Democrats first, Catholics second
In a Feb. 10 letter to the editor, a writer takes issue with Youngstown Diocese Bishop George Murry’s letter on the health care law dealing with insurance coverage of birth control, abortion, and drugs and supplies. It is interesting to note his criticism of teaching us to be obedient of laws. Apparently he believes we should obey man-made law and disregard or ignore God’s law, the Ten Commandants, which include thou shalt not kill and thou shalt not commit adultery, to name two.
The problem with Catholics is there are two groups. One group is Democrat first and all the party stands for and Catholic second or less. The other group is Catholic first and political affiliation second or less. The priests and nuns who are Democrats first will tell you to vote for Democrats who defend and make abortion possible, because you have to look at the good they do for others. Mother Teresa, who did good works for others all her life, did not get one press pass on abortion.
The Ten Commandments are simple and to the point with no small print or exceptions. What part of thou shalt not kill don’t you understand? God chooses when we are born, where we are born, and who our father will be and he alone knows when we will be called to judgment, and if we are free of sin, rewarded by joining him in heaven.
