Catholic means Prolife

That's the subtitle of an essay by Fr. Thomas D. Williams, recently published on National Review Online. Here's how it begins:

You are unlikely to ever come upon a group called Mohammedans for Polytheism or Environmentalists for Seal Slaughter. A Muslim who espouses a multiplicity of deities has, ipso facto, placed himself outside the Muslim confession. Polytheism is not an Islamic thing. An environmentalist who patronizes anti-ecological activities is not an environmentalist at all, but a subversive. This is because the monikers “Muslim” and “environmentalist” mean something; they carry with them a series of necessary consequences. Certain terms — like “Muslim” and “polytheism” — simply can’t be squared, and combining them is nonsensical.

The recent ecclesiastical backlash to Nancy Pelosi’s unfortunate remarks on Meet the Press should have surprised no one, least of all Speaker Pelosi herself. Her attempts to squeeze abortion rights into Catholic moral teaching were no more credible than trying to pass apartheid off as a legitimate goal of the civil rights movement. The bishops — some seven have weighed in on the matter so far — had no choice but to speak out.

Great analogies.

Mr. Yacaman,

The Church teaches that only One is worthy of worship and that is the eternal Godhead, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. No one, angelic or human (of which all saints are human) are worthy to receive the same type of worship as our God.

I feel so sorry for your daughter. A great crime as been committed against her. However, murdering an innocent child because of the crimes of the father is absolutley not a Catholic teaching.

I hope your concern for your daughter and the baby is not actually based on you and your familie's personal embarrasment. It should be with the greatest wonder and gratitude that you all should raise that wonderfully wrought child. The child has already had one great crime against it; it's father is a rapist, and will not raise him/her. Don't add a second crime by murdering your own grandchild.

MARY THE REASONABLE ANSWER IS NONE TO HUMAN RELIGIUOS KIND IS THAT HE WAS FULLFILING SCRIPTURES BUT STILL THERE IS THE POSIBILITY THAT HE WAS NOT BORN OF HER I MEAN IN ALL DO REALITY IF JESUS WAS THERE AT THE BEGINING OF CREATION OR IF JESUS HIMSELF CREATED THE WORLD OR IF IT IS JUST PLAIN BLANK HOW THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS IS ABOVE ALL CREATION THAT IS WHAT JESUS IS ASKING YOU STEVE NICODEMOUS ASK THE SAME QUESTION CAN A GROWN MAN BE BORN AGAIN RELIGIOUS PEOPLE GO ON SAYING SCRIPTURES SAD BUT IT IS COMPETIBLE TO TEACH THAT BECAUSE ROMAN CATHOLIC VENERATES FATIMA VENERATES GUADALUPE AND SO ON SO IT IS RIGHT TO PRESENT THESE ANGELS WITH CHILD FOR INSTANCE IT WAS NOT THE VIRGIN CARMEN WHO HAD CHRIST SO WHY PRESENT HER WITH CHILD MAYBE THE CHILD SHE IS PRESENTED IT WITH IS A DEMON YOU NO I NO SEVERAL STORIES OF LIKE PERSAY SATANISTS AND THE KUKLUX KLAN THEY PRAY TO THE DEVIL THAT HE MIGHT SEND HIS CHILD TO THE EARTH AND I AM NOT TRYING TO INSTIGATE THAT JESUS IS DEMONIC BUT WHO SAYS THE HOLYT SPIRIT NEVER CLEANSED SAINT MARY THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN THE HOLY GHOST COMES HE CLEANSES THE TEMPLE SO IS THAT WHAT ACTUALY HAPEN THAT THE ANGEL WARNED MARY THAT THERE WAS CERTAIN ETERNAL DEMONIC ACTIVITY AND THAT THERE WAS SATANS ANGELS TRYING TO POSES HER BODY TO DESTROY HER SPIRITUALY BY MAKING THINK THAT GOD WANTED TO INCARNATE IN HER AND FOR HER TO HAVE HIS CHILD DOES THAT NOT SOUND LIKE A PERVERT I MEAN NEED DOES GOD HAVE OF INCARNATING IN SAINT MARY THAT IS THE DOMEST THEORY I HAVE EVER HEARD OF A GOD WHO DIES FOR SINERS THEN HE SUPOSLEY ABONDONS HIS HEAVENLY THRONE TO BE REBORN OF A VIRGIN AND THEN TO TOP UF HE SENDS HIS SON TO DIE ON A CROSS NO NO NO STEVE DOES KIND STORYS ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE OVER 6 BILLION PEOPLE AWAY FROM ROMAN CATHOLIC PERMANENTLY BECAUSE LIFE SAYS IT IS ONE WAY BUT YOU GUYS IN THE SAME DEMONIC WAY THAT SATAN PRESENTED HIMSELF BEFORE JESUS THAT IS WHAT YOU GUYS DO SCRIPTURES SAYS SCRIPTURES SAYS WHAT EVER HAPEN TO COMON SENSE SAYS THAT IT IS TO MUCH I HOPE GOD REALYS GRAVES WITH A STRONG HAND ALL CATHOLICS AND PUTS A STRANGLYING HAND FOR ALL ETERNITY IN THAT TYPE OF PERVERSE JUDGEMENT BECAUSE IT CAN NOT BE THAT GOD IS REVEALING ONE THING TO ME WHILE THE VATICAN IS JUST IS ITS ETERNAL NOT CARING MISTERIC MODE BECAUSE BELIVE IT OR NOT THE VATICAN DOES HAVE THESE SOLID DOCTRINE AND THE REASON IT WAS DOING IT IT IS BECAUSE IT FULLFILLS A TIME THEN IT HAS TO CHANGE BUT IT DOES NOT WORK IF THE TEACHING DOES NOT COME FROM HEAVEN /.

If a child is the result of a rape, offer to any family member or friend, but not aborte. After all the child did not ask to be born. Before a child of a rapist, God already knew in the womb. God the Father is first, second father here on earth is who creates the third is the biological father.
Next to God, not vai missing father here on earth to create a child.

Here in Brazil, abortion is often illegal. And our politicians want to approve the abortion, including some Protestant politicians newpentencostais.

listen, I dont believe in abortion, but it's different in rape, would you like to know you were the product of a rape??

Therefore, an innocent child should suffer death all because of the crimes of the father?

What kind of morality is it (and justice, for that matter) that would seek the penalty of death where the crime of the innocent child is simply for being born?
