I, like millions of other Pro-Life people, am sincerely hoping that the Lord will use Pope Benedict XVI to help the American President see the conflict between his claim to respect the Social Teaching of the Catholic Church, most especially as it relates to our obligations in solidarity to give the poor a love of preference. As Blessed Teresa of Calcutta reminded us so clearly, children in the womb are the poorest of the poor. Yet, he has stopped his ears to their cry.
Throughout his campaign Barack Obama reminded us of our obligation to love our neighbor. He told us that we are our brother and sisters keepers. Yet, he fails to acknowledge that the child in the first home of the whole human race is our first neighbor. I am sure that if he were asked, the President would agree that it is wrong to kill an innocent neighbor. Yet, he does not see the contradiction in his support of the positive law in the United States which protects the intentional killing of our youngest neighbors for any reason up to the moment of birth and his claims of compassion.
That brings me to Justice Ginsburg, eugenics and the meeting between the Pope and President....

” He told us that we are our brother and sisters keepers. Yet, he fails...”
And that’s really what you want. Isn’t it? To be made keepers of all the failures around us?
Yeah, that’s really conservative...
Or has everyone heard this one already?
