The Washington Post the other day posted a lengthy interview with Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Catholic. A pertinent excerpt:
MS. ROMANO: You are also a pro-choice Catholic, and I was reading some stories out of your home state recently where one of the bishops took an action. Can you tell us a little bit about that?There's more, and video, at the link.
SECRETARY SEBELIUS: Well, the Archbishop in the Kansas City area did not approve of my conduct as a public official and asked that I not present myself for communion.
MS. ROMANO: What did you think about that?
SECRETARY SEBELIUS: Well, it was one of the most painful things I have ever experienced in my life, and I am a firm believer in the separation of church and state, and I feel that my actions as a parishioner are different than my actions as a public official and that the people who elected me in Kansas had a right to expect me to uphold their rights and their beliefs even if they did not have the same religious beliefs that I had. And that's what I did: I took an oath of office and I have taken an oath of office in this job and will uphold the law.
MS. ROMANO: Do you continue to take communion?
SECRETARY SEBELIUS: I really would prefer not to discuss with you. That's really a personal--thank you.
Where’s that picture of the smallest violin in the world playing Hearts and Flowers (thumb and forefinger rubbing together)?
Sure, a pro-choice Catholic that says she does it to serve the citizens. Hmmm...
Ironic isn't it that an oath she swore to God to uphold, to her, supersedes Gods law....
As she orders millions of people into gas chambers she will say that her actions as a government official are separate from her private civilian life.
Leftists do NOT believe that, by the way. EVERYTHING is political to a leftist. literally everything.
Says it all...not only for her, but for our "Christian" President Obortion as well.
Obviously Mrs. Sebelius’s trumps serving the state over serving the Lord!
Somehow I don't think that kind of answer is going to fly when you come face to face with your Creator.
Kathy Sebelius -— just another “cafeteria Catholic”.
Well, darlin’ how do you think the baby feels when he’s murdered in his mother’s womb.
Look, she's an embarrassment to the whole country ~ this argument that the separation of church and state requires that she kill babies is the most ridiculous thing I've ever herd.
Now they've said that PA Senator's elevator doesn't go all the way to the top, this ol'gal doesn't have seals to keep her brains from leaking.
She feels pain because she can't take part in communion, but I didn't hear her say that the thought of abortion causes her pain.
You can't honestly seperate your core values from your actions, at least I don't see how.
A cafeteria Catholic.
The very same analogy popped into my mind the minute I read her statement.
Mark 8:36...."What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?"
IMHO, any one that claims to be a Christian and is pro-choice/for abortion is not a Christian.
Was it part of her oath to the people to take MONEY from
George R. Tiller, the nation’s most prominent provider of controversial late-term abortions.
Perhaps she could use that cash to bribe a priest to give her communion!
Why would it be “personal” if if the issue whether or not she takes her Church teaching seriously?
Where is the St (Sir) Thomas More in her? “The King’s good servant, but God’s first.”
Hey Kathy....it’s going to be even more painful in eternity if you don’t change.
