Common Ground with Theorists of Murder?

Surprise, surprise. Today news from CNA:

"As President-elect Obama builds his new administration, his list of new appointees makes it even more apparent that he is comfortable with the pro-abortion lobby. This became even more clear on Saturday when Ellen Moran, executive director of EMILY’s List, was named White House communications director.

Moran currently serves as executive director of EMILY’s List, where she oversees the national staff and charts the overall strategic direction of the organization. EMILY's List, one of the most important Democratic constituency groups, says it is "dedicated to building a progressive America by electing Democratic pro-choice women to office."

There is no common ground possible with a person who believes it is acceptable behavior to murder another person, until they renounce that position. The position itself precludes common ground, because it is a denial of common humanity. That's what being "pro-choice" on abortion means--it's a denial of common humanity.

To those "Catholics" like "Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good," who say:

"In an effort to promote more productive ways to reduce the abortion rate, Catholics in Alliance just released a groundbreaking national abortion reduction study that offers compelling findings pro-life and pro-choice leaders can unite behind to reach common ground solutions on this profound moral issue. "

Or like Professor Douglas Kmiec, who says:

"The central hope of the Obama campaign is to find common ground—not by "favoring" that which can never be acceptable, the taking of innocent unborn life, but by dealing with the legal reality in a way that at least reduces the likelihood of abortion."

We reply with Lord Acton's words: "The greatest crime is Homicide. The accomplice is no better than the assassin; the theorist is worse." A person who is "pro-choice" on abortion is a theorist of murder. There can never be "common ground."

Catholics like Kmieck who are inclined to cooperate with pro-abortion democrats are the result of 40 years of non-catechesis. Is this the Springtime of the Church the fathers of Vatican II had in mind?

I am troubled by the California bishops' tolerance of pro abortion and pro gay politicians. I do not think there is much hope for the church in California under the current leadership. The persecution is coming and all Christians will have to choose between the church of Jesus Christ and the church of the world.
