Obama calls target Catholics with lies
Warning: Prepare for Catholics for Obama Phone Calls
by Deal Hudson | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 9/26/12 11:12 AMThe head of a pro-life committee at a parish I know just received a call from the Obama campaign. The caller asked for her daughter by name, and when she was not there then asked where she could be contacted. Her mother responded by telling the Obama supporter, "not to waste her time as my daughter is supporting the pro-life candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan."
When the caller hesitated and acted surprised, the mother, a staunch pro-life Catholic, said:
"My daughter is a practicing Catholic and would never cast a vote for a pro-abortion, pro-same sex marriage, pro-embryonic stem cell research, pro-euthanasia candidate who supported the HHS mandate that will take away religious freedoms from Catholic hospitals, Catholic charities, and Catholic institutions."
The Obama supporter then launched into her "canned response" and started reading from her call script: "Well, I am a practicing Catholic, and I strongly support President Obama." The mother then asked her if she was "familiar with the Pope's five "non-negotiable's."' The Obama supporter had no idea what she was talking about and explained that it was only the Pope's "opinion" to ban the use of contraception.
The Obama caller then went back to her script, asking these clever questions:
1. How can you support a "Mormon" who does not believe in Jesus Christ?
2. What to you think about the "Nuns on the Bus" who support Obama?
The mother replied, "How can you support a man who supports the killing of innocent pre-born children for all nine months?"
Then, she added, "How can you support a president who denigrates the Sacrament of Marriage by supporting same sex marriage which is against the teaching of the Church?"
The Catholic mother then concluded with, "How can you as a Catholic support a president who supports partial birth abortion and did not support the Born Alive Protection Act when he was a state senator in Illinois?"
Now, get this! The Obama supporter, again reading from her call script, countered, "President Obama did not support abortion."

I didn't fact check that because it was a first-person account told to the reporter. It also souded completely believable as they have used similar tactics in the past. However, US News is carrying the story today, which I posted earlier this evening.
