wow, good for him.
I get tired of all the liberals saying that morality should not be legislated. A general lack of morality has social costs. Many of the social problems that liberals say we should all be paying to take care of, are the result of poor or lacking morals.
I'll make a deal with all the liberals, I'll stay out of pushing for morality, and you can stay out of my wallet at tax time.
God bless him and the truth he writes.
Liberals are only against legislating morality that they don't agree with. Their whole "social justice" crusade is about legislating morality.
Good point. It's that whole, "be careful what you wish for", thing. Thanks for reminding me.
Very good! From SF, no less. Sts Peter and Paul is in North Beach, in the old Italian section, for those who are not familiar with SF.
A couple of years ago the Orange County Diocese Paper (CA) had a wonderful photo of John Kerry that covevered the entire front page.
"John Kerry - the Catholic Candidate"
was the Title that adorned that free advertising.
Finally, the Catholics may be waking up....and its starting in San Francisco of all places.
Good for him! I wish more would speak out like this.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic Ping List:
Please ping me to all note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of interest.
'God bless him and the truth he writes.'
Yes I agree...I'm so glad Father sent it...
Another favourite of theirs is to say "my conscience tells me it's right and the Church teaches we are answerable to our consciences". I've heard Ms Pelosi go down this route.
Complete rubbish of course and further proof of their ignorance of what the Church actually teaches. The Catholic Catechism says a conscience should be PROPERLY FORMED for one to make decisions based on their "conscience".
If a politician doesn't even know the BASICS (i.e. that abortion is intinsically evil and always wrong thus making the pro-choice stance incompatible with the Catholic one) then obviously their conscience is NOT properly formed and any moral judgements they make according to their "conscience" is flawed.
Yes. A very courageous priest he is! He needs our prayers. I'm sure there are many prelates who would like to send him for Soviet style "re-education".
OUCH boy this not going make madame Speaker happy LOVE this smack chat 101 on Nancy ROFL
WooHoo! Good news for Madame Speaker to ponder.
