***VA teachers union working for Obama
***And then there’s the history teacher at Bishop O’Connell H.S. in Arlington. Dr. Joseph LeBlanc basically told kids to register and vote for Obama on the front page of the school paper. Dr. LeBlanc is known at O’Connell for his anti-Bush, pro-democratic classroom rants so his not-so-coded message was obvious. “First,” he said, this is “a watershed election… in which the direction of the country might be changed by the outcome.” [Ah change…we all know who the change candidate is.] “Second…by the time you reach my age, will the atmosphere contain so much carbon that life as you know it is impossible?” [Hey kids, are you wearing your “Obama will save the planet” t-shirts?] “Third, as voters, you are more idealistic than the older voterswho helped create this awful mess by their cynical attitude of ‘all politicians are the same – phonies.’” [Whoa! Les Femmes’ moms and grandmas didn’t cause this mess! We vote with informed consciences and work for candidates who defend the non-negotiable life issues. Ever hear of those, Dr. LeBlanc? Why weren’t they included in your article?] And finally, “Keep your ideals and your hopes, as you keep your religious faith, and vote with those hopes.” [Well, we all know who the “hope” candidate is. He’s told us so over and over ad nauseum.] The fact that electing Obama will dash the hopes of unborn babies is apparently not important to Dr. LeBlanc. The day after the inauguration Obama will undo advances pro-lifers have struggled to gain over the past 35 years. He will sign the Freedom of Choice Act as he promised Planned Parenthood which will entrench Roe v. Wade and overturn most state laws protecting the unborn. He will select radical Supreme Court judges and name pro-abortion and pro-gay liberals to all levels of the federal court system. No hope with Obama for the unborn. His political career proves him to be cynical, manipulative, and a liar. Put your hope in the Lord not the fake messiah!
***Nurses can now murder patients in CA
***Padres become community organizers: The Alinskian Industrial Areas Foundation is expanding its tentacles into the Diocese of Arlington with the help of St. Anthony’s Fr. Tuck Grinnell, a founder of VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement) which brought together 40 religious groups in October 5th to [what else?] organize. Fr. Gerry Creedon from St. Charles and Fr. Bob Cilinski at All Saints are also part of the group. Interestingly the VOICE webpage is hosted by the United Universalist Church of Arlington (UUCA) which works for gay rights, abortion, and euthanasia. In fact their gay lobby day supported a bill to prohibit parental input on school clubs their kids join. [Hey, they might object to gays soliciting their children.] CCHD history illustrates how linking arms with IAF results in organized promotion (and funding) of abortion, gay rights, and other pet issues of the extreme left. IAF follows the same evil strategies as ACORN does.One of VOICE’s demands is for $20 million in “affordable housing” in Prince William County, an area with hundreds of surplus houses due to foreclosures caused by bad loans. And the threats have already begun. The Washington Post quoted Fr. Tuck saying, “From the elected officials’ side they’re going to see the birth of an interfaith organization as a huge ally for them if they do the right thing or a huge obstacle if they do the wrong thing.” And what exactly is the right thing? In their Oct. 5th bulletin All Saints listed a panoply of issues: “1. the expansion and addition of Affordable housing Trust Funds in Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria and Prince William County. 2. The setting aside and identification of public lands for low-income Housing. 3. Decreasing the long lead time for processing applications for citizenship. 4. Increasing public funding for English as a Second Language instruction. 5. Expansion of the capacity and coverage area of the free Northern Dental Clinic 6. Developing recommendations for improving access to emergency health care for mental patients. This set of programs is just a start.” [That’s what we’re afraid of. Don’t hold your breath waiting for VOICE to defend the unborn or traditional marriage. Abortion and marital breakup are devastating to the poor, but they don’t even make a blip on these “social justice” junkies’ radar screens. Neither does the Church principle of subsidiarity which calls for solving problems at the lowest level beginning with the family. VOICE and groups like it are all about getting money from Uncle Sugar Daddy and gaining power. Networking with gay and pro-abort bedfellows allows the culture of death to further its agenda under the guise of respectability. It’s nothing new and the proof is all over if you research IAF, ACORN, Gamaliel, etc. The success of these groups at picking the taxpayers’ pockets means less money for you to give to charity and to support your families. VOICE will decide for you. Watch for VOICE to shill for big-government liberal democrats. These three priests are known for that. How many more will be sucked in by their IAF VOICE?]
