I was alerted to a story that the senate was drafting a resolution welcoming Pope Benedict XVI to the United States. And of course, the communist, treasonous, traitors known as the democratic party had a problem with it:
Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., crafted a resolution "Welcoming Pope Benedict XVI to the United States and recognizing the unique insights his moral and spiritual reflections bring to the world stage."
But when the resolution was circulated for approval of all the members, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., an outspoken "pro-choice" advocate, put on the brakes.
The offending language: "Whereas Pope Benedict XVI has spoken out for the weak and vulnerable, witnessing to the value of each and every human life."
A Boxer aide pointed specifically to the last 10 words of that sentence, saying it points directly to "pro-life" language.
Of course she'd have a problem with it. She's pro-death and that language is obviously pro-life. She makes it sound like she's opposing the 'rhetoric' but there is none. There is no reason to have a problem with the language. Unless you're admitting you don't value each and every human life...
And, like always, the Republican is asked to submi--er, compromise with the democrat, so the statement now stops at "weak and vulnerable". Wait! there's more:
Boxer also objected to another line that has since been changed.
The original line said: "Whereas Pope Benedict XVI has spoken approvingly of the vibrance of religious faith in the United States, a faith nourished by a constitutional commitment to religious liberty that neither attempts to strip our public spaces of religious expression nor denies the ultimate source of our rights and liberties."
It was changed to: "Whereas Pope Benedict XVI has spoken approvingly of the vibrance of religious faith in the United States, a faith nourished by a constitutional commitment to religious liberty."
So, lemme get this straight. The Constitution doesn't protect freedom of religion in public nor recognizes the source of our rights and liberties?
Well, at least not in the People's Republic of Amerika aka liberal-la-la-land.
That article then goes on showing Boxer's gratitude for Brownback's willingness to compromise. I only saw him acquiesce to a pro-murder atheist. There was no compromise, only "If you don't do what I want I'll make a stink."
Leave it to democrats to have a problem with protecting "all"human life and acknowledging there is a source of authority higher than them and their unending jihad against religion.
Is there any doubt these guys are communists? Everything that was cut-out, the pope himself has said. More evidence that you cannot be democrat and a Catholic in good conscience. Any opportunity to spread their tripe and censor anyone who opposes them. You'd think they could let it go for the occaision. But I guess it was just too tempting.
No rest for the wicked.
