Brady's voting record?
Brady is pro-choice and voted against President Bush’s restrictions on funding to family planning groups in 2001. Over the years, he has supported minors’ abortion rights, voting in 2005 for the right for those under 18 years of age to obtain abortions across state lines without parental consent. He voted against the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which prohibits health insurance companies from offering abortion coverage in a plan to any citizen. He opposed a proposal to prohibit federally funded abortion services. Over the past fifteen years, organizations such as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL), the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, and Planned Parenthood rated him 100%.Sure not the voting record of a "devout Catholic" who follows Church teaching. But in Democrat circles this is exactly what a "devout Catholic" is. Who else is in the "devout Catholic" peanut gallery? Jim Moran, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Joe Biden...all rabid pro-aborts. What does it say when all these "devout Catholics" are in love with a pope? Odd to say the least. What did Jesus say about what would happen to His followers. On the road to Calvary he asked the weeping women, "If they do this in the green wood, what will they do in the dry?" Does any serious Catholic believe we are NOT in the dry wood? So what gives with this papal adulation by those who hate what the Church teaches, but profess to be "devout" members?
I'm praying for the pope and the magisterium and studying the faith. We are living in troubling times and many who are not well-grounded on the rock of the faith are likely to be lost in the storm of confusion battering the Church. Remember John Bosco's dream and anchor yourself to the pillars of the Eucharist and devotion to the Blessed Mother.
