Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
On Tuesday, many Catholics will cast their ballots for Barack Obama. That is shameful, disgusting.
I’ve blogged previously about my outrage over Catholics rejecting their faith to vote for the biggest baby-killer to ever run for the White House, a candidate with no regard for the value of human life.
Catholic Answers Action has produced the Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics. Inside the guide you’ll find the, “The Five Non-Negotiable Issues.”
The guide says:
“These five issues concern actions that are intrinsically evil and must never be promoted by the law. Intrinsically evil actions are those that fundamentally conflict with the mortal law and can never be performed under any circumstances. It is a serious sin to deliberately endorse or promote any of these actions, and no candidate who really wants to advance the common good will support any action contrary to the non-negotiable principles involved in these issues.
3) Embryonic Stem Cell Research
4) Human Cloning
5) Homosexual Marriage”
Note that capital punishment, that I have clearly advocated on my blog, on television and radio is not on the list. The guide says some issues are not non-negotiable and that includes the death penalty. Quoting Pope Benedict XVI when he was Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger:
“Not all moral issues have the same weight as abortion and euthanasia. For example, if a Catholic were to be at odds with the Holy Father on the application of capital punishment or on the decision to wage war, he would not for that reason be considered unworthy to present himself to receive Holy Communion. While the Church exhorts civil authorities to seek peace, not war, and to exercise discretion and mercy in imposing punishment on criminals, it may still be permissible to take up arms to repel an aggressor or to have recourse to capital punishment. There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia.”
Even before reading that, I had NO problem as a Catholic reconciling my opposition to abortion along with my strong support for the death penalty.
Meanwhile, you Catholics that are voting for Obama:
SHAME ON YOU!
