According to the exit polls, President-Elect Obama built a winning coalition of religious voters of all persuasions, significantly closing the gap which traditionally shows frequent-worshippers leaning towards the Republicans.

Despite the abortion furore and his avowed liberalism, he won over a majority of Jews and Roman Catholics, made significant inroads into the younger Evangelicals, and persuaded vast numbers of the minor religious groups to buy into his vision.
One Jewish leader, former Clinton White House Counsel even went so far as to call Barack Obama a “yiddishe neshuma” to describe him. It essentially means a Jewish soul. It’s an expression my mother used. It means a sensitive, sympathetic personality, someone who understands where you are coming from.” So much for Moses and the Ten Commandments! And to quote Tora Aish, “How can we be redeemed? We have no good deeds to our credit. What is going to be with us?”

The Democrats usually do well with the Jewish vote, and this election was no different. President-Elect Obama won about 77 per cent, which was an increase on the 2004 election, when Democratic candidate John Kerry received 74 per cent of the Jewish vote.

Nationwide, 54 percent of Catholics supported Obama and 44 percent voted for McCain. Of the total population, 52 percent voted for Obama and 46 percent for McCain.

THIS IS THE STATISTICAL REPORT FROM THE CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE. And if it is true there are 54% of the Catholics in the USA that ignored one of the basic tenets of the Catholic church. You should not kill! And my belief is that not enough Parish priests and Bishops stressed the fact that voting for a man who is 100% for abortion and partial birth abortion is tantamount to consenting to the sin of abortion!
A number( unfortunately not all)of US Catholic bishops emphasised abortion as a paramount voting issue this year, but the economy and/or the Iraq war appears to have been a primary cause for the voting shift.
Bishop Joseph F. Martino of the Scranton Diocese issued a letter, which he required pastors to read to their parishioners, warning that “being ‘right’ on taxes, education, health care, immigration and the economy fails to make up for the error of disregarding the value of a human life.” Martino continued: “It is a tragic irony that ‘pro-choice’ candidates have come to support homicide – the gravest injustice a society can tolerate – in the name of ‘social justice.”

The Catholic Church lists nine ways that a Catholic may be complicit in the commission of a Mortal Sin. 5. If the person had full knowledge of the severity of the sin;
1. If the person voluntarily consented to the sin;
2. If the person assisted others to sin;
3. If the person by advised someone to sin;
4. If the person commanded someone to sin;
5. If the person provoked someone to sin;
6. If the person consented to some one’s sin;
7. If the person showed someone how to sin;
8. If the person praised someone for his sin;
9. If the person concealed, remained silent or did nothing to prevent some one’s sin

It is number nine that I am afraid most of the 54% percent of Catholics that voted for a man(OBAMA) who not only voted repeatedly for abortion rights, but voted against a Bill that would have given the right to life for a baby born despite a failed abortion. Semantics call it “partial-birth abortion”. This is murder pure and simple,Ipso facto!! And do not compare abortion to the death penalty. In abortion you are terminating the life of an innocent person. Not so in the death penalty!

Perhaps this explains the results of a study done by Believenet that showed that Catholics(as well as other Christians) are actually no more guilt-ridden than anyone else. In my opinion it is a sign that Christians and Jews, as a whole, and Catholics in specific have killed their conscience by being politically correct. And even the former Communist Russian paper Pravda hailed the turn away from religious principles in their congratulation message about Obama’s election.
This from the Rocky Mountain Express; “Russian newspaper Pravada praised Obama, and said ” … in choosing Obama, the people of America have opted to come back into the international fold. Welcome back, friends!” I am not sure the secular world is where we want to be!

Apparently 54% of the Catholics were CINO’s( catholics in name only)in the majority of the States in the USA. “Cradle” Catholics, who go to church on Sunday, but leave their beliefs in the church when the service is over!

What is interesting is the vote of the religious group that is dedicated to replacing all religions but theirs, in time.
It is reported that 89 per cent of US Muslims voted for Barack Obama, as against 2 per cent for John McCain. 95 per cent of Muslims are reported to have voted in this presidential election, either at the polls or by absentee ballot. This is the highest ever American Muslim voter turnout.
And as a group, black Protestants, 94 per cent voted for Obama, along with 72 per cent of Hispanic Catholics and 67 per cent of Hispanic Protestants.

All this indicates to me that religious leaders have failed to get the message that the Ten Commandments are the basis for religious belief, and Americans put their religious beliefs second behind personal gain, and voted for a slick talking man with a bag full of promises!
