Nuns on the Bus (also known as BS on the Bus) leader “answers” Pope Francis … sort of.

From my vantage point (excluded from the halls of power and never consulted before being named as a problem by CDF) it appears to me that these actions continue to be about both church and U.S. politics. Women religious are a soccer ball between competing church departments. None of this is really about faith. The Vatican officials continue to say that they like our work when we do direct service, but they do not like our politics when they do not align with some U.S. bishops’ hard right views.

Editor’s note: It’s not your politics, sister. It’s your abject heresies and your calling things that you do “Catholic” when they’re often, not even close. The time for political rhetoric is over. If you’re truly Catholic, then conduct your affairs accordingly. If not, the Anglicans have a slot open for you!

“After Tiller” – an intimate and heartfelt look at four doctors performing third-trimester abortions.

“We tried to frame it as clearly as possible as being a part of these doctors and seeing it from their point of view,” said Wilson, “and for them, the protesters are there kind of buzzing in the background all the time, but they are not a big presence in their lives, other than a possible threat lurking there. I think we wanted to represent the protesters in a way that was true to the doctors’ experiences of them, but we also didn’t want to make them look crazy or one-dimensional. Even though they are a small part of the doctors’ lives, we tried to treat them fairly when they are in the film.”

More about Tiller and his gruesome pals

Editor’s note: This pro-abortion propaganda piece is just too disgusting for words! The filmmakers said they didn’t want to make the PROTESTERS look crazy! What about the filmmakers themselves? Are they nuts? Couldn’t they see the wanton slaughter that was taking place, all around them? Couldn’t they smell the stench of death in those places? Didn’t they realize they were dealing with monsters? And then there’s the part where the “caring and conscientious” abortionist turns down a woman’s request for an abortion! Does anyone want to bet how many times that ever (never) happened before? Give us a break, will you?

An American Nun Responds To Vatican Criticism

On abortion

“I think the criticism of what we’re not talking about seems to me to be unfair. Because [Women] Religious have clearly given our lives to supporting life, to supporting the dignity of human persons. Our works are very much pro-life.

(Ed: Except when you actively condone and promote the destruction of unborn babies, which is what many of these “sisters” are known to do.)

We would question, however, any policy that is more pro-fetus than actually pro-life. If the rights of the unborn trump all of the rights of all of those who are already born, that is a distortion, too if there’s such an emphasis on that.

(Ed: The only other way to do this is to support abortion on demand. And that is what many of these “sisters” are all about.)

However, we have sisters who work in right-to-life issues. We also have many, many ministries that support life. We dedicate to our lives to those on the margins of society, many of whom are considered throwaway people: the impaired, the chronically mentally ill, the elderly, the incarcerated, to the people on death row.

(Ed: What she’s saying is that it’s OK to kill babies if you do other good work. Barack Obama and Planned Parenthood wholeheartedly agree!)

We have strongly spoken out against the death penalty, against war, hunger. All of those are right-to-life issues. There’s so much being said about abortion that is often phrased in such extreme and such polarizing terms that to choose not to enter into a debate that is so widely covered by other sectors of the Catholic Church and we have been giving voice to other issues that are less covered but are equally as important.

“Our concern is that right-to-life issues be seen across a whole spectrum and are not narrowly defined. … To single out one right-to-life issue and to say that that’s the only issue that defines Catholic identity, I think, is really a distortion.”

(Ed: There are no issues that are “equally as important” as the wanton destruction of human life in the womb. The old “Seamless Garment” strategy was a shabby political construct of the 1970’s and 80’s. It is no better, and equally disingenuous today!)

Editor’s note: The carefully crafted liberal doublespeak employed by this woman is blatantly obvious, as are the motives of NPR. Let’s be honest: the policies and practices of the LCWR are much more in keeping with the Socialist Democratic Party of the United States than the Roman Catholic Church.

Abortionists fictional alternative universe of death


For instance, Weber recalls a client who compared her abortion with cutting a leaf off a plant to make the whole plant stronger. She writes: “It was such an important idea. She had an equilibrium in her decision and a perception of her experience that was unusual and valuable to know about.”

Now look closely here. Does any leaf ever become its own plant? No. Are metaphors the most idiotic method of arguing possible when arguing a life-or-death issue? Yes.

Now hold up. Ignoring the fact that by “making the whole plant stronger” Weber is probably not referring to increasing a woman’s risk of breast cancer, there is a deeper issue. Weber is working with metaphors. Poetry is a beautiful thing, but this book is specifically written for women who have had abortions. Hear then, one of the various balms offered to these women. Imagine yourselves as plants, and it’ll be okay. But a woman is not a plant, and human fetuses are not leaves.

Need I point out that if in order to justify an action you must create an unreality of woman-as-agent-without-moral-capacity and fetus-as-regrowing-organ-of-said-agent, you’re probably going to get mocked by the Age of the Ultrasound?

It gets so much worse…
