Is That So Hard To Understand?

I guess only if you are committed to missing the point on purpose.

Very nice post today by Thomas Peters at the American Papist, in response to John Tomasic, who criticized Archbishop Chaput for his "showboating" on abortion. Thomas responded (excerpt):

"1) Abp. Chaput believes that abortion is the murder of an innocent, helpless human being. Science agrees - but we don't need to get into that now. For our purposes, Abp. Chaput genuinely believes abortion is murder.

2) There are millions of abortions each year. That means Abp. Chaput believes there are millions of human beings being murdered in the United States every year.

3) Because of 1 & 2, Abp. Chaput believes abortion is the No. 1 moral issue of our age. Because he does not have an infinite amount of time, as much as he sincerely cares about these other issues, he focuses on abortion in a special way when he speaks publicly."
