Carol Marin opines over criticism of Quinn, mainly because it also applies to her.

In her Chicago Sun-Times article, Marin maintains, in-part:

Insufficiently respecting the role of women is a problem for the men who run the church.

The Vatican inquisition of American Catholic nuns comes immediately to mind. As does last year’s excommunication of Sister Margaret McBride by the bishop of Phoenix. Her crime was concluding, on the ethics committee of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Arizona, that only an abortion would save the life of a pregnant mother of four children.

As Margaret Steinfels, co-director of Religion and Culture at Fordham University, observed in the National Catholic Reporter in January, “A lot of people think the bishops haven’t the foggiest idea of what it means to be pregnant, or to be pregnant and sick, or to be pregnant and dying.”


Editor’s note: Carol Marin probably doesn’t remember the exact moment she sold out her Catholic faith for the cause of liberalism, but her article pretty much confirms it.

Not once does she mention the fact that “pro-choice” means giving license to people to willfully and wantonly slaughter innocent babies, that the men who run the church don’t need to be women to make critical moral judgments when it comes to things like abortion and murder, and that Sister McBride grievously erred in her professional judgment, because an abortion wasn’t necessary in that case, at all.

Marin also fails to mention that Personal PAC’s honoring the rape victim is merely a crass political ploy … payback for the “victim’s” willingness to act as a “poster girl” for Illinois abortion rights during Quinn’s campaign.

She (Goodman) wasn’t pregnant, and at this point, I’m beginning to doubt that she was actually raped! This IS after all, Illinois, the home state of Obama, Ryan, Resco, Blagoyevich, Daley, Durbin, and the Madigans. Stranger things have indeed, happened!

Making an emotional plea in the face of irrefutable facts to the contrary is a time-honored liberal tactic, one that works especially well in the Land of Lincoln. Marin knows that, and she has done it many, many times before, shilling for the powers that be.

If Marin or Quinn show up at my church and try to go to communion, they better bring their hand-picked, liberal, bought and paid for, Oak Park priest with them, because according to Canon 915 and Canon 212, there’s absolutely no reason why any Catholic should permit such an open, public scandal (and desecration) to take place.

A much more valid criticism of the bishops is that they’ve waited much too long to take scandalous Catholics like Marin, Quinn, Daley, Durbin, et al, to task.

When you let these guys get away with doing bad stuff for so long, their consciences get twisted, their hearts get hardened, they become emboldened, and it becomes almost impossible to correct them.

Just another example of widespread corruption and high-level stinkin’ thinkin’ in the Land of Lincoln!
