Religion 101 for Joe and Nancy

One of my interventions in the world of abortion politics, that literally circled the globe, was my letter to Nancy Pelosi in January 2007. Numerous respondents complained that the Bishops were not raising the same flag against abortion.

Bishops were willing to jump on the wagons of global warming, immigration, social justice and the like, but spoke very cautiously (or ignored it altogether) when it came to pro-life, single sex marriage, homosexuality, gay adoptions and the like.

But after Nancy’s anti-Catholic (and very ignorant) responses in her televised interview on Meet the Press; followed by our “Catholic” VP nominee Joe Biden’s display of ignorance re: Catholic morality on his Meet the Press interview, our Bishops rose, as they never had before, to speak out clearly and with a conviction –even though for the most part it went undeclared in the general media. Life begins at conception and the right to life starts then and may not be aborted.

I fail to understand how good Catholics, even priests who should know better, can support politicians who accept abortion with the excuse that they are otherwise good people supporting social just, etc.

What could possibly be a proportionate reason for the more than 45 million children killed by abortion in the past 35 years? (see following post)

Nancy and Joe, you are both failures as Catholics and need to take Catholic Truth 101 again. At the same time learn what science has discovered: life is precious from conception.

Hi Father ... I enjoy your blog very much and I have a request. In this particular article, you mention your letter to Nancy Pelosi. Is there a link to that anywhere that you could provide with this post? Also, you mention sometimes at the end of your posts to "(see following post)." Can you put a link under those words that brings the viewer to that post?

Thank you,
