Left-wing Jesuits at America have finally “lost it”

According to the editors of America Magazine:

Four steps are necessary for the U.S. church to escape the strengthening riptide of sectarian conflict and re-establish trust between universities and the hierarchy. First, the bishops’ discipline about speakers and awards at Catholic institutions should be narrowed to exclude from platforms and awards only those Catholics who explicitly oppose formal Catholic teaching. Second, in politics we must reaffirm the distinction between the authoritative teaching of moral principles and legitimate prudential differences in applying principles to public life. Third, all sides should return to the teaching of the Second Vatican Council and Pope Paul VI that in politics there are usually several ways to attain the same goals. Finally, church leaders must promote the primacy of charity among Catholics who advocate different political options. For as the council declared, “The bonds which unite the faithful are mightier than anything which divides them” (“Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World,” No. 92).

Editor’s note: What are these guys smoking?

Here’s my four steps: 1) Keep those who advocate immoral and non-Catholic political and/or religious positions OUT of Catholic universities, no matter WHO they might be and no matter with whom they might be associated. 2) Keep those who advocate positions contrary to the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church (ESPECIALLY POLITICIANS and Professors) as far away from Catholic universities as possible. 3) Religion is not politics. Abortion is not health care. Universities should prepare students to be able to tell the difference. Christ demands that we Catholics know the truth and stand up for it … on campus or off. 4) Sometime, loving one’s neighbor means engaging in fraternal correction … especially when it comes to fundamental issues like abortion. Students need to know that there is no common ground between life and death. Both are absolute opposites. Charity demands that Catholics choose life, without reservation.

The guys at America should know better! Abortion remains primarily an ethical and moral issue that has so far claimed the lives of nearly a third of today’s under thirty population.

Abortion is no more a political issue than the Holocaust was, during World War II. Abortion remains the greatest moral evil of our times.

Pro-death politicians and the editors of America would LIKE us to believe that abortion is a political issue, but many of us are simply NOT that stupid! Abortion is a totally immoral act that just happens to have been temporarily decriminalized by a corrupt government.  But it will not stand, forever.  

Until then, we fight.

Want dialogue? Stop the killing. Then we can talk!
