Seeking the truth

To the editor:

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Fr. Siebenaler, for doing just what Michelle Obama requested in your sermon last Sunday by suggesting how we vote!

This past summer, Mrs. Obama told the congregation at the African Methodist Episcopal Church in Nashville, Tennessee, "And to anyone who says that church is no place to talk about these (political) issues, you tell them there is no better place - no better place. Because ultimately, these are not just political issues-they are moral issues." You were only following the First Lady's advice - and apparently she is calling on Americans to be unrestrained by separation of church and state. She claims it's OK to merge religion and politics. Kudos, Fr. Siebenaler.

Also, since Ken K. likes to use statistics, I would like to clarify something important. The number of practicing Catholics (i.e. those who faithfully adhere to the teachings of the Church) who support Mr. Obama is ZERO percent. The doctrine of the Catholic Church stands for the defense of the culture of life - the Truth is non-negotiable. The Catholic population in this country known as CINOs (Catholics In Name Only) do tend to vote for Obama - hence the skewed statistics concerning the Catholic vote.

Nonetheless, it is good to see you attending Mass, Ken, and paying attention! You must be seeking the Truth. I've always believed as St. Augustine once said, "No one denies God unless he has some reason for wanting him not to exist."
