Bishops Correct Speaker Nancy Pelosi: 'On the Separation of Sense and State'
By Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. and Bishop James D. Conley
"Abortion kills an unborn, developing human life. It is always gravely evil, and so are the evasions employed to justify it."
DENVER, CO (Archdiocese of Denver) - The Bishops of the Archdiocese of Denver, Colorado, site of the Democratic convention, issued a letter directed to the faithful of the Archdiocese of Denver entitled "Separation of Sense and State: A Clarification for the People of the Church in Northern Colorado.We set forth this fine letter for the readers of Catholic Online in its entirety:
To Catholics of the Archdiocese of Denver:
Catholic public leaders inconvenienced by the abortion debate tend to take a hard line in talking about the "separation of Church and state." But their idea of separation often seems to work one way.
In fact, some officials also seem comfortable in the role of theologian. And that warrants some interest,not as a "political" issue, but as a matter of accuracy and justice.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is a gifted public servant of strong convictions and many professional skills. Regrettably, knowledge of Catholic history and teaching does not seem to be one of them.

I was able to order from another site, and that site claimed it has >20 copies. That is not very many copies of a book that was just released 13 days ago...
He’s just a newbie who got a Freeper welcome, much like I did when I first joined back in 2000. If he’s anything like the paratroopers I know, he’ll survive.
Here’s a little history on the origins of one of the 82nd Airborne’s own -
“The Devils in Baggy Pants”
Entry found in the diary of a German officer killed at Anzio:
“American parachutists — devils in baggy pants — are less than 100 meters from my outpost line. I can’t sleep at night; they pop up from nowhere and we never know when or how they will strike next. Seems like the black-hearted devils are everywhere...”
If you know of any pedophile priests (actually ephebophiles - but whatever!) that have not been gotten rid of already - please notify the police and it will get taken care of.
So you can compare notes?
We have had trouble with Moonbats, Trolls, and media coming into FreeRepublic causing trouble. For example, the ruckus in Maryland over a Democratic pretending to be a conservative getting an aid of the then Republican governor fired (and allowing the Washington Post access to private Freeper emails).
This was the case of MD4Bush. MD4Bush was clearly a sneak attack on Freerepublic...
In apology, I probably should not be too sensitive about issues such as attacks on the Church. I really should.
Thanks...it was an off handed insensitive post and I too apologize ;-)
