"Catholic" priest and family throw softballs at Obama

The Catholic News Service is reporting that in his swing through the nation, Barack Hussein Obama chose the home of a self-described Catholic family for a question and answer period.

Never was Obama questioned by any of the Catholics in attendance, to include a Catholic priest and a Catholic school teacher, in regards to Obama's stint as an Illinois state senator, why he three times failed to vote in favor of the Induced Infant Liability Act (he simply voted "present"), which would have granted "person" status to any child who might have survived the abortion procedure.

And never did any of these "Catholics" question Obama of his support for the slaughter of millions of unborn children every year in this country. Catholic family's backyard is a stop for Obama on his swing through Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNS) -- President Barack Obama chose the backyard of a Catholic Des Moines family Sept. 29 to talk about issues ranging from the economy and taxes to education, poverty and health care.

The president arrived at the home of Jeff and Sandy Hatfield Clubb and their two children in the tree-lined Beaverdale neighborhood about 10 a.m. and stayed for more than an hour. He spoke to a group of about 80 people, mostly friends of the Clubbs who sat in lawn chairs provided by neighbors.

We live in the Des Moines area. I knew 'he' was coming to town, but had no idea he'd be frolicking with catholics. I've been fuming over this outrage all day.

If you look at the Diocese of Des Moines Facebook page most of the comments are against his visit, his policies, him...etc.

Our Bishop, Richard Pates, is still relatively new here. We've been trying to get a read on him....but haven't been able to. But boy oh boy, if he had anything to do with this....

GRRRR!!

PS,

Remember quite awhile ago I told you that we were having an internal struggle whether to attend the Latin Mass (in a basement) or the NO in a Basilica? We finally made the official switch. Our sons (ages 12 and 9) are the only two boys in the diocese that are learning to serve the Latin Mass. We are still in the basement because our Bishop doesn't want to inconvenience the NO people upstairs.

We figure the first Christians had to worship underground, so we're in good company.

Obama also came to Albuquerque a couple of days ago and spent some time in the South Valley, a traditional Hispanic area, with a family. I don't know the results of this visit as the press said nothing about how it turned out.
