Pope Benedict: Catholic Church's "Principal" Policy Focus is Pro-Life View

| | Comments (7) | TrackBacks (0)

Via Life News I learned of these encouraging statements from the Holy Father (full Papal address can be found here):

"As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person”...

..."[S]he is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable," the pope added, referring to the church's pro-life stance...

...He called on the lawmakers to reject the society that is developing that causes people to say Christians should keep their pro-life views to themselves.

What say ye now, Tim Kaine?

Am I the only one who finds it odd that Kaine uses Catholicism to justify is opposition to the death penalty, but not abortion?

Shaun Kenney said:

No, you are not.

I'm sure Bishop Loverde and Bishop DiLorenzo find it equally odd.

Unfortunately, I doubt we'll see a release from our Virginia Catholic Conference on this anytime soon... though one can hold our for hope.

Davis said:

What makes Kaine's position on these issues even more ironic, and I double-checked the Catechism on this one, is this:

Catholic Dogma is completely opposed to abortion, but allows for the death penalty in certain cases.

I wonder if Kaine has ever tried to explain that one.

Kaine is using his faith as a political shield only when politically expedient... nothing more.

Shaun,

Did you see the "Voter Guide" the VCC put out for the 2005 elections? It was really terrible (IMHO)... and up here in the Arlington Diocese I hear they really cracked down on churches distributing outside lit (I know my church went crazy over the issue). What can be done!

Shaun Kenney said:

Send a letter to the VCC with a copy of the offending document, and ask for an letter clarifying Church teaching and asking why the VCC will not endorse pro-life values.

When you don't receive one, send a letter Bishop's Loverde and DiLorenzo.

When you still don't receive a response, send a letter to the USCCB.

Then, after all four venues have ignored you, take copies of all four letters and send a copy to the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome...

Have you done this before? Sounds like it...
