GOP congresswoman betrays her gender

Palm Springs’ Mary Bono Mack votes against sex selection ban


The following email came on June 22 from the Susan B. Anthony List.

Below is an urgent message and action alert from myself and my friends Dr. Charmaine Yoest of Americans United for Life and Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America. Please read it and take immediate action to contact California Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack!

As you may know, at the very end of May, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 246-168 in favor of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act to ban sex-selection abortions.

Sex selection abortions are happening right here in the United States. Studying sex-ratios, researchers at Columbia University, the University of Texas and elsewhere have found evidence that, within certain communities, baby girls are being aborted solely because of their sex.

Worldwide, an estimated 163 million baby girls have been aborted solely because of their gender.

While 246 Members of Congress voted to end this lethal discrimination against unborn baby girls in the womb, I am disappointed to tell you that Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack of California was not one of them.

And she needs to hear from you right now.

Click here to take action:

Ask Congresswoman Bono Mack why she chose to stand with the abortion lobby rather than defend women from the lethal discrimination of sex-selection abortion.

Mary Bono Mack has always been pro-abortion. Her husband Rep Connie Mack was a good Represetative until he married her. So he purposely did not show up for the vote. He is running for office again in FL. Unfortunately, people will not have a good candidate but have to vote for the lessor of the evil candidates.

Why are you betraying the unborn, in this case unborn baby girls? You are a disgrace to God and country Mary Bono Mack. I feel sorry for you that you have no heart for life! I will pray for you...... You have such a beautiful smile, and you are denying future unborn children the priviledge of having a beautiful smile like yours....How can you sleep at night?

Mary Bono Mack has betrayed her name, her constituents, and her country, proving yet again that she is not worthy of the great many blessings and fortunate accidents of fate that have come her way unearned, including being born a woman, and including being born in America, rather than aborted, by another woman.

Another benefit that Mary Bono Mack was able to take advantage of is that she was the widow of Sonny Bono (he of Sonny and Cher). Sonny was a pro-life legislator. Perhaps Mary was considered pro-life also. The voters were fooled.

The Palm Springs area has been overrun by the homosexual libertines. Only way she can get the votes is to cater to them, even though she always runs unopposed at election times.

Mary Bono Mack has a very sad image about herself. She is female and dislikes her own gender. She hates the gift God has given her which is womanhood. She definitely needs tons of prayers.

Mary Bono has been a flakey politician her entire life and this decision does not surprise me at all. She voted for cap and trade and jumps on the bandwagon for nearly every liberal and radical cause. She keeps winning because most of her constituents don't pay attention to what she does. I hope a conservative in the Desert Communities steps up and runs against her. This is one vote she cannot defend. Besides all of this, she is not very bright.

Palm Springs?????????????? Isn't that the desert rich community of the HOLLYWOOD TRASH? I bet O'bama collects plenty of campaign money there!

Is there no end to the avalanche of evil assaulting us in this beautiful country? And it's being perpetrated by people like this Mary Bono Mack, full of unhinged ideas like gender selection abortion (murder), seemingly so untroubled by what they assiduously advocate for, not having ANY QUALMS for the consequences of what they so keenly flack for. At times it seems that the famous triple assertion of St Augustine, the existence throughout time of the WORLD, THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL have fused into ONE MONSTROUS ENTITY, all three headed by LUCIFER himself. Does this seem a bit OVER THE TOP for most of you? I know we're encouraged to be positive in our spiritual life and know that GOD sees all the many things happening in our world, and not ALL are evil things. We're told that "be not overcome by evil but overcome evil with good," and I do believe it. And yet........ I read a statistic the other day about the 35,000,000 abortion murders committed in Communist China last year the other day, probably MOST of them forced by the government,and many gender-selective, and I wonder, is this what the Obama administration has planned for the U.S.? Would any knowledgable person put it past him and his minions in government? So does it seem somewhat plausible that the fusion I just mentioned, THE WORLD, FLESH AND DEVIL, may be taking place before our eyes, and we just don't get it? (at least not yet). Mother Mary, co-redemptrix of the human race, PRAY FOR US THAT WE BE DELIVERED FROM THE EVIL DAY that sometimes seems just around the corner. GOD BLESS ALL, MARKRITE

Sony Bono was not 100% pro-life, but he was a heck of a lot better than this woman! I always shudder when the idiot voters elect a widow or widower of a politician. God bless, yours in Their Hearts, Kenneth M. Fisher

Mack attack ... on decency. Vote her out.

It is hard to believe that some women are so stupid and ungrateful to their maker that they were even allowed to be born. They would deny another woman their right to life. She sells our for a title and money. In the end she will not get what she bargained for, not at all.

Until I read this, I didn't believe in the garbage coming from the left that Republicans are a bunch of misogynists, or misandrists for that matter.

10:04 AM By Bakersfield Crusader, Republicrats are often misogynists or misandrists! Congresswoman Mack is definitely a Republicrat! God bless, yours in Their Hearts, Kenneth M. Fisher

Why are Catholic bashers interfering in a Catholic website in a discussion among Catholics about Catholics and Catholic issues? Apparently some people don't have life or they cannot contain their hate.

@ nopain: I fail to see any "Catholic bashers" at the moment, although from time to time such a posting may appear. Just because someone challenges the Church, the local Bishop, or a specific Church teaching does not mean they are "Catholic bashers." They may simply be Catholics with a very strong opinion about some issue. For example, people who think the Church should allow married clergy are not necessarily anti-Church, but merely anti-celibacy (perhaps believing it's not necessary, or it leads to sexual outrages, or it keeps us from having enough priests to serve the people of God).

What it is, nopain, is the human instinct to find God. Man struggles with himself over this; most lose, some win. The hostiles who blog may sometimes stick around for replies, and that is what Catholicism does, convert souls.

How does one turn a Catholic basher into a Catholic. St Paul made this transition. How did He do it? My understanding is that he always believed in God, and believed according to the way he was taught by a famous Jewish pharisee. St Paul was taught to act according to the Ten Commandments, and as these were interpreted by the Jewish leaders. He believed fervently, and thus used his authority to persecute Catholics during the nascency of the Church. He did not apparently learn what the Great Commission taught because he had his ears shut and his sword in full swing. The Catholics were no match for him because they did not meet him with their swords and thus were killed before they could explain to him the Gospel. One day though St Paul ran into the Head Catholic Who did indeed wield His Sword, aka the Sword of the Lord. St Paul was knocked off his horse and transported to the Third Heaven. The rest is history, Europe was converted as a result of this sword fight between an ignorant intellectual believer and Jesus Christ. St Paul, like the later St Francis of Assisi, divested himself of his worldly patrimony and went to the pagans in abject humility, in worldly poverty, but clothed with the armor of God. What fragment of the Church does this today? It was St Francis who installed the now famous symbol of humility in the Catholic Church, namely the Creche. What fragment of the Church today approaches and allows to be approached the humility of Christ? Why did people turn to Christ when encountering St Paul or any of the saints, both well known and hidden from all but their very localized histories? Why do the bishops and popes these days allow the fakes and hypocrites to define Christ to the world? The bishops are in effect writing the definition of God with people who oppose God. No saint ever did this. The bishops are trying to define a straight line by using spiritual crooks. No real Catholic ever did this. It is the sin of bearing false witness
