WASHINGTON, July 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- Senator Obama has no moral authority to speak on faith and social justice while promoting a radical pro abortion position which brutalizes children and diminishes women.
If elected President, Senator Obama would be the most pro-abortion President in America history.
The Christian Defense Coalition calls for Senator Obama to embrace a Christian faith which supports and affirms justice and human rights and works to end the tragic violence and suffering of abortion.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, "In today's speech, Senator Obama will affirm the importance of faith, values and social justice. Sadly, Senator Obama does not have the moral authority to address these issues while supporting the tragic killing of innocent children and diminishing of women through abortion.
"The question must be asked, how can one support faith and values while embracing policies that brutalize children and wound women? Senator Obama cannot talk with integrity about his faith and social justice anymore than a segregationist or racist can talk about their faith, justice or equality with integrity.
"Throughout the Gospels, Christ taught us to stand for the most defenselessness, needy and broken in our society. Senator Obama betrays those sacred principles through his radical pro-abortion position."
Katilin Clare, Program Director for the Christian Defense Coalition, adds,
"As a 23 year old emerging generation faith leader it is easy to see through Sen. Obama's attempt to reach the faith community. It seems completely illogical that one person can talk about faith and values while simultaneously supporting the brutal killing of children through abortion. Sen. Obama has no moral authority to speak about faith and social justice; it's like a hunter speaking at a PETA meeting."
