A Catholic Election Ad… with Fire

Catholics Called to Witness (“Inspiring Catholics to Live Their Faith”) released an extremely dramatic video about the upcoming presidential elections:

The text reads as follows (emphasis theirs, and also note that their text is all in caps lock.  I wouldn’t subject you to that, though):

In generations past, the church has always been able to count on the faithful to stand up and protect her sacred rights and duties.  This generation of Catholics must do the same.

This November

Catholics across the nation will be

Put to the test.

Many issues in America

Require hard work

But how do we know

If we are building in vain?

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.” Psalm 127:1

Catholics across the nation

Will have an opportunity

To shape the future

For our generation

Many issues are at stake.

But some issues are

Not negotiable

“The protection of life…from…conception, until natural death.” Pope Benedict XVI

Marriage should be reinforced

Not redefined

Forcing the church to buy insurance that goes against her teachings is a violation of religious freedom.

“When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental, one shudders to think what lies ahead.”  Cardinal Dolan

Your vote will affect the future

And be recorded in eternity

Will you vote the values

That stand the test of fire?

The whole text plays over a man literally forging words like “TAXES” and “ENERGY” and “MARRIAGE” all in super slow motion.  Then a woman walks to a voting booth and casts a ballot.  In super slow motion.  The sound track is something akin to The Lord of the Rings.  It is all very very dramatic.

I wonder who they are trying to get us to vote for…

So, this is what we’re up against.

Just thought I would let you know.
