“When we open our hearts and our minds to those who may not think precisely like we do or believe precisely what we believe—that’s when we discover at least the possibility of common ground,” Obama said.
So what? Why is "common ground" something to be sought after? Why is it a good?
Should we seek "common ground" with those who want to destroy Israel? How about those in authority who did nothing even after being informed of priests abusing children? Should we seek "common ground" with terrorists? This is typical empty Obama rhetoric. Sounds kind of good until you stop to think about what it means.
Obama happily declared that we could agree on some things: That abortion is a gut-wrenching decision for a woman, and that we all want to reduce the number of abortions.
When was there EVER disagreement on these two items???
And when the discussion is about what is the truth about the dignity of the human person why is finding areas of agreement a goal?
It is speaking the truth that is necessary, not finding agreement.
Speaking the truth!!!!
I saw Obama receive his honorary law degree and I was brought to tears for the pain inflicted on Our Blessed Mother.
Lord have mercy!
