OPINION: Doug Kmiecís Book, the Nature of Freedom and a 'good' Conscience
Catholic Online ^ | 9/26/08 | Deacon Keith Fournier

Posted on 09/25/2008 4:03:03 PM PDT by tcg

Doug is being used by the supporters of Barrack Obama, a candidate who I labeled in my last article as an “Abortion Hawk” because of his unrelenting support of the undeclared war on the occupants of the once safe first home of the whole human race (the womb), precisely to make a theological, philosophical and allegedly “moral” argument for voting for Obama. Doug is the intelligent “Catholic scholar” they hope will help them to win more Catholics to the Obama candidacy. They have a serious “Catholic problem” because their candidate has absolutely promised to sign the so called “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) into law as soon as he is elected. He will thereby guarantee the so called “right” to abort (kill) children in the womb. Yet, at the same time, this candidate continues to call abortion a “moral issue”. He then attempts to sound like he wants to make the prevalence of abortion less “necessary”. Just this past week, Cardinal Rigali addressed this kind of contradictory approach in a letter which he sent to the Congress on behalf of all Bishops in the United States. He wrote “…there is one thing absolutely everyone should be able to agree on: We can’t reduce abortions by promoting abortion…. No one who sponsors or supports legislation like FOCA can credibly claim to be part of a good-faith discussion on how to reduce abortions.” So, Doug has opened the moral discussion and I will continue to engage him on it.

A “good” conscience can never cooperate with or further intrinsic evil. Such an exercise of human freedom is “anarchic” and will erode freedom and perpetuate the Culture of death and use.

The creature Kmiec obviously is being paid for its soul by its new master, Satan.

I think the fake Catholic is looking for a judicial appointment from President Obama. Why let a few million murdered babies stand in the way. What a pathetic POS Kmiec is.

I don’t think Catholic Scalia, Roberts, Alito and Thomas would want him on the SCOTUS.

Miece has excommunicated himself. Here's what bishops said to Pelosi. Applies to Biden and Kmiec as well. They are all CINOs.

Here is the complete list of American bishops who have responded to Nancy Pelosi's comments so far:
  1. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver was the first American bishop to respond

  4. Cardinal Justin Regali of Philadelphia, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities, issued this statement through the USCCB website...
  5. ... Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, chairman of the Committee on Doctrine, joined him

  25. Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn: "Judging the Candidates"

{Last updated on September 10th.}

Notes:

  • Previous #23 has been removed. Bishop Joseph Gossman of Raleigh, NC is actually the bishop emeritus, and the new bishop, Michael Burbidge has not, to my knowledge, made a personal statement.
  • Previous #16 has also been removed, it was an erroneous duplication of current #13.
  • #26 was added September 10th, although he published his column September 6th

What other motive would he have? Or is he of the Jesuit persuasion?

This so call acadmeic Catholic “conservative” also has another problem with his thinking. He had a family member murdered ( I belive a brother in law) by a thug with a gun. He blames the gun. He supports gun control to the point that he disagrees with the USSC ruling that we a free people have a individual right to own firearms. He is wrong in this and on his support of Obama.
