Sizing Up The Presidential Candidates (Part 1)

You are probably going to disagree with some of the views presented here. What I am going to do is identify an issue, present to you the Catholic voters guide to voting view on the issue, and then I will give each candidate a percentage. The percentage will indicate how close a candidate's view is to the views presented in the guide. I think that all Catholics should use this invaluable guide in helping them vote in 2008. We make up 30% of the nation's voters!

Abortion
- Abortion is the dominant political issue.
- Being pro-abortion disqualifies a candidate from a Catholic vote.
- Catholics can justly support politicians who advocate incremental means toward eliminating abortion.
- All instances of abortion are morally wrong.

  1. Joe Biden - Democrat - 33% - Disqualified
  2. Hilary Clinton - Democrat - 50% - Disqualified
  3. Chris Dodd - Democrat - 0% - Disqualified
  4. John Edwards - Democrat - 0% - Disqualified
  5. Mike Gravel - Democrat - 0% - Disqualified
  6. Dennis Kucinich - Democrat - 0% - Disqualified
  7. Barack Obama - Democrat - 0% - Disqualified
  8. Bill Richardson - Democrat - 0% - Disqualified
  9. Rudy Guiliani - Republican - 44% - Disqualified
  10. Mike Huckabee - Republican - 90%
  11. Duncan Hunter - Republican - 100%
  12. John McCain - Republican - 100%
  13. Ron Paul - Republican - 90%
  14. Mitt Romney - Republican - 66% - Disqualified
  15. Fred Thompson - Republican - 85%
  16. Alan Keyes - Republican - 100%
  17. William Koenig - Republican - 100%
  18. Don Grundmann - Constitution Party - 100%
  19. Jared Ball - Green Party - 0% - Disqualified

  1. NO ONE GIVES A RATS ASS ABOUT ABORTION. THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS NOT A FACTOR IN IT. DROP THE GOD DAMN TOPIC.

  3. I can't get impregnated, so abortion doesn't really concern me.

  4. Murder is necessary in some cases. Just let people do what they want to do. I don't think I'd ever be able to abort a baby, but that doesn't mean some other people would. Let them make their own choice, when you start limiting them then you are just being a completely jerko.

  5. Glen, technically you've gone against the Bible murder thing numerous times. ie...well.. "spilling your seed upon the earth".

  6. Sorry, not murder, but you do go against the Bible sometimes, so you appear a tad selective.
