Biden-Ryan debate highlights
nation's Catholic political divide

Los Angeles Times, by Mitchell Landsberg

Dubuque, Iowa — Dr. Jack Dolehide remembers the trinity on display in his boyhood home in Chicago in the 1960s: There, in the center, was an iconic image of Jesus. On one side, Mayor Richard J. Daley, the city's legendary Democratic boss. On the other, President Kennedy. Then one day about 1969 or '70, the unthinkable occurred. Dolehide's father took down the politicians' portraits, ripped them into pieces and threw them away. He had become a Republican. Today, Jack Dolehide, 57, is a well-established physician in Dubuque and among many Catholics who plan to vote for Mitt Romney

Catholic Christians put Our Savior before men, especially politicians. We pray to the Lord, not to Jack Kennedy. We pray for the Saints' intercession on behalf of the soul of the late alcoholic woman abuser/killer Teddy Kennedy. We don't pray to Teddy.

Catholic Democrats, especially the non-thinking party-line type put politicians before God and politics before faith and dogma. That's why they listen to life-affirming homilies on Sunday and throw their support to Nancy Pelosi and unrestricted abortion and infanticide when Mass is ended. They pray for social justice and vote for programs that purport to accomplish this through covetousness and greed by program adminstrators.

Most Catholics have seen this disconnect and division for decades now. Focusing on God's word rather than that of any politician will mend the divide, but fewer and fewer seem willing to do this.

If you haven't already discovered Fr. Sammy Maletta on Youtube, here's a link to the website of his church. This is one on-fire Catholic priest who is deeply involved as a canon lawyer in the health care and religious liberty debates. This guy is beyond brave: http://www.stjohnparish.org/homilies.php (click on the first homily listed).

The Church is full of imperfect people for we are all sinners striving to be saints. There have been many in the hierarchy that have made mistakes, and have hurt the Body of Christ.

That being said, I believe that now that Obama with his health plan has forced our Bishops to finally take a stand against the Democrats and their policies; they are now asking us all to stand with them.

This is a departure from those who believe that social justice is more important than the right to life. We must put aside our differences as Catholics and stand united for the freedom that has been granted to us by our founders and stand for life.

I don't believe that you can be a Democrat and a Catholic at the same time. One of the reasons I gave up on the Catholic church is that they allow abortionists like Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry to dwell among them. Another is all of their confusion and drift over homosexuality, sexuality in general, feminism, and socialism.

Biden stands for government (marxist)tyranny. Ryan stands for constitutional individual liberty. Which one do you want?

The Obama administration exhibits real animosity for Catholic institutions through their unconstitutional HHS mandates which deny the basic religious freedoms our founders fought for. They use people like Biden and Sebelius for cover with Catholics.

Unfortunately for them Catholics aren't buying what they're selling anymore. We don't care how much ice cream Biden quietly delivers to little old nuns. Funny how it still ended up being reported. I bet Biden was miffed and wanted that kept secret and everything.

Very similar post in the Washington Post today, talked about the divide. They highlighted how Biden had questioned transubstantiation while in school (and apparently was praised for it...not sure by who -- no one Catholic should have). And said his mother told him he'd better not kiss the Pope's ring when he met him (didn't explain why).

Not sure why he self identifies as a Catholic.

Mandela Has More in Common

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

HealthCare.gov transactions fail
10 percent of time: official
Reuters, by Caroline Humer    Original Article

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups. Mr. Cochran, who has raised less than $1 million

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
