The head of the faux-catholic, pro-abortion, Soros-funded “Catholics for Choice”, Jon O’Brien, ought to be publicly corrected by our bishops in these USA and then denied Holy Communion according to can. 915 until he publicly recant his spiritually dangerous positions.
His recent letter to the New York Times (Hell’s Bible) contains a falsehood.

Being a Catholic in the Time of Francis
To the Editor:
Peter Manseau raises several important issues in “What It Means to Be Catholic Now” (Op-Ed, March 10), not least the question “Who is a Catholic?” Catholicism has long been defined by the Latin phrase “in varietate concordia” — “unity in diversity.”
All Catholics are connected by the requirement to follow our consciences as the ultimate arbiter when it comes to moral decision-making. That leads many of us to disagree with our bishops while still retaining our Catholicism. [I am sure you readers see what is wrong with this. Catholics must form their consciences according to the mind of the Church and, even when they struggle to understand and grasp the Church’s difficult teachings, they must accede to what the Church teaches.]
There are no political benchmarks, attendance records or litmus tests for being a Catholic. We are Catholic because of our baptism, and nothing can ever change that.
President, Catholics for Choice
Washington, March 10, 2014
This is a purposely misleading statement. It calls for a correction.
