The following comes from an Oct. 30 story on World Net Daily.
Bill Dodd was a graduate of Justine Catholic High School in Napa and showed up for a high school reunion, according to another Justine alumnus.
A Democratic Party candidate for the California State Assembly has mailed out a flyer trumpeting his commitment to women’s rights, including abortion on demand, but some who received the campaign piece think he may have pushed the envelope too far.
More plainly, they’re wondering if the candidate, Bill Dodd, has even thought through the chilling implications of his advertisement.
On the flyer Dodd is pictured holding his baby granddaughter, Emma.
On the flyer, Dodd boasts “Democrat Bill Dodd will champion women’s rights.”
Below that pledge is a picture of Dodd lovingly looking down at his granddaughter, Emma, who is shown sitting on his lap.
“That’s his commitment to every Californian, including his granddaughter, Emma,” the flyer states.
The other side of the flyer repeats the pledge to champion women’s rights and lists Dodd’s top priority as working to “defend pro-choice laws and oppose any effort to chip away at them.”
Dodd’s flyer sent shivers down the spines of California pro-lifers because it could easily be interpreted as Dodd championing his granddaughter Emma’s right to abort his own future great-grandchild.
One of the recipients of the mailer was a conservative woman who lives in state House District 4, which includes Napa County and all or parts of five other counties west of Sacramento and north of the San Francisco Bay area.
The woman saw the message and was “floored,” according to one pro-life organization in the state….
Charlie Schaupp, the Republican candidate running against Dodd, was contacted by WND but said he has not seen the flyer… “He’s probably saying that his granddaughter has the right to choice over her own body,” Schaupp said. “That’s true, we all do have that power, but we have responsibility too, and that’s to protect the life of the unborn and all innocent life….”

This is what happens when Bishops do not do their jobs.
They must teach, correct, and if necessary discipline Catholics within their own Diocese.
This is what happens when Bishops (and their Diocese Priests) do not actively encourage the Laity to read the Bible and Catechism of the Catholic Church at home.
This is what happens when Catholic clergy and laity vote for those who support the Intrinsic Evils of: Abortion, Euthanasia, Contraception, Homosexual Marriage, Human Cloning, and Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
CCC: ” 2285 Scandal takes on a particular gravity by reason of the authority of those who cause it or the weakness of those who are scandalized.
It prompted our Lord to utter this curse: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Scandal is grave when given by those who by nature or office are obliged to teach and educate others.
Jesus reproaches the scribes and Pharisees on this account: he likens them to wolves in sheep’s clothing.”
CCC: ” 2286 Scandal can be provoked by laws or institutions, by fashion or opinion.
herefore, they are guilty of scandal who establish laws or social structures leading to the decline of morals and the corruption of religious practice,
or to “social conditions that, intentionally or not, make Christian conduct and obedience to the Commandments difficult and practically impossible.”
This is also true of business leaders who make rules encouraging fraud, teachers who provoke their children to anger,
or manipulators of public opinion who turn it away from moral values. “
How corrupt is Bill Dodd’s heart and soul when he can look into the eyes of his innocent granddaughter and with a smile think to himself something like, “I will do my best to keep it possible for you to murder YOUR innocent children with impunity when you grow up, if and when you so choose”.
This is REALLY evil!
It is absolutely chilling isn’t it? Thank you for showing the reality behind the phony hype words and photo in that flyer and then pulling away the disgustingly evil veil that really shows how lost, how corrupt and how low an individual can go when trying to get elected for a political office. This is just what every little granddaughter hopes and dreams for… A grandpa that will help her to execute her own innocent baby and his own great grandchild.
Bill Dodd’s new campaign slogan might as well read……. “I’ll sell my very own soul to get elected and potentially even my own granddaughter’s soul too.”
You are right Tracy! “This is REALLY evil!
Grandpa Bill Dodd, You are culpable! You know very well what the Fifth Commandment is. You are no spring chicken either Grandpa Bill. Is this how you want to face God? There is no fool like an old fool and this time you have really hurt yourself and brought shame to the cherished honor in the name Grandpa. Please go immediately to confession and then publicly retract your statements to champion the murdering of innocent babies. Someone who is that willing to disregard his Catholic roots and innocent life to roll the dice with his very own soul and potentially the soul of his granddaughter, shows what poor judgment they have.
When ever the STATE mandates an EVIL ACT as a “RIGHT”, you can be sure, as day turns into night, that it will not be far off before she mandate that EVIL ACT as an “OBLIGATION”. (for some so-called “humanitarian” good of course!) :(
How deviant and corrupt! This poor, helpless little girl needs to be protected from her evil grandfather! This man is certainly NOT a Catholic, and must be excommunicated! As for the evil act of MURDER of an innocent, unborn child– if women say they “want so-called rights,” the FIRST thing, is to LIVE RESPONSIBLY!! NO SEX OUTSIDE MARRIAGE!! PERIOD!! And to be RESPONSIBLE to a poor, little, helpless unborn child– if pregnant!! EVERY CHILD– BORN OR UNBORN– IS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY!! NO SUCH THING– as “FREE” Love, nor “FREE” ANYTHING— in this world! NO ONE is “FREE!!” EVERYTHING IS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY!! All women, and all men, too– must HUMBLY BOW TO GOD, the Creator of all LIFE!!
What do I think of politicians who seek to be elected to office by advocating the annihilation of unborn children? What do I think of men who would stand by while bad laws take the lives of the next generation? What do I think of such men and women who choose the wide path rather than the narrow road to life? I think they should not get our votes. After 5pm mass at Divine Savior Parish in Orangevale, I found a flyer for “Pro Choice” politician Doug Ose on my windshield. Really? Should I put a man who wants to trample on the rights of the unborn child back into office? I think not. How dare his supporters walk onto hallowed church ground and advocate within feet of the Blessed Sacrament for a man who wants to destroy the unborn Christ of our time!!! This sheep smells a wolf penetrating the flock!
I do believe the Catholic High School in Napa is Justin Siena not Justine as
stated. Bill Dodd evidently does not understand that abortion is murder…pure and simple. He must have missed the religion class when this was discussed.
Does Bill Dodd present his very sinful self at the Altar of the Lord? If so, where is his Bishop?
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika and His Church!
Viva Cristo Rey!
Yours in Their Hearts,

This is truly the darkest of evil, but it is the reality of the wicked sinful times we live in. You often hear the comment that America is the world’s great hope and also powerful people and politicians calling upon God to bless this nation. America today no longer conveys spiritual or moral hope only material and I believe that God did once bless this nation and its people but no longer as we have become a sick sinful wicked people who deserve having Obama. Abortion, pornography everywhere, drugs, high illegitimate birth rate, evil apostate federal judges imposing evil on us , more people cohabitating unmarried vs. married and a host of other things destroying our once moral society. Judeo Christianity is collapsing before our very eyes and for believers, oppression will probably grow. The Democratic party is evil and the Republicans can’t save us. Only God’s Church with an inspired priesthood .
