Obama Campaign Uses Bigotry In A Push Poll


In an ever growing sign that panic and flopsweat are setting in, the Obama campaign has been nailed using religious bigotry in a Ohio push poll.

As reported in US News & World Report, the left wing and oxymoronic group “Catholics for Obama” was caught in the act of using Mitt Romney’s religion as a cudgel:

On Wednesday Hudson also revealed that a group calling itself Catholics for Obama had been making push poll phone calls in support of the president’s re-election bid. Among the questions being asked, he said, was “How can you support a ‘Mormon’ who does not believe in Jesus Christ?”

The phone banker making the call, which in this case went to a woman [Deal Hudson, the president of the Pennsylvania Catholics Network] identifies as “the head of a pro-life committee at a parish I know” reportedly also asserted that “President Obama did not support abortion” and that Planned Parenthood “helps children get healthcare and prenatal care and does not promote abortion.” In fact, the group is one of the nation’s largest abortion providers.

One has gotten use to these Catholycs, lying about Church doctrine in order to give cover to a morally noxious regime. That they would use a push poll based on religious bigotry exceeds even the very low standards they have set for themselves. Regardless of one’s theology or lack of it, this should be considered wrong by everyone.
