Little Murders [Bishop Chaput Slams Obama on Abortion & Blasts Kmiec for Misleading Catholics]
Publ;ic Discourse ^ | Oct 18, 2008 | Charles J. Chaput

In an address delivered on October 17, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput stated that ''Prof. Douglas Kmiec has a strong record of service to the Church and the nation in his past. But I think his activism for Senator Barack Obama, and the work of Democratic-friendly groups like Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, have done a disservice to the Church, confused the natural priorities of Catholic social teaching, undermined the progress pro-lifers have made, and provided an excuse for some Catholics to abandon the abortion issue instead of fighting within their parties and at the ballot box to protect the unborn.''

Great letter! He says so many things and says them so briefly and well that it would be hard to beat.

Douglas Kmiec Exposed: Catholic Obama Backer Takes Pro-Abortion Position

by Steven Ertelt
LifeNews.com Editor
October 17
, 2008

Add to My Yahoo! Email RSS Printer

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Pepperdine University law professor Douglas Kmiec has been heralded as a leading pro-life Catholic scholar who happens to support Barack Obama. Kmiec has been making a supposedly pro-life case for Obama but he appeared to expose himself as an abortion advocate in a new editorial.

Writing in the Los Angeles Times, Kmiec appears to take a "personally opposed but" position that actually allows for legal abortions despite a claim to support abortion.

As one leading pro-life observer notes, this is the first time Kmiec has betrayed his own apparently pro-abortion position when defending Obama's abortion stance.

Kmiec employs the same kind of "abortion is between a woman, her doctor and God" argument Obama himself utilized in the Wednesday night presidential debate to defend his own view supporting abortion for any reason throughout pregnancy.

"Sometimes the law must simply leave space for the exercise of individual judgment, because our religious or scientific differences of opinion are for the moment too profound to be bridged collectively," Kmiec writes.

"When these differences are great and persistent, as they unfortunately have been on abortion, the common political ideal may consist only of that space. This does not, of course, leave the right to life undecided or unprotected," he adds.

Kmiec concludes his admission that present abortion law must continue to allow legal abortions by calling abortion a "sensitive moral decision" that "depend[s] on religious freedom and the voice of God as articulated in each individual's voluntary embrace of one of many faiths."

Kmiec's stunning admission wasn't lost on National Review writer Ramesh Ponnuru.

Ponnuru says the Kmiec piece is "pretty clearly an endorsement of the view that given the existence of moral conflict over abortion, the compromise position we should adopt is to be pro-choice."

"Obviously I disagree with that view. But agree or disagree, it's not the spiel Kmiec has been giving for most of the year," he explains.

'The previous argument has been that someone who favors legal protection for the unborn should be willing to support Obama even though he is pro-choice. Now we're being told that we should support Obama by jettisoning our views about the appropriate legal status of abortion," Ponnuru writes.

"Again, there are people who believe that 'personal opposition' to abortion is a sensible and coherent position. But it is just a repackaging of the Mario Cuomo position with the addition of a 'pro-life' label," he concludes.

Father Frank Pavone, the director of Priests for Life, tells LifeNews.com he agrees.

He explains: "This reminds me of the question I posed to Senator Chuck Shumer after he made a speech on the Senate floor in which he said, 'Some people believe life begins at conception, others believe it begins at birth, and others believe it begins sometime in between. Everyone has the right to believe what they want. So we legislators should not be trying to decide the issue for them.'"

Pavone adds: "My question was, 'What about the people who believe life begins sometime after birth? Do they too have the right to believe what they want? And how many of them have to believe the newborn isn’t human before we remove protection from the newborn?'"

The bottom line for Pavone is: "Human beings who are not protected cannot wait for a 'consensus' before they are protected. Justice demands that they be protected now, no matter how many people, including politicians, think they shouldn’t."

So I think that people who claim that the abortion struggle is ''lost'' as a matter of law, or that supporting an outspoken defender of legal abortion is somehow ''prolife,'' are not just wrong; they're betraying the witness of every person who continues the work of defending the unborn child. And I hope they know how to explain that, because someday they'll be required to.

