Faithful Politics

Being faithful with our politics, not political with our faith.

The Loud Silence

Obama’s first Pro-life decision came in the first few days of his presidency and was greeted with silence from the “Religious Right” the group that claims as their mantle the sanctity of life. Obama signed orders to halt what Bush called enhanced interrogation techniques, but what was classified by Amnesty International and the Red Cross as torture. When these practices were reveled to occur during Bush’s presidency there was silence in response from the Christian’s that supported the republicans platform of life, and similarly when Obama banned the practice the same silence occured. I realize that the torture that occurs to prisoners in American camps are small compared to the deaths that occur from Abortion but as Bush said, ‘”I think it’s important to promote a culture of life. I think a hospitable society is a society where every being counts and every person matters.”
