Wasn’t Drinan the one who got elected to Congress? If so Pope JP II forced him to step down.
The Church should excommunicate politicians that back abortion.
And this strategy worked so well that, today, it is virtually impossible to find a Catholic politician holding national public office who is pro-life.At the time I think that Rick Santorum was still in office, and certainly Paul Ryan was in office -- two of the most pro-life politicians in recent memory. Oh, wait a minute. Maybe the author meant DEMOCRAT Catholic pro-life politicians are impossible to find. That certainly would be true, but REPUBLICAN Catholic pro-life politicians abound..., thanks be to God.
No question that most of those priests were trouble-making heretics. I’m not so sure about Fr. John Courtney Murray. He was a “modernist,” all right. But his writings are a good deal more nuanced, and I’m not at all sure that he was a heretic. Certainly not a deliberate heretic and Church-underminer like the others. He was often cited by others as an excuse for their dissident ways, but it’s not always clear that he really supported them.
Just a sidenote, in a way. Otherwise, the article is certainly true. Although, to be frank, the Kennedys were mobsters, and they were extremely willing to violate Church teachings if it suited them. It didn’t take much to twist them around.
I don’t respect them. The kennedy’s decided to descend into evil after inviting evil into their lives. There is no excuse.
The entire Kennedy crowd including relatives, hangers on, running dog lackeys and in-laws are EVIL
“Personally, I am against abortion, but the courts have ruled on this issue.”
The psychopaths that run the Democrat party believe that our planet can only support 30 million people. The fact that it currently supports billions of people is quite an inconvenient truth for them. They are getting old and they realize that abortion will not reduce the world population to the level they want it to be. What next? Death panels? Once you start down that road, where do you draw the line? And the Moslems are smiling all the while.
The RC Church is not the oldest most profitable multinational corporation in human history for altruistic reasons.
He endorsed and was succeeded by Barney Frank.
You are right about that fact that pro-life GOP legistlators are abundant as opposed to their counterparts in the Democrat party.
Actually, in 2009 there were still some Catholic pro-lifers in the US Congress (not in the Senate). Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi purged the party of the last vestige when the double crossed Bart Stupak (ambushed him might be a better term.) The die was cast earlier when the Catholic, ,pro-life governor of Pennsylvania, Bob Casey (Senior) asked to speak to the Dem. convention being held in NYC in 1996, but was denied.
Now there are no Catholic Democrats who are pro-life anywhere near to Washington DC circles.
And what is it you allege the hierarchy did to keep donations flowing?
Today comes this article on Drudge http://www.france24.com/en/20121007-catholic-leaders-gather-counter-decline-faith
A heart breaking read of what democrats use to believe, even the old timer union members. Exemplary of all Christian denominations of any serious doctrine, until birth control pills became the campus rage.
It is the secularized world that has penetrated the Church in the West that will be discussed. We see the establishment of Catholics-in-name-only running amok, piercing the pious and devout Catholic who see the attempt to extinguish the light of Christ in His Church on earth as an expected and increasing satanic attack.
We were not without warning. We are preparing for persecution and pray to stand, keeping our eyes on things above and not on earth. Many will fall.
