and hopes you don't learn about it until after the election.
MATTHEW 25 NETWORK: run by the same anti-Catholic woman who once was John Kerry's Director of Religious Outreach (one of two he fired).
This is the jaw-droppingly so-called "Christians/Pro-Lifers For Obama" group, mentioned in comments at this post about Obama supporting unfettered taxpayer-funded abortion.
The scripture quote MATTHEW 25 NETWORK uses as its masthead and motto, just leaves my mouth gaping open:
"'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'"
And on their website they speak of "Christians across the country are answering the Gospel call to care for our neighbor, especially the most vulnerable..." and "promoting life with dignity, caring for the least of these."
How much more vulnerable, how much more "least of these" can you get than the unborn human being?
(eye twitch begins)
Isn't it convenient that so-called Christians like Mara Vanderslice, M25Network's leader, and company can quote that scripture and not only twist it 180 degrees backward to allow for abortion, but also ignore these quotes also from scripture? Here's just 3, there are plenty more:
"Shall I bring a mother to the point of birth, and yet not let her child be born? says the Lord. Or shall I allow her to conceive yet close her womb? says your God." ~ Isaiah 66:9Vanderslice "was director of religious outreach for the Kerry campaign in 2004 but was 'silenced' when Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, publicized her connection with various far-left political groups."
"My chosen ones shall long enjoy the product of their hands. They shall not work in vain, nor beget children for sudden destruction." Isaiah 65:22-23
"Today I have set before you life and death...CHOOSE LIFE SO THAT YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN MAY LIVE." ~ Deut. 30:19-20a
"In an article in [June 18, 2004's] Washington Times, reporter Julia Duin says that Mara Vanderslice, the Kerry campaign's director of religious outreach, is no longer permitted to talk to the press. Vanderslice was exposed on June 14  in a Catholic League news release as being a far left-wing activist who has spoken at rallies held by the notoriously anti-Catholic group, ACT UP. The Kerry campaign is now reportedly in a "panic mode" over this revelation."
Don't take Catholic League's word for it: read about it here too.
Vanderslice is the Democrats' wolf-in-sheep's-clothing wunderkind: "Mara Vanderslice['s]...old organization, Common Good Strategies, is credited with helping Strickland, [Bob] Casey [Jr.], Kansas Gov.Kathleen Sebelius, and Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm...win election in 2006 by emphasizing their religious backgrounds."
All of whom have voting records that prove they support abortion more than they support the unborn's right to life.
The Curt Jester has even more quotes to remind Matthew 25 Network about, the best one being this:
How about Matthew 13:25 "but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away."Another outing of another flip-flop for Obama's professed distate for PACs supporting McCain.
In reality, it has always been OK that PACs (like Matthew 25 and Planned Parenthood Action Fund) support Obama.
