Not all Catholics are created equal, as Evangelicals, atheists and agnostics think. In the 2008 Presidential election, 54% of Catholics voted for Obama. THAT IS AN ABSURDITY. The general public only knows what it sees…rouge nuns that espouse socialism which equals a Liberal Agenda.
Let me disclaim, as I always do: As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I was once Catholic. I have a ‘working knowledge’ of the basics of Catholicism but I am smart enough to say that I don’t know everything. My mom’s side of the family is the Catholic side but not one of them were practicing Catholics but loved to say that they are so. Even that being so, it shows how unequipped some people are and love to throw their religion around like a Frisbee.
Even I knew what the role of nuns was – they are servants. They give up everything to pray, give and serve. Cloistered nuns stay out of society to serve while other nuns are out there serving with works like providing meals, nursing the sick and helping the poor. While I do not agree with Catholicism, I love that these nuns are willing to get their hands dirty. The general public thinks that all nuns are in black robes all the time – not true.
But I gotta ask…what is up with these rogue nuns assuming the role of political antagonist?
On their site it says, “The new law [March 2010 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act] promotes quality healthcare that is more accessible, affordable, universal and pro-life.” Help me out, my catholic friends, but how is Obamacare prolife? And not only that, but Obamacare squashes our right to religious freedom…so I have to ask…
Why is the Vatican putting up with rogue nuns that are going outside of basic Catholic teaching to so-called political social justice and universalism?
As I perused their site, Networklobby.org (self-described progressive national Catholic social justice lobby), I have to admit my ignorance in knowing that this group actually existed; come to find out, they’ve been around for 40 years (same amount of time as Roe…?). As I mentioned, I did not know that such a thing CAN ever exist within the Catholic realm even in the United States. However, they quietly promote abortion and homosexuality when lobbying with progressive Liberals, even though the nuns call it ‘peacemaking’.
These rogue nuns push for so-called social justice AND socialism, are shoving Catholics and others in front of the oncoming Obama freight train this November. I absolutely understand ministering to the least of these (Matthew 25:31-46), but these women are budding up to the White House which the gently promote.
Side note: I have to say that I was a bit spooked when they thought it was okay to build the mosque on Ground Zero. It’ll take me a minute to digest that one.
My dear Catholic friends, please don’t fall for this farce…it’s meant to ‘peacefully’ re-elect Obama and change your mind against basic Catholic teachings.
