Pro-life Civil Disobedience Planned at Obama DC Headquarters and in Colorado Springs on 9/29
Message: "Catholics may not in good conscience vote for Obama for President - in spite of all dissent to the contrary." Randall Terry, Founder, Operation Rescue

MEDIA ADVISORY, Sept. 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- " violates no aspect of Catholic teaching for a Catholic Voter to endorse, support, or vote for Barack Obama..."? Doug Kmiec, Catholic Attorney and author, Can a Catholic Support Him? (Page 36)

Statement of Randall Terry:

"The above statement is theological and morally false. Mr. Kmiec is promoting error and false teachings that are in direct contradiction to the Gospel of Life. We will do everything in our power to refute this error.

"For example, John Paul II states: 'In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to 'take part in a propaganda campaign in favour of such a law, or vote for it'. 73, Gospel of Life

"With our federal system of government, we do not vote for laws; we vote for lawmakers who make laws in our stead. Given the history and intention of Obama to continue the legalized killing of the unborn, to vote for him is to knowingly to participate in his evil acts and intentions, and to vote for abortion itself.

"We created a new brochure for Catholic Churches, entitled: Faithful Catholic Citizenship. It is a 'voter's pro- life catechism' focusing on the teachings of John Paul II. See brochure at

"For the next 5 weeks, we will focus on the Catholic Community with a simple message: No Catholic may in good conscience vote for Obama, because of his support for Roe vs. Wade. We will hand out Faithful Catholic Citizenship at Cathedrals and Parishes, hold protests, and practice peaceful civil disobedience,: We begin in DC and Colorado Springs."
