Bernardin’s “Seamless Garment” was always INTENDED to focus attention away from abortion.

If some truly pro-life bishop had propounded the “Seamless Garment” metaphor, it might have been acceptable. But Bernardin was one of those Jadot bishops who always treated pro-lifers like the scum of the earth. One of the great pro-lifers of all time, Joe Scheidler, has lived and worked in Chicago for decades. Bernardin never acknowledged the existence of Joe Scheidler, unless it was to sneer at him.

The “Seamless Garment” was always made up of abortion—and a bunch of debatable, negotiable liberal issues. It never was about the inviolability of innocent human life.

Thanks, I was just getting ready to say the same thing but you beat me to it.
