I am tired of writing that Richard McBrien doesn’t get it when it comes to abortion.
He does get it.
Richard McBrien supports “a woman’s right to choose.”
He should simply say it openly instead of writing articles pretending to be a Catholic.
McBrien’s latest article asks why – why oh why? – the U.S. Catholic bishops’ conference won’t drop its opposition to Obamacare.
After all… the President signed an executive order banning federal funding for elective abortions, right?!? The President, the President himself, promised he would sign it in order to get Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) and other so-called Prolife Democrats in the House of Representatives to agree to the Senate bill.
You remember all of this. We went through it ad nauseum in December and January.
Legal experts and the National Right to Life Committee warned at the time that any U.S. federal court could easily strike down an executive order when it conflicted with the intentions of a law of this nature passed by Congress.
The U.S. bishops didn’t fall for the President’s feint.
But the nuns did.
Remember how it went?
The CHA, Network, the National Catholic Reporter (sic), and other liberal nuns’ groups – who could not wait to endorse Obamacare – did so in that nanosecond after the President cut the deal with Stupak and provided cover for “Prolife Democrats” (the term is an oxymoron).
McBrien wants the bishops to endorse Obamacare.
McBrien also defended the Phoenix nun who authorized a direct abortion in a Catholic hospital.
See the pattern?
