So what if people leave the Church over it! So what if the collection plate gets a lot smaller! If Catholics had been told years ago, that voting for a pro abortion candidate, would mean you are no longer welcome in the Church,The make up of the Supreme Court would be such that abortion would be illegal.
Not to put it all on the Catholic Church, because the same can be said for the other main stream Churches as well.
Christians are against abortion and gay marriage. PERIOD
Bart Stupac being a Democrat, should have been enough reason to kick him out of the Church
The bishops want the money.
Cardinal George soft-pedals abortion because he has to raise $120 Million a year from wealthy, pro-abortion donors. The same is true in all the big cities with Catholic schools.
