It’s about time. Finally at least a few of the Archbishops of the Roman Catholic Church are showing a small amount of backbone and speaking up to defend the Church. Fox news’s Bill Sammon reports that Pelosi told Tom Brokaw of NBC that “the doctors of the church have not been able to make that definition and that St. Augustine said (life begins) at three months.” However, Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington says she’s wrong. Fox quotes him as saying, “The current teaching of the Catholic Church on human life and abortion is the same as it was 2,000 years ago. From the beginning the Catholic Church has respected the dignity of all human life from the moment of conception to natural death.”
Joe Biden is not winning points with conservative Catholics either. As a pro-choice democrat, Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput has told him to forget about taking Holy Communion at Mass.
So whoopee, 2 bishops in the USA stand up for the Church and its members who believe its teachings. When Kerry ran, 10 bishops stood up to them. Where in the world are the other bishops?
Unfortunately the Catholic Church has not only pro-choice members, but pro-choice priests and perhaps even bishops, though I know of none.
