If there were every a prominent pro-life Democrat, maybe we would see. None of the current candidates are.


Harry Reid is anti-choice.

It would be interesing to see. There probably are many pro-life Democrats that are afraid to say so because of their politics. It's likely the same with some Republicans being strongly pro-choice, but not saying so because of politics.

Flashback: Robertson Agreed That America "Deserved" 9/11
By Greg Sargent - November 7, 2007, 11:00AM

In light of Pat Robertson's endorsement today of former NYC Mayor and Churchillian 9/11 hero Rudy Giuliani, it seems worth recalling that even as the smoke was still rising from the site a few days later, Robertson had this to say about the disaster in a TV appearance with Jerry Falwell:

"God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve," said Falwell, appearing yesterday on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club," hosted by Robertson.

"Jerry, that's my feeling," Robertson responded. "I think we've just seen the antechamber to terror. We haven't even begun to see what they can do to the major population."

Falwell said the American Civil Liberties Union has "got to take a lot of blame for this," again winning Robertson's agreement: "Well, yes."


Subsequent to that, Falwell placed some of the blame for 9/11 squarely on a range of Americans -- civil liberties groups, feminists, homosexuals, abortion rights supporters -- who have tried to "secularize" America. Robertson didn't disagree. Today Rudy gladly accepted his endorsement.
How does one even respond to this kind of hate and ignorance? It just is incredibly upsetting that some people might see this and think that it's a represntation Jesus and those who are trying to follow Him.

Power trips, 9-11, can be a bitch, 9-11, 9-11.

ABC News' David Wright and Sunlen Miller Report: At a town hall meeting Wednesday an Iowa voter asked Senator Barack Obama, D-Ill., about the numerous emails she has received with photos purporting to show Obama "refusing" to pledge allegiance to the flag.

"You're standing with your arms folded and Hillary's got her hand on her heart," she said, adding that she received so many of these emails she is sick of them.

Obama shook his head and smiled.

"This was not during the pledge of allegiance," Obama said of the picture taken at Senator Tom Harkin's, D-Iowa, annual steak fry and first published by Time. "A woman was singing the Star Spangled Banner when that picture was taken.

"I was taught by my grandfather that you put your hand over your heart during the pledge, but during the Star Spangled Banner, you sing!" Obama said.


Obama called the circulation of such pictures a "dirty trick" and mentioned other emails accusing him of being "a Muslim plant."

"I have been pledging allegiance since I was a kid," Obama said.

Obama advised his supporters who receive such emails to ignore them.

"Just tell whoever sent it," Obama told the crowd, "they're misinformed."

It's good to hear that you have no more important things to worry about.

Well I wouldn't exactly put Rudy in the pro-choice category, he's catered everything else to the right, who knows he may have promised Robertson he'd change this as well. He changed his stance on gay marriage... we'll see.

Are any of them singing?

I put my hand over my heart during the anthem, it's just something I like to do. If others don't wish to do that that's their choice. He is still acknowledging it-you'd think he was sitting or had his back turned.

But for anyone to try to use that against him or even make that an issue is just pathetic. That man is unquestionably patriotic in every sense of what that word really means. If putting a hand over a heart is a test of patriotism I think our concerns are screwy and misplaced. There could be plenty of people placing a hand over a heart who have done some very unpatriotic things otherwise. And there are.
