Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- In an attempt to counter criticism that it's unyielding support of abortion runs counter to the Christian religious views of most Americans, Planned Parenthood has announced it has hired a national chaplain to advocate the "spiritual side" of abortion advocacy.

The national abortion business appointed Rev. Ignacio Castuera, senior pastor of St. John's United Methodist Church in the Watts community of Los Angeles, as its chaplain.

"His expertise in offering spiritual insight and guidance to the reproductive health movement is invaluable," Planned Parenthood president Gloria Feldt said.

The appointment is also an attempt by the abortion business to foster better relations with the Hispanic community, which is largely pro-life.

But that won't fly with Hispanic-Americans, Raimundo Rojas tells LifeNews.com.

This is too funny. They hire Guido Sarducci to put a Christian face on an anti-Christian movement; no one will be fooled. There are already enough ministers willing to shill for the abortion movement; this does nothing to change the equation.

Oh that's just great. :-( Another reason to be embarrassed to be associated with the UMC.

I remember the Nazi Party using priests and preachers to shill for them too, while sending the likes of Dietrich Bonnhoffer to imprisonment and death.

Anathema sit.

INTREP - Just by virtue of the fact that he has accepted this position means that he must be an APOSTATE!

special advisor on the murder of babies in the womb - better a mill stone should have been tied about his neck and be thrown in to the sea

I think Psalm 137:9 is the appropriate verse to pray for the parties mentioned in this article. Since our Rock is Jesus, we can ask God to deal with those who kill babies for a living by taking away their own children from them, by converting them into pro-life Christians!

Just goes to show that if a person doesn't have a creed to stand on, anything goes. Just because a person calls himself "Christian" does not mean that he adhers to Biblical doctrine.

Matthew 7:15,16 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"

This is akin to Hillary saying she is hiring a personal trainer.

>senior pastor of St. John's United Methodist Church

The Methodist church here in town is the only one that won't support the crisis pregnancy center. I can't say that I'm surprised...but I do wonder how these clowns let the Episcopalians steal the leadership position on the whole "gay" thing from them.

Come on ye Methodists - you'd better start working harder on that apostasy business! :)

Well, I guess I have to check the UMC off the list of Christian denominations.

You know, it keeps getting shorter...

Note that he is a methodist. How will this in any way influence mostly *Catholic* pro-life Hispanics?

anyway, will he be giving any last rites for preborn aborted babies? What 'guidance' will he give?

Let's not forget the millions of Hispanic Evangelicals and Pentecostal Christians as well who would be even less receptive to these cretins message.

It says "The appointment is also an attempt by the abortion business to foster better relations with the Hispanic community, which is largely pro-life."

What it means

"it is also an attempt by the abortion mills to get more business from the Hispanic community, which is a growing minority and a huge possible profit center"

Baz-zastards......
