Authentic Slaughterhouses

Our Salesian Archbishop Amato, working with Cardinal Levada at the Vatican, is a man after my own heart. He ignited a firestorm when he told a group of airport chaplains that abortion is just as evil as killing innocent bystanders in a suicide attack.

Amato further cited: “abortion clinics as authentic slaughterhouses of budding human beings” and “the laboratories where, for example, RU486, the morning after pill, is made or where human embryos are manipulated as if they were simple biological material.”

In a recent interview he referred to what is called “terrorism with a human face.” This type of terrorism is deceptively propagandized by the media, skillfully manipulates traditional language and creates expressions which hide the tragic reality of the facts. For example “abortion is described as the “voluntary termination of pregnancy” and not what it is, namely the killing of a defenseless human being; an abortion clinic is described as “center of reproductive health; euthanasia is described a “death with dignity.”
Terms which present as good that which is intrinsically evil.

Unfortunately the manipulation works. Even faithful Catholics are deceived.

If only Archbishop Amato could influence Cardinal Levada who sees no problem in giving the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord to those who are "guilty of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord"!
