Why Catholics Supporting Obama are Hypocrites

Posted by Troy on 9th November 2012 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Catholics chose to support Obama over Romney in the past election.  This makes them hypocrites, and I shall prove why.

Why do Catholics support Democrats?   Most of them will tell you that it is because the Democrats help the poor, and this is what the church is most interest in doing.  This is, of course, stupidity.  No, that is not what the church is interested in doing.  Technically speaking, the church is interested in “saving” people.  I should imagine that Jesus would say that it is better to be saved and starve than to be fat and burn in the pits of hell for all eternity.  Besides that, I don’t believe that Jesus would think that the government should steal (take our money at the tip of the sword) to perform “good works.”  No, that’s supposed to come from the heart.

The government is not the place to do works of charity anyway.  When a church feeds someone or when a Christian feeds someone, it is likely that that person will see that it is a good religion and will convert and be saved.  What happens when the government feeds someone?  They become dependent on the government.  Without proper supervision and force, that person is much more likely to become a leech.  You don’t feel guilty about stealing from the government or from a big company the way you do when you steal from a church or from an individual person.  Just common knowledge.  The bigger the entity, the more justified you feel in leeching.  So the church is promoting dependence and enslavement to the government which at every turn seeks to destroy all public displays of religion.

Speaking of which, then you have the contraception mandate.  Now, I freely admit that most Catholics are hypocrites on this and use birth control, and I have no problem with that.  However, the church itself thinks it’s a sin.  By refusing to stand up to the government on this, Catholics have basically told the Pope, “Fuck off and buy us birth control, old man!”  Way to go guys!  And for what?  So that someone wouldn’t have to pay out $10 a month for their own birth control?  Skip 2 cups of coffee.  You’re there!  Downgrade your cable or cell phone.  Boom!  You want birth control?  Allocate your funds accordingly.  It’s no one’s obligation to buy it for you if they don’t want to.  You’ve traded religious freedom for $10 a month.  What kind of Judas are you?  At least he got 30 pieces of silver.  With the way Obama’s destroyed the dollar, that’s gotta be worth a LOT more than $10.  Learn to negotiate better.

Then there’s gay marriage.  Look forward to being forced to accept gay marriage.  They could even force you to do it in your church.  They’ve already proven with the birth control they don’t care about your religious beliefs.  Gays have a right to be married, and they have a right to be Catholic, ergo, they have a right to be married in a Catholic church.  Personally, this issue is not important to me in the least, but supposedly Catholics are against it, but as I said, it doesn’t appear that they are against anything too bad.

Finally, there’s abortion.  So you want to help feed the poor?  Over a million abortions a year.  Do you think the government feeding the poor saves over a million lives a year?  You are net killing people by your political affiliations.  The touted number of abortions due to rape and incest?  10,000.  Yep, there ya go.  Facts and figures.

I have nothing more to say to you.  Reconcile your political and religious beliefs.  At least Muslims are consistent.

Long Live the Constitution!

Who should give charity?

Posted by Troy on 9th September 2012 in Human Nature

Catholics tend to support Democrats.  A Catholic asked me why this is.  The reason the church usually gives is that the Democratic party supports giving to the poor.  They overlook the whole abortion, gay marriage, and increased acceptance of divorce, but okay.  But here’s a question: Why do they support the Democrats for “giving to the poor?”  You see, the thing is that the only way the government can give to the poor is through coercion.  When the poor vote to take money from the rich to have it redistributed to the poor, they are not engaging in charity.  They are  engaging in theft.  Is it really any different than if men took a vote and ordered women to have sex with them?  People aren’t supposed to pay taxes as their form of “charity.”  They are supposed to give money to people, churches, and other charities.  I don’t think Jesus will say, “Good man!  You filed your 1040 and didn’t even claim some of your legitimate itemized deductions so that the government will have more money to support the poor!  Good going!  Welcome to Heaven!”  There are also some bad side effects to the government taking over charity.  Those receiving aid have no moral obligation to the giver of the aid.  When friends and neighbors help someone, the donee feels, typically, the need to live up to the help by trying to get to a point where they don’t need help.  No one has that feeling to the government.  Also, if the church is helping someone, that person has a greater chance to converting to that religion and maybe making positive changes to their lives.  Again, this does not happen with help from the government.  The government is also very inefficient with the money.  There is a lack of policing of the funds.  If you give your friend $100 and then catch him getting lap dances down at the strip club, you’re probably not going to give him any more money, are ya?  The government will.  Finally, the government taking over the role of charity provider degrades the moral fiber of society.  People start to think that the government will take care of people, and they will stop giving to charity themselves.  There is a reason why America far outpaces the rest of the world in charitable giving.  It is also a key reason why Republicans tend to give much more to charities than Democrats (statistically true).

Long Live the Constitution!
