Voice of the People Submission

Sometimes RTLM supporters write to the South Bend Tribune's Voice of the People column. But they don't always get printed. Here is one of those submissions.

Kamala Harris clearly lied to the American people during the debate on Wednesday, October 7th. She referred to Joe Biden as a practicing Catholic. Biden supports late term abortions. A person who supports abortion cannot say that he/she is a practicing Catholic. Just because you can dip your fingers into a holy water font, genuflect somewhat gracefully or light a blessed votive candle near a saint statue does not mean you are a Catholic.

Practicing Catholics live by certain beliefs they hold to be true. They adhere to these scriptures to guide their lives.

You shall not kill. -Exodus 20:13

I have set before you life and death... choose life, then... -Deuteronomy 30:19

Truly you have formed my inmost being. You knit me in my mother's womb. I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made. -Psalm 139:13,14

Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Do not hinder them." -Matthew 19:14

Abortion is the opposite of these inspired words of God.

Abortion kills.

It is a choice for death.

It takes the baby being wonderfully made out of a mother's womb.

It does not allow a child to come to anyone, since it hinders a child from ever being born.

Sadly, there are Catholic priests and others who hold ministerial positions within the Church who would vote for Biden. Through their preaching and by their example, it is their responsibility as shepherds to lead their flocks to safe pastures, not drive them over dangerous cliffs.