Powerful statement. I will pass it on to my Obama-supporting-Catholic-brother-in-law.

It's wonderful to hear most of our Bishops coming out loud and strong against candidates who promote abortion. However Cardinal Georges comment about living in a country drenched in blood while true I have to wonder how he justifies keeping someone like Fr. Flager as pastor of St. Sabina as he is pushing for Obama? Given how strongly Obama champions abortion every Cardinal and Bishop should lead the charge against him and his party platform and if they don't they should be removed from their positions. The fact that about 1/2 the so called Catholics would vote for pro abort Obama into office tells me the silence on this issue in many many Catholic churches across this land for many years. As for Mr. Kemic I'm not sure he has ever been a real Catholic. He should be ashamed of himself.

As a Catholic, I feel the Church needs to speak out more forcefully. They should not allow any politician who support legal abortion to remain in the Church. The Catholic Church needs to tells it’s members to take a stand or leave!!! I lovingly remember my Irish grandmother saying the rosary in between her soap operas. If she knew that 40 million babies were killed, disabled babies born alive and allowed to die, she would know what to say to these so called pro choice Catholics. It is time that the Church leaders do the same. To have Andrew Greeley, a Jesuit priest, writing editorials condemning Sarah Palin, a woman who has chosen life, is unbelievable to me.

Very clear and very right.

One thing that people should think about is that, in theory, if one of these socialist candidates would step away from supporting intrinsic evils, they could in theory be supported by Catholics in good conscience.

But that never happens. Why?

Because socialism is evil.

It goes hand-in-hand with all this other stuff.

I agree. The bishops need to stop being so weak. They need a no-nonsense, unequivocal message.

Here’s an email I sent to Bishop Chaput:

To Bishop Chaput:

God bless you, Bishop!

I always look forward to reading your articles on this subject, and you always hit a homerun with it.

I am deeply saddened and disgusted with the way Catholics, even one of my best friends, rationalizes this issue. There is nothing more important than protecting the life of the unborn. I deeply fear what will happen to our nation if we elect Obama.

Please continue to be vocal in this crusade and bring more people with you.

I will pray for you that you can be a strong, fervent voice for the other U.S. Bishops, when you get together with them next month.

I strongly believe that the bishops need to have a much more committed, convicted, and unequivocal message on how this issue predominates a decision to vote for a candidate. More than ever, we need the bishops’ leadership on this issue. Please don’t let them get away with weakening that message.

Thank you again for your devotion.

I’ve thought about that, too.

I think you’ve made a great point.

If God wanted socialism, he would have given us one to vote for who was pro-life.

There is something fundamentally perverted about the socialism philosophy which, no matter what anybody says, is not truly Christian at all.

Not the first time something written by the walking dead Greeley has made me sick. He's a Jesuit so I question weather he's a real Catholic anyway. However I think the Church should put the decrepit old creep in a rest home somewhere and not let him communicate with the outside world. It's people of his ilk that confuse some of our less than informed Catholics.

Pope Pius XI:

“If Socialism, like all errors, contains some truth (which, moreover, the Supreme Pontiffs have never denied), it is based nevertheless on a theory of human society peculiar to itself and irreconcilable with true Christianity. Religious socialism, Christian socialism, are contradictory terms; no one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist.”

There is something fundamentally perverted about the socialism philosophy which, no matter what anybody says, is not truly Christian at all.

I agree with you!

We are commanded to give, to share, to help those who are in need. No where does Jesus say that the Government is to take care of the people. To me, it's always been about free will.

The democrats love to take other people's money to give away, but they sure aren't generous with their own money!

This was a fantastic article. Thank you so much for posting it!

We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue, and it's never an end in itself. In fact, tolerating grave evil within a society is itself a form of evil.

AMEN!

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20

“There is something fundamentally perverted about the socialism philosophy which, no matter what anybody says, is not truly Christian at all.”

All leftist thought, from the limousine liberalism of Hollyweird to the mass murdering uberleftism of Mao or Stalin, is of and from Satan.

Leftist concepts entered this world when Satan whispered them into human ears. They stink of him; they have his fingerprints all over them.

