Obama's Catholic supporters

Here is a list of supporters of Barack Obama's candidacy for president, with their faith-based reasons. Several Catholics who need a catechism lesson are on the list, and a Catholic priest.

Fr. Pfleger, just what part of infanticide don't you understand?!

Lifesite News explains:
“I think Barack Obama is in a class of his own,” he said.As an Illinois Senator Obama had the unstinting approval of the Illinois Planned Parenthood Council for his dependable support of pro-abortion legislation.
Now, after a short two years in the U.S. Senate, Obama has earned 100% ratings from pro-abortion groups across the board, including NARAL Pro-Choice America and the National Organization for Women.In 2002 he voted against a bill to protect or offer medical care to babies that survive botched abortions. Prior to that he opposed an Illinois State ban on partial-birth abortion, and refused his vote to a bill mandating internet pornography filters in schools.
Dr Alveeda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, says "The fight against abortion is a new frontier in the civil rights movement," she said, according to an article in the Mississippi Daily Journal.
"My uncle often said that we don't follow through," King added. "He said that we admonish black women not to abort their babies but we don't show them how to care for them, don't give them options for life."
King bemoaned the number of black leaders today who embrace abortion.
The newspaper said King told the audience that African-American political leaders sold out their pro-life views for support from abortion advocates and other political groups for promoting civil rights.
"We didn't understand how dramatically abortion was affecting our community," she said. "The tradeoff between concentrating too much on other social issues and ignoring abortion has been a deadly tradeoff."

Obama can't help the poor if he's in favor of killing them before and after they are born!
