CFA Executive Director: “As we look for Senate candidates who can benefit most from our resources and organization, we know that Christine O’Donnell will lead the fight in reclaiming our republic from the tidal wave of liberal tyranny during the last two years.”
WASHINGTON, Christian Newswire — One week after announcing its slate of endorsements for the 2010 midterm elections, Catholic Families for America [www.catholicfamiliesusa.org] is rolling out its list of “priority seats,” or states and districts where it will concentrate its resources this fall. The first in this list is the U.S. Senate seat in Delaware, where Christine O’Donnell is vying for the Republican nomination.
“In Christine O’Donnell, voters in Delaware have a bona fide pro-family, pro-life, small government conservative,” stated Dr. Kevin Roberts, executive director for CFA. “As we look for Senate candidates who can benefit most from our resources and organization, we know that Christine O’Donnell will lead the fight in reclaiming our republic from the tidal wave of liberal tyranny during the last two years.”
Roberts also mentioned that his group was particularly motivated to assist O’Donnell because her opponent for the Republican nomination, Congressman Mike Castle, is notorious for his political stances that violate the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, in spite of self-identifying as a Catholic.
“Aside from Nancy Pelosi, it’s hard to find a more treacherous display of using one’s faith when it’s helpful politically but discarding it when it’s ‘inconvenient,'” Roberts said. “Mike Castle could not even support restricting the transport of minors across state lines to obtain an abortion, could not find the spine to support a ban on the federal funding of so-called ‘family planning’ abroad, and yet has been able to support human cloning.” Roberts also mentioned that Castle supports same-sex marriage.
“But in addition to life issues, Castle is also dead-wrong on other matters. He’s already voted for cap-and-trade, and may very well do so again. He’s been a consistent opponent of education reform. He’s also been absurdly anti-family on tax policies. In short, Castle is a poster child for the ‘cafeteria Catholicism’ that plagues Washington,” Roberts concluded.
O’Donnell, on the other hand, fits perfectly with CFA’s key policy objectives, which include preservation of the sanctity of life, pro-family tax policies, traditional marriage, and education reform. Moreover, O’Donnell’s record as a “movement conservative” and expert communicator will make her an effective national voice for conservative causes.
Catholic Families for America is building state and local chapters across the country, to better facilitate what it calls its Catholic-Get-Out-The-Vote (CGOTV) efforts. CFA has offices in Austin, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
The Delaware primary election is September 14, 2010.
