Smart choice by the Obama campaing.... Good to see a Roman Catholic back in the white house. I am not very familiar with his views but i will sure study him later on this evening and comment on it.

Other than being a white guy and served in washington for over 30 years, Biden was picked for his Foreign Relations experience. I am sure the fact that he is roman catholic was also taken into consideration as that might silent critics who belive that Obama is far too liberal. still i believe that clinton shoul have been number two. This might just cost the Dems the elections, a black guy and a catholic.. america is not ready for that although the world is and it's praying for it to happen....

As the campaign slogan states time for "Change, Hope and History"

Obama/Biden 08

“Obama trumpets "change," but with the choice of Joe Biden for VP, the campaign is clearly stating that too much change too fast is no way to win an election. The 65-year-old Biden is the very definition (OF NO CHANGE) a Washington insider, a white-haired (no offence to white hair) white guy who's been in Congress since 1972, when Obama was in grade school. (In fact Biden has served ten years longer than John McCain.)’
Is this the slogan of change? And hope for what. for a better future, it will be the same , like Carter’s Iran and more ,Clinton’s Bosnia and more, left U.S.A with all the world trouble to deal with. Obama and Biden (if they make it there) will be no different than any other Democrats in the white house, each one is worse than the other.

One question to ask AJ is, why are you always on the opposition ticket? Judging by your voting tips recently: ALP for Australia, Democrats for USA, and FPM for Lebanon..... one thing is clear, they were/or still are opposition tickets for elections. FPM is a right wing party, ALP is left wing.. Democrats are centre-left... There's no connection at all apart from them being opposition parties.

What if the FPM were to win the next elections, would you then become a, God forbid... LF supporter?

Also, in a year or two's time at the next Australian election, would you be voting Liberals?

What's the story here... please explain.

Biden maybe marketing his catholicm but hes pro-abortion.

You cant build and run a society if you cant defend the meek and helpless.

America has such an ugly death culture.
Tfeh.

Dude you can be catholic and still be pro choice. God gave us free will. I know you might quote the comandments and say they shall not kill....

But i am telling you in due time the church will take a more moderate position reagrding this issue. It has done so on many others and will like wise do so on this... perhaps not in the immediate future akeed not with Pope Benedict, but it will happen. Just as the times are changing so too is church doctrine.

Me personally i dont promote it and neither do i encourage it. But if shit happens people are free to make what ever decision they want.

If you want to debate this i am ready.

This problem is not a American problem although i do to an extent agree with you regarding its "death culture" it's a universal problem and legal in many countries.

The Church changes but it does not do 180 degree turns in the opposite direction, it changes its expression to understand a concept in greater depth.

There are certain things that are not-negotiable. This is one of them. People must understand the abortion debate can never be won by pro-choicers because, philosophically speaking, women are not just singular when they are pregnant. If you make a choice to do something, you can go and do it, so long as you are not affecting anybody else. But carrying a baby inside of you means one extra point to think about:

You cannot decide for the baby what its future is. There is injustice in that the child does not get a say in the abortion. It never has, and never will in the future. If you want to abort, then next time you have sex, have a think about what you're really doing.

You cannot just cross the line and then go back "because you're not ready for motherhood". Once a woman falls pregnant, she loses all sense of choice, and in no way possible should a pregnant woman feel that she has any right (biologically) to decide on anything that will directly affect the life of the unborn child.

Whether you consider an unborn child an object without rights, is something to do with the country's laws, but at the end of the day, biologically, the woman, if she were to have freedom of choice, should be free to do what she likes FOR HER SELF, not to decide for others.

Therefore the freedom of choice given by God should be confined only to oneself and not others around them.
