Stop me if you’ve heard this one: a priest, a rabbi, and a pastor walk into an abortion clinic. Whoops, a priest wasn’t in this story. But some ministers and a rabbi were at an abortion clinic. And this is not a joke, because sadly, it’s true. Yes, clergy were on hand at the opening…
Shamefully, though, fourteen Catholic senators also voted against this bill, as an enraged priest pointed out. And if you think they were all Democrats, think again. Two of these Catholic senators — Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine — openly voted against life, as well as the tenets of their church. “If they had voted as their faith (and their common humanity would dictate) this cruel and horrible practice would have been outlawed,” wrote Fr. Dwight Longenecker. He continued:
What kind of Catholic Church are we if their pastors and bishops do not stand up publicly and rebuke these fourteen politicians?
What kind of Catholic Church? Moreover, what kind of Christian church of any stripe thinks it’s appropriate to bless an abortion clinic?
Indeed, what kind of church would, could sanction this?
