According to US News, a group called Catholics for Obama has calling Catholic voters and asking them “How can you vote for a Mormon?” Talk about dirty tricks. I’m sure the media would be outraged if people attached to the Romney campaign called people and asked “How could you vote for a Muslim?”
On Wednesday Hudson also revealed that a group calling itself Catholics for Obama had been making push poll phone calls in support of the president’s re-election bid. Among the questions being asked, he said, was “How can you support a ‘Mormon’ who does not believe in Jesus Christ?”
The phone banker making the call, which in this case went to a woman Hudson identifies as “the head of a pro-life committee at a parish I know” reportedly also asserted that “President Obama did not support abortion” and that Planned Parenthood “helps children get healthcare and prenatal care and does not promote abortion.” In fact, the group is one of the nation’s largest abortion providers.
All this amounts to a whispering campaign that is both dishonest about the president’s record on abortion and deviously attempts to divide the Catholic electorate on the issue of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s religion—something the Obama campaign has repeatedly promised it would not do.
I hope these people all go to confession. The last time I checked, lying is still a sin. So is supporting abortion.
