What’s so radical or extreme about properly burying the dead?

As part of their week long anti-Islamic hate fest, Fox News braying heads continue to bray about the dangers of “radical Islam.” So it was interesting to see that their “news” programming would feature a man who is part of an all male religious group dedicated to extremist views that pose a real threat to women and doctors. No, I’m not talking about some radical jihadist mullah, but Catholic priest Fr. Frank Pavone who is part of an order of Catholic priests devoted to putting an end to safe, legal abortion.

Pavone was last seen on Fox touting his daring “rescue” of a terminally ill Canadian child. Today, he was on Fox’s “news” show “Happening Now” where he spoke about his desire to obtain the bodies from Gosnell’s clinic so he can give them a Catholic funeral. While he seems benign enough, his writings say otherwise. But he’s pro-life and that’s all that matters on “fair & balanced” Fox News which is always happy to provide him with a pulpit for “pro-life” propaganda.

Jon Scott reported that Pavone has contacted the judge, in the Gosnell case, about receiving the bodies found in the clinic. Mollie Henneberg provided more information on the “pro-life” priest’s request. While the remains were, medically and legally speaking, fetuses, Hennenberg used the more inflammatory, anti-choice term “baby.” Fetus is the term used in the Grand Jury Report which Hennenberg referenced in describing the remains found at the clinic. She reported that Pavone has asked the medical examiner if he can have bodies after the court proceedings have ended.

Video of Pavone was shown in which he said that these are bodies of “real human beings who were killed” and that they need to be “honored” after they were “dishonored.” He added that his efforts will “raise consciousness” about “real killings.” Henneberg reported that Pavone wants permission to talk with Gosnell. After she concluded, Scott muttered “what a horrible story.”

Editor’s note: Instead of decrying the horrors of Gosnell’s murderous abortion mill, the writer chooses to indict Father Frank Pavone for an act of basic human decency; performing one of the Corporal Works of Mercy.

The Corporal Works of Mercy

Feed the hungry
Give drink to the thirsty
Clothe the naked
Shelter the homeless
Visit the sick
Visit the imprisoned
Bury the dead

The level coarseness, ignorance, depravity and basic inhumanity to be found on the pro-abort side never ceases to “boggle” the mind.
