What will all those Catholic politicians that hold their religious views on abortion private and advocate for abortion in public do with this?
Someone find out what Speaker Nancy Pelosi, nominal Catholic and Biblical Scholar, has to say about this.
CNN’s chief knucklehead, Chris Cuomo, has used his Catholic faith as a bludgeon in an attempt to bully Rick Santorum into agreeing that abortion should be legal no matter what. It didn’t go so well for one of them. (Hint: it was the Second Dumbest Man on television who often puts his foot in his mouth and not the former Republican Senator.)
An Archbishop from Argentina is saying some dang good pro-life stuff.
Archbishop Hector Aguer spoke some pretty harsh words about choosing a candidate in the upcoming Argentinian election on the television show, Keys To A Better World.
He said, “the abortion issue is one of the chief topics to consider. Opting for a pro-abortion candidate or for a party that includes abortion in its platform is a mortal sin.”
A mortal sin in the Catholic faith is a grave sin that is committed deliberately and with full knowledge which separates the sinner from God. If there is no repentance of the mortal sin, it is sufficient to send the person to hell.
The Catholic Church has been consistent in their pro-life views for decades, and even Pope Francis, (who has revealed himself to be a bit of a lefty activist,) has said that abortion, even of a sick child, “is like hiring a hitman.” He also said that the pro-life position is not just a Christian or Catholic one, but the one that is based on justice and right reason.
Archbishop Auger goes further. It’s not enough to just not have an abortion yourself, but your vote matters. He says that Catholics should not vote for pro-abortion candidates or parties.
“We cannot vote for those parties or candidates who have declared themselves in favor of abortion,” he said. “They are going to try to play dumb, of course, but we must demand that they declare their position on this issue and as soon as we know, we will decide our vote.”
“Even if they have no ethical or religious conscience, we do,” he continued, “It is a mortal sin to vote for a party or a candidate who supports abortion, and I will argue this with anyone, because if not, what will become of us? This is about the life of a defenseless human being, innocent, the poorest of the poor, in this we cannot compromise.”
Someone should ask Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand who recently got on her own moral high-horse on the abortion issue what she thinks of this. She recently said that opposing abortion is “morally unacceptable” and akin to racism.
I wonder if she’d care to debate the Archbishop on the issue of the morality of abortion? Or maybe a bold Catholic on American soil that agrees with Archbishop Aguer?
Well, that might be a good goal for her once she drops out of the race to be the Democratic nominee, which should really be any day now.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
