Off My Chest….

Barack Obama represents American Catholics better than the Pope does

– Kathleen Kennedy-Townsend

The above quote is from a feature article she wrote for Time.

As I sit here reading and enjoying my Labor day this quote jumped off the page of the latest issue of “Town Hall” magazine, a conservative political magazine. I have already read “Our Sunday Visitor” and “The Michigan Catholic” and just started in on “Town Hall”. The quote is a a page called The Word, just a few pages that include tid-bits and quotes from people over the last month of so.

Man what a scary thought, that anyone would say that Obama was more Catholic than the Pope, or that he [Obama] represents Catholics more. As a Catholic I am insulted! Not that it really matters what I [a white, male Catholic] think. My opinions don’t matter to the secular world, and to tell the truth it really don’t matter in the Catholic world also. I am. for all statistical purposes a non-entity, but that is for another blog.

What offends me is the audacity of Mrs. Kennedy-Towsend, for her to presume that a pro-abortion, socialistic president who is not even Catholic represents my faith. If truth be told, Mr. Obama is anti-Catholic, anti-life and anti-American. And Mrs. Kennedy-Towsend may have misspoken, maybe she meant to say that Mr. Obama represented her form of the Catholic Faith better than the Pope. Maybe that’s it…. That would make since, because the Kennedy’s are pro-choice (pro-killing babies). As we know Mr. Obama not only believes this but is also trying to make it the norm and forcing it upon all.

It sickens me and makes me very angry that people like her can get “coverage” to state her sick form of the Catholic Faith, yet you will be hard pressed to find a true Catholics writings in Time or any other national magazine or paper. It is almost as if they are scared to print the truth. Maybe that’s it, maybe they feel that is the truth of the faith is printed than they, the press and elite will seen as they are, for what they are and what they stand for.


(Just wanted to get this off my chest, maybe I will explore it more sometime this week or so)

About Paul Sposite

Paul Sposite - Life Coach I began my career as an instructor. As an instructor there are two basic requirements. You have to know yourself, so you know where you’re drawing your inspiration from. And you have to actively listen to the others, and then respond to the subtext of what they are saying. In learning about myself I started to focus a lot on my students, how they learned, what questions they were asking and how I could best modify my methods to best serve them. I believe that if you use your real life problems/issues as insights to the issues you need to heal, you’ll grow. From my experience in the classroom, creating curriculum and material to support my training, I developed an interest in how people process information. This interest turned into my interest in Life Coaching.
