If Biden and Pelosi are such wonderful Catholics, why is their reaction to Roe V. Wade So different from that of Catholic leadership?
While Joe and Nancy were weeping and gnashing their teeth over the possibility of children surviving long enough to take their first breath, the Pontifical Academy of Life had a very different reaction to the news.
“The court’s opinion shows how the issue of abortion continues to arouse heated debate. The fact that a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue also challenges the whole world,” the Vatican academy wrote in a statement on June 24.
“The protection and defense of human life is not an issue that can remain confined to the exercise of individual rights, but instead is a matter of broad social significance. After 50 years, it is important to reopen a non-ideological debate on the place that the protection of life has in a civil society to ask ourselves what kind of coexistence and society we want to build,” it said.
The academy’s statement was the first official reaction to the court’s decision issued by an entity linked to the Roman Curia. Pope Francis has condemned abortion using strong language, referring to it as “murder” and on multiple occasions comparing the act of killing an unborn child to hiring a “hitman” to solve a problem. —CatholicNewsAgency
The pope has compared having an abortion to hiring a hitman. Will Nancy — who has been denied communition by the bishop in whose dioscese she lives — denounce the Pope, as less enlightened than she is?
Not surprisingly, the Catholic Church she claims to belong to isn’t looking for ways to change it back. It’s looking for ways to defend life.
This decision has been seen as an answer to prayer by many praying faithful.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