I responded with nothing else other than Pope Pius’ quote that Diago posted.

I’m going to continue to be a voice to his conscience for as long as it takes - I guess until hell freezes over.

The priests should be using the "H" (heretic) word on the pro-abortion "Catholics" every sermon on Sunday from now to the election. Example: if you believe in abortion, you are a heretic to the faith! If you vote for it, you are just as guilty in God's eyes as the ones who promote, perform and pay for it!

If it tees them off, so what. The priest won't have their blood on HIS hands for telling them the TRUTH.

I would love that. There would be a lot of people leaving, but priests should call a spade a spade.

What’s even worse than believing it yourself and voting for it is leading your wife, your children, your friends, and other people down the path to hell.

He was one of the biggest leaders in the charge. If McCain wins Colorado, check out the Catholic vote. If there’s an unusually high vote for Catholics in favor of McCain, you’ll know Bishop Chaput probably had a major hand in that victory.

Oh, I know what it is. It is the Encyclical Letter of His Holiness Pope Leo XIII issued on May 15, 1891, “On the Condition of the Working Classes.”

I was just surprised to see it cited in support of leftist policies, as it contains passages such as this:

5. In any event, We see clearly, and all are agreed that the poor must be speedily and fittingly cared for, since the great majority of them live undeservedly in miserable and wretched conditions.

6. After the old trade guilds had been destroyed in the last century, and no protection was substituted in their place, and when public institutions and legislation had cast off traditional religious teaching, it gradually came about that the present age handed over the workers, each alone and defenseless, to the inhumanity of employers and the unbridled greed of competitors. A devouring usury, although often condemned by the Church, but practiced nevertheless under another form by avaricious and grasping men, has increased the evil; and in addition the whole process of production as well as trade in every kind of goods has been brought almost entirely under the power of a few, so that a very few rich and exceedingly rich men have laid a yoke almost of slavery on the unnumbered masses of non-owning workers.

7. To cure this evil, the Socialists, exciting the envy of the poor toward the rich, contend that it is necessary to do away with private possession of goods and in its place to make the goods of individuals common to all, and that the men who preside over a municipality or who direct the entire State should act as administrators of these goods. They hold that, by such a transfer of private goods from private individuals to the community, they can cure the present evil through dividing wealth and benefits equally among the citizens.

8. But their program is so unsuited for terminating the conflict that it actually injures the workers themselves. Moreover, it is highly unjust, because it violates the rights of lawful owners, perverts the function of the State, and throws governments into utter confusion.”

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that it would be perverted in the service of that which it condemns.

Holy Crap!

Unbelievable find, dsc!

I can’t believe first of all that he would go back over 100 years to make a point! And, obviously, the conditions of workers and the lower class then were probably a lot different than now.

That is unbelievable that the same Pope who talked about that actually came against socialism!

Thank you so much.

I will quote Pope Leo, too!

I’m going to have so much fun throwing a whole load of crap back in his face. :-)

Excellent article. If I didn’t already have the best tag line (taken from an observation someone made about Pope Benedict), this Baptist woman would use this one paraphrased from Bishop Chaput:
Don’t be quiet about moral wrong out of a misguided wish to be polite.

(”We need to remember that tolerance is not a Christian virtue, and it’s never an end in itself. In fact, tolerating grave evil within a society is itself a form of evil. Likewise, democratic pluralism does not mean that Catholics should be quiet in public about serious moral issues because of some misguided sense of good manners.”)

That link to “Obama and Infanticide” by George and Levin yields this, “Obama chose to defend the widest possible scope for legal abortion by building a fence around it, even if that meant permitting a child who survives an abortion to be left to die without even being afforded basic comfort care.”

The last line of the article is missing:

Maybe this should be an excerpt so as to not infringe on COPYRIGHT...

At a minimum, the COPYRIGHT should be included...

Technically, it is not ARCHBISHOP CHAPUT speaking, but CITIZEN CHAPUT and AUTHOR CHAPUT speaking.

He is not speaking for the Archdiocese of Denver.

He may have the title of Archbishop, but that is not where or why these remarks are made (he makes this clear in the article/letter).
