Re: Catholics who accept abortion
How many members of PETA are lobbyists for the fur industry?
How many members of the National Rifle Association fight
against gun ownership? How many Audubon Society folks
advocate strip mining? You'd think the answer would be none
because why would anybody voluntarily associate with an
organization with whose core principles they do not agree?
Seems to me it would be a waste of time, effort and money.
So then, why does it happen in the Catholic Church? Why do so
many people who claim to be Catholic attend Mass but will
state they're OK with abortion - sorry, that pro-choice
mantra "can't impose my values" bit doesn't work - and
publicly proclaim they're voting for people who do everything
they can to defend the killing of unborn children? By the
way, the man re-elected as president of the United States had
a large number of Catholic voters backing him. As an Illinois
state senator, he voted against a bill on multiple occasions
that would have required medical care for a child lucky
enough to still be alive after a failed abortion.
If you're reading this and are one of those "pro-choice
Catholics," why do you attend Mass? Over many years I've seen
you get up and leave when a priest's homily points out the
intrinsic evil of abortion and euthanasia. I've heard about
the letters those priests receive complaining about those
homilies. Do you really think they're going to stop preaching
morals? That the church is going to change its position on
life? I'll ask the question again. Why would you voluntarily
associate with anything when you do not agree with its core
