New U.S. Vatican Ambassador Diaz just another lying pro-abort?

Pro-life Catholics have had a reason to be concerned about Diaz because he was a member of Obama’s Catholic advisory team during the 2008 presidential campaign and helped cover up his pro-abortion record during the campaign.

The National Catholic Register complained about Diaz and abortion after the Senate confirmed him to the ambassador position.

“The Catholic theology professor’s beliefs regarding the life issues and other moral issues, where President Barack Obama’s stances differ sharply with Church teachings, remain something of a cipher,” it said.

The newspaper said it appears that Diaz “is a proponent of Obama’s ‘common ground’ approach on the life issues, which in practice consists of implementing pro-abortion policies and appointing pro-abortion personnel to key positions while proclaiming rhetorically that Obama would like to see the number of abortions reduced through the implementation of social policies that allegedly would discourage abortions.”

In 2006, Diaz served as theological consultant to the Catholic Alliance for the Common Good.

The group eventually came under fire from Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver, who said it had “done a disservice to the Church, confused the natural priorities of Catholic social teaching, undermined the progress pro-lifers have made, and provided an excuse for some Catholics to abandon the abortion issue instead of fighting within their parties and at the ballot box to protect the unborn.”

Obama isn’t alone in earning Diaz’s support, as he also endorsed pro-abortion Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius and her nomination to become Obama’s health secretary.

Diaz was one of several Catholic college professors to support her bid, which prompted Cardinal Newman Society president Patrick Reilly to say they were “giving comfort and aid to those whose stated goals are to advance policies directly opposed to Catholic teachings on life issues.”
