RUSH: Terri in Charlotte, North Carolina, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. I’m so happy and nervous to talk to you.
RUSH: Don’t be nervous. Don’t be nervous.
CALLER: I have a question for you. I know you’re not a spiritual advisor, but perhaps you can help me out. When I found out that the majority of Catholics voted for Obama I’ve had trouble as a Catholic attending church without some animosity toward my fellow parishioners. And I was wondering if you had any advice as to, you know…
RUSH: Yeah, I do.
RUSH: I’m not a spiritual advisor, nor am I a spiritual counselor, but you can’t control what they do anyway and as such you should not let anything they do make you feel, I mean, it’s going to make you feel sad or unhappy but it shouldn’t ruin your day. It’s their life that they’re toying with, not yours. They haven’t messed with your values. They didn’t. I don’t know if the word’s corrupt —
RUSH: — your beliefs and so forth, but, if anything, after you get mad at ’em, you might want to spend some time feeling a little sympathy for them because it’s inexplicable to people who are fervent believers in the sanctity of life —
RUSH: — and are members of a religion that is unbending on that, to sit around and vote for somebody who’s not just pro-choice. This is a man who voted three times for legislation to allow babies born alive in botched abortions not to be saved because the mother’s original intent was to abort the child. I mean, that’s infanticide.
RUSH: You know what? I’d give them the benefit of the doubt, based on what we have learned from polling data. A lot of Obama voters simply didn’t know anything about what he stood for, and I would bet you a bunch of the Catholics that voted for him don’t even know what his pro-abortion position is, because he wasn’t asked constantly. Abortion was barely mentioned in debates. I bet a lot of people didn’t know about it, Terri.
