There’s a new push today to have secondary issues such “social” issues such as the laundry list above take the weight of precedence over abortion. And the whole death penalty thing is bunk. The Church is NOT against the death penalty when correctly applied.
Vatican critiques of the death penalty have never been against the actual punishment of death for crimes, they have only criticised its application and fairness of the system that applies it.
Those that believe that Catholicims does not understand and recognize the distinction between guilt and innocence are fools.
Those that try to bring up the tired and idiotic catch phrase statement of “how can you be anti-abortion and pro death penalty” or such are folks who can’t distinguish the difference between guilt and innocence. Catholicism quite handily makes the distinctions. THose that try to portray holding those 2 views as hypocritical to one another are simply put intellectually dishonest, or just intellectually challenged.
