I'm sorry but you can't keep laying the blame on the Council. Society, at large, was going through a major shakeup at the time the council was convened. That certain bishops were influenced by the culture may be true but the council, as a whole, cannot be taken to task.
Recall that upon his election as pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI stated that his mission would be to implement Vatican Council II. That is what we are now seeing.
I believe Christians not just Catholics,have a hardening of their hearts. The unborn doesn’t mean much to them but the environment does. All you hear is global warming,global warming, in school,TV,movies,the celebrity clowns. The cultural today is rotten and we now have the worship of the planet as the new religion. How can people not weep for 50 million dead children? As a Catholic I mourn for the lost souls who don’t care for the unborn children who have died and their lack of mercy they show by the continue support of the evil of abortion.How can anyone ask for mercy from God when they have hardened their hearts to those that are the most vulnerable,the unborn? We all will someday come before a just God,I pray hearts will change so that they can show mercy the same way they will ask for mercy!
