    ......it is the duty of catholic politicians to protect life? No. It is the duty of politicians to serve the people who voted for them.

    Hautey is one of those posters who can find a right to an abortion in the constitution, but can't find the right for one to keep and bear arms.....

    By some of his actions, Hautey has shown he has no interest in "protecting life".



    That is all I can say up here.

    I am so glad to be rid of that ridiculous religion. No offense to Catholics.

    If I am correct I assumed that she informed the voters that she was a catholic before they even elected her to office. So if she was a actual catholic and stood up against abortion then the voters would have no one to blame but themselves because they voted for catholic.

    Should we then refuse to vote for Catholics as the only alternative to being dictated to by a non-elected politician (which is what the pope has become)?
    Would you vote for a far right wing conservative? I wouldn't vote for a liberal,anarchist, homosexual(unless he was a adamantly against gay marriage and he was a conservative) nor would I vote for a devil worshiper. Why should you vote for someone whose views you disagree with?


    I believe Kennedy had it right in that he was a Catholic in his personal life but an elected official in his professional life.
    Then he wasn't really a catholic, you do not throw your religion under the bus just to get votes and that also applies to other religions as well. He was just another politician scumbag who threw his religion under the bus for cheap votes.

    The two do not mix, nor should they.
    Ho only said that **** to justify not really being a catholic.
    If you are actually religious, a member of a particular religion then you follow that religion's views and beliefs and it should guide your decision making regardless if it personal or political. If not then you have no business calling yourself what ever religion you claim to be.


    Before you accuse me of being pro-catholic. No I am not pro-catholic, I think Catholic are pagans not Christians. Anyone who preys/venerates to someone other than God is not a christian. Thats why I refer to catholics as pagans or when I talk about about their beliefs I say Catholicism, not Christianity .

    Who says?

    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
    Edmund Burke.

    It doesn't really matter anyway, what you are suggesting is he serve the "people" as some abstract mass at best or more probably his party. Hardly great positions.

    Anyway Hateuy clearly has a strange agenda towards the church and will seemingly take whatever opportunity he can to rant against it. I see no reason to take him seriously.

    Re: Pope to US Speaker Pelosi: Reject abortion support

    Basically all this is is invoking Rousseau's potentially totalitarian ideal that gov't should be about the "general will", this being concieved of the people's will taken outside of the normal associations of society even to the extent of destroying these. One is not meant to see oneself as a Catholic, New York American but an abstract general American acting abstractly for the "general will", all associations and loyalties outside the people as an abtract whole are considered distractions at best or more probably as evil entities that need to be removed.

    Rousseau infamously considered this will could often carried out by an impartial, "Enlightened", single legislator and one could be forgiven for mistaking this for the modern liberal ideal of "Enlightened" judicial activism, which basically amounts to judicial dictatorship, as a method to create law and social policy.

    Robert Nisbet was correct though when he pointed out no doctrine is quite so revolutionary nor so totalitarian as this of Rousseau's and it is interesting to see it animates a lot of modern liberalism, or should we say Jacobinism, still.

    So you are saying that you would vote for a right wing politician?

    There is reason why there is not a" I could care less who wins" option. It is because we pick politicians whose views closely match ours. Thats why you vote for liberal politicians and I vote for conservative politicians



    Not those of a religion.

    IF you are religious then that religion you prescribe to is part of your beliefs. Its no different than a politician who is for gay marriage or a politician who is against abortion or a politician who is against illegal immigration for our outsourcing. You don't throw those views under the bus just because you got elected.


    Nanci Pelosi, Sarah Palin, Obama etc were elected by the people who wanted their interests served. Not the Catholic Church, The baptist church, or TUCC. When the Catholic Church has a vote in our elections then maybe I'll care about politicians serving the interests of a church do.

    Again if you actually claim to be part of a religion you do not throw that religion under the bus just because you got elected to office.

    I don't know about you but if I vote for a politician who claims to be of a particular political ideology and a certian religion then I expect that politician to uphold the beliefs of that ideology and religious beliefs.



    If politicians claim to be a of a particular faith and they are not practicing or abiding by that faith then they should be called on it by their fellow religious members and leaders.

    The funny thing is the right to keep and bear arms is actually stated in the constitution.
