Mojomama posted equally graphic pictures of the results of Bush's invasion of Iraq on page two of this thread. Bush's evil foreign policy agenda has been enabled by "pro-lifers" who blindly vote Republican year after year, which has not saved a single unborn baby and never will. Without their support, this monster of inanity would be back in Texas where he belongs.
I don't know about anyone else here, but I have never ever "blindly voted Republican year after year". I look at the issues - and not just "abortion issues". Period. If I don't like either candidate (and I can't ever recall liking either of them no matter what Presidential election it was), then I vote 3rd party. If there is no decent 3rd party, then I don't vote. Period. I have never bought into the "lesser of two evils" or "voting against the other party" concept, and I doubt I will change my mind anytime soon. However, each person must decide that for himself. Regardless, if Hillary gets in, it's going to get ugly, no if's and's or but's about it. With that being said, in all actuality, it's going to continue to get uglier and uglier no matter who's in there. That's practically a given.
Abortion is not the problem. It is a symptom of the problem: a society that, long before 1973, had turned away from a Christian and hierarchical social order (which it is not necessary to be a believing Christian to admire) and is obsessed with "equality," "progress," and "freedom." And yes, while I wasn't the one to bring it up on this thread, the issue of monarchism versus republicanism is relevant to that. It is not such a very big step from "I have the right to choose my head of state" to "I have the right to choose an abortion."
You are quite right that abortion is a symptom of the problem. As for everything else in the above quote, I'm not going there.
It's not denying the evil of abortion to recognize that voting for the U.S. Republican Party is never going to be part of the solution. It's everything else that traditional Catholics do on a regular basis--attending and defending the Traditional Latin Mass, raising large Catholic families--that could be part of the solution, and it really shouldn't be "insulting" to say that on a traditional Catholic forum.
Again, you are presuming that we vote Republican. You have no idea (other than me, now that I posted it) how people are voting, unless you are somehow privy to their voting record.
And yes, it is quite insulting to make demeaning comments about the "myopic obsession" of those who sacrifice blood, sweat and tears in their fight to save the lives of unborn children.
Those who vote Republican are every bit as responsible for the horrible images that mojomama posted as those who vote Democrat are responsible for the horrible images that AdoramusTeChriste posted. I stand by what I said.
You can stand by what you said forever and a day, but that does not make you infallible on this subject. Like it or not, we Americans do not have a monarchy, and we have to do the best we can with the system we have been dealt. It's that simple.
