Catholics, Kerry and the "Single-Issue" Voter

Smart post over at Against the Grain. Required reading for all Catholics for Bush.

Hi,
I think you should be aware of this group called "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" and the book authored by their leader, John O'Neill, called "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry".

The co-author of the book, Jerome R. Corsi, PhD, is a virulent anti-Catholic.

I really think it is important that George W. Bush distance himself from this fringe group. Senator John McCain has already denounced the group, and I think Bush should too.

This is the sort of thing that makes Catholics second-guess voting for Republicans.

I don't know if this got through.

John McCain has already denounced the group. I think George W. Bush should too. This is the sort of thing that makes Catholics nervous about voting for Republicans.

I agree with the anonymous poster...
Search under Jrlc on the Free Republic
site. You will find a torrent of abuse
that is surprising... it is only a matter
of time before this gets out, and associating
with these people will not help win Catholic
votes... we all know this is a swing vote and
such bigotry confirms the fears of many potential
votes.

What are you talking about single issue voters. Here are what the Catholics for Bush are voting on. We believe that the candidate who will do the most for terrorism is George W Bush. We believe that his record supports that. WE do not like John Kerry's voting record on the support of our military. He has had 19 yrs to show his stance, and he just hasn't. We do not like the speech he gave to Congress in 1971. That is one issue. We are Pro Life, Anti Abortion. WE do not want abortion supported by a Catholic in our country, and John Kerry has publically defied the Pope's position, the Catechism and he doesn't seem to care that he risks excommunication by doing so. That is the 2nd issue. Catholics for Bush believe that the current system we have with social programs is wrong. WE don't believe that it follows Catholic teaching. WE don't believe that it is dignified, because how can any social program be dignified if you can't get off of it. Dependence on government is NOT dignified. We believe that if you want to choose your charities you should do so in a virtuous and genuine way and not let other do the giving for you like taxation does. It is more genuine to be anonymous in your giving first of all, it is more virtuous and genuine to have to do some work before you do your giving, and NOT let someone else like the government do it for you. We believe that we want to KNOW that our taxes would go to the right people and that NONE of our money goes to causes such as planned parenthood, programs that keep and use people for votes and dependency. Do you need a few more reasons?
