If more American Catholic prelates decide to challenge their local culture-of-death Catholic politicians, theyll need courage. Unlike the battle for desegregationwhich had the support of Hollywood, the media, the universities, and the courtsthe pro-life war has only the White House, one branch of Congress, and two Christian denominations.
Yet this is all the more reason why every cardinal and bishop must expose this evil. And if that involves warning and denying the sacraments to culture-of-death Catholic politicians, so be it. As the bishops have already written, challenging these politicians isnt voluntary. Its a duty and a pastoral responsibility.
For many years since Roe there have been calls to excommunicate these SOB (sons of Baal). Some campaigns have been from major organizations going to high offices within the Vatican.
They've all failed.
The one man who could make it happen is the Pope himself. He has been in charge since Oct. 1978. He could get worldwide coverage by formally and publicly excommunicating these rats himself.
He could set the stage for it to be a global teaching + disciplining event. Not just in the US but everywhere. Maybe cover one country per week, kind of a Holy "shock and awe" campaign of papal proportions.
It wouldnt get swept away in a couple of news cycles either.
I always ask myself why hasn't he done it himself? (In his own way.) No one could stop him. He is after all the most responsible.
Lastly, if he did this, it would be great but it would be treating only a symptom of the disease.
The solution to ending the culture of death does not realistically lie with changing the minds of pro-abortion adults; it lies with preserving the 99+ % of children that are naturally pro-life on their first day of school.
