Guest Opinion: A New Campaign Low. Presidential Character and the Lena Dunham Advertisement Comments

A man's character is the sum of his actions over time, so you intrinsically know a person of good character when you encounter one. Who could have had any doubt about Bl. Mother Theresa's character?

    Legal abortion in America does not mean it is mandatory! Religion can teach people why abortion is WRONG. Why do you insist on trying to legislate morality by focussing on one or two instances and totally ignoring all the legislation that actually harms God's people... continuous war, our healthcare system, unlimited poverty, and profit at the expense of human beings?

    It is sad that this USA's moral code for life and marriage has been torn apart by the Obama administration. Someone said "a Christian could never vote for Obama." I am praying that is true and Obama will soon be out of office. I am hoping that a strong message against voting for Obama is being preached from every pulpit. Maybe our priests, rabbis, ministers, pastors, etc. can turn this country back to its Christian/Jewish values.

    Here is a vote from a Protestant reader who fully agrees with this opinion. I wanted to puke when I read about the political ad. And to think it received official approval of a political party and presidential campaign. How far have we fallen where that is considered acceptable presidential campaign material!
