Now, I just have to find my Absentee Ballot. “Saint Anthony – Find.” [He's Patron Saint of Lost Items]. I am going to be an “Elections Officer on Elections Day.” I am going into the City Hall this week and “practice.” I pray to God that I do well.
I did not know the Libertarian’s Party Platform until today. Now, I know. And I won’t soon forget it. You cannot be Catholic and Libertarian. It’s an Oxymoron. Of course, if you’re like me, and did not know their Party’s Platform until today, then it is not a sin. Now that you know, you must give your “Assent of your Mind, to the Mind of Christ and His Catholic Church“ and do not vote for any Libertarian Candidate for any Political Office.
QUESTION: Does Cardinal Wuerl ever correct the priests in his Archdiocese?
This is evil.
“Priests for Life filed a lawsuit in February against the Health and Human Services mandate that all employers provide contraception to their employees free of charge. That lawsuit will continue, Pavone said.
“Priests for Life will remain vigilant on the issue of contraception,” Father Pavone said. “The mandate is a brazen attack on our religious liberty. Today’s ruling on Obamacare was a setback, but it is not the end of the battle.”
My Two Cents Worth
Chief Justice Roberts was appointed by George W. Bush. Mr Roberts is proving to be a coward, and a stealth, liberal. He is a foolish Supreme Court Judge, and obviously a Liberal Catholic. God bless him. Living in God’s Will does not seem to be imperative, to him nor does it seem to inform his conscience. He was so wrong, in voting for ObamaCare.
Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen said, “Right is right, even if nobody believes it. And, Wrong is wrong, even if everybody believes it.”
Michigan people are so messed up. Pray for them.
God bless these bad Catholic Priests, with the grace of conversion. Poor Holy Father. Wasted money on their higher educations. I will pray for them.
