I can't stop thinking about the Saddleback Faith Forum between Senator Obama and Senator McCain which was moderated by Reverend Rick Warren, last night.
Listening to Obama's answers, or explanations, concerning his stance on abortion, I was disgusted, and horrified at some of his statements. Even knowing how he has voted concerning the issue of partial birth abortions, actually hearing him speak about it sickened me even more. The one about it being above his pay-grade took the cake, though! But still, there were those who sat on news panels today, and tried to explain what he was really saying when he said that.
His cronies and devoted followers, and advisors can sugar-coat his words, say that he was really saying 'this', when he was saying 'that', and praise him to high Heaven, but it still does not change the fact that he is an inherently evil man, if he can condone such a thing as partial birth abortion. He may not think so, or even realize it, but who, or what, could endorse something that evil, if not being just as evil?
I came across some videos on here a couple of years ago, quite by accident, showing aborted babies, some of which were actually 'live' births, but killed while still partially in the womb, and it was horrifying! Some of them actually have their brains sucked out, and their little bodies are hacked to pieces..is that anything but evil, and does this country realize that? Do we care? I'm wondering how really informed most citizens are about such things? I think many just go around day-to-day, in their own little world, totally unaware of the real world, and what is happening on a daily basis.
Infanticide isn't taking place only in other countries..it is happening right here in the United States of America. In this great country which has been the guardian of life for so many, we are actually trying to get a man elected who will think nothing of allowing the taking of lives of innocent babies, in a most heinous manner. If we aren't all crying, we should be.
On another note, Reverend Warren, was on Larry King tonight, trying to clarify whether or not Senator McCain had actually been isolated from hearing the questions asked of Senator Obama. While he was speaking, he actually clarified something for me concerning a question asked of Obama.
Thinking that neither of the candidates were to be informed of the questions which were to be asked, I was surprised when Reverend Warren asked Obama about approving some kind of fund to help orphans, and Obama laughingly replied that he had cheated, somewhat, and had done some research on the subject, before coming on the show. Then tonight, Warren actually said that he had given the question to him before the show, because it didn't seem fair to catch him off-guard, or something like that. He said that he had not given the question to McCain, because he had gotten there late.
So, now I know that at least one of them had prior knowledge of at least one question, but what was the real deal? Did they, or did they not have access to the questions to be asked, before the show?
Whatever it was, Senator McCain far outshone Senator Obama in all of his answers, and in his presentation.
Senator McCain has his own weaknesses, and whether or not I agree with all of his policies, there is one thing on which we both agree.
When asked, "At what point is the baby entitled to human rights?"
Senator McCain, without hesitation, answered: "At the moment of conception."
That gets my vote.
