Let me comment on ONE of the items from the recent Saddleback Civil Forum, particularly the answers of Barak Obama on key moral issues of our day.
WHEN DOES A BABY GAIN CIVIL RIGHTS? In a rhetorical dodge, Obama said answering such a question was “above his pay grade.” As president, will he not need to protect the civil rights of all Americans? Shouldn’t a president have an answer to this question? Of course! Yet this same US Senator doggedly supports the taking of life in abortions.
When asked, Senator McCain said very simply: “life begins at conception” — and, thus, civil rights for the unborn do as well. Amen.
Fellow believers: If you listen to the positions of the two candidates for president, there are some clear differences that ought to inform your vote.
