Last night in the debate Senator Kerry made his faith look like it was a fictional journey. If you don’t believe me……here’s a bit of the transcript from his side last night:
“I respect their views. I completely respect their views. I am a Catholic. And I grew up learning how to respect those views. But I disagree with them, as do many……..I believe that choice is a woman’s choice. It’s between a woman, God and her doctor. And that’s why I support that.”
How can you say that you grew up Catholic (who definitely oppose abortion) and expect the fact that you were even an altar boy to make such an impression on the voters of America when your exact words show that the faith you found so important is not even as important as politics are?
Another mistake Kerry made last night was when he tried to use a verse out of the Bible. Here is what he tried to bring across with it:
“My faith affects everything that I do, in truth. There’s a great passage of the Bible that says, “What does it mean, my brother, to say you have faith if there are no deeds? Faith without works is dead.”
It’s very obvious to me that he is saying that works come before his faith. He is saying that he has the works and his faith then comes into the picture……contrary to President Bush who focuses each day by beginning and ending it with prayer. From the first mistake listed above………I’m guessing John Kerry’s works are dead because his faith doesn’t have much substance? How can you have so many people (top leaders) of your faith denouncing your decision and try to still persuade the voters that your faith is very important to you? Faith isn’t something that you give up once it comes election time. I’m guessing that if Mr. Kerry he will be wanting to switch his life back to a faith-first focus after his term is up?
