In a shocking move that is sure to upset Christians in Bath Count and throughout Virginia, Democrat candidate Creigh Deeds has leveled attacks at Republican Bob McDonnell for his Catholic beliefs. Contraception is condemned in the Bible. The Catholic Church stands firmly against it’s use. In case you wish to see a list of scriptures that support this, visit this website.
Is it fair, in the heat of a campaign, to attack the religious beliefs of a candidate? Has Creigh Deeds fallen so hopelessly behind that his campaign and Governor Tim Kaine’s DNC machine feel that one’s faith is fair game?
This country was founded on religious tolerance. We are brought up to respect each other’s faith and beliefs.
Are the campaigns now going to dig into Sunday School writings of Deeds? Is this relevant to Virginia when we are in the depths of the longest recession since the Great Depression? And what is the matter with the Washington Post? This is a new low even for them.
Over the last couple of decades since the thesis was written, attitudes in the Catholic Church have changed, even if the Vatican has not. Some estimates say as many as 96% of Catholics have used some form of birth control.
Whatever Bob McDonnell’s beliefs are concerning contraception at this time, I am sure I don’t have a clue, or a concern. Regardless of how you feel on the subject, I really don’t see condoms and “the pill” being made illegal by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Does anyone even believe that is something Bob McDonnell could do if he wanted to? Just how much power does the DNC and Deeds think the office of Governor has in the Commonwealth?
This is a totally bogus smoke screen designed to take the focus off of Deed’s lack of relevance in this race. Nothing more.
