Sounds like the left-wing loon rag, the New York Times, rather than a Catholic newspaper. I guess that the Tablet would have been for Hitler on the
“common good” theory. Tom
I think it is time that we all stopped covering The Tablet. It has gotten to the point where no one with half a brain thinks that they are a Catholic publication, so why treat them as such?
I’m not sure if it’s more disturbing that the Tablet is apparently cool with state-funded abortion, or that they think opposing abortion is a specifically “Catholic issue.” Good grief.
Strange wording for something to be a specifically universal issue. It only affects a certain segment of the population: everybody.
At this rate, their sobriquet might devolve from The Bitter Pill to The RU-486.
The Tablet is a regular feature on the community room coffee tables in greying religious communities everywhere.
I’m not at all surprised by this. I’m, nevertheless, outraged.
If this is not stopped, Catholics will have much more to worry about along with abortion. I personally believe this is more about control than about health. It cannot be said enough, or loudly enough, that abortion is not health care. Statists do not care a whit about your health, only about getting you out of the way if you are not “productive” by their materialistic standard.
Blahdidy blahdidy blah… ceterum autem censeo Tabulam esse delendam.
In a poorly-argued piece written for a recent issue of 30 Giorni, Cardinal Cottier erroneously reasoned that President Obama’s search for a “common ground” between proponents and opponents of abortion-on-demand in the U.S. can be defended out of a traditional Catholic political ethics based on the promotion of the “common good”. The Cardinal’s reasoning assumes, incredibly, that “common ground” and “common good” are somehow correlative concepts in Catholic social ethics. It seems that the editors of The Tablet are following the Cardinal’s faulty logic.
I think those on the Liberal side seem to think that being against Obama’s healthcare reforms means that you are automatically pro-republican, pro-business anti-social justice etc…
They feel that Abortion does not trump everything else but unfortunatly it does! I’m not somekind of wooly liberal and if it was purely a matter of helping those who simply cannot affoard the cost of private healthcare then I’d be totally for it. There is nothing instrincically evil or un-christian about state funded or socialized healthcare and it is clear that the current market driven arrange ment is not working . Indeed the NHS was founded at a time when the UK Labour Party owed more to Methodism than Marx.
However, that is not the deal on the table and the sooner the likes of the Tablet realize this the better.
