John Edwards & His Blaspheming Staff

The following is from Insight Scoop. Like I said before, the war on Christianity begins not in the distant future, not 'within our life times' but rather it has already begun.

Kathryn Jean Lopez of NRO wonders why Edwards, who is planning to make a run for the presidency in '08, would hire someone to run his campaign blog who pens these sort of musings about the Catholic Church:

I suspect Pope Ratz will give into the urge eventually to come out and say there’s no limbo and unbaptized babies go straight to hell. He can’t help it; he’s just a dictator like that. Hey, fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, the Pope’s gotta tell women who give birth to stillborns that their babies are cast into Satan’s maw. The alternative is to let Catholic women who get abortions feel that it’ll all work out in the end, which is just not doable, due to that Jesus-like compassion the Pope is so fond of. Still, it’s going to be bad PR for the church, so you can sort of see why the Pope is dragging ass.

Which all brings me to recommending this great post by Austin Cline at Jesus’ General about why authoritarian types are so damn interested in cobbling people’s sex lives and meddling around in people’s private sexual decisions, like in this case why the Catholic church is so interested in making sure that people can’t make the perfectly sound decision to limit their family size while enjoying a healthy sex life—either you’re going to have to forgo birth control or you’re going to have to feel guilty to the point where you fear you’re casting babies into hellfire, by their standards. It’s a way to disrupt people’s lives so the church can get more control.

And:

One thing I vow here and now—you [BEEP!] who want to ban birth control will never sleep. I will [BEEP!] without making children day in and out and you will know it and you won’t be able to stop it. Toss and turn, you mean, jealous [BEEP!]. I’m not going to be “punished” with babies. Which makes all your efforts a failure. Some non-procreating women escaped. So give up now. You’ll never catch all of us. Give up now.

[BEEP!]s not in original. Read the entire story here.
And this from the paid staff of someone running for president of the United States? This is who many Catholics would likely vote for?

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God have mercy on us and the whole world. Amen.

Isn't it refreshing in some way to see the hatred presented honestly? I prefer that to patronizing double-speak that puts the lukewarm to sleep. This sort of talk is healthy for Catholics to hear.

I can see what you're saying. I dont know if Ive ever felt sicker than when I read her comments after clicking that link. Its easily the worst blasphemy I ever heard.

And yet Edwards is still employing the women. What a fraud.
