Why Warren Buffet Is Anti-Catholic

Warren Buffett’s comment that the rich should pay higher taxes, now enshrined by President Barack Obama as the “Buffett Rule,” is drawing much applause. What is not being discussed is the billionaire’s support for anti-Catholicism. First some background information.

Over several decades, Buffett has spent a fortune funding radical abortion organizations like NARAL and Planned Parenthood; he has lavishly given money to train a new generation of abortion physicians; he has spent millions to help RU-486 (the abortion-inducing drug) to win FDA approval; and he gave his pro-abortion, population-control friends at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation nearly $31 billion in 2006 for more of the same. There’s nothing anti-Catholic about any of this, but when he intentionally seeks to subvert Catholicism by dishonestly funding pro-abortion organizations that have hijacked the Catholic name, that’s another story.

To be specific, Buffett has given hundreds of millions over the years to anti-Catholic front groups like Catholics for Choice (formerly Catholics for a Free Choice) and its sister organization in Latin America, Catholics for the Right to Decide. In 2010, the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation alone gave $759,822 to the former, and almost $1.7 million to the latter. These letter-head organizations wouldn’t exist if they depended on donations from members—they don’t have any—they exist because of the likes of Warren Buffett.

If Buffett, or someone like him, were to throw millions upon millions funding Jews for Jesus, what would the Jewish community call him? Now you know why Warren Buffett has earned the tag anti-Catholic.

  1. We now have a President that is perfectly willing to see his own grandchildren killed by an abortionist. That is the logical implication of his stance on abortion.

    Catholics should be told it is a mortal sin to vote for this satanic individual. Why aren’t our Bishops screaming about this fact?

    • Absolutely right. Imagine it is 1957 and the Nazis in Germany were never defeated. They have continued their killing ways, but every year they need to be voted back into power. Those Germans who would vote to keep this killing machine in power would share the guilt for all future victims.
      The Democrat Party is our Nazi Party, and unfortunately our Bishops in America are both too afraid to stand up in the way you suggest, and too connected with the Democrats in other social agenda issues, like amnesty, so they dare not criticize. Shameful … and too much like failed shepherds.

  2. Maybe the Federal Government’s ‘Mandate for Contraceptive/Sterilization Coverage’ will wake the U.S. Bishops from their 40 year slumber.

  3. They always go for the top dog. The Bishops should be screaming bloody murder for what Warren Buffet is doing along with the president!!!~

  4. Catholics who have “pick and choose” attitudes about their faith are not really Catholics at all.If we don’t take the whole belief of any faith than we are truly not of that faith, even though we might have been born into it.

  5. Not just the bishops, but also, and perhaps more importantly, the laity should be screaming loudly.

    “Not just the bishops, but also, and perhaps more importantly, the laity should be screaming loudly.”

    Indeed, I think you have pinpointed the difficulty. With 90% of Catholics using contraceptives when they need to control their fertility, I don’t foresee hearing much screaming from the laity about the contraceptive mandate.

    With a greater proportion of Catholics getting abortions than evangelicals, I wonder how much screaming we’re going to hear over Warren Buffet’s support for a woman’s right to choose? My guess is, not much.

    These are not mysteries. The Catholic laity simply doesn’t agree with the bishops. The bishops will have to decide how to deal with this reality.

    “We now have a President that is perfectly willing to see his own grandchildren killed by an abortionist.”

    We have a President who trusts his daughters to make the right decision on whether to bring an embryo or fetus to viability in their own bodies. He places their decision on when to become mothers above his “right” to grandchildren. Wow, what a crazy guy.

  8. Holy God, have mercy on us.

  9. Again our Bishops fail to forcefully lead and openly tell the press how they resent these anti-Catholic funding by Buffet.
