According to Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor (yes, really), the head of the Catholic Church in
I have some points of my own.
- People making the extremely distressing decision to abort due to their life circumstances is NOT the same as the Holocaust. To compare this to the systematic genocide of a race of people is unconscionable. In any case, it is a personal matter. So shut up.
- Speaking of the Holocaust, Cardinal, are you a spokesman for the SAME Catholic Church that pretty much just shrugged its shoulders while said atrocity was occurring? Yes, yes you are. There was always a good time for your church to speak out about the Nazis. The 1930s, for example.
- Oh, and help me out here because I'm still confused. Is this also the same Catholic Church that routinely covers-up acts of child rape (let's call it what it is) within its realms? Yes, yes it is. Therefore shut the fuck up about protecting the weak.
- Interesting point about Terri Schiavo and the sanctity of human life. Perhaps if you lifted your squeamish view of embryonic research we might make a bit more progress in stem cell growth that could enable mankind to conquer critical brain injury and save us all from this grisly pantomime. Just a thought.
