According to a document revealed by Creative Minority Report (CMR), we now have definitive proof that the pro-abortion mindset dwells even at the highest levels of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The document is a public campaign finance report for Planned Parenthood-endorsed pro-abortion candidate Wendy Davis listing Ralph McCloud as campaign treasurer during his first year as the Director of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).
The Catholic Church in America has been suffering from a profound division over abortion on the question of whether or not Catholics — the “biggest ‘swing faith’ in the country” — should ignore the issue when they go to the polls. While the bishops have maintained in varying degrees that abortion is not a negotiable issue for Catholics, a position born out in their opposition to Obamacare based solely on abortion, the revelation that the head of CCHD was an official in the campaign of a pro-abortion candidate shows the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops‘ (USCCB) failure on a mind-boggling level to be an organization that consistently defends life and dignity.
RealCatholicTV.com, in a documentary called Obama’s Counterfeit Catholics, blew open the story in 2010 of how multi-billionaire George Soros spent millions to ensure the election of Barack Obama by muddying up the waters on the abortion issue. Soros was able to accomplish this through a media campaign designed to fool Catholics into believing that abortion is not a primary issue of consideration. Having invested millions in the John Kerry campaign only to lose the Catholic vote, Soros worked through his Open Society Institute to make sure that he would not lose in his second attempt with the Obama campaign.
Why is there such division among Catholics in America on politics? What is it, precisely, that makes Catholics a huge “swing vote” demographic? The answer is more simple than you might think and extends across the globe to impact elections in every country where Catholics make up a significant part of the electorate. Like any other person, a Catholic will not vote for a candidate who is hostile toward his values and the primary issues to Catholics can be summed up basically in what Catholics refer to as the Four Sins that Cry Out to Heaven for Justice: Murder (expressed in the issue of “abortion”), Homosexuality (expressed in the issue of “gay rights”), Poverty (expressed in our debates about “the economy”), and Worker Rights (expressed in our debates about “labor policy”).
