Ray McInerny, Sr., and his wife Jean, have lived in New Berlin for 32 years. A retired graphic artist, he now paints for his own enjoyment. This blog will attempt to present items of general interest to his New Berlin neighbors.
One of our local bloggers who hides behind her blog and doesn't allow criticism loves to be the critic in charge of anyone the Huffington Post can convince her is bad.
While mocking Romney for making a change in his view on abortion from 1994 through 2012 she thinks that indicates he's short on character.
The President of the United States from the time he was a state senator in Illinois through his short stay in the U.S. Senate and Presidency has firmly clung to his belief that any child no matter how developed in the womb, or out of the womb, can be aborted. He's on record defending the right of medical staff to allow an aborted child who outlives an abortion to live in pain until it dies. And then like an old piece of butcher's waste is thrown into the trash.
Romney has changed from pro-abortion to pro-life in the 1994-2012 time span and you mock him for that. Do you condone all abortion for any reason as President Obama does? How any thinking person who has a realtionship with the Creator allows himself to believe that murder is o.k. when it serves the abortion industry and can't see that the act is breaking the Commandments lacks compassion and good judgement.
On September 22, 2012, at a conference at the Crown Plaza O'Hare Hotel in Rosemont, IL eight former abortion workers testified at the Pro-Life Action League. As was pointed out by Ann Scheidler, vice president of the Pro-Life Action League many of the doctors, nurses and workers are well meaning, compassionate people who thought they were helping women through a crisis. At this conference these eight people told of the struggle to eventually deny their work in this field. They also indicated that the transition made them lose many friends and co-workers because of the decision. Shall we mock those that have had first hand knowledge of this gruesome business when they alter their opinion?
And in the debate Thursday night Vice President Biden said in his response to coverage by Obamacare; "With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution -Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetwon hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital -none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact."
And the Catholic bishops respond with their own fact check to Biden by saying; "This is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for certian "religious employers." That exemption was made final in February and does not extend to "Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospltal, any hospital," or any other religious charity that offers its services to all, regardless of the faith of those served."
And while campaigning in Wisconsin Vice President Biden misled voters by saying Planned Parenthood, the nation's biggest abortion business doesn't do any abortions. Then he says about Romney/Ryan "Now these guys pledge that they're gonna de-fund Planned Parenthood, which under law cannot perform any abortions." Biden says this after professing how well Roman Catholicism helped develop him. Wow! Ever hear of "Thou Shalt Not Kill," Joe?
Planned Parenthood's own data indicate it to be the biggest abortion company in the United States.
Planned Parenthood did 329,445 abortions in 2010 while it provided prenatal care to only 31,08 women and referred only 841 women to adoption agencies. Planned Parenthood does 391 abortions for every adoption referral it makes and almost 11 abortions for every woman it helps with prenatal care. Smiling Joe laughs, mocks, ridicules an apponent but the lies and distortions he dispenses fools no one - but himself.
To make matters worse this administration has in Benghazi massacre stonewalled the mother of Sean Smith, who died there and the administration refused to give her answers. The mother said: "That's a funny subject. I begged them to tell me what was - what happened. I said I wanted to know all the details, all of the details no matter what it is, and I'll make up my own mind on it. and everyone of them, all the big shots over there told me that - they promised me that they would tell me what happened. As soon as they figure it out."
This poor soul has just lost her son and the leaders of the nation, Obama, Biden and Clinton can't help her in her misery. What a mocking crew this is.
I will take a man of character who alters his views when evidence compels him to do so. That is what a good leader does. He doesn't blame other administrations, run up a boat load of debt for our children, put millions out of work, add millions to the food stamp program, goes to the golf course as thousands upon thousands have lost their homes through bankruptcy, squandered billions on green energy and electric cars. That's the evidence of people who won't, can't, will not change their minds for the good of any other person. They only serve themselves in the long run.
Christians and Independents will have much to say in the upcoming election. If we think murder in the womb is murder we'll vote for Romney/Ryan.
